How to Feel Better in Your Body

Today I wanted to talk about noticing the good stuff. Because noticing the bad stuff is easy. Too easy. Sometimes I have to fight this feeling that pulls me down. The feeling that everything’s wrong and I can do nothing about it. You know… when you’re feeling down, and it seems you have a dark cloud above your head, that follows you, wherever you go? And suddenly something happens – you drink your favorite drink, or notice a beautiful image, or remember a good memory – and a ray of sunshine enters that cloud. And suddenly, just for one second, the world seems great again, and full of possibilities. But the cloud is big and dense, and it quickly covers the ray of sunshine. And in an instant, you’re feeling miserable again. But now you remember the sunshine, and you know it’s there, so close… so close, but even so,…

Do Everything You Desire + Winter Trend

Today I’m talking about new beginnings, again :) I’m thinking about taking an interior design course this year (and maybe architecture, next year). Another one I’d like to take is fashion design. These are all experiences, things I think I want, but I still have some doubts. In fact, I’ve always had this doubt and I’ve spoken about it before here. Fashion or Architecture, were my two favorite options, in my teen years. This after eliminating the other two I liked: Journalism and Dance. The dance part I keep practicing, because I love sports and working out. I always did sports, except when I was in Macau for 4 years. And even then I went to the Hyatt Hotel gym. I also swam and did sauna, at the hotel, that I loved. When I was little I loved to roller-skate, bike, run, climb trees, go on “dangerous” hikes ;) I…

Accept Where You Are, Get What You Want

Sometimes it’s hard to accept where we’re at. And for me it became harder after my 40th birthday. Because – “Hello! I’m 40, ain’t I supposed to be at my destination by now?” My vague idea of what I wanted to happen in my life, didn’t get me to where I thought I wanted to be now. The truth is I’m not even sure that what I want is the best for me, because somethings I realized I didn’t really want some of my goals. The other day I read about how, when we reach a certain age and we still don’t have our dreams of having this or that (the ideal house, car, and all the things), maybe it’s better to try to understand what we REALLY want. Because maybe that’s not that. I didn’t like that idea, like I had to give up my dreams after a certain…

How to Have More Time For Your Image & Style (and Other Stuff)

Today I want to tell you about having all the time in the world. For a long time, I hated every household chore – doing the dishes was the one I hated the most, closely followed by all others like: cooking food doing the laundry ironing – this one I still refuse to do ;) etc. And for a long time I thought it was because they’re were boring and repetitive. BORING. And I don’t like anything boring ;) But lately, I’m starting to enjoy more these tasks… at least some of them. I thought about it and I realized it’s because I stopped having so much urgency about time. Because for a lot of time I felt I didn’t have enough time… lol Some phrases I kept saying: I don’t have time for that There’s never enough time Time flies Etc. And as “there’s never enough time”, I had…

Discover What You Desire, Change Your Life and Style

Have you noticed what you REALLY desire? Yesterday I was telling my kids about how now I’m listening much more to my intuion and desires. I noticed this because now I’m taking surf lessons (as you probably already know, because I’ve been talking about it ;)), and what’s funny is that I remember that I always loved surf things. I loved surf swimsuits, the boards, wallets and everything related to surf. The colors, the prints. But it never crossed my mind to surf, until now. Now that I listen better to myself and that I’m starting to know better what’s important to me. Knowing what we want and desire is one of the most important things to be happy. But it isn’t always easy to see this, because we are too distracted. There’s a quote I like a lot, which is: “I dare you to spend one hour with yourself”…
