Estou cansada de compreender sempre os outros.
De tentar perceber porque as pessoas têm determinados comportamentos, o que se passará, se terão algum problema, se estarão doentes.
Estou cansada de entender todas as razões e mais alguma.
Estou cansada de ser compreensiva.
E a mim quem me compreende?!

The power of three little words

Just three little words... most of the time the hardest to say... most of the time not said at all...

I'LL BE THERE - Being there for another person is the greatest gift we can give. When we are truly present for other people, important things happen to them and to us. We are renewed in love and friendship. We are restored emotionally and spiritually. 'Being there' is at the very very core of civility.

I MISS YOU - Perhaps more marriages could be saved and strengthened if couples simply and sincerely said to each other, "I miss you." This powerful affirmation tells partners (and friends too) they are wanted, needed, desired and loved.

I RESPECT YOU - Respect is another way of showing love. Respect conveys the feeling that another person is a true equal. It is a powerful way to affirm the importance of a relationship.

MAYBE YOU'RE RIGHT - This phrase is highly effective in diffusing an argument and restoring frayed emotions. The flip side of "maybe you're right" is the humility of admitting "maybe I'm wrong." In portuguese it's typical to say "dar o braço a torcer" =)

PLEASE FORGIVE ME - Many broken relationships could be restored and healed if people would admit their mistakes and ask for forgiveness. All of us are vulnerable to faults, foibles and failures. A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is but saying, in other words, that he is wiser today than he was yesterday. To fail is human and nodoby is perfect. But if we try to heal things we become even more human.

I THANK YOU - Gratitude is an exquisite form of courtesy. People who enjoy the companionship of good, close friends are those who don't take daily courtesies for granted. They are quick to thank their friends for their many expressions of kindness. On the other hand, people whose circle of friends is severely constricted often do not have the attitude of gratitude.

COUNT ON ME - "A friend is one who walks in when others walk out," Loyalty is an essential ingredient for true friendship; it is the emotional glue that bonds people. Those who are rich in their relationships tend to be steady and true friends. When troubles come, a good friend is there, indicating "you can count on me."

LET ME HELP - The best of friends see a need and try to fill it. When they spot a hurt they do what they can to heal it. Without being asked, they pitch in and help.

I UNDERSTAND YOU - People become closer and enjoy each other more if they feel the other person accepts and understands them. Letting others know in so many little ways that you understand him or her is one of the most powerful tools for healing your relationship.

GO FOR IT - Some of your friends may be non conformists, have unique projects and unusual hobbies. Support them in pursuing their interests. Rather than urging your loved ones to conform, encourage their uniqueness-everyone has dreams that no one else has.

I suppose the 3 little words that you were expecting to see have to be reserved for those who are special; that is I LOVE YOU.

Every words i wrote before are just three words... simply three words... but why are they so hard to say?! (sometimes and in some ocasions)

Treasure Each Moment

To appreciate the value of one year, ask a student who didn’t pass math.

To appreciate the value of one month, ask a mother whose baby was born prematurely.

To appreciate the value of one week, ask the overworked teacher who’s home on spring break.

To appreciate the value of one day, ask an hourly worker who has four children to feed.

To appreciate the value of one hour, ask the child who’s waiting for her father to come home from work.

To appreciate the value of one minute, ask the traveler who missed his flight.

To appreciate the value of one second, ask a person who survived a car accident.

To appreciate the value of one millisecond, ask the silver medal winner in the Olympics.

Time waits for no one - not celebrities, not millionaires, not royalty, not anyone. Appreciate every moment you have and know how precious each day is.

The ultimate truths

Whenever I find the key to success, someone changes the lock.

To err is human, to forgive is not a company policy.

The road to success…….. is always under construction.

Alcohol doesn't solve any problems, but if you think again, neither does milk.

In order to get a loan, you first need to prove that you don't need it.

All the desirable things in life are either illegal, expensive or fattening.

Since light travels faster than sound, people appear brighter before you hear them speak.

Everyone has a scheme of getting rich….. which never works.

If at first you don't succeed… Destroy all evidence that you ever tried.

You can never determine which side of the bread to butter. If it falls down, it will always land on the buttered side.

Anything dropped on the floor will roll over to the most inaccessible corner.

As soon as you mention something…… if it is good, it is taken…. If it is bad, it happens. He who has the gold, makes the rules ---- Murphy's golden rule.

If you come early, the bus is late. If you come late…… the bus is still late.

Once you have bought something, you will find the same item being sold somewhere else at a cheaper rate.

When in a queue, the other line always moves faster and the person in front of you will always have the most complex of transactions.

If you have paper, you don't have a pen……. If you have a pen, you don't have paper…… if you have both, no one calls you.

All buses are crowded. However, all buses in opposite direction always go empty.

The door bell or your mobile will always ring when you are in the bathroom.

After a long wait for bus nr. 20, two 20 number buses will always pull in together and the bus which you get in will be crowded than the other.

If your exam is tomorrow, there will be a power cut tonight.

The last person to be fired or quit is responsible for all the errors until another person is fired or quits.

Irrespective of the direction of the wind, the smoke from the cigarette will always tend to go to the non-smoker.

Quem sou?

Sou alguém que nasceu
e pouco viveu.
Sou quem ama
e quem anseia ser amada.
Sou quem brinca...
Sou quem chora
quando me magoam
o corpo, a alma e o coração.
Sou quem sofre mais...
E quem mais alegremente vive...

Sou alegre, sou triste,
sou um ser pequeno,
pouco vivido
e com muita esperança para dar.
Sou quem procura uma sorte,
um carinho, um calor.
Sou o que aparento ser.
Sou o que desejo.
Sou o que sou.

Sou... eu.

You found me

You found me
When no one else was lookin'
How did you know just where I would be?
Yeah, you broke through
All of my confusion
The ups and the downs
And you still didn't leave
I guess that you saw what nobody could see
You found me
And I was hiding'
Til you came along
And showed me where I belong

Para dedicar a alguém que espero um dia conhecer "daquela" maneira. Quando encontrar essa pessoa (prai daqui a 15 mil anos...), hei-de dedicar-lhe esta música na íntegra! =) (desculpem a lamechice)

Campanha do Euromilhões em França

Como isto já estava a ficar um pouco degradante e a roçar o pessimismo a 100%, decidi animar a coisa com a divulgação de algumas imagens da campanha do Euromilhões em França...

Chegará a excentricidade a este ponto? ;)
Divirtam-se! Ah, e vão sonhando... =P

Hoje eu vou apenas sorrir quando vir o teu rosto, e rir, memso que sinta vontade de chorar...

Esta manhã eu vou deixar de lado a roupa para lavar, pegra em ti e levar-te ao parque para brincar...
Esta tarde eu vou apenas desligar o telefone, manter o computador desligado e sentar-me contigo no quintal a lançar bolas de sabão...
E, quando chegar a noite, vou segurar-te nos meus braços e contar-te a história de como tu nasceste e como eu gosto de ti...
Esta noite eu vou apenas aconchegar-me ao teu lado por horas e perder os meus shows favoritos na tv...
E, quando eu te der um beijo de boa noite, eu vou apenas apertar-te um pouquinho mais forte por um pouquinho mais tempo...
E é então que eu vou apenas dar graças por ter podido simplesmente viver mais um dia contigo.

O (meu) sorriso enganoso (?)


Sorri, quando a dor te torturar...
E a saudade atormentar...
Os teus dias tristonhos, vazios...
Sorri, quando tudo terminar...
Quando mais nada restar...
Do teu sonho encantador...
Sorri, quando o sol perder a luz...
e sentires uma cruz...
Nos teus ombros cansados, doloridos...
Sorri, vai mentindo à tua dor...
e ao notar que tu sorris...
Todo o mundo irá supor...
que és feliz!
(Charles Chaplin)
