I have been busy and as usual my compulsive behaviour has taken me to other shores and I have learned new skills for when I’m old, I am learning to knit and crochet. I have learned when small with my grandmother and decided I would learn again. Chess I learned with my grandfather too but learned again with my husband. We used to make gigantic competitions listening to classical music and drinking wine on the winter cold days until I got so irritated from loosing that I bit his head but it’s a good story to explain my competitive side once I start playing games. About CINDERS it’s that us human beings in general make choices in life and once living through our choices we tend to self-pity ourselves. It’s funny how reality crashes on us sometimes. Well it’s getting cold now and I still believe that if it’s worth it then you’ll have to deal with a little bit of reality because the pink glass or “La vie en rose” can be just as debilitating as not acting to reach your dreams. So long for now, reality hits me once more. In a hurry as usual but better for talking about it.
LIVE FAST,DIE YOUNG AND HAVE NICE CORPSE
I have lived by this quote when younger. My daddy died when I was 17 years old and he was 39 and seven days before he would complete 40 years old and seven days after I completed 17 years old. At the time I felt a sort of lightness as if I was flying and free and maybe it is because I knew my dad was flying free. To love and to care is to create roots and shackles of responsibility for once again I have to call for my most prized greek philosophers and the theory that whatever you posses does posses you creating a lack of freedom. We all want freedom and at the same time We want to love and be loved and in the paradox of our eternal bottomless pit of desires and ambitions resides the unobtainable reality…

Sir Ian McKellen — who has earned a reputation of late for showing up in random places and doing awesome things (typically with his pal and sometimes co-star Patrick Stewart) — stopped by the Chew Valley School in England today and addressed the assembled masses. Instead of rambling on as school speakers tend to do, McKellen simply stood by a window and asked, “If you don’t do your revision properly, do you know what will happen?” After waiting a beat, the Lord of the Rings star summoned his best Gandalf impersonation and bellowed, “You. Shall. Not. Pass!” (Sidenote: Is it still an impersonation if you’re impersonating a character that you yourself originated?)
Anyhow, it’s entirely unclear why exactly McKellen was at the school, but any excuse for him to belt out iconic declarations from Lord of the Rings in front of a bunch of giddy British schoolchildren is…

A mermaid’s tale and a maid’s tail
So I have vanished for a while but the truth is I’ve been busy and I haven’t been inspired to write. I good friend of mine said that to be creative you have to be a bit melancholic and I agree. I’ve been busy taking control over certain things. I took control over what I eat and am happy now with my body and myself. I was out of control, eating like an overfed fish, I wouldn’t fit my clothes anymore and I was so sad. I wanted to find myself but all my actions were contrary and I was shifting far away from my goals. My body wasn’t answering and I didn’t know how to change that vicious circle. Then suddenly the perspective of change, moving houses, organizing and giving to charity all that I wasn’t wearing for many years, waking up at six in the morning and being in control of time and not letting it control me. So I am changing, like the snake of time, shedding the scales and growing my inner power.
I lost the weight that bothered me and I control time. My dressing room doesn’t look like a war zone and I’ve been experimenting on using my creativity instead of my credit card. My daughter asked me for a mermaid’s tail to use it for a bath, looking on amazon I found a mermaid tail that cost no more and no less than £54 pounds so I decided to dust the sewing machine and went to a farmer’s market where I knew they had fabrics. The result is that I only spent £8 and she was so proud of her tail. I bet you if I had bought one so expensive she wouldn’t like it as much. In one afternoon of SINGER’s manual and a few pricks on my fingers I finished the tail.
I dye my own hair when in England because I am really loyal to my hairdresser in Brazil. So I decided to dye my hair on Friday and forgot about it the minute I left the bathroom so when I came back home at night the bathroom did look like a murder scene with brown hair dye staining the bath tub, I tried to clean and couldn’t AAAHHHHH!!!! Today I sprayed the bath tub with vanish for clothes and RESULT it was a miracle. Here is the tip if you ever had the same problem…. Vanish for stained fabric is a miracle in the bath tub!!!! YEAHHHHH!!!
Have a great Sunday and a great week!
So as the mother of a girl and being a girl, I find myself in a web of princess crazed mania where my biggest nightmare is what else is there now? First love was Cinderella, so here I go and buy the movie and then I discover movies II and III which I managed to not buy. Books are a must for the bedtime stories, and then the dress was very important along with the Barbie or Disney's version "Barbie" princess that lights up but not much fun since their legs are constrained but the light apparatus.
Then it was a mixture in my head of Sophia the first, sleeping beauty, Alice in wonderland, snow-white, ... You name it!
I've got to confess that until I read the books at least three nights in a roll I feel very entranced in the fantasy world of Evil and good, princes that will fight for the princess and they will marry and live happily ever after... The end...
But what if I told you that once my daughter has the movie she feels too scared to watch it so what do I do? Oh yes now it's Elsa (Disney) based on the ICE QUEEN from Danish Hans Christian Andersen
But the truth is that it never ends ! And could start criticising the industry here and then capitalism and modern days ! But I will digress from the subject in place.
So dress from Elsa, earrings and the thing is trendy and difficult to get! Not to mention expensive!
What happens to us girls when we grow up? Yes you got it, we keep hoping the prince will come and save us from the evil reality that is life. And depending on the point of view you can actually find a good hardworking man who will fall in love with you and let's face it, treat you well. But until you realize that fairy tales are beautiful but in reality you will hit the days when you just want to scream "What have I done?!!!!!"
So how to prepare your child for life and tell them at the same time that if you wish something and believe your dreams will come true? Well that's a very good question and I get to be questioned a lot. I believe that all my dreams come true and whatever I dream will come true but I also believe that this will happen thanks to my actions and choices. So if ever confronted between ruining a fantasy world for your child to share reality that hurts think about it.... Because this precious little child might stop believing and then what? So what I say is that dreams will only come true if you WISH,ACT and then be PATIENT !
But then the balance between truth and lie telling your child that she won't fly if she jumps from her window to NEVERLAND because Tinkerbell forgot the "magic dust" and she won't but what am I going to say? " So I tell her TINKERBELL got so many requests for magic dust she decided to take large groups of people from now on and she works in airports ! " I catch myself saying this to my daughter and saying I have FIRE power that comes through my hand but NO..... I can not show it to you because it's DANGEROUS...
Yes it’s dangerous to my sanity at the moment.
Have a very dreamy week and CARPE DIEM
As previously published in https://unfocusedsecretbeautee.com/2014/07/20/a-letter-to-sophie-kinsella/ Where I explain the reason there is a need for changing the name of my blog I took control and stopped being a "LAZY DAZY" thanks to Blogging 101 that has taught me so much. Although I am late to the task I changed the name of my blog. What do you think?
That is one question that opens a broad scope of answers. I am a little bit of everything, I am a mixture of my parents and their parents and their grandparents and so on... I am the only daughter, only nice and only granddaughter, raised believing I am unique and wonderful, a precious Jewel. I hold in me the memories and the DNA of great amazing people and my task is to honour them the best way I can. It's a mighty task that sometimes drowns my being, my own wishes, my soul but in the great scales of life happiness and achievement are the winners. I feel sometimes a melancholy for the people I lost, for the past but I call it "Old people's MELANCHOLY" and move on. I feel too much sometimes and sometimes I am very superficial and vain. I am not Dalai Lama and am not Genghis Kan either. English is not my first language so excuse me the writings and spellings "faux pas" in my blog but the main thing is that I started this blog because I have so much to say and so little time. Time is always running and never gives you a break so I am here to leave my humble mark to posterity and learn through the best of my abilities to express this little bit of divine I am and we all are. My blog is a bit of everything and doesn't treat one specific subject because I am interested in too many different things. I write what I feel and how I feel this minute and in the Helter Skelter of my emotions and thoughts I am imprinting a little of me to you. Welcome to my world and please do not criticize me too much because I don't take it very well. I know that some critics are constructive but I hate them to breaking point really!
