“Brrrrr – I can’t stand this weather anymore! How can we live in North Dakota?! Brutal winters, no high mountains to ski or oceans to swim. What is still keeping you here?”
That’s what Suzan told me as we met for the first time, at a coffee shop.
I never forgot the year 1987. I was a teenage girl living in my home country, Brazil. My favorite thing to do was go over to my best friend’s house, sit on her bedroom floor around a vinyl record player, and listen to our favorite bands.
Christmas can be a very stressful time, especially if you, like me, are part of the prayer group: “God, please, help me to finish my last minute to-do list and I promise that next year I will be a good girl and start working on my Christmas list in March!”
Success doesn't come out of thin air. You have to work hard, be motivated and always be reaching toward your dream. There will be bumps along the way, but you need to believe in yourself and your faith to do well and become a better person.
This month my husband and I celebrated our anniversary. We usually use this day as an opportunity to remember the most treasured moments of our relationship. We talk about what has helped us grow, we laugh about the moments that made us cry, and we cry remembering moments that made us laugh.
“Mom … MOM … He is calling me a liar!”
My 6-year-old daughter was screaming as her Brazilian cousin chased her around the house, football ball in hand, calling out in Portuguese, “Mentirosa! Mentirosa!”
I was painfully shy as a child and was afraid to speak up, especially in the classroom. I developed this fear, in part, because a little boy in my class made fun of my voice. I had a deep voice for a 6-year-old girl and grew up believing that my voice was ugly.
Where do you get your sense of self-worth? From success at work? Having a “perfect” body? From others’ recognition? It’s hard for me to admit that many times, I got my self-worth from what I did, and not from who I was.
I’m a pragmatist, so research to me is useless unless I’ve lived it. So, last month I decided to train my brain to be more positive by applying a study conducted by psychologist Shawn Achor, who spent more than a decade researching at Harvard University.
This year I am celebrating New Year’s in Brazil with my family and friends. In my culture, there’s a tradition surrounding the holiday. Most Brazilians, including myself, dress in all white on New Year’s Eve
in order to bring good luck and peace for the year that will follow.
