Day 2 in Sao Paulo – Samba, Pagode e Capirinhas.

Probably you know  SP is a huge city with a total of 12 million people not counting with lots of cars and traffic. Despite the feeling of overwhelming emotions and excitement. We did not hesitate to enjoy the nice sites and the beautiful things the city has to offer. we know Sao Paulo can be a threat in the criminality levels but we did not want to think like that otherwise we would be 10 days fearful than happy enjoying the time of our lives. Unfortunately, we spent only 10 days, but if you have only 10 days is ok, you still can do a lot of things. I tell you that minute I landed I see how things are small and apparently out of shape. Sao Paulo is one of the biggest city with high up buildings all overs, apartments, and businesses are the deal in SP Capital.

Unfortunately, we spent only 10 days, but if you have only 10 days is ok, you still can do a lot of things. I can certainly tell you that the minute I landed I see how things are small and apparently out of shape. Sao Paulo is one of the biggest city with high up buildings all overs, apartments, and businesses are the deal in SP Capital, mixture of old and new buildings and very curve.

 

I just had a great first day and enjoyed a family gathering and plannings throughout the rest of the week with friends.

We stayed in 1 Hotel the first week at Jardins by Paulista Av.

Sundays Paulista Av. Closes down and people can do walks, biking and enjoy an afternoon taking pictures and see the demographic spirit of the city most visited street with high buildings.

We did narrow 10 days to do things Matt as a gringo never seen but a lot of the things that were on our list was not able o check it out because he had it zero interest.

If you don’t like museums and arts skip that crap go to other events and parts of town.

Now, if you love bars, restaurants the city can give you great choices.

As a truly Brazilian, I want to experience my roots and that is filling myself what is authentically challenge to be found in the US –  cheese bread, pizza rodizio, Brazilian style hot dogs which is the best one in the country, pastel and of course samba, Feijoada e caipirinhas. 

Here is the link of my Vlog which I do would love to have you sharing, subscribing and enjoying the life of discovering that I have been enjoying all this time.

Check this day 2 of fun, friends, and family.

 

 

See you next Blog/Vlog

Surprise Reunion 2017 -Sao Paulo – Brazil

I have been dreaming of this day, I have been making a plan before my father past away I planned to see them waiting for me at the airport but when he past away I could not see my father, I could attend the funeral it was horrifying because I was waiting for my legal documentations and in the process I did not have a humanitarian ability to leave for such cause, my heart was shutter in peace’s and if I moved back I would never be able to accomplish my dreams here in the US. I had to find strength, pray, and simply hold myself into the arms of faith and God. It was hard brutally hard, losing my father changed everything and certainly nothing is the same when a loved one leaves everything seems different.

I wait so long to apply for my residence in the US and finally last year one day after election my case approved and I received my green card days later, it was an emotional rollercoaster with ups and downs.

I always thought I would be able to visit my family right away but certainly it did not happen, even though I got my documents I need the money for it and that would take years to save up and see them.

I always want to celebrate my birthday with my twin sister which is hard to live apart. It was hard but we still love each other, after dad past away our relationship just got stronger. I need to celebrate our birthdays one day so was a dream but not a plan.

This year is been the best year of my life I have a good job, I met a great man in my life that God rewards me with it, such an angel, hard worker and intelligent man who dreams and fight for the best for us. We are dating for less than a year but he is the best boyfriend I had in my life, there is no complaint whatsoever. We have a good relationship and very nurturing.

He shines me with a laugh, smile, and love. He makes me the best women in the world with qualities and differences. He took care of me when I had to go thru a tough hip surgery and every time he sees me off mood he cheers me up.

Matt always want to travel together somewhere but is hard for me with the hip surgery and after post-op would be ideal but I mentioned that first of taking off to another country I want to see my family and take care my father assets and see spend time with them after done I know I can go anywhere else. The last trip I had in my life was in 2006 where I spend 1 week at Disney World Orlando by myself it was fun but for some people was weird. I had a bless.

Flight tickets are expensive and I don’t have credit cards and my credit score is ok but apparently I don’t get nothing approved I have a good full-time job for a social media company and pay the bills but don’t give me a silver life.

Anyways, Matt and I decided this September for my bday to surprise my twin sister and with her best friend help we came up with a good plan.

I can’t explain the amount anxiety and no expectations I was, my heart was pounding I was with my blood streaming all over my body.  Watch and see how emotional was the great encounter of my life

Here is the link to my youtube channel to see this great adventure and the greatest trip of my life.

I turned to 2017 with a grateful heart of being.

The Highligh moments in pictures and all the joy and emotion felt is unforgettable.

Stick around for more blogging about this great moment of my life.

When One Thing Leads to Another

 

Things in life happen in parts but we spend so many time waiting for each of our single dreams come to fruition,  we narrow down a list and create a vision and exercise of achieving one by one, but the reality of the events of living life brings so much in one place, after all, we have one life, one title as human, and one name and were a unique person that unfortunately can’t achieve all, the reason why we spend so much time persisting in life achievements and fulfilling our cups. We want thing the way we want instead of letting things happen.

When I decide to make a decision for myself, but without the guarantees where I want to be or go, during the process, I might come to fail in and is ok because we don’t know if failing is part of it.

I spend so much time trying to understand the process of pain, discordance, and native circle circuit, and to understand this in a better way imagine one single simple thing in your life don’t go according to the plan, through you off completely sideline and literally anything else goes sidelines too. You schedule a hair appointment, but your car break, and automatically all your day goes south, plans canceled, errands canceled, sometimes plans get adjusted.

Looking to the Disasters on TV – Disasters such as Harvey or Irma is a simple example that everything goes out of function, flood make you loose all, and even the ability for you to work, be on time, eat a meal because is no electricity, or drive to work because is no fuel, and no lights in the streets to make your safely drive,  literally all going to a surprising position that you never intend or chose to be. The name of such unbalanced is pure chaos.

That is what everyone and one thing leads to another.

One bad thing will lead to another bad thing. One good thing will lead to another good thing. and sometimes a bad thing might lead you to good things.

I came to acknowledge and observance of Harvey in Houston that compassion is what fixes it all.  Without compassion, nothing would be in the direction of recovery. Some have learned, some have gained, some have experience, and that changed a lot in us. Nothing would have moved forward without compassion and assistance of the people.

I am the reason I got this job at Facebook and if wasn’t for me accepting this job or getting hired, persisting even against the odds, I  would have never met my boyfriend, achieved few things in my life that I  had achieved on my own. I made decisions not looking forward success in the past because I didn’t know that one thing leads to another if you don’t see things leading to another in your life, stop and make better decisions, if life is a cycle of happenings, let’s make sure things lead one to another. Embrace even if the things are a challenge. I know my job leads me to the best of my surroundings but also brought few challenges and tough things. but is never tough when you see that is a chance for something new and better. When something is not right, doesn’t mean it does not fit for you is just because we need to pass that phase and accept, embrace and all will pass and better things will flourish.

Connection always is present with things, people, places, etc… Is true and is real.

That is the thought that makes me daily to not stress over things. I am desperately trying to find a job of my dreams, a career that will set me to growth but maybe where I am sitting now is going to lead me there, or to someone who will take me there, or to something that will lead me there. For that, I am staying where I am until something else leads me to do so.

My point is that behind the curtains of your life story, is something happening that involves your tomorrow, your future and your dreams.

It is a blessing! Slowly the revelations of this lead,  come to show you that if you were not meant for something you would be standing where you are now.

Blessings,

How to Comunicate without losing it?

 747ed0ce97966b5f3a5e2bdf121bb3d5--difficult-relationship-quotes-relationship-fighting-quotes
We communicate with peers or anyone around us daily basis and is essential to state clear question, to receive clear answers, but not always the word you place in question is same meaning in context, as instance compassion for you might be something totally different for me, while the dictionary might check one of our meanings or none. Curious to say, I spent years in coaching classes and coaching relationship communications back in 2007 when social media start to transfer voice to online versus face to face, while some have been placing silence in the real world others are not so worried about communication techniques or practicing placing a positive two-way road dialogue.
To carry a win win talking with your peers suggest this simple phrase when you do find the opportunity.

 What do you mean by_____________?
 
Then share your meanings and see what understand you can contribute to having positive and great communication in all scenarios of life. We tend to take this exercise as teaching us to accept one another as they believe and not make changes where is not such strong right or wrong.
Remember that we have two ears for one reason and one month. To listen more and speak less. As long as you will speak the essential only then you are doing great!
See you!

No Inspiration For A Long Time

Hi, Everyone!

 

 

 

It’s been such long time not keeping up with my blog. I am super away recovering from the surgery, still on my 11-week post op PT sessions and soon I am going to see my doctor for my 3rd post op appointment. The doctor will update me on everything. I am still working hard, and back at work, focus, my mind gets fried by Fridays I am completely exhausted, this past weekend I just felt like sleeping, it was crazy. All day clicking buttons is not an easy task, is more a challenge, than ever. I get home and I am literally ready to chill and sometimes to just catch on my sleep.
Forget about this boring work talking and let me share the greatest thing I want to share with you all.  I am so excited to announce my new goals for 2017 which I am studying hard in Digital Media Marketing and intend to scale my skills not to up high, but with the intent to get there. Work is stressful, and if your job is not please recommend me because I can sign a deal today.
I am spinning my brain into digital marketing topics, learning, absorbing. What is very cool about the process is that I just can absorb all but is hard to put all in writing, I am just taking baby steps, it similar to learning a language process. Takes time to read, speak, understand and master writing, right? The most exciting of learning everything is that I am very passionate for that, and without passion is tough to make work and succeed. I am very grateful for my current job that actually leads me to discover what I enjoy doing. I know things are not that easy but I think is very important to find one single glimpse of light somewhere, way hard to spot on and be thankful for… heck! if you think int he brighter side things could be way worst!

I am so excited with my new toy which is a brand new Mac computer where I can do all sorts of work on it and easy and fast, super excited and which makes me work more than I used to on a Chromebook – Super Happy! While I was working I was writing my first digital media tip ever, which is….. Blogging! I know I have been not blogging much, but my brain cannot share in two that quick!

I feel so in debt with my readers, OMG! I am taking so many classes that get a point my mind blows away and I don’t have time for a workout and meet my friends Eventually, all this will be balanced. Work and Study is a challenging task but sets you off in the future.

Blogging for me It was always something to share, now things seem so peaceful and so grateful… better whisper before things change.  Funny I am saying this, I just created a new blog just for my digital media marketing and hope I get great supporters and great people interested to learn, and to share.

Here is my new survey link from my first project I invite you to take few minutes and answer 4 questions, and won’t take more than 3 minutes and check the bonus question as well. I wish you all a Happy Success and let’s keep blogging.
