O maior conquistador não é aquele que conquista grandes coisas, mas sim o que conquista as pequenas e as torna grandes!


Here's a dozen of my favorite things never to apologize for:


1) Never apologize for acting on your instincts.
2) Never apologize for being passionate.
3) Never apologize for being smart.
4) Never apologize for demanding respect.
5) Never apologize for saying no.
6) Never apologize for not embracing someone else's agenda.
7) Never apologize for disagreeing.
8) Never apologize for your faith.
9) Never apologize for your own sense of creativity.
10) Never apologize for ordering dessert.
11) Never apologize for being funny.
12) Never apologize for living your truth.

Every one of us casts a shadow.

There hangs about us, a sort of a strange, indefinable something, which we call personal influence--that has its effect on every other life on which it falls. It goes with us wherever we go. It is not something we can have when we want to have it--and then lay aside when we will, as we lay aside a garment. It is something that always pours out from our lives . . . as light from a lamp, as heat from flame, as perfume from a flower.

The ministry of personal influence is something very wonderful. Without being conscious of it, we are always impressing others by this strange power that exudes from us. Others watch us--and their thinking and actions are modified by our influence."

"Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity." Ephesians 5:15-16

INSPIRING WORDS.

"I WOKE UP EARLY TODAY, EXCITED OVER ALL I GET TO DO BEFORE THE CLOCK STRIKES MIDNIGHT. I HAVE RESPONSIBILITIES TO FULFILL TODAY. I AM IMPORTANT.MY JOB IS TO CHOOSE WHAT KIND OF DAY I AM GOING TO HAVE.

TODAY I CAN COMPLAIN BECAUSE THE WEATHER IS RAINY OR I CAN BE THANKFUL THAT THE GRASS IS GETTING WATERED FOR FREE.

TODAY I CAN FEEL SAD THAT I DON'T HAVE MORE MONEY OR I CAN BE GLAD THAT MY FINANCES ENCOURAGE ME TO PLAN MY PURCHASES WISELY AND GUIDE ME AWAY FROM WASTE.

TODAY I CAN GRUMBLE ABOUT MY HEALTH OR I CAN REJOICE THAT I AM ALIVE.

TODAY I CAN LAMENT OVER ALL THAT MY PARENTS DIDN'T GIVE ME WHEN I WAS GROWING UP OR I CAN FEEL GRATEFUL THAT THEY ALLOWED ME TO BE BORN.

TODAY I CAN CRY BECAUSE ROSES HAVE THORNS OR I CAN CELEBRATE THAT THORNS HAVE ROSES.

TODAY I CAN MOURN MY LACK OF FRIENDS OR I CAN EXCITEDLY EMBARK UPON A QUEST TO DISCOVER NEW RELATIONSHIPS.

TODAY I CAN WHINE BECAUSE I HAVE TO GO TO WORK OR I CAN SHOUT FOR JOY BECAUSE I HAVE A JOB TO DO.

TODAY I CAN COMPLAIN BECAUSE I HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOL OR EAGERLY OPEN MY MIND AND FILL IT WITH RICH NEW TIDBITS OF KNOWLEDGE.

TODAY I CAN MURMUR DEJECTEDLY BECAUSE I HAVE TO DO HOUSEWORK OR I CAN FEEL HONORED BECAUSE THE LORD HAS PROVIDED SHELTER FOR MY MIND, BODY AND SOUL.

TODAY STRETCHES AHEAD OF ME, WAITING TO BE SHAPED. AND HERE I AM, THE SCULPTOR WHO GETS TO DO THE SHAPING.

WHAT TODAY WILL BE LIKE IS UP TO ME. I GET TO CHOOSE WHAT KIND OF DAY I WILL HAVE!" 

HAVE A GREAT DAY,
AUTHOR UNKNOWN

My ceramic teasets that I painted.


 I PAINTED these teasets AT A CERAMIC CAFÉ. I BOUGHT  PLAIN WHITE BISQUE  TEASETs, I PAINTED USING CERAMIC UNDER-GLAZE, THEY FIRE IT FOR YOU AND AFTER 2-4 DAYS I WENT AND COLLECT IT. GOING TO A CERAMIC CAFÉ IS SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN DO WITH A FRIEND, ITS FUN, CREATIVE AND INDIVIDUAL EXPRESSION IS ENCOURAGED.
