I've's going to be Fabulous!

Well, it's almost 2007.
I wonder what the new year will bring me. I checked my horoscope and it's quite positive. The first sentences read:
This year you will get exactly what you've been made for. Love and friendship with an enormous intensity that makes it possible for you to experience an emotional rebirth.

The stars must be having great fun up there messing with my head. Sometimes I wish they could also mess with my memory a little. Just enough to make me forget about certain people and certain feelings that have ruled my being for way too long.
The past cannot be changed. The past cannot be erased nor forgotten. It's just there and we( I ) have to learn to accept it.
I think that it is always important to remember what you have and be grateful for it. And closing the chapter of 2006 and opening the chapter of 2007 makes me realize even more what I have to be thankful for.

Looking at the news, seeing all the horrible things that are going on: I am thankful that I still have my mother, father and brother with me. I am thankful that I have the opportunity to go to school and educate myself. I am thankful for the fact that I always have water, food and clothes. I am thankful that I am lucky enough to be in the position where I can realize how lucky I really am. I am thankful for the Lord and his blessings and all that he may bring me in 2007.

I wish all of you the best in the new year. May your hearts desires come true and may you give to, and think about, the less fortunate in this world

Feel good quotes / Ode to the Ballerina

There can be times when you're down or you just need a little bit of extra motivation to get through the day. A small sentence, a few words, it can make such a difference. I'll share a few of my favorite feel good quotes with you and hope that they make you feel good as well. Because life is more beautiful than you think, so enjoy it!

* Don't think of al the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.

* Move on. He's just a chapter in the past. Don't close the book, just turn the page.

* Life is too short for you to be anybody else, you are the best there is.

* Don't be afraid to follow your bliss and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.

* No matter how hard they try to break you, you have got to try harder to break free from them.
* The most important relationship you have in your life, is the relationship you have with yourself.

* Life is as Beautiful as you make it.

* Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.

* Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift...that's why we call it the present.

* Live today, because tomorrow is not promised.

A little bit of spirituality makes a big difference as well!

His eye is on the sparrow
Why should I feel discouraged

Why should the shadows come

Why should my heart feel lonely

And long for heaven and home

When Jesus is my portion

A constant friend is
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches over me
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me

I sing because I'm happy

I sing because I'm free
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me

He needed me on Valentines day

I cleaned up my room, made my bed, bought him a single white rose (something that I Love) and a card. Had a bottle of wine chilled. It was the 14th of February...Valentine's day.

I don't believe in big presents on that day, because that's not what it's about for me. I just want to lay in someone's arms, someone who thinks that he should spend that day with no other person than me. Because I am special to him and he is to me.

He came over, he was ill. His face was red, his lips were red and his body was burning. We went to the doctors and his fever was ridiculously high, he had an pneumonia. I talked to the doctor, listened to her advice. Called his mother. I kept him warm. Held his hand and took him home with me.

There is no other place where I would want to be than there with him. He needed me, he was ill and it was my job to take care of him on this Valentines day.
