Be Extraordinary

There are people living. Then, there are people just living and people working to be the best version of themselves. Everyday. These are the ones that become extraordinary. These are the ones that are able to change the world or leave their footprint.

I have the great joy and pleasure of having a sister-by-choice that works on herself, so hard, that everyday she becomes a better version of herself than the one she was the day before. For us, the ones close to these people, this self-improvement is inspiring. And someday, we found ourselves working on the best version of ourselves. And man! It feels good!

My sister-by-choice is committed to become better and better. She pursues her dreams. She works hard on herself. She is becoming an extraordinary person. And because she is inspiring, her hard work shall be shared, so it can inspire more people to pursue their dreams. Therefore, I leave you with a video of her, performing one of the things she dreamed about and is becoming really good at.

Hope you get inspired!

 

Stand up. Take the lead.

Nunca te escondas no fundo da sala. As oportunidades chegam aos corajosos que se dispõem a correr o risco de estar na frente. Esses são os que irão sempre assumir a liderança! Não queres ser líder? Do teu trabalho, da tua vida, do teu futuro? Se estás no fundo, imagina quanto tempo precisas para agarrares a oportunidade! Quando lá chegas, já alguém destemido tirou essa oportunidade de ti.

Não procures conforto. Não te sentes na última fila da tua vida. Não te acostumes.


Never hide in the back of the room. The opportunities come to the ones that are brave enough and willing to risk to be in the front. Those are the ones who will always take the lead! Don’t you want to be a leader? On your job, of your life, of your future? If you are in the back, image how much time would it take for you to get the chance! By the time you get there, someone fearless already took that opportunity away from you.

Don’t go for comfort. Don’t sit on the last row of your life. Do not settle.

Sê destemido na busca do que incendeia a tua alma.

Milk and Honey

Li recentemente um livro que tem tanto de delicioso quanto de perturbador. Ficamos num limbo de sensações que nos leva à exaustão emocional. “Milk and Honey” ou, em português do Brasil, “Outros jeitos de usar a boca“. Infelizmente ainda não existe tradução para português de Portugal.

Escrito em primeira mão, fala-nos da história de uma menina que se fez mulher marcada por um passado doloroso e leva-nos consigo na sua viagem até ao momento de aceitação de si própria. É desconcertante. Por ser brutalmente genuíno.
