February 13, 2012 in Family & Living, Motivational, Uncategorized

In this life stages are accomplished, the people who appear in our lives come to teach us, guide us, to grow with us, to remind us that there are things that need to be healed and play a role in some stage of our lives. You need to know when to close a cycle, be strong and not get into the vicious cycles lengthen more than necessary, to extend facing situations for fear of them, this makes you lose the joy and sense of the other stages you have to live your life.

most of us feed our ego with all these “external success” and we often ask ourselves… how come I have so many things I wanted? Finally I bought the house of my dreams, I married the person I wanted, I was promoted at work, etc, etc, etc. And I’m not happy!

Some People are Like Garbage Trucks / Algunas Personas son Como Camiones de Basura

October 19, 2011 in Family & Living, Motivational
