I have learned...

I have learned to be humble when success cover me
I have learned to keep my feet on the ground even though I have my head on the moon.
I have learned to be grateful even in the worst of times
I have learned to love myself when others harmed me
I have learned to smile when tears are inside my soul
I have learned to say thank you even to the smallest gesture
I have learned to wipe my tears 
while struggling through difficult times
I have learned to be strong when all I want is to collapse
I have learned to keep going because tomorrow is a brand new day

Make your life a beautiful journey... every day 

Every day is a brand new day full of opportunities and new experiences. Don’t forget to try to live your life to the fullest and to incorporate into your life those tiny things that will make your life a beautiful journey...

Laugh out loud
Hug tight
Admire the beauty
Kiss slowly
Listen carefully
Treat others with kindness
Touch lightly
Hum to a melody
Speak wisely
Caress a face
Dance anytime

Flirt a little
Sing lustily
Walk sexy
Feel the emotions
Smile gracefully
Cry for happiness
Dream the impossible
Love profoundly

Sometimes the life ride is bumpy

Life pulls you, pushes you, twists you many times without warning. You continue your way regardless of the obstacles. You fall, peel your knees but you keep walking until the fatigue overcomes you.

You recover and take the road again. Sweat and fatigue are your allies. Perseverance joins them when you least expect it. It is then that you realize that on this rocky path that you had to walk and extenuated at times from it; the most important thing is to believe in yourself, trust that every time your life is twisted you will find a way to straighten it and that your knees will be all well again.

Take care, Tere

Blessed in the most unexpected way... my experience with an autistic student. 

I'm pretty sure that sometimes you have thought of the blessings you have had or have in your life. Perhaps you think that you haven't been blessed as much as you should be or you compare your blessings to others’ Then life makes sure to take you through unexpected paths. Paths that make you think...

I have lived a blessed life. I had a great childhood and teen's years. I have two sons that are good-hearted men. I come from a family where we share love and care for each other. I have amazing friends who have been there for me always. I share my life with a great man. I'm in good health, both physically and mentally. So, as you can see, I’m blessed.

Recently life decided to bless me in a different way. I started tutoring a kid with advanced autism. I've never worked with a student with autism before and when I was asked to do it, I won't lie; I was very nervous and stressful. But, I did it. I’ve been working with him for three weeks now and it has been a ride that I’ve been enjoying a lot.

He and I made a connection. I was afraid that didn’t happen but, it did and easily. He's happy to see me. I know it not only because he looked happy but because he said it with words. He works hard on his assignments and completes every task. He has shared with me his most beautiful smiles... and what an awesome feeling it is to see him smiling.
 Every Tuesday and Thursday this kid waits for me to be there and tutor him. Every Tuesday and Thursday I can't wait to be there for him.

His presence in my life has shown me another view of life, his view. A unique view where life is not that complicated and where you can be happy with the smallest things, with the smallest gesture of love.
Knowing and tutoring this kid... that is a true blessing!

Take care, Tere

The unnoticed love...

“What is love? - the little flower asked. “What if you have it in front of you and don’t notice it? - she continued. The moon looks at her and gently replied: “Love is an intriguing feeling, which sometimes can go unnoticed. But...when you feel a unique happiness, when you’re at ease, when you care for someone in a different way, when you wake up in the morning with a single thought about someone and go to sleep with the same one, when you smile and don’t know why, or simply when you don’t know what’s going on with all your feelings, that’s love too.” “So, don’t you worry, my friend" - the moon added - "If you’re going through and feel all of what I just mentioned, you have found love.”
