Watch “Girl Talk: Wanting to be…HER!” on YouTube

Hello there!

It’s been so long that I didn’t post something on my blog that I wonder if there are still people following me. πŸ™„

With work and home and kids and the daily struggles I barely have time to stop and do one of my favourites activities: writing.

I found this video, is made by one amazing person that I know that inspired me tonight. You see, after I had my kids, my body changed quite a bit. People tell me that I look good for my age and after having twins…but…they don’t see the imperfections that the pregnancy gave me because…they are covered by clothes. 🀐

So while I subscribed to gym for some months now I still have to find the courage to go, mostly because of my anxiety issues but also because I always “leave it for tomorrow”.

I find this video spoke very much to my imperfections and mostly to my image that I see in the mirror every time I have no clothes on. Maybe instead of seeing my body imperfections I should see that my body gave life to two healthy, beautiful boys. Maybe I should be less critical to my mirror image. And maybe you should too! ❀

Cress by Marissa Meyer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The third book in The Lunar Chronicles is full of so many adventures that it keeps you on the edge from the beginning to the end. It is amazing how an author can create this fantastic world and suck you in it like you are part of the story.

Cinder and Captain Thorne have to stay out of prison while preparing a plan to keep Earth safe from the evil Lunar Queen Levana. They have to stop the wedding between her and Prince Kai, but it is not that easy. They find new friends, Scarlet and Wolf and together they try to rescue the best hacker in the world, Cress, that is kept prisoner on a satellite, by the Lunar queen.

A Reason to Live by T.K. Chapin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t normally read Christian books, for no specific reason, but I must say that I might start to do so. This romantic story made me feel like there is much more to a romance book than the relationship between a man and a woman.

Jonathan and Kylie found each other when both needed guidance. Throughout the book the mention of God and Jesus made me feel closer to my faith. It made me think that God does work in mysterious ways, even though this is a fictional story, these things can actually happen in real life.

#bookreview … Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry (Contributor), Tobias Iaconis (Contributor)

Five Feet ApartPlot: Can you love someone you can never touch?

Stella Grant likes to be in controlβ€”even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions.

Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Stella – controlling but in need of love. She is scared of death but not for herself. She is scared for the loss that she will leave for her parents and all the other people that loved her.
Will – doesn’t care much about his life. He thinks that all people around him treat him like some kind of experiment, his mother included. He wants to enjoy the life that he has left but, he is trapped in the hospital by the people that care for him.

About life…πŸ§šβ€β™€οΈ

Hello there! 😌

It happens often lately that I’m contemplating life and what happens around me. I suppose it is normal to do so but I think that I probably do it to the extreme. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸŒž

So contemplating about life brings me to a simple conclusion: being alone is one of the best things that happened to me. I used to be afraid of loneliness, thinking that I needed people around me to feel loved and accepted and appreciated. But not anymore.

I don’t mind being around people. Genuine people. But I mind so much being around fakeness. People that spend their time with me because they have nothing else better to do..and that they forget everything else as soon as their life is ‘too busy’.

Personally, if I don’t get in touch with someone is because I don’t want any interaction at that moment. I don’t believe in the ‘we are too busy’ to communicate with each other.

So yeah….it just gets to me how some people use my presence to just fill their emptiness of the moment…πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Thanks for reading!
