📮 A letter to yourself in the past

What would you do if you could send a letter to you 10 years ago? It would be a huge opportunity to do everything different, wouldn’t it?

As I know myself very well, I would only advise in trying to calm my mind that at that moment was very restless, extremely worried and too afraid to do everything wrong. It would be something like this:

Dear Vie,

I know how much you don’t feel ready for life and motherhood.

I know you will go through complicated moments, unexpected abandon, demands of others disguised as good counsel and countless evil whispers. All of this will bring you disappointments and it is very natural that’s happens, because they were people who inspired you.

I know how lonely you feel right now, but hey! Look at your side!! There’s this little boy who sees you as the only person in his life! He feels very happy and safe when you’re around and considers you the most amazing person in the world! He finds you a wonderful mother and who has direct contact with God, for everything you ask of him — He accomplishes!

It’s okay to be worried about things, that’s a sign you’ve grown!
It’s okay if everyone thinks you do it all wrong, but if it’s right for you, the people’s opinion is null and void.
It’s okay if you don’t have too many people around, it’s better to be next to those who really love you than people who intoxicate your mind.

You don’t have to be afraid to be a mom, just be yourself — be the mom you always wanted and dreamed. Take a note: You will do very well.
Don’t be afraid to follow your second sight — no one knows what’s best for you.

And lastly, if necessary — make yourself clear! After all, both lives is your responsibility and it’s not up to anyone butt in!!

Calm down your heart, you own an incredible faith and Pheter is your family now!

With love, you @ 2019.

January, for me 👒

My relationship with January is based on those Mexican novels – “Love & Hatred”.

I love this month because:

  • It is the right time to set the annual goals and
  • I spend more time with my son, after all we’re on vacation!

It may not look like it, but it’s a busy month. It is when we organize school life, we buy all material, we define a routine with flexible schedules (because as you already know, I work at home, so our schedules are compatible) and we enjoy to rest in this period!!!

I know everything would be easier if I decided all things my way, but I don’t think it’s right. I like his participation in every step: draft and planning, because I know that he will accomplish the tasks without complaining.

I learned that I should just:
Teaching, Guiding and Never Interfering in decision making.


Speaking about resting, did you know that this is the first time (in years) that I’m on vacation? I usually have a little break and you know what? I was so used to the intense December routine that I kept waking up early in the early days.

I took the free time, posted and organized some things around here:

Now the boring part of this month is definitely summer! Here in Brazil, this season is more defined every year, a real madness!! For those who love and can stay at the beach or attend clubs, there is a delight, which is not our case: I am allergic to the sun and he is to the pool chlorine – yes! We are extremely allergic and no! We’re not spoiled. That’s why we’re restricted in our outdoor leisure options.


Good things this month:

  • We watched Wi-Fi Ralf, Glass and How to Train Your Dragon 3.
  • We buy manga Samurai X and a book about computers (for kids).
  • And of course you couldn’t miss it – ROBLOX! We play a lot!!

As you can see, we do almost everything together and usually have a photo on Instagram 😉

Next month: February 2019

Next month we will return to routine, work, school and course. I wish it to be a very productive month and full of new achievements for all of us!!
