My wishes for 2018

I would like to wish everybody a wonderful 2018 with lots of health, love, happiness and work. Appreciate more, open doors, build bridges, judge less, love more, share your time and talents with others, listen. Respect differences and others. Sallow your pride when possible and burn bridges when needed. But first of all, LOVE YOURSELF and know that you are important. You may not recognize it but for some people YOU are the World!

For my part, I will visit the people that I love and that are important to me. December brought me something I thought it was lost forever (I will tell you more later in 2018). I will continue to travel and to invest in my beautiful children, they are my everything. They are beautiful, they challenge my patience, they are wonderful young adults and ready for life but they will always be my babies and I love them with all my heart. Sometimes we have our issues but they are my reason to live, my source of love and my pride. I want the best for them and I want them to be happy and proud of themselves.

Dankwoord

Ja ik klaag over sirenes, ja ik hou van stilte maar vandaag wil ik aan al de hulpdiensten bedanken omdat ze er voor ons zijn wanneer we ze nodig hebben. Ik wil bedanken aan de sympathieke politie agenten die hun werk met passie en toewijding doen, aan de dokters, verplegers, apothekers, vrijwilligers en administratief personeel die er altijd voor ons is. Aan de mensen die met een glimlach op straat lopen, aan de mensen die altijd klaar staan om andere te helpen. Bedankt om het verschil in ons leven te maken en ons alles gemakkelijker te maken. Ik wil ook aan de mensen bedanken die hun deur openstellen voor mensen die zich alleen voelen, die geen familie hebben of die gewoon met iemand willen praten.
Ik wens ieder van jullie een gelukkig 2018 en nogmaals bedankt voor jullie inzet.

Tradições e boa educação precisam-se

Quando eu era pequeno as pessoas visitavam-se ou telefonavam para dar os “parabéns” nos aniversários. Será que hoje em dia isso caiu em desuso e o que conta são mensagens no Facebook ou no Whatsapp? Todos se queixam da desumanização nos contactos pessoais mas ninguém quer dar ou está na disposição de dar a volta a isso. Um enorme agradecimento ao meu irmão e à minha filha mais velha pelos telefonemas, ao menos dois insistem em mantém a tradição.

Last day at work

Today is my last day at work at Amma Insurances in Brussels. It was a short-term mission and I enjoyed a lot the time I spent there. The job was very interesting, I learned a lot and the colleagues and managers were the best I ever had. Leaving Amma is like leaving a home where I was very happy and where I wanted to stay. Life doesn’t go as we plan but this experience was one of the best in my life. I will miss my time here and Amma is the proof that we can be at work and enjoy ourselves while doing our best to serve customers.
