Topics: Our Future

Closing Statement from Débora Correia

I still thinking that it´s to difficult to be good enough, but now i see that the most important it is not what we gonna do in our future but what we will feel and change with it. Somethings we can control, others no, so we have to take it easy because one day we will show how good we are.
Thanks to everybody that so friendly answers to me and hopes that everything get lighter in the future.

P.S: I want to be a doctor , yes, and here in Portugal it's very very difficult and i'm just in the highschool...

  • Feb 3 2013: I'd say, try to be useful or perform a use. Often it is not what you do but how you do it.

    Relax and follow intuitions and opportunities. We are not in charge as to what happens to us so we do not control the details of our future. So do not worry about the details.

    We are only in this life for one single reason. We are here not for the sake of getting rich or famous. The one reason we are here is to develop and grow the best character we can. The rest is just details.

    Deborah I wish you a happy and a long life on this wonderful planet!!
