Happy Mindset Monday!
Today’s message is about love and gratitude with some life lessons that will help you on your journey. 💥
Looking at the included picture, there are no words to truly describe my deep love and gratitude for these amazing ladies.
The snap is of my mother-in-law Cristina and my dear friend Mara.
They are my 2 most notable Brazilian Portuguese teachers over the last 12 years.🙌
The picture was taken at Mara’s house in Laguna Beach 2 weeks ago, and was the first time they met.
While “strangers” their commonalities and influence in my life cannot be understated.
Both were born years before me in the same decade in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 🇧🇷
They grew up within miles of each other, in a very different place and in a very foreign land.
But similarly, they both provided me with a deep foundation for my 2nd language and deep knowledge into Brazilian culture.
And most importantly throughout my journey of learning from them both, they have become my closest friends.
They have taught me way more than a second language. They taught me about culture, perspective, and about life.
Consequently, they are “life teachers” and have become family in the process.
My call to action for you from the lessons I learned from them over the last decade..
- Do hard things that challenge you.
- Routinely put yourself in incredibly uncomfortable situations as this forces growth.
- Seek monitors that have done what you want to do and gain proximity.
- Take a deep interest in other people, cultures and backgrounds from a learning perspective.
By following this advice, my life was forever changed for the better.
And I want the same for you.
Make it a great week!
