    As I read your blog and this post, I’m taking my breakfast while a read a book, So for now I just thankful for:

    – Coffee Smell at the morning;

    – All the good books in the world (and the bads, so I can enjoy the goods)

    – Internet (this one I still have my doubts)

    Take Care,


    PS: Just got to see here bellow your ebook “How to make room for what matters most” I’m having hard times to decide what comes in or not at my room. I’ll for sure read this book!
