HOLA A TODOS. EL OTRO DÍA VI A UN CHICO COMO TANTOS OTROS PIDIENDO EN LA CALLE PERO NO PEDÍA PLATA SINO UN PLATO DE COMIDA. YO IBA PENSANDO EN OTRAS COSAS Y ESTE PIBE ME PUSO LOS PIES SOBRE LA TIERRA. ME DI CUENTA QUE IMPORTANTE SON LAS NECESIDADES BÁSICAS. LAS  DEMÁS COSAS SON SIMPLEMENTE ADORNOS.
CUIDENSE,REFLEXIONEN, ALEGRENSE CON LO QUE TIENEN Y DISFRUTENLO.
QUE EL AMOR LLENE SUS CORAZONES, QUE LA PASION SE MANTENGA CADA DÍA, SONRIAN, ALÉJENSE DE LAS PERSONAS NEGATIVAS Y QUE SE QUEJAN TODO EL DÍA, BUSQUEN PAZ EN SU ALMA Y DISFRUTEN QUIENES SON, VALÓRENSE, AMENSE Y QUE DIOS LOS BENDIGA. HASTA LA PRÓXIMA. TODO MI AMOOOOOOOOOORRRRRR PARA USTEDES  EDU

MESSAGE FROM EDUARDO –

HOLA A TODOS. MARZO… NO PODEMOS NEGARLO YAAAAAA EMPEZOOOOOOO EL AÑO!!!  REGALO DEL CIELO QUE SEGUIMOS VIVOS.
EL MUNDO VIVE UN GRAN MOMENTO DE CRISIS HABRIA QUE CONSEGUIRLE UN PSICOLOGO ECOLOGICO PARA QUE SE RELAJE. TIEMBLA, SE SACUDE, SE INCOMODA.
LOS SERES HUMANOS NECESITAMOS ENCONTRAR UN BALANCE CON LA NATURALEZA Y HAY QUE COMENZAR POR CASA; ES DECIR, PRIMERO ARMONIZAR NUESTRA MENTE, ESPIRITU Y CUERPO. ASI NOS VAMOS A SENTIR MEJOR Y SI ESTAMOS BIEN MANIFESTAMOS AL MUNDO Y A LOS DEMAS BIENESTAR.
RECUERDEN SI BRINDAN AMOR RECIBIRAN AMOR. NO SE OLVIDEN SE SONREIR, ABRAZAR Y BESAR Y  DE DECIRLES A QUIENES AMAN TE QUIERO. ELLOS SABEN PERO MUCHAS VECES NECESITAN ESCUCHARLO.
COMO SIEMPRE DISFRUTEN LA VIDA PORQUE UNO NUNCA SABE. AH! Y RECUERDEN LIFE IS GOOD!!! HASTA LA PROXIMA HERMOSOS. EDUARDO

many blessings to all,
as always, como siempre   Kikki
