You are just like your Mother!

Someone said that to me as an insult and I could not be more proud!

It’s all about you doing what the other person that accuses you wants. If you argue or if you defend your ideas, that’s a bad attitude! You can’t have your opinions. Your vision is always wrong because they don’t want your different ideas. They live in a utopia where they are always right, and you have to be wrong. If you fight against it, you are just like your mother! A bad woman that speaks back and stays true to herself! I’m glad to be as bad as my mother!

Let’s be badass then. I don’t mind. Black is a great color. Let’s be the black sheep!

I am the luckiest person in the world! I have amazing parents that made me what I am today. My father, one day, I will talk about him. But this is all about my mother — again. I can’t say times enough. She is my inspiration to stay and fight in this life. The strength that I have is partial her fault. And, mother, we do have a tongue that not everyone likes. And I can say all the marvelous knowledge that you have passed into me.

You can have a family, but nothing compares to the ones that love and care for you. It is not only about flesh and bone.

Truth. Be truthful even if it hurts you.

The truth was always something that my mother wanted us to comply with. How can you get anything in life if you were lying? If you live in a lie, you end believing it. We all have our path, we can make our journey sweet even when those steps are hard to take. But never forget the truth will always surface. Be truthful to yourself and nothing can touch your feet.

Love conquers all.

Love is the strength that moves our souls. Even if you’ve never experienced it. You can learn how to revive that flame that is dormant. Selfless, fullest, deepest love. The real one leaves no stones unturned. Love is the sun that can heat our lives. Her love sure is a perfect example. Her love for her daughters is so deep that nothing in life can compare to it. Of course, her love for my father was deep too. Love does not have limits. You can love it. Don’t forget to love yourself, never!

A tooth for a tooth
