Dont want to say too much or go too deep into personal thoughts.

Guess this is a post just to throw something out there. There is a time and place for everything and sometimes we need to stop and realize what it is that we are and who it is we are.

What has made us? And most importantly we need to realize sometimes that we are kinda special.

Everyone has something particular and unique.

So here it goes….

English is my main language for work.  Professionally that is my main language.  It is a language I speak fluently and is spoken worldwide…  Even though sometimes I need to speak slower or less complicated and more basic to get around in some countries.. It is still my main language…  As I work for 3 to 4 weeks on without a break..  You can easily see how English dominates my day.

E quando chego ao final do dia para descansar,  troco para o Português. Minha lingua materna (mais ou menos). Este e o idioma com que cresci.  De minha patria.  O idioma dos meus mais proximos e queridos.  O idioma que tanto orgulho tenho.  Que sempre mantive mesmo quando em pequeno emigrei. Domino mesmo sem ter estudado.  Domino por ter orgulho na lingua lusa.

En dan wordt het grappig.  Want als ik terug kijk dan kan ik de Nederlandse taal niet vergeten.  Dit is mijn taal.  Dit is mijn land.  Nederlans heeft me groot gemaakt.  Ik kan wel zeggen dat Engels mijn beroeps taal is maar zonder Nederlands had ik niet eens een beroep gehad.  Hier ben ik opgegroeid.  Dit ben ik.  Het zal altijd een deel van mijn leven zijn.

So you see… I am sure there are more people out there speaking more languages,  it is important not to underestimate ourselves.

Temos que nos dar valor a nos próprios pois existe sempre algo particular e unico em nos.

En we moeten nooit vergeten wie we zijn en waar we vandaan komen. Leef het leven met al je kracht en geef jezelf waarde.

As vezes estou a falar no skype com minha filha e a escrever em Inglês num email de trabalho.

And sometimes I am at work speaking English and texting in Portuguese.

En als je het echt moeilijk wilt hebben dan kan ik ook zeggen dat ik soms in de tussentijd ook in het Nederlands aan het texten ben met ouwe vrienden, terwijl ik Engels praat and Portugees schrijf.

Grappig hoe kleine dingen die blijkbaar geen waarde hebben…  Are quite interesting to know an important to acknowledge…  Porque quando paramos para nos dar valor a nós, vivemos finalmente bem…
