The power of music.

Hello everybody,
Do you believe in the power of music? Then you shouldn't miss this video.
Adrián Martín is a boy from Vélez-Málaga, Spain. He is only 9 years old, he loves singing and his favourite type of music is flamenco (I must say that I love that music).

Flamenco is comprised of three parts: the song, the dance and the guitar. Moreover, you must add passion, feelings and rythm. In other words, "It's a hard nut to crack", as Paco de Lucía said.

He won the TV talent show "Mamá, quiero ser artista" and I am really excited after listening to him.
He sings with his sister a beautiful song by Rosario Flores called ¡Qué bonito!

Congratulations, Adrian and family. Your voice and your feeling are incomparable.


Adrián is a clear example of improvement.
He has demonstrated that he has got these characteristics well developed:
- Sociability: Form healthy relationships.                          
Insightfulness: Understand people and situations.
- Optimism: View self and the future positively.                            
- Competence: Are "good" at something, and are aware of own skills.
- Flexibility: Accept that change is a part of living.                            
- Perseverance: Continue despite difficulty, doesn't give up.
- Self- confidence: Move toward goals. Bases decisions/choices on own instincts and confidence in own abilities.                 
- Perspective: Try to see even difficult situations in perspective. Views crises as challenges to be faced, rather than insurmountable obstacles.
- Self control: Manage strong feelings and impulses.
This last information has ben taken from the article Developing resiliency in children in the face of adversity.

Gabriela Andersen won her personal battle.

The 1984 women’s Olympic marathon was historic because it was the first time the event was included at the Games.
Up to that point 1,500 metres  was considered the upper limit of ladylike Olympic competition.
The race was won by Joan Benoit, in a remarkable time of 2:24:52. However, there was a notorious fact for the 70,000-plus spectators who cheered on the marathon runner Gabriela Andersen-Schiess during the  400 metres of agony she had to walk.
She was an incredible 37th, in a time of two hours, 48 minutes and 42 seconds.
"I guess I just kept walking by instinct," she said. "It was a little bit of willpower or something. Your mind tries to dominate over your tired body. Your body may be screaming, 'No!', but your mind says, 'Well, yes, but it's so close.'"

Small acts of kindness can change the world.

Hello everybody,
This video is very touching because one simple act can change a lot of things.
Small changes begin with understanding our emotions and the people who are around us.
Can we change our habits and roles? I think it's possible.

 

Maya Angelou said, " I have learnt that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel".
Remember that World Kindness day is celebrated on 13 November.
Do you know Kindness Day UK?
