The great danger…

As I finish my first year of Graduate studies here in the US, and fly back to Brazil for a warm Christmas, some sort of flashback of memories and people fill my head. I can honestly say it has been intense, and before I could realize, I`ve taken the first step, the first year, or something I`ve dreamed of for so long. The path definitely hasn`t been smooth, but I`ve learned that shame isn`t contained in attempting and failing…but on failing to attempt. I thank here my God, my family, and my friends, who gave me the strength when I alone couldn`t.

May the four years to come be as filled with challenges and blessings as this one was, because as Michelangelo once said:

The great danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.
