I’m sure you will recognize this beautiful melody from the reality show “The contender”. I love the two versions!
Well, yes, I do like boxing; however, my post is not related to physical fighting but to my little everyday struggling to be someone better, to accept myself just the way I am, to keep on going no matter what…..NO MATTER WHAT.
I’ve fallen so many times into the darkness that I have a tendency to ignore my ability to crawl back to the brightness. However, the truth is that I do survive after all. Once and again I come back to claim for my most treasured belongings, my life, my dreams, my hopes, my integrity, my smiles.
Once and again I fill myself with a renewed energy that comes from many people around me who never hesitate on giving me a hand, a word, a hug……a view to a new beginning.
Why does this melody brings so many thoughts to me? I see myself winning; getting through bad times, holding tightly the best trophy someone may deserve….another chance to be happy.
The music? Just the background sound of my life 🙂
Enjoy with me

Here I too see the girl behind the smile. Some suffering shows the humanity in us. It shows the fear, but reveals the courage in us too. What would one be without the other?
Good to see you here Mariana. You are right, What would one be without the other? I prefer more smiles, though he he. Take care xoxoxox
Analía, las dos versiones son hermosas, aunque a mi me gusta un poco mas la primera..
Besitos Mine 🙂 a mi tambien me gusta mas. Cuidate mucho
I like to see you like that. You seem full of energy.
I noticed you changed your profile picture and that it now says… “40”. I’m 40 since last June and I’m also feeling just like you said: “a grown up child”.

Vine a visitarte y me voy con alegria y tristeza al mismo tiempo. Alegria por visitar a un amigo y tristeza de ver tantas caritas perdidas. Lo de Flavia es tan doloroso. Que podriamos hacer? Cual sería el mejor camino para no sentirnos tan inútiles y ver las cosas de lejos? Ojalá encotrara la respuesta.
Cuidate mucho corazon. Volveré prontito

Hello Dear 🙂
A really great new design – I love blue & you have a blue blog! So, you have blue eyes? Must be like my ex-gf from Bolivia 🙂
Her brother-in-law is from Mendosa (sp?) in Argentina – so sort of neighbors.
Happy B-Day, I didn’t know, sorry I missed it.
You got Carlos AND Stewart to come away from their work – now I know that you are a special person!
Awwwww nikon, sweety, thank you!!(and I also brought you back LOL, wow I’m so good!!) hugs and kisses
darling, you made such a beautiful new background…that’s great…and thanks for your visit and nice words…many kisses from the inside of the computer !!!
Thank YOU mousie for being my friend 🙂
A strong and brave girl you are. Everyone, at one time or another, has rough spots in their lives. Those not familiar with it find it more difficult to deal with. Others are quite familiar with the black hole that consumes days of their lives.
There is no ‘one recipes’ to heal as we are all different, but knowing how to get out of the black hole and indeed having the strength and desire to do so is what makes us winners in claiming our lives back.
Good luck to you and a hug for the holidays.
Welcome Isadora to my house. Thank you for your comment. Happy Holidays to you too 🙂
I’ve got another tiny window of opportunity to creep out from my work on this Super-Sunday.
I’ve seen this title of yours 3 times and each time, I immediatelythought not of the Contender, but one of my Jackson Browne favourites, “The PREtender”.
“Are you there? Say a prayer for the pretender, who started out so young and strong, only to surrender.”
No surrender, never. They will never EVER take me alive!!!!!!!!!
I’ll say a prayer for the pretender who pretends to pretend 🙂 but he’s one of the most honest men I’ve ever met. They will never EVER take me alive either!!!!!!!!!xoxoxoxoxoxox
Feel much better for that. Have a MMMMWAH (a big kiss!)Computer clouds, big black ones, are almost overhead. I hope I am not going to lose anything, at least.
And I have to tell you one of our famous serendipities is here in this box RIGHT NOW! Just seen it. The word verification is asking me to write the letters bejocx. This is amazingly close to the Portuguese word “beijocas”. you know what that means, don’t you?
Big Kisses! Ain’t that something?
Im enjoying Analia and feeling your energy 🙂 Love the new background, this post is straight from the heart..beautiful xxx and big hugs too Auds
Nice intropective post here Analía. I hope one day to have the courage to do the same.
You will nietzschean 🙂
Wow! that nick is difficult to write ha ha
