                        Letter A

After some thinking on what to write with the letter A immediately I thought of one the most admired woman: AUDREY HEPBURN.

My mum has always been telling me how I reminded her to Audrey Hepburn. I wish I was something like her, but that's what my mum thinks. You know how mums are ;) It might be the way I put my hair sometimes, or the fact that I am also very thin and our shoulders look alike. I don't know. But my mum says that there is something that she cannot tell but I do remind her to Audrey Hepburn. But she says that is not just physical so it might be our determination.

It might be by the fact that for years my mum has been telling me this that I have always admire Audrey Hepburn. She has been an icon for me. She was a very talented woman. She looked fragile but with a great inner strength, and she had the ability of making the most of what she had. Her life wasn't always easy, by she grew into what she was thanks to that. She was a generous soul, and her charity work still endures today.
She worked for years for UNICEF, helping out as much as she could, even when she was very closed to her death.
He son Sean is the director of Audrey Hepburn Childhood Foundation, so her work still endures.
Who wouldn't want to be like her?

There are many quotes that she left and although I don't agree with  everything, you can see that on top of being a beautiful and successful woman she was a very intelligent and wise person.


Here are some of my favorite quotes:

"I heard a definition once: Happiness is health and a short memory! I wish I'd invented it, because it is very true."

"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."

"I've been lucky. Opportunities don't often come along. So, when they do, you have to grab them."

"Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible"

"The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides"

So you know, be happy be healthy and have a short memory!


Cuando comence a pensar en que podria escribir con la letra A inmediatamente pense en una de las mujeres mas admiradas: AUDREY HEPBURN.

Mi madre siempre me ha estado diciendo cuanto le recuerdo a Audrey Hepburn. Me encantaria ser aunque solo fuese un poco como ella, pero bueno, eso es lo que mi madre me dice. Ya sabeis como son las madres ;) Quizas sea por las veces que me he peinado como ella, o porque yo tambien soy muy delgada y tenemos los hombros muy parecidos. No lo se. Pero lo cierto es que mi madre dice que le recuerdo a ella.

Puede que sea porque por anhos mi madre ha estado diciendome esto que siempre he admirado a Audrey Hepburn. Ella ha sido un areferencia para mi. Ella era una mujer con muchisimos talentos. Tenia una aparencia fragil pero con una gran fuerza interior, y tenia la habilidad de sacar provecho de todo aquello que tenia. Su vida no fue siempre facil, pero ella se convirtio en lo que era gracias a eso. Tenia un corazon generoso, y su obra benefica aun perdura hoy dia.
Ella trabajo durante anhos para UNICEF, ayudando en todo lo que ella podia, incluso aun cuando le quedaba poco tiempo de vida debido a un cancer de colon.
Su hijo Sean es el director de la fundacion Audrey Hepburn Childhood, asi que su trabajo aun perdura.
Quien no querria parecerse a ella?

Hay muchas frases que ella ha dejado para la posteridad y aunque no estoy de acuerdo con todo lo que dejo dicho, podemos ver que ademas de ser una mujer hermosa y con exito era una mujer muy inteligente y bastante sabia.

Aqui os dejo algunas de mis frases favoritas:

"Una vez oi una definicion: La felicidad es tener salud y mala memoria! Ojala yo lo hubiese inventado, porque es una gran verdad"

"Yo creo en rosa. Creo que la risa es lo que mas calorias quema. Creo en besar, besar mucho. Creo en ser fuerte cuando parece que todo va mal. Creo que las chicas felices son las mas bonitas. Creo que manhana es otro dia y yo creo en los milagros"

"He tenido suerte. Las oportunidades no vienen frecuentemente, asi que cuando se presentan, no las puedes dejar pasar."

"Nada es imposible"

"La belleza de una mujer se debe ver en sus ojos, porque es la puerta a su corazon, y ese es el lugar donde el amor se encuentra"

Asi que ya sabeis, sed felices, estad sanos y tened mala memoria!
