Today I cried, today I laughed; today the wind caressed my face and shook my hair; today, the sun rays lightened my skin giving it warmth.
Today I gave a hug, today I got mad and shouted; Today I jumped, I sat, I woke up; Today I looked at the sky and became sad, and became glad.
Today I said a lie and a truth that offended; today I was loved and I hated, I loved and was hated; today I remembered and maybe was remembered.
Today, I wanted to run away and hid; today I saw and was seen; today I said something that someone will never forget.
Today I saw the night fall and someone smiled for something I said; today I fed some angers and forgot a promise.
Today I breathed and suffered, I sighed 27 years and again I cried and laughed; Today, I realized I´m alive.
Today I discovered that to live there is no need of anything else but a moment.
Today I captured every moment; today I had life and for the first time I was not afraid, not even from death.

First and foremost, I thank the moment you are taking to read the words that with all my being I gave life to; for you, readers, with a lot of dedication.
In this work, I make my best effort to narrate the most important chain of events of what has been my life so far, or at least what I can remember; In the same way, I consider this story, an emotional and passionate journey from my mother´s womb to the present, sailing through the seas of my memories and selecting as they present themselves, these crucial moments and beyond, in territories of peace and war; my adventures, my dreams, my clumsiness, my bliss, and misfortunes.
And why do I write about these incidents of my life? Because I consider that we all have a purpose for our lives, and after years of experience, sometimes very unusual, that made me think nothing made any sense, now I see myself convinced that the story of my life can serve as consolation to at least one, at the same time trying in a humble matter to give the reader some advice that might help for personal growth, and why not, to provide a little fun, entertainment and inspiration, things that do us well from now and then.
In this way, without more preambles, I present to you something more than a simple story: My life.
