“Happiness for an orange is not to be an apricot”

Some would say it’s a dog’s life than to live what she has experienced.

But after reading this book, you will discover the true meaning of resilience .

From the Latin verb resilio “jump back”, hence “bounce resist” (shock, deformation). “Resilience is a psychological phenomenon that is for individuals affected by trauma, to take note of the traumatic event to not live in depression and rebuild. Resilience is made ​​possible through the early structuring of the personality, through constructive childhood experiences (before the confrontation with potentially traumatic events) and sometimes by reflection, or speech, more rarely by management of medical a therapy. “(Wikipedia)

To summarize very briefly, resilience is the ability to transform the horror into something beautiful. Simple you might say, this definition? No, when life is bent, you must learn to stand at any cost, and this is what an unusual heroine did. By sharing his life story in a moving book with a simple, light pen at a time. When his name is mentioned, some people on the sublime vibrations within us when we are very interested in dance and choreography. She’s an artist who makes dance words with incredible accuracy. This is an Amazon of another time, another world. Her name evokes purity. KHATAROS in Greek means pure, it is the essence of the name Catherina. I’m talking about Catherine Preljocaj.

In some cultures, the position of women is horrible. His, was no better. Born into a family of Albanian origin, she bathed and lived under the weight of parts of that culture.

Apart from the disease, social disorder, depending on the severity, can cause infertility own garden, country or even bring disaster. Harmony can not be found without the acknowledgment of sin and asking for forgiveness.
