  2. 2. Once there was a little girl called Aline who wondered what she would be one day...
  3. 3. Her grandparents loved her, but they didn’t want her to follow the artistic world. They said people who followed this path were too promiscuous and had a hard life, because they didn’t earn enough money to make ends meet...
  4. 4. Her father wanted her to be a public servant, a nurse, an engineer, a doctor maybe or anything that would guarantee her enough money to be independent and would also make her happy...

She had to face all these inner ghosts that haunted her before facing other obstacles ...
  15. 15. There were days when she thought about surrending and giving up everything, but then she remembered that God was her strenght and whenever she prayed to Him... Her faith on everything was renewed and only then she could find strenght to carry on
  16. 16. ...And so, by doing what made her happy, by doing what she needed to become independent and by renewing her strength through prayers, her heart found peace and she ended up doing both the things she loved and what she needed...

She found out she could achieve her dreams part time and also have a steady job to give her the financil support in times of need... But, most of all, she knew that her strehght could always be renewed through her prayers.
