Dear Wonderful Reader,

I present to you: dandelions. Some see a weed, others see a wish.



When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.” (1 Corinthians 13:11)


“The practice of kindness is the daily, friendly, homely caring form of love. It is both humble-a schoolboy bringing his teacher a bouquet of dandelions-and exalted-a fireman giving his life to save someone else’s. Kindness is love with hands and hearts and minds. It is both whimsical-causing our faces to crack into a smile-and deeply touching-causing our eyes to shimmer with tears. And its miraculous nature is such that the more acts of kindness we offer, the more of them we have to give, for acts of kindness are always drawn from the endless well of love.”

Dawna Markova


“To have an inner life, to think, to juggle and leap, to become a tightrope walker in the world of ideas. To attack, to riposte, to refute, what a contest, what acclaim. To understand. The most generous word of all. Memory. To retain, a geyser of felicity. Intelligence. The agonizing poverty of my mind. Words and ideas flitting in and out like butterflies. My brain a dandelion seed blown in the wind.”

Violette Leduc


“A man who took great pride in his lawn found himself with a large crop of dandelions. He tried every method he knew to get rid of them. Still they plagued him. Finally he wrote the department of agriculture. He enumerated all the things he had tried and closed his letter with the question: “What shall I do now?” In due course the reply came: “We suggest you learn to love them.”

Anthony de Mello


“I was as unburdened as a piece of dandelion fluff, and he was the wind that stirred me about the world.”

Sarah J. Mass

“Bliss it was in that dawn to be alive. But to be young was very heaven.” -William Wordsworth

I’m Back plus New Blog Schedule

Dear Wonderful Reader,


Thank you so much for bearing with me here, I know I haven’t been consistent in my posts, yet I received many follows and support from you. Nonetheless, rest assured that I take my blog and you very seriously because this isn’t a hobby for me anymore, but its a dream.

Its my dream to become a successful blogger.

I have been busy all last week with my new blog This Is The Day. The idea of this blog was actually born here on 4ever21Christina; I used to post quotes and pair them up with pictures that represents them, and it was a great success. So, I decided to create This Is The Day because I wanted to narrow the focus of 4ever21Christina, without having to let go of the inspirational quotes and pictures. Thus far I have been blessed with This Is The Day as it has been a great success.  Make sure to check it out, if you haven’t already. Also I have been updating my other blog I Heart Vocabulary  (yup, a third blog!) and it looks super fantastic and hipster-ish now; check that out as well.

Last but not least, I have been doing a lot of thinking and planning for my lovely blog 4ever21Christina and I can’t wait to (re)start this journey with you.  4ever21Christina is for the woman (and man) who are interested in learning about art, music, film, culture, fashion, beauty, spirituality etc. In other words, I am a woman who enjoys learning and being well-rounded about many subjects that interests me and I want you to embark  on this voyage with me.

So in spirit of all these changes, I made a weekly schedule and it goes as follows:

Musical Monday: Discover and rediscover new or old albums and artists from all sorts of genres and eras together.

Tasty Tuesday: Learn how to cook simply, deliciously, and healthy.

Wonderful Wednesday: Enhance your natural beauty and the beauty of your surroundings.

Thoughtful Thursday: Think and discuss more serious ideas about life, politics, books etc.

Fabulous Friday: Rock the latest fashion trends, and all that jazz.

Silvery Saturday: AKA Silver Screen Saturday; features a movie every week.

Sophisticated Sunday: All about art, baby!
