SANDRA BISSELL

My name is Sandra Bissell.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to live as an expatriate for more than 2 decades.

Some of my passions are people, my family, good conversations, traveling, ethnic food, dancing and Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian-Martial-Art-Dance.

Originally from the countryside of São Paulo state, in Brazil, I have enjoyed life in Kanagawa and Aichi prefectures, in Japan, Boston and San Diego cities, in the United States, São Paulo, Brazil, as an expatriate in my own country, Zurich – Switzerland and most recently Stamford, Connecticut, back to the United States.

As you may guess, I feel the most comfortable within the international community.

    • Living the unplanned life and allowing my intuition and desire to take the driver seat for a change, I’m  flying to Portugal 🇵🇹 to participate in a Capoeira Angola event by my dear Mestre Joāo Grande. •
•

It’s my very first time visiting this country, where some of my family roots also branched from. •
•
Interestedly, I dreamt with my beloved grand-mother,  Maria Eponina Mattos Mendes, the one with Portuguese roots, and one of
the most influential women in my life. •
•

I guess that The Universe is talking to me. ❤️
———————
Temporariamente vivendo uma vida não planejada e permitindo que  a minha intuição e desejos me guiem decidi ir para Portugal e participar num evento de Capoeira Angola do meu querido Mestre Joāo Grande.
•
•
É a minha primeira vez visitando este país, de onde raízes da minha família também se ramificaram.
•
•
O interessante é que nesta noite sonhei com a minha querida avó, Maria Eponina Mattos Mendes, a minha raiz portuguesa, e uma das mulheres que mais me influenciaram em minha vida.
•
•

Estou achando que o Universo está me enviando mensagens ... ❤️

    • Love this ‘truth bomb’ card I drew during a recent conference - “Over controlling will make you brittle.” It’s a message that serves me when I get too caught up on what it is that I must do, have or expect from others. 
And what’s the antidote for over controlling? 
Flexibility and openness. •
•
Adorei a mensagem neste cartāo que tirei durante uma conferência para coaches nesta semana.
‘Controle em demásia nos torna quebrádiços.”
E quais sāo os antídotos? Flexibilidade e abertura.

    • “Life is different where you come from 
You are different
•
•
Your choice is then
To close yourself up and turn away from new smells and colors
To continue to be as you have been
•
•
Or take the discomfort of the current of change”
