First Day of First Class

Today she held my hand as she walked to her first day of first class. She was both excited and nervous. Today, she still needed her mum (and dad, but I was the closest one today). This won’t always be the case and that’s OK.

I will always be there to hold her hand if she needs me but this is not my journey, it is hers. I will also let go of that hand, if that’s what she wants, and stand back as she does her own thing.

She is my daughter but I do not own her. My dreams and aspirations are not hers and nor do I wish them to be. I want her to dream big and go and chase those dreams wherever they may lead her. I will not hold her back.

My fears are not her fears. I am here to empower her not to limit her.

She is not a possession. I am a mere vessel that she used to get into the world. I will always protect her and have her back but she is her own person who is going to leave her own mark on this world.

The possibilities for her are endless.

I am so proud of her but her achievements are not mine. They’re hers.

Shine bright gorgeous girl. The world is yours.

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
