SNI wants to know about the movie that she is about to produced. Marinella begged and said she is not yet in the mood or ready to talk about the film. There are still a lot of things that might happen, or changes.
She is more interested talking about her children , especially her youngest, the princely and adorable curly haired tot, Alexander Robin Hardman (of German/Filipino Lineage). He is sure to be a star soon. And of course, her dream of having a beach wedding or garden wedding in not too distant future.
“I am still a woman who is dreaming that kind of wedding. Like a Disney character or even just a simple character. It’s a normal thing to dream. And that’s my dream as a woman.“
“At my age, I still feel the butterflies in the stomach. If someone shows his thoughtfulness and sweetness, I still feel that romantic excitement.”
“Love makes us young again when youth has passed.” Marinella meaningfully laughs. “ I feel like a teenager these days.“
So Marinella is inspired.
“I am always inspired. I am happy.“
“I hope I can fulfill the things I want to do and planning to do soon. I am a very busy woman. Attending to my business and fulfilling my duties and responsibilities as a mom especially I have a two year old Alexander Robin and he starts attending school, too. I deserve to be happy , time for myself and have a break.”
“It’s amazing when something comes in your life without expecting it to happen, but suddenly there, right in front of you. Then that’s opportunity, grab it.”
“I don’t want to do something which I am not fully sure of the outcome or if it’s not going to be beneficial or will not help me grow as a person.”
“For me, being a mother made me a better person. And coming home to my children every night reminded me what I was working for. And being a better person made me a better mother because by pursuing my dreams, I was modeling for my kids how to pursue their dreams. And for me, it’s not an easy job. It’s a tough job.”
“I could be anyone I want to be… I could be a simple mother… A crazy friend, or maybe a runaway producer… Or just a simple woman having a sunset beach wedding, smiling from ear to ear, despite of the pandemic, feeling the excitement of a romance, a woman who feels the butterflies in her stomach.”
So, there! Marinella Moran’s priorities these days. With this, she is sending love to everyone.
