~ Mario de Andrade
‘I counted my years
And realized that I have
Less time to live by,
Then I have lived so far.
I feel like a child who won a pack of candies: at first, he ate them with pleasure,
But when he realized that there was little left, he began to taste them intensely.
I have no time for endless meetings where the statutes, rules, procedures & internal regulations are discussed,
knowing that nothing will be done.
I no longer have the patience
To stand absurd people who,
despite their chronological age, have not grown up.
I want the essence,
my spirit is in a hurry.
I do not have much candy
In the package anymore.
I want to live next to humans,
very realistic people who know How to laugh at their mistakes,
Who are not inflated by their own triumphs
And who take responsibility for their actions.
It is the essentials that make life useful.
I want to surround myself with people
who know how to touch the hearts of those whom hard strokes of life have learned to grow, with sweet touches of the soul.
Yes, I’m in a hurry.
I’m in a hurry to live with the intensity that only maturity can give.
I do not intend to waste any of the remaining desserts.
I am sure they will be exquisite,
much more than those eaten so far.
My goal is to reach the end satisfied and at peace with my loved ones and my conscience.
We have two lives & the second begins when you realize you only have one.’
You have achieved enough milestones, the weekend is here, take out time to create some moments.
Make the right choice.
Living a meaningful life is not about being rich, popular, highly educated, or being perfect.
Life is about being honest, being strong, real, humble, and being able to reach out & touch the lives of others while holding gratitude in your heart.
Live us not about having and getting but about being & becoming.
Make the right choice, live a meaningful life, live in the moment, have a great weekend & stay Blessed forever!
