“What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you will do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.” -Pedro Arrupe #starsouls
The same way you fall in love with someone else. Acknowledge the bad, embrace the good, and grow. It happens slowly because love takes time to build. So, you take it day by day. You start being kinder to yourself. You talk to yourself with the same kindness and respect as you would someone important to you. You recognize your mistakes, but you also decide to forgive yourself for them. You spend purposeful time getting to know yourself, the same way you’d spend time getting to know someone you are interested in. What you like, what you dislike, what makes you happy, and everything else in between.
You don’t wait until you’re perfect” to begin loving yourself either because if you think about it, you love others not because they are perfect, but because they are them. You love them as they are, at their best and at their worst. You decide to love yourself in the same unconditional way as well. You start by giving yourself the same type of love, time, and commitment you have given to others.” #starsouls
“For those who are struggling with having and finding purpose: maybe, for now, your purpose is waking up in the morning and taking on the day ahead. Maybe your purpose is continuing to live despite it all." #starsouls
“Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.” #starsouls
"So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow."-Attachments, Rainbow Rowell #moonlovers 🌛
По-моему, все складывается не плохо: здоровье восстанавливается, попа качается, да и отпуск совсем скоро начинается. 🙇🏻♀️

- "Ficar a ver navios" dicono spesso quaggiù.
“Stare a guardare le navi”, nel porto più grande di tutto il continente, ha un significato ben più profondo e radicato nella cultura portoghese.
Questo modo di dire nasce dal fatto che nel ‘500 il Re del Portogallo, Sebastiano I, partì per una spedizione in Marocco e non vi fece più ritorno.
I cittadini, allora, si recavano su uno dei colli della città, quello del Miradouro di Santa Caterina, a scrutare l’orizzonte nell’attesa di vedere apparire le navi del proprio monarca.
Oggi, seduto sulle terrazze del Monastero dos Jeronimos, mi sono preso il tempo per godermi il sole scendere sotto l'orizzonte e lasciare che dipingesse di mille sfumature le mille arcate in pietra.
Oggi mi sono sentito un po' come quei cittadini lisboeti, senza attendere alcuna nave. #Lisbona
