happy new year

(Arundhati Roy)

To love. To be loved.
To never forget your own insignificance.
To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you.
Too seek joy in the saddest places.
To pursue beauty to it's lair.
To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple.
To respect strength, never power.
Above all, to watch.
To try understand.
To never look away.
And never, never, to forget.

20 Life Lessons I Learned in My 20’s

1. If you're smiling right now, you're doing something right.

2. It's not so much what you say that counts, it's how you make people feel.

3. The biggest mistake you can make is doing nothing because you're scared to make a mistake.

4. No matter how it turns out, it always ends up just the way it should be. Either you succeed or you learn something. Win-win.

5. Freedom is the greatest gift. Self-sufficiency is the greatest freedom.

6. If you catch yourself working hard and loveing every minute of it, don't stop. You're on to something big. Because hard work ain't hard when you concentrate on your passions.

7. It's not about getting a chance, it's about taking a chance. You'll rarely be 100% sure doing nothing won't work. Sometimes you just have to go for it !

8. Complaining is like slapping yourself for slapping yourself. It doesn't solve the problem, it just hurts you more.

9. The one with nothing to hide is always the one left standing tall.

10. You can press forwars long after you can't. It's just a matter of wanting it bad enough.

11. There's a big difference between knowing and doing. Knowledge is basically useless without action.

12. In work and business, when they need you more than you need them, you have succeeded.

13. Everything that happens in life is neither good nor bad. It just depends on your perspective.

14. We are all weird. And life is weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatiblem with ours, we call it love.

15. True friendship and true love do sustain the tests of distance and time.

16. You can't change who you are. You can only change what you know and how you apply this knowledge.

17. It is okay to be angry. It is never okay to be cruel.

18. Even when you feel like you have nothing, someone else likely has far less. Find them and help them. You'll see why.

19. Having a thousand credentials on the wall will not make you a decent human being. But genuinely helping one person everyday will.

20. Remeber, change happens for a reason. Roll with it. It won't be easy, but it will be worth it.

Happy B'Day for me !

I could tell you a million times and I'd still want to say it again.

Ser capitã desse mundo, poder rodar sem fronteiras; viver um ano em segundos; não achar sonhos besteira; me encantar com um livro que fale sobre vaidade; quando mentir for preciso, poder falar a verdade.

love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't; and believe that everything happens for a reason. if you get a chance, take it. if it changes your life - let it. nobody said that life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Think how different life would be if you had never met the one person who changed everything.
