Love and a Shed

Some pictures are just beautifully inspiring…

they carry you immediately to a place, a feeling, an alternative real world out there.

You can see yourself there, with a story to tell and many stories to live ahead.

What a dream this would be!

A far away dream in the ultimate simplicity.

The true definition of “Love and a Shed”!

Be Original. Be you.

Yes, it’s beautiful when you free yourself from other people’s expectations about who you should be.

Some will think you’re too sweet or too nice.

Others will think you’re too quiet.

Others will think you’re weird.

Others will think you have a temper.

People form their opinion on you based on a tiny interaction… based on a fraction of who you really are.

They’ll judge you by the way you talk (or don’t), the way you dress, the way you laugh….

They will judge you as per their own versions of truth and “standards”.

There’s no way you’re going to please everyone.

So… do yourself a favor and please yourself.

Be the person you want to be.

And be true to your own standards.

Free yourself from judgmental conclusions.

Don’t judge anyone, regardless if others judge you or not. Judgement comes often with ignorance.

Improve yourself.

Be the best version of you.

Focus on yourself.

Be confident enough to not live your life depending on other people’s opinions.

Respect them but don’t allow them to define you.

It’s a work in progress.

Don’t waste it and make it count.

A Nation’s Dream in a World Cup

World Cup kickoff was yesterday.

The world is now watching and thinking of one thing only. How is their country going to do in the World Cup?

I wonder why we put so much faith and trust in our team.

I think it’s because those 11 players are bringing yourself out there for everyone to see it.

They represent millions of people.

Portugal is a small, beautiful country.

Unfortunately poorly managed, with lots of corruption in between.

However… the football team aims higher. It aims to bring us back into the world as once before.

It wants to make a whole Nation Proud. And the 10 million Portuguese people want and need to feel Proud at times like these.

So we support these 11 individuals, who get together as One Team, as One Nation, to make a statement for us.

To speak for us, to show who we are.

If we lose, FairPlay will be here to say… better luck next time.

But we don’t aim for better luck next time.

We dream of Victory.

We dream of Pride, with full heart and soul with those guys, who in 90 minutes need to give it all, to make their dreams come true.

Because their dreams are somehow ours too.

The official Portugal World Cup song has been released and it says it all:

“Sometimes I feel like giving up but I just can’t, it isn’t in my blood.”

It’s been adjusted to say (in Portuguese):

“Eu sou o que trago comigo. Se acreditar, sonho contigo.” (I’m what I’m carrying with me. If I believe, I’ll dream of you.)

“Eu vou acreditar que vamos conseguir, que vamos conquistar. Nós somos Portugal, uma só voz no coração!” (I believe we’re going to make it, we will conquer it. We are Portugal, one single voice in our heart!)

Especially when you live abroad, these words echo and make so much sense.

It’s bigger than the Cup, bigger than the title.

It’s a feeling inside that you want to show the world.

We are not looking for arrogance nor lose our humbleness.

We want to feel Proud as a Nation. So we believe.

Solid Gold

Everyone has a story… many stories.

Each one of us is a tiny little dot in this planet…

And yet each one of us is so full of so many different things, so complex, with so many layers, different sides to our personalities.

A palet of different colors.

And each color comes in so many shades.

So, one thing is for sure…

In between this world of feelings, thoughts, actions, words… there’s light and there’s darkness.

There’s the beauty of being Unique and unlike anyone else. That’s who you are.

And that’s pure, solid gold.

Playing with Love

Does Love always have to be heavy?

It seems to me that… no!

Love shouldn’t be anywhere near heavy.

It should be light, in every way.

Light as in not heavy, light as in shiny, light as in your guiding light!

Sometimes it becomes heavy… it’s not always simple.

It’s not always what you wished for.

But most times I’d say it should be playful.

What I remember the most about being in love was feeling light, safe and playful. I was laughing all the time.

Every tiny meaningless thing made me laugh.

Playing with Snapchat also makes me laugh… turning the Love theme into something light and fun is always a good option when you really don’t want to dive your mind into the depth of it (not always possible).

The Perfect Picture

How perfect is this?

It just captures pure beauty… simplicity.

It captures the free spirit, a connection in a contrast.

The synchronicity of a moment.

The peaceful curiosity.

I absolutely love this picture (I didn’t take it though)!
