About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live and not simply Survive

ABOUT ME

I am a human being trying to find beauty into the world, discovering new tastes, new perfumes, new skies, new music, new people. I'd like to be able to see the world from new perspectives and to open my eyes and my mind wider and wider. Maybe you could have an idea looking at my blog: www.ilimoni.wordpress.com

PHILOSOPHY

I just love to be alive and I think that doing our best to be happy is a really good way to live this life deeply.
Without forgetting that in the world there are other people, but NATURE TOO!, that deserve respect.

Muere lentamente quien se transforma en esclavo del hábito,
repitiendo todos los días los mismos trayectos,
quien no cambia de marca,
no arriesga vestir un color nuevo
y no le habla a quien no conoce.

Muere lentamente quien evita una pasión,
quien prefiere el negro sobre blanco
y los puntos sobre las "íes"
a un remolino de emociones,
justamente las que rescatan el brillo de los ojos,
sonrisas de los bostezos,
corazones a los tropiezos y sentimientos.

Muere lentamente quien no voltea la mesa
cuando está infeliz en el trabajo,
quien no arriesga lo cierto por lo incierto
para ir detrás de un sueño,
quien no se permite por lo menos una vez en la vida,
huir de los consejos sensatos.

Muere lentamente quien no viaja,
quien no lee,
quien no oye música,
quien no encuentra gracia en sí mismo.

Muere lentamente quien destruye su amor propio,
quien no se deja ayudar.

Muere lentamente,
quien pasa los días quejándose de su mala suerte
o de la lluvia incesante.

Muere lentamente,
quien abandona un proyecto antes de iniciarlo,
no preguntando de un asunto que desconoce
o no respondiendo cuando le indagan sobre algo que sabe.

Evitemos la muerte en suaves cuotas,
recordando siempre que estar vivo
exige un esfuerzo mucho mayor
que el simple hecho de respirar.

Solamente la ardiente paciencia
hará que conquistemos una espléndida felicidad.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

trying to take my time to think deeply,
I love loosing myself.
