Desiderata



Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story,
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become bitter or vain,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself,
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans,
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of
trickery, But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is
full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and
disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering
the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in
sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome
discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whenever or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefor be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
with all it's sham, drudgery and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Abracadabra! Stop the Curse!

My photo
Tenafly/Bergen County, New Jersey, United States
The life of a unique and incredible woman whose fate was to be followed by drama, comedy and tragedy. She wandered under a lucky star, which protected her at all times, thus, overcoming the odds that forced her to swim against the high tides; but surprisingly, arriving onto safer and better shores by miracle or by her own strength. Character: Gentle as and orchid but solid as an oak tree. Distracted, but attentive to the best and worth things of life. Indifferent to the time that passes by, but always aware of the beauty around her. Understands and accepts pain, physical or mental, which she believes is absolutely needed in order to grow wiser and happier. She thinks that Happiness is within our reach and unhappiness is not letting go of things or people that don't belong to us any longer.
