A Well-Oiled Mind

When life gets busy, I tend to forget to write. In a way I guess, I also forget about my feelings and my thoughts. And even though is good to disconnect for a while, is always necessary to go back and check how your mind is working; you see: Our mind is like a machine, if we do not oil it constantly, it starts getting rusty. We have to keep it clean, we have to take care of it. At the end of the day she is the one in charge of all of our actions. And I guess this post is super simple, just to remind you and remind myself to take care of the mind, to keep exposing thoughts, to keep sharing and learning.



The “greyness” of life


First of all I want you to look at the picture, at all the colors it has.
Why does everything have to be black or white? Grey is beautiful. If the picture was all white or all black, you wouldn’t be able to see anything. Is the different tones of grey what makes it beautiful and also; human. Visible to the human eye. You can’t expect black and white results in your life because then you will miss to see the grey. And if you miss to see the grey you won’t value it.
And I guess this doesn’t apply to every one, thankfully a lot of people out there do value the “greyness” of life. However there is also a porcentage out there who are so busy and so obsessed with trying to be perfect that they don’t see past that. And what is even more sad is that perfection doesn’t exist. That means that they will be striving for an unobtainable persuit. Wow, how tiring, to spend your days fighting for something you will never reach. It doesn’t matter in what field it is that you are striving to be perfect; whether it is at work, at school, in your family etc… You will never be able to reach it. Never. And it hurts to hear that, I know, it hurts to admit it. But it is necessary. Because only without the weight of having to be perfect off your shoulders, you will allow yourself to be good. And that’s all you can be; because perfect, perfect you can’t be.

“Now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good.”
