Sossego, com um sorriso nos lábios...

“It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sometimes we get damped in melancholy. We have a different look at life and it doesn’t feel meaningful. On the contrary. All the mistakes, the avoidances, the regrets seem to come to surface and float on the surface of the ocean.

When I get this feeling, I want sit back and clean up my home, clean my body, draw, write or read, and listen to soft music. I don’t get angry with myself for not being enthusiast about life. Melancholy is sometimes necessary to rearrange our thoughts.

When you need to be more pensive about your choices it’s natural that you get a bit sad. The sobriety of Life feels profound and heavy. When we’re happy we’re distracted about everything, we’re like kids, enthusiastic about everything, curious, brave in exploring.

That’s why “Sossego” (calmness) is sometimes important. Reevaluate your choices, reconnect with your deep self, continue the voyage within and get a little bit closer of being free of conditioning, social conditioning.
