“Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be.”


HellO, WOrld!

Yes, sometimes you need to put some distance between you and the rest of the world. It helps you see things more clearly. In recent weeks my life was on fast forward, with all the work to relaunch the blog, so today I’ll make a break. And I’ll remember how much I like The Little Prince stories. And that I promise myself that I will never be a grown-up person, and I will continue to see thing with the heart.
Because we mature, we forget the essential in our chase after things. Things that seem terribly important on our big planet, but on the Little Prince M-612 asteroid’s that struggle for things would be terribly funny.

“I know a planet where there is a certain red-faced gentleman. He has never smelled a flower. He has never looked at a star. He has never loved any one. He has never done anything in his life but add up figures. And all day he says over and over, just like you: ‘I am busy with matters of consequence!’ And that makes him swell up with pride. But he is not a man– he is a mushroom!”

“A what?”

“A mushroom!”

The little prince was now white with rage.

“The flowers have been growing thorns for millions of years. For millions of years the sheep have been eating them just the same. And is it not a matter of consequence to try to understand why the flowers go to so much trouble to grow thorns which are never of any use to them? Is the warfare between the sheep and the flowers not important? Is this not of more consequence than a fat red-faced gentleman’s sums? And if I know– I, myself– one flower which is unique in the world, which grows nowhere but on my planet, but which one little sheep can destroy in a single bite some morning, without even noticing what he is doing– Oh! You think that is not important!”

His face turned from white to red as he continued:

“If some one loves a flower, of which just one single blossom grows in all the millions and millions of stars, it is enough to make him happy just to look at the stars. He can say to himself, ‘Somewhere, my flower is there…’ But if the sheep eats the flower, in one moment all his stars will be darkened… And you think that is not important!”

Of course, it’s not so easy all the time to see the importance of simple things in life. We are so busy to keep focus on our goals, that we forget to be happy. Because happines came from simple things. A flower, a sunny day, a good book or a walk in a park with your beloved one. A good night kiss. Or the good morning kiss.
