Stones in life by Fernando Pessoa (portuguese poet)

To be happy is to recognize that life, is worth living, even with all its challenges, misunderstandings, and its periods of crisis.

To be happy, is to stop being the victim of problems and being the author of your own story.

To cross deserts outside of yourself, and to find the oasis inside your soul.

To thank God for each morning for the miracle of life.

To be happy, is not to be afraid of your own emotions. It is knowing how to speak about yourself.

To have the courage to listen to a “no”. To have the strength to receive a criticism, even when unjust.

Stones in the road? I save every single one, one day I´ll build a castle.

Fernando Pessoa - portuguese poet.
(Translation in english by Isabel Gallagher)

Sintra, Portugal
