Until retirement ....


Rauchfrei seit 975 Tagen.......

Smoke free for 975 days.......




Sometimes I really miss the words. My occasionally pointed tongue blunts when it comes to pour my now prevailing attitude to life into clear words.

Nice if you get unexpected help.

And that came a few days ago by a longtime colleague, who, one or the other year older probably has to fight with similar things as me.

That’s why it’s not an insignificant concern for me to put the words he sent me via Whatsapp online here.

The following sentences are by Mário Raúl de Morais Andrade, Brazilian writer and musicologist.

My soul is in a hurry.

I have counted my years and found that I have less time to live than I have lived so far.
I feel like this child who has won a box of candies: the first eats it with pleasure, but when it realizes that there are only a few left, it really starts to enjoy it.

I have no time for endless conferences discussing the statutes, rules, procedures and internal rules, knowing that nothing will be achieved.
I have no time to endure absurd people who are no match for their age. I have no time to struggle with mediocrities.
I do not want to be in meetings where inflated egos march up. I can not tolerate manipulators and opportunists. I am disturbed by the envious people who try to discredit the more capable in order to seize their positions, talents and achievements.
My time is too short to discuss headlines. I want the essential, because my soul is in a hurry. Without many sweets in the box.

I want to live with people who are very human. People who can laugh about their mistakes, who do not fancy their successes. Not feeling prematurely called and not fleeing from their responsibilities. Those who defend human dignity and who only want to be on the side of truth and righteousness. It is what makes life worth living.
I want to surround myself with people who know how to touch the hearts of others. People who learned through the hard hits of life to grow through gentle touches of the soul.

Yes, I’m in a hurry, I’m in a hurry to live with the intensity that only maturity can give.
I try not to waste any of the sweets that are left to me. I’m sure they’ll be more delicious than the ones I’ve already eaten.
My goal is to reach the end, in peace with myself, my loved ones and my conscience.
We have two lives and the second begins when you realize that you have only one.

There is nothing to add!
