love is a seabird and our mind is its yellow parasail…:-)

je regarde mes souvenirs d’Hawaï: des morceaux de lave, des coquillages et des coraux… le temps s’arrête sur la plage nacrée de ma mémoire, je plonge dans ton regard d’ambre, et nous nageons avec les marées de l’avenir… l’amour ressemble à un oiseau de mer: il peut se poser sur n’importe quelle vague… 🙂 quant à notre esprit, il est comme un parachute ascensionnel: il nous sert lorsqu’il est ouvert… 🙂 chaque fois que nous voyageons sur les ailes de notre vie, il faut toujours regarder devant, en conservant notre capacité d’émerveillement et en nous rappelant que:

– le plus grand handicap: la peur; – la chose la plus facile: se tromper; – la plus grande erreur, c’est d’abandonner; – le plus grand défaut: l’égoïsme; – la plus grande “distraction”: le travail; – la pire faillite: le découragement; – les meilleurs “professeurs”: les enfants; – le plus grand besoin: le bon-sens; – les pires ressentiments: la jalousie et la rancune; – notre trésor le plus précieux: l’AMOUR; – notre vrai cadeau: c’est aujourd’hui… 🙂 vivons-le, chantons-le, aimons-nous, ici et maintenant car tous nos “demains” sont entre nos mains… la générosité du cœur et la l’hospitalité chaleureuse ouvrent les portes de l’âme… restons amoureux de la vie chaque instant! 🙂

N.B. this post has been inspired by a phone conversation I had this morning with Rory G. – a very dear friend of mine… ❤ 🙂

I stare at my Hawaiian ‘souvenirs’: lava chunks, shells and corals… time stops over the pearly beach of my memory, I dive into your amber look, and we swim with the tides of the future… love looks like a seabird, it can land over any wave… 🙂 as for our mind is like a parasail, it’s useful to us if it opens up… 🙂 whenever we travel upon the wings of our life, we should always look ahead, keeping our ability of wonderment, and recalling that:

– hardest disability: fear; – easiest thing (to do): to make mistakes; – biggest error: to give up; – biggest flaw: selfishness; – biggest “fun”: our work; – worst failure: getting discouraged; – kids are the best “teachers”; – biggest need: common sense; – worst resentments: jealousy and grudge; – most precious treasure: LOVE; – this very day is a true gift… 🙂 let’s live it up, let’s sing it loud, let’s love – here and now, ’cause our “tomorrows” are in our own hands… heartfelt generosity and warm hospitality open the gate of the soul… let’s stay in love with life every second of it! 🙂

  1. Lecții de viață prețioase de la cineva care trăiește bine și frumos… Mulțumiri!

  2. Your souvenirs, Melanie, are the best kind. The memory of finding them on a warm sunny beach, for example, is so much better than remembering grabbing something off the shelf of a tourist shoppe.

    • molto grazie, amico John! you did catch my idea: I always avoid ‘tourist kitsch stores’ with foreign items ‘made in China'(or elsewhere!)… 🙂

  3. Your exuberance and positivity are contagious, my friend. Thank you. Especially love your wise list on how to live vibrantly!

    • 🙂 glad to hear my cheerful vibes & state of mind are ‘contagious’, Belle Sirène… it’s simply a question of choice(s) and decision(s)… merci, amicales pensées et une journée optimiste! 🙂

  4. I like your “lessons of life” and “kids are the best teachers”…yes!!! and for me they are “the best evaluators of soul”, copiii ca si cainii te “citesc”, nici o prefacatorie nu-i poate pacali!!! si da “oui madame”, cel mai important lucru in “relationships” este “common sense”! love!!!

    • 🙂 ma bucur ca ti-au placut sugestiile mele, Nina-Mela… @ copii & câini, adaug felinele… 😉 da, bunu’ simt bazic, elementar e extrem de necesar si important… thanx for dropping by & friendly hugs! ❤

  5. A very interesting post. I loved your enumeration. 🙂

  6. Lovely collection of souvenirs, Mélanie. Loved the parasailing pics. Hawaii is such a beautiful place. 🙂

  7. Oh, how I love the phrase that our mind is like a parasail. That should be a well worn quote, a bumper sticker–or even a tattoo. Maybe right across our foreheads and written backwards so that it’s the first thing we all see when we wake up and look into the mirror each morning. Lovely, lovely, Mélanie!

  8. Oui, savoir garder cette capacité d’émerveillement c’est l’essentiel pour profiter de la vie, sachons retrouver notre cœur d’enfant. Bonne soirée, Mélanie! Bises!

  9. Love the para sailing photos. I have experienced the adventure and loved it!

  10. Frumoase gânduri închinate iubirii universale. Numai bine și o duminică plăcută. Cu prețuire, Georgeta

  11. Nous nous reposons sur nos souvenirs
    Comme l’oiseau le fait au nid.
    Mais pour notre devenir,
    S’élancer dans le ciel gris,
    C’est y chercher sa lumière.
    Au détour du nuage, elle attend.
    Et jusqu’à notre heure dernière,
    Ouvrir nos cœurs, cela s’apprend…

    Petite poésie du dimanche matin… Amen et à plus, Hervé

  12. Agreed! Have you done parasailing? I haven’t.

  13. Sunt sigură că Rory îţi dedică un poem pentru aşa frumuseţe de gânduri! Şi ai atâta dreptate în tot ce spui, mai ales în definirea acelor atitudini, însuşiri şi sentimente pe care nu întotdeauna le interpretăm cum trebuie, dar pe care tu le-ai încadrat magistral. Şi da, da, da dragostea este cea care trebuie să guverneze viaţa! Mi-eşti dragă Melanie, cea mai dragă, pentru ceea ce eşti, pentru felul în care eşti, pentru că eşti mereu în gândul meu.

  14. Well said and done, Melanie! All the best, always, and take care! 🙂 Fabio

  15. C’est magnifique, Mélanie! Amoureux(ses) de la vie à chaque instant: OUI! Bonne nuit et agréable dimanche!
