love?

What is love? 

Most people when they hear this word they immediately think of a couple. Two people that love each other. But love is so much more than that.

Love is more than that feeling that you have when you see your partner. It is more than beeing there whenerver the other need. It is more than forgive each other.

Love can be shared with everyone and at all moments.

Love is listening to the other person, to not interrupt him/her. It is to understand the other  and to not be judgemental. Make an effort to compreehend their point of view.

Love is to not judge people for their race, colour, religion or any other aspect.

But love is not just between people.

We should love our planet, this beautiful place full of trees, big oceans and so many different life forms that live in this ecosystem with us.

We should love the animals, the  earth and the oceans and we should all be grateful for what we have and love them even more.

I love my family, my friends and all the people that made me the person that i am today.

I love to just go outside and see the children playing and laughting and their grandparents watching   them and felling happy but nostalgic remebering those times when they were kids. Seeing this makes me see that everybody is living their unique lifes full of great and bad moments and makes me see how beautiful life is.

I love my life and i love the fact that i had the change to live in this beautiful world that we unfortunately made it worse but i have faith that one day everything will be better. And i just need to be grateful for what i have and fight for what i don’t have because everything is possible.

And you? What do you love?

We are a virus to the planet

Humans. We are considered the most intelligent specie in the world, yet we are the worst.

We judge, we kill, we steal,we pollute, we destroy.
In the past we thought the planet earth was in the centre of the universe but now we believe men is in the centre of the planet.

Because of factories, animal production and all the other gases and toxic chemicals that we emit we are destroying our planet.
It is thought that every day 150 species are extinct ( of course we are not sure because we are not certain of how many species there are in the world). 

And it isn´t just this that is wrong with us.

For every ten humans that die, 47,560 animals will be killed at the same time for human consumption. Over 150 billion animals will be slaughtered this year which equates to about 500 million animals a day.

The cruelty doesn’t end here, In China and many places around the world, animals are killed, tortured or skinned alive for their fur, with them getting electrocuted to death,
having their skin peeled off and being dumped on piles of skinned bodies, while still alive.
This happens millions of times a year and is so cruel that it can take these skinned animals hours to die, leaving them suffering for all that time. This is used to help make those fur coats which people wear and with tens of millions being killed a year, it’s one of the cruellest things which humans do to animals.

We also cause suffer to other people

We create wars because of money and power.
We don´t respect other cultures.
We judge people on their skin colour, sexuality, race and gender.

In the last post i said that it would be better if we lived life the way people lived in the beggining and these are just some of the reasons why i think this way.
But i believe we still have time, it will be a big journey but we can if we want

The change begins with you.
Dont´t waste, recycle, try to eat less meat, be a good person, don´t insult other people, be caring, Love people and the animals.
we are just one and if you dont treat well others you are not treating yourself right.
I am not perfect, i don´t do everything right but i know i can be better every day and you can too. So Start now, make the difference.

If you want more information here are some documentaries about:

how animals are treated in slaughterhouses: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4TON3BxTxg

the effects of meat production in the environment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CJxGSatpbU

also  i have here a 5 minute video about the fur industry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAwHtWqV0sg

i don´t want in any way to insult you or your way of living. I still eat meat but i am trying to reduce the quantities. I still live with my parents and since they are the people that pay everything and cook is difficult to change quikly. I know that every situation is different so changes could be easier or more difficult.
I just can´t be silent. informing people is the first step for change and if this makes someone change even if it is just on person i will be happy.

life before everything

A long time ago life for people was easy, like any other animal alive.
We knew how to feel the wind that went through  our bodies, we knew how to relax and see the world.

We changed a paradise to something similar to hell with wars, works that people don´t enjoy and things that were put on our minds like… religion.  Even if you are religious  you have to agree that  it caused a lot of wars. A lot of people died because of that. Every religion wants the same and that is love, that everybody loves each other. unfortunatelly it seems that most of people don´t see that and it is sad. Of course we are not all good people so they invented church …  So they could take advantage from  people  who believed in god  ( i am not saying that religion Is a bad thing, it isn’t, you believe in whatever you want. Religion is one thing church is another).

With this i want to say that humans always had and they will continue to have this instinct to have more at all costs and we can`t do anything about it. If we have a tent, we want a house, if we have a house we want a mansion…
And we do so many bad things to accomplish what we want. We kill animals, we destroy the health of  the planet and we even destroy entire countries just because we want to be better than others.

A long time ago…Everything was simple. We were born, had children ( a lot of them) at 16 and then we died at 30/40 but we knew how to live, intensely. we did what we wanted to do.

We knew how to appreciate this gift called life, we apreciated simple gestures of affection and we knew how wonderful  this world was.

 

Live your dreams

I know i am a teenager and you probably think that i don´t know anything about life but some things that you, the adults, say don´t make a lot of sence.

You always told me to dream and that the sky was the limit but when it comes to jobs and careers it seems that you don´t keep this idea.

You say that i should do what i like and believe that i CAN do what i want but when i say that i want to win money being a creative person (whether is painting, writing or designing ) adults always say ” don´t do that, get a real job”

But WHAT IS A REAL JOB?

is a real job a job that you don´t enjoy?

a job that makes you hate mondays?

a job to work from 8 to 5?

a job just to earn money?

a job that makes you unhappy and miserable?

That is not my idea of a REAL JOB

It doesn´t make sence to study something that you DON´T like, to work  in something that you DON`T want, for when you retire you could finally enjoy life. but that  will be too late. you are going to be old and you are going to feel sad that you wasted your life.

and maybe you will not even get that far in life. maybe you will die young. we never know.

When you do something that you like you WILL be good at it. work hard and eventually the world will recognize your effort and you will be happy in life.

Enjoy the present because that is the only thing that you have and you don´t know if the future will exist. Life doesn´t make sence if you are not enjoying it.
