Ser feliz é.... Posso ter defeitos, viver ansioso e ficar irritado algumas vezes, mas não esqueço de que minha vida é a maior empresa do mundo. E que posso evitar que ela vá à falência. Ser feliz é reconhecer que vale a pena viver, apesar de todos os desafios, incompreensões e períodos de crise. Ser feliz é deixar de ser vítima dos problemas e se tornar autor da própria história. É atravessar desertos fora de si, mas ser capaz de encontrar um oásis no recôndito da sua alma. É agradecer a Deus a cada manhã pelo milagre da vida. Beijos meu povo ???????????????????????????????????????? Being happy is... I may have faults, I can live anxious and be angry sometimes, but I don't forget that my life is the biggest company in the world. And that I can keep her from going bankrupt. Being happy is to recognize that it's worth living, despite all the challenges, misunderstood and periods of crisis. Being happy is to stop being a victim of trouble and become author of history itself. It's crossing deserts off of its own, but being able to find an oasis in the recontise of your soul. It's to thank Deus each morning for the miracle of life. Kisses my people ( Augusto Cury) @spiderkick @spiderfitacademia
