Salvador

O Salvador Sobral fala do amor, está à espera de um transplante cardíaco, ganha o festival da Eurovisao, e chama-se Salvador. Um prenúncio no mínimo estranho...

Emoçoes

Deveríamos ter sido elaborados sem a capacidade de sentirmos emoçoes negativas. A vida seria tao mais feliz. Tao mais fácil. E essa teoria de que é assim que evoluímos, já está um pouco gasta, para nao dizer outra coisa.

Alive



Lyrics
I was born in a thunderstorm
I grew up overnight
I played alone
I played on my own
I survived
Hey
I wanted everything I never had
Like the love that comes with light
I wore envy and I hated that
But I survived
I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don't change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you're taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing
I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
I found solace in the strangest place
Way in the back of my mind
I saw my life in a stranger's face
And it was mine
I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don't change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you're taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing
I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
You took it all, but I'm still breathing
You took it all, but I'm still breathing
You took it all, but I'm still breathing
You took it all, but I'm still breathing
You took it all, but I'm still breathing
You took it all, but I'm still breathing
You took it all, but I'm still breathing
You took it all, but I'm still breathing
I have made every single mistake
That you could ever possibly make
I took and I took and I took what you gave
But you never noticed that I was in pain
I knew what I wanted; I went in and got it
Did all the things that you said that I wouldn't
I told you that I would never be forgotten
And all in spite of you

And I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing
I'm alive (You took it all, but I'm still breathing)
(You took it all, but I'm still breathing)
I'm alive (You took it all, but I'm still breathing)
(You took it all, but I'm still breathing)
I'm alive (You took it all, but I'm still breathing)
(You took it all, but I'm still breathing)
I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive

Questao eterna...

Como é que se deve lidar com alguém permanentemente insatisfeito? Já tentei perceber, mas nao está fácil.

Infinito

Se olhassemos tanto para o Infinito como olhamos para o nosso umbigo, seriamos muito mais felizes.

Aos meus pais...

Hoje fui levar os meus pais ao aeroporto, pois eles vieram cá passar as festas e tiveram de regressar a Portugal. No regresso a casa, tive uma estranha sensação, como se tentáculos se entrelaçassem na minha garganta, e chorei desalmadamente. Quando já me sentia ligeiramente aliviada emocionalmente, tentei compreender o porquê desta minha angústia exprimida através do choro. Um turbilhão surgiu na minha mente.

Primeiramente, os meus pais são das melhores pessoas que conheci em toda a minha vida: são humildes, tremendamente inteligentes e práticos, apreciam as pequenas coisas como se lhes dessemos o Mundo, valorizam a agricultura e os animais (o que me fascina nos dias de hoje mais do que nunca), apreciam a liberdade, e sobretudo, conhecem-me e têm um amor incondicional por mim.

Então, surgiu na minha mente uma outra visão: a do meu trabalho. Cuido de pessoas idosas e em fase terminal há cerca de cinco anos. E amo o que faço. Os idosos que cuido, aos meus olhos, é como se fizessem parte da minha família e a minha felicidade depende da deles. Além de ser enfermeira, assumo diáriamente o papel de neta e enche-os de mimos, psicóloga e tento compreendê-los, cabeleireira e manicure pois eles adoram sentirem-se apaparicados, e graças ao maldito Alzheimer, também assumo o papel de anfitriã tentando acalmá-los em fases de crise e desorientação.

Quando terminei de fazer estas duas análises, apercebi-me então que emocionalmente justapus todas estas visões, e apercebi-me do quanto tenho medo de ver os meus pais envelhecerem e se tornarem nos idosos que cuido todos os dias. E não apenas de envelhecerem, mas também de se sentirem sós ou abandonados como muitos pacientes exprimem todos os dias enquanto lhes faço a higiene e os visto.

Se hoje estou a escrever este texto, é para realizar o que os habitantes do país onde resido chamam de "auto-cura". Assim, lerei e relerei este texto quando a angústia se apoderar de mim novamente, e tranquilizar-me-ei, pois no meu coração sei que o sentimento de abandono ou de solidão nunca será sentido pelos meus pais. O meu amor por eles é imenso, e no que depender de mim, jamais os abandonarei. Cuidarei sempre deles, e nunca deixarei de lhes dizer o quanto os amo e adoro, pois se o valor desta vida existe, é porque o amor existe.

Problemas...

Porque é que as pessoas criam problemas onde e quando nao existem?
