Leonardo’s first ‘monthiversary’

Leo, 1 month

Life is an opportunity, seize it. Life is beauty, admire it. Life is bliss, taste it. Life is a dream, make it real.

Life is a challenge, face it. Life is a duty, fulfill it. Life is a game, play it. Life is precious, take care of it.

Life is wealth, value it. Life is love, experience it. Life is a mystery, discover it. Life is a promise, fulfill it.

Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is struggle, accept it. Life is an adventure, dare it.

Life is life, fight for it.


Do love life as it is, love it fully, unpretentiously. Do love it when they love you or when they hate you, love it when nobody understands you, or when everybody understands you.

Do love it when everybody leaves you, or when they celebrate you as a king. Love it when they steal you everything, or when they offer you anything as a present. Love it when it makes sense, or when it seems it doesn’t make sense at all.

Do love it at the top of your joy, or in the deepest sorrow. Love it when you feel strong, or when you feel weak. Love it when you are scared, or when you have plenty of courage. Love it not only for the big pleasures, and for the enormous satisfactions, do love it for the smallest joys as well.

Do love it even if it doesn’t give you all what it could, do love it even if it is not as you wish it. Do love it every time you are born, and every time you are about to die.

But do not love without love.

Do not ever live without life!

(Mother Theresa of Calcutta)
