🇺🇸 I’ve developed a behavior of “saving for special occasions”. Like, if I got a new jacket, I will keep wearing the old one regularly and save the new one to special occasions that would almost never happen. I don’t know if you have the same behavior, but I always come to a conclusion that it is something really dumb!
Some people use to say, at new year’s, phrases like, “Happy New You!”, with is nice and catchy. It’s a sort of motivation to shift to a better condition of attitude for life. Then we say that the new year will be the best of our life, better things will happen and everything will be special. Usually we want to say this every new year, because in fact, we’ve spent most of the year wearing the “old jacket”, if you know what I mean.
Different from time, the “old me” just doesn’t disappear like the old year. Old thoughts, old impulses, old actions will follow us during every day of the year, and before we realize, they will overpower the “new you”. We need more than just idealize. The “new you” is our ideals and dreams. The “old you” is our willpower. The thing is, willpower always wins. The successful “new you” will be the one who steals the scene and shows up, it doesn’t matter how special the occasion is. The “new you” makes it special.
Get rid of your “old jacket”. Switch the willpower button to your “new you”. Bring it with you wherever you go. And when it become old, you will say goodbye to him, and start to wear the next new one.
🇺🇸Teenagers from the 90’s grieved for Dylan this week. Luke Perry died from consequences of a stroke and brought back to a lot of minds the memories of an icon for a generation. Dylan was Perry’s character in the series Beverly Hills 90210, along with Brandon, Brenda, Kelly, Donna, Steve, David, Andrea and Valerie caused together a huge earthquake in a generation creating new way to see life and live it! I was on my 20’s, starting my work, but I was able to follow that crew in their adventures between school, mansions, nice cars and beaches. They had a life! That’s how young eyes used to watch them. It was so strong that producers did a sequel from the series years later. Grown up life around teenager’s issues. So I’m giving my perspective from what that series caused to a generation for around 10 years. It seems like the idea of teenagers having cars, driving around everywhere, having money, with a very little supervision of parents was the dream for everyone under 20 years old. In that point Beverly Hills 90210 was completely different from other teenagers series. It was not only about the issues in that phase of life, it was about struggling with independence, having the power to make their own decision and face them. Struggling, but having friends around for good and bad. It worked and hit those in front the screen. Sometimes TV hit the bullseye. Sometimes we allow other people getting to our life and telling us what’s the best way to live it. And that happens just by a click! For a lot of people the series is still going on, in reality. That’s the power of Dylan. The guy who could be whoever he wanted, good or bad, because he was there, living other people’s dream. To the family, friends and admirers, my sincere condolences. That’s it. Denison
🇧🇷Adolescentes dos anos 90 choraram pelo Dylan nesta semana. Luke Perry morreu de consequências de um derrame e trouxe de volta para muitas mentes as lembranças de um ícone de uma geração. Dylan, era o personagem de Luke na série ‘Barrados no Baile”, junto com Brandon, Brenda, Kelly.Donna, Steve, David, Andrea e Valerie, tiveram um grande impacto criando uma nova maneira de ver e viver a vida. Eu estava nos meus 20 e começava a trabalhar, mas pude acompanhar o grupo em suas aventuras entre escola, mansões, carrões e praias. Eles viviam bem! Era assim que os jovens olhares os assistiam. Foi tão forte que produtores fizeram uma sequência anos depois. Vida adulta em torno de assuntos da adolescência. Vou deixar a minha perspectiva de como o seriado influenciou uma geração por 10 anos. Parece que a ideia de adolescentes terem carros, dinheiro, dirigirem pra onde quiserem, com o mínimo de supervisão dos pais era o sonho pra qualquer um com menos de 20. Nesse ponto, “Barrados no Baile” foi bem diferente de outras séries do gênero. Não era só a respeito de problemas nessa fase da vida, era enfrentar com independência, com o poder de fazer suas próprias decisões e encara-las. Enfrentar, tendo os amigos junto, para o que der e vier. Funcionou e pegou quem estava na frente da tela. As vezes a TV acerta o alvo. As vezes deixamos os outros entrarem em nossa vida e dizerem qual a melhor maneira de viver. E acontece só com um clique! Para muitos o seriado continua, na realidade. Este é o poder de Dylan. O cara que podia ser quem ele queria, bom ou mau, porque ele estava lá, vivendo o sonho dos outros. Para a família, amigos e admiradores, meus sentimentos pela perda. É isso. Denison
