I just arrived in Florianopolis, Brazil at the very end of this past week. 🇧🇷
I am here making good on a promise I made to Tatiana’s mom nearly 10 years ago when I swept her off her island.
It’s a very short trip for the distance as we head back this coming Saturday. But we are making the most of the time with family.
Yesterday, we had Sunday dinner with her brother Lu.
On the way, we stopped by downtown Florianopolis. As I always like to visit the important places on this island in which I lived for nearly 2 years.🏝
And this new painting near the city center really stuck out to me. 🎨
In fact, it was a stark reminder that travel is the incredible study of human nature.
As no matter what country or continent, you come from. No matter the language you speak, humans are the same to our core.
Yes, we have many cultural differences.
But we experience the same emotions, fears, and desires.
Human nature is human nature…
And while only the artist knows the true meaning, I took it as this…
We all wear masks as we navigate the difficulties of life.
Challenge and suffering are tough realities of being alive.
And many times, we suffer in silence.
Which means at any given moment, you are fighting a silent battle that’s unknown to most of the world.
So am I. 🙌
And so is everyone you know.
This is what makes us human and live.
So my message today is to be a little more kind. Be a little more patient. Be a little more understanding. Be a little more compassionate. Be a little more loving. ❤️
We all deeply need these things which if acted upon, will make our world a better place.
Have a great Monday and a fantastic start to your week!
