🎁 Valentin's Present

March 18 · Issue #29 · View online

The best content I've ever found. Mouthwatering concepts, tempting questions, juicy books, delicious songs, exquisite short films, and other surprises.

Provoking Picture
"Lunch Atop A Skyscraper". A classic. NYC, 1932.

Mouthwatering Concepts
This is one of those obscure PDFs with great content: “how to become an individual or save the world”.
Some quotes from the PDF:
“fear is what keeps you in the herd, not what confronts you once you leave.”
In the areas of career, personal goals and lifestyle, there is precious little encouragement to follow your own values unless they happen to mirror the status quo.
Be wary of norms and their indescriminate magnetism. Be careful never to do something simply because it’s normal.
Tempting Question
Are there any lost friendships from your past that may be worth rekindling?
Spicy Habit
You’ve probably heard of “Gratitude Journals”: writing a couple things you’re grateful for every day. Amazing habit.
Great thought about it I came across this week:
“One of the reasons people have told me they’ve quit their daily gratitude journal is because it feels repetitive after a while.
It’s a fallacy of our modern society that we only value the new and exciting. It’s great to be thankful for the same things every day.”
Exquisite Short Film
This is a short film I watched over 7 years ago, but I still remember it, because it is so good:
The Butterfly Circus. 22mins.
Finger-licking Quote
Great quote en Español:
Me encantan ese tipo de personas con olor a quiero, puedo, y me lo merezco; con gusto a no lo sé todo, escucho y aprendo; con mirada de sí, y sonrisa de gracias.
My English translation:
I love those type of people with smell of I want, I can, and I deserve it; with taste of I don’t know everything, I listen and I learn; with a “yes” gaze, and a “thank you” smile.
Delicious Music
This week I stumbled upon this song and it surprised me in a good way:
It’s chill in a way useful for working/studying (the vibe/level of energy and no-lyrics would fit in my Grapes playlist), but at minute 3:15 (when most songs would be over), there’s a chill rap, in a vibe that could fit into my Risotto playlist.
Hope you have a great week,
