When i’m sad i buy flowers
Flowers. Yesterday, I was scrolling the facebook feed when I saw the news that Nara Almeida had passed away. For those unfamiliar with the situation, Nara was a very gorgeous Brazilian girl, digital influencer, who was struggling with stomach cancer and was sharing everything on Instagram. Same cancer that my mother died from. Maybe because of that, and because seeing everything she did make me relive what my mother had gone through, I was bound to her. I was really hoping that she got better even though deep inside I knew it was hard to survive. Because cancer is a son of a bitch, and I’ve seen so many beautiful people get destroyed by it.

And so I went to buy a bouquet of flowers. It may be silly, but I believe flowers give comfort. At least, they always make me feel better.
I mean, this all made me remember both my father and me lived with my mother’s illness that I found myself thinking that we really need to live today in a carpe diem way. The moment, the now. Because tomorrow no one knows what it will be like. So let’s complain less and be happier, okay?
