The age of innocence is not gone

 A few nights ago I watched Diana Vreeland: The eye has to travel. You know how much I admire this woman, from my post about the Empress of Fashion: A life of Diana Vreeland book. But every time I read a new article or book and every time I see a new sequence with her, I get mesmerized yet again. This time these words got stuck into my head:
“I shall die young. I don’t know whether it will be at 70, 80 or 90. But I shall die young.”

But even so… I wonder if I can be that girl. Because, until now I’ve been the girl who wanted to be older when she was younger, and younger now, when she is older. An old boyfriend once told me that I sometimes act like an old lady and that drove me crazy, and made me introspect so deep; that now I’m always so aware of every mature/childish thing I say or do. Yes, it’s better to be young at heart. All your life, if you find it possible in yourself. That makes you  enthusiastic of every thing around you as if you experience it for the first time. It makes you believe in people and open your heart. It makes you want to play games (not video games, Lana!) and when you’re hurt, you’re so hurt you think there’s nothing else more important on Earth than your sufferance. First times are so stressful, so full of butterflies in our stomach, so unbelievable amazing!
So I’m asking you(and I’m asking myself): when is the last time when you did something new and felt incredibly uplifted and YOUNG?

Acum cateva seri am vazut documentarul Diana Vreeland: The eye has to travel (multumesc pentru cadou, FashionDays.ro). Stiti cat de mult o admir pe aceasta femeie, mai ales daca ati citit articolul pe care l-am scris despre cartea Empress of Fashion: A life of Diana Vreeland. Dar de fiecare data cand citesc ceva nou despre ea sau vad o inregistrare pe care nu am mai vazut-o, ma simt subjugata de magia din jurul ei.  De data asta mi-au ramas intiparite in minte cuvintele:
“O sa mor tanara. Nu stiu daca voi avea 70, 80 sau 90 de ani. Dar stiu ca voi fi tanara.”
Dar chiar si sub inspiratia acestor cuvinte puternice ma intreb daca eu voi gasi puterea in mine sa fiu mereu tanara. Pentru ca pana acum am fost fata care cand era mica voia sa fie mare, si acum ca e mare, vrea sa fie mica. Un fost prieten mi-a spus odata ca ma comport uneori precum o femeie batrana. Asta m-a enervat atat de rau incat m-a determinat sa caut adanc in mine si sa dau de capat acestui comportament. Acum, fiecare alegere pe care o fac este extrem de constienta, fie ca ma comport precum un “om mare”, fie ca sunt libera precum un copil.
Da, este de 100 de ori mai frumos sa ai sufletul tanar. Poate nu mai bine, dar mai frumos cu siguranta. Si daca poti sa-l pastrezi asa pentru tot restul vietii, considera-te un norocos!
Sa fii tanar inseamna sa fii plin de entuziasm si receptiv la tot ce e nou si tot ce te inconjoara – ca si cum ai vedea totul acum, pentru prima oara. Te ajuta sa crezi in oameni si sa iti deschizi inima cu usurinta. Te face sa vrei sa te joci iar atunci cand suferi, suferi cu toata fiinta ta, din toti rarunchii, crezand ca nu exista nimic mai important pe planeta decat suferinta ta. Primele dati… atat de emotionante si stresante, cu fluturi in stomac si nervi la pamant, atat de incredibile si de minunate.
Asa ca va intreb (si ma intreb) cand este ultima oara cand ati facut ceva nou si v-ati simtit plini de speranta, fericiti, TINERI?
