m a r r a k e c h | dreaming ?. Six weeks ago, I had the greatest pleasure of joining @smithhotels, @garancedore and @atelierdore for the first-ever Atelier Doré retreat, held at the very, very magical @elfennmarrakech. It was an incredibly inspiring week and I feel so lucky to have met so many strong, independent, passionate and creative women. For a little recap, head on over to the site now (link in profile ↑ ). And for any of you who might be interested in doing something similar, the good news is that @smithhotels, @garancedore and @atelierdore plan on doing at least two more retreats in 2018 (in equally amazing locations) ?. Just keep an eye on the @atelierdore Facebook page for more details ✨. And thank you for the pic, Pia & @atelierdore xx. #atelierdoredoes #itsbeautifulhere

Interiors, seascapes, lovely street scenes . . . it’s a wonderful world we get to peep into via this account, but don’t hold us responsible for the time lost daydreaming.

Do what you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.

Here’s someone who is doing just that (i.e., play-working) while sharing her experiences with the not-so-lucky ones. Check out @patchinpixels’s feed to see what we’re talking about.

Devo confessar que Natal tá longe de estar entre minhas datas favoritas. Talvez a gente precise de um motivo pra reunir as pessoas que amamos, mas eu não consigo ver sentido naquela comilança toda, naquele consumismo ainda mais exagerado, naquele mundo de tradições que nem são nossas, naquela ostentação de comidas e bebidas com tanta gente lá fora sem nem ter o que comer, e tantas outras coisas que me questiono. Tampouco consigo ver muito sentido em comemorar loucamente a virada do ano. Por que as pessoas ficam tão eufóricas pra viver e agradecer em um dia tudo o que deveriam ter feito nos outros 364 dias do ano?!
No entanto, uma coisa legal dessas datas é que elas nos fazem pensar muito sobre a vida e sobre nossos comportamentos, e a árdua missão depois disso é manter esse espírito pro resto do ano. E o mais importante de tudo e que muitas vezes esquecemos: AGRADECER! ?? . De uns anos pra cá, eu venho criado o hábito de agradecer SEMPRE. Eu vivo uma vida que a maioria considera um sonho sim, é fato, mas mesmo nos momentos difíceis, nos momentos de solidão e nos momentos em que eu preciso encarar de cabeça erguida as consequências das minhas próprias escolhas… eu AGRADEÇO. Agradeço com todo coração por ter a sorte de perceber que tudo na vida acontece por um motivo, por um aprendizado que precisamos ter e que um dia nos fará evoluir. . E no meio desses agradecimentos todos vem cada um de vocês na minha cabeça. É estranho mentalizar e emanar boas energias à tantas pessoas que eu sequer conheço pessoalmente, mas eu emano. Do mesmo jeito que vocês fazem comigo diariamente dando um tanto de sanidade pra essa loucura toda. 
Seria injusto chamar isso de sorte quando eu sei de todo meu suor pra cada conquista, mas às vezes é inevitável usar essa palavra pra justificar como eu conquistei tudo isso que vai muito além do que eu jamais pude imaginar um dia… que sorte eu tenho!!! E eu não tô falando de lugares não, estou falando de cada um de vocês que torna tudo isso possível e que muitas vezes são as melhores companhias que eu poderia ter.
. Fica aqui minha gratidão e meus desejos mais genuínos de felicidade e leveza à todos vocês, exatamente como deve ser! ❤️
