Oooh everyone loves “La Vita E’ Bella” don’t they?
And doesn’t everyone love “La Dolce Vita”?
What about “La Vita E’ Troppa”? The too-much life?
I just found myself writing this. That’s what I have. The too-much life. I wrote this:
Troppe cose. Troppi pensieri, troppe pretese su me stessa, troppe preoccupazioni, troppe delusioni, troppe speranze, troppo dolore.
E’ tutto troppo. Ecco perchè. Semplicemente.
Too many things. Too many thoughts, too many demands on myself, too many worries, too many disappointments, too many hopes, too much pain.
It’s all too much. That’s why. Simply put.
And yet, this is why I live in Italy. OHMYGOD I didn’t know that this dude had the same philosophy I learned here by instinct and years of experience.
GOD BLESS ITALY.
I wish I could translate this video for you, but I can’t. I can’t. It would be too lost in translation. But if you speak Italian, please, watch this, and understand why I chose to live here, and I choose to live here every day. I will explain it below though, after the video.
How did I find it? Simple. I just typed “sti cazzi” into the Youtube search engine. Perfection.
Just in case you don’t speak Italian and were wondering the premise, I will tell you this: He reads a magazine that lists a survey of the percentage of suicides per country, and discovers that Italy is at the bottom at just 7%. He asks why, and he answers. The reason is “who gives a fuck” a.k.a. “sti cazzi” which he claims, as I always have in my previous posts, that it’s one of the fundamental Italian approaches to life, and in turn, it makes life go on even amidst chaos and despair. It truly is a quite Zen way to live, and I am a wholehearted disciple.
