I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don’t mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don’t mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing, but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding. - Anaïs Nin

📝 Sharonacita’s suggestions / tips / #consejos for carefree and #authentic living, 31 / 40: 🗺 Travel alone! Maybe not every trip, but at least one time in your life, take a solo vacation, and I can pretty much guarantee you that it will be an experience of a lifetime! You will learn so much about yourself, you will probably meet more people, you will appreciate your solitude in a totally different way, you will be more aware of the things / people / sounds / smells around you, and you will come away from your trip more confident, more accomplished, and more self-aware!

Go to whatever museum you want or skip the museums altogether. Wake up at the butt-crack of dawn to get a head start on the day or just sleep in til noon. Walk 5 kilometres to reach your destination on the sunny side of the road or take an expensive Uber to the other side of the country because you woke up feeling a bit under-the-weather (that’s this foto’s story). Do want you want, when you want, in the way you want! Be liberated. Carefree. Open. Yes, travelling alone has it’s perils too, but that’s not what this post is about 😅 👣#travelalone #solotravel #wordstoliveby #40daysto40 👣

“Chorei porque não era mais uma criança com a fé cega de criança. Chorei porque não podia mais acreditar e adoro acreditar. Chorei porque daqui em diante chorarei menos. Chorei porque perdi a minha dor e ainda não estou acostumada com a ausência dela.”

Henry dit: "je suis déprimé par l'inertie du monde." Il ne peut obtenir la réaction qu'il veut. Nous bavardions tout en nous promenant sur les quais. Il y avait du brouillard et nous avions l'impression d'y être perdus. Cela paraissait la représentation exterièure de mon état d'esprit.
Anaïs Nin, journal 1934-39.

“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” ― Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

“One must not be afraid. One must know how to float as words do, without roots and without watering cans. One must know how to navigate without latitudes and longitudes and without motor. Without drugs and without burdens. One must learn to breathe like a wind-measuring instrument. The cord must be made of sand, the anchor of aurora borealis.” -Anaïs Nin

“the value of the personal relationship to all things is that it creates intimacy, and intimacy created understanding, and understanding creates love.” —Anaïs Nin 🌸 (yes to love)

What a beautiful weekend I got to spend in LA with some beautiful, vulnerable artists. No more walls 💕 #anaisnin
"La gente che trovo irresistibile è quella in cui non è stato ucciso il bambino. Le qualità di apertura, fiducia, curiosità, tenerezza, impazienza, entusiasmo e altre indefinibili, vengono dal bambino che c'è in noi e sono fonte di fascino". #feellinglikeachild #anaisnin #giotto #decameron #pasolini #silvana #mangano #childhood #tenderness #trustness #unpatient #entusiasm #fascinating

'Had I not created my whole world, I would certainly have died in other people's.'

I can't choose my battles; but I can choose the battles I put in my history books. I can keep my own counsel and not be letting down humanity. I can decide to both say this and nothing, and not be ashamed by either. I can ignore something and know it's nothing to do with fear, just priorities. I can choose which parts of the world I invest in. I can guard my life. Fiercely. And I can because I've thought about it very hard, and I think selfishness can be just as necessary as sacrifice. I can choose what to learn not because I've an ignorant mind, but because I've a scarred and strong heart.

The world has been a bit of a bully for our stories these last weeks. Let's go gentle. Make our own worlds enchanting...

Her beauty drowned me.
As I sat in front of her I felt that I would do anything mad for her, anything she asked of me.
