Take the initiative

"... life is good and it is worth to be brave and take the chances (even  if all is not perfect). Live well, live brave and take it all".

Oh, so very well said, Ernesto! (Alea iacta est!! :-P)

I said that? hehe I guess I did...
Remains me of a song, "Oleo de una mujer con sombrero" (oil of a woman with hat) From Silvio Rodriguez that says:
La cobardía es asunto
De los hombres, no de los amantes.
Los amores cobardes no llegan a amores,
Ni a historias, se quedan allí.
Ni el recuerdo los puede salvar,
Ni el mejor orador conjugar.

That would mean more less this:

Cowardice is a matter
of men, not of lovers.
Coward loves don't get to love,
Nor to stories, they stay there.
No even memory can save them,
Nor the best orator inflect/narrate.

You can hear it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmNNz53UymA and remember Love has nothing to do with fear, justice or reason. Love is related to joy, caring, giving and sometims hadness, but mostly JOY, and it is worth it.

Διαβλέπω κάτι σαν αισιοδοξία ή έμπνευση. Μπράβο, πάντα τέτοια! Αυτό το κατασκεύασμα στη φωτό που μοιάζει με διαπλεκόμενα βελάκια τι ακριβώς είναι;

Ω, πάντα, πάντα!! ;-)
Είναι από τα κύρια χαρακτηριστικά μας αυτά!
Το κατασκεύασμα, είναι πτυσόμμενο χριστουγεννιάτικο δεντράκι, από τον Ernesto!
