Fall in love gently. Remind yourself that you are the longest relationship of your life. Remind yourself that you are a child of this universe and that you are worthy of happiness. Fall in love with the way you feel things deeply. The color of someone’s laughter. The texture of someone’s kindness. The nostalgia of going back to places that caused you so much pleasure and pain. You are an old soul trapped in a body that’s slowly, slowly decaying. Fall in love with your failures. The events that shaped you into becoming who you are today. Embrace your shortcomings for they serve as a lesson in your formless memory. Forgive yourself for everything that is causing you so much pain. It is a brutal process, and you must get through it. Self-hate can only generate more worry in your life. Let it go. You don’t have to carry it forever. Fall in love with your body. Romanticize it. The freckles on your face are constellations. The heart-shaped birthmark right behind your hips. The positive aura of your gummy smile. The way that your body is working hard to keep you alive like electricity lighting up a whole city on a cloudless night. Fall in love with your existence. The little things that make you who you are. The poetry that you write. The instrument that you play. The way you put your makeup on as you face another challenging day. These little things that make you who you are come from the way you express your being. Fall in love with yourself until you finally feel like home. - tag someone you love ♥️ quote by Juansen Dizon

Italian friends! Ho sempre avuto questa passione, un po’ una mania, per l’espressione su carta, che si è sviluppata ancora prima della fotografia. Ho riempito centinaia di diari e quadernetti con i miei pensieri, e i più fedeli di voi ricorderanno sicuramente le centinaia di foto postate di disegni e pensieri in riva al mare👼🏼 Al liceo avevo un Agenda BEYOU, la cui caratteristica principale è la completa libertà di espressione che offre, permettendo di personalizzarla interamente partendo dalla copertina. Ne ho ricevuta una qualche giorno fa e l’ho già resa mia. ♥️🦋 #beyou19 #beyouitalia @beyouitalia

When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. Your time is your life. That’s why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. - tag someone you love ♥️ quote by rick warren. Spotted two old birds cuddling on the shore of San Diego, I usually don’t take pictures of strangers, but I thought I could make an exception for this time... 🌅

please take pictures of your friends. take pictures of your friends when they laugh, and when they are happy. And when they are sad, too. Take pictures of them partying, studying, eating, or sleeping in your bed. Take pictures of their new hair color, or new shoes, take pictures of them while they roll their first cigarette, and take pictures of their last, when they quit smoking. take pictures of your friends just being themselves. Tell them they are beautiful all the time you think it. They may dislike these pictures now. but one day, very very far from this year, they will be thankful. - tag someone you love ♥️ One last night in Los Angeles. Thank you for all the magic

I have noticed that if you look carefully at people’s eyes the first five seconds they look at you, truth of their feelings will shine through for just an instant before it flickers away. - tag someone you love 🌊

Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.

I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way they handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. - tag someone you love ♥️ qt by maya angelou.

humans are so cute, when we say goodbye we put our arms around each other and to show we love someone we bring them flowers. we say hello by holding each other’s hand, and sometimes tiny little dewdrops form in our eyes. for pleasure we listen to arrangements of sounds, press our lips together, smoke dried leaves, get drunk off of old fruits. we’re all just little animals, falling in love and having breakfast beneath billions of stars. - tag someone you love ♥️ ragazzi! Seguite @kaplanitalia perché domani caricherò un bel po’ di storie di questa avventura in America dal loro account 🇺🇸 at Santa Monica Beach

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. - tag someone you love ♥️ sto partendo con @kaplanitalia per un’avventura negli Stati Uniti, la mia prima volta nel nuovo mondo.. Sia per migliorare il mio inglese sia per scattare qualche foto ai tramonti delle spiagge della città degli angeli. 👼🏼 L’ansia è tanta ma so che ne varrà la pena! 🇺🇸🌵 #kaplanexperience

TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY! 🎂 I want to use this little space to thank all of you, for supporting me directly or indirectly. You are the reason I do what I love and I am grateful for that. Photography has been the joy.. The joy of my life. It’s been already five years in this journey, and more than ever I feel the urge to remember you all to protect your friends, love your family, the one you have been assigned at birth or the one you’ve chosen, love yourself and never forget that life is beautiful. Truly it is. With its magic and illusions. I am so grateful for the privileges and opportunities I’ve been granted, and to be one of the lucky ones to be alive. I love you all, deeply. Here’s a collection of candids of my friends, my life, everything that I love. Yours truly, forever, Paolo. 🌞 Grazie - Thank you - Tusind Tak - danke -Спасибо - 감사합니다 🙏🏻

You don’t need another human being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your soul, but cracks to put their love into, is the most calming thing in this world. - quote by @emery_allen

I’ve been struggling a lot the past few months to find motivation and inspiration, and there’s still a lot of work to do. I always have this feeling I am not in the right place.. Like my true home is somewhere else. Could you guys suggest me below some cool account I could check out? Also, if you’d like to show me some of your work/pictures tag me in your posts and I’d be honored to check them out. Love always, P. 🌞
