I like / Me gusta

I like people who thrive; people who don’t need to be pushed or told what to do. They know what needs to be done and they do it.

People who cultivate their dreams until those dreams take over their own reality.

I like people who have the ability to accept the consequences of their own actions, people who risk certainty in exchange of uncertainty to chase a dream, people who sometimes allow themselves to get away from sensible advice, leaving solutions in hands of God.

I like people who are fair with both their peers and themselves, people who are thankful for each new day and for the good things existing in their lives, people who live every hour with a good spirit, giving the best of themselves, thankful for being alive, for being able to give away smiles and offer a helping hand without expecting anything in return.

I like people who are able to criticise me, in a constructive way and face to face, without hurting me.

People who are tactful.

I like people who possess a sense of justice.

Those are who I call my friends.

I like people who know the importance of joy and spread it around. People who teach us how to live our life with good sense of humour by telling jokes.

People who never stop being spirited.

I like people whose energy is contagious.

I like honest and frank people, who are able to disagree with anyone’s decisions using reasonable arguments.

I like people who are faithful and tenacious, who don’t give up when it comes to reaching their goals and ideas.

I like people with criteria, who aren’t ashamed of admitting it when they make a mistake or there is something they don’t know. People who, by accepting their mistakes, make an effort to avoid making them again.

People who fight against all odds.

I like people who look for solutions.

I like people who think and meditate internally. People who value their peers not because of a social stereotype or the way they look. People who neither judge nor allow others to judge them.

I like people who have an attractive personality.

I like people who are able to understand that the biggest mistake of humankind is to try to take out of their mind what is still in their hearts.

Sensitivity, courage, solidarity, kindness, respect, peace, values, joy, humility, faith, tact, confidence, hope, appreciation, wisdom, dreams, regret, self-esteem and love for others are all key to call themselves PEOPLE.

With people like that, I am committed to anything for the rest of my life, because I feel well rewarded just by having them.

Me gusta la gente que vibra, que no hay que empujarla, que no hay que decirle que haga las cosas, sino que sabe lo que hay que hacer y que lo hace.

La gente que cultiva sus sueños hasta que esos sueños se apoderan de su propia realidad.

Me gusta la gente con capacidad para asumir las consecuencias de sus acciones, la gente que arriesga lo cierto por lo incierto para ir detrás de un sueño, quien se permite huir de los consejos sensatos dejando las soluciones en manos de nuestro padre Dios.

Me gusta la gente que es justa con su gente y consigo misma, la gente que agradece el nuevo día, las cosas buenas que existen en su vida, que vive cada hora con buen ánimo dando lo mejor de sí, agradecido de estar vivo, de poder regalar sonrisas, de ofrecer sus manos y ayudar generosamente sin esperar nada a cambio.

Me gusta la gente capaz de criticarme constructivamente y de frente, pero sin lastimarme ni herirme.

La gente que tiene tacto.

Me gusta la gente que posee sentido de la justicia.

A estos los llamo mis amigos.

Me gusta la gente que sabe la importancia de la alegría y la predica. La gente que mediante bromas nos enseña a concebir la vida con humor.

La gente que nunca deja de ser aniñada.

Me gusta la gente que con su energía, contagia.

Me gusta la gente sincera y franca, capaz de oponerse con argumentos razonables a las decisiones de cualquiera.

Me gusta la gente fiel y persistente, que no desfallece cuando de alcanzar objetivos e ideas se trata.

Me gusta la gente de criterio, la que no se avergüenza en reconocer que se equivocó o que no sabe algo. La gente que, al aceptar sus errores, se esfuerza genuinamente por no volver a cometerlos.

La gente que lucha contra adversidades.

Me gusta la gente que busca soluciones.

Me gusta la gente que piensa y medita internamente. La gente que valora a sus semejantes no por un estereotipo social ni cómo lucen. La gente que no juzga ni deja que otros juzguen.

Me gusta la gente que tiene personalidad.

Me gusta la gente capaz de entender que el mayor error del ser humano, es intentar sacarse de la cabeza aquello que no sale del corazón.

La sensibilidad, el coraje, la solidaridad, la bondad, el respeto, la tranquilidad, los valores, la alegría, la humildad, la fe, la felicidad, el tacto, la confianza, la esperanza, el agradecimiento, la sabiduría, los sueños, el arrepentimiento y el amor para los demás y propio son cosas fundamentales para llamarse GENTE.

Con gente como ésa, me comprometo para lo que sea por el resto de mi vida, ya que por tenerlos junto a mí, me doy por bien retribuido.”
