The Little Princess

I looove agendas, they’re like, my thing. And I looove The Little Prince, it’s my favorite book in the world! And my friend Mary just gave me an agenda of The Little Prince! How cool is that? It’s just adorable, and I love it even more because this is such a thoughtful present, she’s a doll. Here’s a pic of it:


Did you know I have three tattoos? Well I do, and one of them’s an illustration from this book. It’s the image of the Little Prince flying away from his planet with the help of a flock of birds. This image is very significant for me because the Little Prince had to leave home to realize his planet, and specially the flower he took care of in it, were beautiful and special, but he could only see this after a long, far away journey that took him to many different planets inhabited with different characters that (as I see it) were deluded in different ways. The last planet he visited was Earth and it’s there he found, with the aid of a fox, that his flower was just a simple rose and that there were a lot of them; yet his flower was special because it was his, and he loved it.

There’s a lot more to read into on the book, but I’ll leave that to you. It’s such a short yet deep and meaningful book, and every single time I’ve read it I’ve found a new meaning on it. I really recommend it! Plus, it’s a reading that’s not gonna take you longer than a couple of hours 🙂

Back to where I was, this story means a lot to me because it reminds me I’m on a healing journey that’s taking me to many different, sometimes deluded or obsessive, places, but in the end I’m only trying to return home with tools (the Little Prince came back with a drawing of a sheep in a box made for him by a Pilot, the narrator of the story) that aid me in taking good care of it. It’s the promise I made myself to get to the other side of this depression, to fight it and to find my home, whatever that may be.

Anyways, here’s the image I was talking about:

the little prince - birds

I’m gonna post the image of my tattoo, which is on my back, on my next post, but I’m gonna put a password on it just to prevent random people seeing it on their screens. If you’d like the password you’re absolutely welcomed to ask for it!

  1. what a great gift! it’s beautiful. i too have a tattoo of the little prince, it’s always lovely to read about other people whose lives were moved by the story too. 🙂

    • i’d never met anyone who had one too! it’s an amazing book isn’t it? it does feel good knowing that there are people who understand how you feel.
      can i ask what your tat is or is it too much? (i totally understand if you don’t wish to share this). xoxo

      • it’s just him standing on his planet, looking up at stars. i always planned on getting the rose tattooed next to him but it hasn’t happened yet. i’m sure that’s symbolic in some way, haha.

        • don’t know if you noticed but i also referred to it as a planet, now i’m ashamed lol. i love the image you chose! i thought about getting that one for some time, but then decided to get the one where he’s leaving 🙂

  2. It’s a beautiful agenda and I also love the story of The Little Prince. Haven’t reread it in a long time though. Should definitely get back to it…
    Can you send me the password? xx
