Watch your thoughts

Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny.

This saying by Lao Tze expresses how quality of our thoughts shapes our lives. Bear it in mind, it’s so true.

Hello 2021

I wish all of us for this new year what 2020 has taught us: to take care of ourselves, love ourselves and others, slow down. Let’s choose to overcome all difficulties by facing them, and we will be happy and victorious. ☀️💪🔥💫🥂

I wish you all a magic new year

Peaceful moments

‘When you stop chasing the wrong things, you give the right things a chance to catch you.’

I am still enjoying these beautiful days of freedom. Yesterday the Campania region became “orange zone” for a short moment. So I could manage to go to a bookshop and a couple of shops for some shopping. Despite the strange period, life in Italy calms me down, and I like it, it suits me much more (when everything goes smoothly). I thought about it yesterday while I was paying for my purchases at the bookstore.

Working out in a beautiful place ❤️

I wish you all a new year of beautiful emotions, passions and boundless loves. 💫

5 things that will make your life easier at once

Dear all, I found these wise words by chance today surfing on the internet, and I want to jot them down here for you and for myself too. They are by Naywa Zebian, and are such simple and true instructions to follow.

Taking care of yourself is productive

1. It’s no one’s responsibility to make you happy. Stop giving up your power by expecting someone or something to change your life.

2. No one owes you anything. You are the leader of your own life. Work for what you want. That make you the most powerful person you can be.

3. Falling for the potential of who someone could be instead of who they actually are will cause you grave pain and disappointment. The sooner you let go, the faster you’ll heal.

4. Not everyone thinks like you. What makes sense to you doesn’t necessarily make sense to someone else. Communicate.

5. Love does not hurt. Stop convincing yourself that you’d rather be in pain with someone than be in pain without them.

More in touch with nature and with ourselves

Merry Christmas from the heart to those who stop by

Hi guys, I hope you are having the best of these days. As for me, I’ m trying to stay as much as possible with my family and also with myself. I’ve been recharging the batteries, clarifying my ideas a little, and trying to restart dreaming like when I was a child. I’ve been re-reading Oscar Wilde lately. How beautiful.

Naples, December 2020

Feel Neapolitan sun on your face

Here everything flows. I returned to Italy just in time since they have recently suspended flights with the United Kingdom due to the worsening of the virus situation (with a new English variant of the covid). In fact, when we landed at Capodichino airport, in addition to the self-certification, no one checked on the certificate or swabs (as happened instead at Rome’s Ciampino airport last November). Luckily I have the certificate of my very expensive swab made in Cambridge just before leaving.

With my beloved twin in my beloved Naples ❤️

For the rest, finally a little vacation from work. We’ll get soon to the heart of the celebrations with my close family despite the strange period. I’m challenging myself: I am on a detox diet until Christmas eve, workout every day, and daimoku and gongyo daily. it’s working. 🙂 💪 Never give up, guys, always revolution.

This pink sky says it all

Hello guys, this is the sky that greeted me while I was reaching Italy a few days ago. My favorite color, while the thought that has accompanied me for so long finally materialized…💕🌸 and then as I finally feel that I am going further, I wish everyone a lot of pink thoughts.

And the Christmas presents?

Cambridge, December 2020

Lately I have been so busy with work and preparations for the departure that it is finally approaching, that I have not given much space to the gift-shopping (in a shop close to my place I just searched – in vain – for a book about English children’s songs for my niece. ) The need not to forget important things and wanting to avoid crowded areas and strangers as much as possible made me give it up completely. Besides, all I need more than ever this Christmas is just my family. I already know, however, that once in Naples I will find some packages for the closest family. And how are you doing? What kind of gifts have you or will you be giving for this special December 25th?

Cambridge, November/ December 2020

The energy of the last days is incredible. I never stop, I always go on, while Cambridge is getting colder (as it usually does in this period). It also looks pretty though. 🙂 🍂🍁🎄❄️

Lockdown life

Cambridge, lockdown 2020. In this period, to get away from stress and thoughts, the things I do most often are: drink coffee and look out the window overlooking the garden. The important thing is to keep “going”, to continue what you set out to do and always have your own goals to look at. Let’s hold on 🔥 👌
