Portofino, Italy

When I started to be dissatisfied with the direction my life was going, I decided that one day I would leave my native country.
I always like to emphasize my privileges. Not ignoring them is a way to value the opportunities I have had and to respect those who have not. Thanks to my parents I had access to food, health, education and basic comforts all my life. This structure makes the realization of my dreams more palpable than for those who don't have the basics.

When I was 18 and left my country, I was forced to face myself and really realize who I am inside. See me in the mirror. And often, it wasn’t a very pleasant practice. Know that you are sufficiently capable of being autonomous to make your decisions. Whether to change careers or to change the political view, for example.

It is curious to realize that when traveling around you meet people of different ages, nationalities, social class, religions and philosophies of life, as well as a plethora of stories that would undoubtedly make great books. These are lessons that life offers that will need to reflect and evaluate, extremely despised actions. Because, as a rule, to question is to subvert the natural order.

Far from being a perfect lifestyle or map to happiness, it is knowing that there are trees and rivers. Stability and uncertainties. Know that what you plant today will reap tomorrow. That life takes you a position every day: what do you think is the best for your life?

The secret of happiness is freedom, the secret of freedom is courage. Freedom sounds where opinions collide. It means the opportunity to be what we never thought we would be, to be responsible and have absolute control of oneself. When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege of being free.

The issue is not in the friend, the car, the house, the partner... but in yourself, in your attitude towards them. Every relationship conflict is an opportunity to study and correct yourself. Before complaining about others, study yourself and you will see that the problem is in you.
The cause of a bad relationship is not in the other, but in your own attitude.
If you live convinced that you have all the rights and the cause of your dissatisfaction is in others, you become dependent believing that they are the only reason for your frustration. But if you found your existence in the responsibility and generosity of giving, you regain control over yourself. Because giving depends only on you; receiving puts you at the mercy of the others.

The ego is the soul’s worst enemy and also the biggest enemy of the humanity. An egotist is not a person who thinks too much of himself; is a person who thinks too little of other people.
.
For some people is difficult to applaud, acknowledge, praise, agree, cheer from the heart and wish a sincere "congratulations". It's hard to like and comment on a beautiful photo or an interesting post. It’s hard for some people to see someone happy, and very hard to be happy for the others. The ego doesn’t permit and the jealousy deep inside keeps them blind. Someone’s progress only bothers the accommodating one, and someone’s happiness only bothers the unfortunate ones.
.
Never let anyone’s ego kill your vibe. Stay positive and don’t feed negative energy. When misunderstandings grow, cut your ego. Ego judges and punishes. Love forgives and heals. Less ego, more excellence. Less talk, more do. Less rude, more polite. Less fear, more wins.

The whole life is a succession of dreams. You can call me crazy, and I must be very proud then, for those who call themselves lucid cannot realize that dreams come from the divine, and the mistakes from ourselves. We live in an unreal world, where we are immersed in ego, fear, envy, feelings of shame, guilt, and not being worthy of love or abundance.

We are not only less reasonable and less decent in our dreams... We are also more inteligent, wiser and capable of better judgment when we are asleep than when we are awake. Dreaming made me travel the world and discover new places and new things.

I still believe in the child who grew up playing, laughing, crying, suffering, but still dreaming about things that came true later. I always see further, with the eyes of my soul, because I am a free spirit and I am aware that my roots are in another part of the world, part of my soul is there too and I can do everything I dream.

If you don’t take control over the direction your life is heading, you could end up anywhere. And “anywhere” might not end up being a good place. Developing a habit can be hard. Often, people try something for a week or so, feel uncomfortable, and give it up. This can even be things they know will help them get what they want most.

Exercise is a celebration of what your body can do. Not a punishment for what you ate. Fitness is like a relationship: You can’t cheat and expect it to work.

While the logical side of your mind knows you should stick to a workout regimen to see results, the emotional side convinces you that skipping one more day won’t hurt anything. No matter who you are and what goals you have planned for yourself — each and every one of us has to get up off work for the things we want. But the hardest part about working toward any goal is starting.
It’s easy to avoid doing things you’re not good at. No one wants to face the fact that they may have to work at something for a while before it becomes perfect. It can be embarrassing. But when you think about quitting, think ​about why you started.
Ultimately, when you finally do get into the habit of working out, you feel amazing. That’s the feeling that makes it all better in the end — when you feel healthy, inside and out.

People usually says: A clean car is a happy car. But human happiness is a disposition of mind and not a condition of circumstance.
The mind is the source of all suffering, and it is also the source of all happiness.
Love myself I do. Not everything, but I love the good as well as the bad. I love my background, my crazy lifestyle, and I love my hard discipline. I love my freedom of speech and the way my eyes get dark when I'm tired. I love that I have learned to trust people with my heart, even if it will get broken. I am proud of everything that I am and will become.

The mind has exactly the same power as the hands washing the car, not merely to grasp the world, but to change it. Use your hands and wash the hell out of your car. Use your mind and wash the hell out of your life.

Freedom is one of the most important factors in life. Real self-expression and speech and thought exists in some parts of the world, but in others it does not. Surely this is a rather limited freedom, involving a great deal of conflict, wars and violence. Inner freedom is something entirely different. When there is deep, fundamental feeling, which has its roots not in the idea of freedom but in the reality of freedom, then that feeling covers all movement, all the endeavours of the humanity. Without this, life will always be an activity within the limited circle of time and conflict.

There is no such thing as individual freedom, but only freedom. The word individual in its very meaning implies indivisible, not an entity opposed to the collective. But we have made a concept of individuality with its peculiar characteristics, tendencies and so on which are the response of conditioning, and we oppose it to the collective. This conditioning is part of the culture-economic, social and so on-in which the mind is educated. Freedom lies beyond this conditioning, not within the field of consciousness with the content that makes up consciousness.

The responsibility of a conditioned mind is irresponsibility, which can be perceived in the present cultures of society, whether of the East or of the West. This irresponsibility is shown in education, in social injustice, in national divisions with different ideologies leading to competition, wars, starvation, affluence and poverty. Without responsibility, there is no freedom. Freedom is love, which in its very nature is responsible to the flower by the roadside, and to the neighbour whether the neighbour is next door or a thousand miles away.

Compassion is the very essence of freedom.

We nurture our creativity when we release our inner child. The most sophisticated people I know - inside they are all children.
It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. Children are not only innocent and curious but also optimistic and joyful and essentially happy. They are, in short, everything adults wish they could be.

The greatest legacy one can pass on to one's children is not money or other material things accumulated in one's life, but rather a legacy of character and faith. At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive environment and involvement of parents.

We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today. Let us liberate ourselves from any form of control. Let us focus at the inner drum, where the rhythm aligns with that of our heart. Children are great imitators. So let’s give them something great to imitate.

Why should we worry about what others think of us, do we have more confidence in their opinions than we do our own?

When your opinion of yourself goes up then you’ll stop trying to get so much validation and attention from other people. You become less needy and find an inner stability and strength even when your world might be negative or uncertain at times.

The increasing self-esteem and self-love also makes you feel more deserving of good things in life and so you’ll self-sabotage less and go after what you deep down want with more motivation and focus than ever before.

You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world. When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life. Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life, but define yourself.

Our brain is an extremely evolved computer and learns new facts through training and repetition. Behaviors learned and repeated over the years, even if harmful, have already been incorporated into our repertoire and into our brain and they are part of us. So the brain will expect them to happen constantly. If these things stop happening for some reason, the brain will try to remind us.

If we eat candy every day at 11 AM, in the following days at this same time we will feel like eating candy. If we watch television shortly before bed, we will miss it if we don’t watch TV someday. If we spend most of our day on social media, we will have a hard time failing to do so. If we want to lose weight we will need at least 6 months to a year to maintain our weight, otherwise our body will return to the weight we had.

Changing our beliefs and behaviors requires time and it’s not easy. Time to practice and also to get used to the changes in our body and our life.

We know that contemporary society preaches immediacy: fast food, loving relationships that start and end overnight, medicines and drugs that promise instant change and numb our feelings, the voice of our soul. However, although increasingly advanced technologies are emerging, we are still human and we have very unique characteristics. In an attempt to anesthetize and robotize themselves, many end up in depression. Others eager to be perfect developing anxiety and stress disorders.
Every form of addiction is bad and the unfortunate thing is that good habits are easier to give up than bad ones. But nothing is impossible. One of the paths to happiness is the meeting of peace. Peace with ourselves, with the world and with others. To find it requires patience, perseverance and hope, and without it nothing else will make any sense.

Free will and tolerance summarize the principle of equality. Prejudice in between the lines is dangerous, and in homeopathic doses, can reinforces the stigmas and deepens the chasms between people. It reveals ignorance and feeds the evilness.

We are responsible for the construction of the ideal of civility wherever we are. It is the awareness of the value of each person that raises the human race and what we have the best to tell one another.

I define a 'good person' as somebody who is fully conscious of their own limitations. They respect and don’t judge something they don’t know, they know their strengths, but they also know their 'shadow' - they know their weaknesses. In other words, they understand that there is no good without bad. Good and evil are really one, but we have broken them up in our consciousness. We polarize them.

Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness.

Everyone's got something that they've held onto from their childhood or from a past relationship, someone who's told you what you are, and it's leaving all that behind and living a happy life and realizing that a lot of that is inside you - really uncovering that. The story - those themes - are heavy themes that everyone can connect to.

When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.

Usually adults who are unable to make emotional connections with the one they chose to be intimate with are frozen in time, unable to allow themselves to love for fear that the loved one will abandon them.
If the people who said they loved you abused or neglected you, it can feel terrifying to love again. Commitment or love with a family feeling can be scarier still. The child in you still equates commitment with being locked into a situation where there’s no escape. So as you get closer, you may become paralyzed by all your old defenses & memories.

Do not be afraid to be the person who loves the most. Don’t be afraid of love or the course it will take. There is no certainty in life. Choose love first and choose love last and it will give you more than you ever give it.

Time is too slow for those who wait
Too fast for the fearful
Too long for those who complain
Too short for partyers
But for those who love, time is eternal.

Everyone's got something that they've held onto from their childhood or from a past relationship, someone who's told you what you are, and it's leaving all that behind and living a happy life and realizing that a lot of that is inside you - really uncovering that. The story - those themes - are heavy themes that everyone can connect to.

When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.

Close to my 18th birthday, I told my parents I would leave the country to study and follow my dreams. “Let her go, we raise the kids for the world”- my father said. “I trust my daughter and I know she will never let me down.” - my mother said. They didn’t know, but at that moment they bought my fight, defended my dream. They said things that marked my life, my personality and my base. My nature was fortified in that moment.

I left my native country when I was 18 years old and my family base was extremely important to face the world by myself. Yes, I had a chance to drug myself, but I never tried because my mother said I would not. Yes, some men offered me a lot of money to have sex and still do, but I never did because I had a family who taught me values.
Yes, I had the opportunity to do many things wrong. Why I didn’t? Because my parents trusted me even before I knew what trust means. They defended me and fought for me and nothing and no one was worth more than they were.

Since I left my country I always came back to visit them. My father passed away 6 years ago. But he did a great job and was an amazing man, leaving a beautiful story and legacy for me and my brother.

Life has changed so much for most of us. With the advancement of technology, changing cultural norms, new priorities, and new forms of communication fueled by the Internet, it's natural to wonder what the importance of the family is. Is it a dying institution that has no place in modern life? Certainly not! The family is just as relevant as it ever was, and no matter how much life changes in the future, it will probably continue to be needed in one form or another.

As modern life puts the pressure squeeze on all of us, the benefits of living in a family are more important than ever. The challenges we encounter these days become easier to handle when we don't have to face them alone.

The definition of family has evolved, but it’s importance remains.

I'm sure something has changed inside of me. I can’t explain exactly what it is, but I feel something in me is different. It scares me a little bit because I don’t know exactly what this change will do to me.
Sometimes it's hard to believe that time has passed so quickly. And it took me so long to realize the things of life.
I have learned to value each person the way they are. I also learned that passion usually does not last forever and everybody makes mistakes. I have learned to never undo the opportunities life gave to me, the happiness rarely knocks at the door and we always need to be prepared and aware of it, so we can listen and follow our happinesses without waste so much time.
I also learned that nothing happens by chance.
Today I want to be sure I can say tomorrow I was happy one day with someone. And I did the right choice. And that it was worth the wait and everything I lived.
I want to refuse all those things that never led me to anything and be able to go in search of my true happiness. To be able to free myself from my ghosts, to throw everything up and tell the world that life is much more colorful and interesting than it presents me.

It takes time for us to feel ready to let go of stories, objects, habits, and people that have broken. Like a broken glass, we insist on sticking the pieces together, imagining that we can keep the piece intact, as it was before. We cling to the fragments and forget that good things happen to those who release spaces, who resize the past and give a chance to the future.
It's not about revenge. But sometimes we have to stop directing your affection and your attention to who is not reciprocal with us. Stop sending messages to those who only appear when they are interested, stop insisting on a meeting for a coffee with whom always makes an excuse, keep away from anyone who tries to diminish you, stop having expectations after long silences and prolonged absences, learn to protect yourself and value yourself, understanding that not always liking someone very much, it's a prerequisite for him to like you too.
We were educated to act with tolerance and forgiveness, but that does not mean allowing some people to subtract us, or that our lives are suspended for a gesture of reciprocity that will never occur. From time to time you have to wake up and realize that you've been paddling the boat alone, and it's time to stop.
Life needs cleaning. And that includes closing some doors and ending some stories. Not everything fits in our new stage of life, and we have to be brave to give up that which one day had meant and today it doesn’t have anymore.

The work for the unification of the humanity is urgent, but not rushed. One assertion seems to contradict the other. But it is not so. It is urgent because it defines the goal that we should aim at; but not rushed because it is not granted to us to violate anyone’s conscience.
Let those inclined toward the sciences to cultivate them in their dignity; those who devote themselves to philosophy to ennoble its postulates; and those who consecrate themselves to religion to turn divine its aspirations.
Let us preserve the purpose of uniting, approaching, and understanding one another. Our postulates ought to be lived and made known within a strict line of dignity and nobility. Yet, let our feelings vibrate in unison, reflecting the sentiments of friends who want to help one another, of brothers and sisters who do not allow themselves to advance forward, or the ones who did not have the strength to carry on.
Let us join hands and be helpful to one another; let us forget conflicting opinions to remember the concepts of similitude, trusting in time, which have the answer for everything.

We have been blessed with the privileges to live life. May we live to the fullness. Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life. I still miss those I loved who are no longer with me but I find I am grateful for having loved them. The gratitude has finally conquered the loss.
Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes to simply be human… At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate.
