Every change starts with us
Here we are for a new restart. Happy 2022 to all to all!
The thought of entering a new year, still to be built, to be explored, to be lived, brings with it a load of fresh and renewed vitality! It encourages us to set new goals, dreams, aspirations. And to think big even for the little things of every day. Put yourself in your desk with a pen and paper, perhaps with a new diary, and reflect on what we would like to accomplish by daydreaming but keeping our feet firmly planted on the ground. Personally, I was looking forward to it. It revitalizes me to think about what I have not yet revealed of my potential and that thanks to these new dreams I can manifest! My curiosity tickles me and nourishes my nature as a tireless explorer.
At the end of each year and at the beginning of a new one, I realize that in the end what matters is always to nurture infinite hope, whatever our current situation, because that’s where happiness is contained. But hope in what? The starting point is always and only to believe in our infinite potential and in those of every person we meet. All of them, yes. Even those that we think are incapable or that have hurt us. Sometimes it is necessary to keep a very wide distance and time to be able to recognize them, other times it is necessary not to interact but here we are not talking about what to do but about but what our heart feels, the dimension where everything is created. And we talk about not allowing what has marked us to scratch our ability to believe in anything, to nourish trust in the human being. In fact, seeing beyond the surface and developing this kind of deeper and farsighted gaze leads us to develop the best part of ourselves and recognize the strengths that each person possesses rather than their weaknesses. From here, if you think about it, peace originates.
Nelson Mandela said: “The greatest wealth [in my country] is his people, more beautiful and authentic than the purest of diamonds.” (Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom: The Autobiography of Nelson Mandela, Little, Brown and Company, Boston, 1994, p. 542).
These are words that give power and strength to those who truly have the future in their hands. We.

Inspiration of the day: “The prosperity of a nation cannot be determined only by calculating the amount of GDP or its material wealth. Are the health and safety of citizens guaranteed? Do the lonely elderly, the disabled and the sick have the opportunity to live comfortably? Are single parents able to raise their children and work at the same time? Does the light of hope shine in the eyes of the boys and girls who have the future on their shoulders? Can small business owners and retailers work with joy and enthusiasm? Do ordinary people live with confidence? Only if the answer to all these questions is affirmative can a nation truly be considered prosperous ”.
