“Peace” is a priceless feeling . I thought of this:
P = Patience. For only time can reveal the results of decisions made.
E = Empathy. What would it be like to feel how others feel?
A = Admitting to oneself that life is too short not to be happy
C = Compassion.
E = Envy and greed for more will only lead to unhappiness. The ego is satisfied but not the spirit.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and joyful Sunday!

A day = 24 hours
A day = 1440 minutes
A day = 86400 seconds
If I spend 44 hours/week at work this would mean:
44 hours = 2640 minutes
44 hours = 158400 seconds
I have 168 hours a week so:
168 hours – 44 (work) = 124 hours
124 hours – 49 (sleep) = 75 hours
75 hours – 65 (family and friends) = 10 hours
10 hours … Physical activity + Read a book + Meditation
Thinking about the value of every day, every minute and every second of my life in a week helps me to understand that if I organize my time I could really do a lot of things. Life is a journey and time is a precious and vital component to make it worthwhile.
Hello everyone!!! Since we are still waiting here in Italy to say goodbye to the year 2017, I just wanted to share with you my thoughts about events of this year who brought me 3 very special gifts:
One is the gift of family – to be able to see the bond in spite of distance and being unique individuals
Second is the gift of being able to share joy – I realize that instead of drinking alone a bottle of wine, I can share it with others and make them feel that they matter. But this is not only for wine but for any other thing that I have, I did find a special joy knowing that I am not the only one who is happy. I cannot change the world but better changing something than nothing!
Third is the gift wisdom – I mean, being more patient, more understanding and more loving. Oh, I did realize that the art of loving is not that easy and not impossible to learn.
Wishing everyone a joyful and prosperous Year 2018!!!
Year 2017 brought me very special gifts.. Every year I prepare a fruit basket with 13 fruits as a family tradition to wish the family good luck for the coming year. This year’s fruit basket is like this:
Pineapple, mango, papaya,Lychees, apples, kiwi, Cantaloupe, passion fruit, avocado, grapes, pomegranates, mandarin, pears ☺️
I thought it was easier to buy Basil plants rather than reproducing new plants out of a mother plant…
A mother Basil plant – I cut the top part (10 cm) – put them in a transparent glass jar for a week and….Voila! New Basil plants!
I was able to reproduce new plants + saved money and I was able to share/give Basil plants to my friends
The free gifts of nature…
I made this card especially for the ones I love most…
I think love must be shared and given every day. ❤️❤️❤️
The third candle of Advent…praying for Peace…
