yes … I know. A while I am not writing here.
The reason is always the same: time and inspiration.
But today I would like to share with you what is resounding inside me so loudly at the moment.
I am sure each of you is struggling with something. Personally it is months that I am struggling with my job. To find one first after I left my previous ones, the last longer was end of June, and then little things, and now one already renewed twice but still not sure about how it will go on and if it will. My contract expires on the 14th of October, rental to pay, expenses … so many … my car …
Then you know I have my novel in the book shops, still struggling to be known and read. Yes, it is not enough to have published a book, the most difficult part of it is after. Marketing, events, promotions … And I do not have money to invest in it. We are at the second edition but still I remain pretty much unknown everywhere.
I would need money to correct and arrange my English translation of the novel, but I do not have the money necessary to do it.
So for now just published in Italy in Italian. I need to find a literary agent for abroad to find a publisher outiside Italy for its English version …
So my struggles are these, leaving on the side my personal life which is actually quite much tough at the moment as well.
So all of us, we find ourselves from time to time like stuck in moments of life where directions need to be taken and decisions as well about next steps. And we are a kind of lost thinking of where we will end up in our future.
Well, I would like to say that it is very human. Even now that I am almost 40 years old, I still do not know where exactly I am moving to. What will be my next life steps and decisions.
It is very human to feel lost and sometimes even broken at the same time, but we all must remember that we are here to give a meaning to our existence, and we are not just alive to survive but to live, fully and making our life worth living it with goals to achieve and dreams to follow, never giving up.
I think fear of failure is the worst judge we might have. But we must try. Take risks, maybe calculated ones, but still jump out from our comfort zone.
And we have to stop caring about other people’s judgments. Society is getting worst and worst in this. I think people are just jealous and envy of what you got.
It is not easy not to let bad energy touch you inside, but we must ignore the anger empty hearted people throw at us. We have to focus on the good in every situation and spread good energy even when it is rare or when we are given negativity as a gift.
So this post is a best of luck to everyone like me who is struggling in life.
Stop asking for approval! Just start living your life the way you want it. It is yours and nobody has the right to judge you. With honesty and a pure heart, good intentions toward everyone, and the goal to improve ourselves everyday.
If we start walking the distance will be shorter from our dream goal.
But we must start moving. Little steps. Days fly away and still we do nothing. We cannot expect anything to change if we go on doing the same things every day.
So let’s start move on. Little steps forward in the direction of building what we dream of. Doing what our eyes are sparkling for.
Passion is the only energy that we need to put in all we do. Let us live fully every single second of our existence, a time that will never come back, moments that are just now or never.
Just life to be lived fully now. And we do not have to delay, to say tomorrow. We start today to be fully ourselves with no regrets. Our life, just ours. And we will realize that happiness is the peace we have inside when we have no more conflicts between what we do and what we feel.
Let us be true to ourselves first. And let us be, as Ghandi was saying, the change we would like to see in the world.
Only in the name of the truth we can live an authentic life.
And yes, we can.
Take care of yourself all of you.
Move away negativity and negative people from your life and soul.
Be in peace inside you first.
And let’s move on.
Best of luck to all of you, and stop worrying. Life will give you the answers you need. Just have faith.
