This blog comes from the desire and the will to share experiences that I have lived and that I think are worth listening to. Not because they are particularly extraordinary, but for the way they have been interpreted, for the optimism that has come from them and, if some are a bit more serious, others are absurd.
In the last years, life has made me face situations that have deeply changed the way I look at things. These experiences have taught me that the best thing you can do when you don’t want to get out of bed is to stay in bed and cry, but only for a while, a few hours or a day at most, just time to let your mind rest, but then you must go to the bathroom, put on some make-up if you want to, dress as you feel beautiful and go out. You can go wherever you want, behind the house, to the sea, to the mountains. I have some favourite places, but the important thing is that you have the chance to sit down and let your soul breathe. Because these are the times when you can meet unknown people who share their experiences with you, enriching you and leaving you a little more strength and optimism. These are the times when you fall deeply in love with yourself, when you know exactly who you are and what you want, when, despite all the mess, you find yourself and have the bravery to take the craziest and most beautiful decisions of your life. These are the times when you decide that you will move on, in one way or another. And if you decide you will, you are already halfway there.
So in this blog, I want to tell a little bit about my life and my thoughts. I want to do it for that creativity that maybe I’ve never expressed enough, because I love writing and because I’ve been lucky enough to meet people and to live experiences that are worth telling to. I will try to do it in the most genuine way I know, by keeping a spontaneous language, because that’s how I think to be. Even the photos I will publish will be only the ones taken by me (even the one on the cover), and if some articles will be just black words on a white screen, it’s because maybe I haven’t felt the need to add anything else. And if you enjoyed what I write, if it got you a laugh for some absurd situations, it helped you during a hard time, or it made you appreciate even more the time you’re going through, then that would be great!
I will tell you about adventures that have lasted for years, as well as brief meetings in the train; about journeys around the world, as well as those within myself; about my life-long dreams and how I am trying to realize them day by day. I will tell things from my point of view, how they are but, above all, how I have experienced them, because it is not so important what happens to you, but how you take on it. It will be a sort of adventure diary, a bit like when I used to write my holiday diaries as a child. Now, I feel like telling everyday adventures, because they can be incredible if you take on them with the right amount of optimism and curiosity!
PS: I have decided to leave the blog’s name in Italian because it sounds horrible in English. Literally it means “Arrythmias of life”, with the meaning “ups and downs of life”. Sorry for that!
