Life is constantly changing and I change as well

I started to keep an (almost) daily blog when I was living in Sydney. For my convenience I would refer to it as “Vince”.

Vince has been my friend and travel-mate for more than a year. It helped me to face hard times and describe my emotions in a more logical way. I remember that it was fun receiving email and messages from people who followed me. It was my interior voice to express and describe my “new life” in Australia.

All the posts in Vince’s blog were in Italian and I’m still considering if it would be a good idea to translate them and put them back live. They are parts of me and they reflected my way of thinking during that time when I was changing so much.

But most important of all, Vince made me realize an important thing, the real meaning of the word “change”. Since then I started looking at change as something natural which i don’t have to fight with. I have a book that says: “”. How true is it.

Today I woke up still not believing how many things have changed in my life, starting from the place where I live to the people that I lost or got to know during these last 6 years since I left Italy.

Vince finally convinced me that is better to enjoy and living the moment, right now, because today I’m a different person than yesterday and the one that will be tomorrow.

p.s Vince comes from Vincent Gallo, a famous actor who I love.

Time is Now

Time is Now - Alessandro Morbidelli

In October 2016 my father died and since then I can’t stop thinking about how short our life on this planet is. He was sick and I knew that he would die soon, but I didn’t expect it to happen so quickly. He was only 67 years old.

This loss has left me with a mixed feeling of emptiness and solitude – a feeling that I’ve never experienced before. I feel like my connection with this world and this life is broken, lost. He’s gone somewhere and I’m not sure if I will be able to see him again.

So what now? What should I learn from this dramatic (but also natural) event of my life? One thought, for sure, makes me reflect more than others: “Sooner or later I’ll be dead as well”.

The time we live on this planet is limited, it goes fast and we should take advantage of it as much as we can. Otherwise life becomes empty and useless. Do you have a dream? Try to do everything to make it happen. You don’t have a dream or a passion? Find it, look for it, because it will give you a reason for living. You don’t how? It all starts with your mind.

Stop doing things you don’t like, especially if you are doing them every day. That would already be a good a start. There is always a different path you can take, don’t get trapped in rational thinking – it will just demotivate you.

Don’t worry, I’m still working on it too. I still have to make my dream come true and the reason why I’m writing this post is actually to remind myself about it rather than to motivate anyone else. I’m not a motivator and I don’t have anything to teach you. I’m just a person who has realised that if you do something with passion, you know why your life here and now is important.

The important thing is to start and the time is now.
