When life starts
When I wanted to change myself and to change the world by things I know, fate hindered. It was never easy to chase dreams with your feet being chained while walking barefoot at the rough road with a dubious way to start. With determination and perseverance that I have at the start, I underestimated things that would follow along my way. I never knew that after realizing that life is really not that easy especially when we're crawling, a fusillade of doubts, worries and pain would follow.
I started to ask if did I really start or did I just continue dreaming without even starting? Even if it's hard, I would still try over and over again. If life is a game and I am a player, I know I sucked but I won't regret being spawned again.
Things will start to change little by little. I know deep in us, something is about to happen. And that's a start!
I wish you endless dreams and the furious desire to make some of them come true.
I wish you to love what you need to love and forget what you need to forget.
I wish you passions, I wish you silences. I wish you bird songs on waking up and children's laughter.
I wish you to respect the differences of others, because the merit and value of each one is often to be discovered. I wish you to resist the bogging down, the indifference and the negative virtues of our times.
Finally, I wish you never to give up research, adventure, life, love, because life is a magnificent adventure and no reasonable person should give it up without fighting a hard battle.
Above all, I wish you to be you, proud and happy, because happiness is our true destiny.

Choose your hobbies, your friends, the values on which to base your life. Living well is learning not to respond to all the requests, to prioritize your preferences. The exercise of reason allows a coherence of our life according to the values and goals that we pursue. We choose to satisfy one pleasure or give up another because we give meaning to our life - in both senses of the word: we give it both direction ...
