12 things I learned in 2009

2009 was a difficult year, especially for me and those living in L’Aquila. The earthquake was a life-changing experience, my view and perception of things was altered by the course of events following April 6th and – here’s what I’ll be taking with me into 2010:

  • Nothing is impossible
  • The impossible happens every day – it can happen to you too
  • Everyday routines are enemies of the quality of life: we do too many things because we’re used to doing them, not because we need to
  • Our lives are full of useless things that clutter every corner of our households. 80% of my things are still in my house struck by the earthquake and I don’t miss them
  • Stay away from people who waste your time, it’s too precious
  • Live you life one step at a time. Looking into the horizon is important but watching where you put your feet will keep you from falling
  • Do good deeds and forget, do bad things and think …
  • Stay away from people you don’t get along with – they ruin your existence and you don’t know how long you’re gonna exist
  • Focus on the positive aspects of things and see what there is to be learned: being negative brings about pessimism which in turn generates pessimism
  • Be grateful for the good times life offers
  • Bare your sufferings with dignity, talk about them with friends and family
  • Good is everywhere but evil makes headlines

Be strong, courageous, and determined in 2010 – all the best.
