365 days of my life

Day 355 – New beginnings

D

Exactly three years ago I was moving into this new house to start a new life. Pregnant, unpacking bags and trying desperately not to plan too much ahead, I took every breath looking around and smiling because of this new place. Today we looked back at those times and instead of unpacking we packed and threw away a lot of bad memories. But, that’s not today’s story, today I’m...

Day 354 – Did I say devil?

D

A pact with the devil I said yesterday. A pact with the devil. Carrying stones heavier than my own weight I said and preparing to sign a new contract with the devil. And I picked up the pen and left all the weight down and just when I was about to lean in and sign my name with firey letters… I stopped. I took a deep breath and wanted to have just one second for myself. A second without any...

Day 353 – Pact with the devil

D

You know how sometimes you feel you are in hell and can’t get out? You keep playing the same memory in your head, over and over again, the memory that shows you how you shook the devil’s hand and told him you are going to be his for a while. Of course you didn’t know he was the devil at first, but soon enough he showed you exactly where you were and who you are dealing with. So...

Day 352 – It’s back

D

Today was suppose to be a special day. Ephia and I were supposed to have fun building and painting in the morning and after her nap to go visit a birthday girl, my mom,  who was expecting us with cake and goodies. Nothing of the above happened. My friend the pain, the pain that is present in these writings maybe more often than it should, the pain that I describe here, here, here and...

Day 351 – Sleepless night

D

They all say that a good night sleep does miracles. They say that if you go to bed before the rouster sings you will wake up fresh and rested before the rooster’s song in the morning. What if you go to bed after the rooster’s morning song? What if you ignored both of his signals and against all odds you are fresh and well rested? What if you worked all night and defide all the rules...

Day 349 – Unfair day

D

Today started out with me feeling lost and betrayed. Betrayed by myself, by my feelings and by the compromises I have to constantly make. And I hate compromises. Is there anyone else outhere who still doesn’t know that this was a overall horrible year? You know what’s worst than having a horrible year? Having an amazing one in the same time. How can that be possible you ask? Sounds...

Day 348 – Crazy day

D

I spent my entire day reflecting about everything: my life, my choices, my friends, my family, my world. I looked at my daughter chasing bubbles all morning thinking I could look at her playing forever. I watched her hand going into mine when we took the tram home. I felt her kiss coming down my cheek after I gave her a snack. Yes, I could do all this forever. I came home and looked at the piles...

Day 347 – Adventures

D

Life is an adventure. I have spent my entire life trying to seek answers and discover new things about myself and the people around me. I will probably do that for the rest of my life and you know what, it’s incredible. Making each challenge into a quest and walking on a path that never ends is truely an adventure and a blessing. When I was a kid, I used to make my grandparents tell me the...

Day 346 – Some thoughts

D

I have a beautiful family. A wonderful daughter who never ceases to amaze me and an amazing husband who always reminds me what true love really is. They are my world and my reason to never stop doing the things I love. We sometimes, if not always, judge the package without caring about the inside. It’s in our human nature to settle for what we see, maybe out of fear or maybe because we...

Day 345 – Field trip

D

After a beautiful morning with my daughter I got to work on one of my projects while taking a field trip. Ok, it wasn’t really work, it was more fun, but let’s go with work, because it sounds so much better. I drove outside of Florence and in between talking and listening I also caught a small glimpse of the Tuscan landscape. Beautiful as usual, never ceasing to make me love it more...
