View from the skiing slopes on the Dolomites ⛷— Northern Italy.

I want to close up my 2019 and start the new year with the image of this beautiful pink sky that I’m staring at. Here, the view from the skiing slopes on the majestic Dolomites is breathtaking.

🌎✈️ Since the beginning of the year I took 54 flights, visited 15 countries and I don’t know exactly how many times I packed and unpacked my baggage. It’s weird: somehow, though I did not expect it exactly in this way, in 2019 I have started to pave the way toward the life I have always wanted to live.

It took me a long time to arrive at this point, which I still consider only the beginning. However, I can’t still fully visualize all the connections existing among the events and the tangled paths that I undertook to arrive here. In the last few years things have changed so fast. After New York, Vancouver and Los Angeles (not to mention a planned moving to Qatar) in 2019 I left once again Milan, my hometown, to embrace a new adventure in London.

My passport case & my suitcase — best travel companions.

Each passing year I try to add a few pieces to the puzzle of my life. I don’t know what the final picture will look like, though I can envision it somehow. The puzzle, has not been entirely unfolded yet: I am still waiting to complete it, without rush though.

  • I hope this 2020 brings me the courage to face new struggles. I hope it reminds me every day that I chose an unusual path, so love, career and success won’t come all together in the way I thought they would.
  • I hope 2020 makes me stronger: many people won’t understand what I do but, nevertheless, I have to keep going toward my direction for myself and fighting for my ideas.
  • I hope this new year reveals me the sense of all the times I felt lonely and miserable. Because, looking back at my younger self of a decade ago, at that teen curious girl who used to dream of traveling and living amazing experiences, today I’d say that sometimes it can be extremely hard, but eventually this crazy journey it’s totally worthy.

I’m greatful for all the experiences I have done in my life and the people I met so far: especially in 2019 I met brilliant and successful people who supported and encouraged me.

I’ve always felt like I don’t belong anywhere. I’ve wondered for a very long time whether I would ever find the right place for me, a place where I could grow my polymath soul. Eventually, 2019 made me realize that I’m building that place by my own.

I have in my heart big dreams and goals I want to achieve, and today is the perfect moment to start focusing on the woman I want to become in this new decade and what I want to accomplish by doing the things I love.

In doing so, I hope to find my way somehow, trusting the fact that everything I want will come at the right moment: I don’t need to rush. As John Steinbeck once wrote to his son:

«And don’t worry about losing. If it is right, it happens — The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.»

🌈 💫Welcome 2020, I can’t wait to see what you are cooking up for me.
