What a tough year it was! When I revisit my last year‘s resolutions for the upcoming year – they seem so irrelevant. Just like most of us I could not predict that the brightest highlight of the year will be something quite unimaginable to the XXI century person.
I hoped for new opportunities, ambitious goals, good clients but not the survival plan. Plain, bald survival plan. Sure the beginning of the new year is always tough, but somehow in the second quarter usually you can breath more easily. But not this time. Not last year.
The first wave of pandemia had overwhelmed all of us. It seemed that we were almost drowning, just holding by a thread... Then in the middle of the year we finally got to the shore. We stopped, reflected on the first wave – embraced all the lessons we learned, thanked all the people that helped and hoped for a better day.
However, it‘s just like when you survive an earthquake there are aftershocks. And sometimes they are more harsh than the earthquake itself. Now we are experiencing just that. The sad thing is that there may be a lot of them. And after they finally stop we have to recover. We have to pull ourselves together and move on. And we will.
So this time my New Year’s resolution was quite simple – to survive, to be able to pull myself together and move on. Without any expectations, just enjoying every single day and being grateful for every single person beside me.
Happy New Year! 🎉

I try it again I lost some text about homeless women her name is Indigo Sun she has a degree in psychology and worked about 22 years in it. Now she is sleeping outside in the dark and cold... She do not have a passport neither nor dokuments, she is Italien from southern part of where I come from so she even dose not have the right to stay in this country what a big problem it is...can anybody do something?...
No, its her mistake and she is the one who thinks about it wrong I tell you she is running away from something which haunting her till the very end... A realy tricky thing is the mind it is even if a proper person who is dedicated to some bigger level has this brakedown to overcome, so all is a fars to me nothing changed after a year and still I am beging her to function right and she will lie to me in to my face so sometimes I get angry and tell her the truth about her, terrible job but social and for her the only chance to be sometimes normal and under control....
Next time it will be the same again with her nobody will change this person into good however I still take care of her and try my best doing a good job.... Radical changes occurse to human living beings terrible mistakes happening and nobody will be there what a misery to the human race...
Most of my teenage years I used to be super shy with no self confidence at all. I remember having a mindset: “I will not start a conversation myself and only start speaking when someone asks me something or starts talking with me”
I had a terrible fixed mindset and thought I will always be like this.
Looking back at what helped me to crawl out of this hole, there were many things, but what layed the foundation was books on self development.
I still remember so vividly how I went to the library and borrowed my first book which was called “Self-confidence”.
After finishing that one book, I gained a whole new perspective and realized “wow, I can actually learn how to be better at social situations”.
Ever since reading that first book, I have been an avid reader, always trying to improve myself on every aspect of life, whether it is social, mental, financial, physical - you name it. There is just so much wisdom in books that can improve your life.
So my idea for you - if you have a teenage relative, friend, siblings etc. Gift them a book on personal development - my recommendation: D. Carnegie - “How to win friends and influence people”.
Best case scenario is that you may change their life forever, worst case scenario is that they won’t read it :)
