Death washes away the bullshit. Don’t you dare waste your time.

If you aren’t working right now in your best idea or in favor of your dreams then you are doing everything wrong.

In my everyday’s rush in trying to get more and only the best things, and noticing the chaotic world we live in, I notice and feel even more the need to DREAM. We need something to sustain and keep our bases strong, something that must keep us STRUGGLING.

Wake up everyday, work, lunch, work, dinner, sleep, go out with the family on the weekends. Loop through it. Repeat. It’s a pattern. Almost everyone is happy and satisfied with that. But even this repeating cycle has a meaning (even although it’s completely abstract): happiness. But where does this take us? The same cycle for 10, 20, 50 years?

I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME / MONEY / SUPPORT / [INSERT ANY OTHER EXCUSE HERE]

Here’s a tip: if you are in a place that you want to leave or if you are in a bad moment, adopt that as a reason to fight for a dream or for something you can do best: this way you will be able to leave this bad or repeating situation.

If you are still waiting for the “right moment”, sorry to say but it won’t come.

THE TIME IS NOW.

Turn your dreams into your reason to live and bring them into your everyday’s activities. This good thing will spread to everyone around you, and then, they will start supporting and taking part of what you do and think. And everything will look even bigger.

Life is so fragile and at the same time, so short. I ask you, right now, what are you waiting for? Why aren’t you being everything you can be right now? †

One more time: If you aren’t working right now in your best idea or in favor of your dreams then you are doing everything wrong.
