What if it is all a test? 🤔
To see whether you got your prorities set right? To see what you’re sad about when having to cancel all plans? To see if you can appreciate what you got? To see if you’re flexible making new plans, rearranging your schedules, building new paths, being creative? 🤔
We can learn so much these days ⚠️ Not only about the world but about ourselves too 😉, about your closes ones whether think about you too these days, about your friends if they really care for you 😘
Have you learned something new about yourself? I, for example, started to notice that I really answer to problems/anxiety with work 💪. I put more and more on myself trying to achieve as much as I can, to prove that I’m good enough, to make myself proud, to feel calm once something is complete. This is they way I cope with stress – I work even more. That’s just me but I’ll work on that 😉😅
This is the time to observe, take notes and draw conclusions 📝 This is the time to learn ⚠️. So that once it’s all over we can build new ‘normal’ with the notes we took. We can use our lessons, our mistakes to set new goals, build new paths ⚠️
And I’m not talking about you and me only. I’m talking about all of us as one Earth-society 🌍. We should all keep some of the actions we do now forever. Starting from taking more care abour our health and appreciating when we’re healthy 🙏, from paying more attention to hygiene and washing our hands as often as we can 👏, from keeping healthy distance from one another in a shop, not standing on somebody’s toes 😅, let’s keep this personal space 😉, to helping one another 🤝, to spreading good deeds, to caring about strangers, not only about ourselves! 🙏
We can build such a beautiful new world out of it with new, better priorities, better standards and better rules. 🤩
A world where we can all appreciate what we got, care about others and are willing to help a stranger. 🙏
This is the time to build a new reality. ⚠️

Nature has had enough and said STOP. It revolted and made us all STOP too 🚫
You know how we’ve been all running through life? Never having enough time for our inner peace, for our families, for simple things such as reading or doing puzzles?
Now it’s the time 🕛
Nature made us stop. It made us all stay at home and appreciate what we have 🙏. This is the time to rebuild your relationships, to go into your inner self and work on your mindset, to set hectic life aside and focus on what’s most important – health and family. 🙏
It has been around 2 months that we’re fighting with this damn coronavirus but there already has been an effect on the nature! 🌱
China’s air is clean again as plenty people stayed home and stopped driving their cars!
Water in Venice’s canals is getting clearer and clearer and I hear you can actually see fish swimming there now and even swans returned! 🐟
Sardinia coast got so clean and calm that doplhins came back to the area where people scared them away some time ago! 🐬
We need to be patient and it will all come back to normality soon.
But what is also beautiful about those time is solidarity. The amount of help that we all give each other is amazing ❤ We are all in this together afterall.
Italians singing on balonies made my heart mealt. China coming to Europe to help us all and share what they already learned about this virus made my heart grow ❤
Please let this help and being a community of one not end once the virus goes away. Let’s keep helping each other 🙏
So let’s all keep doing what we’re doing. If you want to help and don’t know how find out if you have any hospitals near you and ask what doctors need, they often need food, towels or simple things as paper and pens. Let’s help them! They are our heroes 💪
You could also ask your elder neighbours or people who are simply scared to enter a supermarket if they need anything and do grocery shopping for them.
But if you can – stay home. That’s the best what you can do now 😉
Love! 😘 📸 pic taken in Italy in 2017
How to be happy?
We need to make this world a better place. We need to do it ASAP.
Instead of complaining on other people, talking behind their backs lets help each other, lets be good one to another.
This doesn’t have to be anything big. I try to do a small good deed every day and I encourage you to do the same. As I said, it doesn’t have to be big. You can simply help a stranger pick something up when he/she drops it on the street, you can open the door for a mother with a stroller when she’s struggling to enter a shop, you can help a young woman carry a heavy suitcase up the stairs, walk an elder man through the street, help someone find the right place when you see he/she is lost or just simply smile at others.
This is really simple and it costs you nothing yet can make a big dfference.
It doesn’t have to be only strangers on the street too. You can (and you should) help your friends or family in need too. You know that your friend is moving houses? Go and help him/her pack. Your mom is preparing a dinner for a whole family? Ask if you can set the table or make a salad at least. Your friend lost his job? Ask your colleagues around if there is a job for him where you work, try to help him find it. Your friend practices for an exam or a job interview? Go over to her and simply listen to what she has prepared. Let her practice on you.
There is over 1700 of you here, lets say even just a tiny bit of 10% of you joins me on this mission and we’ll have 170 good deeds every day, 5100 good actions every month and 61200 amazing acts of help every year. That’s a lot!
Will you join me?
Do you help strangers on the streets?

Do you know what’s one of the main things that make you HAPPY? HELPING OTHERS. I love helping others. I love seeing people smile when I manage to help them out. It makes your heart grow. It makes your heart warm. It doesn’t have to be anything big. You can do plenty of small things that can make someone’s day better. You can stop the bus when you see someone’s running for it. You can pick something up and help a stranger who dropped it. You can walk an elder through the street. Do you have a spare dollar? Buy a chocolate Santa for a homeless man. I’m sure it will make him smile. Or you can easily just smile to strangers, that will make them feel better as well.
Are you a giver or a receiver? I’ve always loved giving gifts more than getting them. It’s about that smile that you see in a person when you give it to him/her. That’s the best gift for me.
Of course If you are a giver and want to do something bigger than walking an elder or catching a bus for someone there are plenty ways to help out in a bigger scale. You can give out money to charities, obviously. You can buy some food or blankets and give it to shelters. You don’t even have to buy anything, if you have some old blankets that are still good but you don’t need it don’t throw it away, always think of someone who might need it. Do you have empty boxes? Give it to animals’ shelters, they always need it. Did you clean up your wardrobe and have plenty of clothes that you don’t wear anymore? Give it to shelters. Same with toys – give it to child care. I am sure that you have plenty of things that you find useless that might be a great gift for someone else.
Why you should also help others? It’s not only about seeing people’s smiles and making them grateful. It’s about Karma too. I don’t know if you believe in Karma or any high power but „the more you give, the more you receive” rule always works. It may not be proven. It may not be scientific but it works, believe me. Even if it’s not about high power/Karma, by helping othesr you show people that they can count on you and once you do that you’ll have people to count on when you need help. It’s all about the circle of giving and receiving. Let’s be a friendly community that helps each other. Lets reach out a helping hand to others.
