Looking inwards and around

OK, things do seem to be a little bleak at the moment for me, what with baby being ill often and this leading to not enough time to do as much as I would like, but it’s easy to be negative. There are lots of positive things going on in my life and living in Italy is one of them. Another good thing is that I have got my own, albeit very small, company and it is going well and would seem to have a bright future. I always wanted to work for myself and in doing so I have fulfilled an old ambition. Not only that, but I’d always wanted to learn another language and experience living in another country, and these are another Two fulfilled ambitions. I have a job which I like very much, which is more than could be said about my old work back in the UK.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

I love technology and I’ve got loads of techy gadgets to play with, so things are not too bad on that front. The woman who I finally hooked up with is very down to earth and keeps me on the straight and narrow, plus she is good fun and it feels good to have her around. Then there is my son, who is wonderful, even if at times he can be a worry. He does provide many magical moments and will continue to do so, I’m sure. So, things are not too bad at all on balance.

Sometimes, it helps to focus on the positive stuff when you are in a bit of a black period, even if this does seem to be difficult at times. Upon reflection, I have not reflected enough.
