Happy New Year

May 2016 be the best year ever to all of us!

Tonight we will say farewell to 2015. It was a good year and I am grateful for all people who contributed to make this year so special to me.

Thank you for all the lessons you taught me, thank you for all the wisdom you passed to me and for all the experiences you made possible to me. I am for sure wiser and richer thanks to you all.

My wishes for 2016 to you and to myself are borrowed from Jim Rohn.

Let us be in 2016 thoughtful, but not lazy; kind, but not weak; bold, but not bully; strong, but not rude; humble, but not timid; proud, but not arrogant; funny but not foolish.

Happy New Year!

Holidays? I am grateful for!

The holiday season is behind us and it is time to return to the normal daily routines. Therefore I would like to look back to last month to explore and enjoy it one more time.

We have been traveling a lot. We have visit France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany and Poland. We have seen beautiful places and we met incredible people. We had a great time together as a family, resting but also pushing ourselves to move more and to experience all the incredible places of culture and natural beauty.

It is quite interesting but the strongest feeling I have when I think about holidays is gratitude.

  • Gratitude for the fact that we can and want to be together as a family.
  • Gratitude for the fact that we can afford to explore different countries and different cultures.
  • Gratitude for the fact that we are able to enjoy all of it.

I am grateful for all the fantastic treasures that past generations and our Mother Nature created for us to visit and to enjoy. Some of the places left unforgettable impressions, like Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa or Valley of Temples in Agrigento, beautiful Cinque Terre, the majestic Etna or agile and hot Stromboli…

Isn’t it fantastic, that we have this privilege to experience and enjoy it all?

I am grateful for the possibility to slow down a bit. When I slow down I can suddenly notice beauty in daily small things that normally escape my attention. When I stopped on the side of the road to really experience the sunset or when I took my time to play ping-pong with my son, or when I slide down from the rock to the salty waters of Mediterranean and enjoyed a view of a Norman castle build on a dramatic rock…

It feels like magic and like a dream that is happening to me. I can remember different times. I can remember times when it was impossible for me to travel to France or to Italy. Not only because of the shortage of money but also because of borders and man created divisions. I was born on the wrong site of the Iron Curtain…

But I was always dreaming about exploring. About exploring different cultures, about visiting strange places, about witnessing miracles of nature and soaking up all the experiences and knowledge to make me a better person.

Now I can do it more than I was able to imagine, more than I allowed myself to dream about…

And that is why the strongest feeling after my holidays is gratitude.

Time flies when you have fun!

When I started my adventure with Goodchange I didn’t know it will grow to 10.000 Facebook likes so quickly.

Now we are there so I decided to put together a small booklet as a gift to all of you who decided to like the Goodchange page on Facebook and get involved in it.

I want to be frank with you. I do what I do because I like it! It is a great way for me to think about life and to check my ideas with ideas of others. On the way I found out that there are quite a lot of people who are enjoying the things I am doing on Goodchange.

Now I have an extra motivation. The extra motivation is you!

As long as there is a chance to learn something new I intend to do what I started at Goodchange.

If you will be inspired, motivated or helped in any way, this is the biggest reward I could ever imagine.

Thank you for liking Goodchange! I like you back 🙂

What you can find in the booklet I call “What I learned in quotes”?

You can find some quotes about a “Good change”, “Good life”, “Good goals” and “Happiness”. But I added also your choices: “Most liked” and “Most seen”.

And as this booklet is also a little bit for me 🙂 you can find a few of “My favorites” quotes.

It is free and all you need to do is to click on the link to open the pdf version of 10.000 Facebook likes!

I really hope you will enjoy it!
