    40 reasons to introspect


    As the road runs under the rolling of the wheels, it is easy to connect to a blue sky today, remembering of the nexus between what we see and what we don't. As I celebrate 40 years of age, in a day like this, I' m prone to think of the life I have lived so far, of the memories that became my world and of the people who helped me become, who I'm.
    As I drive away from these Alps- where I was born- I m ready to experience the Pacific Ocean, in search of new nuances to call "life".

    We are made of the same particles that astronauts have found on the moon, so we are somehow, nothing more than stardust. My thought goes today to all those people who crossed path with me at one point in time and determined with their action, my actions. The same actions I m grateful for, as I introspect in these 40 years of godsend opportunities, to make a difference.

    40 years behind my back and some X years ahead of me. There won't be a moment in which I won't be thankful for what I got and where I won't be compelled to who I will be. I introspect on my character today, because it is it that will determine my future.
