Hope

As some of you may know it already, I’ve recently founded an online magazine, Good Enough Darling, dedicated to people who are having a burn-out. My goal is to give tips, a bit of info and most of all, a feeling of hope and lightness when you read it. As a guide for myself but also in the perspective of documenting myself for the magazine, I bought The Gifts of Imperfection from Brené Brown . Yesterday, I read the Guidepost 3 dedicated to “resilience” and asRead more

It was a long time ago that I felt so much emotion, such an intense feeling insideRead more

Beauty is everywhere

A couple of days ago, I bought a piece of gorgonzola at my local supermarket and what was my surprise when, yesterday, I opened the package and found it completely coated with moisture. At first I was truly disappointed specially because it was supposed to stay “fresh” until the end of the week but my second thought was, wow, what a beauty! I don’t know if you have already observed food in the process of rotting but it is trulyRead more
