The world needs dreamers

The world needs dreamers

What has always struck me about dreamers is the way they understand life. Normal people see everything in black or white because they reason according to established and established patterns: either do the right thing or do the wrong thing.Dreamers, on the other hand, live in shades: where others see a fork in the road, they see thousands of roads leading in all possible and imaginable directions.…

The real places that inspired the Disney movies

"Once upon a time, long ago, in a kingdom far away..." They all begin more or less like this the fairy tales of our childhood, and immediately our head began to wander with the imagination, among mysterious enchanted forests, magical castles and exotic places reachable only with the power of imagination.

Instagram is hiding Photoshopped photos

Instagram is hiding Photoshopped photos

We use Photoshop to erase that imperfection on the face that ruins our picture and to slim the legs that we left too much uncovered and that we don't like in photos and take away some years (and some wrinkles). But maybe now it's not a good idea anymore. After the initial enthusiasm - which lasted 10 years, since the foundation of Instagram in 2010 - the social network of the image par excellence…

Ikigai: Find your life's purpose

"Ikigai" is a Japanese term that cannot be translated into Italian but, since "Iki" means "existence" and "gai" is used to indicate "purpose", we can say that it means "the purpose of life".Both from an abstract and a practical point of view, ikigai means answering questions: what is your motivation when you get up in the morning? Why do you do what you do every single day? How are you valuing you…

Not in his mind, his actions and ideal…
