“And then I realized that with a smile you can conquer the world, I was young but I had lot of energy and I was willing to risk everything, I wanted to do something, I wanted to work hard and EARN myself a spot! And I knew that as long as I had a reason to smile I could keep on going.. “
extract from my book #MYDREAMJOB so happy to see you guys quoting part of my story in my comments that makes me mooore than happy! Love you guys !
Keep believing and never stop trying!
It all started like a dream.. I dreamed of doing what I loved most, and being able to make a living off it,
I dreamed to have a beautiful family to love with all my heart just like my parents did with me,
I dreamed of building a workplace where people could feel free to use their creativity and actually be happy while working ,
I dreamed of meeting the most inspiring people in the world such as nobel prizes, singers, scientists, actors, athletes and more,
I dreamed of doing all these things in A LIFETIME.. but inexplicably, all those dreams and more have happened in the last 5years.
Sometimes, I struggle to understand how I could be so blessed to live the life I’m living... All I know is that God gave me the grace to have experienced a life BEYOND my wildest dreams already, and I know that the biggest gift I ever received from Him is the joy of becoming a husband and a father, because I honestly would’ve never thought I’d be capable
of feeling such a pure and strong love in my life for another human being.
And now, as we await another child, on my first #fathersday, I’m realizing how fortunate I am for what I have.
So I guess this is just the beginning, because I'm not done jet! I still have a lot of cards to play and I promise you that I’ll keep dreaming higher and higher!
Most importantly, I promise that I’ll pray for all of you, and that I could be a role model worthy of being followed, a good friend and companion in the next years, and I pray that God will be centre of my strength. If there’s one thing I’ve learnt in life, it’s that only in Him is there joy that lasts, and only with Him is there peace that endures.
