Recently I’ve noticed I am getting better at not getting so stressed about things I can’t control.

Things that you can’t control are the things you have no power upon, like destiny or situations created by other people. However a lack of time often leads to me having to weigh up what is important and what isn’t.

Today we all work, train, exercise, look after our families, do our best to look good, try to squeeze in some fun, the reality is we don’t have time to do it all. In order to live a bearable life, we need to have a clear idea what is important and let some things go.

I, for instance, have made peace with the fact that I can’t have tidy wardrobes! I don’t have time to fold my panties, I rather read a book. I don’t have time during the week to cook well, I rather go for a walk with Giulio.

I don’t have time to make pretty cards, I can buy some. For instance Papel & Co stationary is very pretty.

The idea is simple: quality paper, elegant color, different calligraphies that all look like flowers in the wind.
I love the green and ochre envelopes!
