My Sunday ‘To Be’ List


I want “to be” amazed and surprised every day, so my sense of wonder never fades.

I want “to be” less impatient, with myself and others.

I want “to be” the person who will always find something nice to say to others; even a thank you suffices.

I want to remember “to be” kind.

I want “to be” able to relax, and be a better mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt and friend.

I want “to be” healthy and able to work out (almost) every day of my life.

I want “to be” a best-selling author.

I want “to be” in Italy before the end of 2021.

I want “to be” in love with life and music until the day I die.
