So that's been my second half of December in parts - I promise the rest of my Italy diaries will be up I've not had any good time to get it all done in one go so it's moving quite slowly, I'll post them under my travel series once done :)
Thought of the day: Priorities, stick to them and don't get sidetracked. Put aside things you have no ability to impact.
Mental strength is like muscle strength -- no one has an unlimited supply. So why waste your power on things you can't control? For some people, it's politics. For others, it's family. For others, it's global warming. Whatever it is, you care, and you want others to care.
Fine. Do what you can do: Vote. Lend a listening ear. Recycle, and reduce your carbon footprint. Do what you can do. Be your own change--but don't try to make everyone else change. (They won't.)
In God we trust,
