Is this the right time to start?
Although I opened my account on Medium quite a long time ago, I’ve decided that now it could be the right time to start using it. There could be many reasons to do that and maybe there always been (or there is no reason at all...)
But now I feel something urgent about making some order in my thoughts, regarding both my job, my life and what I see around me. Maybe this is connected to the fact that I’m approaching my forties, a period of life in which many people feel the urgency to start something new: in their career, in their relationships, in their passions, in their physical shape…
For sure I have many urgencies and many needs. And actually I have much more questions than answers, though I’m surrounded by people pretending to get (or to be) at the top of [whatever] before their 30s.
“In the middle (or the Medium?!) of the journey of our life…”, hopefully, not obviously, the middle, I find myself in such a need: sharing thoughts and questions. Attempts and hypotheses. As Eddie Vedder sings “I’m a lucky man to count on both hand the ones I love”. And actually I can say that I’ve much more than ten good friends and companions on my journey. Nonetheless I’m eager to share my views and questions and possibly find passionate people to discuss with.
Nothing more, nothing less. I don’t know the pace I’ll have in writing here. Time is such a scarce resource (and I’m not that good in writing). But I think it’s time to take the first step and, finally, begin, in accordance with a quote I love from the Italian writer Cesare Pavese: “The only joy in the world is to begin. It is good to be alive because living is beginning, always, every moment.”
Disclaimer: I’ll try to write always in English, even though I’m Italian and sometimes, depending on the post subject or on the time I have to write it, I may decide to use my mother tongue
