About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

ABOUT ME

I am very friendly, easy going and very active. I am Italian and besides my native language I also speak English and Spanish. I love meeting new people. I am very curious and love going out.I like to explore...basicly everything in life. I am in love with life, even though its not always rose smelling and shinny moon.... I like to give, and gladly accept the gifts of life given to me.I love travelling, dancing, hiking, biking, mountainbiking, reading, KAYAKING, SAILING, SOFTBALL, modeling and photography, listening to pop music and COUNTRY music, going to happy hours, movies, ethnic dinners and... Italian restaurants of course! I love walking and talking, I am a good listener!
I have taught foreign languages in Boston (USA) for almost three years also in Ireland and Spain. I also studied and worked in the UK.
My friends says I am very caring, funny, sweet and kind.

PHILOSOPHY

Who feels SUPERIOR is INFERIOR- Raffaella Metallo

It is better to live your own life imperfectly, than living an imitation of someone else's life with perfection -Bhagavad Gita

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall -- think of it, ALWAYS! -Mahatma Gandhi

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. -Mark Twain

A friendship that stops existing was actually never there. -Raffaella Metallo

Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love. -Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Happy are those who dream 'dreams' and are ready to pay the price to make them come true ~ Leon J. Suenes

Try not to become a man of success but a man of value -Albert Einstein

Life is a journey so enjoy the ride! -Raffaella Metallo

Never say never in your life! -Raffaella Metallo

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limitated, imagination encircles the world -Albert Einstein

Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away -Hilary Cooper Look for the best in people and you will find it..... -Raffaella Metallo

Being kind is much more important than being right. For sometimes, what a person needs isn't a brilliant mind that speaks, but a patient heart that listens - Chikku George Thomas

When we wish and seek to help others, our attitude is more positive and relationships become easier. We are less afraid and have less anxiety. Otherwise we remain shy and hesitant, and feel the need to take a thousand precautions before we approach people. When our intentions are good, we have greater self-confidence and are stronger. This is how we learn to understand how precious and valuable kindness is -Dalai Lama
