Continuous change......trying to understand my beeing here on this planet
I think I am an open minded person.I am living alone for some years now, but i often meet friends and I often traveled to other countries, as also my past job gave me the possibility of low fare tickets.
I believe I can understand other peoples hearts and also worries.I am honest, and I expect the same from others.
It´s great to talk and discuss different issues with people, and I love to talk in Italian and English...Talking in another language is wonderful, as it gives you the key to understand more deeply another culture.
In June 2012 i became self-employed and now i work as a massage therapist in Vienna. I like my new profession, and i am curious to see how it will proceeed!
HON IN MYO - from NOW on.
Although I am interested a lot in Buddhism, I am open to all Philosophies.I believe that whatever we do should make ourselves and people around us - happy.(I am still working on this;-)
Everything happens for a certain reason, and as long as we are here we are able to learn.
