Happy New Year, everyone! I will be writing mostly in English on my website, because not only do I find the English language to be the most accessible code to the vast majority of people, but it also allows me to express my thoughts and feelings in an easier way. I do not exclude the possibility to sometimes write in Spanish, Italian and French in the near future. It will mostly depend on my mood, I often swing back and forth with languages. Bear with me!
If English is not your native language, maybe this will boost your language acquisition and give you a chance to learn new words and improve your knowledge. If English is your native language, you will probably teach me a lot. That’s a win-win situation for all of us.
I believe exercise is one of the keys to success. Repetition boosts learning. Obviously, you need to follow your natural tendencies in order to succeed in any field and if you choose to focus on something you are particularly good at, the chances of succeeding multiply. You need to find out what you are naturally good at ( let’s postpone this discussion for now). But as far as languages are concerned, I believe you will never truly make a language yours if you do not fully dive into it. That is why I make videos in multiple languages and this is why I have been writing half of my journals in English for the past 7 years. Am I good at it? Not entirely. I am not that bad at it, but I can’t say my language is flawless. At least I try. I want to set a good example, as it is always worth giving it a shot if you feel like doing it. Follow your gut instinct in any sphere of your life. Only pay attention to constructive criticism and do not let negative/useless remarks get to you.
Although some people feel like negative remarks can be challenging and useful, I consider them an expression of repressed anger and downright jealousy. It does not serve you well, therefore do not allow it in your life. Only pay attention to those you think highly of. Teachers, professionals, mentors, highly intelligent people: you will find out they never express themselves in rude, gratuitously negative terms.
You choose what to allow in your life.
Thank you for following me on this journey! More posts will come.
I appreciate every comment I get. Feel free to let me know if you want me to tackle any subject in particular.
Let’s start the New Year now!
