41 years old : happy birthday to myself !

Well, today is a special day for me : I am at last 41 years old ! I say “at last” because my 40th birthday was rather sad, since we knew that our life would change, but we did not know how.

Today I have the answer, and I am happy, so happy ! Today I got some messages from close friends, sincere words and wishes for which I thank them all from the bottom of my heart.

We are all here for a purpose and I would like to thank my wife Cristina for inspiring and helping and loving me every single day. Thank you my love !

And for those who happen to be born on the same day, I send you all my love and say : this f… life is so amazing to live !!

I wish you all the best !

me (not to be taken very serioulsy today 😉 )
