Simone Cortellaro

Clarity. Courage. Satisfaction

Do you know those sentences that begin with “actually…”? Actually, I wanted to; actually, I can; actually, I should… many people’s lives are full of sentences that begin with “actually”, not to mention their thoughts and their feelings. Where the “actually” is, there is the way for clarity and courage for the smaller and greater changes in life. The resulting satisfaction out of these changes is exactly what I wish for you.
