Bye Bye 2022...

Updated: Dec 11, 2023




Wow, time flies!


It seems like only yesterday that I was sitting down to write my last blog entry.

I had promised myself to stay as present as possible, but it’s incredible how quickly time can pass us by.




I was going over my website and I was shocked to see that my last blog post was in April. I had been so focused on what I was doing that I had lost track of time.


However, it is important to take the time to appreciate the moments as they pass, take a break now and then and to not forget to be present.


Where to start this little update...


Talking about achievements in these past months, I recorded and released Piano's Tales Vol. 1, Vol. 2 Vol. 3 and Vol. 4 and I'm currently still working on 10 new pieces that will be out in 2023.

On the other side I self published 3 fantasy books ( I apologize to not Italian speakers!) and they are available on Amazon ( any support is greatly appreciated ).


In addition 5 more books will be released in the new year.


Now that I read it looks like a lot of things I could accomplish although the sensation is that I didn't do enough...


In all this it’s important to remember to take care of your mental health while pursuing a career in any field.

The process can be overwhelming, and it’s easy to get frustrated when you’re watching videos of gurus claiming to have all the solutions.





And on this topic I'd like to spend a little time.


Besides trying to be active on Youtube with my channel uploading videos featuring my music, I spent a lot of time watching videos trying to find a solution to "defeat the algorithm". It felt like banging my head against the wall because the more I followed the advice of the gurus, the less results I saw. Instead of giving up, I trusted my gut and decided to just focus on doing what I love with passion and "screw the algorithm": at the end it takes one person to love and believe in your product to " go viral" ( whatever that means!) and the infamous algorithm is something you can't control. So I decided to don't play its game. In theory it should serve me and not the other way around and if I keep feeding what it wants maybe I'll never be able to do what I want and express myself.


This resulted in an interesting change: the video suggestions on Youtube switched to what I usually tell myself: to think about the art, not the plugins or what other people do. Everyone has their own story, and I needed to enjoy the process and have fun with it. If I was bitter and frustrated, it wouldn't help anyone, myself included. It looked like a sign!


I truly believe that the law of attraction is real, and when you focus on doing what you love without worrying about what others think, you’ll start to receive positive reinforcement.


No matter what you do, you can't please everyone. Some people will love it, some people will be indifferent, and some will "hate" it. It's important to focus on the positive and try to find the true fans who genuinely support you without expecting anything in return.


My goal for 2023 is to share my experiences, both the successes and the failures, with others. I want to share my daily routine and how I stay mentally healthy while still enjoying what I do.

Life is full of ups and downs, and there will be times when we feel discouraged, but we will never and cannot give up on our dreams.


I wish everyone a wonderful and prosperous 2023, full of health and happiness.
