“But they {journalists} are still viewed as a rather privileged category. True, they no longer can ride buses free or go to the movies for free as was the case in Mussolini’s day. But they can still get into most museums or exhibitions without paying. If you’re a smooth operator you can get complimentary tickets for shows or the opera. Until recently, you could get a 30% discount on all domestic flights (now it’s 15%). And if you have trouble with any of your utilities,the utility company’s press office will be glad to give you a have in working things out. In addition, since many Italian journalists have a different sense of what constitutes a conflict of interest from what we do in the United States, they often accept any manner of gifts or paid vacations from companies they regularly cover.”
Sari Gilbert, My Home Sweet Rome: Living (and Loving) in the Eternal City

“Yes, I have firm belief in saying – What’s meant for you will show up at appropriate time.

But for sure this doesn’t mean that you sit down idle & do nothing. It doesn’t mean that you remain satisfied with your inherited accomplishments & not put forth effort to keep going & move further.

Yes, you must enjoy your blessedness & be grateful for it but you also need to make sure that you are putting the required efforts & spending your maximum time & energy to keep what you have got without rhyme or reason – your privileges, accomplishments, inheritance & everything else. That’s called the Law Of Maintenance.

I have written it many times earlier – Everything takes dedicated efforts & energy to attract, manifest & to even keep things going as it is. After all – You have to keep your foot pressed on the accelerator to keep your car going.

You can’t just sit on the highway & hope God will come to push your cart.

Keep becoming stronger in mind, body & spirit. Kerp elevating. Keep yourself nourished & charged to keep yourself going & growing. Remember, you’re capable of achieving nearly anything if you put sincere efforts.

I pray God to help you in attracting great experiences, unlimited opportunities & good news today & everyday. Continue to be blessed!”
