My Four Seasons is a testimony of life. A personal diary transformed into a profound but also fun lecture about how to face an illness with a positive mind; describing how the family and the friends play the most important role in recovery. Having an illness doesn’t mean we are ill… this is the most definite message this book leaves us with. It’s a message of hope and pragmatism about how to cope with difficult moments in our life, which appear suddenly. Those typical moments when we ask ourselves: “Why me?” instead of: “Now what?”… What constructive learning can we extract from every experience?
This is a book, which, those who don’t like reading, actually read it in “one shot”, and those who do enjoy books may even read it more than once. Refreshing and meaningful, it will bring memories of what is a priority in life and the values that fade away in our hectic day-to-day, in the middle of traffic, during the competitive professional race, in the search for financial stability… all valid elements in our earthly life, but which cannot be lived in isolation from our internal and spiritual world. Being happy is in our hands; it’s the attitude that makes the difference. We can choose to surrender to death, or we can choose to live. We can fall and stay there, or we can choose to get up!
To all those men and women who have the sad experience of going through an illness experience, know that we can heal ourselves, by regaining the balance and harmony among mind, body and spirit. Hopefully this story, together with so many other testimonies out there, will help diminish the suffering of all those who are just now starting their own journey.
