The Tao of Selena

Life is a combination of love, the magic of books & Italian food.

I hope that after reading The Tao of Selena it changes your life—I know that’s a bit dramatic, but as an Italian, drama is my rite of passage.

If my bits of Tao wisdom don’t change your life, my wish is that this page will elicit a smile, or perhaps an eye roll? It doesn’t matter, all emotion is good.





Share your life with a person who kills spiders, laughs at your not-so-funny-jokes, is witty, smart, shares your sense of fun, gives great hugs, & keeps raisins far away from you.

This all helps for moments when he/she bugs the holy crazy out of you.





Nothing in the world is impossible. Wait, flying on your own—that’s impossible. So do it with something that has wings like an; airplane, hand glider or a parachute.


The grass is greener on the other side because it was watered, weeded & dog poop was picked up—all accomplished without complaint. Keep your grass healthy, and don’t compare yourself to others.




Chocolate, music and cuddling are all cheaper than therapy and you don’t have to sit in a waiting room.




Every woman needs that friend(s) who is the she in her nanigans.

Every man (even a bonified “Maverick”) needs a “Goose” wingman in their corner.




When starting something new, and the challenges seem overwhelming, don’t place your faith in the “what-ifs”, pour all your faith in the “why not’s?” Remember all the challenges you’ve already conquered, and go forth and do it. Whatever “it” is for you.


We’re not here for a long time. We’re here for an awesome time. So go awesomize the world.
