2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,700 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

My gift for you

(…) Sint din ce in ce mai convins ca nu e vorba de combinatii haotice, ca biologia si mistica se pupa pe undeva si sint legate printr-un sens adinc, dar ca nimic nu e prestabilit, ni se da numai ocazia si noi alegem daca sa o luam sau sa-i dam cu piciorul si ca daca alegerea presupune dificultate, daca presupune munca, inseamna ca e adevarata. Chimia se simte la inceput, dar se consolideaza in timp. Sau poate nu se simte deloc de la inceput, dar e posibil sa fie invatata sau primita ca un dar, ca o transmutare a elementelor, dar numai atita vreme cat nu-ti dispretuiesti corpul. (…)

Daca te iei dupa filme si muzica si articole de revista, ai zice ca toata lumea cauta dragostea sau ca o pretuieste mai mult decit orice, dar nu e asa, ni se pare ca sint atitea lucruri mai serioase, cind o avem, renuntam asa usor la ea pentru alte prostii, crezind ca e o resursa nelimitata, dar nu e. Cum imi spune mama cind ma cert cu C., impaca-te, ca viata e scurta si n-are rost sa alergi dupa himere. Inselaciunea e o astfel de himera, ti se inchide inima si ti se pare ca partenerul e un film pe care l-ai vazut de prea multe ori, cind de fapt un om e o descoperire continua, uiti ca traiesti foarte putin si n-ai timp destul sa-l iubesti cum trebuie. Inselaciunea e un fel de ADHD, in loc sa te concentrezi pe un om, te risipesti, e isteria aia de adolescent care sta acasa cind prietenii lui sunt la o petrecere si isi inchipuie ca lucruri nemaipomenite se intampla in alta parte in absenta lui- in cazul adulterului, e teama ca undeva acolo se fac tot felul de nebunii senzuale care tie, blocat la un singur partener, iti scapa printre degete. Teama de banalitate, de rutina, despre care acelasi Kierkegaard spunea ca e sursa tutror relelor, e un alt motor. La multi barbati, si mai nou si la femei, poligamia e o demonstratie de forta facuta pentru aplauzele prietenilor. Vinatoarea de trofee se plateste scump, esti condamnat la inconsistenta, la o viata de fantoma, nu apuci sa te bucuri mai mult de cineva, sa-l lasi sa ti se imprime in memoria afectiva, sa ajungi sa-i pretuiesti stingaciile sau acele particularitati pe care le numim defecte, sa-i descoperi calitatile mai putin vizibile, unicitatea si frumusetea sa. (…)

In cele din urma, inseli si pentru ca ti-e prea bine si ai uitat cum e sa-ti fie rau, ca atunci cind te vindeci de o boala si uiti cum te-ai chinuit si reiei obiceiurile nesanatoase. Ai dragoste si crezi ca e normal sa o ai si te plictiseste. De cite ori o sa ajung in acest punct, sper ca o sa-mi amintesc de momentele cind clantaneam de frig in plin soare, cind cautam afectiune si dadeam peste pereti reci.

Am vrut sa va transmit asta pentru ca acum e momentul sa apreciem ce avem, mai ales pe cei din jurul nostru; pentru ca in ultima vreme am asistat la multa superficialitate, pentru ca aceasta perioada e didicata dragostei fata de cei apropiati si pentru ca acest mesaj mi-a ajuns la inima intr-un ajun singuratic….

100% Christmas

it’s the most wonderful time…

Now, with all these moments of celebration, with hopes and dreams gathered around the Christmas Tree, I wish you all be with the ones you love. Be grateful to what you have. Be proud of your family, your friends and closed ones. Say „Thank you!” for your gifts, for your love and give your best. It’s time to enjoy life and holidays, it’s time to give and to receive.

Think of all your accomplishments and wish for more. You can not ask for less than what you deserve. Be as happy as you can be and smile. Be a „Secret Santa”, be someones’ gift for Christmas, be blessed!

I wish you wonderful moments of happiness and joy! Have a Merry Christmas!



Can you keep a secret?

If I told you a secret, will you keep it for yourself?

What’s you biggest secret? What is that thought of yours that comes through your mind when no one is around? I bet you have s secret place in your mind you go to whenever times are hard. When you seem to be in another place and dream away with your eyes open, where do you go?  

Don’t you wish you’d like to have someone to share all your secrets with? They wouldn’t judge you, they wouldn’t misunderstand you, they wouldn’t treat you bad because your thoughts are not the ones you expose.

Don’t we all let the ones around us see what we want to see? Aren’t we the ones who say to other people: You don’t know me at all! and in the same time, we never show ourselves with our true „faces”?

Will we ever be able to stop hiding behind perfect matches of our emotions and let ourselves be free to trully express our feelings? I would really like to scream sometime and I would like you not to look at me like I’m nuts; just bear in mind I know you’d like to do that too.

I’d like to be able to get in your mind and read your thoughts. What do you think about that?

I Feel Like This

I know so much…

… yet I can’t remember anything 🙂

I haven’t invented that saying, but I’d like to adopt it.

I was just thinking the other days what is that exact thing that we need to feel complete. Is that a good car, a great job, is that a person who makes you feel you’re the king of the world, is that a journey you have to complete?

And so I’ve realised that I just need to have a 100% hold on me. I’ve realised that everyone around me seems to be looking for that something. Well, I’m sorry to dissapoint you so, but that something… well… that something just doesn’t exist; YOU are that special everything you are looking for, and everything you are is written within you. Don’t you see that what you are thinking happens? Don’t you wish you’d be more happier, and, during this time, you’re complaining about your miserable life? I really think I’m self-suficient. I really thing that I would really die without the ones I love around me, but most of all, I’d be lost without me, I’d be self-distructed if I’d think for only one second I’m no good. I’m good enough to make me happy, and I can even make other ones happy. And, well, I’m not getting any better than being myself.

What is that something you’re looking for? I’ve heard that life is what happens while you’re busy making plans. I know I’m never patient enough, but I just don’t live like I will have all the time in the world. I don’t live like today is my last day neither. But I live like I’m trying to take the best of it, and I’m willing to do that now. I can’t waste time, because life won’t wait for me, it’s not like the bus, if you lost it, don’t worry, there will be another one in about 5 minutes.

Don’t waste your time, go live it and enjoy it, go tell everyone how happy you are you can see, hear and laugh. Go get that sexy thing you’re thinking of and kiss each other. Go there, anywhere you want to go, and then get back. But never get back to black days, rainy nights and sleepless weeks.

I know this is not everything, but I know that everything can lie in me.

I tend to be perfect. I’m not!

Why is everybody so serios? 

I had a funny moment some days ago, while traveling to work by subway. I wasn’t really looking around ( how I usually do) when a nice girl got into the train. She was so happy that she kept smiling for some time. First, I thought she might be a bit crazy. Then, suddenly, I realised that everyone else was crazy. Why is everybody so serios, so upset, so angry? I looked around and noticed that she was the only one smiling. Not even me, I was also thinking at all the things I had to do and forgot how to enjoy myself. I wanted to ask her if she really had a reason for that big smile on her face. But then again, why would she need an exact reason to smile? Shouldn’t we all be happy because we’re healthy, or because we remembered something nice, or just because one smile can make our day? Since that day, when I realise I have a serious face, I put my smile on my face and say What the hell? Let’s have a nice day today and be great!

From time to time some people wake me up back to reality, they keep reminding me of everything life is about, they want me back on Earth. Well, people, I’m still here, I just like to dream on a better life while trying to make this one I live greater. I have my reasons. I have my style. But one will never see me back down. That’s why it would be much better if we’d all try to make ourselves better. I might have bad days, I’m also sad when it rains, but then I’ll have to remember those sunny days at the beach which I thought for a moment that won’t come back, but they did, and what great time they’ve made.

I’d like to have much more power so I can make the ones around me happier, or at least, when I can, I’m satisfied with puting a smile on their serious faces. Let’s do something more of our lifes and let’s try to do that together! Today would be a great day to remember how a smile can change it and make it better 🙂
