Anul 2018 in retrospectiva/ 2018 in retrospective

Nisipul fin din clepsidra vietii isi numara ultimele fire de timp ale anului 2018. Ne mai despart doar cateva ore de noul an 2019 si cu aceasta ocazie as dori sa privesc inapoi, in retrospectiva la clipele anului 2018.

Imi place sa cred ca anul 2018 a fost un an bun. Privind inapoi la toate sarcinile indeplinite cu succes, la toate furtunile si incercarile la care am fost supusa, la toate lucrurile invatate si toate descoperirile nu pot decat sa admit ca anul 2018 a fost de poveste.

Pentru mine a fost anul cunoasterii si dezvoltarii, anul in care a luat sfarsit pregatirea scolara si a inceput pregatirea pentru viata adevarata si dura.

2018 a fost anul in care am varsat lacrimi de bucurie si de dor la finalizarea studiilor, anul in care am mai pasit o treapta pe scala sociala, devenind angajata cu drepturi depline, (nu din prima incercare, dar important este ca mi-am regasit echilibrul ulterior).

In 2018 am cunoscut oameni noi, suflete inzestrate cu caractere si comportamente speciale, oameni cumsecade si oameni falsi. Am legat prietenii care mai apoi s-au destramat, am ras cu pofta si am plans cu lacrimi sarate. Fiecare persoana care m-a cunoscut si-a lasat o mica amprenta pe sufletul meu, schimbandu-ma in mod pozitiv si ajutandu-ma sa percep viata asa cum este ea, cu bune si cu rele.

Am invatat sa pretuiesc oamenii de langa mine si am descoperit adevarata insemnatate a cuvantului familie. Dupa o zi lunga de serviciu, cel mai bun tratament revitalizant este imbratisarea celor dragi si atmosfera familiara de acasa, sentimentul de a iubi si a fi iubit.

Am invatat ca nu trebuie sa imi fie frica de esec, ci sa imi fie frica de a nu incerca. Am invatat ca desi viata ma pune in situatii dificile, trebuie sa avansez si sa fiu recunoscatoare ca am trecut prin acele momente; am invatat ca fiecare vanataie este o lectie, si fiecare lectie este un pas inainte.

Am invatat ca sunt oameni care sunt pusi in situatii mai dificile decat mine, am invatat ca nu trebuie sa ma plang, am invatat ca trebuie sa vorbesc mai putin si sa ascult mai mult. Impreuna cu cei dragi am descoperit locuri noi din aceasta lume si am trait experiente de neuitat. Mi-am dat seama ca unele cai frumoase nu pot fi descoperite decat prin a te pierde.

Nu in ultimul rand, in 2018 am inceput sa cresc, articol cu articol blogul de pe care scriu in acest moment si am inceput sa am ganduri de viitor. Am inteles ca WordPress-ul ascunde o lume unita si frumoasa, am descoperit bloggeri dedicati, am inteles ca prin intermediul acestei platforme uriase, WordPress, pot face o diferenta. Pentru aceasta, multumesc echipei Wordpres si miilor de cititori si bloggeri care fac acest lucru posibil.

2018 s-a caracterizat prin emotii, nopti nedormite, lacrimi si sperante noi, bucurii, esecuri, incercari, rabdare, perseverenta, credinta, dragoste, descoperiri, fericire si implinire.

Ce va aduce 2019? Sunt extrem de curioasa si eu. Nu sunt genul de persoana care isi face planuri prea multe, insa atunci cand imi doresc ceva am grija sa se intample. Asadar, nu am o lista prea lunga insa am cateva idei solide:

In 2019 imi doresc mai mult decat orice sanatate. Imi doresc sa fiu fericita cu familia mea, imi doresc sa evoluez la noul loc de munca si sa continui sa imi scriu, cuvant cu cuvant, povestea vietii prin intermediul platformei WordPress.

La finalul articolului, doresc sa multumesc tuturor persoanelor ce au fost alaturi de mine in 2018, persoanelor ce au crezut in mine si m-au ajutat sa devin ceea ce sunt astazi.

Acum, la cumpana dintre ani, va urez speranta in suflet si curajul de a trece peste incercarile noului an. Belsug, sanatate si fericire, La Multi Ani!

The fine sand of life’s hourglass counts the last threads of the year 2018. We are split up just a few hours of the new year 2019 and on this occasion I’d like to look back in retrospect at the time of 2018.

I like to think 2018 was a good year. Looking back at all the accomplished tasks, at all the storms and trials I have been subjected to, all the things learned, and all the discoveries, I can only admit that the year 2018 was beautiful.

For me it was the year of knowledge and development, the year when schooling ended and started preparing for real and durable life.

2018 was the year in which I shed tears of joy and longing to finish the studies, the year when I stepped on a social scale, becoming a full-time employee (not from the first attempt, but it is important that I found myself balance later).

In 2018 I met new people, souls endowed with special characters and behaviors, good men and fake men. I tied friendships that later broke up, I laughed with appetite and cried with salty tears. Every person who has met me has left a small footprint on my soul, changing me positively and helping me to perceive life as it is with good and bad.

I have learned to value the people next to me and have discovered the true meaning of the word family. After a long day of work, the best revitalizing treatment is embracing loved ones and the familiar home atmosphere, the feeling of love and being loved.

I have learned that I do not have to be afraid of failure, but to be afraid of not trying. I have learned that although life puts me in difficult situations, I have to move forward and be grateful that I have gone through those moments; I have learned that every bruise is a lesson, and every lesson is a step forward.

I have learned that there are people who are in more difficult situations than I have been, I have learned that I do not have to cry, I have learned that I have to talk less and listen more. Together with my loved ones, we have discovered new places in this world and have lived unforgettable experiences. I realized that some beautiful journeys can only be discovered by losing yourself.

Last but not least, in 2018 I started to grow up, article by article with the blog I am writing at this time and I started to think about the future. I understand that WordPress hides a united and beautiful world, I have discovered dedicated bloggers, I understand that through this huge platform, WordPress, can make a difference. For this, I thank the WordPress team and thousands of readers and bloggers who are making it possible.

2018 has been characterized by emotions, sleepless nights, new tears and hopes, joys, failures, trials, patience, perseverance, faith, love, discovery, happiness and fulfillment.

What will 2019 bring? I am very curious too. I’m not the kind of person who plans too much, but when I want something I’m looking to make it happen. So I do not have a long list, but I have some solid ideas:

In 2019 I wish more than any health. I want to be happy with my family, I want to evolve to the new job and continue to write, word by word, the story of life through the WordPress platform.

At the end of the article, I want to thank all the people who were with me in 2018, the people who believed in me and helped me to become what I am today.

Now, at the age of years, I wish you hope and the courage to overcome the challenges of the new year. Wealth, health and happiness, Happy New Year!

Gandul zilei 12#/Thought of the day 12#

In ultima vreme am impresia ca urmeaza sa se intample ceva, am o presimtire conform DEX, [PRESIMȚÍ, presímt, vb. IV. Tranz. A simți dinainte, vag și instinctiv, ceea ce urmează să se întâmple], un sentiment ciudat.

Un buchet de sentimente neintelese de interiorul meu, ma invaluie treptat conferindu-mi o senzatie neobisnuit de stranie si incomoda.

Simt ca ar trebui sa fac un lucru insa am sentimentul ca nu este cel mai potrivit aspect pentru momentul de fata si ma indrept catre alte lucruri, fara rezultate prea satisfacatoare.

La sfarsitul zilei ma regasesc obosita dupa o zi lunga de serviciu, insa fericita pentru ceea ce am realizat. Si ingandurata asupra posibilitatilor pe care le-ar putea oferi ziua de maine.

Ma linistesc la gandul ca orice ar putea aduce ea – ziua de maine – nu voi sfarsi fara a fi invatat ceva, fara a fi evoluat. De asemenea, visez la ocazii fericite, la zambete si reusita. Pentru ca ziua de ieri se regaseste in memoria de astazi si ziua de astazi se reflecta in ziua de maine.

Dupa cum spunea si Einstein, trebuie sa invatam din ziua precedenta, sa traim pentru astazi si sa speram pentru maine, cel mai important lucru este sa nu ne oprim din cercetat.

Asadar, in aceasta seara haideti sa uitam de neplacerile acumulate de-a lungul zilei si sa privim partile pozitive. Haideti sa retraim din nou zambetele si clipele haioase ce ne-au starnit sufletul din loc, haideti sa apreciem ceea ce avem astazi.

Haideti sa ne cream viitorul nostru acum pe baza clipelor de astazi, construind caramida cu caramida visul realitatii de maine.

English Version

Lately I have the impression that something is going to happen, I have a feeling according to DEX, [PRESIMŢI, presímt, vb. IV. Tranz. To feel beforehand, vaguely and instinctively, what is going to happen], a strange feeling.

A bunch of feelings unnoticed by my inside, gradually envelops me, giving me an unusually strange and uncomfortable feeling.

I feel like I should do one thing, but I’m feeling it’s not the right thing for the moment, and I’m heading for other things, with no satisfying results.

At the end of the day I find myself tired after a long day of work, but happy for what I have done. And the thoughts over the possibilities that tomorrow might offer.

I am reassured by the thought that anything it could bring – tomorrow – will not end without learning anything, without having evolved. I also dream of happy occasions, smiles and success. Because yesterday is in the memory of today and today is reflected in tomorrow.

As Einstein said, we must learn from the previous day, live for today and hope for tomorrow, the most important thing is not to stop ourselves from questioning.

So tonight, let’s forget about the accumulated unpleasant feelings throughout the day and look at the positive side. Let’s resume again the smiles and the funny moments that have stirred our souls, let’s appreciate what we have today.

Let’s build our future now based on today’s clips, building brick by brick the dream of tomorrow’s reality.

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – lyrics

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
our troubles will be miles away.

Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.

Through the years
We all will be together,
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself A merry little Christmas now.

Craciunul in 2018/ Christmas in 2018

In ultima perioada tind sa cred ca am pierdut adevarata esenta, adevarata bucurie a sarbatorii de Craciun. Noi nu mai sarbatorim nasterea Mantuitorului, ca in trecut ci spiritul comercial.

Televizorul ne incarca mintile cu reclame frumos imbracate in reduceri de sarbatori, cand de fapt sunt doar puternice tehnici de marketing utilizate pentru cresterea vanzarilor.

Obisnuim sa credem in neajuns si niciodata ceea ce avem nu este destul. Vrem din ce in ce mai mult, lucruri materiale si perisabile. Ne gandim mai mult la trup si mai putin la suflet, ce devine cu fiecare an mai sarac.

Ca in fiecare an de sarbatori, ne ingramadim in mall-uri si centre comerciale pentru a face cumparaturi. Ne impingem, ne calcam in picioare si ne certam pentru nimicuri, ca la sfarsitul zilei sa avem sufletul mai incarcat in energie negativa decat in ziua precedenta.

Am uitat de traditii, de obiceiuri si randuiala stramosilor. Acum, copii nu mai vin sa vesteasca Nasterea Mantuitorului din casa in casa, ci sunt preocupati cu telefoane de ultima generatie si anturaje… sunt preocupati sa para ceea ce nu sunt, sa faca impresie.

Am uitat sa respectam oamenii mai in varsta, am uitat valorile ce ne-au fost insuflate inca din primii ani ai vietii. Gasim sursa de amuzament in suferinta celuilalt si luam in deradere neputinta celor saraci cu duhul.

Gatim mese imbelsugate, ne umplem frigiderele cu bunataturi felurite pentru ca mai apoi, in cateva zile sa aruncam tot. Mancam mult, bem fara masura si apoi ajungem la spital… . In timp ce oamenii strazii mor inghetati de frig, cu o lumanare rupta in mana. Stirile vorbesc in fiecare an, mai bine decat pot eu povesti.

Daca privim in versurile colindelor, nu vom gasi niciodata realitatile zilei de astazi. In trecut lumea gasea bucurie in lucruri marunte, nu erau mese imbelsugate, nu era mandrie, doar pura fericire.

Spre exemplu in colinda Dumnezeu si Petru Sfant:

„Coborat-au pe pamant
 Cel Domnutu-i bun
In mijlocul satului

La casa bogatului
Buna seara om bogat
Gata-i cina de cinat
Gata-i cina nu-i de voi
Ca-i de alti boieri ca noi

Dumnezeu s-o suparat
De la bogat o plecat
La marginea satului
La casa saracului

Buna seara om sarac
Gata-i cina de cinat
Gata-i cina cat-o fi
Cat-o fi om imparti

Dumnezeu s-o bucurat
Si pe toti i-a saturat”

Fiul Domnului, Iisus Hristos a fost nascut intr-o iesle, in frig, pe paie langa animale necuvantatoare. EL nu a avut conditiile noastre, nu a avut mese bogate, nu a avut caldura sau asternut cald, dupa cum reiese si din colinda Afara Ninge Linistit:

„Cum s-a nascut Hristos în frig,
În ieslea cea saraca,
Cum boul peste el sufla
Caldura ca sa-i faca”

In prezent avem atat de multe beneficii incat am uitat sa le apreciem la adevarata lor valoare. Suntem sanatosi, avem un camin deasupra capului si oameni care ne iubesc.

De Craciunul acesta, haideti sa ne bucuram de lucrurile marunte, haideti sa apreciem persoanele pe care Dumnezeu ni le-a oferit langa noi, haideti sa multumim pentru tot ceea ce nu realizam ca detinem.

Bogatie in suflet, fericire in zambet si lacrimi de bucurie in ochi. Craciun fericit, dragi cititori!

English version

Lately I tend to think that we have lost the true essence, the real joy of the Christmas holiday. We no longer celebrate the birth of the Savior, as in the past, but the commercial spirit.

The TV loads our minds with nicely packed commercials in holiday discounts, when in fact there are only powerful marketing techniques used to boost sales.
We tend to believe in shortcomings and never what we have is not enough. We want more and more material and perishable things. We think more of the body and less of a soul, which is becoming poorer every year.
Like every year of holidays, we’re busy shopping malls. We push ourselves, we stumble on our feet and fight for nothing, that at the end of the day we have the soul loaded with more negative energy than the previous day.

We forget about the ancestors’ traditions, customs. Now, children do not come to proclaim the Birth of the Savior in the house in the house, but they are concerned with last generation phones and entourages … they are preoccupied to look what they are not, to make an impression.

We forgot to respect the older people, we forgot the values ​​that have been inspired since the first years of our life. We find the source of amusement in the suffering of the other, and we take away the helplessness of the poor with the spirit.

We cook rich meals, fill our refrigerators with various kinds of goodies, and then, in a few days, throw everything. We eat a lot, drink and then get to the hospital … .While the street people are dying of cold with a broken candle in the hand. The news speaks every year, better than I can tell.

If we look at the lyrics of the carols, we will never find the realities of today. In the past, the world found joy in small things, there were no rich tables, no pride, only pure happiness.

For example in the carols God and Peter:

„They descended on the ground
In the middle of the village

At the rich house
Good evening rich man
Get ready for dinner
Ready dinner is not for you
Like other rich people like us

God is upset
From the rich he left
At the edge of the village
At the poor house

Good evening poor man
Is the dinner ready
The dinner is ready, but is few
Lets all join and eat

God rejoiced
And everyone got saturated”

The Son of the Lord, Jesus Christ was born in a manger in the cold, on straw near unguarded animals. He did not have our conditions, did not have rich meals, did not have warmth or warm bedding,

„How Christ was born in the cold,
In the poor manger,
How the ox on it blows
The heat to make it „

We now have so many benefits that we forgot to appreciate them at their true value. We are healthy, we have a home overhead and people who love us.

For this Christmas, let’s enjoy the little things, let’s appreciate the people God has given with us, let’s thank for everything we do not realize we own.

Wealth in soul, happiness in smile and tears of joy in the eye. Happy Christmas, dear readers!

Furie, partea I/Fury, part One

Sunt momente in viata noastra cand pur si simplu ne enervam, reactionand negativ la lucruri neplacute ce apar neasteptat in viata noastra.

Nu stiu alte persoane cum sunt, insa eu, de foarte multe ori tind sa rabufnesc in fata unor situatii iritante. Ma exprim printr-un comportament rece si ostil, fara sa ascult ceea ce mi se relateaza cu lux de amanunte, fara sa analizez ceea ce se intampla cu adevarat.

De foarte multe ori, acest lucru mi se intampla cu familia, cu cei dragi. Sunt constienta ca ar trebui sa ascult mai mult, sa incerc sa inteleg si sa caut o solutie impreuna cu ei, dar uneori acest lucru mi se pare imposibil de realizat.

Familia este liantul suprem al vietii si relatia cu aceste persoane este extrem de importanta. In ciuda insemnatatii acestui nucleu, uneori atitudinea si alegerile persoanelor ce fac parte din ea, ne fac de multe ori sa punem sub semnul intrebarii sentimentele noastre pentru ei.

Adesea incapatinarea, egoismul si indignarea ne pun la incercare in situatii dificile capacitatea de perceptie si afectiunea noastra pentru persoanele iubite.

…………………………………………………………………………………

Voi cum reactionati in asemenea situatii? Cum va exprimati furia si cum reusiti sa canalizati energiile negative in afara sferei de familie?

English version

There are moments in our lives when we simply annoy, reacting negatively to the unpleasant things that appear unexpectedly in our lives.

I do not know other people as they are, but I, many times, tend to rage against irritating situations. I express myself through a cold and hostile behavior without listening to what I am referring to with great detail without looking at what really happens.

This is often the case with my family, my dear ones. I am aware that I should listen to more, try to understand and seek a solution with them, but sometimes this seems impossible to achieve.

Family is the ultimate bond of life and the relationship with these people is extremely important. Despite the importance of this core, sometimes the attitude and the choices of the people who make it, often make us question our feelings for them.

Often stubbornnes, selfishness and indignation put us in difficult situations to test our ability to perceive and our affection for loved ones.

………………………………………….. …………………………………….

How do you react in such situations? How do you express your anger and how do you channel negative energies out of the family sphere?
