Gandul zilei 17#/Thought of the day 17#

In dimineata aceasta tocmai ce am avut un „wake up call”. Citeam un articol din feed-ul meu WordPress despre recunostinta, si despre a spune multumesc pentru tot ceea ce avem.

V-ati gandit vreodata la cat de nemultumiti putem fi? La cat de multe lucruri ne dorim si apoi dupa ce le avem cat de usor ne plictisim de ele si mergem mai departe ca si cum nimic nu s-ar fi intamplat? Sa va dau un exemplu.

Acum cateva zile, eram extrem de nemultumita, deprimata chiar, de faptul ca nu gaseam un job potrivit si ca eram mai mereu acasa, nereusind sa aduc un venit si fiind incapabila sa ma dezvolt. De saptamana aceasta situatia s-a schimbat, am un job mai mult decat placut, intr-un mediu minunat si agreabil, insa normal ca am o problema: Managementul timpului.

Pentru prima saptamana este putin cam dificil sa ma adaptez la programul de serviciu, la treburile de pe acasa si la activitatea de pe blog. Dar, din fericire ajung chiar la momentele potrivite in timp util fara a intarzia sau a nu realiza vreun lucru din ce imi propun.

Sigur ca sunt mai epuizata psihic datorita „sarcinii” de noi cunostinte, si la fel de obosita fizic dar sunt multumita, deoarece mi s-a indeplinit dorinta si pot evolua. Dar, normal, ca orice om am si nemultumiri si imi doresc sa pot functiona si mai bine dand un randament mai productiv.

Dar treptat realizez ca totul necesita timp, perseverenta si dedicare. Si ca in loc sa ma plang, ca am prea multe task-uri si prea putin timp la dispozitie pentru a le rezolva pot sa spun un simplu dar sincer „Multumesc” lui Dumnezeu ca m-a adus intr-un prezent mai mult decat perfect, alaturi de oameni frumosi si momente deosebite.

Asadar am doua alegeri: Sa ma plang si sa fiu morocanoasa sau sa fiu recunoscatoare si fericita pentru ceea ce am, muncind pentru un viitor mai bun, pentru o mai buna „eu”. Se spune ca recunostinta este o virtute a sufletelor nobile, cheia prosperitatii si fericirea dublata de surprindere.

Pentru mine recunostinta este un adevar ce l-am acceptat cu sufletul impacat, fiind multumita pentru ca ceea ce am cerut depaseste ceea ce am primit. Astfel, iau ziua de astazi ca pe un dar, eliberandu-ma din inchisoara preocuparii de sine.

Buddha spunea : “Sa ne ridicam si sa fim recunoscatori, pentru ca, daca nu am invatat multe lucruri astazi, macar am invatat putine, iar daca nu am invatat nici putine, macar nu ne-am îmbolnavit, iar daca ne-am îmbolnavit, macar nu am murit; așa ca, haideti sa fim cu totii recunoscatori.”

This morning I just had a „wake up call”. I read an article in my WordPress feed about gratitude, and about saying thank you for everything that we have.

Have you ever thought how discontented we can be? How many things do we want and then after we have them as easily bored with them and go on as if nothing had happened? Let me give you an example.

A few days ago, I was extremely unhappy, depressed, that I was not able finding a job, and that I was always at home, unable to make a living and being unable to grow. This week the situation has changed, I have a job more than pleasant, in a wonderful and agreeable environment, but normally I have a problem: Time management.

For the first week it’s a little difficult to adapt to work schedule, homework and blog activity. But fortunately I get to the right moments in a timely manner without delaying or not doing any of what I propose to myself.

Of course I’m more psychologically exhausted due to the „hardness” of new knowledge, and as well physically tired but I’m happy because my desire has been fulfilled and I can evolve. But normally, like any man I have and discontent, and I wish I could work better and give a more productive situation.

But gradually I realize that everything requires time, perseverance and dedication. And instead of crying that I have too many tasks and too little time to solve them I can say a simple but sincere „Thank you” to God that brought me into a more than perfect present, alongside beautiful people and special moments.

So I have two choices: To cry and be sad or to be grateful and happy for what I have, working for a better future for a better „I”. It is said that gratitude is a virtue of noble souls, the key to prosperity and happiness doubled by surprise.

For me, gratitude is a truth that I have accepted with my heart, and I am pleased that what I asked exceeded what I received. Thus, I take this day as a gift, freeing me from the prison of self-concern.

Buddha said, „Let us rise up and be grateful, for if we have not learned much today, at least we have learned a little, and if we did not learn a little, at least we did not get sick and if we got sick, at least I did not die; so let’s all be grateful. „

Invata, invata si iar invata!

In ultima perioada cred ca m-am invatat sa tot invat. In fiecare zi, ora din ora studiez. Daca nu ma ocup de studiat materia in sine atunci scriu formule; daca obosesc de la prea multa teorie atunci vin la laptop sa imi mai structurez prezentarea si rareori ma mai opresc pe aici sa va citesc pe voi, dragi colegi in de-ale scrisului.

Mai sunt doua zile cu tot cu astazi pana la ziua cea mare, ziua examenului de licenta. Ma gandesc la ziua de dupa maine si incep sa am emotii tulburatoare. Daca nu o sa ma concentrez destul, daca o sa uit ce am invatat?! Mii de astfel de ganduri imi trec prin minte si ma irita launtric.

As vrea sa ma gandesc ca totul o sa fie bine si ca o sa scap si de acest urcus din traiectoria vietii. Pana si discutia cu colegele si indrumatoarea de licenta ma streseaza dar sfarsesc prin a ma consola ca nu e totul sfarsit si ca mai sunt solutii.


Acum in prag de examen incerc sa ma motivez corespunzator si sa las aceste frici in spatele meu. O sa notez aici cateva randuri, zic eu, motivationale.

  1. In fiecare dimineata ai doua alegeri: sa continui sa dormi cu visele tale sau sa te trezesti sa le urmaresti (Every morning you have two choises: keep sleeping with your dreams or wake up and chase them);
  2. Nimeni nu poate merge in trecut sa dea startul unui nou inceput, dar oricine poate incepe astazi sa realizeze un nou final (Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending);
  3. Nu iti dori sa fi fost mai usor. Doreste-ti sa fii mai bun (Don’t wish it were easier. Wish you were better);
  4. Un rau taie prin piatra nu datorita puterii sale ci datorita perseverenței sale (A river cuts through rock not because of its power but because of its persistence).
  5. Poate ca ma vezi luptand dar niciodata nu ma vei vedea renuntand (You may see me struggle but you will never see me quit).
  6. Ai trei alegeri: renunta, incearca sau da tot ceea ce poti (You have three choices: give up, give in or give it everything you have got).
  7.  Daca iti poti imagina, pot sa realizezi. Daca o poti visa poti sa o faci (If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it).
  8. Te-ai nascut sa castigi. Dar ca sa fii un castigator, trebuie sa planuiesti sa castigi, sa te pregatesti sa castigi si sa astepti sa castigi (You were born to win. But to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win and expect to win).
  9. Crede ca poti si esti la jumatatea drumului (Believe you can and you’re halfway there).
  10. Unii oameni viseaza sa realizeze lucruri minunate. Altii raman treji si fac lucruri sa se intample (Some people dream of accomplishing great things. Others stay awake and make it happen).
