“Our hearts will be broken a thousand times over, but who is to say that our hearts were ever perfect to begin with? Maybe they can withstand a few cracks. After all, the way that we love is not perfect. We love things to such an incomprehensible depth that these things become worn in. Wouldn’t the most beautiful thing in the world be a heart that has been through all of the wear and tear, as worn in as your favorite sweater that both keeps you warm and grants you a smile in return? That’s the kind of heart that I want. Bruises make for beautiful colors after all. “ Elizabeth Brooks

Hang in there, dear you

You know that moment when the week has just started, it’s Wednesday and your powers seem to fail? When you sleep too less but you feel that yesterday you slept even less than today?

When you wonder your powers and think if what you have done is enough and if you are doing a great job or just hanging around the world by just another thread?

When people may start to wonder how much you can take but you keep on moving and working, just giving your best in order to succeed?

Your powers may be low, your mind may be crowded with gray thoughts, your body is weak and you might feel that you are going to fail. But you are not, dear soul.

Always remember that you are strong, tenacious and powerful. You can do whatever you dream of and if you work strong enough today, tomorrow you might as well have it.

You are young, amazing and beautiful. Disregard the mistakes and the defects, they are just details in a world full of people with flaws. You are the best version of yourself and nobody can do a better job than you.

So, today at the beginning of the journey, pat yourself on the shoulder and remember that you are doing great, just hang in there, dear. Be kind and understanding with you because nobody is going to do it for you.

Work on being in love with the person in the mirror who has been through so much but is till standing. Sometimes the noise of life can be just too much. If you need to escape, love yourself enough to know when you need a real time out.

Quotes about tiredness and being tired

“You feel fine, and then, when your body can’t keep fighting, you don’t.”
― Nicholas Sparks, A Walk to Remember

“Take a shower. Wash away every trace of yesterday. Of smells. Of weary skin. Get dressed. Make coffee, windows open, the sun shining through. Hold the cup with two hands and notice that you feel the feeling of warmth. 
 You still feel warmth.
Now sit down and get to work. Keep your mind sharp, head on, eyes on the page and if small thoughts of worries fight their ways into your consciousness: threw them off like fires in the night and keep your eyes on the track. Nothing but the task in front of you. 
Get off your chair in the middle of the day. Put on your shoes and take a long walk on open streets around people. Notice how they’re all walking, in a hurry, or slowly. Smiling, laughing, or eyes straight forward, hurried to get to wherever they’re going. And notice how you’re just one of them. Not more, not less. Find comfort in the way you’re just one in the crowd. Your worries: no more, no less.

Go back home. Take the long way just to not pass the liquor store. Don’t buy the cigarettes. Go straight home. Take off your shoes. Wash your hands. Your face. Notice the silence. Notice your heart. It’s still beating. Still fighting. Now get back to work.
Work with your mind sharp and eyes focused and if any thoughts of worries or hate or sadness creep their ways around, shake them off like a runner in the night for you own your mind, and you need to tame it. Focus. Keep it sharp on track, nothing but the task in front of you.
Work until your eyes are tired and head is heavy, and keep working even after that.

Then take a shower, wash off the day. Drink a glass of water. Make the room dark. Lie down and close your eyes.
Notice the silence. Notice your heart. Still beating. Still fighting. You made it, after all. You made it, another day. And you can make it one more. 
You’re doing just fine.
You’re doing fine.

I’m doing just fine.”
― Charlotte Eriksson, You’re Doing Just Fine

“I got tired of feeling like Dracula. I wanted to see some daylight, and not just at six o’clock in the morning.”
― Kate Moss

“Sometimes exhaustion is not a result of too much time spent on something, but of knowing that in its place, no time is spent on something else.”
― Joyce Rachelle

“I’m smiled out, talked out, quipped out, socialized so far from any being, I need the weight of mortal silences to get realized back into myself.”
― John Ciardi, This Strangest Everything

“She felt dirty, ugly and tired. She felt like a marshmallow heading into a house fire armed with chocolate and graham crackers.”
― Benjamin R. Smith, Atlas

“We will go far away, to nowhere, to conquer, to fertilize until we become tired. Then we will stop and there will be our home.”
― Dejan Stojanovic

“We all grow tired eventually; it happens to everyone. Even the sun, at the close of the year, is no longer a morning person.”
― Joyce Rachelle

“I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.”
― Theodore Roethke, Words for the Wind: The Collected Verse

“I am tired. I would like to be a mountain, a tree, a stone.”
― Susan Sontag, I, etcetera

“So tired you want to quit, then you get more tired, and forget to quit.”
― Charles Bukowski, South of No North

“Coffee and makeup would reach its limit and no longer work in hiding my sleeplessness.”
― Mandy Nachampassack-Maloney

You get very tired, and there was a certain amount of pain and you slow up. Your legs are so tired that you are in fact slowing. If you don’t keep running, keep your blood circulating, the muscles stop pumping the blood back and you get dizzy.  Roger Bannister

  1. Enjoy the journey and try to get better every day. And don’t lose the passion and the love for what you do. Nadia Comaneci
  2. Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose not to let little things upset yourself. Joel Osteen
  3. Keep looking up! I learn from the past, dream about the future and look up. There is nothing like a beautiful sunset to end a healthy day. Rachel Boston

And you can only do that if you’re being honest with yourself and being a person of high character. You have an opportunity every single day to write that story of your life. Aaron Rodgers
  8. Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear or feel it when it comes to us. Let’s not be afraid to receive each day’s surprise whether it comes to us as a sorrow or as joy, It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity.

What about today?

I have been so caught up in this crazy routine, one day after another that now when it tends to calm down I am scared. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the fact that it has slowed down the rhythm but it’s just that I am not used to it.

So today, besides home chores and work I believe I will just do things in a more rational way, now that I am well rested and have energy. After all, if I cannot do great things, I will do smaller things in a great way.

And live the moment.

World, stop running

I don’t know if it is just me but sometimes I get the feeling that we are moving too fast. And believe me, I am not a slow person, in contrary I am doing things fast and performing multi-tasking activities all the time.

Always on a hurry, always right on time, always skipping a beat. I so much wish that things could be happening slower, with precision and rightfulness.

So, for this week I have only one request for the Universe: Please, bear with me. And God, help me because I feel like the world is running and I am left behind. Moving fast is not the same as going somewhere with a purpose.

Another soul has passed away…

In this short life we ​​meet special people, wonderful people who bring an extra color and cheerfulness, which refreshes the day’s living.

In fact, I am talking about our grandparents. After my beloved grandparents died I turned my affection towards my husband’s grandparents, who, like mine, were good people with holy and righteous souls.

I think grandparents, wherever they are or live, are the same. Love and respect for grandparents everywhere should be similar to ours.

Grandparents …

I’m talking about those people who have grown generations and generations, who have lived long enough to be able to tell storied to the grandchildren with longing and passion for those gray times.

Those people who knew the true meaning of the word „work”, working from dawn to night, without pause and fatigue, together for family and well-being.

Those dear souls who dedicated their lives to work in the country, who loved the work and the riches of the earth given from the God to their last breath.

Those who spent decades at each other’s arm, enjoying together good days and bad days. Those people who did not say goodbye after the first fight, but who shyly smiled after a few moments of silence, shook their arms and continued the journey of life as a whole.

Those people who enjoyed the first cup of coffee on the brink of the morning, sipping uneasily and discussing together about family, neighbors and life.

Those who have not been estranged from their marriage for years, have proved that as a Phoenix bird, marriage must come back to life at all times, despite all the unfavorable circumstances.

Those people who loved the Church and the word of the Lord, who followed the rules of the village group, fasting whole fastings, loving life without sin.

A few good-bye words …

Yesterday I drove a person dear to me and my family, my husband grandmother on the last road. A gentle, calm and calculated woman, a woman who loves family and good people, a wonderful woman.

Heaven wept for her departure from this world, warming the whole village in a sea of ​​cold and acid tears. People from the village, relatives, friends and acquaintances all gathered to take us on the last road our grandma, as we know or dear Aurica.

She went to be with the one she loved all her life, with the partner she spent her whole life with. Step by step, prayer by prayer, we went to the place of eternity, as usual in a cart drawn by horses, through mud and unpaved road.

Although the world was screaming and crying for her departure, Grandma would no longer respond as before, with her body immobilized and hard, trapped in the wooden coffin. Only the sky was responding to the reactions of those around her, wiping hot  and longing tears.

Now the family is poorer without the two beloved members, grandmother and grandfather. There will be no one at the country who will meet us at the gate with the words: „Hey, my dear nephews” or „Grandma’s babies”. No one will make us chicken soup as only my grandmother knew how to make, steak or other goodies.

They will remain in our souls and in our memory, those two wonderful people who made our childhood more beautiful, who taught us and brought us on the right path in life. At the end of the day we are thankful to the Lord that he enriched our lives with such beautiful people, we were fortunate that we had them.

Goodbye, dear souls! Rest in peace!

S-a mai stins un suflet…

In viata aceasta scurta cunoastem persoane speciale, deosebite care aduc un plus de culoare si veselie, care improspateaza trairea zilei.

Ma refer de fapt, la bunici. Dupa ce dragii mei bunici au decedat mi-am indreptat afectiunea catre bunicii sotului meu, care la fel ca si ai mei, au fost oameni buni cu suflet sfant si drept.

Sunt de parere ca bunicii, de oriunde ar fi sau trai, sunt aceeiasi. Dragostea si respectul catre bunicii de pretutindeni ar trebui sa fie similara ca cea pentru ai nostri.

Bunicii…

Vorbesc despre acele persoane care au crescut generatii si generatii, care au trait indestul de mult incat sa poata povesti nepotilor cu dor si patima de acele vremuri gri.

Acele persoane care au cunoscut adevaratul sens al cuvantului „a munci”, tragand din zori si pana noapte, fara pauza si oboseala, impreuna pentru familie si bunastare.

Acelor suflete dragi care si-au dedicat viata muncii la tara, care au iubit truda si bogatiile pamantului daruite de la bunul Dumnezeu pana la ultima suflare.

Cei care si-au petrecut decenii intregi unul la bratul celuilalt, bucurandu-se impreuna de zile bune si zile rele. Acele persoane care nu si-au spus ramas bun dupa prima cearta, ci care si-au zambit timid dupa cateva momente de tacere, s-au luat in brate si au continuat calatoria vietii ca un tot unitar.

Acele persoane care se bucurau de prima ceasca de cafea in pragul diminetii, sorbind cu nesat si discutand impreuna despre familie, vecini si viata.

Cei care nu s-au ofilit dupa ani intregi de casnicie ci au dovedit ca precum o pasare Phoenix mariajul trebuie sa reinvie in fiecare moment al vietii, in ciuda tuturor imprejurarilor nefavorabile.

Acele persoane care au iubit Biserica si cuvantul Domnului, care au urmat regulile grupului din sat, postind posturi intregi, iubind viata fara de pacat.

Cateva cuvinte de ramas bun…

Ieri am condus pe ultimul drum o persoana draga mie si familiei, pe bunica sotului meu. O femeie blanda, calma si calculata, o femeie iubitoare de familie si oameni buni, o femeie minunata.

Cerul a plans plecarea ei din aceasta lume, scaldand tot satul intr-o mare de lacrimi reci si acide. Oamenii veniti din sat, rude, prieteni si cunoscuti cu totii ne-am adunat pentru a o conduce pe ultimul drum pe bunica, cum o stim noi sau pe draga Aurica.

Ea a mers sa fie intr-un final impreuna cu cel pe care l-a iubit toata viata ei, cu partenerul alaturi de care si-a petrecut toata viata. Pas cu pas, rugaciune cu rugaciune, ne indreptam catre locul de veci, cum este datina intr-o caruta trasa de cai, prin noroi si drum neasfaltat.

Desi lumea striga si plangea plecarea ei, Bunica nu mai raspundea ca odinioara, avand trupul inmarmurit si greu, prins in cosciugul de lemn. Doar cerul raspundea la reactiile celor din jur, stergand lacrimi calde si pline de dor.

Acum familia este mai saraca fara cei doi membri iubiti, bunica si bunicul. Nu va mai fi nimeni la tara care sa ne intampine la poarta cu cuvintele: „Eei, dragii bunicului” sau „Puii mamii dragi”. Nu ne va mai face nimeni bors de pui cum doar bunica stia sa faca, friptura sau alte bunataturi.

Ne vor ramane in suflet si in amintire, acele doua persoane minunate care ne-au facut copilaria mai frumoasa, care ne-au invatat si ne-au adus pe calea cea buna in viata. La sfarsitul zilei suntem recunoscatori Domnului ca ne-a imbogatit viata cu asa persoane frumoase, am fost norocosi ca i-am avut.

Ramas bun, suflete dragi! Odihniti-va in pace!

Don’t I get to have a saying in this?

I don’t know about you guys, but for me it has been a long week, starting from Sunday.

 You know that moment when you leave from home but you have no idea when you are returning? When your so glad that you arrived at home but still have chores to do and end up getting in the bed late? When the phone rings in the morning the same awful tune, all over again? Well for me whole week it has been like this.

Don’t get me wrong, I do love my work, even if sometimes is getting too hard to manage the load of tasks. I try my best to do the best I can in a few hours so that I could be happy of my results and so the company.

I also love my lovely family, for which I try to do the best to keep it happy and together, despite the odd circumstances, for better and for worse.

I try to put heart in everything that I do, even if sometimes I should not get involved so much in simple tasks, even if people advise me not to do that. I believe this is the way I am built and a little bit of passion and heart in every single task is not too much.

But sometimes I believe it is time to put a stop to it and refresh the session. Like, get a little time for myself and recover the energy tank, until it will not get empty. And you know also when you make plans and life gets ahead of you?

Yeah, in the past few months I felt like life made a lot of decisions without asking me. I feel like my happy emotions and feelings got away on a big vacation and I am left with the sad ones. Just like in the animation movie Inside Out.

Today a loved person from my family passed away, went in heaven to be with the angels. The funny thing is that I have planned to rest during the weekend and I have never thought even for a second that something bad could actually happen.

I did not get the chance to feel sorry, to cry or to mourn the loss. I was at office, working again and again, speaking too much for a day, forgetting about me and reality. Lately I get the feeling that life is happening and I don’t get to say a word about it. Just accept it and move on. My only question is until when.
