Am vazut prin usa deschisa suflete flamande de lumina, masti date la o parte, intrebari scaldate in lacrimi si descoperiri imbracate in semnul mirarii. Acasa. Si uite asa mi s-a facut o foame nebuna de ras, de drag de oameni si de iubire. Mai ales de iubire. Eu m-am intamplat vietii asteia, totusi! Continue reading

We are the creators of our own reality on all fronts of our life: personal, professional, hobbies... I cannot agree that we are victims, not even of our genetic inheritance - on the topic of the genes more to come (incubating now). Whatever we get in life it is a mirror of who we are inside. So if we love ourselves, the world will show us love and if we criticize ourselves, the world will tear apart all that we dissaprove of in ourselves. Is it easy? No, it is not easy, it is simple. And subtle. I love myself so that you can love me too! Continue reading

"It's your attitude, not your aptitude, that determines your altitude." (Zig Ziglar) Attitude is our jumping trampoline in life. And altitude is relevant not for the sake of heights, but for the realization of one's potential. Continue reading

"To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch... to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!" - Emerson Continue reading

Who would have thought that owning our own story would be difficult... get out of here, you'll tell me. Well, we might have fallen in our own trap and I'll explain. We have created social norms so that the rules of the game will be known to us all. And once we've created the rules, we introduced punishments for the ones not respecting the rules. So what's the preferred behavior? Comply! Not much wrong with that except that we're humans and humans are not perfect. I don't believe that someone can be 100% compliant at all times. So what do we do? We fake compliance, we hide our imperfections and we try to cheat. We might become good at that except that we cannot cheat ourselevs. And every now and then we silently take on one more secret in our luggage. We keep them safe and we do not realize that it gets heavy over time. And worrying so much to carry the weight as unobserved as possible, we stop being ourselves. We become who we are expected to be. Some get sick from the weight, some get fat, some get cynical... but mostly we become not our own story.... Continue reading

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden... Continue reading

"Human beings do not live forever, Reuven. We live less than the time it takes to blink an eye, if we measure our lives against eternity. So it might be asked, what value is there to a human life. There is so much pain in the world. What does it mean to have to suffer so much if our lives are nothing more than the blink of an eye? I learned a long time ago, Reuven, that a blink of an eye itself is nothing. But the eye that blinks, that is something. A span of life is nothing, but the man who lives that span, HE is something. He can fill that tiny span with meaning, so its quality is immeasurable though its quantity may be insignificant. Do you understand what I am saying? A man must fill his life with meaning, meaning is not automatically given to life. It is hard work to fill one's life with meaning. That I do not think you understand yet. A life filled with meaning is worthy of rest. I want to be worthy of rest when I am no longer here." Continue reading

Oh and one more thing...HACHI. He already inspired a city, a sculptor and a movie director. But his story continues to inspire generations after generations. One of a kind - Hachiko forever!
I get inspired by beauty. The secret is to look for beauty and you will find it everywhere. In ancient Persia the sufis had a saying that if the creator represents absolute good, and therefore absolute beauty, it is the nature of beauty to desire manifestation. And the nature of human beings is to desire happiness. Can you see it? Beauty makes us happy...
Let's talk luck today. Out of all definitions of good luck just one stroked a cord in me: "Luck is the redundancy of hard work". OK, that was some time ago. I hesitated on the topic of Luck for quite some time and I'm happy because in the meantime I've nailed it. So here's the part which I was looking for. It comes from Louis Pasteur: "Chance favors the prepared mind". It is quite obvious that even if something extraordinary comes along one's way and he or she is not ready, chances are the good thing will not materialize. Or simply put, "luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity" as Seneca put it. And all of a sudden I remember a good one that I cannot connect to a name: "experience is what you get when you don't get what you want". Can you see it? We have to practice to get ready for something bigger and only then it will come our way. And then we will finally call ourselves lucky. Good night and good luck everyone, Corina Continue reading

Here I am back respecting my yesterday's resolution. But before getting any further let me make myself well understood: I don't mean in any way to diminish the importance of any possible job, postmen included. Any job well done is worthwhile doing as long as it contributes to our progress. Today's quotes are from an old movie - The Postman (1997): "Tell me something: how much mail can a dead Postman deliver?" Well, that's my point. I just have the impression lately that we have way too many dead postmen around. Let me explain. We move things around and this movement drives progress if people bring added value in the process. If you just take one thing from left and move it to the right without changing it in any way you hardly have a role in that happening. I see it all the time and it's not really out of laziness or bad intentions. In most cases it is out of lack of knowledge how to handle it. Or interest. The same Postman said: "It takes one postman to make someone else a postman" But we have to seek the inquisitiveness to know what to do with that mail.... Continue reading

Ok, as of today I have a new resolution: to use quotes. And people, I love people. I have this widget on my iPhone that shows me quotes so when I got this one today I paused: "If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough" Mario Andretti. I had the feeling that things were pretty much in control lately only to figure out today that I might get complacent and slow... hmmm. OK you'll say, who's Andretti? Well, a legend in racing who won pretty much all that can be won on four wheels. Here he is: He also said: "If you wait, all that happens is that you get older." I agree, so no more waisting time! We might not be all winners and we might not be the best at the game we're playing. But you know what? How much time do we spend on the road and how much time at the destination? How long does it take for any Andretti of this world to get to where they want to? I bet it is longer than the time they stand on the podium. Actually most of their time is on the way. And...

I think it is part of the ancient wisdom that releasing your thoughts makes you feel lighter and at peace with yourself. It is therapy. Privacy is overrated anyway (more on this idea soon). We are social animals and we like to understand our world. I am not sure where we've got this thing with protecting our privacy in the first place. It doesn't make sense unless you have something to hide. And hiding something is like holding a weight on your shoulders. The feeling of lightness and relief that come with the knowledge that you do not have to hide anything is amazing. So much energy saved for better, constructive purposes! Unleash your inner kite runner and enjoy your lightness! Priceless. Continue reading

I desperately needed some help with the dust accumulating fast around the house to form balls. I guess next stage was mountains but I didn't wanted to probe my theory. So I met Lina. Lina is sweet, Thai and efficient. In less than 3 hours she marched through all possible corners and brought back the much needed light into my house. We happy together! I asked Lina if she needs any lotions or materials for the next time around. She looked me in my eyes and she said she needs "penis"!?! I rolled my eyes not sure if I have a bad hearing or a dirty mind. OK, dirty mind goes without saying but still! So I asked: what??? And Lina said: penis. So I said: what for? And she candidly replied: penis for windows. OK, if I would have a penis I could certainly find a better usage of it. This was puzzling so I asked Lina to spell it for me. Here she goes: [f-i-n-i-s-h] penis. Aha, I got it: Finish? Yes she goes, penis for windows. Here's the place where she needs the stuff for glass cleaning. For the next couple of days let's stay away from... Continue reading
