Hopes and dreams

Hope and dreams....these are all we got when things go rough between day and night, when sun seems to fade away even if we see it more bright then ever,  when we cannot see the moon even if it is right in front of us .  Because life was not made to be fare, to be nice or easy...life was made to teach us something and give us all a purpose...we are all on this planet with a well defined aim.

We always hope for better and wish to succeed, to be the best, to climb the highest steps....well....

Early Christmas Spirit

Finally December, my favorite month .Some say it may be because of the holidays, some because of the sence you get when wondering around the street ,seeing lots and lots of sparkling lights and decorated trees.
I say this because , it is only 3rd December and I am allready so Happy :)

Yes, this must be it. Happiness has different formes and shapes, you may be happy from small or big reasons , you may seek happiness where you never thought before and also find it everywhere when you least expect. I found the hapiness this week since the first hour of this morning :)

As many people do not know where to search for happiness, some have too much and cannot apreciate the important things in life. Yeah, back to the Utopia of life :) Neverending circle.

Still waiting for the snow, but the holiday spirit is allready here.Listening to Lana Del Rey  - Serial Killer  , and drinking a hot chocolate .... and the happiness ? well....it is here... cannot ask for more right now

Late summer thoughts

It's been a while since my last post ... it is true.
Well, I have been very busy with work and Home improvements ... But because I am really happy today that my new dressing closet has arrived  :) , will share with you some of my Autumn thoughts.

Autumn is actually the beginning of the end ....of the summer of cource. It gets colder and colder, trees loose their leaves, everything is chaotic. I love this season for its colors, yellow and red colors everywhere.Some people get depressed during autumn because of the changes .  I actually do not have time to think anymore :) I belive there is something that is sucking up all my thoughts lately.... which is not a bad thing, but anyway...this weather takes my thoughts at a  poem I wrote  last year,  starting like this :

"A flight above the world to see,
Beyond my biggest fears to be
I stay down...on my knees...and pray
To never let you go away" 

It is actually my favorite poem I wrote so far... with many verses , a nice romance in the shadows as some may say called "Just Strangers " . But as I had good critics for it and  because it is so important for me , I cannot share it on blogger  :)

Anyway, holiday season is near :) I heard this sentence more that 10 times this week.But I am anxious for that great period to come.

Bellow you have a nice song remembering of the summer, "Vara Rece" ("Cold Summer").Any season may be, good thoughts should always follow us.



Peace and love my friends!

Bulletproof

We sometimes feel the past among our present, we don't want it, but we cope with it, we have to let go to be able to move on, but we cannot .It is like the air, being indispensable,everything hurts without it. I guess maturity means sometimes to learn how to deal with life without letting go of the past completely, considering it part of what made us become who we are today.No matter how bad, or good, or how many regrets there are, it was there and it will always remain somewhere deep in the history of our existence.

Conquering sadness.....

Tonight I am sad...and besides this, I am sick, I have fever and do not feel well...but this is life, all the bad things come together to make us feel worst. And all in between, we need to keep the head up and smile.Life will be better tomorrow.

Quote of the day  :     "The only real failure in life is the failure to try, and the measure of success is how we cope with disappointment " - Judi Dench

Bellow you have one of my favorite songs of all times.

When I was 7 years old I received for my birthday a "Queen Greatest Hits" Audio tape from my parents.....and I have been a fan ever since, so the bellow song will always in my heart, because I love it for  almost 20 years now, and I am not sure how,  but anything I do in life, I always find myself in  these lyrics:



So, getting ready for a loooong weekend work :)

How to cook Plum Dumplings (Knedle)

After a nice day spent outside, walking in the park ,as it would have been  a pitty to waste it lying in bed all day when there were 23 Degrees Celsius outside , I decided to prepare a great recipe that reminds me of my childhood ... "Knedle" as it is called in my home town.

Autumn fragrance...

I came across a very nice movie a few days ago , and the following phrase got stuck in my mind:

"Things will be alright in the end, and if they are not alright yet, then it is not the end"

It is a true fact in all possible ways, and we cannot argue about this. I have no statement against it, and yet, I am wondering....how can things be right in the end , having no exceptions.....It is like wanting something that you know it is less than 1% chance you will ever achieve it, and yet....believing that things will be alright will bring a different end to it than it is already planned? I got confused, because leaving my optimism behind, we are realistic persons...and some things cannot be achieved, it is impossible, no matter how bad we want....(yes, there goes my optimism). There comes a time when we wake up from the dream and realize that... if the statement is completely true, then we will have no end to some very important facts in our life.

But yet, beyond this, I remember a dear friend that said something like this : "trust God if you don't trust yourself and you will succeed" (I do not remember exactly all the words in the phrase, but aprox)

Well, I guess he was right, I think we are debating too much about hypothetical quotes; because in the end, things will be as they have to be.... yes, we want things, we pray for things to be, to happen, sometimes they do, sometimes they don't...it is not the end of the world. We should stick to the faith....this is the only way to be able to say "Things will be alright in the end"

Leaving the "Fall Astenia" thoughts behind, I am sure you're all excited as the weekend just started. Looking forward to the recipe I will prepare and post this Sunday :)  It will be a premiere ;)





Hugs,

Indian Festival in Bucharest

Just a normal Sunday afternoon,too bad  it is raining a lot, but it is the middle of October so, we just have to get used to this. So, I've put on my glasses and decided to share with you all a small part of the experience I had this weekend with  the Indian Festival in Bucharest (IV edition).

Me,myself and I

The post today should have been about „Chocolate mousse”, a really easy and tasty recipe I’ve done today. Easy to do but I guess you can find the recipe all over the internet in different sizes or shapes, so, instead posting the „Sunday’s recipe”  I started to wonder about myself . When do we still have time to contemplate over us alone when this life is so crazy and the days pass so fast, we’re too busy with work and other daily problems that we sometimes forget about us....as entities.

Utopia of life...

...you were born ...and start growing up, you are happy because you do not know the difficulties of life yet, you go to school and make friends, later you graduate an important university , yet you have more friends who are always there for you ,you have a great family who supports you, you meet a nice woman/men always ready to give anything for you , you get married  ,  you buy a nice house , you drive a fancy car, you have a great job,you become the best in your field,  you have money,you have enough time to spend with friends, you have fame, some envy you for what you are, maybe you are very talented and you show it to everyone, you have the posibility to see the whole world ,you have/can have kids and live a happy life... you can be whatever you want and whenever you want ....and yet....there is that something....that you really want,from the bottom of your heart... that you would give anything you have in the present to get it, but nobody understands you, because you have a free spirit, and think different than others;  because something needs to change and yet you have no ideea how to achieve more...maybe your aspirations are too high ...what is important in life? having it all? what if being happy means something else, go to an island, live close to the nature, learn to swim...meet new people, learn new things, return to the basics...what if things were different....why does this seem impossible sometimes and yet....how come everytime we have something  we really want, life gives us new opportunities and ,like always, we want more and more.

The answer is...follow your heart. Think about what you want and how you can achieve it without hurting the ones around you. Be free but in a carefull way. Some cross the line to be happy, and they succeed, some don't , as they care more about others that they are putting themselves on the second place,wodering for the rest of their lives "what if..."

True is, this is the utopia of life, it is a round circle, neverending story, you want something, you have it, and then you want more, because you know you can , because you are strong and because you deserve it.

The song bellow doesn't have anything to do with the utopia of life :) but I remembered it this week, so I am sharing it with you all as it has a nice message:


Enjoy!

My Poem...

New week, sun is up , so , I decided today to post on blogger  the last poem I wrote  ,during my summer vacation this year (yeah, I know, it took me 1 month to decide  if I should post this or not) .  It is shorter than my usual poems, but it is a strange combination of feelings .You will notice a special and in the same time,different shade in it.

But the important thing is that I found the inspiration  (yeeey)  ...I usually have to be upset or sad to write , my close ones know this :)

As I allready received some good  feedback about it , I am ok with sharing it to you all ,waiting for the impressions (Especially from my dear coleagues from work who requested new poems :)  )

So, here it is , random title of the poem (until I find a better one) ,  Hectic :  (click read more to read  it)

...Where there is desire there is gonna be a flame ... and where there is a flame someone's bound to get burned…But just because it burns doesn't mean you're gonna die…You've gotta get up and try try try...

Chicken with Gorgonzola sauce

This Sunday I decided to  cook one of my favorite recipes , Chicken with Gorgonzola Sauce, a perfect Italian taste for the beginning of this fall:

It's relatively easy to prepare , you just need to use the following ingredients:

Words...

...if you search for a deffinition, you will see that a Word  „is the smallest element that may be uttered in isolation with semantic or pragmatic content (with literal or practical meaning)”.

Why is it that we talk so much? It’s something like wanting to share everything with someone, tell them (him/her) what we feel , wanting them to be part of our experience and in the same time... do not let them know our fears and flaws, so we can look strong and powerfull in front of everybody even if we are hurt, we are down,we have so many problems...

We talk each day with so many people, at work, while shopping, with our family, with our friends, each time words come out differently, depending on what we want to express. (read more)

But there is another category of people we talk to...with whom we cannot pretend to be someone else, when we share our deepest secrets, speak about anything  and do not feel bad by doing so, to  which we have no fear of sharing and....here comes the best part....with which we talk so easily that we do not feel time passing by.  These are the special ones, if you search around you , you’ll be surprised that there are not too many.

And why do they stay around us when we have so many problems and talk so much each day ? Well, they just do...because we are part of their life and they are part of ours ... cannot deny it, it is a true thing.

Words...no matter the language, they express exactly what you want them to...bringing people closer one to another..seems insignificant but in fact, words define us, and if you use them carefully, you may succeed...

Below you have a really nice song by Anna Nalick defining love in her own words :)

Enjoy!

Time.....

...a great factor involved in our lives, struggling to compete with our desires and hopes and in the end, defeating our plans with just seconds before trying to complete them.

Time...comes and goes, it is never enough, it is always following us with just one step behind, and most of the times, exceeds us. Why isn’t there enough time, why is it so volatile...why does it feel like it is less and less time for anything ?

True fact is that we can make time to do everything we want... if we really want to , we can force ourselves to fight it and conquer, but for this , we have to really want to achieve something,and this means...from the bottom of the heart.

No, it is really wrong to leave yourself behind for the joy and happiness of others, if you want something, do not wait forever, time is flying, it comes close to you ,round and round, smiles at you and then....it is gone before you know it. There is nothing that can stay in your way when you are decided to do it, try to liberate your spirit and think outside the box .

If you want to fly, go and rent a plane/helicopter/paragliding ...and fulfil your dream, if you want to dive, go and dive into the deepest ocean and see all its mysteries, if you want to discover the world, do not waste your time on shopping city breaks, there are so many exotic destinations, beautiful places that you never dreamed they exist ...go there, see it and learn from it that life is too short to wait forever for something to fall from the sky ... Or at least this is what I would /will do.

We are so small and yet so big, as we have the power to decide, and time.... time can be defeated, just belive in yourself and remember that time flies, it is not waiting for you to have courage to lift up, to speak, to run or hide, but when you decide to do it, you will notice that all the nature will conspire to help you accomplish your dream. As odd as it may seems, this is true.

So, what are you waiting for? Remember time is flying...

Home cooking

Today  I cooked a mediterranean recipe, just to remind me of the summer days that are allmost gone, Beer-battered fried calamari rings ...it is actually a receipe from Jamie Oliver, but in the end it turned to be really tasty next to the horseradish sauce.

Thoughts

There will always be someone...that someone interesting that makes the life more vibrant each and every day, could be the person that sings in a band , could be the new lab partner, could be a total stranger that you see every day in the metro...and also, it could be your coleague, the good guy always willing to help you asking nothing in return... tall or short, fat or slim.... the thing is...there will always be that someone who is making your days brighter and nicer ... he is there ,somewhere next to you, just that you need to see it, and maybe then you will realize that your priorities in life should be different.

There are many people upset with life , searching in vain for their soulmate, some get married but never get to know real love, even if at the beginning they feel like it, everything appears to be just a flame of passion, which gets lost with time. The truth is that no one can say exactly if a soulmate exists until (and if) they find it , I belive that if you are taking the right decision at the right time, you can get cought up in the vortex of life, where only the strong ones manage to survive, couples break up, families get torn apart , just because you made a cautious decision some long time ago, and followed „the right way” instead of following your dreams and your heart. You should take risks in order to be able to achieve what you really want.


Yes, this is an utopia of life, one day you feel you’re the king of the world and the next thing you know, you fall deeper then you were when you started to climb the steps. What to do then? Well... you have to keep walking, never give up, be a fighter, indeed life is hard sometimes, and most of the times all the bad things come together, tragedies happen all the time, you begin to think that you were cursed,that life has no meaning, that you will never become what you want and the whole nature is plotting against your existence.... you feel so small ...but you don’t realize that actually there is someone....someone who is willing to take a chance and share your problems, not to follow the rules ,and to help you overcome this battle you have inside....


Just look deeper...For every problem there is a resolution, after every storm the sun will rise, after every tear a smile will come. Just think of it and take the chance, to avoid asking yourself „what if” in the future.

Intro

To express yourself trough words is a matter of being,you can be somebody on the outside but on the inside you can think differently.Why do people start blogging? I used to ask myself that ,and I reached the conclusion that for some of us, being someone known by everyone else it's not enough.

The poems are a way of expressing the inside feelings at a certain time.Why they appear, I honestly don't know,but who asks an artist why did he created a masterpiece, they are all wondering who was the muse...

Well, the muse may be you ...it's just that you need to figure it out yourself :)
