Finding the good light takes time

Seeing the good in the world, beyond the harsh, the rotten, the toughness, is not an easy task and it does not always come naturally. It needs kindness, positivity, modesty and at least a little hope. Choosing to remain polite, empathic and dignified no matter what unfairness or disrespect you face doesn't come for granted. … Continuă să citești Finding the good light takes time

Urmele trecerii timpului.

Timpul fuge din ce in ce mai repede, nu ne mai ajunge. Sunt prea multe de facut, nu mai e timp de iubit in thina, de jucat fara limita. Maturitatea vine cu grija pentru implinire si cu presiunea lucrurilor care "trebuie facute". Avem acelasi timp toti de pe lume. Acelasi numar de ore intr-o zi, acelasi Pamant care se invarte in jurul Soarelui osciland intre zi si noapte. Si totusi, unii dintre noi par sa lase urme mai adanci, trainice in timpul prin care trec si altii plutesc nehotarat prin el. Oare ce ne face atat de diferiti?

12 Rules of Life: An Antidote to Chaos, by Jordan B. Peterson #BookReview

Reading the 12 rules of life is definitely an experience: it's not just a personal growth collection of commandments, it is a complex encounter between faith, religion, science and anthropology. It's blunt, rough, radical and critical. It's not an easy read but a necessary one. It's like the "much needed evil" that shouts us upwards to self-awareness.

Mom and dad are both in the kitchen plotting around the already too opulent Christmas dinner festive menu, in order to fit another two-three extra dishes in between the dozen traditional courses already cooked and stored. If … Continuă să citești Jingle Spirit: the story of a Christmas wonder

5 reasons you should re-read your favourite books

I found one of my first books read in English pn the book shelves a few days ago and decided to read it again. I admit I already had this habit of re-reading favourite novels or very useful personal/professional growth books, so this is not a new experience, but it really got me thinking about … Continuă să citești 5 reasons you should re-read your favourite books

A lesson for meaningful productivity: You Need to Practice Being Your Future Self

This morning's great reading for me came from one of the authors of #HBR, TED speaker and coach Peter Bregman: "You need to practice being your future self." It touches the familiar story of “being busy”, which is not the same as being productive. Learning to choose between what needs to be done and what … Continuă să citești A lesson for meaningful productivity: You Need to Practice Being Your Future Self

Little Red Perfect Girl

Rays of sun glimps­­e through the curtains as two dark brown eyes are struggling not to open yet. „Wake up right now, Jo! It’s time to get up.” It’s too early. And she’s cold. Even in these early summer days when her mom, dad and little brother are already wandering around in shorts and T-shirts … Continuă să citești Little Red Perfect Girl

One small life lesson from nature

These days I received a lovely gift from friends: a DYI terrarium. Took me about 30 minutes to set it up and those were some mindful brain relaxing 30 minutes. This micro nature corner niw living in a bowl has taught me a small yet so powerful lesson: there is no perfect way to build … Continuă să citești One small life lesson from nature

The Journey through Anxiety: what it is, why it’s here and growing over it

Have you ever felt like something wrong is about to happen, even though everything seems fine, at the surface of your life and day, and you  can't find an actual real reason to worry?
