How would it be if we would make things differently? (en-ro)

Contemplation…

I woke up one morning haunted by this word, which still goes around in my mind as I’m writing now.

How did I start writing? Why did I start this blog?

I was recently talking with a friend about my “vast” life experience as she convinced me to share my ideas with others ๐Ÿ˜€
It’s not that I’m old or I traveled more than others but, as she says, which I believe, my travel experience have a meaningful purpose.ย So here I am, attempting to have a bit of courage to share some things with you. I don’t know exactly how to start or what to say but, she told me, “That’s not the issue because it won’t bother you,” Is she right?

I’ll admit, I’m a little nervous so I may need your patience while I get my thoughts in order but in the end, I’m sure you’ll like it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Yet, I would like to first go back to this word friendship. What does it say to you? What comes to your mind when you hear it? I remember a high school teacher who defined friendship as, “One mind in two bodies”. This always amused my friend and I. Eventually we found that the description fit perfectly. ๐Ÿ™‚

Although, you may ask yourself, what does everything that I’ve said up to now have to do with my first word, contemplation?

Well, no matter if I’m visiting someone, visiting a place, or if I’m at home, I usually find myself falling into contemplation. Then I start thinking to myself, even presenting a thank you speech towards divinity and I am reminded of how grateful, blessed, and speechless I am in front of everything that’s taken place in my life.

I’m thankful that I have a family who supports me, the beautiful memories I’ve shared with others, and the friendships I’ve made with them that will last. This makes me happy!!

I’m so delighted that I can experience nature in all its’ splendor. I’m thrilled with the blue in the sky and the sea, the green grass, the flowers with their beauty and perfume, the blooming of the trees, the shining stars, and last but not least, the feeling and soft touch of the sand on the beach.

I admire the pretty buildings, the cheerful people, the joyful children playing and laughing. I wish those frowning faces will soon change and I especially hope that the kind people will be rewarded one day for their character.

As you can see, by all means possible, I refuse to just “live the moment” as the old saying, “Carpe Diem” advises. I invite you to do the same. Do not limit yourself to one moment but be ready to embrace more! Choose not only to exist in this crowded and hurried world, but let’s actually LIVE! Don’t just survive, but let’s live abundantly! Let us contemplate the miracles around us!

What do you say? Do you accept the challenge?

Ce-ar fi daca am face noi lucrurile un pic diferit? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Contemplare…

M-am trezit intr-o dimineata bantuita de cuvantul asta si inca se tot invarte in mintea mea acum in timp ce incerc sa scriu.

Cum m-am apucat de scris? De ce am inceput acest blog?

Recent vorbeam cu o prietena despre “vasta” mea experienta de viata capatata in numai ceva peste doua decenii. ๐Ÿ˜€ ย M-a tot incurajat sa impartasesc si altora de prin calatoriile mele, nu ca ar fi ele extraordinar de multe la numar, dar, spune ea, si cred si eu, de o insemnatate aparte. Asadar, iata-ma prinzand o farama de curaj. Nici nu stiu cu ce sa incep, insa mi-a spus ca nu-i asta o problema (si ca pot spune si asta pentru ca nu te deranjeaza), asa ca recunosc, am ceva emotii si poate dureaza putin pana imi pun ordine in ganduri dar, zic eu, merita sa-mi acorzi cativa stropi de rabdare, o sa-ti placa. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Pentru inceput, insa, as vrea sa ma intorc putin la cuvantul ‘prietenie’, ce-ti transmite tie? La ce te gandesti? Eu nu pot uita cum a definit prietenia profaย de romana din liceu, ca pe “o minte in doua corpuri”, expresie ce ne amuza de fiecare data astfel ca a devenit modul de a ne descrie prietenia noastraโ˜บ

Cu toate acestea, te intrebi poate ce legatura are tot ce am spus pana acum cu primul cuvant, contemplare? Ei bine mi se intampla de multe ori, fie ca sunt in vizita pe undeva, la cineva, acasa sau in vreo calatorie, sa cad in contemplare. Si atunci am un dialogย cu mine insami, sau mai degraba un speech de multumire catre divinitate, si-mi amintesc cat sunt de recunoscatoare, de binecuvantata si de fara cuvinte in fata a tot ce are loc in viata mea.

Si, in contemplarea mea, sunt atat de bucuroasa ca am o familie care ma sustine, ca am amintiri frumoase legate de prietenii ce au durat ani de zile si inca nu s-au incheiat.

Sunt atat de fericita ca pot vedea natura in splendoarea ei, ma las incantata de albastrul cerului, al marii, de verdele crud al ierbii, de parfumul si frumusetea florilor si pomilor infloriti, de stralucirea stelelor, de finetea nisipului pe plaja.

Admir cladirile ingrijite, oamenii zambitori pe strada, copiii fericiti din jur, le urez de bine celor mai lipsiti de seninatate si sper din tot sufletul ca bunatatea celor care ma trateaza atat de frumos sa le fie rasplatita!

Prin toate astea refuz sa traiesc doar clipa din binecunoscutul ‘Carpe Diem!’ Si te invit si pe tine sa faci acelasi lucru, nu te limita la un moment, ci imbratiseaza mai mult! Nu alege doar sa existi in lumea asta atat de aglomerata. Nu supravietui numai printre picaturi. Nu pluti din inertie sau pentru o clipa. Ci hai sa TRAIM cu adevarat! Hai sa traim din belsug! Hai sa contemplam minunile vietii noastre!

Ce zici, accepti?
