Lust for Life

We’re a generation that struggles to get a house and settle down. We don’t like saving. We’d rather enjoy our youth and spend our money on travelling, experiences and too many drinks over the weekend. But you know what? Life is short. And it’s a lesson I’ve learnt again after the tragic event that happened in Manchester. It’s so sad and scary and just so unfair. What am I personally gonna do about it? Spread positivity and enjoy the privilege of being alive, healthy and free to enjoy this beautiful world. We’re so damn lucky.

You Are Stronger Than You Think You Are

I’ve made it a habit into reviewing my life every time I turn one year older and I usually am not afraid to share my thoughts with you on my blog. It’s been almost a month since I’ve turned 27 and realised I forgot about my good old habit. But no worries, today I’ve finally found the time to talk to you about what I’ve learnt this last year. And that is

You Are Stronger Than You Think You Are

What many people don’t know is that last year I decided to take on a very exciting journey that literally meant no security, no comfort zone, no nothing. I’m not gonna give you all the cheesy details, but I basically stopped everything I was doing and decided to reinvent myself. The biggest thing was to quit my secure job. Why? Because it just didn’t feel right. Was it easy? Hello no. Was I constantly tempted to go back to how things were? Hell yes. It was frustrating sometimes, very frightening especially at first but I was on a mission. And I stuck to it. It was the best decision I ever made and even though it wasn’t an easy journey, I feel like I’ve learnt so much in the last year, it’s just incredible. And by being this brave  (because this is brave, no modesty needed), I became way more confident and ready to take on new challenges.

I didn’t just leave my job, I decided to change my mindset. I decided to make the most out of my skills, experience and my goals. I decided to take it to the next level. Some of you might read this and think I must be high or something, but when you get that drive, that desire to do something great, then you’ll know what I mean. And if you have no desire, than you better find one, because you only live once.

Lucky

flowers girl andra doroltiIt was after 10 pm when I arrived home from work, on Saturday evening. I was tired and hungry, but excited to finally be home. He was waiting for me with loads of flowers put in all the vases and bottles that we had in the house. Now that was a surprise! But what he didn’t know was that even just one flower would have been enough. It’s the gesture that matters. And I’m a true believer of the expression – enjoy the little things. I am a dreamer and I get excited over a good cup of coffee, over a sunny day, over all these small things that simply make my day better. That’s why I’m lucky. I’m lucky because I get to enjoy each day and I prefer to focus on the good things. And Dan is the same as me, that’s why we make such a great team together. On Sunday I wanted to take some flowers with me, for the photos. Everyone was looking at me while I was proudly looking at him.

Sambata seara am ajuns in sfarsit acasa de la munca, obosita si moarta de foame. Era trecut de ora 22 cand am intrat in casa si el ma astepta entuziasmat. Toate vazele si sticlele goale care le-am avut prin casa erau pline de flori. M-am bucurat enorm.. am si uitat de oboseala! (de foame nu, normal!) Dar ce nu stie el e ca m-as fi bucurat si daca era doar o floare. Pentru ca gestul conteaza. Iar eu cred cu tarie in expresia – sa ne bucuram de lucrurile simple. Daca e soare cand ma trezesc, sunt extrem de entuziasmata. Daca savurez o cafea buna deja ma simt mai implinita. Pune-mi un filmulet cu pisici pe youtube si gata, mi-ai facut ziua! De-aceea consider ca sunt foarte norocoasa. Pentru ca am tendinta de-a ma bucura (poate prea mult, dupa altii) de lucrurile simple, de zi cu zi. Iar Dan e la fel ca mine, de-aceea facem o echipa asa buna impreuna. Duminica am vrut neaparat sa ma etalez cu cateva flori pe strada, pentru a face pozele pentru blog. Lumea se uita curioasa la mine iar eu mandra, inspre el.

Homecoming

nature

Finished my exams, so now I’m packing, I’m going home! There’s such a long time since I haven’t visited my place, that I cannot wait to be there already…to play with all my fluffy pets, to meet with my old friends, to go shopping with mum, to stay with my family on the terrace, enjoying the sunset with some delicacies on the grill, to sing and dance by myself in my dressing room ( I’m an undiscovered artist!) .. aaand the list goes on! I won’t be seeing Dan for a while, so we spent some time together today in the park.

Gata, in sfarsit vin acasa! Abia astept, mi-a fost dor de prea multe lucruri! E frumos aici, dar nu degeaba se spune ca nicaieri nu-i ca acasa. Dan ramane in Manchester, asa ca am propus sa ne petrecem ziua impreuna, in parc. Si ca sa ma asortez peisajului, mi-am pus niste floricele in par – ca o floare intre flori! 🙂 glumesc, glumesc.. V-am pupat! Am plecat sa-mi fac bagajul!

Cozy today

blue flowers spring

After a short visit to Uni today, Liz and I stopped in the park nearby to take some pictures. It’s quite cold.. but you can already see lots of flowers here and there, you can already smell the spring!

Dupa o scurta vizita la facultate, am mers putin prin parc impreuna cu Liz, sa facem cateva poze. E cam frig, ce-i drept.. dar deja au aparut multe flori, natura isi revine incet, incet.. se simte c-a venit primavara!
