HellO, WOrld!

Few days ago I received an email from a friend, and he ask me a very simple question: When is the last day when you did something for the first time? Well, first I thought that it will be very easy to answer, cause I’m doing a lot of new things everyday. But are they really new? Or we are just pretending that we have scuch a great an exciting life, besides the fact that we are doing the same things everyday? Same job, same car, same friends, same phone, same Facebook everyday. Same car, same restaurants, same problems, same fake smiles, Nothing new. Nothing exciting. Boring.

But why is this hapening? Why we love so much our daily routine, even if we are not happy with that? Adults tend to conform to routine, at the risk of missing opportunities to grow and learn. Why? Because trying something new means possibly making mistakes, failing or wasting time. But it also means expanding horizons, fulfilling dreams, building confidence. So, when is the last day when you did something for the first time?

And now I have my answer. In November, when I went to a surf camp in Tenerife. That was 4 months ago.

That’s why I decided to change somenthing. First, I will accept the invitation from my friend, and I will learn how to create a floral arrangement at Passion For Flowers event, hosted by Purple Flowers.

I will take a bus and I will explore the city. This weekend I will forget that I have a car. (Sorry, BLU!!!)

I’m going to visit China Town. I’m sure it will be fascinating.

I need to try new tastes, so I will search for some exotic restaurants (I had enough pizza and pastas!). Or I will try some raw recipes.

I will buy a plane tiket for an exotic destination. TAP Portugal has a very good anniversary offer, so I’m thinking that a holiday on Copacabana beach in Brazil will be great.

What about you? When you will do something for the first time?

 

LOVE,

O.

HellO, WOrld!

Acum cateva zile am primit un email de la un prieten, care ma intreba: Cand ai facut ultima oara ceva pentru prima oara? Am crezut ca va fi super simplu sa-i raspund, pentru ca, nu-i asa, in fiecare zi fac o multime de lucruri noi. Dar sunt ele cu adevarat noi, sau doar pretindem asta, pentru ca viata noastra sa para mult mai aventuroasa si extraordinara decat e ea de fapt? Asta desi facem aceleasi si aceleasi lucruri, zilnic? Aceeasi masina, acelasi job, acelasi telefon, aceiasi prieteni, acelasi Facebook in fiecare zi. Aceeasi masina, aceleasi restaurante, aceleasi probleme, aceleasi zambete false. Nimic nou. Nimic extraordinar. Plictiseala.

Dar de ce se intampla asta? De ce ne place atat de mult rutina noastra zilnica, chiar daca nu ne face fericiti? E adevarat, adultii tind sa accepte rutina, pentru ca o opun intotdeauna riscurilor pe care orice schimbare le poate aduce. Teama de esec sau pur si simplu faptul ca nu vrem sa ne pierdem timpul cu ceva nou ne fac sa preferam ritmul si lucrurile cu care ne-am obisnuit. Chiar daca iesirea din zona noastra de confort s-ar putea sa ne imbogateasca, sa ne largeasca orizonturile si sa ne creasca increderea in noi. Chiar, voi cand ati facut ultima oara ceva nou in viata voastra?

Acum am si eu raspunsul. In noiembrie, cand am fost in Surf camp. Adica acum 4 luni!

De aceea am hotarat sa schimb ceva.  In primul rand, am sa accept invitatia prietenului meu si am sa merg la evenimentul “Passion for flowers”, unde o sa invat sa creez aranjamente florale de la specialistii de la Purple Flowers.

Apoi, in weekendul asta voi uita ca am masina. Voi lua autobuzul si voi pleca in explorarea orasului (iarta-ma, BLU!!).

O sa merg sa vizitez cartierul chinezesc. Ma tenteaza asta demult, asa ca sunt sigur ca va fi o experienta foarte interesanta.

Si pentru ca mi-e dor de niste gusturi noi, voi cauta un restaurant exotic. Sau poate voi incerca niste retete raw-food.

O sa-mi cumpar un bilet de avion spre o destinatie unde nu am mai ajuns pana acum. TAP Portugal are niste super oferte aniversare acum, asa ca imi surade nespus o vacanta pe plaja Copacabana din Brazilia.

Voi ce planuri aveti? Cand aveti de gand sa faceti ceva nou?

LOve,

O.
