“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world”. (Lucille Ball)

HellO, WOrld!

What is LOVE? We put this question for thousands of years, but yet very few of us have managed to find the answer. 
They say it’s important to love your neighbor as yourself. But we really love ourselves?

 I have the strange feeling that very few have figured out how to do that. Relationship with ourselves is more lika a love-hate relationship most of the time, and that comes, I think, because we are so critical. And we practice this on us, first. And I know that from my experience, because I’m sooo critical with myself! I’m quite a monster, sometimes, but it’s not only my fault. The fault is in the stars, because I’m a terrible combination between the critical spirit of a Virgo and specific acidity of a Scorpio. 

 But I do not think this happens only to me. Around me, a lot of friends are unhappy. We all feel like we are suffocating in our own bodies, that we may look better or that we should be more brilliant in conversation.

We want something else all the time. Not only from ourselves, but also from the people around us. Our relationships are now very fast-forward. Who’s next ?,is the question that concerns us most.

Consumerism is the watchword even in the love area..

And then, what to do?

Love yourself! Take a deep breath and then realize that you are a unique being in this universe, which was created by a billions of factors. You live a nice amount of events and coincidences that nobody else has lived. And this is absolutely wonderful!  
And start to smile more, you never know who may fall for your smile, as Marquez said.

Maybe even you.

HellO, WOrld!

What is LOVE? Ne punem de mii de ani intrebarea asta, dar inca foarte putini dintre noi am reusit sa-i dam de capat si sa aflam raspunsul.Se spune ca important e sa-ti iubesti aproapele ca pe tine insuti.
Dar ne iubim pe noi insine cu adevarat?

Am straniul sentiment ca foarte putini am descoperit cum sa facem asta. Relatia cu noi insine e mai mult un fel de love-hate relationship, in majoritatea timpului, iar asta vine, cred, dintr-un prea mare spirit critic. Pe care ni-l exersam, pentru inceput, pe noi. Eu, cel putin, sunt ingrozitor la capitolul asta! Bine, nici astrele nu au fost prea prietenoase cu mine, pentru sunt o combinatie intre spiritul critic al Fecioarei si aciditatea specifica Scorpionului. Mi-e foarte greu chiar si mie sa ma suport. #imalittlemonster
Dar nu cred ca asta mi se intampla doar mie. In jurul meu, o multime de prieteni sunt nemultumiti. Avem cu toti senzatia ca ne sufocam in propriul corp, ca am putea arata mai bine sau ca ar trebui sa fim mult mai sclipitori in conversatie.
Ne dorim tot timpul altceva. Iar asta se rasfrange, evident, si in relatiile noastre. Care sunt, de cele mai multe ori, pe Fast-Forward. Who’s next?, e intrebarea care ne preocupa cel mai mult.
Consumerismul e cuvantul de ordine si la capitolul dragoste.

Si atunci, ce e de facut?

Love yourself! Take a deep breath si apoi realizeaza ca esti o fiinta unica in universul asta, la crearea careia au contribuit un miliard de factori. Esti o suma de intamplari si coincidente frumoase, pe care nimeni altcineva nu le-a trait. Iar asta este absolut minunat! Si mai ales, zambeste mai mult,  nu stii niciodata cine se poate indragosti de zambetul tau, vorba lui Marquez.
Poate chiar tu.
