EN: These days were a mixture of thoughts. Some colorful, alive and full of hope, others dark and with a sense of endless void. I realized that once I made it to the edge between winter and spring, I simply lost my patience and it seems that the sun, which I know for sure it will warm us soon, will never show it's face again. It's hard after a long winter, now when the air smells like spring, to endure the cold or the rain and I wish I would go to woods and don't ever go inside again. Each year brings times like this, but the feeling is so much stronger this year. Yesterday it was warm and I spent the whole day outside: I prepared the garden, planted some ruccola, lettuce and parsnip, than read all day long, gravitating around the sun. The feeling of void dissapeared after 30 minutes of oxygen and sunshine and my mood got better with every sip of fresh air I took. We need so much to spend time outdoors, in the wind, sun and rain and when I forget this, at the end of a day spent in the house I feel tired, consumed and lacking perspective. I just want to sleep. I believe that fresh air and oxygen are the best "medicines" and they charge our batteries, clear our thoughts and make us alive!

Cuvintele au puterea de a crea lumea din jurul nostru si orice gand rostit modeleaza realitatea si ne influenteaza relatiile cu cei din jur. Astazi, limbajul a devenit foarte complex si folosim multe cuvinte atunci cand comunicam, dar de multe ori transmitem atat de putin prin ele, parca am abuza pur si simplu de vocabular si functia vorbirii. Socrate aplica un algoritm foarte simplu legat de ce le spunea altora si ce ii asculta spunandu-i: informatia transmisa a fost verificata de cel care i-o comunica? este un lucru bun? ii foloseste sa stie acest lucru? Daca raspunsurile erau afirmative, atunci il interesa. Eu incerc sa pun in aplicare aceasta metoda si sa rostesc cuvintele atunci cand au sens cu adevarat.
EN: "What is known for sure is that for most of the native americans, the word has a hidden power, that it is suitable for it's meaning to be perfectly understood, spelled only when it is needed; (...) <
Words have the power to create the world around us and any thought we put into speech, shapes the reality and influences our relations with the people around us. Today language has become very complex and we use many words when we communicate, but most of the times we say so little through them, simply abusing this speaking function. Socrates had a simple algorithm that helped him filter what he told the others and what he wanted to hear from them: was the information verified by that person? was it a good thing? was it useful to him to know that? If the answers were yes, than he would be interested. I try to apply this method and speak the words when they mean something to me.

Experienta maternitatii e unul dintre lucrurile care mi-au adus prezenta si intelegere mai mare decat orice altceva trait si ma ajuta in fiecare zi sa imi depasesc fricile nefiresti si sa ma eliberez de gandurile care sunt mostenite si nu sunt cu adevarat parte din mine.
Asa ca azi sarbatoresc viata, clipa si bucuria!
EN: Today I turned 30 and part of the day was spent joyfully remembering all the years that went by, filled with wonderful experiences, special people, dreams, great places and many, many memories that will stay with me. I am grateful for the life I chose, I wouldn't change anything and I hope that was comes next will bring adventure and many precious lessons. I somehow feel that the great joy and conscious living are starting now, that all that I lived so far was the preparation for life and that from now on I will travel with my eyes open to the world.
Motherhood is one of the things that brought acknowledgment and understanding more than any other experience I had and it helps me every day to conquer the unnecessary fears and to break free from the thoughts that are not really mine.
So today I celebrate life, the moment and joy!
