I was saying that we should let ourselves amazed by people and the experiences that we have in our life.
Sebastian (Trainee from Germany matched by me) told me when he finnished his traineeship that "I want to thank you for many matched me so you have been the guilty one that brought me to Romania :-p...and you showed me the first impressions of at least you are the man of the first hour!"

and "Let me give you some things on your way, try not to be so sad about bad things or too excited about good things...bad stuff is happening...but even the aiesec-thing will not kick you down...good stuff also happens, and it is important to enjoy it but when it is over you cannot do anything against it...just live your life and try to make the best out of it.
You will have many good thoughts about us trainees so take them in your mind and remember when you feel goes on things, new people, new experiences..."

The last days of the year I spent with friends that made me enjoy the adventure of living ..I feel lucky to have friends. I was thinking that I have a huge network of contacts and every person helped me and teach how to live my life at high volume with my smile on my face. Every person we meet enriches our life experience.

I would like to thank you all for being part of my life , for the fact that you made my life more interesting!

2006 was full of amazing people that were part of my life and I'm waiting anxiously for new experiences, new things , new people .....the NEW YEAR!!!

Happy new year!!!

Paulina is leaving

Today it's a sad day because Paulina(the mexican trainee of AIESEC Iasi) is leaving. Her traineeship it's over. She was the first trainee this year that arrived in Iasi and she spent 9 beautiful months here. This 9 months were full of parties , crazy weekends, cooking nights. I will never forget Paulina because she was the one that made us enjoy the adventure of living and brought in Iasi the Latino spirit.
On friday night it was a good-bye party for Paulina and Sebastian (trainee from Germany matched by me who will leave Iasi on 14th) and I had doubts if I should come because I'm not in AIESEC anymore. Paulina told me: "come on should come ...pana mea were part of my experience. Don't care about people just come for me" .....
Touching words that meant a lot for me because it's great to know that I had an impact on somebody else life and that I was part of her experience. I hope someday i will have the chance to visit her and Marco (other trainee from Mexico) because they are true friends. I feelt them very close and they thought me to live my life at high volume and smile with my heart. There were 9 months in a multicultural environment , meeting people from countries like : Argentina, Italy, Turkey, Czech Republic, Hong-Kong, Spain , France, Danemark, Germany , Ukraine, etc.

I will miss you Paulina and I will never forget you!

I will miss the crazy weekends, cooking nights, Qvinta nights, pubs nights.

But seen you soon!

Everybody's free

Everybody's free to smile, to fly and dream big.Somebody was saying to me that life is the sum of all the shiny and dark moments, of happy and sad ones, of all the people we meet and experience we pass.She told me that the best wishes that she has for me is that I must live 100% every piece of this big puzzle that life is composed of.

We should grow by adding every piece but the most important thing is to remember everytime only those moments that make us smile.

We should let ourselves amazed by people and the experiences that we have in our life.The future belongs only to those that have the hands painted by watercolour, of those that have the power to paint their dreams on cloth reality. Only one thing can prevent the brush to send away the fear of failure. This thing is to smile everyday and to enjoy the adventure of living. Carpe diem principle

Ilinca was saying "A day without smiling is a wasted day". That's true ...and that's what I was trying to do in the last 6 years. I had great moments and every experience was something different that made me enjoy the adventure of living. Every experience I passed was my own learning circle and was part of the big puzzle that life is composed of. As you see I'm more reflective on this message because it's the end of the year and I must analyze if this year was good or not.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth.
Oh, nevermind, you won't understand the power and beauty of your youth until they've faded, but trust me in 20 years, you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked. You are not as fat as you imagine.

Don't worry about the future, or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum.

The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind: the kind that blindsides you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Don't be reckless with other people's hearts; don't put up with people who are reckless with yours

Don't waste your time on jealousy
. Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.

Remember compliments you receive; forget the insults. (if you succeed in doing this, tell me how). Keep your old love letters; throw away your old bank statements.

Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives; some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't. Bold

Get plenty of Calcium. Be kind to your knees -- you'll miss them when they're gone.

Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll divorce at 40; maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary.

Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself, either. Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else's.

Enjoy your body: use it every way you can. Don't be afraid of it or what other people think of it; it's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.

Dance...even if you have no where to do it but in your own living room.
Read the directions (even if you don't follow them

Do not read beauty magazines; they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents; you never know when they'll be gone for good.

Be nice to your siblings: they're your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but what a precious few should hold on.

Work hard to bridge the gaps and geography and lifestyle, because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Respect your elders.

Don't expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse, but you never know when either one might run out.

Don't mess too much with your hair or by the time you are 40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it.

Advice is a form of nostalgia; dispensing it is a way of wishing the past from the disposal-wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts, and recycling it for more than it's worth.
