Conquering sadness.....

Tonight I am sad...and besides this, I am sick, I have fever and do not feel well...but this is life, all the bad things come together to make us feel worst. And all in between, we need to keep the head up and smile.Life will be better tomorrow.

Quote of the day  :     "The only real failure in life is the failure to try, and the measure of success is how we cope with disappointment " - Judi Dench

Bellow you have one of my favorite songs of all times.

When I was 7 years old I received for my birthday a "Queen Greatest Hits" Audio tape from my parents.....and I have been a fan ever since, so the bellow song will always in my heart, because I love it for  almost 20 years now, and I am not sure how,  but anything I do in life, I always find myself in  these lyrics:

So, getting ready for a loooong weekend work :)

How to cook Plum Dumplings (Knedle)

After a nice day spent outside, walking in the park ,as it would have been  a pitty to waste it lying in bed all day when there were 23 Degrees Celsius outside , I decided to prepare a great recipe that reminds me of my childhood ... "Knedle" as it is called in my home town.

Autumn fragrance...

I came across a very nice movie a few days ago , and the following phrase got stuck in my mind:

"Things will be alright in the end, and if they are not alright yet, then it is not the end"

It is a true fact in all possible ways, and we cannot argue about this. I have no statement against it, and yet, I am can things be right in the end , having no exceptions.....It is like wanting something that you know it is less than 1% chance you will ever achieve it, and yet....believing that things will be alright will bring a different end to it than it is already planned? I got confused, because leaving my optimism behind, we are realistic persons...and some things cannot be achieved, it is impossible, no matter how bad we want....(yes, there goes my optimism). There comes a time when we wake up from the dream and realize that... if the statement is completely true, then we will have no end to some very important facts in our life.

But yet, beyond this, I remember a dear friend that said something like this : "trust God if you don't trust yourself and you will succeed" (I do not remember exactly all the words in the phrase, but aprox)

Well, I guess he was right, I think we are debating too much about hypothetical quotes; because in the end, things will be as they have to be.... yes, we want things, we pray for things to be, to happen, sometimes they do, sometimes they don' is not the end of the world. We should stick to the faith....this is the only way to be able to say "Things will be alright in the end"

Leaving the "Fall Astenia" thoughts behind, I am sure you're all excited as the weekend just started. Looking forward to the recipe I will prepare and post this Sunday :)  It will be a premiere ;)

Indian Festival in Bucharest

Just a normal Sunday afternoon,too bad  it is raining a lot, but it is the middle of October so, we just have to get used to this. So, I've put on my glasses and decided to share with you all a small part of the experience I had this weekend with  the Indian Festival in Bucharest (IV edition).

Me,myself and I

The post today should have been about „Chocolate mousse”, a really easy and tasty recipe I’ve done today. Easy to do but I guess you can find the recipe all over the internet in different sizes or shapes, so, instead posting the „Sunday’s recipe”  I started to wonder about myself . When do we still have time to contemplate over us alone when this life is so crazy and the days pass so fast, we’re too busy with work and other daily problems that we sometimes forget about entities.

Utopia of life... were born ...and start growing up, you are happy because you do not know the difficulties of life yet, you go to school and make friends, later you graduate an important university , yet you have more friends who are always there for you ,you have a great family who supports you, you meet a nice woman/men always ready to give anything for you , you get married  ,  you buy a nice house , you drive a fancy car, you have a great job,you become the best in your field,  you have money,you have enough time to spend with friends, you have fame, some envy you for what you are, maybe you are very talented and you show it to everyone, you have the posibility to see the whole world ,you have/can have kids and live a happy life... you can be whatever you want and whenever you want ....and yet....there is that something....that you really want,from the bottom of your heart... that you would give anything you have in the present to get it, but nobody understands you, because you have a free spirit, and think different than others;  because something needs to change and yet you have no ideea how to achieve more...maybe your aspirations are too high ...what is important in life? having it all? what if being happy means something else, go to an island, live close to the nature, learn to new people, learn new things, return to the basics...what if things were different....why does this seem impossible sometimes and come everytime we have something  we really want, life gives us new opportunities and ,like always, we want more and more.

The answer is...follow your heart. Think about what you want and how you can achieve it without hurting the ones around you. Be free but in a carefull way. Some cross the line to be happy, and they succeed, some don't , as they care more about others that they are putting themselves on the second place,wodering for the rest of their lives "what if..."

True is, this is the utopia of life, it is a round circle, neverending story, you want something, you have it, and then you want more, because you know you can , because you are strong and because you deserve it.

The song bellow doesn't have anything to do with the utopia of life :) but I remembered it this week, so I am sharing it with you all as it has a nice message:
