FIRST IMPRESSIONS MATTER

Post available in English and Romanian
Uneori cele mai pretioase lucruri din viata nu sunt cele materiale. Sau cel putin asta mi-a amintit o prajitura cu ravas la inceputul acestei saptamani.

Si cel mai bun exemplu pe care l-am primit a fost gestul unei doamne care mi-a tinut si mie umbrela in timp ce asteptam tramvaiul. Fix in ziua aceea ploaia m-a prins nepregatita dar gestul ei mi-a facut ziua mai frumoasa.

Sometimes, the most precious things in life are not materialistic. Or this is what a fortune cookie reminded me at the beginning of the week.

Recently life proved to me that the small things matter. A nice lady held her umbrella to also shield me from the rain. I was caught unprepared that day, I left my umbrella at home, but her gesture made my day.

BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE: A BREATH OF FRESH AIR

Post available in English and Romanian
Scriam aici acum ceva timp ca mi-ar placea ca in Bucuresti sa intalnesc cat mai multi oameni frumosi … la interior; cu suflet luminos care inca mai stiu ce inseamna omenia. Se intampla prea rar sa imi iasa in cale astfel de oameni. Ultima data am “patit-o” in tramvai, intr-o dimineata in timp ce ma indreptam spre munca. Am racit … destul de rau si tocmai atunci, in tramvai, inghesuita de zeci de oameni m-a apucat o criza serioasa de tuse.

Nu ai cum se eviti momentele astea si deja simteam multe priviri atintite spre mine, de parca nu mai vazuse nimeni om tusind. In timp ce ma pregateam sa cobor, o doamna tare draguta m-a oprit si mi-a oferit … un drops mentolat, ca sa imi mai calmeze tusea. “Si eu stiu cum e … lucrez cu publicul la un cabinet medical si … se intampla des” mi-a spus dansa cu o voce calda. Dupa ce mi-am revenit din surpriza am schimbat doua vorbe, i-am multumit si am plecat fiecare spre serviciu.

Asadar … multumesc inca odata pentru o gura de aer proaspat, din mai multe puncte de vedere!

I wrote some time ago that i would like to meet more often beautiful people in Bucharest … on the inside, that is; people with a warm heart that still know what humanity is. This does not happen often. Last time it happened on a tram, on my way to work. I had a really bad cold and I started to cough right there in the crowded tram.

You can’t avoid these moments … it’s something natural, but I was feeling some people staring like they never saw a person coughing before.My ride was almost finished, but until I reached the doors, a nice lady stopped me to offer … some mint candy to calm my throat. “I know how this feels, I work with people and it happens often”; she said in a warm voice. Afer I managed to brush off the surprised feeling, we started to talk for a bit, I thanked her and we went along our separate ways.

So … thank you once again for a breath of fresh air, from many points of view!

 

 

 

OAMENII CARE FAC DIFERENȚA / PEOPLE THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Post available in English and Romanian
Da, exista și oameni frumoși în București și lor voi încerca sa le dedic cât mai multe postări de acum înainte. Oamenii care absolut întâmplator iți fac ziua mai frumoasa cu atitudinea lor, un zâmbet sau o vorba buna. Orașul nostru are nevoie de cât mai multi oameni de genul asta. Yes, nice people really do exist in Bucharest and I will try to write more about them from now on. Those people who with no reason make your day better with their attitude, a smile or a good word. Our city needs more people like this.
