Change or Evolution

it is true, nothing last, nothing stays, everything changes and evolves. I like to say that things evolve, it means that they have an impact in your life and they keep staying even if under other shapes. And evolution to me sounds like a positive happening, like growth, improvement. Change u never know if it is in good or bad.

But actually you never know if it is an evolution till the next stage. While it happens you can’t always recognize it, it is just scary and sometimes exciting.

I see things continuously evolving around me, speeding up, time to run again?

what scares us…

Just thinking on what scares us the most…

is being without money?
is loosing our parents?
is being judged?
is being inadequate?
is loosing our values?
is loosing the person we love?
is being alone?
is loosing a job?
is not being able to find a job?
is not to be healthy anymore?

and the list could continue forever… i’m sure you could add many more.

I think the main mistake we make is that we focus too much on what we are scared of,and we strength our fears, how? we listen at songs that talk about lost love or sad topic, we watch movies in which there’s corruption and war, and monsters, scary stuffs, we play video games in which we can kill someone and laugh about it and we talk with friends about that guy who cheat on his girlfriend, we save money to enjoy the future and be safe in it and we forget to enjoy the present.

We choose those things, we chose how we live every second of our existence, we shape our days. Unfortunatly those fears are the main reason to each choice we make, take 10 minutes of your time and think about it.

If we could free our mind from fears we might be able to live in a more serene way, be confident about what we do, because that would be our choice, free of any fear of judgment (and not because we chose what everyone expected us to chose, but just because that is what we really want).

It takes a lot of efforts, but in the end it is probably worth it, i don’t know, I’m not different from you, I’m influenced by my fears as well so i can’t tell you how it feels to be free from them. And i still haven’t met someone who’s free from fears, but if i do, i will ask him.

In the meanwhile i can just train myself in the process of changing my fears into something positive. Learn how to approach any situation, as hard as it can be, and find happiness in the only place it can be found, inside me.

Another Video i found incredible, it is a commercial from pantene…. but it comes a lot of passion with it.

Why do we want to be like others? stay inside the box, of course that’s the easiest choice but in the end that’s not us anymore. We are unique, or we could be if we just chose to be as we truly are, accepting our nature at first and then live our life and sharing it with others.

Enjoy the video.

Just wanted to share this great video/concept.

I’m sure you’ll like it, i loved it

Everyday we have someone we want to thank, our partner for a nice message, a friend for that coffee talk that made us feel better and less alone in this world, our mum or that for always taking care about us, our brother or sister for a sincere laugh. Here is not about diamonds, that someone said last forever, here is about people giving us emotions that are truly staying forever inside us.

Who are you gonna thank today? Who’s the lucky person who’s gonna feel important and appreciated because of you?

Enjoy

My tea’s gone cold, I’m wondering why
I got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window
and I can’t see at all
And even if I could it’d all be grey,
but your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it’s not so bad,
it’s not so bad

I drank too much last night, got bills to pay,
my head just feels in pain
I missed the bus and there’ll be hell today,
I’m late for work again
And even if I’m there, they’ll all imply
that I might not last the day
And then you call me and it’s not so bad,
it’s not so bad and

I want to thank you
for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you
is having the best day of my life

Push the door, I’m home at last
and I’m soaking through and through
Then you hand me a towel
and all I see is you
And even if my house falls down,
I wouldn’t have a clue
Because you’re near me and

I want to thank you
for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you
is having the best day of my life

In this days i had to make a decision, something not very big but at the same time very stressing because it was a choice between something i really want to do and something i really have to do, and that small word that change the sense of the sentence, made the choice very hard.

In the end i had to go for the second option, i had to make a choice according to what i have to do. To help me in this i remembered a sentence someone told me not long time ago and it was almost like this “sometimes you just have to do what you have to do” and well i think that’s true. There’s no point in procrastinating or stress ourself too much about a decision when we already know what is it the best one and maybe the right one.

Just do it.

Any choice has his consequences but there’s nothing you can do about that, you never know exactly what may happen, if the choice you make is the right one or not, so why worrying so much about it? Is just stress you can save.

Just do what you have to do right now,be at your best today, don’t think to tomorrow more than necessarily or you’ll go crazy creating 100 of different scenarios and probably not good ones because, when we have to make a choice, the strongest feeling we have is fear and fear influences our vision and can lead us in the wrong direction.

We are driven by emotions and this is what makes things difficult, in any choice we make we put feelings, that’s not wrong, is just our nature, it is all about finding a balance between the 2.

If you think about it, most of the times is much easier to just do what we have to do, at work, in school, in relationships, in anything, as boring or annoying as they can be, some things just need to be done, sooner or later so just get them done. But something is sure, after that you will feel much better and released.

So today, just do what you have to do and tell me how you feel after that.


Just reflecting on how 97% of italian songs are Love Songs.

We are lately listening an italian radio in the office, from 9 till 18, and i never notice that we italians are so romantic, at least in songs. Real life… well that’s another story … but i think it is not so different in the end, and anyway is one of the good stereotypes about us.

Do you think italian are romantic people? Oh well, what do you think about italians in general? Would be great to read your comments about it, i bet you can say fun stuff, and i can tell you if it is true or not!!!!

If you are curious here you have the link, they also have international music.

Dora Salemi reflectionJust few minutes ago i was sitting in a very comfortable chair , drinking my morning coffee in one of the most inspiring place in Amsterdam, in the second floor of this building admiring the view on the canals, the tipical architecture of the city, people biking in a very relaxed sunday morning …

Everything looked so perfect and suddenly i saw a man going close to a trush bin and start looking for food inside there. I felt like shit, and i wanted to go downstairs and give him the sandwitches i brought for my lunch but he went away immediately, probably he couldn’t find any food left inside there.

Again this made me remember how much we should be gratefull for what we have, even for that sandwitches we complain about because it is the same food everyday, not very healthy and kind of boring, but at least we can eat, some others can’t even in this part of the “developed world” , even in Amsterdam where people seems not to have problems and the average salary is 34,746 (goss)per year.

That man wouldn’t be probably be allowed to enter this building because of his clothes and the way he looked like, and i’m inside here writing about him and you are probably sitting in a warm place reading this post while he probaly slept outside with just 0 degrees during the night.

This post was not ment to make you feel bad but just to make you reflect a little bit more on how really lucky you are and start appreciating it.

Have a good sunday, make in meaningfull, you have the power to choose.

Feeling like in Paris…

If there’s something that amazed me all the time about internet is its ability of shrink distances and time, of making you feel in Paris when you are in Amsterdam…
