I’ll call #Las Vegas “She” because it suits better with all the qualities I found in it and also with my vision for this story, it is a love story after all.
We’ve know each other for some time and we started courting each other about two years ago when we decided to give it a try, to see if we can live together. This year I made the step, as “She” couldn’t move from current location (logistical issues). Reception was over expectations: fireworks, limousine, champagne, whole nine yards.
After few days of laying together we started meeting other couples: “Store” family, “Restaurant” family, “Sightseeing” family, “Weather” family and many more, all receiving us, as a couple, in a very friendly manner as if we’ve known each other for years. Nice feeling!
About four months ago I found out that I was infected with hepatitis c virus. Not good news! After some additional tests I got even worse news, I was in stage 4, the final stage of the disease. My diagnostic was chronic hepatitis c with compensated cirrhosis. Doctors came to the conclusion that I was infected 30 years ago when I suffered an accident and needed blood transfusion. I got scared, badly, mostly because all the prognostics were not in my favor and living in Romania wasn’t an advantage either. I realized shortly after that there are a lot of people infected, that there are many who have the virus and don’t know about it (I was one of them), and how dangerous the virus is. Basically it’s a disease with no, or very mild, symptoms. It advances quietly in years without any sign (my case) and it can be fatal.
Before I lost weight I was fat 🙂 Before I lost weight I thought that it’s almost impossible to be slim again, no matter what kind of diet or starvation I would apply although I never kept a prescribed diet… I just borrowed some from my better “halves” who had passed through my life, or from my mom.
I’m 39 y, 5.9 ft and 165 lb, before that I was 39 y, 5.9 ft and 202 lb. The difference between was achieved in three months without any special diet or program prescribed and with no starvation! Magic, isn’t it?!
So Golf is big; it’s bigger than us. But golf is not what you’re thinking of. As U2 says in their song “Please” (ok, their song was about LOVE… and love, I’ll give you this, is “bigger” than golf).
But golf is big, very! I’ve been in love with golf since I’ve discovered it, back in my early 20’s. Since then I’ve played, I’ve hosted golf events, I published a golf magazine and I was one of the founders of Romanian Golf Federation (WOW, a lot of golf in my life J). With years passing I am now just a golf enthusiast and I love to play as often as I can (not a good player but a happy one).
Nothing… Or, nothing about it out of the ordinary. So, why bother write about it? Simple, we all have relationships and we are always in search for answers to various questions.
I have some relationships, friends, family, colleagues, etc… I’m quite special, aren’t I? 🙂
Seems like there are a lot of connections between them, more than I thought. What I want to point out is the attitude regarding others, how much I am alike with family, friends, colleagues, etc.?
With my family I am loving, protective, close, supportive, truthful and also demanding and rigorous.
N-am votat. Nu-mi pare rau, dar (dar-ul e cu bucurie), sunt de-a dreptul impresionat de efortul si hotararea de care ati dat dovada! FELICITARI!
Nu credeam ca un sentiment ANTI poate sa duca un popor atat de departe, sa uneasca oameni cu motive si motivatii atat de diferite, oameni ce provin din medii atat de diferite… toti impotriva! Impotriva!
Astazi a castigat un candidat care in urma cu putin timp era “prieten” de campanie cu cel care n-a castigat… strange love ar zice (canta) Dave Gahan.
I have been in sales for a long time and experience taught me that most of the “schemes” we apply come from us, from our life, and they are developed naturally within our growing process.
For example, we all remember when we were children and we “promoted” all our toys as the best ones. Our parents and friends were the best also.
With time, as we grew, we started to “promote” other things like food, clothes, places, etc. How many times have you told a friend that the best beaches are in “x” location, or the best steak they’ll eat is made by “y” restaurant? Continue reading
(As most of my writings I’ll keep it simple and not give you a deep personal insight. My goal is to validate my thoughts through you. I want to find others like me, to enrich my knowledge about life with your help and give back some of mine. So, everything below is just a draft that might become a theory.)
I like to think that we are. Naïve, you might say, but what if we are and we don’t realize it yet? And I’m not talking about flying or reading peoples’ minds, I’m talking about practical things like becoming better in our life, in what we do.
What if we are all born with all the necessary material we need in order to perform? Again, I’m talking about our daily tasks, nothing out of the ordinary. Continue reading
They don’t know it though. And that’s a good thing, I guess… I remember that when I realized I can “understand” life, during my “teenage era”, immediately I stopped learning and started assuming that I know everything (while I’m writing this I can’t help to wonder: have I matured?!).
