Let The Social Media Inspire You

So, basically yesterday night I was too busy to study for the driving licence exam that I couldn’t literally find enough time to write a proper blog post and, two days in a row at 6 am is definitely not my plan. Therefore I asked Betty to write it, based on Day 5 of Writing 101. Starting from a tweet, this is what she wrote…

Dunque ieri sera ero davvero troppo impegnata a studiare il manuale della patente per poter scrivere un articolo adeguato e, siccome due giorni di fila al computer alle sei della mattina non è esattamente il mio ideale di vita, ho chiesto alla Betty se poteva scrivere lei, partendo dalla richiesta del giorno 5 di Writing 101. Partendo da questo tweet, ecco cosa ha scritto…

Dear girls and boys, or maybe even to the elder ones,

I have to say I don’t really like this sentence. Very safe, but not beautiful at all. Not because I am a kind of holy woman, but because my experience is telling me right the opposite. For instance, I’m writing this article because of the man I have been living with for over a year.

She’s the daughter of my boyfriend, clever girl, nice however sometimes witty, but I’m learning to love her and most of all she’s make me understand more about myself. After the terrible 40, it’s a bit hard to change family, teenagers and children are more willing to adapt themselves.

One of the major points of the oriental philosophies says that nothing happens by change, if something or someone happens in your life it’s because they have to bring you some fresh air, an inner development.

It’s true. I’m learning to give before demand or expect to be given. It’s an important change to me, I have often asked or demanded before fully appreciating. Learning to make value of what you have and not of what you don’t have. To accept, not passively, but to accept.

I would like a lot from this new situation, particularly I’d like it to be authentic, a real exchange, a real sharing, to really be able to count on each other when you need to. Of course you need to feel the need, but some things are only noticed in part, every now and then, you feel that is something better, something more, not something less.

Feelings are complicated, not always understandable, often conflicting. And that’s fine. Even if sometimes I miss living alone, most of the times I prefer this chaos. However, if it happened, it means it had a precise meaning in my actual life.

So thanks to whoever that my house is not only a person and that person is not only me!

Cari ragazzi o ragazze o anche più grandi di così.

Devo dire che questa frase non mi piace per niente. Molto comoda ma per niente bella. Non perché io sia parente di un santone, ma perché la mia esperienza mi sta raccontando tutt’altro. Per esempio se non fosse per la persona con cui vivo da un anno, non mi sarei mai immaginata di essere qui a “postare” un articolo su di un blog.

E’ la figlia del mio compagno, ragazza intelligente, simpatica e alle volte un po’ spigolosa, ma sto imparando a volerle bene e soprattutto mi sta insegnando a fare dei passi su di me. Passati i quaranta non è forse facile cambiare assetto familiare, i giovani ed i bambini sono piu’ bravi ad adattarsi.

Uno dei punti fondamentali delle filosofie orientali spiega che niente ti succede per caso, che se capita qualcosa o qualcuno nella tua vita, è perché ti deve portare qualche novità, qualche cambiamento interno.

E’ vero. Sto imparando a dare prima di pretendere di ricevere o aspettarsi di ricevere. E’ un passaggio importante per me, ho spesso recriminato prima di apprezzare. Imparare a valorizzare quello che si ha e non quello che manca. L’accettazione, non passiva, ma accettazione.

Vorrei tante cose per questa nuova situazione, soprattutto mi piacerebbe fosse autentica, che ci fosse davvero uno scambio, una condivisione, un poter contare sull’aiuto degli altri in caso di bisogno. Certo bisogna sentirne il bisogno, ma forse per alcune cose ci si accorge di averne bisogno solo poco alla volta, se senti che infondo ti fa bene, che in fondo è qualcosa in piu’, non qualcosa in meno.

I sentimenti sono complicati, non sempre comprensibili, spesso contraddittori. E va bene così. E anche se alle volte mi manca il mio vivere la casa da sola, sono maggiori le volte che mi piace di piu’ così.  E comunque, se mi è successo, vuol dire che per la mia vita ora, aveva un senso preciso.

Quindi grazie che lamia casa non è solo una persona e grazie che  quella persona non sono solo io!


 

Have A Safe Journey!

Love,

Betty & Camilla

    Hi there!
    I honestly can’t think of any business that wouldn’t want their business in a tv commercial.
    However its really expensive and so untargeted! BUT How many sales or customers do you think you will gain if you had a commercial running when they were LOOKING for your business?
    My name is Steve and I am looking to work with a few businesses for an online commercial. Instead of being on TV, I want to put your business front and center with a video(commercial) on Google & Youtube in your local area. Not just 1. Not just 5. Not just 10.
    But a complete domination of your local market with as many video billboard commercials that it takes to dominate your area.
    How many new customers will you get if they search for your service or product and all they see are billboards showcasing you?
    I have a few spots open. To see proof of results and what it can do for you please go to http://accuratemediasolutions.info to see some sample results and how we can do the same for you.
