It is all a matter of perspective

It is incredible how fast time goes by. I can’t believe we are in May already, where did the time go? It feels like yesterday it was New Year’s Eve.

I was thinking the other day how I’ve done nothing constructive this year so far. I have this terrible gift of belittling myself. On my list of failures: not writing much, not having booked an exotic holiday, not getting fit, procrastinating everything, all the time. I was about to slap myself, I am telling you.

But then the positive results of plenty of sessions of therapy kicked in and, with a bit of effort, I was able to see the lovely bits of my life. In 2015 I moved into a studio flat, I started working as an interpreter, I had a lovely holiday in Tenerife, I decided to move in with my boyfriend,viewed flats together and chose a pretty one bedroom at West Hampstead, put my flat in Romania on the market, finally cutting my ties with my mother land. Don’t I look completely grown up and accomplished when looking at my life like this? Moral: it is all a matter of perspective.

The most touching moment by far was welcoming at the airport one of the British survivors in Nepal, and having a cup of tea with him and his family, listening to some incredible stories. I admired his positive attitude and how he was making some of the things that happened to him sound rather funny. I would have probably came back with a huge PTSD if I were him.

But this is not about me or him, it’s about the Nepalese people that were left without nothing. I am kindly asking you to spare a fiver and donate it to a charity of your choice. It will not make a difference to you, but it will make a massive difference to them. In other words, please don’t pray for Nepal. Donate money instead.

P.S. My studio flat is up for grabs, if anyone is interested. Turnpike Lane, £750 pcm, bills included. Check the add here and share it to your friends.

    I’m with you it’s about the people of nepal who have no idea where they should sleep the next night and who lost all…. We donated immediately and I hope so much for more donations and helpers who will go to nepal to help build homes or streets…
