Overconfident?

Processed with VSCO with g3 preset
I like this picture of me very much and I feel that it connects with my content

I read somewhere, something related to knowledge and youth, when both embedded in one single person. In lots of the cases this person looks (is) judgemental, knows enough things to make him/her dangerous and something else that I honestly don’t remember…

Ok, so basically hhhmmm… this is me and I try to keep this side of me under control. I have been way worse, and when I look back at myself nearly a decade ago , “Bloody hell, was I dumb!” and it puts a smile on my face. “Was it really me?” “How could I be so silly?”.

I still am a judgmental creature. “I am surrounded by a bunch of morons. A horde of complete, incompetent idiots.” See, this what I am talking about.

How do I schedule?

It’s not always that easy to keep up with our busy lives.

Work schedule. School or university schedule. Personal life schedule and so on. So many errands to run and sometimes it feels so little time, that we barely manage to breathe.

This post is not on how to schedule or what to schedule. Our lives are so dynamic that there is no way we can make a fitting guide to meet all our needs. What works fine for me today, won’t work tomorrow, the important thing is to have a few tips to make scheduling easier.

Professional You vs Personal You

Some of you are cringing, I can tell. Some of you are “pffff“-ing thinking that they have all figured it out, as for example “I keep my personal, personal!” or “I keep my professional and my personal lives separate. Period.

In my article Authenticity Online, I write about the matching of our virtual personalities and the real ones, which extends also a little to the professional personality, as when colleagues are present in our social networks spaces, or sometimes the “boss” makes his/her appearance, knowing what we are up to.

Let me tell you what I think:

Choose the layers of +

I will talk about my team!
Processed with VSCO with f2 preset
A team which I can freely rely on, no matter what, because it supports me in my good moments but mostly in my bad ones. A warm team that senses my feelings and tries everything to make the impossible, possible. A tireless team that puts layers of effort always, continuously and keeps moving forward and sometimes dragging me, when I am the one that should do the leading, but this team supports me even when I am almost giving up. A loyal team, not because these people follow me unconditionally, or because they don’t know better, but because they make the choice, every single freaking day to follow.
This team has been mine for a year now, yes mine, because these are my people and no one can take that away from me! They have been giving me satisfaction for all this time. They are fearless to speak up and always eager to give me their piece of mind, that’s how we are who we are. Challenges and changes have never looked so easy.
“Oh bring it on!” “Great, it’s not a piece of cake, but I can digest it just the same!”
There would be so much more to talk about, write down a word each day to describe my team,  pile up the papers and I would be granted with the layers of motivation.
Because me and my team, are INDESTRUCTIBLE!
Today I was reluctant to write anything at all, because I am not having the best time ever. But I refuse to complain about my job, because there are a lot of other important things to talk about and cherish, I can find my particle of positivity instead.  Today I am feeling down, but I still choose to be a Proton \oo/.

Can’t wait for:

To my dear friend M!
Cant_wait_for
Now I have also another story which is related to the importance of changes. I assume that when you think you know all the conditions of change and you might be assured or assure yourself that the change guarantees success and an evolution for the better you just can’t wait for it to happen…
A very dear friend of mine used to work in Albania, for almost 4 years whereas he had a family back in Italy, his wife and little daughter. Soon after, his son came to this world and imagine the excitement. Although he loved his job and he was also making good money out of it he missed his family. In the beginning he recognized that trade offs are unavoidable, so he had to keep going. But after a couple of years he confessed something that remained imprinted in my mind: “You know my life has turned into:
“Can’t wait for Friday to come to fly back to my family. And when it’s Sunday and I have to fly back to Tirana again, I find myself thinking again Can’t wait for the next Friday. My life has come to eternally waiting for Fridays!”.
