....



back to the beginnings...back to where it all started...deja vu and amnesia at the same time...moving on or going backwards?

Year in review


It's that time of the year when we all look back and wonder  if things could have been better or worse . They say there's always room for worse and we shouldn't challenge our bad luck. But there's always room for better and we should challenge our good luck..

All year long I've been having this feeling of bad Karma surrounding me and the more I had been trying to defeat it, the worse it would get . Kind of like a vicious circle ...trapped between my own desires and aspirations, my personal issues and the economic crisis that doesn't seem to come to an end, I must confess I never felt more of a loser.I guess we all have our ups and downs and at some point challenges may occur to test our ability to survive . So...New Year's resolution? just trying to keep myself above water.This is all I want.

Lean In


Last night I finished a book I wish I had found (or existed) 10-12 years ago. Maybe my choices would have been different, maybe I'd have achieved things I always thought I deserved but something had been holding me down. I'm not going to get into it, nor analyze chapters or review it. I'm writing this post mostly for myself in order to emphasize some of the  points which I found relevant to my life/career/situation/experience


  • as long as we don't allow men to run our households women won't be allowed to run companies;
  • the beauty of the " impostor syndrome" is you vacillate between extreme egomania and a complete feeling of "I'm a fraud! Oh God, they're on to me ! I'm a fraud"!
  • knowing your value and not being afraid to make the others acknowledge that;
  • successful negotiation means achieving what you want and continue to have people like you;
  • the importance of a MENTOR! Excel and you will get a mentor. I've met fantastic  people and definitely can think of them as mentors in  different aspects of my life but I have yet to meet someone to inspire me in my entrepreneurial endeavors....maybe I should start looking deeper into that;
  • how can I do better? What am I doing and I don't know? What am I doing and I don't see?
  • leaders should strive for authenticity over perfection;
  • don't leave before you leave!
  • make your partner a real partner;
  • the Myth of doing it all;
  • done is better than perfect!
If later is better than never, then this book has definitely given me some food for thought and valuable insights. I'm far from achieving my goals and currently going through a rough period but maybe keeping your head high, your options open and alertness "alert " is what I needed to hear to keep going and strive for a better tomorrow.I know I'm not the only one and there should be no guilt in following your dreams .
The end.

All for nothing

Hurry up now, don't you know that I'm waiting
For the way you will find to ruin it all
All that you're bending is all that I'm breaking,
For the way you will build is the way you will fall.

And I know.... that I will be ready....
Or I will be dead again...
I know in my head.
I know in my heart.
That I will be better,
Than I'd have ever been,
Or all that we had
Was all for nothing after all.


Hurry up  now, don't you see that I'm fading...
Into older man's grey and oblivious light.
Who would I be to forgive and embrace when
When your talk is as low as your head is high!
Is it all we live for, now I see you don't get it
When you call it a loss and I call it a win.


And I know... that I will be ready ....
Or I will be dead again...
I know in my head
I know in my heart.
That I will be better,
Than I'd have ever been
Or all that we had........
