A different Easter

lumanareI attended the Easter mass, at a small church located in a equally small village. Although I can’t say I’m much of a church goer, this time I went purely out of curiosity, to see what’s going on.

In order to skip most of the lengthy service, a few hours long, Continue reading

Is your age really your age? Think again!

 

razvan costea no.1

Today, as I was aimlessly surfing the infinite news that Facebook chose for me to see, with nothing new in sight and hoping for a “1” colored in red to appear on the top of my screen, something happened.

I got a friend request!

“Wonderful”, I said to myself, feeling refreshed. As I approved the request, immediately I Continue reading

“I don’t even have time to masturbate anymore!”


I don't even have time to masturbate anymore!Those words came upon me like a bolt of lightning. It happened recently, last Sunday evening, as I was spending time with a few friends, discussing this and that.

And no, my blog isn’t about sexual issues – just in case you were wondering. Do you want it to be about sexual stuff? Just kidding. Seriously, do you? Kidding again. Let’s move on. 🙂 Continue reading

Magic happens!


Razvan Costea - Magic happensLast evening I spoke at an event, in front of almost 100 people.

The topic, set by the organizers (5MS.ro) was “The break”, and I chose to incorporate it into a story about my life, and share with the wonderful people there how I found my true path in life.

On my way to the event I was pretty nervous, and I was struggling with fear of speaking in front of all these people. The difference is, whereas on different occasions in my past I chose to let that fear control me and give up whatever I was doing, this time I chose to act, in spite of it.

I knew that deep down inside I wanted to be on that stage, and that desire was stronger than the fear. Little did I know that life would reward me in the most surprising way for this decision. Continue reading

Getting ill – Good or Bad?


illnessYou may wonder: how can an illness be good?

And you may be curious to find out. Let me see if I can shed some light on your question.

The vast majority of us suffer from an illness of some sort. Be it something like allergies, obesity, constipation to more serious conditions, like diabetes, cancer or AIDS.

I have a vast history with illness, 20 years of suffering from a chronic gastro-intestinal disorder.

All those years of having it I kept wondering: “What is the cause of it?”

In my case, Continue reading

Does Education matter?


Most of the people I know only went to school for three reasons.education

First: because everybody does it and they don’t want to be at a disadvantage, second: it seems to be the normal thing to do, and third: because their future or present employer demands it.

It may be one more reason, and that is parents pushing them to do it, but that does not always apply.

Most of the great minds in our world’s history didn’t change the world because they went to school, but because Continue reading

The “power” of compromise


compromiseEarlier this year I had the most amazing experience while going to get my car repaired.

The car shop owner, a person who I know for about eight years, called me in his office to give me the estimate. He is a short fellow, not bad looking, age 39, with a bald spot, very energetic and a little overdressed for the business he is running.

Although I had known him for all this time, Continue reading
