"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Vocation


I have never written much about my work and experience. As I started my blog it was for me mostly a place where I could post some of my poetry and save my thoughts. But in time, as I came in contact with more and more people, I realized that it is important to speak about myself too.

I have worked many jobs in my past, not much in front of a quiet computer, but more directly with clients. My longest experience in Romania was of almost 6 years in logistics, a job that has been very demanding from all points of view. It was a great job if I think of the challenges brought every day, but it was a horrible job on the inner level. Of course I loved buying cheap and making profit for our multinational company. And also delivering fast and in good conditions when others could not deliver. I was dedicated and I worked much more than others. Yet there was always something that was missing in that job, but I could not really define what it was.

I have also worked in care with children and adults for other 6 years both in Germany and in Romania. So at some point in my life I took some time and asked myself if this would not have been my vocation because it was the work I loved the most.

In 2011, I have changed my life by coming in the UK. I have worked in health and social care, I have undertaken several levels of training, I have sacrificed a lot of my time for my job. Then I have also started working as a freelance copywriter. Now I understand exactly what was missing from my life. I have learned so very much from the people I worked with and for. Disabled people have been the most rewarding encounter, they cherish every gift in their life and have a huge respect and gratitude for all the little things they receive daily. I have learned with them humility, I have shared joy and love. I am now aware that we are all very small and fragile inside, but also that the human spirit is strong and amazing.

I am now evolving on my copywriter path, working and learning every day how powerful and wonderful writing the right words can be. Words can break or make businesses, lives, and causes.

I have changed my life because my inner voice was screaming that I could do more, that I can work something different. But also because I believe that the saying “Don’t wait for things to happen, make them happen” is very true.

At the end of a day, the most valuable thing for me is to remember the joy of the people I meet, the way we joke, the fantastic moments spent together, their incredible trust. Friends, clients, neighbors, co-bloggers, we are all interconnected. Showing people the beauty in them matters. Respecting people matters. Putting love in what we do matters. Remembering people’s names matters. Finding beauty in life matters. I am humble and grateful, every day for being given this wonderful life.
