This family trip has been great. I have always longed to bring my parents to Paris, show them around this city that I love, bring them to my favorite restaurants, show them my favorite spots......
But everyone plays a different role in a group, and each one always looks for something different. I was hoping to have more home-sweet-home talks, and just to spend time together. I'd have loved to have two more days to do that...... But short and little rewards will make me know how to cherish even more.
So I am again, alone, still a bit exhausted from all that I've done this summer. And my good friend suggested me to rest, to have some me-time, before starting to work again. Thank you my dear friend, without your message this afternoon, I would have started working straight the way.
So she suggested me to watch this very nice movie, the Match Point. This movie was exactly what I needed! The message behind is exactly what I need to understand at this moment, and the plot, terrific!
For cinema lovers, I'll let you discover this beautiful movie by yourself. Basically, it's about LUCK, the role of luck in our lives. Then I recall what Eldar Aliev, the Chief Ballet Master of the Mariinsky Theatre, told me when I was in Varna, the day before the prize presentation, he asked:
- Do you know what are the 3 elements to success?
- hmm..... hard-work?, I replied
- yes certainly, and then?
- the second element is talent, and the third one?
- it's LUCK.
Whether it's fair or not, whether we want it this way or not, Luck apparently plays a very important role in everyone lives. It's kind of confusing, it makes you feel weak, hopeless and powerless in front of this matter of luck.
Shall we just try our best within all that we can control, accept failures, and just follow the flow?
