Am vazut ca postul de televiziune ProTV din Romania, cu ocazia zilei nationale a Romaniei si cu ocazia “zilei l0r de nastere”, au lansat o noua campanie. Anul acesta tema este “De ce iubim Romania?”. Mi-a placut foarte mult intrebarea, mi-a mers exact la suflet si am inceput sa ma gandesc “de ce oare iubesc eu Romania?”. Locuiesc in Norvegia de aproape 7 ani, dar asta nu cred ca ma face norvegianca nici acum nici mai incolo… Sa nu intelegeti gresit: imi place Norvegia foarte mult, imi plac oamenii, imi place cultura lor speciala scandinava, imi place felul lor de a fi si sunt recunoscatoare pentru tot ceea ce Norvegia imi ofera… dar, Iubesc Romania, Iubesc oamenii din Romania, Iubesc traditiile si cultura romaneasca, Iubesc felul ei de a fi si ii sunt recunoscatoare Romaniei pentru tot ceea ce mi-a oferit si inca imi mai ofera..

Romania e locul de care apartin, Romania e locul unde este toata familia mea si toti prietenii mei, Romania e locul de care mi-e dor, Romania e locul de unde ma trag, Romania e locul unde ma intorc cu lacrimi in ochi, Romania e locul care m-a format, Romania e locul care mi-a oferit necazuri, suparari, dezamagiri, frica, teama/bucurii, emotii, fericire, implinire… Romania e cea care e responsabila de cum sunt eu in ziua de azi, de cum gandesc si cum ma port pentru ca Romania mi-a oferit totul. Daca la un moment dat am simtit ca ceea ce imi ofera Romania nu mai este suficient, nu ma mai implineste si nu ma mai face fericita este tot datorita ei, pentru ca Romania m-a facut suficient de desteapta sa imi au seama de asta, sa stiu ce mi se potriveste si ce as vrea sa fac, iar la final mi-a dat libertatea sa pot alege… Romania este ca o mama smechera: te accepta – te invata – te creste – iti este prieten – te necajeste – te “fericeste” 🙂 – incearca sa te tina langa ea, dar nu te forteaza oricat de mult si-ar dori sa stai acolo si sa o ajuti… iar la final, te lasa sa pleci, daca asta iti doresti cu adevarat.

Romania mi-a dat aripi sa pot zbura cat mai sus si cat mai departe pentru ca prapadita de ea stie: oriunde as merge si oricat de departe as zbura tot la Ea imi este gandul, tot la Ea simt nevoia sa ma intorc si Ea stie ca este tot timpul cu mine… Cred ca de asta iubesc eu Romania, pentru ca pur si simplu nu pot sa nu O Iubesc… La Multi Ani Romania!

I saw that the TV station ProTV from Romania, with the occasion of the nation day of Romania and their own “birthday”, launched a new campaign. This year the theme is “Why do we love Romania?”. I really liked the question, it went straight to my soul and I started thinking “why do I love Romania?”. I have been living in Norway for almost 7 years now, but I guess this does not make me Norwegian, neither now nor later… Don’t get me wrong: I really like Norway, I like the people, I like their special Scandinavian culture, I like their way of living and I am grateful for everything that Norway offers…. but, I Love Romania, I Love the Romanian people, I Love the Romanian traditions and culture, I Love its way of being and I am grateful to Romania for everything it offered and is still offering…

Romania is the place I belong to, Romania is the place where my whole family is and all my friends, Romania is the place I miss, Romania is the place I come from, Romania is the place I go back to with tears in my eyes, Romania is the place that formed me, Romania is the place that offered trouble, anger, disappointment, fear, joy, emotion, happiness, fulfilment… Romania is the one responsible for what I am today, for how I think things and how I behave because Romania offered everything. If at a certain moment I felt that whatever Romania has offered was not enough, that it does not fulfil my needs and make me happy, it is also because of it, because Romania made me clever enough to realise that, to know what suits me and what I should do, and in the end it gave me the freedom to choose… Romania is like a cool mom: she accepts you – teaches you – grows you – she is a friend – makes you sad – makes you “happy” 🙂 – tries to keep you around, but does not force you as much as she would like you to be there and help… and in the end, lets you go, if that is what you really wish.

Romania gave me wings to fly higher and further because it knows that: wherever I would go and however far I would fly, I would still think of Her, I would still  feel the need to come back to Her and She knows that She is always with me… I guess this is why I love Romania, because I simply cannot help loving Her… Happy Birthday Romania!
