Corner view: Something difficult

Photo from here

Normaly I find easy to write. Some corner view themas are not easy but tere is always another way to see them and find out what to say. But this time, the post itself has become something difficult.

First I thought about writing about finding the perfect job. That kind of job, balanced between work and personal life and other interests. That kind of job in where waking up early is not a "and if I call and say that I am ill" thought. But if finding it is difficult, trying to explain what one is looking for, is more.

Then I thought about difficult moments in life. Most of us are now thinking about one or two. But that was not what I wanted. All know them and somehow we have managed to survive to them.

Finally I have decided that I wanted to see the difficult something in a positive way. In a kind of challenge. And my this year challenge is writing. As I told you here, I am trying to write a bit everyday. I have also sent something to Kinfolk magazine. It is more than difficult to be called to write something and more in a language that is not my mother tongue. But if we don´t try, difficults always become in imposibles.


Normalmente escribir es algo que no me cuesta. En el corner view siempre hay temas que resultan más complicados pero siempre hay alguna vuelta de tuerca que permite encontrar como relacionarlos con otras cosas y escribir algo. Pero esta vez, lo realmente difícil está siendo el hecho de escribir.

Primeramente pensé en escribir sobre cómo encontrar el trabajo perfecto. Lo diícil que resulta encontrar ese trabajo que permite el equilibrio entre la vida laboral y la vida personal y sus otras inquietudes. Ese trabajo donde cuando suena el despertador no piensas en "y si llamo y digo que estoy enferma...". Pero si encontrarlo es difícil tratar de explicar lo que uno quiere es todavía más, sobre todo cuando realmente no lo sabes.

Luego pensé en los momentos difíciles de la vida. Inmediatamente me vino a la cabeza alguno que otro y pensé que no quería haceros recordarlos. Al fin y al cabo en la las vidas de casi todos existen esos momentos y de alugna forma hemos sobreivivido a ellos.

finalmente he decidido que quería hablar de la dificultad en un tono positivo. Como si la dificultad fuera un reto. Y el reto para este año es escribir. Como ya os conté aquí, estoy tratando de escribir algo, por pequeño que sea, de forma regular. He mandado algo a la revista Kinfolk. Es más que difícil que me llamen para escribir algo. Sobre todo porque es en un idioma que no es el mío. Pero si no se intentam los difíciles se transforman inevitablemente en imposibles.


Normalean idazteak ez dit lanik ematen. Gai zailak izan dira corner view-ean baina perspektiba aldatuz beti aurkitu daite zeri buruz idatzi. Gaurkoan idaztea da zailena.

Lehenik lan perfektua bilatzeak duen zailtasunari buruz idaztea pentsatu dut. Goizetan jeiki eta ohera berriro buletatzera bueltatuko ez gaituena. Gure buruarekin konforme egonaraziko agituena eta gainerantzeko gauzak egiten lagako diguna. Baina zaila bada topatzea, zailagao zer bilatzen gauden deskribatzea.

Gero bizitzako zailtasunak etorri zaizkit gogora, bauna une berean alderatu dut ideia. Azken finean denok izan ditugu une zailak eta halanola hauetatik atera izan gara.

Azkenean zailtasunari buruz modu positbo batean idaztea otu zait. Halako erronka bat bezala. Aurten idaztari serio ekin dito. Edo gutxienez saiatuKinfolk aldizkarira ere idatzi egin dut. Zaila baino zailagoa da haiek deitu eta zeozer aldizkarirako idaztea. Ama hizkuntza ez den hizkuntzan gainera. Hala ere saiatzen ez bagara, zailtasunak beti ezinezko bilakatuko dira.

  10. i've often dreamt about a job such as you describe. i've now come to believe that any job which satisfies can be the one, 'ideal' job, so long as it doesn't put a strain on your life beyond acceptance. believe me, i know where i'm coming from, unfortunately. i do however also hope the difficult circumstance will lift. balancing a job, yes, definitely worth it, and hard work.
    you have to hang in, true, and writing can be a rewarding endeavor. enjoy the ride! n♥

  14. When my daughter was younger, I wrote stories for them. About pirates and Indians, Adventure, the first love ... then I eventually stopped because there is no time, no desire to ... this and that. This year I started writing again. For me. it's not about me, that the story someone reads sometime. I want to write to me, because writing is fun. And when I've finished one day, I want to even translate into English. Also, because this is fun. And if I am then quite old, I will publish it. Because the writing and translating will take quite a while.

    Kinfolk is a wonderful magazin. I like it. And the pictures in it.
