Un tânăr care voia să se facă preot s-a răzgândit şi s-a apucat de afaceri cu covoare: „Nu a fost pentru mine“

Marin Costin este un tânăr care încă nu a împlinit 28 de ani încă, dar care se poate considera un om împlinit prin ceea ce face şi prin familia pe care o are. Bineînţeles, până a ajunge la starea de bine pe care o are acum a trecut prin câteva etape ale vieţii, pe care nu le vede însă ca un eşec, cu lecţiile necesare pentru a învăţa ce i se potriveşte cel mai bine.

Marin a început în viaţă cu un gând, gând ce l-a dus în clasa a IX-a pe băncile profilului de teologie ortodoxă de la un liceu din Satu Mare. Timp de patru ani de zile, a învăţat Noul şi Vechiul Testament, scripturile, greaca, latina şi alte materii. Totuşi, la un moment dat Marin a decis să renunţe.

„Nu a fost de mine, pur şi simplu nu am simţit acel ceva de care aveam nevoie ca să îmbrac haina aia. Sunt om, sunt păcătos, mi-a plăcut viaţa mai mult decât regulile bisericeşti. Decât să fiu un preot păcătos care una să zic şi alta să fac, am preferat să caut să fac altceva”, declară Marin, mândru că nu s-a minţit singur în viaţă şi nu a făcut în continuare teologia doar de dragul de a fi făcută.

Momentul terminării liceului a fost unul de totală debusolare, dar fiind faptul că informaţiile acumulate în cei patru ani nu i-au fost de prea mare ajutor. A luat la pas ţările străine. A muncit ce a găsit, a schimbat domeniile şi locurile de muncă, dar parcă nu îşi găsea locul. Ceva tot îi lipsea şi nici una din meseriile avute nu l-a făcut să simtă că acolo vrea să se oprească.

Se pare că destinul lui era în altă parte şi l-a găsit când a întâlnit-o pe soţia sa. Odată cu aceasta a găsit şi domeniul care să îl atragă suficient pentru a face un stil de viaţă. Covoarele. Acest domeniu, cu tot ce aducea el nou l-a atras pe Marin, care a decis să se implice în afacerea socrilor săi, să o extindă şi să o ducă la un alt nivel. Acum Marin îşi întreţine familia din vânzarea de covoare.

„Am clienţi care vin o dată la patru luni şi îşi schimbă covorul. Numai la mine vin, ei zic că nu au cumpărat niciodată covoare din altă parte. Şi nu le schimbă pentru că nu mai sunt bune sau nu le plac, le schimbă pentru că mereu apare ceva nou sau mereu schimbă ei ceva prin casă şi doresc să aducă un aer nou în casă, să aibă o altă culoare vie în casă. Vin şi cumpără covor din alt material, altă textură, altă culoare”.

 

Covoarele nu se demodează niciodată şi toate modele din 1990 se vând încă bine – foto: Adrian Caraba

„Ideea e că aici, la covoare, nu există modă. Aici trebuie să îi placă omului, să i se potrivească lui cu mobila, dar mai ales ideile lui şi să fie plăcut la ochi. Covorul nu îl cumpără nimeni să îl arate cuiva, îl cumpără să îl pună în casă pe jos şi să îl vadă el zi de zi, nu alţii. De aceea aici moda nu se prea schimbă, apar doar lucruri noi, dar nu iese nimic din modă, totul se păstrează.”, povesteşte Marin mândru că a ales un domeniu care va merge mereu.

În prezent acestaare douămagazine, unul în galeria Complexului Comercial Auchan și unul în Carei și chiar dacă ar putea sta doar să supravegheze vânzările și să se ocupe de aprovizionare, Marin preferă să fie acolo, între covoare și oameni, să simtă ceea ce își doresc clienții, să discute cu ei și să rămână mereu în contact cu clientul.

Acesta consideră că din acest domeniu va reuşi să îşi întreţină mereu familia, pentru că niciodată covoarele nu se vor demoda, fie ele mai mici sau mai mari, oamenii vor dori mereu să aibă un covor în casă. Marin povesteşte că nu s-ar întoarce la teologie şi nu regretă deloc alegerea luată, chiar dacă viaţa mohanală i-ar fi adus beneficii materiale probabil mai mari, acesta nu consideră că ar fi simţit aceeaşi satisfacţie.

I urge Linux distributors to offer easy to follow instruction for disabling UEFI, along with an explanation of why UEFI does not to improve use security, rather than giving microsoft money to get their approval/signature.

  3. The next time I examine a weblog, I hope which it doesnt fail me as much as this one. I necessarily mean, I do know it has been my choice to learn, however I seriously thought youd have got something interesting to state. All We hear is a lot of whining about another thing which you might fix once you werent too busy looking for attention.

  4. you should be nicer as it's just a burger in a pub. Um, how about no? A burger anywhere is a burger you've paid money for. No excuse to serve up crappy food. For the record one of my favourite burgers here in Sydney is at a corner pub.. it is delicious every time and only AU$10 WITH awesome rosemary chips.

  6. has supported pretty much every large piece of legislation during his term which violates the Constitution. i.e. Patriot act, Health care “reform” (he only withdrew his support after it was going to pass) etc.As a Marine Corps veteran, I know all too well the lack of knowledge that the service men and women have about the Constitution. Most have never even read ANY of the document. Very few all of it, and even less can recite specific restrictions it places on government.

  7. Welcome to the world of PC gamers…. this has been converted from PC to console- around 1% of games are converted from PC to console. PC games are converted from console – around 90% of PC games are converted from console to PC . PC gamers get dumbed down, shallow, badly optimized converted games all the time and console owners don’t give a damn and don;t give PC gamers any support – so I am laughing at all the people who bought this game on console and saying ‘serve you right for not caring about us PC gamers that go through the same thing 10 times more!

  10. Sawsan, I will be looking forward to the recipe when you get to it.In the meantime,I will try to find i t on my ‘travels’. I managed to get ‘exiled’ to a small town and often have to go out-of-town for interesting food…but I have to say it is finally growing here and there are newer, more exotic foods coming in.Also, with the TV chefs, people are finally trying new things.I will look for karakeesh. I love sesame.

  11. I’ve learned newer and more effective things from your blog post. One other thing I have noticed is that generally, FSBO sellers will reject you. Remember, they might prefer never to use your solutions. But if a person maintain a comfortable, professional connection, offering help and keeping contact for four to five weeks, you will usually have the capacity to win interviews. From there, a listing follows. Thank you

  12. Alex Pearl OMG I don’t know Pol or Rad – do you? Wow. Yes let’s mate (sorry Al). I’ve been thinking that because most artists don’t wash and care for hygiene we could go IVF, or maybe even the surrogate route so I don’t have to actually go through anything that could count as a proper life experience. Mummy and Daddy say they don’t want little old me to change!David, thanks for thinking about the possibility. I will get PA man to cross you off list.This IS exciting!

  14. Je vous remercie d’annoncer prochainement une publication de vos travaux en fonction de leurs évolutions. Vous êtes bien sûr libre de publier ce vous que vous voulez . Mais la question n’est pas là. Vous vous inscrivez dans un contexte de partage d’où mon étonnement de ne ne pas voir les fichiers sources. Quel est l’intérêt du lecteur de votre blog si il ne ne peut pas apporter ses remarques et ses critiques constructives à une expérimentation. J’attends vos publications à venir.

  15. For THATCamp this Saturday, I would like to have a general discussion about the relationship between the digital humanities and scholarly communication and the different forms of online scholarly communication, such as MediaCommonsPress and hypertext. This week at my DH class, Kathleen Fitzpatrick, director of scholarly communication at the MLA and author of the DH book Planned Obsolescence, discussed online peer review and blogging and the changes regarding professors receiving tenure- it was interesting and very insightful.

  16. Adrienne, have you tried wearing Fresh Amour with a lip liner like MAC Nightmoth or Magenta underneath it? I bought both the purple Posh Paradise Mattenes with the intention of layering them over those lip liners. They seriously make a huge difference in how wearable they can be!

Je tiens à m’excuser si mes propos ont été mal interprétés… Le seul truc qui m’ a surpris justement c’est que le gars (ou la fille) arrive à faire ça au mouseclick, moi perso j’en suis incapable, j’ai bind mes touches et je me vois mal faire ça à la souris, je suis maraudeur, c’est simplement impossible pour moi, voilà.Fallait pas le prendre du mauvais coté (obscur), c’était pas mon intention

  18. RE: – Estate sales have always worked great for my personal investments but too many times there was an heir that overvalued their families property and it caused problems in negotiating aggressive sales price drops for my clients. The more cooks in the kitchen you know……………………So I just place the estate sales next to supposed motivated sellers. Just be patient Buyers…They all need to sell far more then you need to BUY! – Rate this comment: 0  0

  19. Éste es uno de esos lugares que todos queremos ver una vez en la vida. Tiene que ser impresionante.Yo, al igual que Fran, estuve en Islandia el pasado verano y tuve ocasión de hacer trekking por un glaciar más pequeñito pero que, de igual forma, me dejó sin palabras.A ver si algún día cae un viaje por aquella zona!!Un saludo

  20. #4 grimWhat I find funny in this discussion here is that the actual law is passed over.Part of my problem with CC is that he tends to bypass the law and looks to the court of public opinion for judgement. A pension is deferred compensation so it does fall under the interpretation of the constitution. Medical is a different benefit so there may be a case there for them to pay. The corporation as a person is an interpretation of the constitution, that I disagree with, but its law so I have to accept it.

  21. Thanks Becci.The comparison of Greenberg’s work with abuse is going much too far, indeed.Some of you here seem not to have contact with kids. Or maybe you are simply much too moralistic. If so, please do not discuss art. Moral and art are different categories.The photos of Jill Greenberg are art.Thank you for your understanding.

  22. 小明,每次投票,慣性反對舉左手,贊成舉右手,次次想舉右手,但係都比左手搶先舉起左,否決了很多右手想贊成的民生方案。最後,右手有個提議,次次都係左手舉左先,左手贏晒,唔得喇,右手諗左20å¹´,諗到條絕世好橋,斬撚左集左手去,一了百了,以後仲唔輪到我右手現晒。小明,好想保住左右手,然則,右手一意孤行。呢隻右手決定誓要踢走左手玩鋪勁。右手,一隻咁撚玩野既右手,如果右手踢撚走隻左手,以後,小明從此成為獨臂小明,每次舉手,佢跟本唔洗舉啦,得番隻右手,即係咩都要贊成啦。咁樣,又公平咩?小明,每次投票,慣性反對舉左手,贊成舉右手,真係諗極都諗唔明,點鮮隻右手咁唔閪化。無左左手既小明,係一個殘決既小明。小明誓死都要兩隻手都保存去平衡投票權,有左手有右手,先叫健全。右手,你絕對唔可以因為唔夠左手舉得快,就出怪招請走左手,無眼屎真係乾淨盲?

  23. 最低工資,要同最長工時配合。好多老闆屈你返十多個鐘。話你落兩場,所以你返十個鐘來走法律罅。舉例︰每日上班十個鐘,你有兩個鐘休息時間。所以你唔係返十二個鐘,已係返十個鐘。請問各位一個小時可以返屋企做家務嗎?所以強硬些。每人一日最多只可上班九小時,最多有一場休息時間,特別工種,例如航空等,就用休息時間補救。講開又講,戈個鐘隨時處理公司急務。而加班必須禁止。今次攪最低工資,係用來反對醬缸文化。雖然識撈的衰人好多,始終,無時間無書讀,都係真理。

  27. "privire ratacita de caprioara prinsa in lumina farurilor" Hahahahahahahha, ma omori =))Am inteles acum. Nici eu nu sunt fan, defapt cred ca m-am exprimat de mai multe ori in privinta asta (si am fost taxata de fiecare data) dar observ ca se fac demersuri in ceea ce priveste varietatea. Cu toate ca "scandura" inca e imparateasa.

  28. Is there a benefit for waiting for your hub score to become higher before hitting the publish button? I noticed if it takes awhile to get everything arranged that sometimes the hub score starts to climb. Is there any benefits until waiting until it is higher? Or does it not make a difference?

  30. Liebe Antje,da gibt es viele Möglichkeiten für Ihre Hausärztin: Z.B. kann sie live in Headbook mitlesen oder sich gezielt Themen raussuchen. Neue Fachliteratur ist ebenfalls erhältlich. Es gibt auch regionale und überregionale Kongresse zum Thema. Möglicherweise ist aber eine Überweisung zu einem Kopfschmerzzentrum der einfachste Weg.Freundliche GrüßeHartmut Göbel

  31. J’ai fait ma procuration pendant mon retour en France, juste la semaine avant Noël.En 5 minutes tout est bon, et je vais au greffe du tribunal.Comme je le fais chaque année, je suis tranquille et on commence à me connaître.Ce serait certainement une autre histoire si je m’y prenais à la dernière minute, mais 4 mois avant je suis certain d’être seul à faire ma demande et donc que celle-ci soit acceptée avec une rapidité déconcertante !
