Ti možeš sve / You can do anything

“Prebaci srce preko trapeza, a tvoje telo će krenuti za njim.“ / “Throw your heart over the trapeze and your body will follow.”

– Iz knjige Bernija S. Zigela „Mir, ljubav i lečenje“ / From the book “Love, Medicine and Miracles” by Bernie S. Siegel

Ti možeš sve! Baš sve što poželiš, možeš i da ostvariš. Savršeno si biće, što ga beskonačni um stvori, u tebi su isprepleteni vekovi ljudske muke i mudrosti. Ti si čitav jedan svet.

Mada mi kažu da sam tvrdoglava kao da je to nešto loše, ja se nadam da se nikada neću promeniti. Koliko sam se samo nervirala kada mi tata kaže da sam tvrdoglava kao magarac! Međutim, došao je trenutak u mom životu kada sam svim srcem zahvaljivala Bogu na tom daru tvrdoglavosti, tj. upornosti. Ta tvrdoglavost mi je možda spasila život. Ona me je više puta terala da ostanem svoja po svaku cenu, da se ne povedem za društvom, da budem dosledna u svojim principima, da sačuvam sebe, ono najbolje što mi je dato u životu. Jer najvrednije što imam, dobila sam već rodjenjem, vrisnuli su svi moji preci i svaki je hteo da baš njegov gen nastavi večitu bitku sa životom, i ako je baš taj uporni gen tvrdoglavosti uspeo da se probije i obeleži moj život, neka to ne bude uzalud! Na kraju, samo uporni stižu do cilja.

I zato volim, mada to nije lako za roditelja, kada vidim trag te tvrdoglavosti u mom detetu i nadam se da će i nju ta osobina spasavati od mnogih iskušenja života i odvesti do svih ciljeva koje sebi postavi.

You can do anything! Just anything you wish, you can achieve. You are a perfect being, created by the unlimited mined, centuries of human torment and wisdom all wrap around inside of you. You are one whole world.

Although people say to me that I am stubborn like it is a bad thing, I hope I will stay this way forever. I remember being so frustrated when my dad used to tell me that I am stubborn as a mule! However, there came a period of my life when I was thankful for that gift of stubbornness, i.e. persistence. That stubbornness maybe saved my life. More than once, it made me stay true to myself no matter what, it made me not to go with the crowd, to be persistent with my own beliefs, to preserve myself, the very best thing I was given to in life. Because the most valuable thing I own was already given to me with birth, all my ancestors roared and each one of them wanted for their very gene to continue eternal battle with life, and if that persistent gene of stubbornness managed to break through and mark my life, let it not be in vain! In the end, only the persistent reach the finish line.

This is why I love the glimpse of that stubbornness in my daughter, although it doesn’t come easy on a parent, and I hope this attribute will save her as well from all kinds of temptations in life and lead her to the fulfillment of all the goals she sets up for herself.
