Bajka / A Fairytale

Ovo je moj život! Meni je dat kao redak dar i od mene zavisi kako ću ga upotrebiti. Ja sam taj umetnik koji će mu dati konačni oblik.

Živeti život ispunjen ljubavlju, divnim, dragim ljudima, istinskom lepotom življenja u jednostavnosti već datog sa neverovatnom lakoćom. Uživati u magiji svakodnevnih stvari, malih čistih trenutaka sreće i spokoja. To je moj film…

Zahteva trud, ali ne i težinu, mudrost je iskoristiti maksimalno prednosti onoga što nam je dato, bilo to naše okruženje ili naši talenti i veštine, a onda ih poboljšati, usavršiti, oplemeniti, tako ćemo lakše savladati i one stvari koje nam baš i ne idu od ruke. Važno je prihvatiti nesavršenost, jer to je ono što nas čini jedinstvenim. Možda je bolje reći da smo svi savršeni na poseban način. Meni su večita inspiracija i motivacija ljudi koji zrače pozitivnošću, a često imaju težak život; ljudi koji su ispunjeni onime što rade i rade to sa lakoćom, a postižu uspeh; ljudi koji se osećaju dobro u svojoj koži i imaju saosećanja za druge, oni koji te nateraju da se zamisliš, da se zapitaš o pravoj vrednosti života i da li je zaista shvataš i prihvataš.

Prestala sam da mislim da moram da uradim nešto, postignem nešto, ne, ne moram. Ništa ne moram. Za neke stvari prosto nisam sazdana, ali ono što imam, što posedujem, što je samo moje, treba da upotrebim, da koristim, da rastem.

Biću sasvim zadovoljna i srećna da vodim svoj život i svoju mladu porodicu putem koji sam sama odsanjala i da kroz neke male stvari dotaknem još nečiji život iskrom radosti i čuda koja se dešavaju svakodnevno i u koja verujem. Verujem u svoju bajku, a i ona veruje u mene.

This is my life! It was given to me as a rare gift and it depends on me how I will use it. I am the artist who will give it the final shape.

To live a life filled with love, with wonderful, dear people, the true beauty of living in the simplicity that’s already given with incredible ease. Enjoy the magic of everyday things, small pure moments of happiness and serenity. This is my movie…

It requires effort, but not heaviness, wisdom is to make the most of what is given to us, be it our environment or our talents and skills, and then improve, perfect, refine them, so we can more easily master those things that do not really do well for us. It is important to accept imperfection, because that is what makes us unique. Perhaps it is better to say that we are all perfect in a special way. To me, the eternal inspiration and motivation are the people who radiate positivity, even they often have a difficult life; people who are filled with what they do and do it with ease and achieve success; people who feel good in their own skin and have compassion for others, those who make you think, make you ask yourself about the true value of life and whether you really understand and accept it.

I stopped thinking I have to do something, achieve something, no, I don’t have to. I don’t have to do anything. For some things I am simply not made for, but what I have, what I possess, which is only mine, I need to use, to employ, to grow.

I will be completely satisfied and happy to lead my life and my young family on the path I dreamed of myself and to touch someone else’s life through some small things with the spark of joy and miracles that happen every day and in which I believe. I believe in my fairy tale, and she also believes in me.

Ljubav je važna

Ceo svet može da vas voli, ali vas ta ljubav neće usrećiti. Ono što će vas usrećiti jeste da podelite svu ljubav koja se krije u vama. To je ljubav koja je važna.

Don Migel Ruiz

Znaš onaj momenat kada voljena osoba uđe u prostoriju i ona sva zablista, jednostavno sve se ozari, a najviše ti sam. To je trenutak kada vreme uspori svoje disanje, kada sve što radiš, radiš bez napora, bez umora, bez bola, sve je u savršenoj harmoniji. On ti prilazi, spušta dah na tvoje usne, kao da se budiš iz stogodišnjeg sna i više nikada ne moraš da zažmuriš, jer tvoj san je java.

U ljubavi želim bajku! Želim da dotaknem sve svetle trenutke života, da se ogrejem o čestice prefinjene, tanane sreće, koje vidimo samo ja i moja zaljubljena duša. Želim da se ogledam u očima lepšim od svake lepote, sjajnijim od bisera i većim od svake dobrote. Hrabriju, pametniju, bolju osobu od sebe tražim, da je volim i da svetlim u trenucima čiste sreće u njegovoj duši od ljubavi što plamti, što stvara život i tka san o nas dvoje i večnoj sreći, jer smo jedno drugom sve, i dan i noć i zvezde i sunce i pun mesec u tamnoj noći…

Ljubav je sve.

Teorija o životu uopšte / A theory of life in general

Šta je život? Rođenje, radost, tuga, odrastanje, bol, ljubav, sreća, patnja, radost, padanje i ustajanje, smrt i šta posle? Večita pitanja: da li život ima smisla, i ako ima koji je to smisao?

Život to sam ja. Bez mene život i ne postoji. Moj život je moj smisao. Ja postojim u ovom životu, na ovoj planeti sa svrhom da živim svoj život najbolje što mogu, na način koji izaberem, a ja sam odabrala ljubav. Uh, pa svi biraju ljubav, reći ćete. Da, svi žele ljubav, ali neki ljudi samo čekaju da im ljubav dođe i nakupe puno negativnih osećanja u tom čekanju, a kada im čekanje dosadi, pristaju na sve. Dok neki, poput mene, krenu na daaalek put u potrazi za ljubavlju. Napatila sam se ja na tom putu, nije da nisam, i plakala i jadikovala i stalno osećala nedostatak te iste ljubavi koju sam tako očajnički tražila, da ne kažem jurila. I malo je falilo da odustanem, da se “pomirim sa sudbinom”, da pristanem na nešto što samo liči na ljubav, ali se brzo istroši. Znate šta je bilo na kraju tog puta? Naišao je princ na belom konju, poljubio me i razbio zle čini… I wish! Ne, ne, ali i to je došlo posle. Posle čega? Posle saznanja da ljubav nije tamo negde i da ljubav ne može niko da mi da; da ljubav nije patnja, da ljubav ne boli, da ljubav nikako ne znači samouništenje zbog nekoga ili nečega. Da se život ne živi zbog drugih i za druge, da je ljubav preduslov života i život sam, da je ljubav u meni, da je ta ljubav veća i od mene i od mog života. Na kraju tog puta sam prihvatila sebe i prigrlila ljubav i rešila da volim, a ne da budem voljena i onda je zaista naišao moj princ, ne baš na belom konju, mada jeste bila zima i padao je sneg kada smo se prvi put poljubili.

I tako, život teče… Uvek me je privlačila ona misao – Život je reka, utopi se ili plivaj! Ono što mi je zadavalo muke, doduše, bilo je što sam veći deo života plivala uzvodno, jer je neko tamo nekada (najverovatnije neki Srbin), rekao da je život težak! Od malena nas mažu ratničkim bojama, a onda odjednom čuješ: uspori, opusti se, uživaj, pomiriši cvet, pogledaj u nebo, poslušaj cvrkut ptica… A ja kažem, filtriraj sve što čuješ, napiši sam svoj scenario, usmeri tu reku  na svoju vodenicu i igraj, igraj, igraj.

What is life? Birth, joy, sorrow, growing up, pain, love, happiness, suffering, joyfulness, stumbling and rising, death and what next? Eternal questions: does life have meaning, and if so, what is the meaning of life?

Life, it is me. Without me, life does not exist. My life is my meaning. I exist in this life, on this planet with the purpose of living my life the best I can, in the way I choose, and I have chosen love. Uh, well everyone chooses love, you’ll say. Yes, everyone wants love, but some people just wait for love to come to them and accumulate a lot of negative feelings in that wait, and when they get tired of waiting, they agree to everything. While some, like me, set out on a long journey in search of love. I suffered on that journey, it’s not that I didn’t, and I cried and lamented and constantly felt the lack of that same love that I was so desperately looking for, I might as well say chased it. And I almost gave up, I almost “came to terms with my destiny”, almost agreed to something that only looks like love, but quickly wears out. You know what happened at the end of that trip? The prince came on a white horse, kissed me and broke my evil spells… I wish! No, no, but that did come later. After what? After learning that love is not out there somewhere and that no one can give me love; that love is not suffering, that love does not hurt, that love by no means stand for self-destruction for someone or something. That life is not lived for the sake of others and for others, that love is a precondition of life and life itself, that love is in me, that this love is greater than me and my life. At the end of that journey, I accepted myself and embraced love and decided to love, not to be loved, and then my prince really came along, not exactly on a white horse, although it was winter and it was snowing when we first kissed.

And so, life flows… I was always attracted by that thought – Life is a river, drown or swim! What bothered me, however, was that I swam upstream for most of my life, because someone there once (most likely a Serb) said that life is hard! We have been painted with warrior colors since we were little, and then suddenly you hear: slow down, relax, enjoy, smell the flower, look at the sky, listen to the birds chirping… And I say, filter everything you hear, write your own script, direct that river to your mill and play, play, play.
