I find it a little hard to believe that we’ve already stepped into the 2018. Wow, in April I’m actually going to be 50 - I can’t believe! I somehow feel 15 years younger :) I don’t know if that’s a good thing…? Well, I guess it is, the most important thing is that the soul is young. Being young is amazing but maturity has its charm too, right? If we’re aware of how important it is to live and love, then our lives are fulfilled and we don’t have to worry about time passing.
I think that throughout these years I gained a lot of experience that thought me some of the most valuable things. Sometimes I stop and think about my life. I ask myself what I could have done differently… But then I come to the conclusion that things I did in the past had their meaning and some of them had to turn out the way they did. Without those experiences I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
To some events we just can’t affect at all. The fact that I survived through a war in the years that should’ve been the most beautiful years of my life, made a strong woman out of me who has her feet on the ground. Yes, it was a real war that happened in the Ex Yugoslavia. I’m sure that most of you heard about that event which happened in the 90’s. After that at some times I thought that I would most rather have that memory deleted, but it just doesn’t work that way. I used to think that bad things happen only to other people and that I wouldn’t be able to survive them. But, I’ve been to many different life crises, more than I could’ve imagined. What helped me a lot during those times was my fate and connection to God.
I have to admit that the fact of me turning 50 made me set a few more life goals. I will write about that later. I think you will agree with me that most of us women who are at the similar age are going through similar experiences, no matter where we live. And I’m sure we also love similar thing because they united us into the Chic & Antique family. That truly fulfils my soul. I hope that our communication will last and that it will make our lives richer.
God bless you and may this year be a step further into a happier and more quality life.
