“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” — Oprah Winfrey
2013 is officially over and all our hopes, wishes and desires are now projected into year 2014. Will it be as good as the one we just ended or will it be better? Will it be worse?
/my expectations on January 2nd 2013/
When I look back at year we just kissed goodbye I see one very successful and amazing year. Don’t get me wrong – there were some bad moments and things weren’t always just picture perfect. But all in all it was a great year. So many things in my life changed and I’ve learned a lot about myself and people around me. I wasn’t afraid to take chances, I knew what I want and I followed my dreams and my heart.
I’ve experienced “There’s no such thing as an ending, just a new beginning …” so deep and it’s crazy how we sometimes just need time to make things right again. And have faith in your feelings. If you can feel that something is right for you with every bone in your body, than do it! Do not wait and ignore it. Chances like that doesn’t come often and you shouldn’t ignore it, trust me- I know. *my story*
I’ve pushed my boundaries so far (on many different levels) in 2013. I’ve done things I never thought I will. I believed I can, so I did. And it was magical. It was such a good experience and I will remember it always. One of those things is definitely our 37km long hike. I never walked such distance, but I knew I can do it. I knew I had a great support in my boyfriend and my dad, so that was all I needed. I trusted myself, I knew my body won’t fail me. Not here. Because I’m stubborn and there’s nothing I can’t do if I decide it in my mind. Just try to stop me. I dare you! *hike story*
Soon after that something divine happened. Something that literally changed my life again and make it even better, even though I was already so grateful for everything I received so far. *Story about that has not be written yet, so you’ll have to wait for details a bit longer. But I promise to share it with you.*
At the end of the year I was contacted by lovely Lorella Flego and asked to be part of her amazing show, called Glitter. Another wonderful and unforgettable experience. I had to pinch myself several time to realized that everything that is happening at that point is real. All together was just to good to be true. *interview story*
I know 2014 will be a good one. I can feel it. A lot of things will change. Some words will get a whole new meaning. We’ll be stronger than ever and ready to cope with anything life brings us. Because I know my heart so well. It never gives up on truly important things. Nothing can break it and every bad moment makes it even stronger. Sure we’ll cry. But many of those tears will be tears of pure joy and happiness. Some bridges will be burned and some will be crossed. Some people will disappoint us, but our true friends will stay here and hold your hand when beautiful things come and when sad days appear. Everything that happens, happens with a reason. I can’t tell you how much I believe in this statement. And it will be my mantra through all 365 days of this year.
I wish you all the best in 2014. And don’t forget that no one can make you happy if you don’t work on your inner happiness first.
