Grateful

When you get a red light…!

‘When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny. /Paulo Coelho/

I had no idea what to write about in my blog, but LIFE ‘generously’ resolved my problem with a sudden knee injury. (Yeah! usually, injuries are not planned.) And as I had no other choice, I did not need a week to accept my destiny. So here I am, writing in my bed wearing a knee brace and happy if I do not have to move. For at least couple weeks my best friends are Rich and Mick, my 2 crutches, who support me to do the basic activities as I can not put weight on my left knee. But how did I end up here?

The Tale of Two Brains

‘I start to see: what men call female illogicality, it is actually logic, just different from theirs.’ /Robert Merle/

How many times has happened with you that you have not understood what your partner, spouse, friend or relatives of the opposite sex are doing? And how many times has this incomprehension led to a quarrel or miscommunication? Continue reading

Dear January,

Dear January,

Where have you gone? You have no idea how excitedly I was waiting for You and you abandoned me without a word! End of last year, I was impatiently counting the days till the day of your advent. Till others were waiting for the festive period and Christmas, I was waiting for You. Just for You! I know, I know! I should focus on the PRESENT and enjoy the moment instead of keeping my gaze on the future, but have you ever tried to explain to a kid to forget the Christmas presents under the Christmas tree and just focus on the vibe of the holiday? That’s how I felt and for me You were the Christmas present. Your friend, December was not very amiable with me and I had the feeling that from You I can expect something new, something more generous. Deep inside I felt that with your arrival change and many new plans and experiences will land in my life. Then you appeared, showed your frosty face and before I could even realize your presence, you left as an unexpected visitor who does not intend to be obtrusive. Tell me how could You do that with me?? I am desperately looking for You, but I can only catch a glimpse of your silhouette fading into the past and I feel you are wisely smiling at me.

Yes! I can announce proudly that I love AUTUMN! For a long time this year is the first time (yes, I am not kidding) that I feel excited about the season. In the years before, when autumn started to knock on my door I welcomed him with a dull, ‘are-you-here-again’ grimace on my face. I grieved the departure of the summer with sunshine and just wanted to survive autumn and its ’promises’ like cold, slush, rain and shorter daytimes. But this year something has changed in me. Again.

Yes! I am a Woman!

Today I went into the gym again. If you know me, you may also know that there is nothing special about that. Since I was born I always did some sport and the gym has always been my sacred place on every continent I lived. But today on a usual gym day something unusual happened there. I looked around in the women changing-room and a sudden current of energy and feeling inundated me. I felt that I am proud to be a WOMAN! Continue reading
