A letter to myself

1 August 2017

I believe serendipity is the favorite word of my best friend. Translated – to not look nor seek for things that you are longing for, as lot will find you. Not that you don’t genuinely deserve it, but at times hope can truly be a destructive thing, so let’s free fall and let luck be on your side. Sometimes when you want something – expect something – there is a distinctive greed that you’re unaware of. And without noticing you will find yourself in a typhoon, a voracity spiral, wanting more and more. What I always wonder is «are we reflecting ourselves to the tension and complexities of our contemporary society.» Well, who knows?

As I’ve blown my 24 candles, I’d came to realize – one of the most important thing in life is to not always wanting to know why. How and why certain things happen, why people behaved the way that they did – or why things didn’t work out. The harder you think, the little less you actually know, you tend to fill it in with your own perception – as life always expresses the result of our dominant thoughts. Leaving the retro perspective: simply black and white. Life is actually really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is to not be too harsh on yourself, but to thrive and to be bold. Never miss an opportunity to let your brilliance shine and dazzle. Take that chance. Accept the challenge, or if the challenge doesn’t arise, make it your own challenge.

I believe that everything you can dream of – if only you set your mind to it – can become reality. Don’t settle for mediocrity, find a dream and pursue it. You are the main character of your own book; make it worthwhile as you might surprise yourself with hidden talents. Life is far from perfect, and you will fall a hundred or a million of times. I’ve heard many no’s – got knocked over by past friendships, relationships, desired jobs. But I’ve never stopped and always pulled myself up by my bootstraps. You need to because no one else will do it for you. And even though, at that time everything felt gloomy, you need to remember – when it’s the right time, things will fall perfectly in place.

It’s crazy when they say: when you get older you get wiser. And no, I am not old but that myth is so true. And realizing that will only make you value the elderly more. We can’t plan life, life just happens. All we can do is to be available for it. Have a genuine interest in all the little details of daily life, appreciate them – there might just lay the secret of happiness.

As always,
xo xo V.
