Retrospective – 7

March 2, 2015

Seven… Who would knew that number seven was ever going to be of significance in my life!?
I have never been a kind of person that had a favourite number or a favourite day, date, you name it.

They were just that, numbers and days. Sometimes I’d count days until a certain event or similar, sometimes I’d loose the count and just “flow” through the days… Sometimes, I’d pay attention to the important dates like birthdays of people that I love and similar, but in general, I couldn’t care less about the numbers, about days, weeks, months, years…

Up until this morning!

This morning I woke up realising that it’s been 7 full years of me living in Helsinki, Finland.

I have lived through seven most toughest years of my life. Seven years that have thought me a lot, seven years that took away a lot from me, seven years that gave me a lot.
Seven years that have thought me many valuable lessons that I never even knew I had to learn.

In the past 7 years I have completely “lost” myself just to be reborn and find a whole new ME… Me, that I could never even imagine could exist.

I remember myself seven years ago coming to Helsinki with only one suitcase and handbag. That was it, all of my “important” possessions were packed in these two, squared “spaces” but the biggest possession was packed in my heart. Love for a certain man and an excitement over starting a fresh chapter in my life in a new and such an intriguing place like Finland.

From then, when I was only 20 years old to this date, I got married, I had a child, I have found my purpose in life ( personally and professionally ), I have loved madly, I have been hurt deeply, I have gone through all the circles of hell, just to rise up again and find a fighter in me, to find a person in me that loves her light as much as her darkness… The fighter that now knows how to dream but not get her wings broken… I have learned how to let go and how to hold on tighter to the things that I stand for and people I believe in.
I have learned how to forgive and love just a little bit more than what I thought was possible.
I have learned that I’m much greater and lovable person, I have learned to appreciate moments and dear people because one moment they’re here and the next… you never know if you’ll catch a glimpse of them again…

To not make this story too long… In retrospective, Finland thought me a LOT and gave me something that money can’t buy, it has prepared me for a whole new chapter in my life that will start tomorrow, on my flight to Los Angeles. I’m starting a new era and I can’t wait to see where that’ll bring me and how my art AND blog will continue to develop from here – on.

I’m just so excited to share everything with you dear people, because what’s a life worth living if you don’t live to inspire everybody with the gifts that you’ve been given and with the stories that you’ve collected throughout your journey?

Thank you everybody, family, friends and you dear people for the past chapter, it’s start to take on a whole new one! πŸ™‚
