Long time no see…

“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” (Alice in Wonderland)

Pravijo, da vse pomembne stvari terjajo svoj čas. Da je vsaka večja sprememba svojevrsten proces in se uresničevanje ciljev ne zgodi čez noč. Proces, projekt…Vse prej kot preprost izziv za vse nestrpne “duše”, ki delujejo/mo po principu “sedaj ali nikoli” in jim ideja, da bo na rezultat oz. izid potrebno  malo čakati, ni pretirano pri srcu.

Lahko si torej predstavljate, da nad svojim zadnjim izzivom popolnega odklopa z namenom napornega večmesečnega študija in priprav za pravosodni izpit nisem bila navdušena, vsaj v začetni fazi gotovo ne. Pravo imam sicer zelo rada, včasih v škodo svojega prostega časa celo preveč rada in niti za sekundo ne obžalujem izbire svojega poklica, ampak vsaka ljubezen ima svoje meje  😉

Seveda ne gre le za pravo ali izpite, vsak se gotovo že je in se še bo soočil s poslovnimi/osebnimi/življenjskimi projekti, ki terjajo veliko energije, časa in motivacije in z bolj ali manj optimističnimi občutki in mislimi v zvezi s tem.

Če v kaj verjamem, potem je to gotovo pravilo, da zadostna količina prave energije in volje vodi do uspeha in da rezultat gotovo ne zaostane, če ne v prvo pa v drugo, če že ne plan A, pa zagotovo plan B (E=m× c², ane?). Ampak povedati želim pravzaprav nekaj drugega… ugotovila sem, da kljukanje cilja ni dovolj. Ta pot vodi do zadoščenja in intenzivne, a kratke sreče (cilj dosežen), nato pa pogosto do strmega padca navzdol (ok, kaj pa zdaj?). Življenje ni le zbiranje ciljev in trofej, ampak vsi padci, vzponi, ovinki, ideje, občutki itd. ki se zgodijo med začetno točko A in končno točko B. Šele v tem primeru uresničenje nekega cilja ni le nova kljukica in zgolj dodaten stavek v CV-ju. Ko ob vseh pohvalah, čestitkah, stiskih rok in stoječi komisiji veš, da si naredil nekaj velikega, zase. In ko pogledaš nazaj celoten PROCES veš, da si drugačen, malenkost boljši, spet zase. In za ta občutek se splača potruditi, res 🙂

Skoraj sram me je priznati, da sem se v zadnjih mesecih študija (pričakovano) naučila ogromno novega o pravni znanosti in (nepričakovano) količinsko prav  nič manj novega o sebi. Oh, pa še Green Ballerina se je zgodila nekje vmes, kar gotovo ni naključje.

Torej, zelo na kratko – naj vas cilji ne vodijo, ampak vi vodite njih, ob tem si pa dovolite učiti, pasti in zrasti, vse je v glavi 🙂

Se opravičujem za nekoliko drugačen in daljši uvod. Kar se tiče Green Ballerine, se tudi tu obetajo spremembe:

  • novih receptov je toliko, da bom rabila novo kuharsko knjigo, poudarek je na hitri in okusni hrani “za možgane”, z vmesnimi sladkimi, a zdravimi “priboljški”, ob študiju sem stalno lačna 🙂 ;
  • pripravlja se FB stran, ki jo obljubljam že dolgo, skrajni čas;
  • veeeč športnih vsebin;
  • več praktičnih koristnih vsebin, za lepši in lažji vsakdan, saj sem ugotovila, da si ljudje po nepotrebnem kompliciramo življenje :);
  • enomesečne novičke, ker nočem preveč obremenjevati vaš mail, pa se mi zdi vseeno fajn, če smo v kontaktu in vas vsake toliko razveselim s kakšno novičko, nasvetom, receptom ipd. , tako da se čim prej prijavite s klikom spodaj;
  • še in še presenečenj.

 

Uživajte in smo na vezi, odslej bolj pogosto, obljubim*

“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” (Alice in Wonderland)

I’ve never really been a fan of long-term plans and goals. Let’s be honest – “now or never”  sound much better than “you have to wait and see”. So you can imagine that my latest project – several months long study for international bar exam was quite of a bit of challenge for me.

I consider myself as an ambitious lawyer but giving up so many other important aspects of life in order to achieve this long-term GOAL was everything but appealing, at least at first glance. Be it law or any other topic – personal, professional, surely everyone has already encountered similar “challenges” and thoughts.

Now that the whole project is already successfully behind me, ad acta – done -finished, I see I couldn’t have been more wrong. In last months I gained new in depth legal knowledge and realized what really interests me (and what not!), which is surely superficial for my future career, but that was kind of expected. What I did’t expect, however, was  the amount of new things I learnt about MYSELF – motivation, stress management, time management, balance, new hobbies, being in tune with myself, even Green Ballerina was created sometime on that way!

Looking back I realised having a goal doesn’t mean devoting your whole life to it. Your goals will be achieved, sooner or later, but what really matters is the real outcome. There’s a significant difference between setting the goals and checking them off the list and consciously, fully living one’s life, trying this and that, constantly learning, enjoying the journey. Aware of  the goal but not emotionally drained from it. It’s just the matter of perspective, really 🙂

I shall apologize for my longer absence  on greenballerina.com…and for  more personal post, but I simply have to put it out loud :). Regarding Green Ballerina there will be some changes:

  •  I have many new recipes waiting for you – focus is on quick, delicious and healthy “brain food” to keep you going throughout the day + some really (I mean really!) good healthy treats coming!
  • New FB-page is currently under construction, so stay tuned!
  • more sports-related posts, every day useful tips;
  • I promise to send newsletter to my e-mail subscribers once a month, to keep you informed about the latest posts, trends + new bonus recipes + more, so make sure you subscribe asap (link below);
  • I promise to write longer posts in English, I don’t want my English readers to be discriminated 😉
  • new surprises…

I cannot wait! Enjoy your day!

Love
