Is It Over Yet?

Well, here we are! Difficult to believe that there are only few more hours left in 2014!

Honestly, I cannot wait! No, really! At my age you would think it will be disappointing that another year has passed by.... but this is not the case with 2014. Goodbye and good riddance!

Okay, okay, okay! I am still the same happy, go lucky, optimistic and super positive Ms. Sunshine. But this year really beat me up! And no it was not the long, cold and super snowy winter of 2014 or "what happen to the summer" summer of 2014. Well, those might have contributed a little bit. These were the very many events that took place in my business and personal life.

Oh the rollercoaster of life! It is exciting and unpredictable and it is not easy to get off of it. I have a feeling there are many of you that caught that ride. So, pretty sure you know what I am talking about. And let me add that I am not a fan of rollercoasters at all!

I really do not want to bore you with going on and on and on about rollercoaster (I think I am going to be sick!) so let's get to the point. All the fun talk aside, this is life people and it is full of unpredictable events, ups and downs, sharp turns and of course unforgettable experiences! Think about it, where will you be if you got off of this ride? How far are you willing to go?

For me the ride keeps going on and on. Am I ready to get off of it? Absolutely not! Yes sure this year has been a trying one, but there were so many happy moments  and plenty of opportunities to learn new lessons. And for me that what life is all about. Every day, every week, every month and every year I learn more! I learn more about the world, I learn more about my surroundings, I learn more about my business, I learn more about people around me and most importantly I learn more about myself!

So let me finish this post by saying a big THANK YOU to 2014! Yes, it has been one of the toughest years in a while but I made it through and grew wiser, stronger and happier! Yes, happier! I realized that I lost myself somewhere few years ago but 2014 helped me to find myself again!

I am very grateful to 2014 for all that it brought my way! I am very grateful to 2014 for reminding me of the woman I am! I am very grateful to 2014 for bringing my life back to me!

It is my hope that you are as grateful to 2014 as I am. You lived and now you are entering a new year and a chance for a new beginning (if you need one). It is super exciting!

So raise your glasses and enjoy the ride! Just don't forget to put the safety belt on!!!! Oh, and there is no such thing as a free ride!

Have a very Happy New Year! Wish you all great health, great love, great peace and great success in 2015!

Where Does The Time Go

Hi! I cannot believe it has been two years!!!! Where did the time go? What happen? Did you think I simply disappeared? Well, I sort of did..... and I am sorry!

Two years does not seem like a very long time in the universal age but it is in my world. Many events took place and some have changed my life.

I promise that this post will not be a detailed program of my last two years but it will be a shame not to mention a few. And here they are:

- Established myself as a successful Realtor in Ottawa (hard work pays off)

- Celebrated my son's High School graduation (we are both very pleased that this chapter is over)

- Visited my family and friends in my Motherland and had an absolute blast (been five years since the last blast visit, I might share a few details)

- Visited Las Vegas for the first time (OMG! I might elaborate on this one a little as well)

- Visited Pacific coast of beautiful state of California (okay, this is another OMG that needs few more details)

- Confirmed with myself that I still have "it" (long story.... we might get to this in one of my future posts)
- Discovered my spirituality and working on expanding the knowledge and understanding of self and the universe

- Still looking for a balance in life.... hope that I am very close to finding it
- And of course I added two more years to my awesome life (it is getting better every day!)

What do you think? Not a bad list! The only item that is missing - "Kept up with Current Woman". But the good news is that there are quite a few draft posts that need to be completed. So, I was not completely ignoring my "child" ( I am sure you probably have a smirk on your face and thinking - another excuse. That is fine with me!).

And now let's get to the point of this post - time and the use of it. In the last couple of years I have learned how valuable time is. Don't get me wrong, I always knew the value of time and the fact that you cannot get it back. But I believe that as we get older we realize that it is also important to look back and make sure that you are happy with the way you spent your time. And of course  make sure that your are happy moving forward!

Time and time again we hear or say "I should have...". So why don't you suggest that person to and why don't you? Maybe it was not the right time (here is that time word again). Except it but don't give up the subject or the idea. Catch it at another more favorable time and you will succeed! Just remember, do not wait for the perfect time - it does not exist! Live your life!

Confused yet? It is okay! It will all make sense at the right time!

You might not get all of the points that I am trying to bring to your attention in this post. Here are two important points I would like you to take out of this post:

1. You can wait for time but it will not wait for you.
2. If you don't manage the time, it will manage you.

It is a fantastic feeling to get back to writing and I hope you enjoy this little rumble. Big shout-out to my girl May - thanks for helping me get back on track! And thank you to Alex!

I would also like to hear your thoughts on your relationship with time.
