Lookin’ back!

Can’t even believe the year of 2014 has come to an end. It flew by super fast and here I am reminiscing. I love the fact that I have this blog, it allows me to look back at the good and bad times. It’s life and it goes up and down. That’s what this year has been for me, up and down. I’ve had some great moments and a few bad ones as well. Thankfully more good than bad, many more good than bad. I’ve learned how to say No and stand my ground, I’ve also learned to put myself first in certain situations. I’ve traveled and spent time with some amazing people. I’ve realized even more how much my family means to me and how much love is there. Overall it’s been a great year I must say because I choose to think about the positives instead of negatives.

I’m looking forward to 2015 and what it has in store for me. I’m turning 30 in seven days and that is a huge milestone in itself.

I wish my family, friends, my blogging friends and everyone else around the globe a happy and prosperous 2015.

I’ll end this year of blogging with some of my favorite pictures of 2014.

What is success?

I spent this weekend in Jönköping with students from Sweden and Bosnia. Came home inspired and ready to work. I met young people who have done so much for themselves and others. Some speak on it more, but in the end we could all agree that in order to be successful you have to love what you do.

Another manic monday

Coming back to work after a weekend of work is always stressful. It means maybe you didn’t do everything you intended to do that weekend as well as you piling on more work because you did have a work weekend with ideas flowing and problems arising that now need to be solved. Well, that is the case for me at the moment, so much to do, with so little time to do it…

Wish me luck!

Crazy 24 hours

The last 24 hours have been crazy. Started last night with me turning my apartment upside down looking for my glasses. For those of you wondering if I found them I sorry that I have to say that I didn’t. And when Dina arrived around 9 PM the search continued. I even stopped by my office.

Then, what started as a girls night ended up as a mini party. We ended up going to bed after 2AM. At 7.15 Dina ran into my room in a panic screaming we had overslept. The alarm was set to 6.30, or at least that’s what we tought. We got ready in 30 minutes and got in a taxi and headed to the station to get the train to Stockholm. Thank God J was going and getting on the train 20 minutes later and could pick up breakfast for us all.

Our workday in Stockholm has been good. Well, everything but the food. The tagline for this weekend is ‘Don’t mess with a Bosnian mans food.’

We decided to skip the dinner as the same food was being served and got some Thai food. We are now back at the hotel, in our PJ’s about to watch the Sweden-Montenegro game.

Have a good evening lovelies!

Super excited, I need a few days off!!!

#smotra2014

So, every year three of the biggest Bosnian organizations in Sweden organize a Day of Culture which includes song and dance. This year was no exception. We were in Borås, Sweden 9-11 of May. It’s a lot hard work but always a lot of fun. My job this year was really stressful. I went from speaking at the opening ceremony to actin as a backstage manager to collecting money for charity to helping people out with whatever they needed. Didn’t really get to watch the show at all.

Anyway, here are some of the official pictures and some other day I’ll do a post with my private pictures.

Thank You

It’s been a super busy weekend, like I anticipated. When I came home last night around 9.30 PM I was exhausted. But, that wasn’t just it. More so than anything else I was thankful…

A huge Thank You goes out to two special people who did an awesome job. I put my trust in you and you made me proud.
