We all dream about the perfect life, life without sorrows stress and fears, life full of love joy and happiness. We create the perfect plan to avoid any difficulties and obstacles in our lives, but only to get disappointed and angry as life never follows our plan. The reality of everyday life often is bitter arduous and painful, and therefore as a result we get annoyed frustrated and depressed. Does it mean that we cannot have a happy life? I do not think so, regardless of what has happened to me I still believe that life is about fun and happiness.
I went trough quite a lot in life and on this website I would like to show you how I dealt with difficult situations in my life. I would like the show you how my beliefs
and hopes changed over the years. How I learned to change what I can change and accept what I cannot change. How I learned to turn all the bad situations life threw
at me to my advantage.
I felt down thousands of times, I was pushed down and hurt hundreds of times, but I always got up and fought to get a smile back on my face. Whoever knows me, knows that I almost always have smile on my face. Is it because I have always had everything I wanted? Read my story, then you will understand...
Whatever I write on these pages it is not because I read it somewhere in a guidebook of life. No, there is not a guidebook on life. Everything I write is because I believe in it and because I have been living it. I cannot tell you, what you should do in your life in order to be happy. No, I have no idea what you should do. I can only show you what I have done in my life, how I learned to steer my life in the direction I wanted to go. How I came to a point that I am living my dream. Maybe through this, I can point you in a direction which will lead you to a better and happier life. Our happiness does not depend on others, it does not depend on our bank account or on our circumstances. No, it depends only on us, on our attitude to life.
There are four sections in this website. In the section “About the Author” I am briefly telling my story. In the section “Toastmasters” I am talking about my
journey with Toastmasters, which helped me a lot in life – not only in public speaking, but above all gave me back my faith in people and in life. In this section I
publish my speeches which mostly are based on my experiences in life. More details about this section you will find in the “Toastmasters-About”.
The Imaginary Friend section contains a series of letters written to my Imaginary Friend where I talk about my everyday life, about my beliefs and about my hopes. Where I am describing different situations from my life, when I was down and how I overcame it. The section “Imaginary Friend – about” describes who “Imaginary Friend” is and give some more details about the letters/emails.
The last section - Travels - contains stories based on some of the travels I have done over the time.
