The Best of 2013

By Amra B. 

2013 has been a crazy year for me: there were ups and downs, amazing moments and those that I wish didn't happen. I traveled a lot this year, met some amazing people, lost my baby Mede (my dog), discovered body attack and body combat classes, learned how to eat healthy even in the most difficult situations (like when I am traveling and there is no access to healthy food), and started a tradition of taking time and refueling myself by visiting inspiring places. 

Some of the most important life lessons that I learned this year: 

  • Your life is a reflection of your state of mind
  • Don't take yourself too seriously 
  • Those who accept their destiny don't deserve a better destiny
  • Life knocks you out, but the difference between those who are happy/fulfilled and those who are not is how many times they get up afterwards
  • If you want an incredible life, you have to build it yourself
  • There is no secret to incredible body, you just have to work hard in the gym and stop putting trash in your mouth
  • Never settle; there is always incredible people, places, and activities out there for you to discover
  • Many of us were just born lucky and some were never given a chance; if you have your health, freedom, and a safe home, you are exceptionally lucky! 
  • Praise your accomplishments; there are many things that you have done incredibly well this year! 

Wishing you a very happy 2014! May you be healthy, happy, and may all your dreams come true!
