Last fall, I made this short film in my birth city of Sarajevo in Bosnia. I named it “Sarajevo Fairy Tale” because the city inspired me to trust myself, practice self-love, commit to my bliss, and express my creativity freely.
Here is the link to view it:
I used to have mixed feelings and confusion about my identity since I moved around and lived in different places all over the world. It used to drive me crazy when people asked me about my accent because it was so hard to get into all the details about my life story with a stranger. Sometimes I felt people tried to exoticize me or put me in a box based on my looks, my accent, and their idea of Bosnia without getting to know who I really am.
With life experience and a lot of heartbreak, I realized that I and all of us are very much unique individuals on our own journeys and that to know ourselves and others has nothing to do with where we were born or have lived (although exploring and enjoying these places is a part of our journey).
We are eternal cosmic spirits that got the opportunity to experience a 3D world so that we can explore all the universal possibilities. How amazing is that! Enjoy this incredible opportunity – live and love to the fullest! 💖🎶😉🎶💖
