My Superheroes

Yesterday (22.03.2016) it was 10 months since my last surgery (11th surgery for the last 11 years).

For those who do not know, I had a severe motorcycle accident 11 years ago. For this post it is less important.

A thought just came across my mind and I asked myself how I met my Superheroes?

When we look back at our past, we can easily see why we are in this place where we are right now. Our every decision has led us to this exact point where we are at this moment. Somehow, when we look back, everything seems so logical, every single step we made. However, I know, when we are afflicted with any situation in life, nothing seems logical. We have a thousand questions in our heads.. and no answer.. Why? How? Why me? etc. etc..

What defines us, as a person, is that exact moment when something happens. If a problem “happens by accident”.. our attitude towards that problem – “it didn’t happen by accident”. We have made a decision how to react consciously. That exact moment defines us as a person. Our character. Our future. Not when everything goes smoothly in the life. No – no. On the contrary, when something hits you, when something hurts you.. your attitude defines you. Because the problem is not the problem, but your attitude towards it.

Personally, I do not like to talk about the problems, but the solutions.

My situation (one of them..) was, when my doctors in Belgrade told me that there is no solution for me so I should accept things as they are. They also said I should be glad I am alive. And, for me, it was not easy to accept it. Yes I am glad I am alive, but I don’t accept No for an answer, if I am sure that something is possible. Again, I don’t want to go into details, because it will take a while, it is a long story..

The point is that I have not surrendered, deep down I knew that there is a solution! I believe it!

And I just could accept what they told me, right? Instead of that, guided by my inner voice I have done some research and finally got in touch with my Superheroes. They don’t live in my country, nor speak my language.. but we had the same values, visions, the same common sense and the same goal.. the goal was to help me and to give me the opportunity to live a normal life again.

It is essential. It is the most important. Solution. Focus. 

So my focus has become my reality. That my decision of no surrendering has defined my future. And my Superheroes gave me back my faith in the good, in humanity, in that there is a solution for every problem if we want to solve it.. As well, that people with the right values still exist! We live in the world with wrong values, where people judge you based on material things, and in the fact the only thing that has no price, and what matters the most is your health.. So when you meet people like my Superheroes are, you realize that those people with real values still exist. Although in the minority, these people exist! I feel thankful for all they have done for me, and for what they still do (the recovery will take a while..) my gratitude is eternal, infinite.

And because of that, I want to dedicate this post to them.

Not a day goes by without thinking about them and how lucky and grateful I am. They are my Superheroes. Not those Superheroes from comics and movies, my Superheroes are super REAL. I adore to call them that, especially while I hug them! Ramon Cugat, Xavier Cusco, Roberto Seijas, Pedro Alvarez Diaz, as well as the whole foundation Garcia-Cugat. I LOVE YOU! Thank you is just a word, but my word has a deep meaning and it goes from the heart..

– My dear Superheroes this world desperately needs more people like you –

So, let me introduce myself. My name is Irina Vujaklija and I was born in Belgrade on 31 January 1979. Who am I? Love. I know, you will roll your eyes.. But that is how it is. Discovering my true self wasn’t an easy process. Constantly working on myself, learning by seeking answers to many questions, I have managed to overcome very complicated life situations. Among other things, my severe motorcycle accident in 2004. A life altering moment in just one second.
