I’m Darja and I’m not just clumsy.
I found myself on this planet Earth, where I’ve been living for 30-something more or less turbulent years. My home is Slovenia and I live a quite positive lifestyle. I love long mornings, drinking coffee with oat milk (sometimes spilling more of it than I actually drink it), but most of all I enjoy baking bread (oh yes, that crispy crust when it comes out of the oven and goes directly in between my teeth!). I enjoy meaningful conversations (and this is not only with the two of my black furry creatures) and I like to hang out (and this is not only with my man). I approach the world with playful curiosity and I believe with all my heart that there is something to learn from everyone.
I am forced to live with a scary little monster called “the MS”. She follows me wherever I go – she is with me whenever I fall (which, BTW, I already master to perfection), and she always stays to see the whole charade I usually put on trying to pull myself back up on my wobbly legs (without attracting too much attention, of course). And when this happens I mumble to myself how it really doesn’t matter how many times you kiss the concrete, what matters is that you keep getting up. And now, after 15 delightful years of such glorious and inglorious adventures, I feel competent enough to:
- Add my voice to raising the awareness on multiple sclerosis
- Be a smart cookie about life that is full of obstacles but at the same time fulfilling and colourful
- Be carefree, have fun and carry on regardless
Thinking out loud, rambling on paper and surrounding myself with a gang of positive-spirited people, I’ve managed to find myself in this exciting life I lead with my MS. Ever so confused and laughing at myself, I continue to search for balance, laying it all bare and exposed in this tiny little corner of the vast online universe. I really am not just clumsy – I am clumsy, but I do it with style!
This is going to be so much fun; I can’t wait!
