10 lessons I learned from Sex and The City | Monday Confessions

New York, New York

Ok, I admit. Today’s Monday Confessions didn’t come to me naturally. Usually they are composed of something I ve been thinking a lot lately, something that I couldn’t wait to share with you or my previous life experiences. Its summer. Time to rest and relax without having too many thoughts. My visit to New York made me re-watch pretty much all the episodes of Sex and the City which is why I wanted to share this more of a fun post with you.

I learned so much from my all time favourite TV Show, and before you start reading all the tips, I though what better time to show you then while sharing with you the last outfit post from New York, right? Hope you enjoy this light hearted topic, and let me know if I missed anything important!

Ok, priznajem danasnje ispovesti nisu došle prirodno kako to obično biva. Uglavnom pišem na temu o kojoj razmišljam duže vreme. Sada je leto. Vreme je da se svi opustimo i ne razmišljamo na teške teme.  Moja poseta Njujorku me inspirisala da odgledam sve ili skoro sve epizode Seks i Grada, pa sam zato želela da podelim ovaj post sa vama.

Naučila sam mnogo toga gledajući ovu seriju, a pre nego što kretete čitati, moram vam još reći da sam odlučila da pišem na ovu temu zato što je na redu poslednji outfit iz Njujorka. Kada drugo ako ne sad? Zar ne? Nadam se da će vam se dopasti ova zabavna tema, a vi mi recite ako sam nesto propustila.

The Lessons

1.Your friends might be loves of your life

No matter what your current love life situation is,dont forget that your friends really are important. Even now when I am in a happy relationship I get so consumed with love I have for my real friends that I know they are simply all I need.

2.He doesn’t have to be perfect

Charlotte settled for Harry despite his hairy back. He was far from everything she dreamed of, but he was the one that made her happy. Lesson learned!

3.You will never be entirely satisfied

Once you reach a goal a new one will appear. When I opened my blog I told myself I will be happy when  I reached certain things. I reached those goals years ago, but I cant say that I am fully at my goal line. There is always more you could do – its in human nature to not be satisfied, and trust me its nothing to do with happiness.

4.What you think you don’t want might actually be what you need

Again referencing Charlotte. She wanted a beautiful man, with mannerism that resembles hers. She found something completely different. So did Miranda. So did Anthony. All of them ended up being happily ever after . (I know its only a TV show, I really do I promise)

5.It can happen to anyone

If you fall pick yourself back up. Everybody fails and falls and comes to obstacles in life, but thats just great. Remember the episode when Carrie fell on the catwalk? She got her self right up with a smile. You should do the same when life tries to knock you down

6.Dont settle for just anything

Even though we shouldn’t aim for perfection – we shouldn’t either settle for just anything. You should know who you are, respect your self and aim for what you deserve, not for just bare bare minimum.

7.Never dump someone on a post-it

I mean not literally, cause I hope you weren’t gonna do this anyway. When Berger dumped Carrie via a post-it it was clear he wasn’t a good guy anyway. Everything you do in life should be done with style and kindness, otherwise you are in Berger category.

8.Heartbreak is important part of life

I ve been there, you ve been there, Carrie has been there. I think that a smart man once said :“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills.” Ok, that smart man was Hemingway and he wasn’t the most optimistic man ever, but he has the point. In order to grow you must go through hardships.

9.Never lose touch with who you are.

This is probably my absolute favourite of all. When Carrie meets Alexandr Petrovsky she abandons who she is. She finds excuses for all of his behaviour and leaves her one true love – New York – in order to be with him. Truth is that in life you need to adapt to situations, but never, ever lose yourself.

10.Being totally overdresses and fabulous is ok.

Loving yourself, having confidence,overdressing and being totally fabulous is ok. Its important to remember that putting effort is something you should do for your inner self every once in a while. If you don’t put effort why would anyone else do so.

1.Možda su vaši prijatelji – ljubavi vašeg života

Be obzira na vašu trenutnu ljubavnu situaciju, ne zaboravite važnost prijatelja. Čak i ako sam u srećnoj ljubavnoj vezi često me ljubav prema prijateljima totalno opsedne, do činjenice da tvitujemo jedni drugima koliko se volimo. Ups. Prijatelji su nekada sve što vam treba.

2.On ne mora biti savršen

Šarlot se udala za Harija iako su joj smetale neke površne stvari kao njegova dlakava ledja. Haha. On nije bio sve što o čemu je ona sanjala, ali je učinio srećnom. Lekcija zapamćena.

3.Nikada nećete biti potpuno zadovoljni

Kada dostignete jedan cilj, tu je sledeći. Kada sam otvorila blog postavila sam sebi neke ciljeve, iako sam ih dostigla pre nekoliko godina, to nije bilo dovoljno. Ljudska rasa jednostavno nije stvorenada bude zadovoljna onim što imamo,a to i nije toliko loše jer uvek težimo ka boljem. Verujte mi da satisfakcija nema veze sa srećom, moguće je biti srećan iako niste dostigli sve što želite.

4.Ono što ne želite je možda baš ono što vam treba.

Opet se vraćam na Šarlot. On a je želela savršenog muškarca, priču iz bajke. Našla je nešto sasvim drugačije. Kao i Miranda. Kao i Antoni. Svi su na kraju bili srećni. (Da, da znam da je u pitanju samo serija, ali ipak, ubedjena sam da je tako)

5.Može se desiti svakome

Ako padnete, podnignite se na noge. Svakome se u životu desi da padne, ne uspe i svi mi naidjemo na neke prepreke. To je sve ok. Setite se kada je Keri pala na modnoj pisti, obrukla se ali i izvukla jer se sa osmehom podigla i nastavila dalje. Kada vam život baci dole, vi ustanite.

6.Nemojte se zadovoljiti bilo čim

Iako sam rekla da ne težite ka savršenstvu, nemojte se ni zadovoljiti sitnicama. Treba da znate ko ste, koliko zaslužujete i ka tome idite. Najosnovnije nije dovoljno.

7.Nemojte nekog ostaviti putem poruke na papiriću

Naravno, ne mislim bukvalno, jer se nadam da to svakako niste ni nameravali. Kada je Berger ostavio Keri napisavši joj kratku poruku na lepljivom papiriću, svi su se zgrozili njegovim ponašanjem. U životu sve mozete reći na pravi način, zato budite topli, pažljivi i nećete spasti u kategoriju Berger.

8.Slomljeno srce je bitan deo života

Meni se desilo, vama se desilo, desilo se i našoj junakinji Keri. Mislim da je pametan čovek jednom rekao:”Svet svakoga slomi, ali naposletku ispadne da su neki jači na slomljenim mestima. One koje ne slomi, njih ubije.” Ok, znam da je taj čovek bio Hemingvej i on zaista nije bio najveći optimista, ali to nije poenta. Poenta je da kako bismo u životu rasli moramo proći kroz veoma teške trenutke.

9.Nemoj izgubiti dodir sa samom sobom

Ovo je moja omiljena lekcija. Kada Keri upozna umetnika Aleksandra Petrovskog ona napusti sva svoja mišljenja. Pronadje izgovore za njegovo ponašanje i ostavi svoju jedinu ljubav -Njujork – kako bi bila sa njim. Istina je da se u životu morate prilagoditi, ali morate ostati dosledni sebi.

10.Preterano se sredjvati je sasvim ok

Volite sebe, budite puni samopouzdanja, oblačiti se izvanredno je ok. Bitno je zapamtiti da se nekada morate potruditi oko sebe jer zašto bi to bilo ko drugi uradio ako nećete vi.

    Mnogo volim da citam tvoje postove. :) Tako su lepo napisani, optimisticni su, a vrlo realni.
    Vidi se da si obrazovana, da konstantno radis na sebi, a pritom si vrlo prizemna. Sto je valjda i odlika svih velikih ljudi. :)
    Jako si lepa na ovim fotografijama. :) Samo nastavi tako. Bravo Tamara !

    Lep pozdrav ti saljem ! :)

    I surprisingly wasn’t ever into Sex and the City. But now that you’ve posted all the life lessons you’ve learned from the show, I’m beginning to take a hint and start watching it! Btw, love the outfit you wore on your last day in NYC. xx
