INSP has been asking vendors from across the street paper network to write letters to their 25-year-old self to mark the end of INSP’s 25th anniversary year. Two Liceulice vendors, Mara (63) and Bojan (42), write about the importance of family and hard work.
At 25 I got married and my daughter Tijana was born. As soon as I saw my daughter’s face I knew life was beautiful. I loved spending time with her, singing her songs, playing together with her and taking care of her hygiene. I also bought her one nice doll.
My wish for everyone, not just 25-year-olds, is to behave nicely, to try their best to work, to fight every day and to enjoy their lives.
When I was 25 I was maybe a bit more hardworking, resourceful and also a bit cleverer than I am now. But, my music taste has stayed the same – I still adore classical music.
My advice to all young people is: brains over brawn. Invest in your mind when the time is right so you have less regrets later.
Check back in every day over the festive period for more #VendorLetters.
