“Two roads diverged in a wood,
and I…
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
Robert Frost

About Maya
by myself…

“I want to be remembered as the girl who always smiles even when her heart is broken, and the one that could always brighten up your day even if she couldn’t brighten her own.”

It is being said that one’s development of character is much influenced by families, ways of upbringing, environment, and other circumstances. We cannot choose our destiny, just carry our fate and accept. Therefore, stronger of us do not accept so easily what they might consider injustice and struggle through their lives trying to make a change for the better against all odds.
Interesting is to notice the lives of some could be just so straightforward, without any especially noticeable events, others could be difficult, filled with unexpected twists and turns, tremendous hardship, suffering, loss, sorrow, loneliness, you name it…If we imagine life as a piece of white fabric, this could manifest itself like a dark thread weaved through it.
Often cruel life events can cripple its victim and the consequences are dreadful, especially for a weaker person, but for stronger personality victory is possible, because all difficulties can become a challenge…

“Destiny is not a matter of chance
it is a matter of choice
It is not a thing to wait for
It is a thing to be achieved”
W.J. Bryant

And such was the destiny of Maya…..
I was born in Central Europe, the country also called “Bohemia”.
Do not intend to continue now with my life story…. although my life was so rich in events of unusual, peculiar, and exceptional nature.
Nevertheless, the reason why I am mentioning all this here is that I am living proof of an individual where harsh life events could influence the formation of the character.
I became a woman of iron will and discipline and what’s more, of independence. |
Managed to overcome losses, which were so generous to me that visited me 3 times in my life and forced me to start all over, again and again, plainly put, from scratch. (Not stock market fluctuation though;-)
Nevertheless, I managed to stand back on my feet without any help whatsoever and in a foreign country to make it “easier” on me.

With such “training” I became a strong leader, always being in a position to train and help others and in a way also became bottomless well for my friend’s secrets confided in me. I am very compassionate and whenever possible, involved with organizations fighting for a better environment, fight against poverty, helping animals…

Otherwise, I am very sensitive as a woman and human being, loving nature, animals, and beauty and have many interests…..reading, (especially philosophically oriented) piano, yoga, meditation, ongoing studies about alternative medicine and healing with a healthy lifestyle and more, then a long walk with my dog,…
I received many offers to become a model, tried it, however, I am too intellectual and independent thinker to be involved in something where the “brain” is secondary to the body.
Always approach any task in front of me with enthusiasm and dedication. Curiously I also met in my life such unusual opportunities as to be able to help save tremendous suffering and even the life of an individual (but this would be again another story).

Honesty, loyalty, and sincere friendship I do value highly, always optimistic, never admit defeat, just learn from mistakes, and go on. I believe that people if they want something strongly enough and believe in themselves, can achieve it. Some need more help and encouragement, but this is just an added ingredient available from those who love to help and share. For myself, I have yet to find out what the word “boredom” means.

Lived in several countries, to have it more “colorful”‘ under communists, socialist and capitalists and traveled extensively.  Speaking 6 languages and never stopped reading and learning.
From a professional point, having a financial background (economist) I worked in this country as a financial adviser, managing my own company.
Today, I am a language teacher, writer, but would like to enrich that activity a bit with the freelance writer activity.

For some time, in the past, I have been involved with marketing, although as only a part-time activity. Like many others, I sieved through the labyrinth of endless offers, some good, some bad, some outright worthless. With my background, it was easier for me to spot the real value of offers, see-through dishonesty, and also “blew away some bubbles without substance.”

I would hope that my advice and possible help to those who still struggle, or are ready to give up, need something better and/or of more value to work with, wish to succeed and such cases, expand their knowledge, might consider to follow me and eventually find out that my suggestions and help could provide real depth and great value to them in many areas.
I am offering you a site quite filled with knowledge, wisdom
and more…

Below, please find a song for you…

Very special, reflecting fully my life. Kind of tells my story about being forced to run from the heat behind the back. When one must do this several times in life, it becomes a new lesson learned, over and over.
At first, it makes you tired, then growing stronger. You must fight if you want to survive.
Accept new circumstances, new rules, everything.
Then you get used to it. It’s your destiny.
At that moment of accepting a new life, one must live that. Because now you are here to show your strength and possibly become a source of knowledge and experiences not that common, which you could share, better say, must share.

Knowing some more is like having some more. One can share money, another one knowledge, and experiences. I am here to share the later…
You are welcomed to my site and I am sure you’ll find something new here, perhaps interesting, unusual, worthy to look at, entertaining?
Just try it. Ask questions! I’ll respond!
Let’s enjoy life!
Best regards,
Maya

Жанна Бичевская – Сжигаю мосты
transl.by Maya

Burning Bridges

Burning leaves smell in the garden.
Farewell, I will not come here again.
The paper is smoking, the leaves are turning black –
The bridges I burn…

Black leaves, the hand heavy becomes,
Bickford cord smoke a line
The last leaves, the trees are empty –
I’m burning bridges….

Farewell, farewell rendition
Autumn leaves burn like gunpowder.
And the drops on the glassed like tears are pure
I’m burning bridges

I will not come to this garden anymore,
I’m not going to come back
Until the early green last star –
I’m burning bridges.
