Hilâl means “half moon” in Turkish language. I chose the name mainly because of the new crescent-shaped two-hole beads I used in this design. And I must say, they are awesome! It was LOVE at ﬁrst sight, and I am looking forward to play with them some more. Much more.
And while enjoying greatly my new tiny, colorful treasures, for some totally not bead-related reasons it was a very difﬁcult time in my life. Everything was changing, and while I was longing for a new lifestyle over the previous year or two, there were some things happening I didn’t wish for. Something was fading away – as the old moon is vanishing.
Finally I understood that my life is always full, no matter what. There may be an eclipse or a harvest moon, it doesn’t matter. There will always be good times after the bad and vice versa. Sometimes I may enjoy it greatly, and sometimes I may cry and shout.
But I will always try to do my best. Enough or not, criticized or appreciated, it doesn’t matter. I am the one who decides how I see myself and the world I live in.
Which I believe, is beautiful.
