Finally at home after a great spontaneous trip to Guanacaste, and I´m so inspired now, I´m inspired to create, and today, I´m an optimist.
Each day is another opportunity for you, for us, to live the life a little less afraid, and a little (or a lot more) creativity. Choose yourself, listen to your own heart and not what the world says. Choose yourself, listen to your own heart and not what the world says. You have a lot to give, your abilities can develop any project. Let be surprised to see what your mind and hands could build. Put aside your preconceptions of everything you can't. You can.
The ocean breeze puts a mind at ease. Sailing through these waves, small, precious, and between sailboats, being out to sea in complete and absolute silence, I was able to understand some things about happiness; calm on the outside, changing on the inside.
Alone, but loving my family and friends. In the worse time, remember, you at least have the ocean to comfort you. It has no cost to enjoy the ocean.
Please don't let your struggles and difficult days plant fear in your heart.
The life you have led doesn’t need to be the only life you have. Go find something new and live without regrets. When last did you go out in search of something new and beautiful? It’s been too long?
Daily I wouldn't have expected to go to the ocean, because honestly, I´m busy, you know, so, I´m glad about my decision. I like the beach, especially in summer, sitting at my favorite spot, with beautiful sunlight, painting, and spending time in my self.
For a few weeks, I took a break from daydreaming to be present enough to appreciate the view. Time heals almost everything. Give it time.
Do you ever take a moment to just breathe and exist without wanting for anything? Here’s a reminder to do just that, take a moment now, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, just stop and breathe. Connect yourself with the creativity and the inspiration. Time is precious, do only what makes you feel good.
I want to try many different things during this year, and I don’t need to be “the best” to do it, because that I really need is have more beautiful evenings, before the excellence, the productivity, or competence. I want to be happy; I want love and calm, and every day I will see how to solve it.
Imagine if we all waited until we were perfectly ready to show up. If we all waited until we were not scared. Waiting to be “the best” or “the most talented” to illustrate, paint or whatever thing. Hidden behind the door to be the ideal or the most talented designer, pianist, chef, or whatever.
Don't let your misfortunes tell you that you do not deserve anything else. Remember: if you dare to believe in yourself, new doors will open; if you choose to carry on, the chances will come again. One day at a time you just have to hang in there through it all and trust that when the right time comes life will unfold itself in the best way.
We are not our output. We are not what we produce, we are not how much we make or the legacies we attempt to build. We are simply here, and hopefully while we’re here, we are present for it.
Sometimes being insecure and uncomfortable while moving is the only way to start getting somewhere. Maybe this is the year to try something new in the coffee corner. Sometimes being unsure while you move is the only way to start getting somewhere, and then, check how the new lamp will look like in the corner, paint the door, make whatever little project at home, or just go out for a little walk. You are the resource you need to get started.
My plan for example, is just to fall in love with myself, the world and life, again and again. I hope to write good articles, take pretty photos and videos, and step by step construct a lovely life.
For this year, all I want some semblance of consistency and feeling of safety and security. Life isn’t just never-ending ups, it has downs and dark moments too; finally, life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself, and life is always full of beauty. Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind. Do you remember when you were just a kid and you said what you wanted to be when you become an adult? you still can. You have a little bit of the world's creativity, you have talent, you have ideas.
Let me tell you something. Life is beautiful wherever you are. And even though you spent the day inside, in a small room, without more than a table, a pencil and paper, even without seeing the light, even if you are alone, your mood got boosted to the fullest if you want. Make changes. It’s not the final situation because you are alive.
You need courage, and courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says: I’ll try again tomorrow. Setbacks are inevitable, it’s how you persevere that really distinguishes you from the rest.
Take care of your thoughts when you are alone and take care of your words when you are with people. Speaking to yourself with a bit more kindness every day! I highly recommend it, especially for those who have struggled with a problems and broken heart.
It’s always worth investing time in enjoying your own company, do it! Love the life, lose the plot, you are the one person you can count on living with for the rest of your life!
Lamento mi ausensia por aquí, sé que he estado algo callada durante el último año, pero entré a la facultad de derecho y eso representó grandes cambios en mi vida. He llevado bloques completos todo el tiempo, estudio absolutamente todos los días, y aunque leer me guste mucho, no deja de ser agotador y difícil de llevar con el resto de mis actividades laborales y personales. A pesar de esto, tuve un año súper productivo y amoroso, quizás escribí menos, pero viví mucho. ¡Te envío todo mi amor, y espero que estés teniendo un gran día!
