Lionheart

   Today marks a bittersweet day for me.

  Today,I chose letting the memories to  resurface and to mend my soul for no other reason than finding the inner peace I’ve been looking for.At some times,I may have found it but other days,like this one,makes me feel the pain I have wished so badly to erase.

      Quite frankly,how could you define pain?

      What is the first thing your mind drifts to while thinking about pain?

       How could you make it go away?

       How could you accept and eventually live with it?

       Pain could really have a good thing within it?

  It is wisely said that God gives us no more than we cannot handle.Challenges,troubles,obstacles,sorrows,they usually come in the most unexpected shapes,at the most uncertain times of our lives.We cannot deny them,we cannot hide from them like they would dissapear in a blink of an eye,we cannot run far away,we just can’t back down until we are strong enough to face them properly and knock them down.Without any weapon,any help or perhaps any clear judgement,we have nothing and no one but ourselves in this battle.Raw,insecure,vulnerable,scarred,fearful,yet faithful.We are all what we have got.

      As every emotion that we are blessed to experience throughout our lives,I tend to believe that our spiritual development comes closer while going through lifechanging situations in front whom we cannot be nothing else but powerful.We have no other choice left but get up,stand our ground and rise.This crucial feeling of having the strength in front of the unknown is scarcely acknowledged by ourselves,but I guess that a little part within us knows we can do it.This unsignificant portion that is screaming at us that we can overcome any inner struggle that we may deal with and eventually,heal our minds and souls.You know what? Today I chose to believe in that small part of my brain,which told me that whatever I may have faced in the past,whoever I may have lost psyhically along the way could not break me to the point of not seeing my life anymore.

   Thruthfully,pain is,amongst other emotions,the most daring one,which steals so much from us,leaving us wounded,heartbroken,lost,without any further direction or even an escape plan.It hurts a lot,I know.However,I like to believe that despite what we have to lose in the process,we could still gain something back.We could learn something from our heartbreaking moments that had happened to us and manage to expand our horizons of thinking,loving and appreciating every single thing and person we have by our side.

As for me,I think that the pain of loss had taught me a lot about life and its authenticity.I’ve come to learn that regardless the ache that will undoubtedly be printed in our hearts,it could never come close to the pure happiness,priceless memories,laughs,lessons and undying love we had gathered with our dear ones.These are what I will remember the most.

  You need to discover your lionheart and bring out the fierceness you didn’t even know it existed inside you.

The Black Cat,Blue Sea Award

    Recently,I’ve came across one of the most beautiful blogs I’ve seen and read,with so many inspirational and moving posts,which involves so much  talent,passion and dedication that surely left a mark upon many bloggers, myself included.Therefore,to receive a nomination from the lovely Ademola was an absolute pleasure and honor for this award,which is actually the first one for me of this kind.Thank you,girl!I appreciate you!

     As a little insight of what this award basically consists of,it is all from and dedicated to bloggers,who strive to write for everybody,regardless of the viewers,stats or followers.This award means an expression of gratitude to the nominee,as well as for your own self,who have managed to open up your soul,discover,inspire,love,learn and encourage further through your own stories and lessons.Everyone matters here,because I truly believe we become richer and happier by sharing,giving and inspiring,even without our knowledge,our fellow bloggers.I feel like every day I could learn something new and enciting from my readers.This is the main purpose why blogging will always remain my happy place.

   The rules are the following:

  • Anybody nominated can nominate up to seven other bloggers.
  • Anybody nominated answers the three questions imposed by the nominee.
  • The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions,as long as their purpose is to get to know each other better,without offending anyone.

The questions I am about to answer are:

1.When writing or drafting a blog post,what message do you try to convey to your readers?

   You know,I never thought about this for as long or as deep as probably I should have by now.Fact is,my greatest purpose by expressing and opening up my soul here is and will always remain the one which tells me that I could make somebody happy.I could make someone cry.Hell,I could be someone’s source of inspiration.I could make a difference in someone’s daily thoughts,feelings or brighten up their day.I could have the power to evoke some pure,authentic feelings through my words.My own pieces could have a positive impact over someone’s mind and soul.These thoughts literally make my heart warm and keep me going,because I am a believer in the good of everything.I believe in people,especially,and the raw way of healing one another by sticking together,loving and empowering each other through it all.

    So,I guess that through each post I create,I try to stand by what I put my faith in and desire and that is to be able to lighten up someone’s day,even if that means putting up a large smile on their faces.

2.What is your main source of inspiration when writing a blog post?

     I think that when writing something soulful on my blog,I want that the emotions I pour into each post to be recognized and identified with,as long as it is about something my readers could relate with.So,I must admit I am inspired by countless things,from stars,flowers,books,a loving couple waking down the street to the sun that’s smiling at me from the outside,as well as kindness and love between people,I truly find something quite fascinating and rather intriguing in everything that surrounds me.Anything that can spark some type of emotion within me is worth the story and could change someone’s day or mood for the better.

3.What is your greatest strength and your gravest weakness?

   Well,that took me some time to think about,but I believe my greatest strength always comes from the unconditional love I am receiving from the ones around me,especially my loving and dear family.I guess that this kind of undeniable love that makes me wanna be a better human,do better than yesterday and treasure much more all the blessings in my life is something anyone,I hope,would feel at some stage in their lives.It is unique,indeed.

    Regarding my weakness,I must shamefully admit in front of you that me and chocolate in the same room is not good at all.Or pizza.Or anything edible.Who feels me here?
