The pursuit of happiness

  At the end of this challenging,yet indeed rewarding year that flew more quickly than I could comprehend,I choose to reflect upon myself and my most beloved treasures.

  Looking in retrospective,I believe that this year brought me more than I could ever hoped for.I laughed a lot.I cried.I smiled.I loved deeply.I cared.I won.I learned.I did.I achieved.I lived.There is nothing more gratifying than simply acknowledging all the emotions that have enveloped me,that I have felt with such an intensity,as well as that have been a part of me during all the encounters I had this year.To feel whatever I felt the need to,without any constraint,remains one of the best feelings in the world.To be able to express myself in order to find answers to whatever I was looking for on my own is the greatest way to know,discover and love myself more each day.Still,I am incredibly overhelmed by every single thing,experience,lesson and blessing that I have the power to count.Regardless of its nature,each moment was different and was meant to made me feel something.That something made me evolve,think further and broaden my horizons in ways that I didn’t even dared to think about before.

  You see,if is one thing that I don’t believe in,that is coincidences.Thefore,I am aware that everything that I have been through,both good and less good,was destined for me and was something that I could handle.Better or worse,time had told or showed me.Either way,reflecting upon this,I do not think that my sorrows or bad times didn’t play a massive part in my self-development process.I like to see them as essential pages,without this chapter couldn’t be truly complete or without I couldn’t treasure and acknowledge my happiness entirely afterwards.

  As this year slowly draws to a nostalgic close,I feel the need to express my pure emotions towards everything I have obtained,as well as I have lost,every memory that I am filled with in my heart and soul,every person that I have met and  that have managed to change me in ways I couldn’t imagined.I could not wrap my mind on how I have all these people by my side and all the loving memories to hold onto and to treasure deeply.

  I feel a better,happier and the richest person here just by thinking that my life had and will always have the same pursuit that will continue to guide me faithfully throughout this crazy journey-happiness.

  May this new year lead you to discover your own pursuit and to never,ever give up on anything that makes your heart race.That’s what life is all about.

Why I write?

  Since I stumbled upon “The Everyday Inspiration” course by random these past few days,I decided that it is an ideal opportunity for myself to increase my writing skills and build up my confidence by sharing my stories and seeing where my imagination is going to take me throughout this quite interesting challenge.So,what better way to discover more of myself than to join and give the best that I’ve got?

  Day 1 comes with a pretty classic,yet still unconventional question that I find quite essential in our inner development as bloggers,because it is the kind of question that have endless answers,countless stories to relate to,thus different perspectives for each and every one of us.Seems easy to say it out loud,yet difficult to actually think about it in its complicated entirety.The way we perceive the act itself of writing and we set our goals for what is to come next in the future say a lot about our capacities,as well as the abilities to organize our blogs and to evolve,because I see writing as a way to connect spiritually and emotionally with yourself,as well as with other fellow bloggers.

  Hitherto,I’ve been dancing with the words and ideas wrapped up in my head throughout my several posts,which managed to give me so much pride,joy and satisfaction to my own self since the very first one I’ve published,in such a short time.But do you want to know why? Because of you.My readers.The ones who,through such a mere appreciation,good wish or kind thought brought me so many wonderful feelings,a too enthusiastic heart and an incredible trust in my gift.That is still mind-blowing to me and I am forever grateful for doing what I love and constantly evolving into a better and happier person.

  Thefore,to be able to answer thruthfully to the main question “Why do I write?” ,I would say it is because I strive to make a difference.I strive to be that positive thought that could make someone’s day a little better and smile larger,merely because we ought to help,encourage and spread our lessons,bright ideas,kindness and guilty pleasures to those around us every single day.

  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 days.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,steady,excited and keep me going on the right track,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.

   I reach after to inspire,to learn,to discover,to grow and to believe in what it is mine,while being inspired and touched by the ones around me.
