Change-The chance to pursue your dreams?

   If is one essential thing I have learned and have counted on it faithfully by now,is that change is so damn good and such a bold move for those who dare to live.Be it about a change in your daily behaviour,thoughts,feelings,a change of background,a change of places ,of work,of plans or even a major change in your self development process,there is always something benefic,inspirational and merely refreshing in making a difference.

    With or without our will,we are faced with changes all the time.Life puts us on edge countlessly,in order to bring out what is the best within us,as well as to be a quick challenge for ourselves,whether or not we will lose our authenticity along the road. Regardless its nature,the way we cope with the effects that a change produces in our lives on a daily basis is the main difficulty here.While some may have a clear and healthy perspective of life,thinking with excitement and purely opening their hearts in front of a new opportunity to learn,grow and evolve,others may not have the same attitude of dealing with the insecurities and risks that a change might include.

     Nevertheless,what is right on this matter?

   First of all,change means SACRIFICE.Either we’re speaking about a relationship between two people,a family,a friendship situation or even getting a job or a place in a whole new city/country/state,you have to consider that along the countless hours of hardwork that had finally paid off,there has to be some sort of compromise that you need to overcome and that may or may not stand in the way of your utter happiness.Now,in order to do this,you have to prioritize your feelings,as well as your desires for your own self.You need to stand your ground and truly reflect on what does this new change will mean to you and your loved ones as well.You could answer yourself the following questions:

 Is this change going to be a step closer in fulfilling my dreams?

 Will it make me truly happy and content with myself,regardless how many people I may left behind?

 In 5 years from now,is my decision still going to make me proud?

 What will I gain is better from what will I have to lose in the process?

   Reaching this point,I tend to believe that no amount of questions could compete with your determined heart to achieve what you’ve got on your mind.There’s nothing stronger than what your soul tells you to do.So,just follow it.Follow your heart.Believe in your intuition.They can do no wrong.They would certainly lead you into the best place you could be at that certain stage in your life.

   Secondly,change expects TRUST.To have such a belief and confidence in yourself as to know that the differences and challenges that appear on your journey serve the main purpose of shaping you into a better,wiser,more experienced,as well as a happier human being is something not many people entirely own.Why not? This should all of us be asking.Why should we let fear or doubt dominate our hearts instead of joyful emotions that could actually do us some good,like faith,hope or elation for what is to come next? The world itself is made of changes.

    I guess that what a lot of us fail to realize at times is that believing in your own self is the best thing you could always do,regardless anything that may interfere unexpectedly in our lives.Thruth is,most of the changes that happen in life come  in the most unexpected shapes,perhaps at the most uncertain times.You cannot control what your life is going to bring to you,but you do have a say in what can or can not control you.It is all up to you,from how you look at your own person to how you interpret whatever it is  purposely given to you.Easy as that.

   Lastly,change involves BOLDNESS.As beneficial as change indeed is,it doesn’t always pay an easy price thus it takes a lot of courage to actually go for it and take a step forward towards living your dreams.It may seem unsure,unpredictable,scary at some times,but everything that matters is how you are going to take charge of your life and the decisions,along with the sacrifices you are willing or not to make.

  Personally,I love to embrace every change that comes my way and associate it with an ideal chance to develop myself,to expand my horizons of feeling and thinking,to discover,to learn,to become richer in knowledge and memories,as well as to evolve into the best person I could be.

  How do you perceive the changes you come across in life?

5 times Leonardo Di Caprio left us swooning 

 

   

    Leonardo Di Caprio is,without a single doubt,one of the most humble,talented,successful and greatest actors of all time,who is setting the cinematographic standards to higher and higher levels with each one of a kind role we get to see him portraying into the masterpieces he gave life. Movies like “The wolf of the Wall Street”(2013),”The aviator”(2004),”What’s eating Gilbert Grape”(1993),”The Great Gatsby”( 2013) and the iconic “Titanic” (1997) are just a few of the best rated films in history,which surely left a mark upon the world.

       His carreer in acting is currently blossoming and although he is acknowledged for his amazing skills in the world of cinema,he chose to use this platform for making the Earth heard through plenty of humanitarian actions and programs he is involved in,in order to make a difference into the enviromment.

   So,an outstanding actor,a commited enviromentalist,a good-looking guy…did I miss something?

   Oh,that’s right.With his first Oscar win of his career for the “Best actor in a leading role” in the well-known movie “The Revenant” travelling around the whole world and headlining every newspaper/magazine/article at the moment,Leonardo Di Caprio never cease to make us swoon and be head over heels for him.Whether it’s because some incredible scene from an epic movie,an awards show or some wise words he delivered in some live TV show,Di Caprio could be easily recognized as the epitome of perfection. Girls,you feel me.

   But here’s the thing.Once with Leo’s big and well deserved win,we sadly need to say goodbye to our favorite memes,which kept us entertained on his tumultous road to the Oscars.*crying internally*

     Though,for the old times’s sake,let me remind you some of the best.

  Now,if you weren’t already impressed with what I’ve just showed you,I’ve got for you some of the best reasons Leonardo Di Caprio made us believe he’s the ideal man.

1.His famous quotes 

   One thing that I truly admire about the actor Leonardo Di Caprio is his authenticity and rawness that he never fails to show through his grand roles.Regardless the genre or the emotional impact that a movie holds,we get to envision Leo being himself in front of a camera.His whole act is pure and his enormous talent is always shining the brightest. So,along with the masterpieces he had given life to,he also managed to create some famous quotes,full of wisdom,that cannot be forgotten or left out from my top 5.

   By the way,this is a completely improvised line.I repeat,improvised.Surpringly enough,it turned out to be in the film and became the fourth greatest line of all times.Pretty damn good for a 23 years old Leo,right?

      And of,course,this is gold.

     Don’t swoon yet.There’s more.

 2.His sense of humor 

20a.gif

 During the opening monologue of the hilarious TV show “Saturday Night Live”, the famous comedian Jonah Hill recreated with Leonardo Di Caprio one of the most memorable scenes from the iconic “Titanic” on Saturday, the 25th of January.

  Jonah Hill was the special guest host on that episode and his monologue contained bad mouthing Di Caprio,who admited that he wasn’t initially the first one on the cast’s list for “The wolf of Wall Street”.As if on cue,Leonardo Di Caprio made his sudden appearance,taking everyone by surprise in order to debunk the lies of his good friend.

  The sketch couldn’t be done without Jonah requesting Leo to “relive” the moment that made our hearts go on(pun intended),saying “Hey Lee, remember when we were on set and I would get really nervous? Can we do the thing we always did every day that made me feel safe?”

   I guess I’m not the only one quite dissapointed we wouldn’t get this chance.Lucky Jonah.

  Oh,and let’s not forget about the famous reaction of Leo at the 2016’s Golden Globes,where his priceless face while looking at Lady Gaga went instantly viral.Although there’s no bad blood between them,we could not but enjoy his hilarious mistake.

3.His big heart 

   As I mentioned briefly at the begginning,Leonardo Di Caprio is known not only for his acting skills,but because he has an incredibly big heart.Throughout his career,he has been an outspoken advocate for environmental issues,establishing his own foundation “Leonardo Di Caprio Foundation” with the main mission of protecting the Earth’s rights and implementing solutions to build a stronger relationship between humanity and the natural world.Di Caprio also made several films to educate the public about environmental issues,including “The 11th Hour”.


In 1998,he donated $35,000 towards the “Leonardo DiCaprio Computer Center” at the Los Feliz branch of the Los Angeles Public Library ,which happens to be the site of his childhood home.

   He led several innovative fundraising events, raising over $60 million for projects the foundation is developing and supporting. Additionally, in an effort to empower his fans to make a difference, DiCaprio uses social media to inform and inspire the public, showing them ways to take action on an array of issues – from protecting sharks in California and Elephants in Africa to supporting the transition of our society to clean, renewable energy.

     Did I mention that for his 41th birthday,Di Caprio celebrated with a charity bash? Kanye West performed,a PR company shot video footages of the entire evening,all with the purpose of raising money for his environmental foundation. Pretty impressive,if you ask me.

    Do I need to say something more? Of course I do.Can we talk about his man bun,please? I mean,look at him.

4. His unmistakeable talent

  Known for his unconventional roles,Leo started out in television before moving on to the cinematographic industry,scoring his first Oscar nomination for “Best supporting actor” at the early age of 19 for the role in “What’s eating Gillbert Grape” in 1993.

   His early credits included guest appearances on such programs as “The New Lassie” and “Roseanne”. He also landed a role on the dramatic comedy “Parenthood”.

  In 1997,he starred in James Cameron’s drama,”Titanic”,which was the breaking point that showed his potential as a future star.The 90th also turned Leonardo Di Caprio to a major teenage heartthrob. Thanks God.

  With 78 wins and 192 nominations at the moment,Leonardo Di Caprio’s carreer has contributed to some of the best performances of the last two decades and it’s still going strong.

5.Photoshoots

Last but not least,his photoshoots are everything.Although we are accustomed to Leonardo Di Caprio’s physical appearance from today,we couldn’t but be enveloped in nostalgia and sadness when we think about the 90th version of Leo,with that slicked back hair and sexy smirk,doing one of his first photoshoots.Who wants him back,too?

In the studio photos,19 years old Leonardo Di Caprio slays a cozy turtleneck sweater and some oversized pants which matches the misterious look he gives to the camera and smoking a cigarette with his feet.His styling evolution is clear as day,but it doesn’t stop us daydreaming about his early days,when he was able to make us swoon just by giving us this intense gaze.Please,let me bless you with this recently released pics.
