"I'm not the same soul I once was. A lot has changed. A lot had to change. So you shouldn't expect out of me what I embodied in the past- For that part of me no longer exists."
We all grow up, and as we change physically we also change mentally as well as in other aspects of our life. Embracing that change is what is going to allow us to end chapters of our lives as we start new ones. In this hetic life we are living nowadays, where time goes so fast and we are caught in the middle of this 'social-media' adicted world, it is good to stop for a moment and give time to allow ourselves to realize the changes that have been going on within ourselves. The big changes are the ones we notice the most, the ones we look up for the most but the small changes are also there, and they also help to build the person we are.
This year marks the beginning of my twenties, a decade full of oportunities, risk and new things to try, so having this two things in mind I took some time for myself to reflect on those little things that have changed within myself in the last five years. This small things that may not matter really much in the big picture of my life but which definitelly define who I was then and who I am now. How there are things in which I have changed as I grew up and things that have remained the same.
I highly recommend you do the same I did, since it's a good way to get to know yourself and the change you had, a bit more. Whether you share it with the world or not, do it! And if you share it, let me know so I can read it too.
So this week I've been nominated for Liebster Award by my dear frien Aiza from the blog latourdeforce.com. So before I go ahead to answer the questions here are the bloggers I nominate. I look forward to reading the answers of the question I'm going to ask you.
But for now, here are the questions I've been asked.
I have two, and both of them are books I carry with myself since I was a kid, that have inspired me, that have made my love for traveling, my desire for adventures and my love for history grow. Stories that teached me lesons like the power of the family, the big love that sisters share, the amount of imagination we have within ourselves. Books that I will read to my future kids, in sha Allah. They are: La Rosa del Kilimanjaro (The Kilimanjaro's rose), an spanish book by Carlos Puerto, and Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott.
I have, especially when I had lack of inspiration or when I didn't remember the purpose of why I blog. At that times, I like to take some time for me and think about the things that are going on my life at that moment that tends to help me remember why I blog. And about the lack of inspiration, it's not something I can control, it comes and go.
Yes and No. If I'm with people that I already know then I'm more open and less shy, if I'm in a group of people that I haven't meet that well yet then it takes me more time to be myself.
When after two years of working and studying really hard I received the email telling me that I had been accepted to study Architecture in the university of my city, Zaragoza. Something I have wanted for so long.
When I made my first tuna pie with vegetables all by myself and it turned out to taste great.
I would say through arts and words. I write for myself to get my feelings out of myself, and the stories I've written to the public always have part of the feeling I'm having at that moment. Through art, being it the projects I develop for university or the way I dress, allow me to tell the world who I am or who I want to be.
So many that I'm not going to count them, but this are the ones I'm loving right now ( blog.oftreesandhues.com , www.cocorrina.com , www.helloneverland.com , www.mydubio.com , nicolefranzen.blogspot.com.es , emberandmarch.com , dearsarina.blogspot.com.es )
I have always struggled with the 'theme' of my blog, in defining what I post in one word. Did I want it to be a fashion blog? A personal style blog? A writting blog? I kept thinking and said to myself that I couldn't stick to only one topic when in fact I'm passionate about many things, that's when I decided that my blog was more of the 'life style blog' tip, where I talk about not what I do daily but what inspires me, things I love and may be loved but others, things that touch me, places I visit, outfits I wear. I wanted to create my place in this big virtual world. From there came the name of: 'Here Place at the Universe'
Who? I would say God, even if I don't remeber Him as much as I should. But if this quesion was human-oriented then my family, especially my two younger sisters since I feel I'm responsible for their well-being, feelings of a older sister I guess.
To keep going even when you feel you can't do more, to give your best in order to have the best. Going for your dreams even if no one believes you can, prove them wrong or prove them right, even if you fail you wont regret the journey for all the things you learnt from it, but you will regret not trying.
And finally, here are the questions for my nominees.
- What were your expectations before geting into the blogging comunity?
- Has blogging changed you in any way?
- What are you passionate about?
- What do you think about overcoming fears?
- What do you think about expressing yourself through fashion?
- In less than five words, what defines you?
- Summer or Winter?
- What is your dream travel destination?
- Name one thing you want to do before you die.
- Could you live without internet conexion for a week?
- Name an experience you had and would like to repeat once again.
If I haven't nominated you but you are still reading this post, go ahead and answer any of the questions above, or all of them, in the comment section, I really want to see what you all have to say about them!
"I know she imagines her future and makes me part of it.
I know that she imagines the trips we’ll take together , and she imagines growing old by my side as if we were made for each other for eternity, as if no one else existed . maybe she never thought that we may be hurting others she is convinced that our love justifies everything. or maybe she’s more noble than I am, for she wants to accept her final conclusion that she loves me?
and I love her too and I try to diminish my unease, diminish my urge to run from her visions, I want to be with her, if even for a day, for a part of time at least.
that’s how we loved with all of our power & emotions , beyond the boundaries of comfort , beyond loneliness, beyond love, beyond yearning ,and beyond despair."
