Post-Thursday Inspiration #14

I haven’t been posting a lot lately because I’ve been either crazy busy or crazy lazy the days I have nothing to do. Today I found some awesome inspiring pictures in Pinterest when I should actually be doing some homework or photography. But really if I have to see another must-send application form from universities and scholarships I’ll go crazy.

So here is a little inspiration in this not-so-special Friday to fill our heads and dreams!

Be the change you want to see in the world

I found this video a few minutes ago, its so inspirational, it makes you think about what you are doing in your life and why are you doing this stuffs.

If you are doing what you like, be happy, you can congratulate yourself for it. If you still are in the path that your heart doesn’t follow, stop for a moment, watch this video and reflect on it. I know I did.

A letter to me, to the 22 year old girl I’ll be at the end of 2013, next new year’s eve.

Dear me,

I hope this year you have accomplished everything you wanted to do. I hope you are in the position you want to be in your life. You graduated, that’s great! You left, off to the adventure of your life, to travel. You actually went to another country, that’s nice. I hope you had fun and enjoyed every part of that adventure.

Oh you got a tattoo!! That’s awesome, did your family screamed at you? I bet your grandma almost killed you. But it was worth it right?

Then you went off to get your masters degree, I knew you wanted to keep on studying. Wow you accomplished so much over the year.

But let me ask you the most important question, are you happy? Of course, everybody have their ups and downs during the whole year but.. overall.. are you content with your life right now? Did you get to do all the things you wanted to do this 2013? and if you did, how did you feel? awesome?, half awesome? some things were disappointing?

Well life is not perfect, right? At least you had a good year. Full of new experiences, new people, new everything. I hope you already have your plans for 2014. In fact, I know you have been thinking about them all year long.

A piece of advice, from friend to friend?. Life is about the experiences, the new things, the challenges; not only about whether you are happy or not, because like I said before, nothing’s perfect. If you had lived then that’s more than enough to say that you have learnt something, other than just placing a checkmark on some stuffs. LIVE. That’s the important.

Keep on the good work honey, you are doing great. Don’t let anyone tell you the opposite. Always do you, no matter what.

Sincerely, myself.

Stop for ONE minute

This is one of my favourite videos ever in youtube.

It just takes one minute to feel inspired, one minute to feel a little alive, one minute to leave everything behind and start a new live. A lot can happen in one minute.. or nothing, its your decision.

That moment, that feeling, that beauty.

If the majority of the people in the world would travel

there’d be more understanding

more relationships

more connection to the environment,

because as you travel from A to B

you realize that we are all connected

that if you cut a tree here or there

it can be felt on the other side.

If the majority of the people in the world would travel

everyone would get along

because we would understand

that every person is unique

but not because you live here or there

you are better or less than anyone,

we are all the same.

The world can always surprise you,

but only if you allow it to

 because no matter how much you travel

you can always feel connected with someone

no matter the language, race, eye colour or religion;

and in that moment.. that exact moment

your own world changes,

everything changes

because you never thought

that you could connect with someone

so much

so far away from home

away from everything you know.

That’s the beauty of travelling..

the connections, the moments that make you feel,

that point when you want to hug our surroundings

but the feeling and the place is so overwhelming and big

that you start crying.

That’s the beauty.

Have you ever been to any of these places and felt that feeling?.. connected with someone? got mesmerized? Share your beautiful story..

For me it was when I saw the Big Ben for the first time. I’ve fantasized so much with this place. I remember that I was stepping out of the underground station that’s right in front of the Big Ben, and the moment I put my head up, I wasn’t expecting to see that, in that moment, so I got starstruck  by it. I literally couldn’t move for a few seconds and my eyes began to get all watery.. I had that feeling, that connection, that moment of wanted to hug the whole city of London, that overwhelming feeling.. Happiest moment ever..
