I still remember long before I was convinced of it myself, I had already been declared a blogger. I was already told at the time that I would create a blog, and if it wasn’t proclaimed yet, then I was asked if it wasn’t at least part of my plans. I surely felt flattered, but above all, I told myself that I didn’t want to do it just for the sake of doing it or to please people, but because I felt that I MUST do it.
And when the right moment came, believe me, the vision and the plan followed. I still remember the time I had to stay up all night, a sleepless night during which I wrote the whole vision and my blog’s mock-up. Afterwards, realizing that it couldn’t have just been my imagination, I prayed for this project and I especially remember asking God to place the right people all around me. And that’s when the adventure began, from the conception of the blog to its launching, until the present moment, a year later. (By the way, I realize that He has answered my prayers beyond my expectations, and to this day I am grateful for every single person who has been involved in this project and who has brought his or her contribution to it).
Why am I telling you all this? Because the belief that I have to do what I am doing, and having a clear vision of what I need to accomplish is my why. Why did I start a blog? Why am I sharing this article? Why am I investing my time and money in it? Why am I taking pictures? Why am I sharing my lifestyle? Why am I sharing playlists ? Why? Why? Why? Behind each one of my actions, my posts, my projects are hidden answers to every “why” you might ask me.
Knowing my major “WHY” and all my minor “whys” is what allows me to move forward, what allows me to keep dreaming, what allows me to persevere and not stop when facing all that awaits me despite all the changes, detours, falls, and other obstacles that could have already stopped me.
“Know your why” is really a message that I will carry with me for life, and with which I will never stop encouraging people. And I pray that you who read me, may not only know it and especially remember it in your daily life, in each of your actions, but that it may also be useful to you in every thing you would like to achieve. There is in this why, an extraordinary strength that allows us to move forward, to set goals and reach them, to keep on dreaming; an extreme strength that allows us to hold on no matter the adversity and difficulties we may encounter; there is behind this why, the accomplishment of a plan, a life tailor-made for us.
Why do you do what you do? Why does it matter? Why is this goal important to you? Why? Ask yourself all these questions!
And on that note, happy first anniversary to my blog, the adventure goes on and I’m sure that the best is yet to come. Thank you to all of you who read me, who believe in me and who encourage me every day. May God bless you and accompany you in everything you undertake,
Lots of love,
