I haven't spelt in the last twenty-four hours. I took the most important decision of my life: to travel for my dream. This time, though, I am doing it alone.
I left the man who loves me more than anybody else, and my crazy but adorable cat Fifo, back in Moscow
I am afraid, I won't lie. I will be facing a significant lifestyle change, again.
I have countless reasons to be afraid, and yet, within me resides a helpful little voice repeating - Move! Move! You must move!
The voice continues to tell me that there is something big waiting for me, but to win it, I must cross the ocean. It's a test. Perhaps temporary.
Some days I wonder if I am crazy. My answer varies according to the weather, yes! Then I think, wasn't Christopher Columbus crazy when he took his first voyage that evening of 1492, intending to discover new lands.
Some days I wish I could live in a world inhabited by crazy people like Columbus, or like me. People who despite fear, continue the journey, trusting their heart. Because deep down, we know it has the answer to our existential questions. It's faith.
I've always known that I want to inspire others. I didn't let anyone force me into wearing masks. I wanted to be myself: rebellious, honest, and real.
My concept of inspiring implied sharing beauty, as beauty brings positive emotions. I was wrong! It's not enough to show beauty.
We all need to relate to other people's problems, to feel understood or less lonely, in order to learn to address our own problems and to finally take action.
After all, our problems are ours to solve, they are part of our personal story. This is when the beauty comes. We appreciate beauty, peace and light because we know the opposite.
“Every problem is a gift - without problems we would not grow.”
― Anthony Robbins”
I am starting a new life, seeking a deeper connection with myself, the peace I haven't yet found. I am not pretending to reach Nirvana; I want to feel a stronger faith, the one that doesn't leave space for much doubt. Is it possible? In a way, it sounds like a paradox, because I believe doubts sustain faith.
People who love me, my family, they will still be there for me, and I will also be there for them, but with my freedom. They allow me to follow my own path. This is love.
I've committed to inspiring others through the examples of my struggles and solutions, faith and self-esteem. Showing you that it's possible to become a better person regardless of your circumstances. We choose who we want to be and how we want to see the world that surrounds us. What happened to us yesterday doesn't equal who we are today.
We can be happy today, in fact, we must cultivate happiness every minute. Life is today. We are our own creators. Let's change anything that steals our peace. Let's take decisions that will contribute to our well-being.
Here is my new challenge: I am starting it in Costa Rica, with the help of the sun, which I missed so much during my days in cold Moscow.
I challenge myself to be a better person and I invite you to try as well.
How are you challenging yourself today?

Tons of love,
Traveling for a dream
