Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become...Everything else is secondary -Steve Jobs #StyledbyOlivia#stayinspired 📷 | @lafilledu12eme_photography
‘The Cost Of A Dream’ is a post I wrote when I started the process of pursuing my dream of a life in France.
I am sharing it again today on the anniversary of an event.....both to remind myself, as well as to share part of my story.
This is to all brave enough to dream...
Dreams are required.....they make us look forward and they bring hope.
I’ve always been a thinker, too busy existing to dream.
All that changed the day I read an article about a woman in her 40s who moved to France for a year, just to experience it.
The possibility of a life different from what I was living at that time had a huge impact on me.
I was 35. A dream was sparked.
A dream will take you on a journey.
It will change you, force an expansion of your views and perspectives.
You may not see it, but one thing is certain, others will.
It will upset the norm and some won’t be comfortable with your growth@and the change. You very well may lose people close to you along the way.
Believe that those meant to be in your life will adjust and be supportive, even if it takes time.
Keep moving forward...and remember...this journey is yours.
It is preparing YOU for when YOUR dream becomes a reality. #fleaingfrance image via pinterest .
A few days back I learned about this special and almost secret to everybody pond in the middle of a mountain surrounded by a rain forest, where the water was suppose to be so prestine and clear that you could take a picture under water and it would look like it was taken out of it, on the surface.
I saw some photos of it and it looked so beautiful that I decided to go there even though it is a place really hard to reach.
So two days later and not being physcically prepared I set foot into was going to be a great adventure.
On my way up there I pass through some amazing and picturesque towns and met really weird people.
I then also met my guide, Jose. He was a very goodwill person and really adventureous looking guy.
We arrived to La Cienega, a small town just outside the rain forest, and where I would get another ride into the forest. From that stop I could see the big and ominous mountain waiting for me.
Thirty minutes later we were ready to go. We drove through water and mud, through steep paths filled with sharp rocks, until we got to a big clear followed by a small path - only big enough for two people - that would led us to the pond.
That's it for now. I gotta go but I will continue my story on the next post..
São os dias de luta que me fazem ter a certeza de quem sou e de qual a minha missão aqui, são esses dias que me induzem a aceitar e respirar, mesmo sem entender e principalmente, me fazem sentir que ainda tenho um bom coração. Tudo tem seu tempo, tudo tem a sua razão de ser e apesar de doer, vai passar #justtired#livingabroad#decisions#myworld#diasdeluta#holiday
