I’ve thought about how I will answer Fatima’s questions…if you’ve been reading my blog before, you know by now I like to go creative :)))))… and I’ve had a great idea…hope you’ll enjoy reading it!
These are the questions I’ve had to answer:)
1) Why do you blog?
2) What do you blog about?
3) What is your craziest passion?
4) What inspired you into writing?
5) What do you like to read in other blogs?
6) What is your favourite book and how did it change you?
7) What is your favourite quote?
8) What do you love about writing?
9) What are you most likely to think when you look up at the blue sky?
10) How do you define happiness?
For many years I’ve written poetry…I’ve only shared one poem with the world and that is because I’ve had to enter a competition…it was one of my assignments in school. I gave up writing for many years…I really don’t know why, I could find the same excuse as we all do and say ‘I didn’t have time’, but I believe I’ve lost the trust in what I could do if I would start again.
You know that feeling when no matter what you do, something is still missing?
That’s how I’ve felt for many years, until I’ve picked up a pen and a blank piece of paper…and everything made sense again. Blogging it’s my way of connecting and sharing what I love about writing…
So many people think that being a writer means stories, fiction, novels, thick books with hundreds of pages…
I think being a writer is expressing what you love with carefully chosen words…or just simply putting your heart and soul on a white sheet with no regrets…
I blog or better say, write about what I am in love with…fashion, photography, food, movies…and every now and then I let my imagination free and join the world of fiction.
I don’t have many passions, but I have a terrible adoration for the colour red…can’t really explain it…it’s just there, everywhere around me! My eyes have a sudden sparkle when I look at something red…it draws me, talks to me, enchants me in the most mysterious ways:)
If I try to find an explanation behind my love and inspiration for writing…I can’t find one!
I am inspired by everything in my life…sometimes I just look at a photo and I feel how the words travel within my mind and find a place where they all make sense. I’ve always enjoyed writing, it’s just who I am.
Blogging made me more confident in myself and in what I want to express through my words, but at the same time it gave me the amazing opportunity to connect with so many wonderful people who share the same passion for writing as I do. I love paging through blogs with some inspirational and powerful stories…I am in love with photography, so I always try to connect with blogs which are more visually themed. I am happy to been lucky enough to know bloggers who have the same excitement for fashion, food and movies as I do.
When I don’t blog or read different posts from my fellow bloggers, I like to read…My favourite book ever read has to be The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I say that…but I love each and every book he ever wrote…he is my pure inspiration when talking about writing.
I’ve discovered Paulo Coelho a few years after I’ve started writing and I always felt that I’ve shared something more than the love for magic and the unknown…his words seem to be my words…the thoughts he expresses in his books, sometimes are my thoughts…
I’ve always been a huge fan of quotes, I’ve used them in my writing and in my blogging…I think a quote is sometimes a slight peek into what’s coming as you scroll down the page.
One of my favourite quotes and which I truly believe to be true is:
“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” Paulo Coelho
It’s so unbelievable but at the same time so simple…everything around us is connected and even if we do not see the silver string, each and every thing is linked to something else and every action has a reaction…so the world around us is always conspiring in our favour even when we fail to put our trust in it.
Writing is one way of trying to understand the world…and sometimes by discovering the unknown you have a chance to take a better look at yourself and uncover your own mystery. Writing for me is sometimes an escape …not from reality but more an escape into the deep and hidden miracles that make us who we are.
People see different things in different ways…writing is expressing those perspectives and finding a common ground where we connect. Simple things, like looking at the blue sky…some we’ll see a bright day, others will be grateful for the sun and its warmth…when I look up at the blue sky, I see life…endless line of mystery and hope, I see our Universe connected to far more than the Sun and the Moon…
A clear blue sky brings me happiness as a smile of a stranger brings me joy.
Happiness is such an unknown territory because it means so many different things to each of us…
Happiness it’s a feeling that comes from within…it’s a decision we make…we have the power to decide if we want to be happy or we want to find that thing or that someone who can make us happy.
Happiness is so personal and there are times when it takes just a touch to bring it to life…but sometimes I am afraid to let myself be entirely happy, because I don’t want to lose that feeling or the reason behind it…
One thing I can always be sure of…is that I never miss the chance to be happy, I love life as it is and I am grateful for every second I have to feel pure happiness.
…and there it is…a piece of me on paper:)
