Writing 101 – Day Twenty


It’s the final day of Writing 101!

I’ve enjoyed every minute of it, learned a lot, read even more:) and connected with some amazing people!

Today’s assignment: ‘The things we treasure’ – It’s the final day of the challenge already?! Let’s make sure we end it with a bang — or, in our case, with some furious collective tapping on our keyboards. For this final assignment, lead us through the history of an object that bears a special meaning to you.

‘Hidden treasures under our feet’

Thinking about things I treasure…

Throughout our life we collect things, moments…with time they become memories, we hold on to them and turn them into treasures.

I can’t count all the objects I’ve kept and locked in the memory box…each and every piece has a sentimental value and it’s a proof of wonderful moments that I was lucky enough to be part of.

…but if I look closer, it’s not the things I treasure… it’s the memories that come with them! So, today…the last assignment for this writing challenge I will open my memory box and share with you my most-prized possession:)

“…the sun never felt so warm…it was 7 o’clock in the morning and all I could think of was him. I know we always said that today will be like any other day…we didn’t need to prove anything…we knew each others souls, we knew we belonged, but even so, today was the day we will pledge our love in front of God, our family, our amazing friends and somehow everything will become more real.

I don’t know why I’ve said that…it was real before, but it was missing something…our hearts were longing for something…the blessing.

Now, thinking back, everything it’s a blur…I have all these pictures to remind me of that day and I treasure them dearly but my soul values the vows we took…those unforgettable moments when everyone and everything is in perfect line with the Universe and the land and the sky celebrates the union of two spirits.

My heart was racing, I’ve spent the morning crying and I wondered why people say that this is the most amazing day of your life…surely I am not the only bride who feels this way on her big day?! I wasn’t crying because something was wrong…I felt flooded with all these emotions and they all came at once…happiness, love, hope, peace, relief, fear. 

…walking down the ail…it’s like being in a boat, in the middle of the sea, desperately looking for land…

…but then, I saw him and my heart was filled with love, endless love…he was my light house, guiding me towards the rest of our life…”

Final note from the author:)

I was, I am and always will be in love with love…a hopeless romantic, you may say:)

The truth is that I value feelings more than anything, emotional experiences through which the world uncovers its beauty and leads us towards the unknown…the amazingly beautiful unknown, which awaits to be discovered.

The secret to uncover our destiny it’s simple…don’t walk the path alone, because together we are stronger, better and happier!

Writing 101 – Day Nineteen ‘Thank You’


Thank you to all of you for taking this journey with me:)

Today’s assignment: ‘Don’t stop the rocking’ – Today is a free writing day. Write at least four-hundred words, and once you start typing, don’t stop. No self-editing, no trash-talking, and no second guessing: just go. Bonus points if you tackle an idea you’ve been playing with but think is too silly to post about.

I’ve realised not so long ago that saying out loud “I am a writer”, sounded silly…

I didn’t really understand why…even if for such a long time – the pen and paper was a way to escape – I still never thought of myself as a writer. Perhaps in my mind, a writer is the author of a published book, a person whose name sounds familiar to strangers…I don’t know.

Along the way…these past few weeks taught me that to be a writer you don’t need a title…that inspiration can come from anywhere and anything…that sometimes admitting something to yourself, makes it more real…that a few words of encouragement from others can take you a long way…

So today I am going to take this opportunity to thank all of you, fellow bloggers and writers with whom I took this journey of self discovery…thank you for every second you’ve taken from your own precious time, to read my posts, my attempts of self-improvement :), thank you for all the amazing words you’ve left behind, all the positive criticism and spelling error highlights :)) – because you might not realise this, but I became better thanks to you.

The truth is that no matter what we do in life we need each other…for support, for a kind word or for validation…either way we were built to live and discover the world together.

I know now that the road to success starts from within…

From the moment of self acceptance until the finish line, our journey will be filled with unexpected connections, new discoveries, amazing opportunities, highs and lows…all with one thing in common, we will never be alone!

I am proud to say today that I AM A WRITER and no matter if my art will be one day discovered or not, I feel that I am one step closer to accomplish a dream!

I will continue to paint the town red, bring to life stories that were just images once, support and encourage anyone who needs it and enjoy life as it comes – sweeten the lemon juice with more sugar:)))

Writing 101 – Day Seventeen


I AM A WRITER…

Today’s assignment: ‘Your Personality on the Page’ – Today’s Prompt: We all have anxieties, worries, and fears. What are you scared of? Address one of your worst fears. Today’s Twist: Write this post in a style distinct from your own.

‘Between rocks and the fence…afraid of being happy’

They say after darkness comes the light…but what about the darkness that follows the light?

I’ve always been an optimistic but I think it’s easier to encourage the person next to you than yourself!

The beauty of life it’s that, it wasn’t made to be easy…all the rocks and the fences we have to overcome to follow our dreams, makes it all that much sweeter when we get there:)

and all it’s good to concentrate on the challenges we face…working harder to achieve our goals, because this way we feel worthier of the prize, we think we deserve it because we put our heart and soul on the line to get it.

But what happens when you’ve got it?

…when life finally smiled back at you, embraced you for a split of a second and brought you to the one place you fought to be?

It feels strange…it scares you, because now you think that there is a possibility of losing what you’ve worked so hard to accomplish.

We are taught that life it’s about sacrifice, it’s about compromise…that life it’s full of pain but always followed by endless joy…but is it endless?

We are so used to being in a constant battle, that sometimes we forget how we should be when it’s peace…when our dreams come true and we can put the sword down and be happy.

Do we know how to be happy…or are we afraid that the moment we allow ourselves to feel happiness, it can all be taken away from us?

Honestly, I don’t know…

Sometimes I think I am afraid to let myself be happy…I smile but I still hold the sword in one hand…ready for any battle I might have to face…

I believe we enjoy the obstacles…we feel alive when we constantly have to conquer and as we bury ourselves in endless crusades, we believe that life should be that way…but it’s not!

Allow yourself to be happy, celebrate your victory and look at the clear blue sky without wondering where the clouds are:)…I know I will try…

Note from the author:

Live your life without constantly wondering what will be your next step…don’t be afraid to smile if you’re happy…don’t think about the rain when you feel the warmth of the sunshine and forget about the dark when it’s light!
