Reflections of a Creative Mind
After our beautiful memories and happiness that our first DIY Floral Workshop brought to the table, I’ve been talking to my mom these days a lot, so that she could remind me how important is to be humble and work hard to achieve success in what you love doing. And as every story, travel and experience in our lives have their ups-n-downs and their positive and negative points…in any experience we go through in our lives, we learn something new. However, there is something that never changes if you keep being humble and a good person; you will always be remembered among every single person that have met you in their lives. Here are my mom words, a mom who suffers because her daughter is 7,157km (4,447miles) far from home:
You fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you live, you learn. You’re human, not perfect. You’ve been hurt, but you’re alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also lots of beauty. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just around the bend. And the most important thing, be remembered…not noticed. For that, keep being YOU and trusting in YOU, that’s the whole secret in live.
When I heard these amazing words from my mom, really made me think why I am the person I am nowadays, why I have the job and the life that I have, the person that is next to me to be able to comply with my personal journey as well as why people they admire and love me. And the whole conversation and reflection relies on my values, those that I have learnt from my parents and my love, Gabe as well as on my own, due to the travel that I have experienced in 28 years of my life. Those values, are mine and no one can’t take them out from me, even people that feel jealous and want to hurt me. I need to write this, because I feel that the success of this last event, has relied on this. On the way I am, how I like interacting and meeting people all over the world and taking the best from them to enrich my life and my persona. I love taking care of people and make them feel special as well as bringing creative and unique experiences to their lives. This has brought so much happiness and creativity to each others lives that I would keep going and going and going…as the best thing in life is DO WHAT YOU LOVE.
It is ENDLESS the appreciation and esteem that I have felt from everybody coming to our event and for trusting in my little creative company and writing about us. As well as all the beautiful pictures and moments captured during the event. That’s why I like doing what I love, because it’s the way to reflect myself as well as give the best of me to the people who are part of my life. No one can take that from me, and if they try, it would be an exhausting trip, because the strength, the passion and the effort that I put in everything I do in this life… is infinite. I got to the point where I trust in my capacity and I feel good with the person I am and the people that are in my life. Each of them they have brought and will keep bringing the best of me.
There is not a better feeling than knowing that what you are doing in this life, every step you take, is driving you to your personal summit. And I encourage yourselves, those who are reading me, to go for it and to keep trusting in your values and the person you are, just because it’s the most powerful tool you are going to need in this life.
Keep moving, there are stones in your way, but you are strong and brave enough to jump and avoid them, so that they can’t hit you and you can make it to your summit. Adriana
In honor to every person who trust in me and that have decided to respect me the way I am. A huge hug to all of them.
