It is Never Too Late To Dream a New Dream

Today I was not going to write any post cause I was already tired and it is way too hot (around 110 F in Rio) to do anything else other than have an ice cream. But then I came across this quote and here I am.

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

To have a dream is something that speaks deeply to me. And it does because some loooong time ago I lost touch with my own dreams. Don’t know where they went. One day they simply evaporated and for a while I didn’t even notice it. And ladies, how dull can be a life without dreams… right?

Anyways, once the dream ball dropped and I realized I had no dreams to pursue I tried to access my database to check my dreams as a kid or as a teenager because back then, obviously, I had dreams and maybe I could use them, who knows? That is why I went back to Fashion School (at F.I.T. in New York City) to take a few Styling classes. See, when I was a teenager I wanted to be the new Anna Wintour or an editorial stylist or work in a magazine. Although most of the time it was fun to attend the classes, deep inside I knew those were not my dreams anymore. I don’t regret taking those classes at all, cause it took me to New York and there I finally reengaged in life, found new passions like Reiki and Kundalini Yoga among other things. Totally worth it. And by that time was when I realized that maybe I need to go after a new dream.

Great! But here is a catch: I still don’t know what my dream is. And maybe I don’t because I haven’t found my bliss. Or maybe I have but till now I still feel as if I am not good enough to pursue it. Because every time I think about going for it, I procrastinate. Or I hyperventilate.

Anyways, trying to reconnect with my dreams, having this purpose and being opened to it, is what put me back on my own track. Cause, honestly, life without a dream is way too flat, it is not living, it is only surviving. When you loose something that important as I did, it is impossible not to realize how vital this is. Don’t wait till you loose yours to appreciate and cherish it.

But if you do, be aware that you can always dream a new dream. At any age. It is up to you to reconnect with your own self and find that out. It may take a while but the pursuing trip per se can end up lighting up your life.

Nothing Like A Day After Another

That simple. And so true…

Yesterday I was feeling horrible. I had not slept at all the night before, I was deeply sad and concerned with some family issues and feeling hopeless to reach a happy ending ever that not even a happy message from my beloved boyandfriend could push me up. I was down. And every time that happens I allow myself to feel it and let it be. I just hang in there, support myself and my feelings and try to understand and embrace it the best way I can. I never run away or try to shift the feeling. I let it go on its own, on its own timing. And it does. Eventually. Until then it can be extremely painful.

I went to bed early because I was exhausted and the feeling was still there, consuming me, making my heart hurts as usual. I slept the whole night. It was a good restoring sleep. I woke up renovated, in a completely different vibe. I went for my morning walking listening to some Kundalini mantras and voilĂ , the magic of nothing like a day after another just happened.

Obviously I know that the storm is far from reach its ending. Another bad days will come, but just for today I will enjoy and appreciate these new, positive, hopeful vibe, this moment. Because life is about moments. They come and go and we should let them come and go. Embrace, enjoy, allow ourselves to feel it, learn from it and let them go. Because they do go. That is why it is never a good idea to make a decision when the vibe is down. Let the vibe goes up to do so.
