I know I am a little late with this post but I really wanted to share it with you, so better late than never, right?
Almost two months ago, during my stay in Trieste, my blog The Soul of a Poet had its first birthday.
The happiness and the incomparable gratitude that my soul feels because of that is something I can’t even begin to put into words.
In this first year I have had so many beautiful things happen to me, I have met many lovely people, had so many fantastic collaborations,…and all that thanks to my blog, which I chose to approach with love and with the aim to have my words be an inspiration for some of you.
Believe me when I tell you that sometimes all of it seems like I’m dreaming. Somebody pinch me. 😀
However, was it easy? Absolutely not.
It still isn’t.
But I don’t think it should be easy anyway.
I love what I’m doing and I always put so much love into it, so I accept the fact that this path that I am on is a part of my personal and professional growth.
I am aware that I am not perfect, but to be honest my soul doesn’t seek perfection anyway. I am here to have new experiences in a unique way, in Zana’s way.
I am aware that mistakes aren’t bad at all, that you shouldn’t be scared of them, because they are here to teach me so many things. They are here to remind me of who I am, what I am and which way my soul should and wants to go.
When I decided to have a blog last year, many people asked me why and what for. Some of them even made fun of my decision in a not so pleasant way.
They would often say to me: “Oh right, that’s a fashionable profession nowadays – you don’t have to do anything, only take photos, write some stuff and that’s it, right?” Also, eventually they would conclude that today every other person is a blogger.
But I wonder: So? What’s the problem with that?
Can anybody know what is hiding behind an individual? What their deepest dreams and wishes are? I don’t think so.
This blog is a wish I have carried with me for more than eight years.
I didn’t make it earlier because I believe that I wasn’t ready for that step. By that I mean that I didn’t have the confidence that I have today. I didn’t have the security I have today. I didn’t have the determination I have today, nor the courage and knowledge that I have today.
I knew that back then that wouldn’t have been the right decision to make.
I let everything take its natural course, I worked on myself and “waited” for the right moment.
And then last year something just clicked.
I didn’t think about it too much, but instead, the moment the name for my blog popped into my head, I searched online for a web designer who could help me with creating this special corner for my thoughts. So on April 10 my The Soul of a Poet story began.
What is my mission?
Most importantly I want to inspire all of you who decide to visit my blog with my words.
My mission is to encourage you to take action. To remind you from time to time that you shall never stop dreaming. To tell you that dreams do come true.
My mission is that every time you read one of my texts you say: ”She believes, she’s following her dreams – I can do that too.” Because my lovely people, you can do anything.
In my first blog post Dreams can come true I wrote:
“Every journey begins with a small step, an uncontrollable desire and with a heart of child that could conquer the world. It all starts with a single spark and with a passion from deep inside.”
I didn’t quit, so you shouldn’t either!
Lots of love,
