Sometimes we take too much for granted. Life is merely what we think it is an, at the same time it’s exactly what we know it is.
I have kept this blog only as a hobby, as a way for me to decant so many things I think and feel about fashion. Sometimes I don’t pay too much attention to it, and sometimes it turns out to be the only thing I want to do; but always, it´s my space to share with anyone who wants to see and read and/or listen. I write in English mainly because it helps me to write, it makes me concentrate more on what I’m writing I guess, even if my native language is Spanish.
I moved recently to Santiago, Chile. So many things that were not what I wished for myself had been determining my life in Venezuela and it was turning to be very displeasing. These were not only the reasons that have awaken the protests and chaos in my country (which are many, and I agree with the protests, only I’m not a big protester, it’s just not in my blood), but also personal ones that make me search for ‘more’ (whatever that is)… more peace, more freedom (just to be able to walk on the streets and not be afraid of being kidnaped or robbed or even worse, be killed – which actually does happen often in my country – and to not be afraid that if a cop stops me on the street is to rob me or to do some corruption. That is the least freedom I ask for, for now), I search for a glimpse of success in my professional life, I just want a “real life” (if that even exists).
So I moved to Chile and I’m really calm. I have a lot of free time while I wait for my visa and permission to work here legally, and I have been online a lot. I found some pictures that may open your eyes to take more consideration about the others, and also may very well inspire you for fashion’s sake. The colors of these pictures are incredible and the content just make me want to look at them and think of that moment when the picture was taken.
Again, I think sometimes we take everything for granted, or we think life is what’s in front of us, and it is; but sometimes we have to open ourselves to new experiences, search for more, search for a new life if it’s necessary, and most importantly search within ourselves to appreciate what we’ve got. Don’t take life and everything for granted.
Disclaimer: none of these pictures are mine, I took them from the web and just wanted to share their beauty. Mostly took them from these two contests from National Geographic. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
