What If?

'What' and 'if' are two words as nonthreatening as words can be. But put them together, side by side, and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life.

What if?

What if?

What if?

   I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like, a love to leave loved ones for, a love to cross oceans for, but I’d like to believe, if ever I were to feel it, that I’d have the courage to seize it.
 You know what i have been thinking a lot about lately? This is actually a thought that my friend had the other day so let's give her some credit for that one. God granted us one life. We don't know what will happen in the future. We lie to ourselves each day by creating plans for 'tomorrow', when the truth is you never know what might actually happen. It might also never even arrive. That's why it is so important to live in the moment and not to waste time. you know what? I love life. with it's ups and downs. it wouldn't be interesting without difficulties. Without them we wouldn't cherish the good things, we wouldn't value, and be grateful for what we have.
  Although, Let's get back to the main idea. god gave you only one life and one chance to accomplish what you want to accomplish. It's sad that we are still not fully able to do whatever we want. For some reason we are afraid, all of us. afraid of consequences. and here we are, living in fear. thinking without taking risks we would be happier and safer, however without those risks we will never feel fully happy. We only regret the chances we didn't take. you know how they say,you'll never know unless you actually try and put an effort in something. unfortunately we prefer playing it safe. if there's something that made you feel happy, even if it didn't end the way you intended, you shouldn't regret it. Life is a gift. Wake up every day and realize that.

A Letter To my Future Self

 


  Hello there future self, you weren't expecting to receive a letter from me, did you? or you did, considering we're the same person. I am writing to you without any particular reason. I know You won't answer any of the questions, I just thought It would be something entertaining for you to read. I'm 16 years old now. It seems like a lot to me but you probably smiled right now as you think I'm still such a child. Hey Do you remember me at all? Have you changed?  I hope you did. I bet you are a lot more confident than I am right now. Did you learn how to drive? I always wanted to drive a car. I think you are not that keen on blogging any more, are you?

   How Old are you anyway? 25? 38?
Yes, I know I shouldn't know too much about the future - kind of eliminates the fun of not knowing - but I'm going to ask some stuff anyway.

 You are the girl I see in the mirror every day. But why does it feel like I'm writing a stranger? Oh, I'm interested do you like pumpkin, or you still absolutely hate it.
 
    Are you in love? Have I met him? And Did you work things out with you-know-who in the end? I really hope so. yeah, I'm still stuck on that. Some people aren't worth our time but unfortunately we won't find that out until we spend it on them. Hopefully we don't waste too many more hours on people who don't warrant it. are you still unsure of whether you love a person or these feelings are just sympathy that will fade away really soon. For some reason I always had that logic in my mind that you can't actually fall in love until certain age, until you're mature enough or else it's just hormones that attract you to that person, (oh how much I hate that term). Well, partly true but on the other hand with age you become more down to earth and materialistic and that feeling of love starts to include many aspects that have nothing to do with it. I've realized how stupid the phrase 'life is short' is. because just think for a second is it possible to do something that is longer than your life?
   I sincerely hope that nothing I do these next two years will ever be something that you regret. I'm still trying to find myself and I hope you've found who you really are. i wonder if you still listen to the same kind of music as I do. And How's our mom doing?
     One of the biggest fears you've had is making new friends or talking to anyone other than those you've known for 3 years. Hopefully by this year you would have overcome it or are slowly starting to. Your Horoscope still says the same though, and it perfectly describes me.It says you adapt emotionally to your environment. Often painfully shy, are adept at imitating the mannerisms of other people in order to hide your own personality.  can too easily become a victim by identifying with the personality and problems of other people, because this severely restricts the development of your personality and talent.
  Imagine that you have gotten on an old-fashioned, romantic train with a specific destination in mind. As you choose a cozy seat and you settle in, the train begins to move. As it goes faster and faster the scenery changes to become more beautiful and more inviting by the moment, and along the way you see things that cause you to want something other than what you originally intended. That's okay. The point of a journey is to get to the right place, yet sometimes we don't recognize the right place until we see it.
                                          
Here, I composed a list of stuff i want you to do. p.s I know some of them are super unrealistic but it's just the first thing that came to my head.
Go to University
Try Diving 
Jump with a Parachute 
Learn How to Drive a Car
Go Abroad with A friend
Never lose my current friends 
Visit Disney Land
Travel to Rio During Samba Festival
Go To Coachella

         Most of the time,you operate on intuition. You use that keen insight of yours to ascertain many things - a person's character, the viability of an opportunity, whether to accept an invitation or not, and so on.
 However sometimes you get so caught up in listening to that first wisp of intuition that you fail to recognize, you occasionally have limits. For example when something means a lot to you personally in an overwhelming kind of way, you sometimes can't rely on intuition alone. Listen to the little voice, but back up what you hear with research. I hope those advices from my daily horoscope will help you figure it out, or at least make you think. I hope you appreciate this, future self. It's hard enough writing to the future; I can't really say 'It'll all work out' Cause I Don't know if it will.

 Well, I have faith in you and I look forward to being you in time! I'm greatly anticipating it so don't let me down!

Things I've learned

 



   Hey, Sorry I haven't been posting for a long time. there was just too much stuff happening in my head and I only like posting valuable stuff that I will be proud of later. For some reason I didn't feel free to post on this blog lately. It's like something kept me from being honest and expressing myself here. You guys know me for more than 2 years now and I know some of you read this blog from the very beginning and know me pretty well. so the topic of this post is going to be me. My personality and how It's developed. So if you are with me for long enough then you probably know how shy and insecure i always used to be. well this year has been life changing for me. I won't go into details simply because I don't feel like telling you the whole story but Let's just jump to the conclusion. I'm proud of myself - and that's a weirdly rare feeling for me. Naturally the question is born: What am I so proud of in particular. Something I've achieved ? Nope It's kind of an overall feeling that i have. I'm simply proud of the person I'm becoming. I finally know what I want. And of course i Don't always get what i want and things don't always go my way but I always used to be that kid that didn't know anything and was scared of important decisions. well, here's an achievement.
    Then I finally realized what a great sense there is in the phrase 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger'  Remember, everything comes with time and through experience, you will never learn from someone else's mistakes until you make them on your own. even though it will be painful and you'll feel horrible it will make you stronger in the end. I don't have enough words to express myself right now. All I'm trying to say is, be open to new opportunities say 'yes' to things that you always felt unsure of doing. go out of your comfort zone and try something else aren't you tired of this gray pattern of life over and over again? I know I was. Yes - it was scary but I don;'t regret anything because even if it went terrible I know at least I tried. Have you noticed, that you regret things you didn't do more than things you in fact did do? That's right. I only regret i couldn't express my attitude, opinion and feelings in certain situations. You know there is a really useful thing someone told me: When you are unsure of whether you want to do this or not - just think, would you say a prayer before doing it? if yes - then go for it.
   Also, I found this really great quote on tumblr, it said
 'The boy you're in love with at 16 probably won't matter when you're 25.
The Math Test you failed your freshman year of high school probably won't matter when you're graduating college.
The problems you're facing today may seem like the world's end , but they will not matter in a year. '

I think That's true. Overthinking can cause more trouble than those little problems deserve. And when you feel like everything is ruined and your life is over just think about what other people in the world may be going through and value what you have. That's another reason I'm proud of myself. I'm thankful for what I have and I know things won't always go well but remember if it's not happy, It's not the end. anyways, maybe god is preparing something special for you, so just wait. actually no. Don't just wait, fight hard to reach your goal. Fight for what you love , but not for who you love because I don't get why you would fight  for someone who doesn't care about you. fighting for love - is only acceptable when two people are fighting. It shouldn't ever be just you, it makes everything pointless. That's what I've learned. 'No reason to stay is a good reason to go ' so if you find yourself fighting alone just stop, take a step back and think about it, Can you make someone love you? If your answer is 'No'. Then just move on. as I said before, there's something better waiting for you in the future, maybe you should give a chance to someone to fight for you now? and if someone broke your heart, believe me if they did it once they will do it again. Never run back to whatever broke you 'Better alone than badly accompanied' .
  'sometimes your circle decreases in size, but increases in value' It's better to have a few friends that actually love you for who you are and are not trying to change you, than have the complete opposite.
 Another thing is something I'm not good at myself but I'm trying to get there I promise. Don't make your entire life revolve around that one person completely, your life is about crating 'you', work on yourself instead. Don't look good to impress someone or to fit in that section of association 'pretty' . Just Do whatever feels right to you.
      I think this post is too long already, so I'm going to end here, although I have a lot more to talk about. I'm really interested if you like these kind of posts, Let me know in the comment section below. Honestly writing this all down felt like such a relief. Thank you all who read and good luck

Dancing | Dance Competition makeup (Video)

 

<3


 This is the subject that I feel really passionate about. I've been doing this for 9 years now and If you want to know more about What it really means to me and what I have been doing throughout these 9 years you should check out my old post Dance.
 As you know I've performed on Dancing with The Stars and never posted a video that a lot of you were asking about And finally Here is the link to the video of the performance itself.
  In this post I wanted to talk about what Dancers do to prepare for a competition. This is basically my tips. Why am I doing this post? Just because a lot of my friends who are new to all of this asked me lots of questions about how i do my makeup, what products I use on my face and body.
 The first mistake that I myself am very guilty of making is being 'too white'. Basically in Latin-American Dances you have to be tanned or else you are going to look like a total fool. you can use self tanners but they stay for a long time and it is not very comfortable if you have school the next day. So What I do is, I use bronzer. It sounds weird at first, how can you use bronzer on your entire body. Well you rub it in your skin with a sponge and set it with a hairspray.
  Don't forget that your face has to match your body so make sure to use a darker foundation. for the bronzer I prefer golden rose and here's eye makeup that i usually do.

Dreams




 I had a presentation in English Class - About Dreams. So I found this information very interesting and wanted to share it with all of you. 

 Dream is a word used to describe the subconscious experience of a sequence of images, sounds, ideas, emotions, or other sensations usually during sleep There is no neurologically agreed upon, biological definition for dreaming

Every person on earth dreams pretty much every night, and evidence suggests that all mammals dream also. It follows then that something extremely important must be going on while we sleep and dream, yet in the industrialized world, the majority of people pay little attention to dreams, lucid dreams and dream interpretation, and sometimes even shortchange themselves on sleep because it is perceived as lost time, or at best unproductive.

         But there is a lot that is unknown about dreams and the purpose of dreams is interpreted in many different ways

   What is the purpose of dreams? Do we need to dream? Are dreams an interaction between your subconscious and conscious?  
¨        Lucid dreaming occurs when dreamers realize that they are dreaming
¨ 



The dreamers are sometimes capable of changing their dream environment and controlling various aspects of their dream. 
¨The dream environment is often much more 
realistic in a lucid dream, and the senses
 heightened
¨

           The realization is usually triggered by the dreamer noticing some impossible or unlikely occurrence in the dream

        ¨Two types of lucid dreaming: dream-initiated lucid dreaming and wake-initiated lucid dreaming
         ¨Dream-initiated lucid dreaming: Starts off as a normal dream until the dreamer realizes that they’re dreaming
        ¨Wake-initiated lucid dreaming: The dreamer goes from a normal waking state directly into a dream state with no apparent lapse in consciousness
          ¨Time passage appears to be the same during lucid dreaming as when awake
