I guess one of the biggest challenges we face in life is finding something to believe in when it seems like we have nothing keeping us in check, centred. I'm not a religious person, I don't believe in a higher power in the shape of a man controlling our destinies (although I respect people who have enough will power to believe that); however, I believe in people, in energy, in actions. We're responsible of the things that come out of our mouths, of the things we choose (or choose not) to do; we have influence over others and that is no small duty.

For the time being, I choose to believe in myself and the things I do. I have plans and ideas that I want to execute and I have to believe that they're good, that they can make a difference and stand against this saturated creative bubble that we live in. I choose to believe in the people that surround me, to think that they have good intentions, that they won't betray me. I choose to believe in good energy, good juju, spreading positive vibes into the world.

Having something to believe in isn't easy; that's because it's about us having faith into something (someone, ourselves) and, you know, trusting the world out there is difficult. But a challenge is good when we need motivation, even if it's finding something to latch on, right? And by latching I don't mean depending on something, it's like, getting some extra inspiration-motivation to get things done.   And, of course, I do encourage believing in ourselves and the things we do and are capable of doing, okay?

// Supongo que uno de los desafíos más grandes que tenemos en la vida es encontrar algo en qué creer cuando parece que nada nos mantiene centrados y en orden. No soy una persona religiosa, no creo en un poder superior en la forma de un hombre controlando nuestros destinos (aunque respeto a la gente que tiene suficiente fuerza de voluntad para creer eso); sin embargo, creo en las personas, en la energía, en las acciones. Somos responsables de todo lo que sale de nuestras bocas, de las cosas que elegimos (o no) hacer; tenemos influencia sobre otros y esa no es una labor pequeña.

En estos momentos, elijo creer en mí mismo y en las cosas que hago. Tengo planeas e ideas que quiero ejecutar y tengo que creer que son buenas, que pueden hacer una diferencia y tener un lugar en esta burbuja creativa saturada en que vivimos. Elijo creer en las personas que me rodean, pensar que tienen buenas intenciones, que no me van a traicionar. Elijo creer en la buena energía, el buen juju, esparcir vibraciones positivas hacia el mundo.

Tener algo en qué creer no es fácil; eso es porque se trata de tenerle fe a algo (alguien, nosotros mismos) y, saben, confiar en el mundo exterior es difícil. Pero un desafío es bueno cuando necesitamos motivación, aún si eso es para encontrar algo a que anclarnos, ¿no? Y por anclarnos no me refiero a volvernos dependientes de algo, es como, conseguir algo de inspiración-motivación extra para hacer las cosas. Y, por supuesto, recomiendo fuertemente creer en nosotros mismos y las cosas que hacemos y somos capaces de hacer, ¿okay?
