Today, among some personal documents, I found a text I wrote about a year ago where I explain -don't really know why or to whom- why I started and keep this blog. I must say it is a pretty good reason and I am still thankful I did and, even though I don't post as much as I used to, when I do, it helps me keep real and keep things real.

Here's what I wrote back in August 2014.

"The main reason why I keep this blog is to have a record of myself, of who I am at different times and stages of my life. From time to time, I like to read old posts and see how I was like and how/if I’ve changed.

Today I was reading it and -basically- only one word came to mind: THANKFUL! I was very thankful before but now that I’ve gone through the rough stories again, through my reading and by remembering with those words the ones I left out, the untold stories, the details of the hardships, I feel nothing but happy and thankful for the chances life has given me, certainly not for free, I am also thankful for being the kind of person that takes chances coz that’s what always leads you elsewhere and you never know, but maybe some time, it will lead you exactly where you wanna go. The thing with chances is that you gotta be wise enough to take them as they come because, believe me, they never come twice. So try not to be so uptight and over-think things as you may lose a good chance. Now, it is true that if something is meant to be, it is meant to be; but you cannot leave everything to fate, you gotta make a little effort to help it and help yourself.
