Positive post and FOTD

I found an amazing blog and with it a beautiful writing thats says:

"Most of my life has been spent trying to shrink myself. Trying to become smaller. Quieter. Less sensitive. Less opinionated. Less needy. Less me. Because I didn’t want to be a burden. I didn’t want to be too much or push people away. I wanted people to like me. I wanted to be cared for and valued. I wanted to be wanted. So for years, I sacrificed myself for the sake of making other people happy. And for years, I suffered. But I’m tired of suffering, and I’m done shrinking. It’s not my job to change who I am in order to become someone else’s idea of a worthwhile human being. I am worthwhile. Not because other people think I am, but because I exist, and therefore I matter. My thoughts matter. My feelings matter. My voice matters. And with or without anyone’s permission or approval, I will continue to be who I am and speak my truth. Even if it makes people angry. Even if it makes them uncomfortable. Even if they choose to leave. I refuse to shrink. I choose to take up space. I choose to honor my feelings. I choose to give myself permission to get my needs met. I choose to make self-care a priority. I choose me."
— Daniell Koepkeh


I'm so happy to find it and Goddd how accurate this is.

Five years ago I took the best decision of my life, the one that changed me and changed my perspective of everything that surrounded me, FOREVER. It's not news for me that I have never fit in, I was always the weirdo in every school I went to or have never fit into any group.



And because of that, I started to adjust myself to others. I was afraid that people didn't like me, I could say I became something I wasn't. I was always trying to make everyone around me happy. I wanted so bad to be "wanted", accepted or find someone who fill up the holes, the emptiness. All I ever wanted was to be accepted for who I was, with all my flaws and insecurities.


But NONE of that would ever happen If I didn't accept myself first. Until I finished the war I had inside, until I looked at me and loved each inch of my body, all my imperfection; I needed to find things by myself first. I needed to realize it was ok to be selfish once in a while, it's healthy and necessary. And most importantly it's impossible to make everyone happy.

I was done and made my decision, I started to accept and love myself. I didn't want people to use me anymore, I didn't want to be betrayed, I didn't want to suffer anymore, I didn't want to adapt myself, I wanted to be happy.

It was a very long Journey (I'm still on it) and I learnt a lot along the way. I set myself free, I cut negative things and people out of my life, I became more positive looking always at the bright side of things. I still don't fit in much, but I'm happy and comfortable with it, who said everyone has to like you?

For me the key to my happiness is to know my worth, to accept myself and to stay positive. Even when I don't have hope.

When you distance yourself from negativity, good things start to happen to you. And for every life you touch, even if you hurt them, leave something positive in their lives.

Encontré un blog y en el una frase hermosa. Estoy tan feliz de haberlo encontrarlo y Dios mioooo todo como que encaja.

Hace cinco años tomé la mejor decisión de mi vida, la que me cambió a mi y a mi perspectiva de todo lo que me rodeaba, para SIEMPRE. No es noticia nueva para mí que nunca he encajado, siempre fui el bicho raro en cada colegio que estuve o nunca encajé en ningún grupo.

Debido a eso, comencé a adaptarme a los demás. Tenía miedo de no gustarle a la gente, podría decir que me convertí en algo que no era. Siempre estaba tratando de hacer feliz a todos a mi alrededor. Deseaba tanto ser "querida", aceptada o encontrar a alguien que llenara el vacío. Todo lo que quería era ser aceptada por quién era, con todos mis defectos e inseguridades. Estaba prácticamente desesperada.

Pero NADA de eso iba a suceder si no me aceptaba primero a mí misma. Hasta que terminé con la guerra interna, hasta que me miré y amé cada centímetro de mi cuerpo incluyendo todas mis imperfecciones; primero necesitaba encontrarme a mí. Necesitaba darme cuenta que estaba bien ser egoísta de vez en cuando, es saludable y necesario. Y lo más importante que es imposible hacer feliz a todo el mundo.



Yo toqué fondo y tomé mi decisión, empecé a aceptarme y amarme. No quería que la gente me utilizara más, no quería ser traicionada, no quería sufrir más, no quería adaptarme, quería ser feliz.

Fue un viaje muy largo (todavía estoy en él) y he aprendido mucho en el camino. Me acepté, corté las personas y cosas negativas de mi vida, me volví más positiva buscando siempre el lado bueno de las cosas. Todavía no encajo mucho, pero me siento cómoda y feliz con eso ¿Quién dijo que le tienes que gustar a todo el mundo?

Para mí la clave de mi felicidad es saber lo que valgo, aceptarme y mantenerme positiva. Incluso cuando no tengo esperanza.

Tengo una filosofía de vida: Cuando te distancias de la negatividad, cosas buenas empiezan a pasar. Y por cada vida que toques, incluso si los has herido, deja algo positivo en sus vidas.

OOTD: Comfy look

These pictures were taken with my cellphone last Saturday while I was walking with my sister after class.

But anyway, I found this beautiful wall and automatically asked my sis to take some pictures for the blog.

Hope you guys like it :)

Espero que les guste :)

Hello, hello! Here I come with a makeup look I wore for an afternoon day out. I usually don't wear too much makeup during the day I always stick to my Everyday Minerals foundation, a simple cat eye, mascara and nude lipstick. But this time I was in the mood to look "pretty". I hope you guys like this look, and if you do leave a comment below.

My 2014 in pictures

Yes, I said Goodbye 2014 (really Jacdami? ahaha everyone did) and let me tell you something 2014 YOU been good, very good, for real I'm proud to say that you are my favorite year so far. You started with the right foot and ended with the right one as well.

I had so many adventures and experiences.  I met new people-beautiful people on the inside,  travel outside my country and visited a few different places. 


I made wrong decisions but as well the right ones. I let new people in as I let go others, but at the end of the road this is what life is about, isn't?  I believe your life is defined by the choices you make, the people that sorrounds you and the memories you make with them. 


I have the theory that life is that thing that happens to you when you are so worry thinking about the negative things. When you are so busy thinking about what hurt you, what's going to do it and who you're going to hurt. Just accept any consequences that comes with your actions. Life is complicated, but it's worth to be explore, so that way you find out who you are and who you want to become. Focus on the positive side, the good, and learn from the bad. 


Live freely, have fun, eat those candies, get home at 3 am, fail in a class, quit your job and get a new one, yell someone, get into a fight, kiss a stranger, wear those tight jeans someone told you not to wear. Do whatever makes you happy no matter how crazy sounds or what the standards are, because your youth will pass in the blink of the eyes. And the most important thing... trust your gut, it will never fail you.



---




Sí, me despedí del 2014 (en verdad Jacdami? Ahaha todos lo hicieron) y déjame decirte algo 2014 has sido bueno, demasiado bueno, de verdad me siento orgullosa de decir que eres mi año favorito hasta ahora.  Comenzaste con el pie derecho y terminaste con el mismo.

Tuve tantas aventuras y experiencias. Conocí a gente nueva-gente hermosas por dentro, viajé fuera de mi país y visité diferentes lugares.


Tomé decisiones equivocadas, pero también las correctas. Dejé entrar nuevas personas a mi vida como dejé ir a otras,  al final de esto es lo que se trata la vida ¿no? Creo que tu vida se define por las decisiones que tomas, las personas que te rodean y los recuerdos que haces con ellas.

Tengo la teoría que la vida es eso que te pasa  cuando estas  preocupada pensando en las cosas negativas. Cuando estás tan ocupada pensando en que te hará daño, que va a hacerlo y a quién vas a lastimar. Sólo acepta las consecuencias que vienen con tus acciones. La vida es complicada, pero vale la pena explorarla, así de esa manera a averiguas quién eres y quién quieres llegar a ser. Centrate en el lado positivo, en lo bueno y aprende de lo malo.

Vive libremente, diviertete, comete esos dulces, llega a tu casa a las 3 de la madrugada, quemate en una clase, deja el trabajo y consigue uno nuevo, gritale a alguien, pelea, besa a un desconocido, ponte los pantalones apretados que fulano te dijo que no usaras. Has lo que te haga feliz, no importa que loco parezca o cuales son los estándares. Porque la juventud te pasará en un abrir y cerrar de los ojos. Y lo más importante ... confia en tu instinto, que nunca te fallará.

I got inspired, lol. Anyway, here's my year in picture...

Me inspiré, lol. Aquí está mi año en fotos...



I tried new things
 -
 Probé cosas nuevas 
Had a roadtrip to Lancaster just for a small concert that one of my favorite singer (Andrew Belle) was having in that city.


  My sister won 2 tickets for Bruno Mars' concert Hersheypark , and of course the second ticket was for me lol

-

Mi hermana ganó entradas para ir a ver a Bruno Mars en vivo en Hershey Park, y por supuesto la segunda entrada era para mi lol

I was in a Coca-Cola commercial, 2014 FIFA World Cup Brasil, which made me feel really lucky even though I don't understand anything about football.

-

Participé en el comercial ce Coca-Cola, 2014 FIFA World Cup Brasil, lo que hizo sentir suertuda aunque no entienda nada de fútbol.

I had to make a lot of stuff by my own, cook, do laundry, clean, do dishes... 

-

Tuve que hacer muchas cosas por mi cuenta, cocinar, fregar, lavar, limpiar...

My hair looked so healthy and then I screwed up

-
Mi cabello se veía tan saludable y luego lo dañé todo


I had the worst job a person can have, housekeeping, but I was working with such great people that were always there when I felt like quitting.

-

Tuve el trabajo mas horrible que una persona puede tener, housekeeping, pero estaba trabajando con gente tan chula que siempre estuvieron ahí cuando sentía que quería renunciar

I adopted these babies and were like my daughters
-

Adopté a estas tres manganzonas y fueron como mis hijas

I started tattooing myself

Empecé a tatuarme

I visited my best friend in New York and must confess that NY did not surprised me as I though it was going to do. But I did like it, I would love to go back one day.

-

Visité a mi mejor amigo en Nueva York y debo confesar que NY no me sorprendió tanto como pensé que lo haría. Pero si me gustó,  me gustaría volver otra vez algún día.

One of my dearest friend visited me in Harrisburg and we had such an amazing time :)

I spent a lot of time with these crazy fellas. We had bonfires eating Hungarian food, listening African music and drinking the crazy mix of red wine with coke (even though I was drinking my Malibu, lol).

---

Pasé mucho tiempo con estos locos. Tuvimos fogatas comiendo comida Húngara, escuchando música Africana y bebiendo una mezcla rara de vino tinto con coca-cola (aunque yo estaba bebiendo mi Malibu, lol)



 Started woking with amazing people :)

Spent bdays with old friends :)


 That time I found a dozen of beers in a room I was cleaning, Jesus! It was like finding a billion dollars ahha

And when our taxi driver filled our fridge of ice cream, more than 30!!! That was priceless

I developed an addiction to the Naked Juice, OMG! That smoothie is so good. And one of my favorite beer in the trip was the Bud light lime, but nothing will replace my Presidente (dominican beer)


I wore sneaker almost all summer because I walked a lot and they were so comfy.

I don't even have to tell you how often I went shopping, I believe was almost everyday lol

Slept in every bus haha



I spent time with my family and found out that I actually like kids, well maybe for a couple days haha



I could actually say that 2014 was my year, I'm happy and I feel so blessed for all things that happened to me the past year. I'm looking forward to have an excellent 2015 even though this year is gonna be focused on School and my professional life. In the love side, well, I won't worry about that for now lol.

Hope you guys like the post, leave a comment if you want to. Happy New Year :)
