Hello my fellow readers,DSC_0513As I’m sitting in the car’s backseat, looking out the window to see the beauty of the Queensboro Bridge, I’m reflecting on this past week. It’s amazing how much one week could have more influence on you than a decade can. This week taught me how to be strong, the need and use of taking breaks and time for myself, and the most important lesson: honesty.

There are moments at times when you don’t want to tell the truth to individuals because you feel as if it could end up hurting their feelings, however, the truth will eventually need to be told. Nothing’s better, trust me. It can be difficult; you can start mumbling or blabbing, but believe me: it will lead to less or no problems if the truth is told.

Most of you already know this, however, I’m recounting this because I’ve had several experiences with bedazzling the honest side of truth that needed to be spoken in the first place. All types of truth have to be told. Besides, if you have been following me for a while, you know I try to be as open with you-my readers-as possible. Therefore, I’d rather tell you the real reasons behind my absence on several social media networks than cover it up.

I’m a high school student who’s going through the process of applying to college. Those of you who know how it feels like, will understand what I’m talking about, but if you don’t, it’s difficult, but definitely not impossible. In addition, I’m the type of person who’d rather be doing something every day than sit with her arms crossed waiting for things to happen instead of making them happen. Because of that, I don’t like taking breaks often. Don’t get me wrong-I love to relax once in a while, but the majority of time, I’ll be doing something. Whether it’s the photoshoots for the blog, or just in general, blog “stuff,” I always like to keep myself occupied. Besides, breaks freak me out. I always feel as if there is not enough time in a day to do everything I would like to accomplish on a specific day. Therefore, my system collapsed this week. Trust me, there is nothing worse than feeling as if your body is working against you and not for you. So, one of the lessons that was learned this past week was to actually take a break or even a quick nap once in a while (and not freak out about it), but a break has to be taken.

As you know, I do not like to focus on the negativity of things, thus, I would also like to say that the lessons learned this week were useful and very needed because at times, any individual needs some sort of a wake up call to realize that they need to concentrate less/more on certain aspects of their life. Unfortunately, one can never predict what type of a wake-up call they might get. Just like people, wake-up calls can be different: happy wake-up calls come as rewards to remind you that you are on the right track, and unexpectedly-unpleasant wake-up calls come as a sickness or a mood swing in order to remind you to slow down once in a while and realize that you have to breathe.

That refocus on aspects of one’s life is what caused me to name this post “definition” because the word “definition” has a variety of meanings that apply to a vast number of things. In my case, the word “definition” is meant to slow me down and ask me to reasses my speed in life as well as the causes of my worry. In other cases, it could apply to the definition of oneself, the definition of one’s values, or the simplest of definitions: the definition of a word. Life is a “thing” that needs to be lived and not worked-up in. So, while you still have one, go out and experience it. Just breathe and find yourself. And after you will do that, everything will fall into place. One day or another, but it will. Trust me on this one.
