Stepping Into The Unknown

When you decide to step into the unknown, life rewards you with a whole new world of opportunities. It is there where miracles happen, and one day, when you less expect it, like magic, almost instantly, life revolutionize your whole reality, and the impossible becomes possible, what seemed only a fantasy becomes real, you can suddenly touch that what it seemed unreachable, your heartbeat increases, the adrenaline runs through your veins, you feel what you have never felt before, you give a deep breath, and then in that precise moment your soul awakens, you become conscious. You have stepped into the unknown, now the adventure begins.

 

 

"Relinquish your attachment to the known, step into the unknown, and you will step into the field of all possibilities." - Deepak Chopra

 

 

You realize that now you are truly alive, and you understand the meaning of being alive and that feeling connects you with your soul, with your true self and everything else around you. You feel reborn, your soul expands, a strong energy travels all over your body flooding it with happiness, and that strong and deep energy is then released into the world, out to the universe, a new star is born, a whole new world is now in front of you, your awake, you are alive and that is all that matters. 

The unknown holds within the greatest treasures, because it is there, in that particular place where everything is possible, there are no boundaries, it is the place where magic happens but in order to be able to experience the feeling of being in such place one has to be willing to cross the barrier, to leave behind what is known, what is comfortable and be ready to expose yourself to a whole new reality and in order to do this we have to be willing to face our fears, to be ready to take risks, and to go for it, no buts, no maybes, no halfway, all in, deeply, completely, with your whole self. 

 

 

“You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.” – Alan Alda

 

 

That is what I experienced when I decided to turn my whole life around by stepping into the unknown. It takes months to decide and one minute to make it happen, one minute to change your whole life, and then miracles happen. In that moment of decision, of action, life enlightened me, it showed me a world of new opportunities and slowly it whispered: “Go my dear soul, I set you free, go get what makes your soul on fire, the world is yours, discover it, experience it, come back to where you belong, take what you deserve, and be happy.” 

My 30s arrived with doubts and fears, with an old world falling into pieces, burning, disappearing, the afraid of becoming old, a failing marriage, uncertainty, but they also came with a whole new world ahead of me, calling my name, extending a hand from the sky, like if it was God itself, taking my hand, pulling me up from the hole, saving me, and telling me: “There is a whole new world waiting for you, you have wished, here is the answer to your prayer, the life you deserve awaits you”. The unknown, the wild, the miraculous, the impossible was in front of me, and I decided to take it, I wanted to do that what feared me, I wanted to do the things no one thought I could do, I wanted to start again, to dream a new dream, to shape a new life and create a brand new future, I wanted to experience life on a whole new level and then the magic happened. 

 

 

“When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for you to stand upon or you will be taught to fly.” – Patrick Overton 

 

 

I was invited to join a 5 days Expedition by the owners of the company I work for as a present for the arrival of the wonderful and scary 30s. The trip consisted in driving your own sled with the company of 6 Alaskan Huskies through the most magical Arctic tundra in all different weather conditions, sleeping in tents, with no modern comfort, rather traveling back in time, to a more primitive kind of lifestyle, the one we lost, the one that connects our soul back to our roots, the one that provides the most wonderful of the feelings, the one that challenges you and makes you realize that the simplest things were, are and will always be the most important thing a human can have. 

With no showers or toilets, no electricity, sleeping in tents surrounded by snow, with the weather changing from a completely clear sky to a snowstorm and furious winds in a matter of seconds, driving the sled with unstoppable and energetic Alaskan Huskies from an easy path to an exhausting uphill to narrow and bumpy trails. After hours on the sleds, we arrived at the different places where we stayed for the night, we needed to unpack the sleds, feed the dogs, build the tents, melt snow to have warm water to drink and water to warm up already made food we carried out in boxes on our sleds, to finally taking out the heavy winter boots and expedition jackets and pants, to find shelter inside a sleeping bag on a tent, in the wilderness, our roof was the sky, our floor the snow, our neighbors: the Huskies, and nature in its more pure state. Waking up in the Arctic, preparing breakfast in the tent, putting on the boots and jackets, and getting ready to put everything back on the sleds to continue the journey into the wild.  With our huskies and sled ready we began the journey again, more fascinating landscapes, more emotions, the feeling of being truly alive, an intense sense of freedom, a deep connection with nature and happiness in its purest state. 

After 5 intense and magical days, and after driving for hours in the most wonderful conditions surrounded by the most amazing landscapes we reached the pickup point where they were waiting for us. The trip was finished but it was not the end but the beginning of a whole new life. I had tears in my eyes, we said goodbye to each other, and especially we gave our respect to the most magical of the beings, the Alaskan Huskies, the ones that with their enthusiasm, their free spirit, their passion, and strength took us for the most wonderful of the trips. 

 

 

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” – Eleonora Duse 

 

 

I was not the same, I was reborn, I understood that I have put myself into a place far away from my comfort zone and that I have succeeded, and I understood that real life happens when you decide to do what you are afraid of doing, or when you do what you truly love, when you enjoy life to the fullest, when you are not afraid of the unknown but you rather embrace it, and you let it surprise you. You discover your true strength, your true self, your true nature and only then you know that the sky is the limit. 

 

 

 

 

In order to experience an extraordinary life, one must be willing to leave the comfort of ordinary life. Leaving the shore, sailing to the unknown, discovering new worlds, making possible the impossible and living life to the fullest! 

Become an Unstoppable Dreamer

I am an unstoppable dreamer. I dream from the smallest dreams to the biggest ones, from the most insignificant to the extraordinary ones. For me, dreams are different adventures along the way in the path of our life, and every single one is a challenge that makes our life much more meaningful. My brain is addicted to goals and dreams, and my soul is an unstoppable seeker of new adventures. Deep inside we are all dreamers, but not all dare to dream, and not all are willing to make them happen. Are you a dreamer and are you willing to make them come true?

 

 

 

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” - Harriet Tubman

 

 

 

As long as you have something to believe in, the emptiness that you may find inside yourself is filled up with the most magical of the feelings: Love, excitement, joy, satisfaction, you name it. Believing in the kind of things that make your soul dance is what transforms an ordinary life to an extraordinary one and having dreams and believe they can come true is what lights the spark hidden inside all of us, is what pushes us to the limit, is what reveals the greatness within us.

One particular thing about this society is that it has taught us that there are two kinds of dreams: the impossible ones and those that can be bought and that by buying them one can obtain what we are all looking for: Happiness. The society in where we live has corrupted, raped, torn apart, messed up dreams, and have used them as a selling machine. It created in us the necessity to have certain things, it shaped our own beliefs and with that sabotaged our dreams, and gave us false dreams and a wrong idea of happiness. 

 

 

“Dream your own dreams, achieve your own goals. Your journey is your own and unique.” – Roy Bennett

 

 

That is why we tend to go after things we do not need with the wrong idea that will make us happy, and the price we end up paying is higher than the price of a certain product or service themselves. Therefore, it is important to remember to dream our own dreams and not make the dreams of others become our dreams, do not fall in the trap of thinking that by doing what you have to do in life, what is established, what you are supposed to do is the only dream we can dream, but rather believe that life is a box full of tiny little dreams and magical experiences waiting to be discovered. Do not be afraid of dreaming, just open your soul to the realm of dreams, fly, imagine, discover, make them happen.

The problem is that we tend to be afraid of dreams, or in fact, we are afraid of failure, we are afraid of being disappointed, so we avoid dreaming big, or anything at all, in order to avoid the painful experience of being rejected and knocked down by reality. But you know what? Reality is an illusion and failure is only real for those who have given up. Absolutely no one can tell you that you cannot dream, no one is the owner of your dreams and the ruler of your imagination, you have the power to dream infinite dreams, so go ahead, dream big, dream always!

 

 

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. “ – Anatole France

 

 

One thing important to remember is that perhaps not all dreams will come true, but that is what makes them so special, what meaning would dreams have if all of them were possible to come true? There would be no excitement, no passion, no joy, and life would have not been the same without dreamers and dreams, and would have been merely a tedious and dreadful experience. Therefore, do not be afraid to be a dreamer, do not be afraid to dream, just dream, make them happen, dream again, and above all enjoy life with what you have, where you are, do not need anything to be happy, just be, and then enjoy the path to your dreams, and work hard to make them happen.

 

 

 

I am a believer, I am a dreamer, I am happy here and now. I live the life of my dreams, I am free. You can be a dreamer too, you can dream and live the life of your dreams!
