Velina Vateva Posted over 1 year ago What advice would you give a younger you? Perhaps I would say a lot, forgetting the most important but then "the most important" is quite personal and that's how it should be so it is gonna be ok even like this, even more - because of this. What I would have liked to have known back then is that there is no shame to take yourself as a beginner but most probably back then I would not be able to see it the way I do now. So the next is that every time comes with its reasons, images, lessons, still you can always approach any matter in a better way, you can always change and not be afraid to explore no matter the age but only when you know what you are doing and really taking the responsibility - in the meaning of being able to explain to yourself and, if necessary, to any person involved in the situation, what you did and why you did it, simply being consious and present, without overdoze of fooling around. Sure, be reckless, passionate, totally crazy but just for the sake of joy. Listen to music, listen to yourself (go for a ride or a walk in a place you think you know so very well and try to see it as if for the first time), look at people and their reactions (without your interest standing in their way), consider your reactions as if from a distance, travel and while you travel talk with the people you meet, not push it, if the conversation happens, most of the times it's in a very natural and, risking to sound pathetic, nourishing way, just because usually it gives some food for thought, at least gets you out of your nest and you start thinking about other matter, different from yours and still they lead you to your matters hopefully in a better way. The distance sometimes can be a great chance to have a closer view. Read whatever you love, find new authors, share what you have read, discuss or simply tell the story, share your passion, do the things you love whenever you can but again don't rush it, it works with your presence (not with your intervention). Don't be afraid to risk. Love, love, love.
