Here are todays favourite motivations:
Vibha Babbar, from Life is a Bitter & Sweet Symphony Blog (India) says:
Writing happens to me, like love. I have traveled all over the world, in my dreams. I have lots of dreams that I weave in my words. And I want to transfer those dreams to the real world. Poetry gives me an adrenaline rush, and at times it induces an enveloping, nurturing calm. I mostly write for myself, and sometimes, just to be read. I read somewhere, “There’s no money in poetry, but then there’s no poetry in money!” I want to wake up to an another world, and let it know that among the words and in the alphabets strewn together; among the commas and semi-colons; in between those spaces and in the lack of them, there is life. And dreams, and desires. I would like to feast on them along with the world. I want to give them the postcards of my mind and heart to everyone out there, and create a beautiful story of togetherness.
Brenda Bastidas, from Live. Laugh. Love & Make Up Blog (Mexico) says:
I’m a fashion blogger that loves traveling, smiling, a warm cup of tea & reading. To have the opportunity to be one of the 16 bloggers to have a lifetime experience would be absolutely marvelous. Meeting new people, knowing new cultures and living for a better tomorrow really does make a difference.
Soledad Moran, from The Friendship Map (Argentina) says:
The Friendship Map tells the story of two girls from different countries (Argentina and Brazil) who met during a trip and became friends beyond cultural boundaries and distance. As we plan a trip together every year, we decided to create a map of all the places we’ve visited so far. But did you take a look at that map? It needs to be updated with more pins asap! So please vote for our story and help us to meet again, somewhere out there. Thank you, Gracias, Obrigada!
Lynne Morton, from Plan C Blog (Australia) says:
I learnt four years ago that no matter how much we plan we cannot control our lives: no matter how much you think you’ve got the bases covered life will still manage to throw you a curve ball. Therefore in July 2010 I decided to stop trying to control it and go with the flow instead. It’s not always been an easy path to follow but it has been immensely rewarding. I’ve been travelling for over two years now and the only thing I know for sure is I never want to stop. My motto in life should be “why not?” as I love to travel and relish the new experiences it brings. I believe life is there to be lived and will try almost anything once. The idea of not getting to choose where I’d go and being sent somewhere completely random appeals to my sense of adventure. I’d love the chance to swap lives with someone because I have discovered that the best way to learn about a country and its culture is to go there. Not only do love learning about different places and ways of life I find that meeting people from different cultures makes me constantly question and reassess my own views and opinions on the world which I firmly believe we should never stop doing.
