A List That Will...

I try and feature guest bloggers regularly; here's one who's also a member of Her Campus Blogger Network, and who will be featuring a few posts on The Kenyan Nomad over the next few months. Meet Ariadna!

I am Ariadna Arredondo, founder of The Always Believer.  I am a happy-go-lucky girl who is making her own dreams happen, forever positive and overcoming obstacles along the road. Being a bit shaken down due to life circumstances, I've managed to get back up, get going and get strong. I love to help people, make them laugh and feel wanted. You deserve to shine and follow your passion. This is what I am all about, plus telling you the truth you want to hear.

Hey there buddie!
Here, have a list!
A list of things that will make life even more wonderful:
Take your pick or do them all, let us know your favorite and just go for it!

1) Tell her that you love her. Tell him that you love him.
Your mother, your father,  your sister, your brother, your aunt, your uncle, your grandmother, your grandfather, your cousin, your best friend…. tell them you love them to pieces, tell one, tell them all, tell them with all your heart that they make your heart pump louder and stronger each day.

2) Treat yourself.
Treat yourself to the best treat ever. Go to the Caribbean. Okay, okay, maybe you can’t go there. You can however indulge yourself to something has been catching your eye for some time now. Go, do it. Now.

3) Binge watch, no doubts.
Come on, let’s be real, Spring might be around the corner yet it still takes forever to take the blankets away, so take advantage and binge watch away. And even if you are reading this from the other side of the world, (hello Chile!) and it is Summer… it also okay to binge watch anyway. Just chill, relax, zoom out and don’t have a doubt. We won’t tell!

4) Mail a letter.
Yup, dust off the notebook, break open those new pens and write your heart out. Okay, it doesn’t have to be a long heartfelt letter, just give a go and give a simple hello! It will make their day, spread a little of your handwriting around. Come on, you know you want to!

5) Pick up that old talent of yours!
Yeah, let’s be real. You haven’t been maintaining your end of the bargain when it comes to any of your long-lost hobbies. It’s time to pick it up for a bit and give it another go!

6) Hug. Smile.
Smile at strangers, smile at the bus driver, smile at your boss, smile and smile and smile because we all know that when you smile, the whole world will smile with you. Hug, hug your friends, hug your family. Hug them every chance you get. Hug them tightly.

7) Hot cocoa time. Or tea. Or coffee. Or wine.
Guys! It feels oh so nice to sit down and unwind and finally have time to do what you never have time for… so, sit down tonight or on a Friday and take some time to sip your favorite drink.

8) Forgive. Yourself.
Choose one thing, now, yes, right now, that you have been holding back, that thing that you have been feeling guilty about…. breathe in, breathe out, let go. Come on, take the right steps right now towards your freedom.

9) Dance.
Just do it. Put your song on. And dance to it. Enough said.

10) Getting rid of one body insecurity at a time.
This takes time, once again, choose one and let it go. Embrace it, feel it, love it. (yes,with time)

And for the extra touch: JUST BE REAL.
Be you, yourself, just you.
Go with the flow, let your feelings show and take a trip on the wild side, any of your choosing.
We believe in you!
The Always Believer
