Truth Tuesday

Nina from ninaonthemoon.com is a beautiful blogger with beautiful writing and a beautiful heart. She had a fabulous idea in starting a tradition, maybe someday a movement, consisting of everyone doing their part by posting something true on Tuesdays. Specifically, it's something personal and intimate that you get the courage to share with the world, whether it's a dream, goal, memory or something else. 

My first truth tuesday?

I am terrified of what the future holds.

There, I said it. I've been thinking it all year long, pondering between stages of denial and self-assurance, to reckless trust and putting all my hopes and prayers into the Universe's almight. That hasn't changed. 

The fact remains, I start University in a foreign country in a month or so, and there are so many aspects of it that make me have a range of reactions, from biting my lip to being petrified and becoming white as a wall. Financially, psychologically, socially, my life will be different by 180 degrees. And it terrifies me. It makes me happy and anxious, but it also scares me to no end. 

That's my truth right now, you have no idea how hard it was for me to say it, but I am ever so glad I did.


  1. JO! you made my day with your truth <3 i was also once scared of what the future holds, but i realized that sometimes fear and worry stops us from reaching our true capacity..if that makes any sense..lol.

    your new journey, will be new and exciting :) i can't wait to hear about how school goes for you, what are you studying?

    xox and thank you for that beautiful truth!

  2. thank you Caro (do you mind me calling you that?) for the kind words.

    and yes, I understand what you're saying, but there are moments when the fear takes over and I have to talk myself into being calm.

    I'll be studying either European Studies or Arts&Culture, Media Culture specifically.

  3. Great thing! Maybe it's the hardest to be true to yourself. Then you just use this audience to make you listen to yourself (read: me listen to myself).

  4. great point S! I've always struggled with sharing too little on my previous blogging experiences because I felt too much pressure in being held accountable - to myself and potential readers/commenters.

    but that's actually the great thing about being honest, I now realize. it enables you to follow through with things that otherwise may slip by unnoticed, because you never acknowledged them, that much less other people.

    thanks for commenting!

  5. hehehe and yes, you can def call me Caro :P your studies sound very interesting!!!


I love&appreciate comments, preferably in English/French/Spanish/Romanian.
