Follow Your Bliss

Thanks to Lindy this week I have learned a new expression in English “Follow your bliss”. I had to look for it in the translator and I liked it a lot.

This expression has reminded me of a phrase that appears in the book “My Chocolate Planet“, by my friend Manuel Cortés.

“When you have to choose between two options,

take always the one that has chocolate”

Since I read that book, I have kept this phrase in my heart, it is always good to remember that when choosing should prevail what makes us dream, what marks that internal compass that knows the path of happiness.

Of course when I think of happiness, the first thing that comes to mind is family. Spending time with them, that everything goes well for us, is what brings me the most happiness.

But if we talk about moments or personal hobbies that I love… let me think…

Reviewing this self-portrait that I made using the Knolling system, I think we could say that two of the things that excite me are…


…to read.

And taking photos.

These photographs were taken by Miguel A. Riazuelo, for an activity that we did in my photography group. I also told about this experience in my other blog Aventarte.

  1. Nicely done Ana – it looks like the photography project was amazing! And who can resist a great read! I just finished the new John Doerr novel Cloud Cuckooland and absolutely loved it. We can immerse ourselves in stories that great writers bring to life for us and the rest of the world simply fades away! Well done.

    1. Thank you, Tina.
      It was a great challenge for me to participate in this PhotographerxPhotographer activity. It’s not easy for me to portray people, or to be on the other side of the camera, but it was certainly very interesting.
      I don’t know anything about John Doerr, I’ll look him up.


  2. Very interesting post, Ana! I can see your bliss – and agree. I also learned a new expression and I had never heard of the Knolling System. I’ll have to try that!
