Blanca Suarez for Vogue Spain, August 2014

Vogue.es

 

She left us all in suspense in one of her latest blog posts, but we all new something exciting was afoot.

Yo me siento expectante, nerviosa, satisfecha por todo lo que me ha pasado este tiempo. Sin arrepentirme de nada y contenta por haberme dejado sorprender por las cosas y por la vida. Pero lo curioso es que cuanto más mayor me hago, a veces más pequeña me siento; sobre todo, cuando hay algo en el horizonte que significa mucho para mí… Lo ves en la lejanía y brotan inseguridades, miedos; te haces un bicho bola, te abrumas y saltan ‘Las preguntas’: ¿Por qué me pasa esto a mí? ¿Me lo merezco? Y entonces salto con una sonrisa de medio lado y me digo: ‘Calla tonta, y disfruta. Si te sigues haciendo preguntas este instante pasará y no lo habrás disfrutado lo suficiente. Lo cierto es que algo bonito esta por venir y me encantaría compartirlo con vosotros lo antes posible… Queda poco.”-El Blog de Blanca Suarez for Vogue.es

 

Translation: “I feel expectant, nervous, satisfied by everything that has happened to me in this time. Without regretting anything and happy for having allowed myself to be surprised by things and life. But the curious thing is that the older I get, sometimes the smaller I feel; especially, when there is something in the horizon that means a lot to me… you see it in the distance and insecurities blossom, fears make you into a little ball, you are overwhelmed and “the questions” pop up: Why is this happening to me? Do I deserve this? And then a side smile flashes on my face, and I tell myself: Shut up, silly and enjoy. If you keep questioning, this moment will pass and you will not have enjoyed it enough. The truth is that something beautiful is coming, and I would love to share it with you as soon as possible…there is little [time] left [until then].” -From Blanca Suarez’s Blog for Vogue Spain

In the words of Blanca Suarez (translated from her blog post “La Cuenta Atras“):

“Happy Monday, and dream, because who knows… when you least expect it, your dream will come true. It’s like that.”

Waiting for it to hit newsstands and hoping your dreams come true, as well.

Yours,

Gabriela Yareliz
