Attract with your mind what you want to have, but do it big

image.png

What a great surprise I got on Tuesday when I saw what the Power House Creatives contest organized by my friend @zord189 was about. Every week it fills us with surprises and invites us to travel back in time. This week’s contest is about remembering that thing you loved to buy and generated a lot of happiness.

In my life many things have generated happiness, I have bought tourist packages that have taken us to great places, I bought years ago a dog called tutti that although it turned my house upside down filled our lives with joy, I have also bought clothes that when I wear them I look beautiful; even the book «One hundred years of solitude» special edition by the author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, fills me with satisfaction.

I’m going to opt for the story that I definitely love and it brings out a few sighs in me as I remember how it happened.

![3a361-28.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmWtvVJCCSseTG8NPaedUeGkAv8UKDkfTHn57kPEvAtDkE/3a361-28.png)

After my postpartum rest I went back to work and I met a very cool team, among those was Mr. Jose Flores, with him I made a very good friendship, I remember that every night he washed his car in the parking lot while I watered the plants; One night I sat down to watch him wash the car and told him that one day I was going to buy it for him, the funniest thing was that I didn’t have a single penny in my pocket but what I had at that moment was a dream, a longing and an enormous desire to continue growing, my friend told me with a smile that yes, he would sell it to me, he would collect everything he could and then I would pay him the rest. I really couldn’t believe it, I thought he was playing with me. The next day I asked him before I went home if what he had said was true and he said yes. We immediately did all the paperwork and soon after we had paid him everything. It was a Daewo, Matiz 2002, practically new. It was a very nice car, orange color that filled us with joy, with him we went for a ride with the family and on vacation took us to the Andes, a trip of almost 15 hours.

At the same time my husband took me to a meeting in the office and when a co-worker saw me he said sarcastically _»Now go and buy him the truck». My colleague was referring to a Terios truck, red, 2005, that my friend José Flores had just bought. And I said, «Someday.

Time went by and I was very happy with my pumpkin, that’s what we called the nuance. But the big surprise came one Sunday when we were celebrating Mother’s Day as a family, when I saw the phone ringing and I left the meeting to answer it. It was my friend José who was ringing and at that moment I thought it was to congratulate me on Mother’s Day; But it was not only for that, with a very serious voice he told me _»Gocha, I’ll sell you the truck, you’ll pay me as you can, consult with your husband and on Monday we’ll talk» I was suspended in the air, I didn’t know what to answer, I didn’t know what to think and in the midst of so many people I didn’t know how to react, we cut the call and my smile gave me away, I jumped, I shouted, I praised God, I embraced my husband and my children and I told everyone the news, that afternoon another reason to celebrate came together.

https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmWtvVJCCSseTG8NPaedUeGkAv8UKDkfTHn57kPEvAtDkE/3a361-28.png

On Monday I went to talk to Flores personally to know a little more about the business and he told me _»sell the car and get a loan from the company, don’t worry I’ll wait for you as long as it takes», nobody could believe it, a human being would do this for me, many would believe that we had something, that we were lovers or that I would miss something in return, but it wasn’t like that, it was just an act of complete kindness, gratitude, friendship.

Since then we were with our truck all over Venezuela, it took us to know many beautiful places in my country, Merida, Tachira, Valencia, Barinas, Maracay, Guarico, Zulia, Coro, Anzoategui, Caracas, Miranda, she was a warrior and we loved her and cared for her very much. It seems hard to believe that one can appreciate material things so much, but it was like that, she gave us a lot of happiness and that is why she deserved to be taken care of.

![image.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmYT4vSCpEeJC5U3xyb3DfcmqNW18ywriKJAdZ3Reu75NH/image.png)

For 9 years she was with us, but unfortunately because of the situation of the country we had to let her go with other owners so that they could continue to give her the care that we could not. I will always remember her with great affection because with her we lived moments full of happiness. For me she is still with us, because with what they gave us for her we bought a house on the beach, that is, even after she left she continues to give us the joy of having left us a place to continue enjoying and celebrating together as a family.

But don’t think we’re out of a car, no. God never abandons us and that’s why I tell you not to stop dreaming and dreaming big; I always thought about having a truck like the Hilux, maybe I didn’t get that one but I got a new white Mazda as a package and in a business very similar to the Terios, only with another person as wonderful as my co-worker to whom I hope life is giving back what he did for me in two opportunities. Wherever life has taken you, God bless you «Friend».

I wanted to bring this story to share what’s behind it:

– Never stop dreaming.
– Trust in God, that he never abandons you.
– Think big.
– Never give up.
– Don’t let others truncate your dreams.
– Life is one and you have to enjoy it.

🎂 My second anniversary on this wonderful platform. 🎉


One more year in family

I am very happy, on this day two years ago I made the decision to register at Steemit thanks to my friend @ndnthor who encouraged me to be part of this wonderful company. I will never forget his words «You have a talent for crafts and all those things you do can be rewarded by many people «***

![barras272.gif](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmXL4CZSGdCZ5R7L5QFdcMAa6HUeZiD8ELShUtcEBrxKH9/barras272.gif)

First of all I want to thank God for everything he gives me, it is a great blessing to be able to get up every day, breathe, see my children and do everything for them, I also want to thank God for allowing me to be, I know I make mistakes, I know I am not perfect, but he always forgives and with his infinite love he strengthens us and guides us in his arms. I ask him and I commend him for this new year that is beginning, I ask him for it to be a year that is full of good initiatives, that we can continue to grow together, always together, as one big family.

***Love for Steemit***

When we hear the word anniversary, we think of party, joy, dance, celebration, that’s how I feel on this day, from early on I shared the news with my children and my husband and they congratulated me, that brought out a big smile and made me start the day happy.

In Steemit we have had good and bad moments, it seems like a love relationship where you suffer but you enjoy it. In other opportunities I have confessed that I don’t know if it is obsession or passion, whatever it is, it is a feeling that motivates me every day to get up, to think about nice things, to work and in general it helps me to have a busy mind, without going into the subject of what is happening in my country, I think that Steemit has been a good place to support me and instead of being worried better to be busy.

***Friends***

To my friends, followers, new members, whales, fishes, groups, to all of them I can only express an infinite gratitude for each time you have supported me, I have laughed and enjoyed with you. The principles were not easy, there were many sleepless nights, long days of research, infinite thoughts given to each project, the continuous revisions to each code, rule and so on so that everything would go well and improve in each publication.***
Thank you all for your advice, for your corrections and of course thank you very much for every time you congratulated me and encouraged me to go on.

I definitely wouldn’t have succeeded if it hadn’t been for you.

![Image3.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmdQ3tC34yYfqunAY4XNehRhRDhxdS1rAzDqLviJvyLCeK/Imagen3.jpg)

Let’s keep on building this wonderful conglomerate, working as a team we will manage to stay and so we will walk together to victory. I will never tire of repeating that behind all this machinery there is an endless number of people with excellent human qualities, they are dedicated and ready to make everything go very well. They also correct mistakes and are always looking for changes that will make our life on the platform better.

I do not want to miss the opportunity to express my most sincere thanks to all my fans, with each of your votes encourage me to continue doing more and better work, thanks for your valuable opinions and comments.

PowerHouseCreatives Contest | Ready, Set, Write/He’s gone and taken my life.


<

div class=»text-justify»>

    When I arrived at the train station, he was already gone; my mind went blank and I felt that my breathing had stopped. It was as if my world had come to a standstill in an instant. The silence of the desolate station stunned me and an intense cold suddenly enveloped me; I don’t know how much time passed from that moment, I just know that when I reacted I felt the immense need to take a drink.

<https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmch1Kh2Rax2SF2zuirAcpmHx3tZaz35UYytpd7ygfEZQV/image.png

_It’s late, I was thinking to myself as I headed to the bar.

    I remembered her lips, her eyes, her hands caressing me. I asked the bartender for the strongest drink and I thought that with that I could stop feeling, that with that I could stop thinking. If only I had told him to stay. If only my pride had allowed me to speak. What can I do now? I sighed and saw out the window a couple of boyfriends laughing; for a moment I imagined their happy and blissful world, with no more problems than waiting for the train.

_There’s nothing to do, I’d better go home.

    The minutes passed slowly and my body didn’t want to respond. I left walking through the old street of the station while I watched the train arrive, I wanted to get on it and go look for it, but there was no more case, everything was already said between us.

    I got home and took the keys out of my bag, I didn’t want to go in, the loneliness wrapped me up tighter and I only wanted to cry until I died.

https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmVqxgErhk3H9iNSymkPbGKN2hDyWazcC8deYFMrQGLdJC/image.png

    As I entered I noticed something strange; suddenly a chill ran through my body. There was a pizza and two bottles of wine on the table. I couldn’t believe it, I ran quickly into the room and heard the shower; there he was.

    At that moment, mixed feelings were running through my mind, an incredible happiness that was generating a great peace. Not everything was lost, if I had returned it was because I wanted to solve things. I remained silent as I listened to the sound of water falling on her body.

_What do I do? What do I say?

    In that instant I shut my mind, just took off my clothes and gently walked into the shower as I ran my hand over her back. That night, there were no words, no words, just surrender, passion, love and sex.

    Well friends, I hope you liked my writing, it’s the first time I’ve done something like this, and I confess it wasn’t easy. They say the first time hurts. This PowerHouseCreatives Contest | Ready, Set, Write is made by my friend @zord from the community #powerhousecreative.

‘PowerHouseCreatives Contest’ «Steemit’s angels».

Hello friends, today I want to participate in the contest organized by @zord, he is a great member of the community #Powerhousecreative and is very interested in making activities not only to generate a monetary income, but also to awaken in us the curiosity about topics that make you think a little, here I found topics that have moved me inside, I remembered things that I never thought I would remember.

Today’s activity is about that respect, love, value that we give to our colleagues in the community of steemit, particularly I have found many friendly people, interesting, respectful and many with a great knowledge of how artistic is my great passion. Everything that has to do with the arts I like very much, painting, poetry, crafts, theater, creativity to the maximum, all that and more, I am passionate about it.

That’s why today I want to participate in the [PowerHouseCreatives Contest | Love Your Steemians](https://steemit.com/community/@zord189/powerhousecreativescontestloveyoursteemianscontestdetails-dh93ce138n), I want to show or make known a person that I admire and respect for a long time, her user is @Crosheille, maybe many people know her, she is always in everything.

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmNapinuM11uwJFcvzVBRjbKEW94Uu8h1NqrNDTR1SUkkA/image.png)

Since I met her I have learned a lot from her, starting I have seen that she is very organized and disciplined, not everybody can say that she has everything up to date, but she with her constancy and perseverance has taken her blog with a lot of style; her strong spn the crafts, she makes impressive things and although we speak different languages we understand each other through the needle and the thread. Everything she does fits perfectly, you can see the cleanliness in every detail and not all of us manage to achieve that; but not only her blog is about creativity, she also dedicates herself to guide and inspire others with motivating thoughts.

She is one of the main leaders of a community called #needleworkmonday and collaborator in another one called #steemitmamas, there you can always get her helping everybody, I wish and in steemit we could find more people like her, for me she is an example to follow.

One of his last posts is: [How my children learn](https://steemit.com/hive-120078/@crosheille/how-my-children-learn)

«Reestablishing an environment that encourages their learning and curiosity, allowing them to explore and get their hands dirty and letting them be free to be who they are is what we strive to do. We want them to be the best they can be»

The second Steemit user I’d like to tell you a little about is: @Alarconr22.arte, he’s a great partner, an example to follow in many ways.

His last publication was:
[CATRINA MAGRITTE – Traditional illustration in the style of the surrealist painter Rene Magritte](_COPY18@alarconr22.arte/catrina-magritte-ilustracion-tradicional-al-estilo-del-pintor-surrealista-rene-magritte)

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQme2gakD94o5isKsQMgbMh9ffyanY6yeNZ1aiST2jz6aCa/image.png)

Alarcón is for me a consecrated artist, in the time that I have known him through several communities of discord he has demonstrated to be a sensitive human being, passionate in each thing that he does and undertakes. I have also known him a little bit in his father’s facet, he fought a lot to go to Mexico where he works and at the same time takes his career as a painter, after his first artistic exhibition last year he was able to take his family with him, he always told us that this was the only thing he needed to be calm and happy. For me those actions are what make me think that he is a good father, husband and friend.

He is always happy, we can find him in all the channels giving the good morning, good profit or a nice message of good afternoon, I believe that he has the gift to cheer up the spirit of the people just by talking. An activity without alarcon is not the same, you always need his jokes.

But do not think that everything is a joke, he has also been a teacher for me and for many people. Since I came to steemit I liked the way he guided us, corrected us and encouraged us to keep going. I am very grateful to him for all his support. Never change and God bless you, my friend!

I would like this contest to be repeated over and over again so that we can continue to name many people, angels that you have the joy of getting in your way. To all of them, thank you for existing.
