Why I Always Cry at Weddings, The Power of Love. #royalwedding

Some people express their happiness through smile, some through jumping up and down or laughter. Another group of people holds it inside or gets “butterflies”.

When I am happy – I cry. A lot.

I cried when  I got accepted to the University, I cried when I graduated from high school, I cried when my brother told me he is going to UCSD, I cried when m friend told me she has a boyfriend, I cried when my friend asked me to be her Made of Honor, I cried today watching the Royal Wedding.

Why? Tears clear soul, bring out every emotion.

When I was watching the Royal Wedding I felt as if my entire body was filled with happiness, joy and gratitude that this day is still so special to human beings.

There is something so magical about two people being in love, looking into each others eyes and saying that they will be there for one another “until death do us apart.”

 Love brings us together and this special day shows the peak of it.

I cried a lot when I was watching the Royal Wedding but those were the tears of enormous happiness and hope that one day I will be able to love as much as they do and start my own family 🙂

I really want to make my part of the blog short to leave you with this beyond beautiful and powerful quote from the Sermon by Most Rev. Michael Curry, that he gave during the Royal Wedding today :

“Think and imagine a world when love is the way. Imagine our homes and families when love is the way. Imagine neighborhoods and communities when love is the way. Imagine governments and nations when love is the way. Imagine business and commerce when love is the way. Imagine this tired, old world when love is the way. When love is the way—unselfish, sacrificial, redemptive—then no child will go to bed hungry in this world ever again. When love is the way, we will let justice roll down like a mighty stream and righteousness like an ever-flowing brook. When love is the way, poverty will become history. When love is the way, the Earth will be a sanctuary. When love is the way, we will lay down our swords and shields down by the riverside to study war no more. When love is the way, there is plenty of good room for all of God’s children. Because when love is the way, we actually treat each other like we are actually family.” – The Most Rev. Michael Curry.

I got to interview my favorite YouTuber!

12:55 – “ok, ok. 5 more minutes. I got this”

12:57 -” I’m so nervous. Maybe I should eat ice cream, that will calm me down..”

12:58 – “No no bad idea. Just sit where you are”

12:59 – “I need to drink water or I will pass out”

1:00 pm – “Oh Gosh.. It’s time”

I am taking a class called professional development seminar. One of our projects was to interview someone we look up to, our mentor. For the longest time, I couldn’t think of anyone. Then one day I stumbled upon this lovely lady… 🙂

My first thought was – no, she will never respond to me. Why bother, she has so many things on her mind.

Well… the need to ask her questions and get to know her was too strong:) I emailed her, but to be very honest, did not expect any response. The next day, I woke up to her positive email saying she would love to Skype call with me! I couldn’t believe it!!!

Jola Szymańska is a journalist, blogger, YouTuber and a happy wife 🙂 In her blog and YouTube she talks about things that bother her, topics she is passionate about, very often  what we call “controversial”. That is what drawn me to her. Honesty, positive vibe, strong believes and huge amount of knowledge she has in each topic she writes or talks about.

The best part of this story is that I found out about Jola and her YouTube channel 2 weeks ago. It took 15 minutes (or even less then that) to fall in love with her. The way she approaches life, her vision and mission is completely different from anything I have ever seen and experienced before.

“I started to write my blog because I wanted to give myself a space of freedom”

To me Jola is much more than just a YouTuber that I like to watch. She became a mentor and someone I look up to.

“I had a huge need to create.” 

When she started she did not even own a laptop where she could edit her videos. She had to borrow one from her friends. All her early recordings were done using her smartphone (keep in mind that it was a few years ago). That is crazy to me.

So many times all we do is find excuses not to do something, even if we want to. There will be obstacles in our life every time. It depends only on us if we choose to keep complaining about them or embrace them and do what we love and want.

Jola proves me that you can do it if you only want to. It is a process. She didn’t become a famous blogger and YouTuber in a few months.

Watching her progress and how much she has changed over the years in her brand, channel etc. is absolutely incredible.

The best part is the fact that she is just a normal, happy and super positive person. Down on earth, so not “fancy and famous”. 🙂

I am so glad I got to talk to her. It is incredible how one conversation can be absolutely life changing.

Above all of that, I feel like I gained a life long friend! 🙂

There is so much magic happening around us. Listen listen listen to one another! Have conversations with each other.

Human beings are so intriguing. Open yourself up for love and people and it will come to you!

Jolu – thank you once again for your time and wisdom! You are absolutely exceptional!:)

Love,
