Hey all of you wonderful people!
I’m Sofia and I love living my life with passion. Greeks have a very special word for those who genuinely love what they do and they do it with passion. It’s called “meraki”.
“meraki [may-rah-kee] (adjective) This is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be.”
My desire has always been to experience all the things I truly love, but I didn’t always have what it takes. It really takes courage to live life with passion and just let yourself put a piece of your soul in every single thing you do. Dedicating myself so deeply into what I believe I can achieve it’s been a journey of personal commitment to being truly in line with who I am without fear. The reward? Not only manifesting a life I love living, but mostly an expansive creative energy, personal growth, originality and freedom.
Although, I’ve been on a self-discovery journey most of my life (as we do), it was only after 2012 when I put faith in the unknown to pursue true happiness and distance myself from a reality that didn’t serve me. I said goodbye to conventional life and I was ready to discover my true potential.
There was a turning point into my life that I had no space for average situations, feelings and people. No more compromise, doubt and loss of direction. I knew that I could create something far better for my life and I wouldn’t settle for less anymore! I was determined to do what I love, and when this greater vision was born in my mind, there was no way back.
It was time to take on the adventure of following my dreams no matter what it takes. I’m quiet convinced now that I just live life for the adventure of it; for discovering more of who I am. It’s the risks you are willing to take that create greatness within you. I always loved the challenge to face my fears, and stepping out of my comfort zone was in the end what gave me the freedom to create the life I want.
So here I am now, 5 years later, sharing my love for life with you! Being that fitness model, personal trainer and digital influencer, who inspires thousands of people to follow their dreams! (Feeling so blessed for that!)
The journey is not always easy, but it was definitely worth every moment of fear, doubt and tears. Many times I’ve been asked if I would start all over again if I had to, and without doubt my answer is HELL YEAH! I know this well, because I had to overcome obstacles not once. Over the past few years, I’ve been tested a lot in all aspects of my life, but I would proudly say that despite the challenges I stood my ground and I proved to myself that I am strong. Every situation I faced made me a new person, ready to explore life’s countless possibilities. It’s amazing to see how far you can go!
When I first left Greece to start my new life, I only had an idea, but not a plan. I only had faith. I traveled and I ended up to Australia where I started a new life and career which I, literally, built out of nothing. Out of nothing I created something that is an intricate part of who I am.
Today, one of the biggest lessons I have learned is that when you genuinely love what you do, it won’t fail you! If you get disappointed along the way, you won’t quit. There is no second guessing about it, you’ll find a way to make it happen. Your will to create and bring life to your vision is stronger than you can fathom. It’s who you are and all you want. Nothing can stop you. There is no room for fear, no need for validation or approval. It’s a process of learning how to be uniquely you and expressing it without hesitation.
This blog is about everything I’m passionate about! You’ll discover more about my life, what I love and how I perceive the world. I hope you’ll find inspiration through my stories. I hope I’ll put a little bit of spark in your dreams and shift your perspective, because life is meant to be lived the way we want it!
I’d like to truly thank you for all of your messages, encouragement and interest throughout the years. I can’t thank you enough for your daily support. It really puts a big smile on my face and makes my vision grow stronger.
I send my love to all the special people who supported my journey to date in a personal and professional level.
Live life with passion,
