JADEITABONITA

(Spanish for: beautiful jadeite / a beautiful green gemstone)


I used to dream I'd be an artist, make beautiful paintings and write stories for people. That was my childhood dream, and I dreamed I'd make a living with it, that I could pour all my heart and soul to it. I wasn't very good at school, it didn't interest me, instead of doing homework I would draw comics and write stories on my notebooks. But then at some point my mom told me I wouldn't be able to live off art, that I had to be realistic and study to get a real job. She told me this again and again until I started to believe her. I started to believe I wasn't good enough, that my art wasn't going to be liked, that no one would actually buy it and I wouldn't be able to support myself with it. I thought it was a childish dream and that it would never work out, so I stopped making art and started to panic. I was still horrible at school and on top of that developed a soul level depression, afraid of not making it because throughout the years I found out nothing really sparked joy in me the same way as creating something out of my imagination.


So here I am at 21 years old with no money and still kinda lost because I couldn't fit myself in any box. After I graduated from school (which was a miracle) I went from job to job but nothing really felt mine. It felt just like school, obligated, boring. Then at some point thanks to some really hard inner work and some really loving and supporting friends and lovers, I found myself thinking again, why not? Why not at least try it? Pour all my heart and soul to what I do best, and see if it works. Just writing this already feels like I'm fulfilling my destiny. 


This is my dream, this is my shot in the dark. I'm barely someone, not many people know me, but I hope to touch a lot of hearts through my art and stories and take you with me to my universe, so you can feel the things I've felt, live the stories I've lived and imagine the things I've imagined. I hope my experiences help you, that you find some inspiration, answers, or simply feel that you're not alone. We're in this crazy thing called life, together.

So... will you come with me?

Thank you, thank you, thank you! You will not only see the cute dog pics, but will get access to my "personal journal", my thoughts about anything between this earth and the heavens, similar to my instagram posts, but longer and more personal. You'll get to know me on a deeper level. New posts every week!

On top of the cute dog pics and my personal journal, you'll get access to my untold stories, the ones that I never had the courage to write and publish. Some are fictive, some are based on dreams and some on true events in my life, but I won't tell you which is what ;) New story / chapter every month!
