"I am on a journey... With my work, my explorations, and a few sad stories. I travel with a suitcase full of outrageous blessings. I am on a quest for truth, beauty, and quiet joy. I am an artist, a writer, an explorer."

I'm Back

And I'm back; back in St Andrews but also back to blog-writing. It's been a while - 25 days to be precise - and oh so many things can happen in such little time! Doors close, new ones open; people walk in and out of your life; life happens. Everything happens for the best :)

Time flies when you're enjoying yourself! I was free and carefree...and FREE. I realised, yet again, that amazing things can happen once you get out of that comfort zone. Life is full of little miracles, you won't regret it; surprise yourself! The past weeks seem like a distant, blissful dream; like those dreams you never want to wake up from, the ones which suddenly end and plunge you back into reality. 

It was about time though, I guess; let's get this semester over with! I'm ready.

New Year

I came across this last night. I think it perfectly captures everything I would want to wish to anyone - and myself included - for this new year; I couldn't have rephrased it better. A new year always brings with it a chance to make a new start, a brand new beginning. It may not feel like it yet; after all, 2013 was only yesterday, but we could start by thinking about some new year's resolutions and making some effort to keep them this time.

'Today is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.'

Let go of everything and anyone that makes you unhappy, that doesn't serve you in any way. Try to forgive the ones who have done you wrong and move on, they don't deserve your time. Learn to accept what is; surrender to the moment, even if it's not a pleasant one. Acceptance is hard but it frees us of a huge burden. There is no reason for resistance, just let it be. Always remember that when one door closes, another one opens.

Let your soul shine!

Trust in your heart. 
Be brave. 
Have courage. 
Be fearless. 
Be true to yourself. 
Embrace simplicity.
Create a life you love.

Never stop dreaming and never let go of hope
Believe in miracles :)

* Happy New Year 2014 *
