The next step: Travel as a way of life?

I have been wondering for a long time what is it that I am not doing. There was a time when everything had started feeling boring. So I had dropped it all. Because nothing brought me comfort or satisfaction. Everything felt just extremely boring. I don’t think it’s a feeling I can really describe fully. You are unable to concentrate on anything because nothing brings you joy. And joy is a bit of an over statement. When nothing can even make you smile or laugh. You are in another world. A world you do not choose for yourself but a…

YOU ARE STRONG!!!

There are many types of times. Some might just break them down into good and bad. I haven’t really written for my blog in a really long time. I don’t know what to write either. Few days ago I looked at my WordPress Reader after a long time. Reader is the place you see articles from blogs you follow. Some are seeing the arrival of Spring and some are sighing about the arrival of Autumn in their lives. We are all in the same world in completely different seasons at the same time. Winter has been great. We had a few…

New Year, Old Beginnings

2017 is here a lil’ too early. I am not really getting the NEW feeling yet. As you know, I always set a vision for a new year. Last year my goal was to DARE as much as possible. I did that so well that I broke a wall as strong as The Great Wall of China within me. The struggle continues and I am breaking more and more of these walls. The unfortunate part of this story is that because these walls are within you, you are breaking yourself at the same time as you are making yourself. There’s…

You are protected

The lives we have lived will define the lives we create for others. So, live well. I have been trying to finish reading Justin Trudeau’s (Canada’s prime minister) biography for almost 2 months and as with all my reading projects, this one remains unfinished. I wanted to read his biography to familiarize myself with the person he is, the experiences that have shaped him and his vision for Canada. I thought that as a responsible citizen of this country, I should know what kind of person he is and what kind of life he has lead. I felt it was…

You don’t have to fear anything

One day I came to a realization that opened my eyes much wider than normal. It enlightened me to an understanding that I could never reach before: You don’t ever have to fear anything. In general, I avoided people who had hurt me or others because quite honestly, I never wanted to see them ever again. It made me upset and angry to see that in this world existed those who shamelessly deceived and hurt others as if it was their hobby. The thought of them disgusted me so I avoided them with all my might so that I would…

God never chooses the wrong path for you

Sometimes it’s very difficult to remember that God never chooses the wrong path for us. When we start feeling that we are losing something, we forget that God has better plans for us.  However, we don’t know what that plan is yet and that uncertainty creates doubts and fears in our minds. In those moments, we need to put a stop sign in front of our mind and tell it that it is wrong. That it is wrong in believing that things are not going well. That we really aren’t at loss at all. That something beautiful is unfolding in…

Love is Forever

I often say that love is forever. It is not something I think about or question; it is something that comes right out of my heart with so much determination that it breaks through every single doubt. Love is forever….But what makes me so sure, so certain? Million relationships make and break every single day in different parts of the world, how is it that I believe that love is forever? How is it possible for love to be forever? Contrary to the popular belief that in order to have love, you must have people around you, I feel that…

The Embarkment

Hi subscribers, It’s been a while. I have been away for a long time and will probably continue to be. It is because my Summer has begun. At least in my mind, it has. It began a while ago with a difficult decision to head to California with a friend I hadn’t seen in years. I contacted her a month before and she simply said, “Let’s do it! Let’s go!” After much thinking, we booked our flights and decided to take care of the rest later. It was something I wanted to do for a long time and even though…

Life Changes Us

I find that life changes us in unexpected ways. We don’t always see it coming. We don’t always realize that we have changed either. But we do. Unknowingly, unexpectedly, life changes us. Suddenly, we fear. Suddenly, we start worrying – about every single thing that has happened, could happen and is happening. The way we see the world changes completely. Suddenly, we become a completely different person. We forget to laugh, to believe. Life changes us. It’s not our fault. It really isn’t. So, do yourself a favour: when life gets difficult, don’t let it change you in a negative…
