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…

Can you trust the water?

Written on July 23, 2015 It has been a few years since I made the decision to learn swimming. Few years ago, I had started taking swimming lessons and found myself going absolutely nowhere with it. Looking back though, I have come very very far. Long long time ago, the thought of water had scared me. “The waves will come and take you with them” is what the voice in my head would say. “You will drown and die. Just like that.” But I had always watched people swim. They always looked so cool. Ever since I was little, I…

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…

My Summer Love – Drunk on Your Music

Recently, I went through a small heart-attack situation. Suddenly, I found my credit card not working at the grocery store. I came home thinking may be I just forgot to pay my bill and they temporarily de-activated it. I checked my account and found a very expensive transaction made through my credit card the day before. The card had been in my purse all the time and was still in my hand but clearly, someone in this world had used it somehow. I was blown away. How could thousands of dollars be charge to my account when the card is…

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…

Scary Cold Winters

In response to Your Personality on the Page One of my biggest fears in life is to be left alone outside in the deep cold and have no home to go to. I can imagine myself wandering in the cold with pounds and pounds of clothing in which I find it really hard to walk. Yet, there is no other option. To be in the middle of the world roaming around like a dot as seen from a far far planet. To be alone in a land of all white to the distance where white meets the sky. The cold…
