Dear Traveller

Dear Traveller, I know you get really tired sometimes. Of all the unexpected destinations that you end up on as you follow your path.You question yourself as you look up at the sky. Or across the ocean. Wherever you are. Sensing the limitlessness of it all. Realizing that you may never know everything, no matter how hard you try. Now I really can’t give you any advice on how to make that possible – after all, it is my essence. My secret formula. It’s what makes me so special. All I can say is be grateful. For the ones you … Continue reading Dear Traveller

How do you feel? That is the question

So yes. I know it took a while. To find an answer to what you had asked me. But that’s only because there wasn’t just one.   “How do you feel now that it’s over?”, that was the question. Honestly, I had no idea what to say back then. Since I had just ended a journey. Or should I say won a battle? It was me against myself. Constantly competing to be better. To absorb all the great things that were going on around me then.   I felt like a ship that had finally reached its destination. After sailing … Continue reading How do you feel? That is the question

Ferris Wheels, Hope And Purple Lights

  From a distance, I admired the view. For I had always dreamt of Ferris wheels. I was fascinated by the way they moved. Slow and gentle. Allowing you to breathe in the depth of the sky.   It was powerful, that rotating wheel. Full of hope. After all, it could stop time. No wonder then, that it was most people’s dream. To sit within those tiny chambers, with the ones that they loved.   Appreciating the little things that life had to offer- Gelato, a chance to take the perfect picture, Or having a second to truly look into … Continue reading Ferris Wheels, Hope And Purple Lights

The Little Girl Dressed in White

A picture of a little girl dressed in white, sitting calmly on a tiny studio chair; with an innocent face, eyes full of curiosity and a faint smile – that’s what the world sees now. But it isn’t the whole story. As she grew up, she was told a secret by her parents – that right before the moment that this picture was clicked, she had fallen. And she had tears in her eyes. Afraid of what had happened. Lying on the ground. Not knowing how to pick herself up. She was one year old after all. And there were … Continue reading The Little Girl Dressed in White

Scars, Battles, Destruction and Beauty

  Every now and then, something will destroy you. Sometimes a little, and sometimes completely. It will test your patience. Push you to the edge. Challenge your strength. Demand your courage. It will question everything that you believe in. And leave you thinking deep. About just how you were able to make all those decisions that made you stand at the place that you are at today. And why you made them. You will break. Or maybe get scarred during the fierce battle between your mind and your heart. As you redefine your limits and push your boundaries. As you … Continue reading Scars, Battles, Destruction and Beauty

You Survived

Step out of the door each day knowing that you can handle whatever it brings. Believe in your journey – look back at how far you’ve come. Be bold enough to make decisions without knowing exactly how they will turn out in the end. They may be far from perfect. But that won’t matter. Because they will be yours. Be honest. Say what’s on your mind more often. Don’t waste time thinking about it.  Because maybe its exactly what someone wants to hear. Listen to your favourite song. Spend time doing something you love. Don’t let your to do list … Continue reading You Survived

Snowflakes in the Sand

Take that chance. Rather take every chance that you can get. At something that you truly want. Don’t let it pass by just because it wasn’t what you asked for. Or because your’e afraid that you won’t be able to win at the end of the day. Because the truth is that you can’t “always”. You can’t always plan. You can’t always succeed. In fact, its just the opposite of all of that. This journey that your’e on.   It was never meant to be painted in black and white. There are no rules. And the only boundaries that exist, … Continue reading Snowflakes in the Sand

It’s Me – Life.

  You’re in that moment – everything becomes clear. You start to see things for what they really are. You realize that what you’ve always truly wanted, has been right in front of you this entire time. And then, the obvious question comes into your head- How did you not see that before?   You start to think. You think a lot. Until you find a reason to blame yourself. You believe that you could’ve done better. That you probably didn’t give it your all. That you didn’t fight hard enough. Or maybe got distracted by something. How could you … Continue reading It’s Me – Life.

Where you Belong

Thinking about it. That’s where it all begins. Right there. In the middle of the night. Your’e wide awake. And no matter what you do – you just can’t stop. There’s this need to find an answer. A need to figure it out. That one thing – Whatever it is. And in that moment you decide. To believe that you know what your’e doing. To have faith in the journey. You spend hours. Days. Weeks. Months. And then there’s that one moment. When everything makes sense. You realize that it was worth it. That you made it through. You find … Continue reading Where you Belong

The Sun Will Rise

And sometimes its just about taking it all in – one breath at a time. Between all the craziness and uncertainty. Between the hope and the fear. Between what seems like the end and a what may be new beginning. Its about sitting back and doing nothing for once. About not trying so hard. About letting it go, even when it feels like it’s worth holding on to. About accepting things as they are. Its about keeping up the fight. Even when you think you don’t have what it takes. Even when it seems like you won’t ever be the … Continue reading The Sun Will Rise
