The Difference Between Then and Now

Its always hard to sum up how much you have grown, or how far you’ve come over the past year in words. Think about it – By now, you’ve learned so much more about yourself. The things that matter the most to you. Those that make you happy. Where your passion lies, And what your next goal is. You seem to have it somewhat figured out already. You have a new plan. A new vision. And you’re ready to do whatever it takes to turn that into reality. So you start to take a mental note. Scribble on your board. … Continue reading The Difference Between Then and Now

The Mad Run

Let’s face it – We’re constantly running. Either toward something that we just need to achieve, Or away, from everything that scares us. It’s the unfamiliar things that make us think. That keep us awake for hours. That drive us to make new plans as we try to predict what they can lead to.   We wonder why we ran into them in the first place. Trying to use reason to help silence the questions in our head. I mean, of course, there has to be one. Because isn’t that how destiny works?   But that’s not the hard part. … Continue reading The Mad Run

The Butterfly that Danced Under the Sun

The butterfly was afraid to spread its wings for the first time, For it had long forgotten what freedom felt like. Wrapped in a cocoon and hanging for what seemed like forever. Counting the days till it would be strong enough, to break the walls that held it back. From the world that was full of light. But now that the time had come, It thought twice about revealing its wings that were a royal blue. Thinking about how it would be admired by all those that set their eyes on it. Being held in different hands, even though All … Continue reading The Butterfly that Danced Under the Sun

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

Admit it, Your’e Afraid

Aren’t we all a little afraid of admitting the truth?   Maybe we have no idea why we are doing what we are doing. Maybe we should have said what was on our mind. Maybe the second option should have been our first. Maybe we should start over. Maybe tomorrow won’t be the way we pictured it to be. We think about it all the time. All this stuff. And it keeps us awake. It makes us spend hours trying to gaze into the future. Trying to make sense of the uncertainty. Trying to eliminate the risk. Trying to draw … Continue reading Admit it, Your’e Afraid

Say Yes.

  If only we were able to fast forward things and see how they would turn out to be sometimes, decisions would be so much easier. After all, it’s hard to deal with the fear of the unknown. More so, overcome it. They say it’s always amazing when you reach the other side, that everything great lies there. So the question is, are you willing to take the leap? To move forward knowing that things will never be perfect? Do you believe enough to hold onto faith as tightly as you can? Because the truth is, that tomorrow’s always going … Continue reading Say Yes.

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

Meant to be?

  We work so hard to make sure that they are part of our life – those things that matter the most. Then why is it that they are the first ones that we forget about, or choose to let go of when things get tough? As time passes, or as we move on from one leap of faith to another, memories are built.Moments are captured and framed on our favorite wall. But then, reality happens. Fear starts to exist- The constant thought that we may not be able to live up to expectations. Or that we may not be capable … Continue reading Meant to be?
