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
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
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.
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
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
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?
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
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
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
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.
