Thought-pourri

There is a certain pleasure in telling the detractors “watch me”.

It is easier to give up, much harder to keep going. Reminding yourself why you even started may help.

I judge, so do you. That is the only we process the information we get and react to our circumstances.

Letting go is hard. It is not the thing that we are letting go, but the person we are because of this thing that we will miss the most.

We don’t always have to let go. No one can take away our memories from us.

It will only get better

I don’t want to say good bye to 2015, but it isn’t staying is it now? It hasn’t been the most productive or ground breaking year I have had but it helped me grow a lot. For all the lessons I have learned, for the personal growth I have had, the people I met and the people I hope to meet some day, 2015 was a beautiful year.

Here is to 2016! Happy New Year everyone!

In the ideal world…

If I could have one day or even a moment, in which you could indulge in me, with no consequences to my words or actions, just pure exchange of words, feelings and thoughts, then perhaps we could stop with the blame game, forgotten past, unsaid words and unwritten stories.

In the ideal world we would still be friends. The kinds that chatted for hours, in spite of months or even years of silence, between whom it was okay to let our guard down and admit our love for each other. We don’t acquire each other, we chose each other which makes this a unique bond.

No, this post is not in any retaliation, so wipe off that smirk from your face. I will admit though that you too are a part of this hope that I hold for so many.

In the ideal world, I would not have to hope this hope..

One day down, 364 days to go.

Every day is the first day for the rest of your life. Everyday is an opportunity to let go of the past. Everyday you can embrace the future. Everyday is a new beginning.

Yet, something about the change in year has an energy about itself. Time to make some more resolutions and hold myself accountable. Last year proved to be good. So here we are again!

1. Health: Of the body and mind.

2. Attitude: Adjustment, reconsideration, realignment

3. Society: Get real.

4. Discipline: Body, mind and soul.

5. Priorities: Me me me and me.

No need to elaborate at this time. Time will tell and hopefully you will know. Here is wishing you all a very Happy New Year, and looking forward to conversations and more in the coming months.

So long 2014!

I have another 8 days of vacation left. I’m really looking forward to it. I have so much to share and so much to talk about! I hope I will get to it in time. The next few days I will remain incommunicado due to lack of means and a small lack of will. I want to let the mind free for a bit.

I don’t plan to be gone too long, but it might take me while to get back. Thank you for all the follows. Thank you for comments and emails and support and kindness.

Hope to keep the conversation going. See you in 2015 if not sooner.

Fear of Success

People always talk about fear of failure. One of the most potent inhibitors of action.

Oh lets make this sound positive. One of the most potent motivators of inaction.

Has anybody ever considered the fear of success?

I strongly believe it exists.

My world this week

1. Two days too late already. It would have been a happy update had it not been for the last two days but then life is a mix of good and bad.

2. I have said it before and I will say it again shit happens to the best of us. It takes a lot more courage to accept shit happened and you need to move on vs making the shit work. It really doesn’t.

3. Don’t cry for help. Seek help. Big difference.

4. First step towards travel plans are already in motion. I am one happy person.

5. There is a fire in my belly for travel, language and research. Oh yeah!
