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!

There is a thing about this blog. I am not sure exactly what it is, but I am not ready to let go. It could be that it reminds me there is one thing I have been successful at. If this is what you can call successful. Without the judgment about its quality or quantity, I am going to enjoy a smug moment. 5 years and counting. Yeah baby!

It is time for a few changes. I have been struggling to make those changes. Even accept that I have to make them. Denial can be a big deterrent in progress.  Time comes when the strongest of compulsions for denial have to be acknowledged. The freedom felt thereafter is sweet. You know what I am talking about.

Today I have no idea what I was talking about then. That is the sad truth about those moments. They pass. I wish I would do better about my thoughts.. Going back to publishing my unfinished posts..

This evening!

It is about hugs and friendship. Food and laughter. Tears and memories. It is about promises kept and prayers answered. It is about uniting the known, and bringing together the unknown.

I am very excited about this evening!
