You're not here to conform. You're here to break the norm. Do not dim your light for others. No one benefits from that. If you really care about the whole, Rise up. Hold your ground. Raise the bar!
One cannot grow anything without knowing how to detach, take a step back - watch from a distance. If one isn't able to do so they can either end up smothering the beloved or going up in flames with them, or both - either leads to destruction. One cannot be too close even to one's… Continue reading An Ode to Detachment
The natural state of things is when things are flowing. When something becomes an obstruction to this flow, it can result to feelings of hurt, confusion and hopelessness.

I find myself looking forward to luxurious breakfasts recently. Aside from the fact that I can finally afford them in terms of money, I can finally afford the lovely silence in the mornings, too. In fact, I've been laughing at the fact that if I'll be going on dates now, they'll probably be always at… Continue reading Musings over Breakfasts
I turn 31 today. So what? "What's different about me this year in comparison to who I was last year?", I ask myself. Well, I think I'm pretty much the same. I just think I'm more daring now.
