people in our lives...

"Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be - but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will affect your life in some profound way."

Things I learnt this week


People who live only for dessert, very rarely enjoy the main course. And sometimes a meal... is like life. Bon app├ętit! (tut)

a sunday thought


Once you can ride the wave of desire, it runs its course and subsides. Then you may discover what is deeper than this pulsing energy. Just as the clear, calm depths of the ocean lie still below the thrashing waves, so the heart's pure longing ...to connect is what underlies our passion - John Welwood

Love

"love is not to be found in someone else, but in our selves; we simply awaken it. but in order to do that, we need the other person. the universe only makes sense when we have someone to share our feelings with."

today is your blank page


In all the times past and in all the times to come, there was and never will be, an exact replica of today.

There will never be another day like today. And there will be another man or woman like you. Because you are as different and unexpected as each day. Think of it...


Each day might be measured by time but it actually made up of moments. And it is moments that colour our days and allow us to be the men and woman we are. Like a blank page, the possibilities are endless.

Today is your blank page.

Today is about making choices and living the outcomes. About taking the initiative. It is the rational and irrational. Celebrating our frailties and facing our fears. It is insight and exploration, energy and passion. It is about independence, originality and strength. Today is about discovering direction and relishing the change, creating the things you want. About desires, the present, the future and opportunity!

That is the essence of today.
That is the essence of being you.
