To fear failure is something that is universal.
It is something that I long to escape from.
But its there, its looming, like a rain cloud
Dimming even the brightest of days.
People tell me that I should not dwell
On the things that I can’t change.
They tell me that it’s in the past.
But is it really?
But I must thank you failure. Continue reading
You are here, you are there, you are everywhere
You are the grass, the stars, the air
When I’m with you the whole world swings
Impossible things become possible, as the caged bird sings
But our plane is bound to fall
And you will leave me, without a trace or call
As it gets dark, in the shadowy abyss
Please remember this
A face, a laugh, a smile
As you fly away for miles and miles
Spring cleaning is probably one of my most hated phrases/time of the year. The fact that the dust starts flying everywhere, having to throw out the old objects, and the countless hours spent trying to reorganize everything… its all too much of a hassle. But as I was sorting out my closet, I came across an old, and rather faded cardboard box that was long left forgotten. Inside, to my great surprise, were exactly ten colorful storybooks written by the one and only, Dr. Seuss. Continue reading
I’ve always had an extreme fascination for photography. The fact that a photo can hold so many indescribable emotions with the simple click of a camera….it’s amazing. A photograph is capable of preserving memories, highlighting the smallest details- light, colors, everything.
Roads, in particular, have always been a object of fascination for me. I don’t really know why. Perhaps a road to me is a journey, an adventure, a place just waiting to be explored. There are so many things out there that I have yet to experience. But I have to admit that the fear holds me back.
Because a road is uncertainty. Continue reading
It’s never easy being a girl. I mean we have to wait in ridiculously long bathroom lines, suffer from major cramps, and worry about fashion mishaps 24/7. Hopefully these 10 life hacks will get you through those big “oh no” moments in life. Cause, you know, we all have them.
Nothing in nature lives for itself. The river doesn’t drink it’s own water. The tree doesn’t consume it’s own fruit. The flowers don’t spread fragrance for themselves. Living for others is the rule of nature.
It was always my grandfather that uttered these words late at night. It was his form of a bedtime story. Being a young and ignorant child, I didn’t understand the meaning of these words nor did I care for them. Because the “great outdoors” to me seemed like a scary place. I was afraid to walk alone, afraid of being lost. I would’ve much rather spend time inside the comfort of my home banging on pots and pans and inventing games of all sorts than stepping out into the “foreign” world.
Because nature is unpredictable. It is the one thing that man can’t control. And I think that was what scared me the most. The fear of the unknown. But that is exactly what makes it beautiful.
The human spirit needs a place where the world has not been rearranged by human hands. That is the trees, the flowers, the ground. It is the still silence of nature where one will find true bliss.
