Kenya: Animals in the Wild

One of the main reasons for going to Kenya was to be in the presence of its wildlife, to see in person the animals that, at home, I had only before seen on TV or in the Zoo. I could never imagine what it would actually be like. We started by leaving Nairobi early in…

Kenya: A Trip to Another World

Recently, an opportunity was presented to me: the chance to see the other side of the world, something I had never done before. I’ve always wanted to travel more, visit new places, try new food, enjoy new music, be in the presence of different cultures and see new sights. I’d never imagined the first opportunity…

Choosing Happiness… is Hard!

Sometimes you have those “back to reality” moments, where it just feels like the veil of happiness you’ve been putting up for months suddenly comes down and you’re able to see life for what it truly is: unstable. Choosing happiness is easy when nothing is going wrong. When it’s sunny outside, the birds are chirping,…

Recharging My Batteries

We all get worned out. We all go through periods in life where we’re completely out of energy, feel exhausted all the time, anxiety is high, creativity is low, etc. We all go through phases when it feels like we absolutely need to recharge our batteries and get back to our full potential. I’ve recently…

It’s Peaceful Underwater

The world can be a loud place. Gravity can be a little too strong some days. Streets can feel limiting at times. That’s why I love swimming. I love diving in the limitless ocean and hearing the muffled up sounds, the quietness surrounding me. I love the sensation of not having to give in to…

Soulmates.

Personally I’m not too sure if I believe in soulmates or not. I believe in certain people who are meant to be a part of your life, people who are here to make a difference and who you connect with instantly. I’ve met very few people throughout my life that have felt like they truly…

Stress as Motivation

Sometimes I like stressful situations because they motivate me to react quicker and think of a solution without procrastinating. Being under pressure can feel very nice sometimes as it pushes you to not only be as productive as possible, but also to find faster ways of completing whatever it is that you need to do…

Unconditional Love

Loving without limitations. Everyone and everything has the right to be loved without judgement. It’s a tricky business opening up your mind and heart to the idea of, in some way, loving everyone despite of their actions – yet, it could make you so much happier in life to not judge everyone else’s actions all…

Me Time

Me time, for me, includes getting to work on my hobbies. It means focusing on tasks that I want to do to the point of it feeling like I have been very productive with my day. I don’t necessarily always need the time to be locked away in my room watching TV, but I need…

Feeling Supported

Sometimes you feel lonely, unloved, lost. Sometimes you feel like anything you’re doing doesn’t matter, it won’t affect the world in the slightest way and you won’t be able to make a change. It feels like everyone else is so preoccupied with their own things that no one cares about what you’ll do. That feeling…
