Fleetingness

For it doesn’t matter how you may feel at one moment, the fleetingness of it all makes it redundant holding on to that feeling forever. For if you are happy, sad, scared, excited, it does not mean that will be your everlasting sentiment. Don’t think, just because you are sad or scared, that you must…

Kenya: Swimming With Dolphins

As I have mentioned before, I truly feel whole when I’m swimming in the ocean. It’s when I feel the most content and free, where I feel like I can let myself go without worries. That’s why I was so excited to go snorkelling for the first time off the coast of Mombasa (around the…

Kenya: Mombasa, A Paradise

After finishing up our Safari in Masai Mara, we headed down to Mombasa. I didn’t just want to experience the big city while in Kenya, but I also wanted to visit somewhere by the ocean for a paradise holiday, to enjoy a little bit of the sun and to remind me a little more of…

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,…

Don’t Let Them Tell You You’re Not Perfect

Them means a lot of different people. Not just strangers, family members, “friends”, or whomever it may be, but also the “voices” in your head. That little voice in the back of your head that keeps trying to convince you you’re anything but perfect, that voice should never be listened to. Because, guess what? Those…

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…

Blue Skies

There’s something quite magical about seeing the sky clear of clouds and baby blue the moment you wake up in the morning. It’s like the universe is telling you that today will have no obstacles, that you’re as free as a bird to do whatever you want. There are no constraints (clouds) keeping you from…

Blessed

Every moment of our lives is blessed. Either that is because we’re living to see another day, or because it’s sunny, or because you had a especially good cup of coffee in the morning – there’s always something you can be grateful for. Today I’m grateful for a sunny day, for amazing friends and family…

Happiness Doesn’t Grow on Trees

Happiness is a weird emotion.* Sometimes we know that everything is right, yet we don’t feel happy, and that makes us wonder what’s wrong with us. You can also be happy one second, very nervous the next, very sad the moment after. And why is that? I feel like a lot of us over-worriers tend…
