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…

Words Are Powerful

Think about it, in many aspects of life words are powerful (almost too powerful). Words can be put together to make up your favourite story, to drive inspiration, to tell the world about heartache, to drive people towards the same goal. Words have a lot of power, and it’s how you use them that counts….

It’s All About Perspective

Perspective plays a vital role in our lives. How you look at a situation shapes the way you view life, shapes your feelings towards an experience and how you’ll remember it. Just like in a photograph, perspective completely changes the mood of a picture and how that moment will be remembered in history. You can…

Pride – Love for All

Today is Pride day in London, the day of the parade. Pride is a day of love and acceptance. A day of unity. Pride was born out of the need to create an equal world where everyone can love each other without fear of discrimination or persecution. It’s a day to make others realise that…
