So you plan for something and it seems like there is lots of time until the moment you have waited for. There is anticipation, anxiety and some expectation. But nothing happens the way you imagine it. Events unfold in ways you never thought it could. You wait and you wait and sometimes you think there is still lots of time to do this and say that. Little did you know, time is passing while you are not paying attention. It’s actually faster than you thought. The moment comes and the moment goes. You only realize it after it had passed. And the wait is finally over. Continue reading
What can you really do when the person you are talking to is not ready to listen. How frustrating this can be. You explain and you simplify and you express yourself in different ways and you pour your heart out, with no result. It’s like you are talking to a wall. Hell, by now the wall would have talked after all this effort. So why is this happening? Continue reading
Some questions we ask; there is no easy answer to. Sometimes it’s the answer we wish we didn’t know. The answers we find were in the question from the start. One thing for sure, you must seek what you are looking for. Whether the answer is good or not for you. And so Shakespeare asked one of the biggest questions of all time: “to be or not to be”. A question with many possible answers yet I know none. And today I ask a much simpler question: “Stay or walk away”. Continue reading

That’s pretty much the reaction you will get from the people close to you, whether it be family members or close friends, whether it be male or female. And your response to that will most likely be: “don’t worry, I know what I am doing.” Then time passes and you get to understand that one: you didn’t really know what you were getting yourself into, and two: Continue reading
Once again I am confronted by the reality that ‘Life is so short’. Yes, it is. Life is short when it gets taken away without you being prepared. Then again, how can you ever be prepared for something like that. Every minute that passes does not come back – ever. So it would be wise for us to watch what we say and what we do because you can never take it back. Sadly, we live as if we can have many do-overs, little do we know that before we know it; we are running out of life. Continue reading
I wake up once again by some lady’s voice yelling and laughing, just a little before dawn and once again I can’t fall back to sleep. As I listen to unfamiliar sounds of the night. From cock-crow to insects drone to birds chirping followed by a little of residential traffic with occasional motorbike passing. I hear all this and I wonder, why did I have to wake up now. I wanted to sleep some more. My alarm still had couple of hours and I need to sleep well for the day I planned ahead. But what can I say, the more I struggle to go back to sleep, the more I awaken. So I allowed some more crazy thoughts to take over my mind and here I am writing them. Continue reading
We live day by day in constant hurry. We are usually late to do something or go somewhere. We are usually stuck in traffic whether you are driving or being a passenger. Everyone is on the road. Everyone needs to be somewhere – NOW!! We are constantly rushing, we are constantly doing things quickly. Sometimes we do not even enjoy Continue reading

If you think this is too good to be true, it probably is. Follow your instinct. You are right in what you feel. However, there is a fine line between being realistic and pessimistic. Whether it is too good to be true or Continue reading
I am certain we have all wondered at some point in our lives: what is the greatest gift anyone can give us. We all have different views on life, different needs, different things that make us happy. But that’s what we all want in the end is to be happy.
“Nothing lasts forever and we both know hearts can change … lovers always come and lovers always go and no one’s really sure who’s letting go today”: quotes from a song named: November Rain by Guns N Roses. A song I have been introduced to some years back. This song has such powerful words and powerful messages to go along with them. Continue reading
You will understand why I chose this title as you read more of the article.
What a very serious topic!! One that we all have talked about at some point in our lives. One that we experience from birth till the day we die. Trust is part of our daily lives. It can make us or it can break us. Trust at the end of the day is a choice. As much as it is a feeling, it is also a thought. Whether we trust or do not trust – it is up to us how we want to live our lives.
Here is a question for you: What is trust?? Continue reading
I start my topic today by saying – I am back in action. As I mentioned, I was embarking on a new journey. And now that I have lived almost two months of it, I am ready to share my thoughts and feelings with you again.
