Writing From The Heart

Too often we let fear rule our lives. Fear of not being enough, fear of not being liked or worse; the fear of not being authentic. Authenticity is key. I'm finding my feet again and writing from the heart.

True Enlightenment & Love

For most of our lives we have been made to believe that we can only find true inner happiness through a relationship with a lover.

“Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.” — Eckhart Tolle

Not so long ago, you would have caught me saying 'I am terrified of dying'. Terrified of losing others.

I'd often find myself asking a lot of questions: What if I never find true happiness? … Continue reading “Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.” — Eckhart Tolle

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.”

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf”

Just like the sea, inspiration drifts in waves. There are times when the tide creeps in unexpectedly, slowly but surely lapping at the dry sand, building up a momentum with steady flow. On those days we see progression, ideas flowing in a natural manner, gracefully towards us, the potential washing around our ankles. We take our pick, segregate … Continue reading “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf”

‘I can’t tell you the key to success, but they key to failure is trying to please everyone’

We continually seek acceptance from everybody other than ourselves. 'Care about what other people think and you'll always be their prisoner' If we do not begin with self-acceptance then we sure won't end with it. If we cannot see our true worth, respect our core values and live accordingly, then we are bound to fail.

‘Happiness is not something that you postpone for the future, it is something you design for the present.’

Happiness is a state of mind. A way of being. It is about our perspective and outlook on life, be that positive or negative. We have a choice to see the beauty or flaws in the everyday, light or darkness in times of struggle or show love or hate towards others. We can either count our blessings or our problems, express gratitude for what we do have or mourn for what we do not. We can accept the present or fight it.

‘Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer’

Travel makes us richer as beings. It grants us wealth that is immeasurable on a materialistic scale. It nourishes our souls and enriches our lives with experience that forces our minds to expand and grow.

‘A True Soul Mate Is A Mirror’

'People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.'  It's true, society has led us to … Continue reading ‘A True Soul Mate Is A Mirror’
