Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.
Let not your love become attachment, nor your hate become destruction.
Umar ibn al-khattab {Radi’Allahu anhu} (via hear-the-heartbeat)

Aren’t you something, an original, cause it doesn’t seem merely assembled.
And I can’t help but stare, cause I see truth somewhere in your eyes.
I can’t ever change without you.
You reflect me, I love that about you. 
And if I could, I would look at us all the time.

I must say a word about fear. It is life’s only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unnerving ease. It begins in your mind, always. So you must fight hard to express it. You must fight hard to shine the light of words upon it. Because if you don’t, if your fear becomes a wordless darkness that you avoid, perhaps even manage to forget, you open yourself to further attacks of fear because you never truly fought the opponent who defeated you.
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Catch My Breath

Addicted to the love I found,
Heavy heart, now a weightless cloud.
Making time for the ones that count.
I’ll spend the rest of my time,
Laughing hard with the windows down.
Leaving footprints all over town,
Keeping faith, karma comes around.
I will spent the rest of my life,

Catching my breath, letting it go,
Turning my cheek for the sake of the show.

Now that you know, this is my life,
I won’t be told what’s supposed to be right.
Catch my breath,
No one can hold me back,
I ain’t got time for that.

Catch my breath,
Won’t let them get me down,
It’s all so simple now.


You helped me see,
The beauty in everything.

BLOG #33 - How Not What

I don’t care what you do
It’s how you do it.

I don’t care what you say,
It’s how you say it. 

I don’t care what you see,
It’s how you see it. 

I don’t care what you hear,
It’s how you heard it. 

It’s not what, it’s how. 
And it’s not easy.

They all want to change what you see and how you see it. 
But darling, you can’t be afraid to go out there and see it for yourself. 

BLOG #32 - The Game

The sickest of all mind games. The theft of all the players.
With such a wide spread of people, how are you ever to know? 

All games have pattern. All games have strategies. 
At least the ones that keep people in it.

Me? I choose not to participate.
But I observe and have fallen in, as a piece on the board.

It’s a game where you can cheat and steal.
With a possibility of never getting caught. 

You just simply, maintain a pattern and have a strategy.
And most importantly, never forget it. 

Because it’s a game called, lying.
It tests your creative, manipulative and confident ability.

Don’t get caught up in your own game.
Cause well, that’s game over.

So, how good do you think you are?
