I have been tinkering with photography lately and love inspirational quotes, hence the birth of this post marrying both. It has been an eventful year for us and taught us not to take each other and life for granted. Life goes on regardless of what happened around us, so prioritize and live… Read More

Your task, as a human being, is not self-augmentation, but self-discovery. Look at yourself with curiosity. Let yourself explore your interests. Delve into your talents. Face your fears. Accept your faults, and give yourself unconditional love.

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.― T.S. Eliot A few years back I was stuck in a rut and needed a change of pace in my life.

Sometimes you have to disconnect to stay connected. ~Regina Brett At this day and age, our daily lives consist of everything electronics and online. Computers, laptops, smartphones, video games, social media connections etc. With all the sensory overloads, there comes a time when enough is enough.

“Unless we take that first step into the unknown, we will never know our own potential!” ― Allan Rufus, The Master’s Sacred Knowledge Since the beginning of 2018, I have been more active physically and pushing myself to try new things that I have always wanted to do but had managed to find all the reasons in the world to not do. Growing up I was not particularly athletic and I always wished that I… Read More

All those hours exploring the great outdoors made me more resilient and confident. ~ David Suzuki After a couple of weeks of rainy and gloomy days, we finally saw the sun this weekend.  It was a little warmer than usual, at least for me a two to three layers of clothing day is a warm day in winter. We decided to head out and soak up some much-needed Vitamin D from the… Read More

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something. ~Neil Gaiman Unlike the past holiday seasons, we teamed up with friends and decided to embark on a different version of celebration for this… Read More
