Secret Conversations

Whatever it is you are seeking, won’t come in the form you are expecting. Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore Every now and then, you come to those crossroads – that fork in the narrow, meandering, unpredictable, forest trail of your being. A walk that began as an aimless journey and a hopeless quest for […]

10 Ways to Feel Inspired

I’ve got a Dream

‘Way down deep inside, I’ve got a dream‘ — sings Rapunzel (in Tangled) with all the thugs, ruffians and thieves who seem to go all warm and fuzzy when she asks them in all her spirited innocence — ‘Don’t any of you have a dream?!‘ Some of us grow up knowing exactly what we want to do […]

A day in the life – making it count

Growth and change are both painful, uncomfortable and sometimes undesirable. But, nothing is more painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong. So start here and now. Start with fear, with wonder, with reservation or without a clue. It’s a beautiful day to start. Even rock bottom is a beautiful start. Just start making it […]
