It goes on.  Leaves fall, birds fly, The sun sets the opposite  Where it rises.
Life is a series of ups and downs, Of mornings and evenings, Hush and breathe, my darling. What time hides, time will reveal.

Every once in a while — often when we least expect it — we encounter someone more courageous, someone who choose to strive for that which (to us) seemed unrealistically unattainable, even elusive. And we marvel. We swoon. We gape. Often , we are in awe. I think we look at these people as lucky, when in fact, luck has nothing to do with it. It is really about the strength of their imagination; it is about how they constructed the possibilities for their Life. In short, unlike me, they didn’t determine what was impossible before it was even possible.

" There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty. "

" I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. "

- Roald Dahl

SUNRISE: Confessions Part 2

I am a morning person. 

I used to think I wasn’t until I started working in the corporate world. What energy and creativity I had during late nights of my college days, I now have on mornings spent reading & replying to emails while eating a breakfast sandwich on my work desk. That’s how multi-tasking and punctual a corporate slave should be.

But today is different. I chose to take a leave and finish my pending projects at home, where I can focus, think clearly and squeeze my creative juices. 

They say creativity has no end. I say, sometimes, creativity takes a halt, and reminds you to take a break, too, as it also needs some replenishment.

" It’s too bad if a heart lacks fire,
and is deprived of the light
of a heart ablaze.
The day on which you are
without passionate love
is the most wasted day of your life.
