The Art of Taking the Time

My post for today is simple: take the time to do things. This fits in well with my other posts (such as doing what energizes you, saying yes, saying no, etc.) but I like to think it’s still original. So. I’ve been thinking about the things that I want to do. And maybe you can […]

The Art of Keeping a Blog

What I’ve found is that blogging is easier at the beginning, which I did expect, but I was hoping that as I fell into February, then March, then April, my blog posts would continue to be a decent length and full of wisdom, or something along that line. I don’t know exactly what I was […]

Hearing ‘That’ Song (part 1) / Playlist

The song that reminds you of that time, place, person. I love the way a song can immediately make you remember the first time you heard it, the second time, the fiftieth time. I love how one song can have an upbeat tune, but still make you feel sad because of what it makes you […]

The Art of Losing Contact

To how many people have you said “we’ll always remain friends, no matter where we end up.” At the time, those words mean the world, but six months down the track, you seem to forget the context in which you said them. After moving away from the town I went to high school in, I’ve […]

The Art of Loving First

Carson McCullers once said that “First of all, love is a joint experience between two persons – but the fact it is a joint experience does not mean that it is a similar experience to the two people involved.” This isn’t a blog post about boyfriend/girlfriend, but about love in general, in all our everyday […]

The Art of Saying Yes

I want to say yes to adventures. Yes to going out of my comfort zone. Yes to spontaneity. Yes to saying the words I was always to afraid to speak. Yes to God. I know my thing has been ‘say no if that’s your thing’, but now it’s my time to say yes. So many […]

The Art of Procrastinating

I’ve never really thought about myself as a procrastinator before; I’m usually pretty good at being motivated to get things done and to check another thing off my to-do list. But every now and then, I get in this mood, like I am now, where study is just so unappealing I will do anything to […]

The Art of Loving Cold Beach Days

The day looks cold and unwelcome. Except…today is beach day, and beach days are always awesome when cold! Well, most of the time. Besides the cold part. But we’ll get to that later on. For now, lets see why the beach is so great, even when the sun aint shining. 1/ There is no enforced […]

The Art of Saying No

I don’t know if you remember, but I have a post that I wrote not all that long ago on doing what energises you rather than what exhausts you. Well, it’s time to take my own advice, even though it’s hard. Harder than I thought it would be. Because the thing that I didn’t say […]

The Art of Feeling Content

Today is one of those days. A day where the temperature isn’t too hot, nor too cold, and the workload light. There’s a slight breeze lifting the room, and I have my music on, a favourite playlist of mine that always makes me feel better. I’ve had several good conversations with people, conversations that picked […]
