"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost."
I don’t remember for sure when this journey of mine started.
I like to believe that maybe it started when I was born – I already had it written on my skin.
I do remember being about 14-15 and wondering what I want to do with my life. And even though I did not had a clear response (I did not had an inclination for maths, performing arts, I was scared of blood and not that good at any technical things), I knew that I will not do anything just because everyone else is doing it. I also knew that I will not do something for the love of money.
I live for the moments that are hard to put into words: glimpses of songs that give me goosebumps; the moments when I’m in a new airport and the possibilities that come with them; the smell of cinnamon in far-too strong coffee; the moment between dawn and night when everything stands still – even time. I live for books that keep me up all night; for the first second the water touches my face in the shower; for late nights and good conversations, and friends that become family.
I left my birth country (I will not say home country because I consider this whole Earth my home) when I was 18 in search of some answers.
I have lived since then in Switzerland, the UK, America and for the last 6 months China has been my home.
My mother hopes that after this leg of my journey I will go back and settle down. But we both know that is not true. I’ve been telling myself that lately, but every time I start thinking about all the places that I have not been to, the settle-down plan seems to move further and further.
I’m a happy person – I try to give thanks and appreciate all that comes my way. I try to learn from the people that come into my life and not dwell to much if things don’t turn out as expected. Of course not everything is sunshine and flowers – I have bad days – but the tattoo inked on both my wrists remind me that where there is darkness, there will be light too, and vice versa.
All that I got (spiritually, mentally or materially) I got through hard-work and dedication. I was taught at a young age that that’s what it takes to succeed. If I wanted something I went and got it.
I’m not looking for perfection and I’m not portraying perfection: what you see on this site are snippets of my life – things that inspire me, things that happen in my life, things that move me. I will try to put them all down in words and share them mostly for my memories and for my own development. However, I would be happy if anything you saw here inspired you to make a change in your life!
I don’t have any answers – if you landed on this page in search of answers, I’m sorry to disappoint you, but I don’t know the answers myself.
I just know that I am part of a bigger plan and that all my dreams were born before the beginning of time – and a higher Power works its powers through me – through all of us, to full fill them and to bring some balance to the Universe. I am a tiny grain, the smallest particle of the atom – but I know that if I don’t live my destiny, the Balance will decline.
All I do – or try to do – is to work hard, follow my dreams, trust my intuition and enjoy the ride.
Because it is a hell of a Ride, my friends.
