To live is the rarest thing in the world.

Nature in another form.

Our lives are simply stories that we write each day. And the best writers are those barely holding onto their sanity.

Ahhh winter. It is the best time of the year. But before you disagree, think about it. Skiing (or snowboarding!) always beat the beach for vacations. And having fun in the snow leaves us soggy, exhausted and thoroughly rewarded. Coming in from the cold is definitely way better than coming in from the heat. There’s simply nothing like having a hot chocolate to warm us up. And don’t forget those marshmallows too.There’s no better season to cuddle up, anytime, anywhere.Winter… It’s the season that makes us appreciate the little things we tend to forget throughout the rest of the year.

A Delicate Balance

There is something perfect to be found in the imperfect. If everything was beautiful, nothing would be. A positive always requires a negative to complete its cycle.

Both darkness and light are equally present in each of us. Each of these is a world in itself, always trying to establish harmony with each other.

The universe provides contrast and teaches us how to be calm and grounded between extremes to keep us in balance.

After all, living and dying are, in a sense, of equal value. If we lived well, we’d die well too.

"I felt that living in elegance and luxury cancelled creativity, or even some of that sort of Sunday school philosophy that luxury comes as a guest and then becomes the master. That was a philosophy that I held onto. I still had that stereotyped idea that success would deter it, that luxury would make you too comfortable and complacent and that the gift would suffer from it."
