“Change isn’t easy… changing the way you live means changing what you believe about life. That’s hard… When we make our own misery, we sometimes cling to it even when we want so bad to change because the misery is something we know. The misery is comfortable.”Dean Koontz

A lot has happened in the past year. Good and bad. I laughed, cried, got my heart broken. I thought things couldn’t get worse, then they did. Then I thought things couldn’t get any better, and… lo and behold, they did.

And I changed. As a person. I began to see myself in a different light. I began to see the world around me differently. Continue reading

A long time ago

time2On a cold and dark night of December I wrote my first story. It was for the first time that I had the vision, that my eyes saw more than what was right there, in front of me, that my ears heard more, and my mouth wanted to speak in a voice that was louder than ever before.

I wanted to reach people, I wanted to share with them the same dream I had. It was happiness in a way that you know it can only last for a few moments, that kind of happiness you could never expect to last longer. I was happy because I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Continue reading


“I’m not saying that everything is survivable. Just that everything except the last thing is.” John Green

Most of us don’t realize how strong we are. It seems as if we start off as being invincible. Or at least feeling as if we are. And life kind of happens, and we fail, time and time again, and suddenly we grow afraid of failure, oftentimes afraid of success just as much.

The trick is not to hide your pain behind a smile. Continue reading


“Unless a man undertakes more than he possibly can do, he will never do all he can do.”– Henry Drummond

To push oneself to the limit. And beyond. In a way, this is what living a meaningful life is all about. The struggle, the desire to achieve more than seems possible.

Our potential is endless, our capacity for expansion exceeds our imagination.

More. More. More.

Going the extra mile is what this is all about. Going after all your impulses tell you to quit. Going after the chatterbox inside your head tells you to give up. Going after every single cell in your body tells you that it’s time to roll over and die.

This is what life is about. The struggle. The fight. The war we have to wage with ourselves, in our endless pursuit to become better than we were yesterday.

Ambition without hard work is useless.

Talent without hard work is useless.

Love without hard work is useless.

Being alive without working hard is useless.

Life is pain


“Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” William Goldman

I’m not a big fan of “positive thinking.” Yes, it’s important that we love ourselves, that we try to see all that is good and worthy of gratitude in us and others. I believe in seeing the light in others and offering them the support they need to better themselves.

But I also know that it is extremely important that we be realistic about what is what and who is who.

The road to success

“The road to success is always under construction.”Arnold Palmer

Success. A term vaguely used to describe someone’s pursuit for a fulfilling career. A simple word that encapsulates passion, drive, and discipline.

Hard work.

Endless struggles and failures and petty frustrations.
