Good luck,

Cristian

New release: 2:22 AM

coverThey say the only ones who are awake late at night are the lonely and the loved. The former find it hard to fall asleep when all they have to do is dream with open eyes about their beloved. It’s almost a compulsion.
But what about the lonely? All the artists, the dreamers; the ones who hold tight to a reality they don’t understand and want to explain? Continue reading

Imagination and obsession

imaginationmotivationSuch a wonderful gift the world has given us… the power of imagination. We can make anything up in our minds. Create anything at all. Re-arrange elements, add or subtract…

It is said we spend about 30% of the time daydreaming. It is said we fall asleep imagining perfect scenarios…some times we sleep with them inside our heads too.

Tonight I’m going to tell you how imagination can help you get everything you ever wanted. Continue reading

The mountain

“It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.” – Muhammad Ali

Ever felt like a failure? Worthless? Lonely being redemption, broken beyond repair. A waste of time?

Ever felt that it just doesn’t matter?

Ever felt like you couldn’t do something because it was too difficult? Because you were just not good enough? Or smart enough? Or you didn’t have the resources you needed?

Ever felt hopeless, seemingly destined to spend your life daydreaming about what would never be and what was and could no longer be? Continue reading

Life is pain

image

“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.

New YouTube Series: Questions

Hi guys,

I started a new YouTube series.

We all ask ourselves questions. About the world. About ourselves. About others. But there are some questions we seldom dare ask. Questions we overlook or discard as being unimportant.

This new series aims to ask some of those questions, and ultimately convince you to ask them as well…

Don’t forget to LIKE and SUBSCRIBE.

Cheers,

Cristian

The little things

thingsWe’ve been told (and we keep on telling ourselves on a regular basis) that life finds a way, that somehow things turn out for the better. That if you want it, you can have it.

Sadly, that’s not true.

Do you know what keeps me up some nights? It’s the fear that somehow I won’t be able to write anymore, that somehow life’s going to take that away from me. And that I won’t be able to find a way, that life just won’t want to present me with a solution. Continue reading

To whom it may concern

letterI’m twenty six years old, and in that short time frame I’ve learned that life is rarely fair. But it goes on. Whether we like it or not, life goes on.

Maybe we live in a dangerous world. Maybe this world has always been “unsafe” for those who weren’t sure what to do.

And I’d like to tell you there’s nothing to be afraid of, I’d like to tell you that failures build a man, that every fall is also a step forward. That what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger…

But the truth is that, most times, what doesn’t kill you makes you wish it did. Continue reading

Why I ditched my Android phone for an iPhone 7+

Anoop Menon

After owning five Android-powered Samsung phones, I switched to an iPhone 7+. After six months, I am sharing my experience with the world.

My previous phone was Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Like any other gadget lover, I change my phone every one year or two using my AT&T Next Benefits.

After using the S6 Edge for six months, it seemed evident that my next phone will not be an Android and not manufactured by Samsung. Note 7s catching fire had no impact on my decision.

Before I start, I want to warn – I am not a typical smartphone user. I treat my phone like a computer.For my work, I talk on my cell phone average 18hours a day which is a mix of local calls, Skype, Google Hangout, Webex, WhatsApp, Facebook, and Duo.

Also, every time I am on such a call, I am multi-tasking on the phone using…
