A little Monday inspiration...

All the pictures are from here 
"The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day that your life really begins."
 ~ Bob Moawad. 

Its Monday again and I thought these pretty quotes and pictures might just be the cure for the Monday blues.
Hope you all have a fantastic week ahead :)

A little piece of home

So a few weeks ago I went home to my mom's and stayed with her for two weeks. It was SO relaxing after dealing with finals for over a month. There are alot of reasons why I love going home so much, other than the obvious fact that I get to spend time with my mom and kid brother, and one of them is the beauty of the place. I can never get tired of it and staying far from home only makes me appreciate it even more. I truly love the city and enjoy living here but (and yeah its cliché) but there is no place like home.
I planned on taking photos of the clear skies we usually have there at night when the sky is just alight and filled with the  prettiest stars, but this time around it was mostly cloudy :(.
I did manage to snap these beauties though. Don't you just love the scenery? I took the photos with my camera phone but I think they still turned out pretty great.
 I was trying to capture something in the last phot but my mom started driving so I ended up with this picture. I immediately loved how it came out like a cross between a painting and a photograph.
I'll try to capture more beautiful places from my home town and share them with you, I hope you enjoy my piece of home as much as I do.

Of emotions and brave faces......

Lately I've been going through some changes in my life both personally and professionally. While change is good, as I keep hearing, it most certainly is NOT an easy thing to go through. This is especially hard for me because I tend to be very private and am rarely comfortable enough to share my deepest problems with those close to me. Now this is not to do with them because I love and trust them dearly, but much rather to do with me. I don't do too well in exposing my vulnerability. So in all these changes I've managed to keep all my emotions and fears to myself. I know this is not the healthiest thing to do but we all have our own ways of dealing with problems and life's suprises and this is what I'm comfortable doing to deal with mine.

This post was NOT about how I deal with my problems, got a little side-tracked there... What I meant to say is that its proving a bit difficult to put on a brave face sometimes when you have all these burning questions and issues inside going over and over in your head, it certainly isn't easy for me. Especially since I spend most of the day at work where you can't exactly just sit around and think about personal issues.

What I'm trying to say here is that, while people put on brave faces, its not always as calm on the inside as it seems on the outside. But its comforting to know that no situation is permanent and everything falls into place after a certain time. I know soon enough I will adjust to all these changes going on in my life at the moment.
