    My heart is longing for an adventure.

    An extended period of time on the road, exploring new and unusual places, meeting new faces and capturing as much as I can with my camera. I like the free spirited feeling of being on my own and answering to myself. Today may not be the day for it, but my next day off will find...

    The Universe Conspires To Help

    One of my favourite books ever is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, which is about following your heart. I just LOVE that book! (I've just discovered that Paulo and I share the same birthday). There's a quote in the book that goes: "And, when you want something, all the universe...

    The mind can complicate everything

    but the heart simply knows if it feels right or wrong. That doesn't mean don't think at all...It means, don't ignore your heart. It is your conscience, your truth, and your path.

    So I met this wonderful girl

    and I'm going 11 hours away to meet her. And I can't wait. Its scary but maybe we will hit it off great if not at least I met someone amazing. I never followed my heart before. Sounds cheesy but it's so exciting!

    sometimes you have to swim a little deeper... You can't give up just because things don't come easy... You have to over come the obstacles and face your fears... But in the end it's all worth while! Life is full of ups and downs, but if you believe in yourself you will always...

    How Do I Do That?

    When people say to me that I should follow my heart, or my inner "something", I always try to figure out how I do that. As if there were a how  to do list, but when we try to find a method for it, or define what it means, we are not following our heart anymore. Right ? Sometimes...

    Your first thoughts on a subject should assist

    you on your deciding what to do in so many situations, because your heart first receives the stimulae and only after it has considered it does your brain get involved and compare experiences and history.

    Be yourself. If you water yourself down to

    please people or to fit in or to not offend anyone, you lose the power, the passion, the freedom and the joy of being uniquely you. It's much easier to love yourself, when your being yourself. :)

    Follow Your Heart, But Don't Forget To Take Your Brain

    Many times in my life I neither followed my heart nor used my brain to make some decisions. I really don't know why I did what I did, but I'm sure it was based partly in fear and anxiety, or just giving up on finding the right person. Now I've learned what consequences those...

    Our society is driven by our minds,
