“I was to find myself facing north. For this to happen, I need the input and support of my friends. Left to my own devices, I just spin around. We have the expression “Everything went south.” I want to avoid that possibility. And so I seek the companionship of like minded spirits – people who are both tough-minded and tenderhearted.
Seeking to savor my life, I need to savor first of all my relationships. Friends keep me on track…”
(by Julia Cameron in The Creative Life)
Certainty is an amazing feeling to have. Knowing where you are going and how to get there is also a gift! However, for me these things would never be possible without friends support.
They are my emotional compass! They are the ones that pull me back when I am wandering. They are the ones that poke me to say “Hello! Earth is calling!”
They are the buffers of my tears, the amplifiers of my laughs.
Their a presence are so strong that sometimes they don’t even need to be there!
To all my friends, thank you for everything!

“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” – Joseph Campbell
I grew up believing that we have a path to follow. That this path is not necessarily leading us to where we want to be, but takes us through emotions and situations we chose to study deeper, which would make us spiritually stronger.
Sometimes, path and destination get all mixed up! I think this happens when our intellect comes in and starts planning too much.
I thought the quote above would truly represent what is happening in my life now and I wanted to share it.
So, writing your own life story does not necessarily takes you straight from point A to B, we got to live the little nuances life presents to us so we can get to where we want with a full baggage.
Enjoy your day and pack your bags with the good stuff!
