1. Time alone
Lately, I have been taking time to reflect on life. It has been a beautiful journey of re-discovering myself through meditating on my feelings and thoughts-I guess you could say I’ve been soul searching. This has made me realize how peaceful and refreshing it is to simply listen to your own thoughts.

2. Minor secrets
I stumbled upon one of my mother’s old diaries not too long ago. There is just something about a blank diary that draws you to it. I have since then used it as a journal. I take time to put down my thoughts which helps me think clearly. I even doodle in it occasionally — which is why it will never see the light of day.
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” ― Roald Dahl
A few weeks ago, I met a beautiful high-spirited woman. She radiates a beautiful charisma that could sweep you off your feet — literally sometimes. It was refreshing to meet someone so bubbly and enthusiastic. Each of us is free-spirited in some ways — oh how happy we would be if we embraced it!
“A free spirit is not bound by this, that, matter, materialism or opinion. They sing, dance and flow on the wind — for they are at one with it. They are nothing and everything — void and expanse. Even space and time does not confine or define them. For they are pure energy itself.”―Rasheed Ogunlaru
Last week, I reflected on how being kind to yourself is the key to a more peaceful and fulfilling life. I shared the lessons I learnt through this short article. I was deeply moved by all the responses I received from the people that read it. This made me realize how important it is to share one’s experiences and thoughts as these could serve as life lessons for others.
