The Secret of Getting Ahead



The secret of getting ahead is getting started.

The secret of getting started

is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks

into small manageable tasks

and then starting on the first one.

I’m Back

Fantasy Series

I’ve been on hiatus for around three months and have been posting sporadically during those months prior to that. I got extremely busy with my full time work, postgraduate studies and art school. A lot of people think I’m a little bit crazy to have done that. And yes, there have been moments when I recognized my creative insanity. But hey I survived and I am happy (which is a really good thing).

This post is not going to be about why I disappeared in the blogging world for a while. This is about me saying “I’m still here”.  I miss blogging. I’m now overwhelmed with that kind of feeling similar to what I have for that special cup of coffee that I haven’t had for a couple of months because I was away for my holiday. I miss myself doing this. And it’s good to be back.

Last week I did a photography project with a friend who was kind enough to be my model. She is one amazing person with a fiery and highly contagious passion for creativity. To Kim and Budz, thank you so much!  I’ve always wanted to take photos of someone in the woods near a river in Hutt (New Zealand) and I can’t tell you enough how ecstatic I was for having done that.

So, here are the photos for you to enjoy. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Pride and Weakness



No one enjoys feeling weak, whether it is emotionally, spiritually or physically. There is something within the human spirit that wants to resist the thought of weakness. Many times this is nothing more than our human pride at work. Just as weakness carries a great potential for strength, pride carries an equally great potential for defeat.
