Day 339 – Choices

D

If you had to choose between an insecure heaven or hell with benefits what would you do? I am exactly in that position today. I have signed my way into hell with benefits and was offered the chance to see how heaven looks like; a beautiful, insecure heaven. I have been given this choice many times before and I have always failed to choose the right thing. For some reason, hell with benefits...

Day 332 – No feelings left to give

D

I could give up tomorrow. I could just pack my bags and leave everything behind if I would be given the choice. And there is always a choice. I would abandon this beautiful city that changed my life, the amazing people I have met, the house where my daughter took her first steps, myself. I have no feelings left to give. I would do that starting now, but…I choose not to. Everyday I choose to...

Day 303 – Life sucks because it’s awesome

D

Life sucks right? No matter what language you use, what nationality or financial situation you have, you must have said at least once in your life that “Life sucks!”. Life is not easy for any of us and it’s not suppose to be easy, otherwise it wouldn’t be so awesome. I’ve used that sentence more than a hundred times during my journey through life and I still am using...

Day 296 – Suffering

D

This week, some of my good friends have lost someone dear to them and I got to think about suffering. We each experience suffering on different levels, in different ways. We are created in such a way that every feeling we experience is unique. We are born to believe that we are invincible and although we learn about death, although we experience it through losses of those dear to us, we still...

Day 255 – “You are so brave!”

D

As some of you may already know, we have completely changed our lives in the last year or so. We didn’t want to end up being frustrated for not doing what we love, so we’ve risked it all (in other people’s opinion). The thing that annoys me the most is not the gossip that reaches my ears from time to time (we are all human, thus we all NEED to gossip), but the assumptions that...

About life as an adventure, fatherhood and fine art photography with Mark Abouzeid

A

Mark Abouzeid is a remarkable storyteller. Ever since we had our first conversation in Piazza Santo Spirito, he never ceased to captivate my attention with his fascinating stories about life, travelling and fatherhood. Mark is not your regular artist, in fact he doesn’t fit any category really well, but his work is amazing and speaks for itself. He is truely a source of inspiration and I...

Day 192 – Opportunities and damaging thoughts

D

I have always been a lucky person, or at least that’s how I like to see things, although if someone would look into my past or present they would say I am very unfortunate, but have always managed somehow to struggle and get myself out of trouble. This also goes for the opportunities that have reached my hand over the years and I have either managed to choose the wrong one, or most of the...

Day 165 – Searching for…

D

Did I tell you that sometimes I feel like crawling into a hole and not come out of there for a long time? Did I tell you that when I feel like doing that, writing these daily thoughts are the hardest thing I have to do? I am so tired! I am tired of feeling needy, tired of asking and not receiving, tired of feeling like I don’t belong or that I am not doing enough. Sometimes, I think that...

Day 129 – Opinions

D

Everyone has an opinion about everything and everyone else. We are entitled to our opinions nowadays and we can throw them in the air, not caring if they hurt or if they are need it or not, just because we have the right to speak up. Your life is analyzed and thought of in a much better way than you by your friends, family or even acquaintances and they all know best, as if they are the ones...

Day 117 – “A lie is more comfortable than doubt, more useful than love, more lasting than truth.”

D

Today I came across this quote that G.G. Marquez said and believed in and I stand by it entirely. Whenever life deceives you, whenever tears come crawling from deep inside your dying soul, whenever the blackness overcomes your so called optimism, the only thing that can save you is a lie. Lies can provide the few moments of pure joy in life, like when you see your new born baby for the first time...
