A Sky Full of Stars


It’s not very often I come across songs I really, really, really love – and at first listen at that – this is one of them rare gems. It brings to mind mornings with soft sunshine, beauty, and possibilities. An absolute diamond.

I can’t believe July is already here and we’re now in the second half of the year, of 2014. Time flies, doesn’t it? It really is fleeting. Before we know it, it’ll be year end, and then 2015. And what will you have achieved when it arrives? What will you have experienced? What will you have celebrated?

The past few months of attempting to manage a busy schedule have shown me, even more so, just how ephemeral time truly is, and how it waits for no (wo)man. And while I do indeed, enjoy the myriad of luxuries this beautiful world has to offer, nothing is deemed more of a luxury to me than time itself, which is ever so often taken for granted, unfortunately so. It would be brilliant to have forty-eight hours in a day – or even better yet, seventy-two – instead of the twenty-four we all hold in our hands, but since that can’t be changed, we have to make the most of what we do have – sixteen precious hours of awake time (because I need my eight equally as precious hours of beauty sleep, eighteen if I can run on six). And I say attempting because I’ve yet to actually master said schedule, which will probably take quite a significant amount of time to do. It’s definitely something I’m embracing though.

The journey so far has been a wonderful one. These six months alone have exposed me to so many things beyond what I could’ve ever imagined and more. And it has shown me – yet again – that anything is possible if you choose to put your mind to it. It has never failed to amaze me until this very day, and it only fuels me to pursue more and strive harder, go further, be better, and soak in all the beauty this life has to offer in its entirety. I don’t just want to aim for the destination, I want to enjoy and savour the journey there as well.

I want to fill the second half of my year up with bliss and experiences and inspiration and wonder. And voyages of even more self-discovery and exploration. I want to fill it up with good books and good music and good conversations and good company. I want to fill it up with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets in breathtaking places. Time seems to be passing by quicker and quicker each year, and I’m determined to make the very most of it. The first half of the year has been a steep learning curve for me, in more ways than one and in so many different aspects. I’ve opened up both my heart and mind, and embraced vulnerability and growth, which in turn made way for new strength. It certainly wasn’t smooth sailing all the way, but I’m extremely thankful for it all – for the choppy waters, the lessons, the experiences, the wonders and the joys.

I can feel it – I’m getting there.

I’ve been throwing myself in (manageable, or eventually manageable) discomfort because I know growth and mastery are not built around a life of ease. I just have to continue doing what I’ve been doing, and constantly improve. Maintain and nurture that independence and discipline, that self-respect and self-worth, that warmth and passion.

Most importantly,

I know what I’m fighting for.

Good night, darlings. Bisous.
