I asked her for a piece of advice. She reached in her purse, pulled out a piece of paper, and handed it to me. It said this:

Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good. Life is too short— enjoy it. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present and the future. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.
Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. If a relationship has to be secret, you shouldn’t be in it. 
Take a deep breath, it calms the mind. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. It’s never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else. When it comes time to go after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer. Burn the nice candles, use the nice sheets, wear the nice lingerie, wear the nice clothes. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
Over prepare, then go with the flow. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: ‘In five years will this matter?’ Always choose life. Forgive but don’t forget. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
If we all threw our problems in a pile and we saw everyone else’s, we’d grab our’s back. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you need. Yield. Friends are the family we choose. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.*

Probably the best song of the year and video to increase it.


Possibly one of the best rock n roll tracks ever made.

Six months ago this girl breezefully bounced into my office and today she sadly left it. It is rare to meet a human with such passion and love for life and her humour, happiness and humbleness meant a lasting friendship only took days to forge.

She has travelled like an adventuring nomad (not like a boozed up backpacker) and now she has started her own adventure tour company, by herself to take people on adventures and introduce them to the cultures behind the tourist traps.

Every morning she sent quotes and jokes around the office so everyone started the day off either dreaming or laughing. And now I know her I want my life motto to be:

-Do What You Love and Love What You Do and Be Kind to All-

#basketball I first played basketball when I was five, and could never foresee a future where my ball would actually hit the hoop. 27 years later and its still my escape, my happy place and my playground.

If the WNBA was around when I was a teenager my reality would be a different world right now and vodka would not feature so prominently in it. Surely, it is where my love of hip hop came from, I must be thankful for that.
