Entries about passion


Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind, and therefore winged Cupid is painted blind...

storm 13 °C

Passion is such a deep emotion, that when you experience it's overwhelming power, you are clear, free and know exactly what your heart desires.
There are many things in life that I love, but few special things that I love with a deep passion, truly drive me, motivate me and make me understand myself, my goals, my dreams and the world around me.
I feel this with music, travel and in particular, literature.

After recently watching The Dead Poets Society for the hundredth time, I was once again taken, the beauty of the film captivating my heart and soul.

Carpe Diem - seize the day, simply scribed under my breast, the very words I live by. Embrace and live in each moment, for each is a gift bestowed upon us by the universe.

Ideas and words can change the world - that each idea is precious and valuable, never doubt what you believe in, and if you live and breathe your beliefs, you have a unique power to change your life or someone else's world.

Make your life extraordinary - this life is yours. It is in your hands and it is up to you to make the most of it. I want a great life and I'm prepared
To do anything to make it extraordinary.

After spending the week flooding my thoughts with Keats and Shakespeare... I am constantly reminded of my dreams. When I'm in my element, with a book by my side, words in my head and pen in my hand... My world is clear. And there is no greater feeling than understanding yourself and feeling truly at peace within a single moment. And within this moment, you are invincible, untouchable, unstoppable and most importantly... Free.

And I embrace these precious moments when they occur, just every now and then... And the stars shine a little bit brighter, words taste a little bit sweeter and life is just that little bit more extraordinary.

The Heart - The High and The Hurt

Everything Happens For a Reason

rain 10 °C

If your heart is just a muscle that pumps blood through your body, then why does it feel like it's shattering within you when something bad happens or feels like it's going to escape through your chest when when you're escatic?
I'm a very emotional, expressive person who is a hopeless romantic, who may have fairytale like dreams, but I believe they will come true. I also know that everything happens for a reason. Because without the storm, the sun would not shine as bright.

The heart is like the ocean, forever changing, moving and growing....
With every wave that crashes on the shore, to every storm that sweeps the sea... a tiny emotion dapples the surface, a rippling effect flushes through your heart and your entire body until you are overcome by a feeling.

We are sometimes torn between our heart and our head. Mr Brain speaks with reason, logic and intellect whereas Miss Heartbeat sings with emotion and passion, two voices that clash somewhere in the bottom of your stomach that makes you feel sick when trying to decide what to do.
I am often torn between these two voices, each just as valuable as the other... however I believe in life, the ultimate goal is to be happy, and you obtain happiness by doing and getting things that you truly want and desire which are the notes that often flow from the heart.

My heart is still young and growing. I'm still figuring out who I am, who I want to be and what I want in life. But I do have big goals, dreams and aspirations and though the path to happiness may not always be clear, I follow my heart and I know I cannot get lost.
Being away from home, my heart has experienced the coldness of the darkest depths of the Pacific to the warm, shining tides of the Mediterranean, but I feel that each experience helps your heart grow and learn, making you stronger and wiser for the next wave you catch.

As Eleanor Roosevelt said, "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do."

I have so many big goals and dreams I want to achieve. And I know I can. And I know it won't be easy, it's not supposed to be.
In this moment, a wave of motivation floods through my body, as I ride this wave who know where it will take me, what paths I will cross, who I will meet and what I will do, but I know it will be an adventure and my heart leaps out of my chest at the very thought.

The Beginning

sunny 19 °C


I am a young girl who has more thoughts, ideas, opinions and feelings than there are golden specks of sand on the shores of the world.
I am fascinated by life and all of its hidden treasures.
I want so much out of life that I don't know if its possible to fit it into one lifetime.
To learn a language, live abroad, travel every continent, go skydiving, be a published writer, fall in love, do a triathalon... The list and this life continues like the crashing of waves, it never stops. Each one is different. You rise and fall, sometimes get completely smashed. But at the end of the day, you can watch the sun set over the horizon as its golden rays assure you that everything will be ok.
Every path leads you somewhere. Every cloud has a silver lining. And every person has their story to tell.
And this is mine as my wave unfolds, for now, just an idea in the brilliant mind of the ocean.
