I was told not to go to Stonehenge, acquaintances from work, tourists, and locals.
I had already lost my tour since I misplaced my printed ticket and I was told to get another at the tour office. Which tour office? I didn’t find the office and the bus left without me. Later I would find out that they were sorry they left me because I was, indeed, on the passenger list. It would be until next week, on a Saturday that I could take the tour again. I was hesitant.
I was pondering the comments I received about Stonehenge, the fact that I would be going by myself, I was going to miss the activities I had planned for that day, and at the end that place was just a bunch of stones placed next to one another and some on top.
Living in a country full of pyramids, I had to take back my statement about Stonehenge being only a tiers of stones. From my state of being at that moment, Stonehenge was more than what I was told, I was really moved by being there. I don’t regret it now and for sure I will be back.
Just came back on Sunday from my trip to London. I took a lot of photographs, about 2,000 and from all of them I had trouble choosing which one to post first.
This trip has many meanings to me, many perspectives, many reasons. I always wanted to go to London and see the city, but couldn’t find the time, the means.
I wasn’t counting on what life wants from us. And it is so, that life is there to teach us and to give us all we desire in exchange for one to give to others (this is part of another related story) .
And what is that the Universe wants from us?
Love your neighbor as yourself.
Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you.

Balance, is not.
I had a physics professor once that said that real balance was not like the one we know.
Balance in nature, he said, doesn’t keep things, neat nor nicely pile up, or from A to B.
Balance is the object’s natural state of being.
The Morale? Well, lets not get stressed if everything doesn’t look the way we want it, for sure they have found their balance in a way we ignore.
A list of happy things.
One of those things that kids make, one of those things we take for granted. One of those things we forget when we grow up.
So here is the deal, on this season try and make your own list of things that make you happy. I am working on my own and I think is already worth it.
Because I see my life changing every second.
To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.
To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”
― Christian D. Larson
Time for another spin.
Changing jobs, again.
Resistance causes friction.
Acceptance allows Flow.
Sometimes up, sometimes down.
At times it is better not to try to understand everything, letting things not to be perfect (your way) and just let things be.
One life, one ride. Let it come.
Getting rid of some past, doing some cleaning, I will quit my job tomorrow. 🙂
To blunt?… two weeks notice.
I was getting some dust over my wings so I needed to start something new.
It has always being hard to stay at one place for long, mainly a place where I can’t develop my skills or even state my opinion.
In the past I left consulting because I got tired of it after more than a decade of long working days. Have to say that even though those days were tough, they were quite fulfilling.
I am going back to basics with different colors. I don’t know if it will be better (hope so) but I do know that I will like it. Risks? many, the same as staying at the current job.
You probably have seen the movie Castaway, where a man gets stuck at an island. Well, it is the same feeling. One might have everything that is needed to live a life but at some point one just gets tired of the “comfort” where almost all you need is at the reach of your hand. I am about to hop into a little raft with an improvised sail and test if all what I have learned helps me to survive. In case of an emergency I will only have let go and trust my destiny . Here we go…
…A calm sea does not make a skilled sailor…
That is what the sign on the lower right corner says: “Please deposit here your chewing gum”!
Well yes, it was my BDay. Four decades plus some months. Many not that much months.
Great to have friends celebrate with with me and with a very special one.
Don’t you dare count the candles! The only thing I can point out is that all fit in the small pie. A little Tight but fitted.
