The mouth should have three gatekeepers. Is it true? Is it kind? And is it necessary?
-Arab Proverb A beautiful proverb and reminder that I always like to come back to, and try to apply to everyday life. Too often we let fruitless and empty words slip from our mouths. Too often we fail to realise the impact and power of our words.
The silence depressed me. It wasn't the silence of silence. It was my own silence.” ― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
This week has been bitterly cold. In particular the chilly, icy mornings. I've lost count of the amount of layers of clothes I throw on in the morning. But they still aren't enough. Public transport doesn't help either, especially when the person sat on the seat next to you decides to open the window, and the driver has no intention of putting heating on. I feel like an ice lolly by the time I reach work. I think I'm just one of those people who are forever cold. Thank god for the kettle at work.
I'm starting 2015 a little late on this space so a belated happy new year dear blogging friends and readers. I apologise for the recent gaps of silence around here. 2014 was a whirlwind of events and emotions and so I needed sometime to breathe, to collect my thoughts, and to just be. It wasn't the best year and I'm so glad it's over. I really am. This year I've made a pact with myself to slow things down, take every day as it comes, and to just be. I'm done with listening to the voices around me. Instead, I shall listen to that little voice inside of me, the one that tells me to... Just Be.
p.s hoping to get my blog a little more organised. I have some ideas for new photo series but I'd love to hear from you, so if you have any suggestions of what you'd like to see more of please let me know!
