I woke up feeling fantastic, bombarded with birthday wishes from friends and family. Happily, I soaked in the glory, greedily bathing in their love (arriving in the form of facebook wall posts/sms/calls/catchups). Even strangers, the ticket guy from the station, the hairdresser, the ticket lady at the cinema, smiled, complimented and wished me well.
As I stood there in a poker dot red dress, surrounded by friends and holding a handful of colorful helium balloons; I felt like a little kid living in a beautiful loving world.
"NOW" is a gift, that's why they call it "THE PRESENT"
Travel life has the essence of a dream.
It is something outside the normal,
yet you are in it.
It is peopled with characters you have never seen before
and in all probability will never see again.
It brings occasional homesickness, and loneliness,
and pangs of longings...
But you are like the vikings who have gone into a world of adventure,
and home is not home until you return.
But home is where the heart is.
So where is home?
Dance like no one is watching
Love like you've never been hurt
Sing like no one's listening
Live like it's heaven on earth
Chocolate flows in deep dark, sweet waves, a river to ignite the mind and alert the senses...
Unexpected events in our daily lives are like different flavors that lie waiting beneath each chocolate cover.
Just like Forrest Gump explained:
"Life is like a box of chocolate, coz you never know what you're gonna get"
