• Happiness is Like Glass

    I came across a really cool quote the other day: “Happiness is like glass, it can be all around you, yet be invisible. But if you change your angle of viewing a little, it will reflect light more beautifully than any other object around you.” -Lelouch Lamperouge Lelouch Lamperouge must have been a wise man, I thought, after reading this. I pictured him as an old man with a long white beard and round glasses. Boy was I mistaken. Fun fact: Lelouch Lamperouge is actually a character from a Japanese anime series. Young, energetic with some stellar violet eyes. I like his take on happiness. “Happiness is like glass…” How accurate,…

This happened to me very recently and really made me feel so much better about myself. In fact, I felt so inspired that I came up with a small poem: And remember to…

  • What sunflowers can teach us about life

    I was taking a sunny walk, which lead me to a beautiful field full of sunflowers. To be honest with you, sunflowers used to be my last pick at a florist’s, but that changed on that day. As I was standing in front of the vast yellow I realized something incredible about sunflowers. Their heads all pointed to the same direction, at the sun. They are following the sun constantly, because they need the sun in order to nourish, blossom and grow so sunflowers actively expose their most to the sunlight. To some this observation might be nothing new and, hey, I agree it’s not rocket science, but I never consciously…
