There’s a great symphony in sadness
A million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone.

It’s a tragedy, no doubt. 
Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason.
But incomprehensible in a way that makes it strikingly poetic.

Sadness is drama, a well of emotions, woven into a sense of emptiness and despair.
Yet it reminds you somehow, that you’re human and still alive
It reminds you that it’s OK to be sad sometimes- because sadness still beats indifference. 

It means you long for something better
for connection
to be seen, to be heard and to be understood. 

Science may indeed have the answers to some of life’s questions
But dare I say, life is also art.

So take your sadness, and let that symphony play

Let it play out of you, all the way out, 
until one day, it finally sets you free.

  • The Decision of No Decision
    Indecision is a decision in and of itself, even though you may not recognise it as such. Your decision to do nothing – to let things play out on their own. It’s taking a back seat and waiting to see how the chips may fall.
  • Taking your second chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
