Unexpected moments

Audrey Hepburn once said "To have beautiful lips, say beautiful things; to have beautiful eyes look at people and see the good in them; to stay thin share a meal with someone who is hungry."

I had an unexpected encounter this weekend at the airport, wherein I had a chat with someone who hurt me in the past. We have both since moved on with our lives but what was interesting about this encounter was how at peace I was with having a friendly chat with this person, and how I was finally (after 2 years or so) able to truly wish the best for them. To me this proves the adage that time heals all wounds. That is not to say that they wont hurt but perhaps they hurt less and less as we ourselves to accept the hurt as a learning experience and allow ourselves to move on and grow.

I would add to the above quote that to have a beautiful life recognize the moments where you need serenity and those moments will make you who you are meant to be.

Sometimes people see better through a lens, of a camera, of academia or other. Something to distance oneself just a bit from reality. I guess that by starting this blog I'm attempting to do just that. Here's the challenge to myself; write a weekly (or so) blog post about my insightful observations through the lens about anything. I promise not to censor myself and to put my thoughts into words to the best of my abilities and explain the thoughts behind my beliefs and actions if so requested. I do not and will not promise to include the minutia of my daily life but rather will use this as a forum to inspire thought within myself and anyone who happens to read. I will have no set word count or subject matter other than what topics are on my mind. For those embarking on this journey with me, I salute you.
