Develop an interest in life as you see it: the people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people.
I've recently began a new chapter in my life, which perhaps accounts for why I haven't been as vigilant at keeping up with blogging as I would have liked to. So many changes to account for, I hardly know where to begin. I left Montreal, not knowing exactly where I would land up. I ended up in Dubai, getting a job that I absolutely love - working with fantastically creative and innovative people, having family nearby, and I couldn't be happier. I'm the Social Media Manager for The Address Hotels + Resorts and I think it's a fabulous account to work for. There are many ways to grow it creatively and from a digital perspective, there are so many areas that are only just developing that there is ample room for growth and improvement.
From a personal standpoint, it's always tough to move to a new place, but I think I have become such a seasoned traveler that it has almost become second-nature to me. But like I have always maintained, to belong nowhere is in itself a freedom and an obstacle simultaneously.
I found this in a recent hand-written diary of mine and I wanted to share it because I think it so accurately describes the duality that we are sometimes confronted with on a day to day basis:
Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for the one who has the vision to recognize it as such.
