Dear friends,
I want to apologise for my lack of presence on this blog over the last couple of months.

The good news is that I have finally completed my first year of university and now am back to visiting my home countries Bulgaria and China. Gosh I love them both 🙂 To add to this positive short update, I will also use this opportunity to let you know that from the 29th July I will begin to add Diary Entries on this blog upon my arrive in my beloved China.

The down side is that it was an incredibly challenging time for me lately, which killed my creativity for a bit. Unfortunately, some of my family are experiencing severe health problems and a few other troubles that I have been focused on dealing with. You know, the trick with caring about other people is that when you see them suffering it can cause you even more pain than if it was happening to yourself.

For this blog entry, we will take a detour from the Trip of a Life time saga and discuss what happens when problems arise in close relationships or friendships.

You get the idea. Right?

Obviously, my holiday of a lifetime included a little more perspiration rather than procrastination so here is my simple guide on How to Plan the Trip of a Lifetime to show you how I did it! I think this simple step by step guide works with any idea generally, but I will mostly apply the rules for the purpose of trip- building.

Step 1: Get an idea! Remember- without direction, we are almost not going anywhere! So get to the drawing room and make a wish!

Something like.. I want to take a trip of a lifetime, get my dream job or be fittest and healthiest I can be. Write it down! (more…)

During my trip of a life time, in Maui, Hawaii 2010

In 2010, China was only one third of my trip of a lifetime. “Paradise on Earth” Hawaii and “Glamour- Heaven” Miami were next on my “all aspects considering” itinerary.  Some of the best presents made to us are the ones we give ourselves and even more importantly, we ourselves are the most deserving of our own kindness, investment and joy- and that my friends, was the initial idea to indulge in a trip of a lifetime.

Here I share my thought pattern in planning this successful and trouble free trip with you, so that maybe you will see that it’s really not difficult to live a dream. A dream holiday means different things to different people- windsurfing, swimming with dolphins, picking coconuts, sleeping on a hammock… “If you don’t know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else.” ~Lawrence J. Peter

Another ancient proverb (from China 😉 ) states “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” ~Lao-tzu. Your trip, or any other endeavour should begin with INSPIRATION, SELF-EMPOWEREMENT and DREAMING BIG!!!

Dear readers,

Something magical happened tonight. For the past several days I have hated being here in London, I have consistently got annoyed and sworn. On the weekend I resented having to get “dolled up” to go out clubbing, even though it was two of my best friends’ birthdays. I have been suffering with being weighed down by financial constraints and having my wings clipped by fate, keeping me in a country that is not my spiritual home, far away from doing things I enjoy and values that I like. And so, after so miserably failing to upkeep the loving kindness in my heart, I gave the opportunity to think of others. On the weekend, realised that I was not getting dolled up for myself, nor was it important, or where we were going. It was about my friends, their birthdays. Being there for people who needed my presence and making sure that they enjoy their night. As much as I felt lighter, I continued to enjoy thoroughly enjoy myself, letting my hair down, even though I no longer fit in with the drinking or clubbing lifestyle.
