Posts Tagged ‘Self-empowerment’


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.

Together with my Master on my last day at the Yuntai Martial Arts School

In the last post, we covered a general idea of the key elements, impressions and elements of my one month kung fu trip China, but how did me experience truly affect me?

Maybe as I jot this down I will come to re-live some of the happiness I got to know there. (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!!!
