Hold your fire

Have you felt the sudden urge to chase something you fell instantly in love with but could not?

Waiting for something can often be a sticky situation. You start out being hopeful of the ultimate product, trying to enact your thoughts and ideas in that direction to see how you would change. You feel a warm breeze in your heart that tells you that this is it, this is the one thing that would make you feel complete again – am I the only one who identifies this situation to the chills I get waiting for the new iPhone to hit the market?

In the midst of all that positivity, you might suddenly start to fear the change.  What if it changes too much? What if it doesn’t change at all? What if I miss my shot? Would I have a second chance? Does it even matter anymore?

Yet the one thing that doesn’t change is your desire, the need to get what you crave for does not diminish. It could potentially manifest within you and drive you further. So hang in there! Wait for the right moment. The wait is painful yes; but if its’ worth it, it would be a KISS song- a sweet pain.

Take your shot when the time is right, and it might just blow your mind away, Some shots are worth the wait.

Puff and stuff – Pufnstuf

In the early 1400-1000 BC tobacco was commonly used as an entheogen in trade agreements. Large amount of tobacco was carried in pouches and smokes in peace pipes during ceremonious events. This symbolizes a sealed deal between two parties. In times of war, smoking was also sometimes perceived to be a form of truce between two different armed forces. The Christmas truce was indeed a great example of this act between the German and British soldiers. The unofficial ceasefire took place a week before Christmas along the Western Front where soldiers exchanges greetings and cigarette.

Tobacco was sometimes even use to symbolize the maturation into adulthood. It is ofern believed that tobacco is a gift from the creator and the smoke exhalation signifies ones prayer to the creator. Although this notion seems a little stray from most people’s reason for smoking these days, it could just be the origin of how smoking among adults gained its popularity.

Of dreams and desires

DSC_0024If one thing I know, I’m following my dream, I’m watching where it takes me and who I become.

Being able to listen to your inner voice is a blessing and curse in my opinion. Of course it takes the extra effort as well to follow what your heart’s deepest desires; but a strong dream embraces a tiny part of your soul within it. Every little dream that gets destroyed or rather buried hangs on to a piece of you, a memory, a time when that is all you ever wanted.DSC_0094The impulse to follow your dreams is a choice we make intuitively. The naïve little demon then pushes and prances around as it takes over your thoughts. Everything that gets thrown your way gets added to the puzzle, the puzzle that could potentially bring you down real soon but you just don’t know it yet.

DSC_0017We give up our hopes and dreams for multiple reasons. A reason that may seem trivial at some point soon becomes unbearable forcing us to lose all hope. But hope in most cases is never lost, it’s only forgotten. There is always hope in the world, for as long as you breathe there shall be a glimmer of hope for every one of your dreams. It all boils down to how snug of stitch you would need to escape from. Set your problems free, take your time and find the needle in the haystack – DSC_0008well if it ever was worth the trouble that is, we all know how messy that could get.

All you have to do is have a dream.

So, make a wish – do you have it? Now believe it.
