Hey wonderful human, Welcome to my world and now yours too. I wanted to create a space where I could share my musings on wellbeing, life, creativity, trailblazing and generally, all things I feel deeply passionate about.

With the aim of inspiring, educating and supporting you.

Saima xx 

'There is a time for being ahead, a time for being behind; a time for being in motion, a time for being at rest; a time for being vigorous, a time for being exhausted; a time for being safe, a time for being in danger. The Master sees things as they are, without trying to control them. She lets them go their own way and resides at the center of the circle.'

-Lao Tzu

 

An excerpt from The Fifth Mountain, Paulo Coelho

"Why dost thou cling fast to an existence so short and so filled with suffering? What is the meaning of thy struggle?"
   
The man who did not know how to answer this question would resign himself, while another, one who sought a meaning to existence, feeling that God had been unjust, would challenge his destiny. It was at this moment that fire of a different type descended from the heavens-- not the fire that kills but the kind that tears down ancient walls and imparts to each human being his true responsibilities. Cowards never allow their hearts to blaze with this fire; all they desire is for the changed situation to quickly return to what it was before, so they can go on living their lives and thinking in their customary way. The brave, however, set a fire to which was old and, even at the cost of great internal suffering, abandon everything, including God, and continue onward.
    “The brave are always stubborn.” 
    From heaven, God smiles contentedly, for it was this that He desired, that each person take into his hands the responsibility for his own life. For, in the final analysis, He had given His children the greatest of all gifts; the capacity to choose and determine their acts.
