Simplicity

No Expectations

When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.

— Paulo Coelho

Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.

Freedom (n.): To ask nothing. To expect nothing. To depend on nothing.

Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything
that makes you smile.

I laugh because I must not cry, that is all, that is all.

Fitness

I’m often asked what I think about as I run. Usually the people who ask this have never run long distances themselves. I always ponder the question. What exactly do I think about when I’m running? I don’t have a clue.

What I’ve enjoyed most, though, is meeting people who have a real interest in food and sharing ideas with them. Good food is a global thing and I find that there is always something new and amazing to learn – I love it!

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.

Music

Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.
