12 Things I learned in 2012

Sometimes it’s okay if the only thing you do today is breathe. Self-love and self-loathing are constant, bickering bedfellows. If utilized correctly, both keep you moving forward. The universe doesn’t hand you anything you can’t handle. Others opinions will always be there. In every city, from job to job, they are just opinions, they have as much weight as we give them.

On The Plane Home

This extract from the on-board magazine is attributed to Loren Eisley: “The journey is difficult, long, sometimes impossible. Even so, I know few people who have let these difficulties stop them. We enter the world without knowing for sure what happened in the past, what consequences this has brought us, and what the future may have in store for us. “We shall try to travel as far as we can. But looking at the landscape around us, we realize that it won’t be possible to know and learn everything. ”So what remains is for us to remember all about our journey so that we can tell stories. “To our children …
