To love or not to love... that is the question.

This post really moved me. It is raw, honest and something everyone can relate to. Natasja's last paragraph says it all and leave me questioning myself and the path I have taken in life... the decisions I have made and the trust I have placed in others.

"You open yourself wide to another knowing full well that the other may rip out your HEART ….you go into relationships with the full knowledge of the probability of being hurt. And you go in with your defence’s lowered, and your HEART, which has been put together again and again, fully vulnerable."

Thanks for sharing this and I what I think is most important it ... you cannot go through life without experiencing love. It ignites you... it drives you ... sometimes it will even hurt you .... but it is all worth it in the end.

For anyone who is interested ... this is really a good read ...

I choose to LOVE.

How important is love to you?


  1. This is beautiful and definitely made me think. I do believe this goes way beyond a romantic relationship. There is also love between a parent and child, siblings, friends etc. As I get older I am realizing more and more that it is not about the quantity of relationships that we have, but the quality. I rather have five close friends than twenty acquaintances. Once I adopted this mindset, my relationships grew stronger and as a result I grew stronger.

    Love is indeed definitely worth it!

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season. Honestly living in Trinidad limits your experiences of the changing seasons and seeing how spring turns to summer to fall and then winter. All I have is endless summer greenery. All I have is the constant warm weather and lush green rain forests.

So I have been living vicariously through other blog admiring the Fall pictures and sometimes questioning if it is really true. Then I had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and got to spend the day just lying on a beach and soaking in the sun. So I decided to give you all my version of Fall. And see what we get during the Fall Season.


 I visited a beach house in Blanchisseuse Beach and it was attached to 3 different bays. It was fun just splashing in the waves, and fun exploring each bay in the warming sun.

This was a bird's eye view of the bay that had clear green water and little watery caves to hide under. My son really liked…

Hate is a strong word.

When you live on a small island like I do in Trinidad, you really do not want to be too outspoken about terrible things happening to someone you know, because it is almost as if you are talking about it happening in your own backyard. But the fact is, terrible things do happen and unfortunately it sometimes happen to people you know or people who you cannot ignore.

In the last month there was a unforgettable incident of a little girl being attacked and physically taken advantage of ... and this rocked out entire community. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, granddaughters and friends were really disturbed about the attack... because you do feel as if it has happened in your back yard! For a few weeks no one felt safe in their own homes and everyone was whispering about the ever changing rumors of the whereabouts of a man, who manage to physically hurt 1 and mentally hurt 100s.

In my heart I do feel sorry for the young girl and pray that through God, family and friends she can be a su…
