Follow your heart…


How many times has the world around you believed in you, or seen you beyond your fears and your doubts?

I am sure you lost count at some point, or your fears are still holding you back or maybe that little voice within  has not given up  and it’s still reminding you that you can start from where you are.

For me this was the year to start : something, anything (OK, I didn’t start until mid year 🙂 ). The whole idea was to find a new hobby something to keep me on toes, to make my dreams more interesting, wilder and basically move beyond my comfort zone.

My heart found something, but my head was too afraid to align with it. These are the questions that typically ran through my head: are you you ready, are you sure this is it, what will people think,what of the publicity that will come with it, will you survive through it? Answer to all these: let it go Rael, you don’t have to.

Got to admit that I have convinced myself a million times, tried to do new things here and there, but gave up a long the way.

I prayed and asked God for one thing, to take it away from me! I mean, why the pressure? But then, the universe conspired with my heart, friends and everything around me.

Voila! She’s a Tomboy came to be.

I don’t know where this journey will take me, all I can do, I am doing with everything that I have.  One thing am sure of is that the fruits will be amazing. Maybe a new place, new friends , be an inspiration to someone…I could go on.

The best part is that my dreams have become more interesting, wilder and there is something better to look forward to every day. The support from family, friends and followers is just amazing.

So, go ahead, throw you dreams into space. You will be glad you did it…





Thank you for being part of the journey.

Happy holidays
