live and love passionately
‘Live and love passionately’ is my motto for 2013. As I recall the wise words of Olympia Dukakis that ‘there are no rehearsals in life… this is the real thing!’ I feel that we owe it to ourselves to at least try our best to live a meaningful life and enjoy life to the fullest.
On that note, and reflecting on this year’s motto, I have come across the following quote today by Mary Jean Irion:
‘Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in the quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.’

About Mahi S

I was born on the island of Cyprus in 1971. For years, I lived the life of a nomad: I grew up in the Arab Gulf, finished high school in Cyprus, then went to the U.S. for five remarkable, life-changing years of study and work in public relations. With every change of home, I was confronted with the challenge of separation and the issue of identity, but ultimately the rewarding experience of interacting with people of different cultures has informed my life ever since. It inspired me to create an ideal setting wherever I found myself, to live meaningfully and use passion as the main ingredient in my life. I run to keep myself motivated and to fire the kind of creative thinking that keeps me balanced and content. But it’s also an ongoing challenge: since 1999, I have completed 17 half-marathons, which I try to run in a different city every time. In fact, running and travel are the two pillars of my life philosophy: “Travel is fascinating, whether it’s about a series of mesmerizing destinations or a journey within myself”. “Running keeps me sane, motivated and focused!” Right now, I am focusing on promoting my new book, ‘A squirrel in your kitchen’ an e-cookbook with quick, easy and delicious recipes (and anecdotes) from dearest friends around the world. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AYXN500. I am also hoping to experience the fascinating challenge of a full marathon in 2016; in Athens or New York. We’ll see!

    • E quando se curam as pessoas, as loas vão direitinhas para a Nossa Senhora, haiubtalmente a de Fátima, sem desprimor para as restantes. Médico serve para isso mesmo, ser o cepo das marradas ou ser preterido pela Santidade. Vá lá que mesmo assim ainda vai caindo uns queijitos, umas garrafas de tinto …
