‘I have never been a millionaire, but I have enjoyed a great meal, a crackling fire, a glorious sunset, a walk with a friend, a hug from a child, a cup of soup, a kiss behind the ear. There are plenty of life’s tiny delights for all of us.’ – Jack Anthony
When life presents us with a series of predicaments and challenges, we sometimes tend to focus on just those things. Before we know it, we get caught up in an avalanche of thoughts and it’s not long before stress takes over our life. It is important to remind ourselves that life is laced with simple pleasures and special moments worth enjoying. Hence, we should simply savor the journey and just remember that ‘if you love life, life will love you right back.’
This photo was taken at a truly serene spot in my Mediterranean little corner, where I simply enjoyed silence in all its glory along with the comforting sound of waves… And during that silence is when life transmits its messages to each one of us…

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. I am also hoping to experience the fascinating challenge of a full marathon in 2016; in Athens or New York. We’ll see!
