live passionately

lovelife As I reflect on my path of life, I can say one thing with certainty- my philosophy has always been to attempt to use PASSION as the main ingredient in all that I do – work, cooking, running, my relationships with friends and family, etc- simply by adding a touch of spice to every idea and moment in life. ‘WHY?!’ you may ask and ‘where do you always get the energy to create an event out of nothing?’ My reply is simple: Our daily routine can become VERY monotonous whether we are wearing our hat of work, motherhood, singlehood- you name it… Hence, it is important to be CREATIVE, and simply add that magnificent touch of spice to all that we do- one day it may be sweet lavender, or.. bitter cardamom, and, at times bitter sweet canella (cinnamon)..! Wrapping up, I would like to share with you one of my favorite quotes by a much loved author and poet, Maya Angelou:
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

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!
