Lessons from Luna (my furry friend)



My Luna celebrates six glorious years of life today. And I am rejoicing every ounce of love that she showers me with every day. Life lessons too.

Baby Luna stole my heart the moment I laid eyes on her as a rescue puppy. She has since grown from a most adorable fluffy snow ball into a beautiful lady who teaches me the true essence of life each day.

Here’s what I’ve learnt from my Lunatic:

  1. Wake up with a smile.
  2. Greet everyone you see-despite their size- with enthusiasm.
  3. Turn your walk into an experience of the senses- smell the daisies, taste the morning mist..
  4. Take beauty naps often.
  5. Don’t be intimidated by your height. Quite simply, look up!
  6. Ask for whatever you set your mind on. What’s the worst thing they will say to you? No?


Paws up my Luna and thank you for all the smiles, love, happiness and LUNAtic moments! C’est la vie after all, no?!


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!
