L&L

"Surround yourself only with people who love, inspire, 
and encourage you as a person." 
- Mama Zara


L for Love, L for Louise, L for Laura... L squared. Double the trouble, double the fun!

Everybody goes through troubles in their lives, things that people wouldn't even begin to guess are happening. Life manages to throw you some pretty unbelievable hurdles sometimes, like you're starring in your very own movie. Sometimes we are forced to face terrible situations that just come crashing down on you for no honest fair reason but I've learned the best way to deal with it all is to remain positive. 'Thinking positive isn't about expecting the best to happen every time, but accepting that what happens is the best for this moment'. And it definitely helps to have a partner in crime to support you when times get rough, someone to remind you to remain positive or simply to take your mind off of it. And when times are great they are there to share the laughter and make the moment that much better.

THE NEW LAND

"The future has many names. For the weak, it's unattainable. 
For the fearful, it's unknown. For the bold, it's ideal." 
- Victor Hugo

 
The kingdom of Middle-earth; you don't have to be a Lord of the Rings nor Hobbit fan to be completely mesmerised and obsessed beyond speakable words when faced with the pulsating beauty that this land possesses. To stand before the grand physique of Mother Nature, being bold is an understatement. To stand before all that she is, brings out all that you are. Do not be weak, do not be fearful, embrace all that is around you, and embrace all that you are.

2AM

"Lit through the darkness at 1:58"
- Taylor Swift


3/7/15 2:00am and Perth was concealed under an eerie cover of fog. I was unable to grasp the truth that I was still in the same city. Wanderlust rushing through my veins, my eyes were like a child's once again as my heart beat in absolute awe. '2am's were made for poets, lovers, writers, visionaries, photographers, painters, over thinkers, silent seekers, these are my favourite hours.' - Tulisan Manda

Spontaneous late night adventures is what I live for, endless drives, late night wanders in a park, swinging in the dark, lying in the grass and staring up at the universe, even just going to a 24 hour food place and pigging out. Late night adventures with the best people. A blank mind and open heart with nothing but good vibes and good company.

THE FIGHTER

"You must have complete determination. The worst opponent you can come across is one
 whose aim has become an obsession. For instance, if a man has decided that he is going to bite off
 your nose no matter what happens to him in the process, the chances are he will succeed in doing it.
 He may be severely beaten up, too, but that will not stop him from carrying out his objective. 
That is the real fighter." - Bruce Lee


A few weeks ago I was actually MIA from the world recovering from a recent surgery to remove a cyst. I would have never known about it if not for the escalated abnormal back-pain, so for those who don't feel 100%, listen to your body and go get things checked out. Sadly I doubt you'll listen because I too am very much guilty of brushing things aside; I've brushed aside my constant back pain for more than 5 years now until I finally gave in and got it checked out. I am blessed that after this surgery I am actually healthier than before (with just a few scars as reminders), but not every ignorant person is so lucky, so I re-emphasise: listen to your body.
