The Life I Want

Mafe Roig photography

“I want to live simply. I want to sit by the window when it rains and read books I’ll never be tested on. I want to paint because I want to, not because I’ve got something to prove. I want to listen to my body, fall asleep when the moon is high and wake up slowly, with no place to rush off to. I want not to be governed by money or clocks or any of the artificial restraints that humanity imposes on itself. I just want to be, boundless and infinite.” – Author Unknown

I read this last week when I was browsing Instagram and it clicked with me. When I read it, it was like if the person who wrote it climbed into my head, stole my thoughts and put them on paper in a way I couldn’t.

I think about a life like that every day. That is what I want and one of my ways to get it is through my photos. So I should do more of that!

It’s been kind of hectic lately so I’ve been away from my blog. But I’m very happy I found myself to write a little bit today again and share this awesome quote with all of you.

Hope you have an amazing week!


The Beauty of the Unexpected



This is a quote from HunterXHunter, one of my favorite anime 🙂

Sometimes in life, for wathever reason, we’ll get detoured from the path we think leads to our goals. But, what we may not be aware of, is that in that new path we might find something greater than what we were looking for in the first place.

So, let’s enjoy the detour! Let’s embrace the unexpected and live it to the fullest.


A Weight Off Your Shoulders



“And yet, now that years have passed, I recall it and wonder that it could distress me so much. It would be the same thing too with this trouble. Time will go by and I shall not mind about this either” – Levin, Anna Karerina, Chapter XI –


And that thing that used to worry you so much, that used to keep you up all night, is now long, long gone 🙂

Have a wonderful week!
