Utopia

I like being alone...I love the feeling...soothing thoughts...a world of reveries....a utopia not polluted with menial trivia of everydays humdrum existence.
Im lost in my own world these days...stressed would be an understatement...but this too shall pass...I recently resigned at work and it felt absolutely fantabulous...its just waiting the for the approval thats boring me..
In the meantime Im registering for my American Board exams to begin the first step of applying to the toughest surgery residency program out there to train me into becoming the best plastic surgeon I can be.
Ive also been reading alot this summer...my summer list was brimming with titles that I will continue to read through to early fall...
Im loving the Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini a raw and emotional story of a man who returns to his native Afghanistan still under Taliban rule to right a longstanding wrong and rescue his childhoods friend son..I cant wait for the movie adaptation thats due to be released this winter...

Also interestingly is the book "The spiral staircase; My climb out of darkness" by renowed neosprituallyreligious author Karen Armstrong who gives readers a stunningly poignant account about the nature of spiritual growth.



And I absolutely cannot cannot stop without mentioning Elisabeth Gilbert's memoirs 'Eat...Pray..Love' a lighthearted but deep account of recovery...discovery and spiritual soul searching...her exuberance and witty humour had me laughing out loud as I followed her journey across the lush backdrops of Italy..India and Bali and reinspired my belief that passion will always be your guiding light.

Well, there's nothing like a new beginning and something to look forward to in life. I guess that sometimes these are phases which we go through in life...where we have to figure things out...away from the rush and burden we carry on our shoulders...I can relate to you in the way that I also enjoy being alone, but sometimes you never know when some people just make you laugh and lighten up...forget your worries...fill you with positivity once again and that is what I believe everyone needs!

I'm really interested in the book "The Spiral Staircase"...I love the part where you mentioned spiritual growth..it's like there's so much to us that we don't know and not just other people...I just love your strong use of words:)

I love being alone too, looking back at things and looking forward at what you want to do, who you are and who you want to become, or simple relaxing and giving youself time off...

we are all deserving of that
