My education and life-style became a choice that was completely my own and not just a strict and strenuous process dictated by culture and family. I love music and playing the piano but I found my passion in sports. Sports for my family - and for most Greeks back then - was a bi-weekly, light activity that one could do to keep themselves active and healthy. Sports for me now, is a pursue to become the best I can be. I want to train and teach my body and soul how to overcome adversity and extend its physical limits. This is because going above and beyond my strength and endurance barriers brings waves of emotional, intellectual and physical delight that balance out the hard core mental activities. This daily process harmonizes my body, mind and soul and brings inner peace. I cannot imagine living without the scientific curiosity, creativity and collaborative spirit that lead me to the path of so many discoveries over the years! At the same time, life would be impossible without setting athletic goals and working systematically towards them.
This is my way to balance my body and mind.
I have come to the realization that finding your inner peace is a long, bumpy road that is always dynamic and never straightforward. It is unique to each one of us and for some, this road may never end or may never lead anywhere. I am grateful that during my journey, I have experienced so many cultures, ideas and life-styles, and I am currently surrounded by few, extraordinary, humble and well-rounded individuals strong enough to help me destruct and re-build my initial, sheltered world without letting the foundations completely collapse.
I hope that my bumpy road will keep unfolding and eventually get me to a meaningful place and help others find their own.
Keep exploring, never judge, always love!
See you out there!
