What’s the best thing to do on your birthday?

Pack your bag and travel to a place you’ve never been to before.

For one day. Even just for one day, stay away from anything that causes you stress. For one day, live like it’s your last day on earth. Eat whatever you want. Do whatever makes you happy.

That’s what I’d do. 🍻😘

*This is a scheduled post. I am currently somewhere I’ve never been to, eating whatever I want, staying away from stress, living like it’s my last day on earth and doing whatever makes me happy. Have an awesome day!*

A Strong Heart

Only those with a strong heart can make their dreams come true.


The first time I decided to travel on my own, I was terrified. I was excited too but more than anything I was scared. I have never done it before. What if I get lost? How will I get from one place to another?

I was anxious. I had a lot of questions. As excited as I was, there was a point when I just didn’t want to go anymore. I remembered days before I have to leave (my bag was packed, plane ticket ready and reservations booked), i sat on my bed and trying to encourage myself. 

I could still remember my heart hammering with anxiety. Even while on the plane, I still have doubts about myself. I told myself that I can do it. I have to do it for myself. And i did. 

That was five years ago. Here I am now planning another trip to a place I’ve never been to before. There are moments when I find myself thinking, what if I don’t go? But I know that I will still go because I have realized long ago that I have to be strong because only I can make my dreams come true.

Flight Delays and Life Realizations

I am writing this as I sit at the almost crowded airport waiting lounge. I am waiting for a flight that should have flown almost half an hour ago and is not expected to fly until three hours from now. This is supposedly the first day of an epic adventure but its started with an epic fail.

As I sit here and look at the people around me, I can’t help but think how this is so much like life in general. No matter how much you plan and how much you prepare, there will be glitches and bumps along the way. You can sit back and accept it or you can choose to throw a tantrum and scream your heart out.

At least I got this view.

But let’s face it. You can scream all you want but if that plane is not ready to take off, what can you do? Sometimes you just have to accept that some things are really beyond your control. Sometimes you have to accept that some things are not meant to take off yet. It’s just not the right time yet.

That plane will fly when it’s ready. Just sit back and make the best out of it. Or get your money back.
