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.
