Lahat ng bagay may pinagmumulan.
I've read somewhere that people embark on a journey for a reason. I won't say it in details but needless to say, I came to a point in my life where I felt lost, angry, sad, and disappointed - all at the same time. OVERWHELMED is an understatement of how I felt at that time. Honestly, I felt cheated because thingsss were taken from me, mainly my life. The past four years really just sucked the life out of me. I wanted to just stop and vanish. Evaporate. Give up.
Then it hit me, before I give up, why don't I give life the benefit of the doubt to show me if it is still worth the effort? Many walks along the streets of Roxas Boulevard, Quiapo and Binondo ensued. Then when I was asked to volunteer in our center, I heard about what happend 2000 years ago again and it was followed by an opening of a heart that's numb. That clinched the deal for me. It's like I had a sudden jolt to start making up for the lost four years of my life and start living like the happy blessed person that I am.
From then on, I decided to choose life. Which started by a heart that's not afraid to go after what it wants. After all, we were not given a spirit of fear.
Here's a list of things that I decide I will do:
1. TRAVEL. A lot.
2. Take lots of great pictures (I don't aim to be Ms. Best Photography or what, just take really good portraits of memories and stories)
3. Cook lotsa really delicious food. :)
4. Start an online something (blog, vlog, or any of their variants)
5. Master how to play my favorite musical instruments.
There's my list. I do hope that this prinsesa-on-the-go will be able to do these things while pursuing her medical career. Tough, yes. But isn't it exciting? ;)
Now, without further adieu, I am going to start this journey with a special place that captured my heart two years ago...
