The nature reminds me that I am alive. That I don’t just simply exist. That there’s a big world out there that I have yet to see, find, explore, conquer and experience. That I am a person with ambitions. That my dreams should not scare me regardless of how big they seem to be. That I should believe in my own capabilities. That I shall never depend my happiness and my success on other people. That there are many beautiful things awaiting for me. That I don’t need wealth to appreciate life. That finding my purpose is a continuous search as long as I live. That I should not seek for earthly things. That I am more than what people think of me. That I should go after the things that terrify me. That I know myself better than anyone else. That I am not my mistakes. That there are a ton of things to be thankful for, everyday. That there is a living God who loves me so much that He gave this world for me to live in.
Travelling is my own definition of being “young, wild and free”. These are my “you only live once(yolo)“ moments. I’ve always thought that staying at the same place for the rest of our lives is okay because there will always be familiarity, but no. Just like what they say, “life begins at the end of your comfort zone”. When I first step my feet on the sand, heard the chirping of the birds and the crashing waves of the sea, right then and there, I knew in my heart that I am not meant to stay at one place but rather wander, discover and explore. “Travelling is the only thing we can spend money on that will make us richer”, they say. That’s true. It made me richer in experience. Richer in knowledge. Richer in friends. Richer in memories to share. Richer in stories to tell.
