Random Thoughts of a Travel Bug

The Week That Was

This week marks my 10th year in the corporate world. I did not even think I will still be in this industry all these years considering the fact that 10 years ago, I have zero clue on what I am getting myself into.

But here I am, I may still have a lot—-and I mean a loooot—to learn about what I do for a living, but I am glad I was able to pull through. And I think that’s more than enough for a work anniversary gift (but, of course, still thinking of something to give myself for a decade (!) of a job well done).

The past week was not a walk in the park, I dreaded every single day because of all the pressure, side comments and the bad vibes I receive from others and from myself as well. It got to me so bad that when I was in my hotel room, I am incessantly thinking about all the other effective (and brutal, stupid, selfish) ways that I can skip adulting for this week.

The week went by not as bad as I expected and for that I have so many reasons to be grateful for because of these things that I have learned:

“If you doubt yourself, maybe you have to question your faith”

In my quest to be extra prepared for this week, I enrolled myself into some online trainings and this is one of the many takeaways that I have learned.

I have this issue for the longest time because even if I pray and ask prayers from others, my pessimistic side always wins, saying that I won’to make it and will just screw things up. This experience made me realize that I should always remind myself that my God won’t leave me and will always be there to catch me and make everything okay.

Work is Work. Nothing More, Nothing Less.

In this rat race, you don’t expect others to save you and be your ally, even if they tell you they are. You have to do it on your own and stand your ground.

Also, you have to always know that this “work-life balance” concept is there for a purpose. There are different intensities of commitment to work and you have to deal with the fact that you have your own “intensity” and it is never wrong.

Being Hard on Yourself Never Works

You only have yourself to be your ally. Never treat her bad by polluting her senses with all your nega talks and senseless scenarios. It will just make everything bad and you’ll just laugh at yourself by wasting all of your time worrying when in reality, it is not at all bad.

Doing Your Best is What Matters

If one slide was not explained thoughly or if that functionality did not work, don’t beat yourself up for it. Whatever trials and hiccups that you have to overcome, know that you have done your best and it is what matters. It will reflect and your clients will even commend you for it. So chill, girl.

Always Have Your Support System

We all know prayers work. But you also have to have that support system who will listen to your constant rants, who will pray for you and who will just give you that IG comment and nudge that you’ll be okay.

This week has been all kinds of stressful and I am just glad I was able to pull through. ✨


What It’s Like To Be in a Long Distance Relationship

Long distance relationship never works—
That’s how most of us see it. You will have to endure thousands of miles apart, have to celebrate special occasions via Skype or FB messenger dates, have to rely on your wifi connection so you can talk about how your day went while having to endure counting the days when you two will be together again.

It’s not easy. It will never be easy. But it’s manageable, especially if you both try to make it work, despite the distance, the homesickness and the fights you have to endure because you miss each other.
You may not always have your weekly dates together but knowing that somehow, someday, you’ll get to be in the same timezone, same country and in the same room together with your special someone makes everything easier.

Being in a long distance relationship is never easy, but it sure is worth it. ❤

Love Month Thoughts

When you love, you’ve got to give everything you’ve got.

I don’t know where I got that quote from, but I know it has served as an anchor every time I decide to give my heart to someone.

They all say, you have to save something for yourself so that when all else fails, you still got back up, you’re not empty and that you can still start a new.

But I guess, it really is different strokes for different folks. Because when I do, I am all out. I will give everything I have got, regardless and no matter what.

Loving someone has its perks and downfalls, like anything else.

Being in a relationship means building a life with someone, a life that you will carefully plan out together, there will be numerous times you have got to suck up your pride just for everything to work out, there will be countless moments you have to understand and compromise to your partner and buck loads of tears that you have to endure to keep everything at bay.

But being in a relationship also gives you a lot more reasons to wake up everyday and smile because you know you have someone who will be there for you, who will understand you and inspire you to be better no matter what, always.

I have always believed in love. And I know that what I have is real, it may hurt sometimes but the happiness it brings is all worth it. ❤

2016’s Looking Pretty Good

It’s the fourth day of the year 2016, I should be at work right now, but I’m stuck at home because I forgot my keys inside my room and I need it to open our gate door. 

So while I was trying to contemplate and try different tips, hacks and tricks found on the internet to open the locks, I thought of reflecting why was I given this kind of situation on the first working day of the year. 

I realized I need this time out to be able to reflect on my goals and plans for the year, one of which is to update this blog regularly, be healthier, travel more and make better choices. 

2016’s looking bright and I’m so ready for it.

Waking Up With A Brand New Heart

What if your dreams were a rerun of a certain experience that’s been haunting you for years already?

Waking up knowing and feeling that it still hurts. Reliving how it was so real and how it was once the reason why you felt what you felt for years.

It’s hard. And excruciatingly painful.

But you know what happens afterwards? When you’re in your rock bottom? When you’re at your lowest low? Life will just wake you up with signs, events and moments that will make you realize—though it may have once hurt you deeply—that it is also over and that this is the perfect time to begin again, because, today, there are no promises broken, goals unreached, future dreams planned, with someone who will just leave you at the end of the road, lost and clueless.

Because this time, you’re waking up from that bad dream, with a completely new heart very much equipped to take on life’s promise that everything will be better—it will be. Just open your eyes.
