251: 100 Days Of Happiness

Has anyone of you tried the 100 Days of Happiness Challenge? I have seen this #100DaysOfHappiness tag in my Facebook feed but never really paid attention to it because heck, I thought is it really necessary? Plus, I sort of doubt myself completing it just because I'm a bit forgetful. So yeah, when I saw the challenge, checked it out, and then I realized that nope, that's not going to happen to me. Yeah, so all is forgotten until I see my friend had been posting hers in Instagram every single day.

Her intention was of course not to spam but rather keep track of it. I was really curious about how she was progressing, so I thought to check her Instagram profile. There it was her progress in the challenge.

After checking it out, I realized that it make sense to do it. I think what really got me to join the challenge is because in the end of the day -- even how horrible my day was -- I would look back on what moment I really felt happy about.

So yeah, I would definitely recommend to do it. I recommend it because it's good for our soul.

Check out my progress on my Instagram!

250: I am Traveling Alone!

I'm Traveling Alone!
On my last entry: take me to the beach, I have ranted about being so stressed out and how much I needed some space because of all this real-life pressures that has been going on. Out of boredom that night, I started just browsing places where to go and before I knew it I am bound to Boracay this May.

The funny thing is I got myself book without any plans, and I actually feel good about it. You see, it has always been my plan to travel alone but I was just delaying because I didn't like the uncertainty of going on my own. I know others would think it's crazy, but I have read a few blog entries who actually have traveled alone and even recommended it (read: here, here). Plus, my friend also went to Korea alone and encouraged me to do it.

If you ask me what's my reason why I want to travel alone it's because I want to get to know myself better. I have been doing things alone, going to places (albeit locally) just by myself and realized that I am comfortable without a companion. It also feels good because I am able to think clearly of the things that I am doing. I thought why not try to do it for a few days?

Right now, I was looking for places to stay, and what to do and budge my funds. I am glad that I am progressing. I'm actually very excited! Seriously, thinking about it, makes me feel so liberated. I'll try to get to know some locals and some visiting tourists there. I'll pray for a very productive vacation and a very wonderful trip.

248: Take me to the Beach

In one of my bucket list for this 2014, I've planned to be able to go to a beach alone. The reason why I chose the beach is because it was always my go to place for relaxing. I'm particular to sunset, and the sound of the waves dancing on the shore.I'm not sure why, but the combination of this two just relaxes the hell out of me.

The past few days had been really taxing. First, there's the issue at home. I do not really want to dwell on the problems at home because I guess everyone has it. It's just that it has been really stressing lately. But the only thing that really gets me is when I see my mother gets so affected with the family issue.

Man, it breaks my heart to see my mom cry. I find it so cheesy and uncomfortable comforting people. I'm not really used to it. But seeing my mother cry just pulls the strings on my heart. There would be moments that when I console my mom, and embrace her I realized how much I love her. I think I could not love her more than I could love anyone in this world.

I'm not really sure why some people takes the people they love for granted? Or why do people hurt the people they 'love'? It's just so ironic and so cruel. I'm not sure but for the life of me, I've never have hurt anyone I have ever loved. I mean, if I can, I just want to make them happy. That's it. I'm not sure why others would drag the people they love for unnecessary drama, or say something so cruel to hurt them. It's weird, it's crazy!

Anyway, the second reason, is because I want a space for me to be able to write. I've been writing lately but the toxicity of the pressure that I have in my job, the goals I have to aim, my obligations just messes up on my mind. I'm finding it hard to write without being distracted.

HAHAHA, okay, I know you guys have read that most of my post are always 'encouraging', 'brave', or 'inspiring', but I hope you do not mind my almost depressing entry. I just need a breather. I'm still hanging in there and far from losing my sanity, but like the obligatory Cate-Blanchett-Blue-Jasmine .GIF, I (just) need some space. 'mkay?
