Since it’s Straya day, I looked back and reminisce the vacation I had last July 2015. Let me share with you some life thoughts accompanied by the pictures of the places I’ve been and the things I did.
Note: I will let the pictures do the talking so it will be a one-sentence-life-thought challenge.
Let Your Light Shine.
In life, we should see dark days as an opportunity to shine brighter.
Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge are more stunning at night! Date night with a glass of wine would be lovelier. So romantic.
Disconnect to Reconnect.
Sometimes we just need to have a ‘ME-time’ in order to connect with ourselves and to the world.
Bondi, Manly and Surfers Paradise. These beaches let me had a taste of Summer on a Winter. Most of the time, I explored Oz alone because my relatives have work. It’s cool, I enjoyed every moment I had getting to know myself better.
Like a child, have more fun, be silly, and be delighted in everything.
When I was in Sydney, I went to Luna Park with my nephew. That definitely made me a Certified Aussie kid! 😉 And in Brisbane, I attended ‘Hunter’s 5th birthday party’. Funny, right? But I really had fun with kids! I felt like we’re all the same age.
Be courageous and know that YOU ARE CAPABLE OF SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE!
I said this before. ‘I believe no one is ever ready to do anything. No matter how prepared you are, there will still be a space for anxiety. So why delay or wait for the perfect time? Most of the awesome moments in our lives happen when we let go and let our instinct guide us. I am no good in living life to the fullest; I just do what I want to do and what makes me happy. It’s also exciting to dare yourself to do the ‘impossible’ thing. You don’t need to impress other people; you just need to impress oneself. If you make an impact or inspire others, well that’s a bonus.‘
On my 2nd day in Australia, I climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It was really an accomplishment for I have a fear of heights! (I don’t even ride a roller coaster! Well, only once in Universal Studios Singapore- a favor I did for a friend.)
I thought climbing the bridge would already make my trip a memorable one. Little did I know that I would have that great amount of COURAGE to go SKYDIVING! I booked it two days before my flight back to the Philippines so I can’t back out. I told myself ‘IT’S NOW or NEVER’ and ‘GO BIG or GO HOME’. And, I did it a day before my 25th birthday (July 30)!!! Best Birthday Gift Ever! It was TOTALLY UNFORGETTABLE!
And literally, MY HIGHEST ACHIEVEMENT!
You’re Always Home.
Be at peace and enjoy the journey for in every step we take leads us to where we are supposed to be.
I don’t know why but Australia felt like home. I don’t know when will I be back again. Hopefully, soon. But for now, I’m just grateful for everything that happened- the experiences I had, the lessons I learned, and the beautiful souls I met.
Lots of Love,
P.S. I know it’s almost 2am, 27th of January now in Australia. Maybe my greeting doesn’t count. But still 25th of January here in PH. (3 hours time difference) 😉
