When my to-do list is low, I take opportunity in the stillness of my brain to reflect on my blessings and take gratitude to people who have acted as fairies so I can be a fairy to other fairies so they can be fairies to others too.
Life has become (almost) beautiful, and contentment is almost achieved.. but then I see travel pictures and my curiousity to travel the world is there poking me again then I hear Steve Jobs in my head – never settle and always be hungry.. so I drop the unlimited rice. I have a killjoy mind sometimes.
And to keep myself on toiling so I can reach that ultimate travel fund, I keep these words of wisdom I got from around the internet and remind myself the goal of a beautiful life. For those who needs more inspiration, here’s more life and travel quotes.
Quote 1: Love those who love you when you have nothing to offer but company. The picture is taken in Antique, the place where my dad was born.
Quote 2: Live like there is no tomorrow, dream like you’ll live forever. This was in Palawan where I lived for 2 months this year.
Quote 3: The biggest lesson I’ve learned this year is that no one is really your friend or truly loves you until they’ve seen every dark shadow inside you.. and stayed.
The picture was taken in Sagada when I went last March. I really should plan to stay longer to that place next time.
Quote 4: A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
The picture is one of my favorites so I used it often.. it’s the great Himalayas.
Quote 5: Travel is a rebellion in it’s purest form. We follow our heart. We free ourselves of labels. We lose control willingly. We trade a role for reality. We love the unfamiliar. We trust strangers. We own only what we can carry. We search for better questions, not answers, we truly graduate. We, sometimes, choose never to come back.
Quote 6: when all the trees are cut, when all the animals are dead, when all the waters are poisoned, when all the air is unsafe to breath, only then you will discover.. you cannot eat money
Quote 7: when I was young, I was scared of the dark. Now when I see my electricity bill, I’m scared of the lights
Quote 8: You have permission to rest. You are not responsible for fixing everything that is broken. You do not have to try to make everyone happy. For now, take time for you. It’s time to replenish
Quote 9: Be soft, do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Take pride that even though the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place. The picture was from a friend from Austria.
Quote 10: The worst part about being strong is that no one ever asks if you are okay.
