So for more than a month, I didn’t travel. And it feels good.
To be honest, I felt like my travel goals are shifting and from my previous long term travel experience, I’m seriously thinking of not traveling anymore.
I actually traveled to nourish my soul.. but instead, I received stress and discrimination.. But maybe this is just a phase, we’ll see. I still do want to change locations, and experience snow..
But I also have to be mindful of destination addiction. Although, at the present moment, I feel like not going anywhere. It takes getting sick in Malaysia, discrimination treatment in Singapore, and a fight with a friend in Thailand to make me not want to go travel anymore… thank you specially to my fair weather friends in the Philippines, that cured my travel addiction.
But then again, travel has it’s own rewards. I met people whom I won’t be able to meet if I didn’t travel.. like that monk who used to be a Pilot and now, eats once a day only and lives in the forest.
I need to strategize further and meet prospective clients. Otherwise, my 3rd world status will be exploited by those who pay peanuts : )))
I also need to remember, money is just one aspect of life.. There are people who have all the material richness, yet when you see their eyes, it’s full of hatred and sorrow.. To be honest, I feel like I’m becoming like them.. on the hatred and sorrow part.
How can peace be achieved if our own elite doesn’t know how to experience it… some of them actually makes profit in wars specially when the stock market is down.
So yeah as I’ve said, I’m not sure if I still wanna travel. I just want to work with my projects online, continue to earn money, invest them so it can grow exponentially..
And maybe if I earn enough, I can be offline permanently.. work in my garden, commune with nature, live and die peacefully.
Also, I get more love from my dogs and cats specially during feeding time. Also, I have wild birds as room mates who serve as my daily alarm clock.. I have decorated my own life, what more can I ask for.
Ultimately, while the world moves forward and the cycle of life continues, in the end, sometimes it doesn’t even matter..
