Dreaming I’m near the ocean, wishing I was. The upside is, I won’t bother filing leaves, considering if it’ll be approved or what not. Basically, everywhere with internet connection is my office. I conquer the world in shorts and sneakers. I do have to deal with shitty and unstable service once in a while, but what is that compared to a miserable workspace, right?
I’m still in this point in my life where I’m trying to sort everything out, we all gotta start somewhere. I’m still adjusting with my current struggles, unlike before I would wake up, take a quick bath, get ready, cry and try to talk myself in to not going to work (true story) and going to work anyway. But now, I have to actually manage my time, dedicate a time for work – including planning where to work if the house gets too noisy, I get paid less too, but to be honest, I wouldn’t trade this kind of “problem” to going back to a job that reminds so much of my time and of my life.
I would be taking a break from traveling which I’ve already mentioned in my previous blog. It’s not as if I won’t travel any less, my main goal is to travel back to places I’ve been to, get to know the culture and the people more. At the top of my head, Baler is my priority, Catanduanes is next or maybe Ilocos or Davao, I’ve yet to actually think about that. I just feel like as much as I would love to plan to the tiniest detail, I shouldn’t. And I’m guessing that’s a good thing.
I’m blessed to be surrounded by people who travel a lot, it gives me an idea of which route to take. Do I want to travel long term around South East Asia? Or South America, maybe. Where do I want to start. A good friend of mine would – in her loving and motherly way would give me tips and ideas. And traveling around the world now seems like within arms reach. But, I feel like that’s not something I wanna pursue for now. I’m not closing any doors for that possibility, I’m just holding it off. Which is the true beauty of life, we all have our lives ahead of us yet we’re all caught up trying to prepare for the future that we’re no longer living in the present. I’m not saying preparing for the future is a bad thing, I’m saying being obsessed with it is what makes it bad. Ask yourself if you’re living in the now.
