If your NOW is enough, what could possibly be the compelling reason for you to move? Is better always the case? When do you stop searching for better than best?

People would either procrastinate on what better things that lie ahead, or pursue the greatest as if it will never be achieved.

Usually there’s a strong force that drives a person to step out of his comfort zone and try to touch on the unthinkable. It could be a step closer to the dream or it could be a leap to oblivion.

 That time when you feel like disengaging from the world so you can try to reconnect with yourself.

That time when you feel like you lost yourself doing what you’ve always done.

Just like a farmer getting lost in the field, or the fisherman drowning in his own boat. 

I think I should take that long drive- where the sun peaks from the water and sets behind the rolling hills. 

 

I thank God for my eyes that I am able to witness Life’s beautiful miracles, just like the one I am watching right now… My baby touching her father’s face as she falls asleep. That moment you know that all your worries will be wiped away by those little hands. That moment you know that God is with you. That moment you know that you are loved.

When the time comes (and it will), and my kids and grandkids will need to create a Send Off compilation for me, I’d like them to use this song by Moonpools & Caterpillars as background music.🙂

My ‘happy place’ used to be a particular coffee shop where I enjoy my favorite cappuccino with a choco stick. Then, it became a bar in Makati which I prefer going in the mid afternoon just for their dessert – Chocolate Lava Cake. And then, it became a far away cliff where I would start with a relaxing long drive early in the morning and spend a relaxing midday with just my pen, paper, and the sun… Oh and of course, my chocolate & strawberry ice cream to cap off the trip. Now, I realize, my happy place is where I spent 30 years of my life… My home and my family- no sweet dessert needed.

I find morning walks soulful, especially when done with my partner in life. It is like falling in love again; with the roots of your being and with the person you chose to share your life with. Invite your partner for a walk; it tightens the bond. Do it early in the morning; that is when you are closest to God. Good morning! 🎈

Take time to write letters to your son/daughter- a letter for each birthday celebrated. When your child is old enough to read and understand, at 10 years old maybe, let him/her read your first set of birthday letters (from age 0-10). That way, he/she will know what your thoughts, feelings, happiness, and advise about life are during those years. Anyway, we are bound to forget a lot every year we age. Plus, it will be one of the sweetest and sincerest gifts you can give.🙂

To my little one: I am excited to meet you… hopefully, very soon.
