Simplicity of Life

Posted on 14 May 2010 by Liza Mae V.

I have climbed mountains, jumped islands, and swam in fresh water. I’ve never quite experienced the world like this and it is simply amazing.

A few months ago I was drowning in numbers at my cubicle, counting minutes until 5pm, and worked myself to exhaustion.

Who would have thought my life would change so drastically?

I was drinking coffee from Timmies costing $1.50, now I am drinking fresh coconut juice or even better mango shakes for less than $0.50. Who wouldn’t want to trade their life for this life I am currently savoring?

Many seem to delude themselves into believing that they need millions to enjoy life but what I’ve been experiencing is that a dollar can stretch a long way. It is not about how much money you make, but how far you can make your money work for you.

What is the point of making so much money when you don’t know what you are going to use it for? Our societies need for more is deceptive and dubious. We already have everything we need, we just WANT more but ask yourself, why is there that need?

A simple life goes a long way. Try living it.

thoughts vs. feelings

Posted on 04 May 2010 by Liza Mae V.

The first days of my vacation were pretty awesome and filled with many things to do but I realized that it just hindered my feelings for him. Even as I was doing things that I loved doing, he was always on my mind. As I climbed the mountain, I thought of how much fun it would be if he were here and thoughts like that kept going through my mind. As I jumped on the Jeepney, I thought he would think this was an adventure. As I explored the beaches, I thought how he would love to be here. As I sat and drank from a fresh coconut just picked from the tree, I thought how much he loved coconuts and that was his favorite thing in the world. All these things made me realize how much I missed his presence and also how much he would love this place I am from, the Philippines. That was my reason for staying longer so that he can come here and see it for himself but I don’t know how long I can live without him. Extending my stay for another 5-6 weeks seems like eternity. I can keep myself occupied and find things to do but I am home sick, for my home is where my heart is. I never of thought I would get this feeling while I was here but love is a crazy thing. It makes you feel things you have never felt or thought you would feel or do.
