New Chapter

New Chapter

As the song ‘Listen’ by Beyonce goes, ‘the time has come for my dreams to be heard’, I am finally off to fulfill my dream to travel the world. Well, not technically the world but I’m pretty sure I’ll get there someday.

*Law of Attraction*

A few months ago, I decided put on hold my Master’s degree and about a month ago, I quit my corporate job. For everyone’s knowledge, this was my first job right off from college and had worked for the company for two and a half years. Our company may be small but we run side by side with the big dogs. The people who I have worked with became my second family, my confidant and my best of friends.  

They might not see it, but I am heartbroken to leave these great people behind. But I have a dream to catch on and It is already due that I am finally taking the risk of the unknown. I have decided to follow my dream to travel for a while, visiting different parts of the Philippines.

I guess you can say it wasn’t a terrific idea cause I wasn’t even earning that well and I’m depleting all of my savings just so I can travel, short term. Most of my family and friends don’t exactly agree in my decision. It’s a raw feeling that only those who experienced this kind of euphoria when travelling can truly understand my situation.

Now, I am jobless, (almost) broke, fatter and darker but I am happier. I am so much happier than I’ve ever been. I’m sure I will figure something out for a living, but I can’t be bothered right now as I am in my happy place.

Love, J.
