Bidding May Goodbye

I’ve been watching several travel blogs lately and to be honest, I’m kinda feeling jealous.

I know I have mentioned several times in this blog that I’m a lazy traveler and would only travel to go to a beach and lie down the whole day and live a fancy life of Eat. Sleep. Beach. Repeat.

But lately, I just had this funny feeling of jealousy about travelers seeing different things and places everyday. Maybe their VLOGs are just too nice and inspiringย  that’s why I started having this itch to travel.

If you have been a long time reader, you might also say now how ungrateful and unsatisfied of a b*+ch I am by living a life in paradise (a.ka. Maldives) and still complaining about things that I don’t get.

Well, lately, paradise hasn’t been too paradise-y at all. If you haven’t been to this place, you might think we are having a nice island life here with booze and bon fire every night, listening to Bob Marley’s music and such fun stuff as one can see in movies. But not really. Lately, the energy has just been so negative and happiness is scarce.

Two days ago, facebook reminded me of a status that I have posted several years ago:

How we spend our days, is of course, how we spend our lives.

~Annie Dillard

 

And really, looking at how life’s going on lately, I am now asking myself what kind of life am I living. But as much as I want to complain, I only have myself to blame. I chose this life. I chose to be here.

The problem of writing the title first before the content is a major issue. Now I have deviated from what I really intended to write. But anyway.

P.S. My artworks are world class :p

  1. isn’t that life – we start somewhere thinking something will happen this and that way, and we end up in totally different unimagined situation…

    also, I also get jealous (sometimes) of those who are travelling too much ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. What you’re feeling right now is life’s way of saying, it’s time get out of your comfort zone and start chasing your heart’s desire! ๐Ÿ˜˜

      1. Sabi na eh. Naku, ang hirap pa naman mag draw using mouse. Kaya bilib ako sa mga gawa mo. Heheh..

        Ayaw mo i-try mag travel just like sa mga napapanood mo? Para naman maiba at makalabas ka sa comfort zone mo.

          Alam mo, kaya ko pinapanood yun si Ave, kasi super natural ng mga vids nya na kahit yung pagpila at pakikipagsiksikan niya ay kasama at pagtulog sa airport at iyon yung ayaw ko HAHAHA yung makipagsiksikan para makasakay ng barko kaya ayaw ko magtravel dahil nakakapagod

  3. As I was reading yung first few lines ng post mo and read that you’re living in Maldives, on my mind I was saying, “wow ang ganda ng life mo gurl!” pero reading the rest of the lines, nasabi ko, ay dapat talaga hindi nagjujudge eh. Hahaha. Living in Maldives may sound like a paradise indeed pero syempre kami na hindi naman talaga nakatira dyan, wouldn’t know how it really is. Hehe.

    Also, traveling sometimes means discomfort din kasi. Magkakambal sila. Haha. Kahit ako nga, napapagod at naiinis talaga ako sa mga mahabang byahe lalo na kung land trip. Hahaha! pero go lang ng go. Ginusto ko eh! LOL

  4. Ganyan din ako magsulat. Madalas title muna bago content. Haha. Yeah minsan may mga bagay na gusto natin itigil kasi parang walanh katuturan. Kaso lang sabi mo nga, ito ang pinili natin, dito na din tayo masaya kaya lilipas din ang feeling basura na yan at magiging okay na ulit. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. “the grass is greener on the other side”.. but what others don’t realize, the grass is always greener where it’s watered. Diligan po natin, baka natutuyuan na.

    We perceive a place differently depending on the purpose. You’re in Maldives for work, not for pleasure. Of course, you see it as a place of work. You obviously want something more because you want to see Maldives differently. I hope you get a chance to see it through other people’s eyes. And when you get a chance, maybe a change of scenery wouldn’t hurt. Mountain-ranges perhaps. ๐Ÿ˜›
