I usually don't post anything personal here aside from, well, my entry for the "swimsuit competition" photos. Haha. But this time, I will try.
My old self wouldn't have imagined the simple feats I have accomplished today, in spite of the challenges that have come my way. Maybe I was named Carla, which means "strong", for a reason.
I was bullied, I became a bully. I laughed, I cried. I failed, I tried harder. I went rock bottom, I soared higher than ever.
I am not perfect. I will never be. And I don't try to be. I am Carla. I am me. And I am happy. Because I choose to be happy.
Seven years in travel blogging, ten years in teaching. No reason to complain. And as the cliche goes, "I am where I'm supposed to be." Traveling is love. Teaching is life.
34 years, and I've never been this happy in my life. Sometimes, it's in choosing to believe in the goodness of life rather than focusing on the negative which keeps me going.
Salamat. Mahal ko kayo lahat. 'Di lang halata, pramis.
Well, ang ending ng lahat ng 'to eh, may solo winter trip ako. Haha.
Monday - A friend booked a flight for me.
Tuesday - I applied for visa and was devastated when I almost didn't make it at the embassy.
Friday (noon) - My visa was approved so I hurriedly packed my bags.
Friday (afternoon) - I made it to the airport! Whew!
If it's meant to be, the universe will conspire to make it happen. Don't be takot. Laban lang! ❤
