Back to Blog
It’s been a while I haven’t updated this blog. My last post was in May 2020. Somehow, in the era of video blogs and audio blogs, I still feel comfortable putting my thoughts in writing. Writing in a language that’s not my native has been a constant challenge; however, the mood to write due to personal situations has been the most significant challenge by far.
In the past two years, I have been struggling to find the purpose of my life after a major change in my long-term relationship. It worsened as the pandemic hit in the year 2020. I guess 2020 was a terrible year for many of us, regardless of where you were.
The pandemic hasn’t yet been over in 2021; however, my situation is improving. I make peace with myself and what had happened. I stand on the ground rooting back in my first hometown. I enjoy what I do for a living and I still have Dante next to me (he is still a kick ass awesome dog). I also meet amazing people along the way who have inspired me. Their life struggles have encouraged me to return to this blog.
Quoting Joyce Meyer, I am not where I want to be, but I am thankful that I am not where I used to be.
My first travel destination in 2021 was Bali (Indonesia). It was for business purposes, and the trip was another memorable one. I visited organisations that support marginal communities during the pandemic, from the community of people with disability to gender-based violence survivors.
Again, an eye-opening trip to stay positive and trust our capabilities to make our dreams a reality.
It sounds clichéd, but surviving in challenging circumstances would be hard without a positive perspective. I have been there. We deserve to feel sad, miserable, lost trusts and unlucky compared to others, but how long do we have to feel sorry for ourselves and be afraid of our capability to move forward?
I have several travel plans in the future that include scuba diving trips. It’s a goal to make it happens. Fingers crossed. Thank you for continue following my blog during its absence. I will return with new blog posts.
