Life x Travel Diaries: 2017 – YEAR OF MY FIRSTS 😜❤

OH MY GOODNESS!

Fast forward to exactly 8 months after my previous post, I find myself in the middle of the earth, staying in on a Thursday night in my room, Sunset Lover playing in the background and just beginning to write again. To those wondering what happened well it is a long story but to make it short I am now overseas chasing my dreams.(Well, what are my dreams?) which will also be the reason why there will be no OOTD shots in this post. because I have not taken any! LOL 😎

Well, we’re already on the 2nd half of 2017 which I can also call my Year of Breakthrough and I have soooooo many firsts this year but  I’m telling you the major ones.

FIRST TO:

1. Travel outside the country with the family. ❤✈👪 (which deserves a separate post)

It was heck of a fun, eye opening, tiring but a memorable trip! 1 life tip, make sure to at least travel with your family. Nothing beats the experience! Trust me, you will become even more closer, get to know and love them even more. It doesn’t have to be try hard and well planned just go with the flow, have fun, learn the culture, detoxify and renew your energy.  Make the most of the bond with your family because these are the things in life we need to treasure most. It can just be pocket friendly also. Now, Where to next, Fam?

2. Travel solo. 🌏🏰(which deserves a separate post, again)

Mixed emotions rushed through my veins knowing that I will be traveling alone. Well, you gotta have tons of courage and guts to do that. I didn’t know how I pulled that off knowing that I was not able to condition myself to go to a country where no one knows my name. (chos), not knowing where to go, not even the language. (My nose bled because of the language barrier, what is Hello in Russian again?)   All I knew is that I had plane tickets and a hotel. I stayed in Armenia for a week, it’s a pretty cool place to learn history. I really enjoyed my me time there eating Armenian food and going to unique places. Thank God I made it back safely. 😁

3. Currently LDR 👫

The boyfie was sh😲cked by the time he knew I was gonna stay. Sorrrry, even I didn’t know we were gonna end up miles away. But if you’re in a healthy relationship there’s just no room for negativity and anxiety to grow. I don’t really put weight on the term because when you’re together, you’re together. Faith, trust, loyalty are present virtues but when God is the foundation you have no doubts. (Kasi kung mahal mo, bakit mo sasaktan? HAHAHA jk) It’s just that I’ve gotten used to him being there most of the time. You take that away and you could just wish teleportation was real. Anyway, thanks to the boyfie for ALWAYS supporting every small or drastic life decisions I make even if it means compromise, even if it means distance. Just know that your effort is appreciated. And, This won’t be long, right? 😉

4. Experience SNOOOW 🗻❄⛄

The hot weather where I am now makes me dream of the majestic snowy alps of Armenia once again. I miss the cold. Ugh. And the snow? it did not disappoint at all. It’s just like the movies. Speaking of which, We had a dog named Snow, I miss her too.

5. Living Independently 👧

Aaaaaaaaaah, the most undeniably, realest thing happening in my life right now. It is my first time to be away from home and everyone I know, cook for myself, talk to a stranger, enjoy solo rides, do laundry and groceries, make friends with other nationalities, explore hidden cafe spots.  And all these experiences helped me to get to know myself even more and what I want that sometimes I feel like actually living up to my blog’s name. It’s true what they say to live outside your comfort zone, easy to say hard to do. Because being outside your bubble is not glorious most of the time, so you strive, you grow, you learn and you prioritize and take care of yourself, and depend on God. At this time, I am still a bit uneasy but I know things will work out just fine because God is with me. He is my strength. He will never leave us nor forsake us. Rely on Him alone. Thank you Lord👆

Well, that is all for now. YAY. Wonder what the next half has in stored for me? EXCITING! ❤❤❤ #Positive #trustinginGodstiming  This is it pancit!😁  The future is now. Til’  my next blog post!

All the love & hope. xx 👄
