Refreshed heart, mind and soul
I went out of town not because I know I'll have fun but the main reason why I chose to go far from the city is to reflect. To observe the things around me. To look at things in a different perspective. To see how I've changed for the past months, to look back who I was before compared to who I am now. To fully appreciate things.
I am very thankful that ever since I got back from that trip, each day feels bright. Each morning feels right. I;ve been waking up early, as early as 7am. It feels different going to bed and waking up early when you don't really have to. I felt like I have a lot of time to do things. I am really feeling productive.
It also feels good that I eat breakfast, yes, breakfast not brunch, it's one of the things Im happy about. the simplest things.
I finally had the time to be with the people I haven't seen for so long. I maximized the time to meet my barkada since HS, some classmates in HS, closest college friends, parish friends and some that I surpringsingly just bumped into.
It also feels nostalgic visiting StudentCouncil offices and orgs I used to handle last year. I suddenly missed everything.
I started to appreciate the simplest things around me. like a simple "goodmorning! how are you?" from a friend I haven't seen for years, or a "good night + (adjective)" before you sleep and "good morning + (adjective)" when you wake up from your crush.
I realized that everyday is a learning experience. You can learn something from everything that's happening around you. It may be someone else's experience and not yours but if you observe, you'll learn something from it.
actually, days before the trip, I was still unsure if I can make it because there are series of events I have to attend to but He knew I needed a break and have time for myself so He helped me make way for it.
and now I'm back with a refreshed heart, mind and soul :)
