As the plane began its descent I looked through the window at the tiny shimmering vessels that pulsated through the heart of the city where mine beated for the first time. Before I could decipher which emotion I am feeling tears … Continue reading →
Northern Thailand had me under its spell. I found it so hard to leave. But I’ve been longing for the islands. So I parted ways with my Pai family and took three buses heading down south. I knew I had … Continue reading →
Life is so beautiful. This world is so beautiful. There’s so much to do. So much to see. And we’re so young. What a waste life would be if we didn’t follow our hearts and do whatever makes us happy? What a waste life would be if we didn’t even feel alive, or risk anything because of our fears, or didn’t see the world we live in?
Whoever is reading this, I hope you follow your bliss. I hope you follow your goosebumps. I hope you follow your wanderlust. I hope you follow your dreams. Even if that means not having a degree to frame onto your wall, or a steady fat paycheck, or a nice big house, or pretty expensive things. Because when you’re on your deathbed you’re not going to think about the degrees you acquired, and how much money made and spent. You’re going to think about the people you love, all the beautiful places you went to, and your dreams that came alive.
Gain the courage to follow whatever makes you feel the most alive and never stop chasing your dreams.

Felt the need to write this before I sleep tonight.
There will be a time when all of you will realize that a brand of car/clothing/purse is not proportional to your value as a human being. When you will look at the innate beauty of the human soul as opposed to limiting them through their physical imperfections. When you eat to live, not live to eat. When you get off your fucking couch and stop watching the senseless bullshit that corporate media has been feeding your mind since childhood. When you realize that you need to stop believing everything the government says, and educate yourself on what is real and what is just. When you realize that romantic love is a speck of dust compared to what infinite compassionate universal love is. When you travel and begin to realize that yes you have been selfish and spoiled rotten, and you need to help the ones who need it. Mankind has fucked up, and humanity needs to fix it. Call it wishful thinking, mumble that it’s impossible, whatever. I will always believe in humanity and the power of the human spirit.
