BRUSSELS: A GRAND PLACE

"You are never too old to set another
 goal or to dream a new dream." 
- C.S. Lewis


2017 was a breezy year in that I gave it mediocre effort. I guess the failed attempts to do better got to me. I was always an optimist. People knew me for being bubbly… but those closest to me, truly closest to me, saw that part of me dimmed. Like a candle’s flame losing oxygen. I entered the deadly mindset of “Why try? If I end up exactly where I would have anyway?”. Applying to all those jobs I didn’t even know if I wanted, in the hopes to not end up here, exactly where I am anyway, in a job I never really chose. All those attempts of doing well in my studies only to end up with the same mediocre grades...

AMSTERDAM: WITH YOU

"I wanna travel the world with you. 
Go to every city, take pictures and be happy."
- Anonymous


December was an amazing time... because my dreams came true. I've never been so far across the globe before. It truly puts into perspective that the world has so much to offer, so much more to experience. That's why travelling is so therapeutic. For those with broken hearts from whatever cause... travelling makes your life seem small, and your problems and heartaches insignificant. That is not to say I travelled with a broken heart in the beginning, no, I travelled with an open heart ready to let the world's wonders change me, with my love strongly by my side.

TRÈS CHIC

"Wander, expand your mind and see that the world
is larger than you think. And that your problems
are smaller than you know."


It's unbelievable how it's already 2018. Maybe as we grow older we become more aware of time, while also losing complete awareness too. A strange phenomenon really. We really notice it when time ticks over each year, and we really notice it when our age ticks over to a next one. Yet we completely lose track of where all the inbetween goes, because I guess life gets busier and sometimes we just get lost in it all. (Just don't forget that as we are growing up, our parents are growing old. Cherish your limited time with them.)

ROMANTICISATION

"Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me. 
'Cause we were just kids when we 
fell in love, not knowing what it was..." 
- Ed Sheeren (Perfect)


I love the unusual, the different, the unorthodox but it is a strange dichotomy that I am also a secret die hard romantic for the corny, cheesy stuff. Love is so commercialised these days that often young lovers break hearts in the search for something of silver screen dreams. When the infatuation dies off, you go off searching for a new high thinking something is wrong with what you had. But honey, nothing was wrong with what you had, what was wrong was you.
