Leap of Faith

I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to just get out, let go of the past and just start over. Almost 32 years of existence, I thought of finally just getting out there, and plunge into the unknown world.

I am a dreamer. A passionate one. I need constant purpose and intent to motivate me to keep going.

They say the first step is always the hardest. I’ve never been one who is scared of change. I take everything head on.

I am moving to a different country in about 2 weeks and there are too many things going on in my mind now that I can’t even put them into words.

If you know me, you might be asking – you have a decent, in fact, great life in the Philippines. Why are you leaving and sacrificing everything to start over? Believe me, all people that I know have asked the same question. I can’t give them a straight answer, but I know my reason.

When I’m 60 years old, and I look back and remember how I lived my life, I don’t want to regret not dreaming big, not trying things I should have when I was healthy and able to. I don’t want to end up with life’s ‘what ifs’.

It’s never too late to become who I want to be. I want to live a life that I am proud of, and learn from this new journey, and take all the wisdom I have gained from past mistakes to fuel me into this voyage.

I believe in my heart that I am meant to live a full and passionate life, with a greater purpose.

We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.
