Kindness is my only guiding star.
In its light, I sail a straight route.
I have my motto written on my sail:
“To Live in Love.” -St Therese of Lisieux
Today, I leave Macedonia. Traveling from Skopje to Pristina (Kosovo).
Spent twenty – six delightful days in a country I did not expect it to be.
Part of me will live here. Maybe forever.
As they say, love finds you in the most unexpected way. Moments are fleeting. Time flies. I will continue my journey. And so are you. If fate has destined to let us meet again. It will be a beautiful union.
When the future is uncertain we leave things to fate. Is life really what we make it? Or is there really such a Grand Plan that let fate guide us through what is destined to happen. I have not really pondered much about it.
All I can say is, thank you for the L O V E .
This trip has given me so much strength I never knew I had. It made me resilient to various challenges I have come across the journey. Each life experiences in every place I have inhabited, only sculpted me to be a better person.
Before this year – 2015, comes to an end. And welcome the coming of the New Year – 2016. Let me thank all the people I met on this journey, strangers turned to be a life-long friends, strangers I have met only once in this life, friends turned to be strangers… My loving family, thoughtful relatives and supportive friends back home (Philippines and Singapore) who had been a constant source of inspiration. This is the longest time I am away — 6 months and counting. I would have not done it if not for the people who opened their homes for me, for groups and organizations who willingly allowed me to work to sustain my planned long-term travel and for random strangers who’d just showed up out nowhere every time I needed help the most. THANK YOU. Please know that I love each and every one of you.
It truly is a great 2015. Have a blessed and peaceful 2016!
Much love from Macedonia, Mafey xx
“I think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense.” –Harold Kushner
I’d like to view life that way. Perhaps everything will make sense as I go further. Few more sleeps and my daily routine will change into no routine at all. Everything will be different. Is it going to be a drastic change? I guess not.
It still has not sink in into my mind that I am leaving very soon and that I will be embarking into a path not known to me. It will be one of those many firsts in my life again. Continue reading “Books That Accompanied My Day-To-Day Traveling (My Daily Commute)”
As I write this I can feel my head going to explode anytime. I am extremely frustrated since last night up until I lodge a Police Report this morning – reporting about my lost valuable documents (stolen is such a harsh word). In this post, I refer “personal belongings” to important documents that you usually carry with you on a daily basis, a legal document/ stuff that gives you the right to live in a particular country while concomitantly allows you to make a living.
A brown color coach pouch that contains my company’s ID, medical card, UOB debt card and working pass (work visa) along with few hundreds Singapore dollars, some Euros and Malaysian ringgits currencies. Plus name cards and a thin tiny prayer booklet from The Feast.
