It all seems like a whole lot of words, but there are key words and phrases in this message that draw my attention such as sweat and blood; shortcomings; strive; enthusiasms; worthy cause; triumph of high achievement; and daring, that make me want to strive for more. All of life is a learning curve. The energy that you manifest to the world, is the energy that you receive back. When someone treats you badly, it is a reflection of who they are as a person – toxic. Treat others the way you’d like to be treated, and this type of kindness will come back to you tenfold.
If you don’t take risks, you’ll have a wasted soul.

Changed some money to New Zealand dollars today. Starting to feel really excited, yet scared because I still haven’t packed! So much to do, so little time! New Zealand awaits me…
I’ve got 7 days left till my big adrenaline junkie New Zealand Contiki tour! In the last few days, I’ve felt like I have been living with a cloud above my head. I think this New Zealand trip will be good for me. I’ll recharge my batteries and hopefully come back with a new perspective on life. I’ll write up a 2014 plan and make the most of my final year at uni.
Sometimes I forget what I stand for. Life is better when you are laughing. So be who you are, not what the world wants you to be.
I’ll keep y’all posted on my New Zealand trip! Not long to go! Get excited!

Growing up with strict Filipino parents, I often forget to give myself some credit. Cheers! *clink clink*
Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.
– Franklin D. Roosevelt
Creativity is a great motivator because it makes people interested in what they are doing. Creativity gives hope that there can be a worthwhile idea. Creativity gives the possibility of some sort of achievement to everyone. Creativity makes life more fun and more interesting.
– Edward de Bono
Sometimes, it’s easy to get into a rut. I haven’t been blogging as frequently as when I first started this blog. I think I had so much energy and determination at the start, but then…well, life got in the way. Note to self: you just need to keep believing in yourself. That’s it.
