Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. 🤓
Get lost and find yourself. 💫
We visited Quiapo Church which is home to the very famous Black Nazarene. It is said that if you touch it it can grant miracles. It was originally brought here in the 1600’s and has survived a multitude of disasters (This seems like a running theme for most historical sites here in Manila). On Jan 9 there is the Feast of the Black Nazarene. There is a huge procession and they take this statue with them. Look it up, I couldn’t believe the sheer number of people trying to touch the statue. A lot of people will also bring a handkerchief to rub on the statue so they can keep it as a token. I read that some people will wait in line for 7 hours to touch this statue. The one you see here is not the real one. The real one resides in a safe place somewhere in the basilica for security reasons.
Our next stop was Chinatown!! I learned that purple jade is a real thing and I need to get some! We stopped in a few shops, took the place in and had lunch at a yummy place. Sadly we had to leave earlier than we intended because Brie wasn’t feeling very well, she fell right to sleep almost as soon as we got in the car. Everyone was pretty exhausted so I guess it was a good thing to go home early.
I always have a hard time leaving before I’ve barely had a chance to explore a place. This was one of those times I would have liked to go see the tiny shops and touch all of the shiny things. But then I have to remind myself how I would feel if I didn’t feel well. Would I want to walk around a crowded place when it’s hot for a long time? Probably not. Hopefully tomorrow everyone will feel better, not feeling well is dumb.
Oh I forgot to mention, we had these yummy cheese sweet pancake things from a street vendor, holy cow were they YUMMY!

I am grateful to have an entire day doing the things that I like. Gathering my thoughts, writing in my journal, enjoying good food, meeting some of my best friends, reading a book, taking quiet walks, sharing long-distance video calls with my boyfriend, being surrounded by nature.
I love being with people, but most of the time, I prefer being by myself. It's wonderful to get in touch with my emotions, having a sense of clarity on what I want to do with my life. I have so many dreams, so many plans for this year. Having moments of introspection helps me realize what path I should follow, trusting that everything will happen at the right moment. 💚🌸🌿
