It doesn’t matter how much you love it here or there, him or her, this or that; things will often have an end. It’s cruel, I know. One of the most difficult parts is accepting it has ended and that it’s time to move on and move forward. Life rarely makes sense looking forward, but we still need to keep walking trusting that life will guide us to the right places.
On one hand, I’m thankful for where I’ve been able to travel in the past weeks – Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong; and what I’ve been able to see, experience, and enjoy. I’m thankful for all the friends who set aside some time to hang out and talk, have a meal, travel, party, and dream. You guys are awesome and I’m proud to call you all my friends, as well as to be your friend. Special thanks to Mona and family, Rasmus, Nelson, and last, but not least, Lewis!
On the other hand, it’s difficult to leave a place like Hong Kong, where happiness is easy to find, adventures are everywhere, and the energy is remarkably high. There were way too many emotions and thoughts crossing my mind and punching my heart last night. It’s pretty tough to depart, but it’s about time.
I’m happy and fortunate that this trip happened because I found a lost piece of myself – soul or roots, whatever it can and should be called – that I needed for the continuation of my next journey; I found inner peace while being by myself reflecting about life, love, friends and family; and I found myself dreaming about 2016 and all the challenges it’ll bring to my life – it’ll be a pretty amazing year.
Thanks for reading!
