There seems to always be a guarantee in life that change will come about, but how do we embrace change and how do we as an individual will promote change to help others by giving a certain value and take a very first step that leads to a better change?
We’ve all learned that change is good and change is the only constant in this life.
But as often as we hear it, a lot of us are still struggling with it. Why? Because most of us is being controlled by extreme antipathy for change. But how on earth that most of us would hate a certain change instead of encompassing it with understanding and be thankful for change has arrived? Because when a sudden change has landed on our comfort zone, it upends our comfort levels, leaving us insecure and afraid. It challenges us in all ways, from our expectations, routines our understanding of the world and how we live in it for good.
They said in order for you to go far in every journey you choose, there should be a deep foundation and reason, but on the day I decided to blog was just too shallow that even my own shadow would never stick cause he would refuse to conceive.
There were changes going on around me and eventually it drove me to an empty room with an only silence of truth and pacification of peace that I have carried in mind. I left the baggage outside, attempting to figure out where I’ve been and where should I go. The stunning sunrise slowly spreading its light and filling the space of the earth as I dance to its mood while locking the door and slowly dragging the luggage out of the house and that was the start of everything.
I travel and became a travel blogger with an only intention to document my travels, how my journey made me feel, how it feels like to go to a place that you’ve never been to, how would travel change me from being an empty bottle that was left inside the garbage bin until it was picked up and recycled and has value again. Traveling has changed me a lot, how I see life is now wide, colorful, meaningful and a blessing to behold.
I have traveled to wherever I am today, happily bringing responsibilities and sharing change for the better as my only treasured luggage. I landed to wherever I am at present with a heart full of joy, to inspire and help others to change their perception in life through sharing my travel experiences.
I don’t write to get paid and not to impress, only to inspire. So how and why do they work? As a travel blogger, aside from sharing my travel experiences, my greatest responsibility is to inform and educate other travelers to be more responsible while maintaining my integrity and credibility as a blogger, in this way I can be more free to act independently without losing respect to my fellow bloggers, travelers and everyone in general. Creating content that presents facts as fact and opinion as an opinion is also something I always carry and bear in mind whenever I write, there should always be walls in between to avoid conflicts at the end of my article.
Writing truly from my heart, sharing my travel experiences not to boast, but to inspire others. My success as a blogger does not depend on the amount of viewers who has visited my blog, nor the awards I received, not even the acknowledgement from the people that would possibly lead me to become prouder. Blogging is about touching people’s lives through the word I write, it is about inspiring people to show them that they can as well go beyond limits if they choose to get out of their comfort zone.
Nothing compares to the happiness you get whenever you receive a message from people telling you that you have inspired them to travel as well, telling you that they have been reading your blog because they have been touched of your story. It is a genuine happiness that even a bunch of folded money can never fathom. It is satisfying and fulfilling knowing that there are more people who are being encouraged to travel and appreciate what our country the Philippines has to proffer. Appreciating the stunning sceneries that our country has is something we could transcend from this generation to the coming generation.
As a travel blogger, my word is my sword to inspire, my creativity is my power to let people smile, my ability to explore is my way of showing how beautiful our world is, my photo is my way of saying there is still reason to think beautifully, my travel story is my way of touching people’s lives to let them know that we should always be excited because we can enfold change by pushing ourselves to the limits, get out of our comfort zone and see how big our world is with a heart full of hope for a better change.
