Naked Island📍Candid pics coming in hot! What a way to round up this DAY 🤩 Just a little island of pure sand popping up out of the sea. Probably one of the most visited tourist attractions of Siargao.. but of course, the blokes off OUR tour have decided it’s better to plant some coconut trees there, for the shade ya know 🤷🏼♀️😆 Stand by for many a GoPro vid of today’s antics. Bet ya can’t wait 😛 #nakedisland#siargao#philippines
What has been is what shall be,
what has been done
is what shall be done
there is no new matter under the sun
Is there a matter of which it is said,
See, this is new?
It was here already,
There is no remembrance of former ones,
nor is there any remembrance of those that are to come
by those who come later on
I set my heart
to seek and search out by wisdom
concerning all that has been done
under the heavens
this evil task
Elohim has given to the sons of man,
to be humbled by it
I have seen
all the works
that are done under the sun
all was futile and feeding on wind
could not be straightened
what is lacking could not be counted
So I speak to my heart,
See, I have attained greatness,
and have gained more wisdom
than all who were before me
my heart has seen much wisdom and knowledge
I set my heart to know wisdom
and to know madness and folly
I know that this too is feeding on wind
For in much wisdom is much grief,
and he who increases knowledge increases suffering
I thought I knew you
But the knowledge of you
Brings much joy paired with suffering
Futility, futility, all is futile!
Let it not be
Tell me What does man gain
from all his labour
in which he toils under the sun?
A generation passes away,
and a generation comes,
but the earth stands forever
The sun also rises,
and the sun sets,
and hurries back to the place where it arose
Going to the south,
and turning round to the north,
and on its rounds the wind returns
All the rivers run into the sea,
yet the sea never overflows
To the place from which the rivers come,
there they return again
All matters are wearisome,
no one is able to speak of it
Your eye is not satisfied with seeing,
nor the ear filled with hearing
Pinoy fietstas are amazing! Made new friends and got invited to come eat at their place.. Obviously when we got to the house people were singing Karoake outside.. The food was great!
Little did I know we would do the exact same thing again at two more houses. Salamat for the amazing hospitality!
Marajaw gajod na fiesta!
I do not know why we make it so hard to be ourselves, exactly as we are. Do you not find it tiring to pretend to be someone else?
And by being yourself, I do not mean that you have a right to be hurtful and cruel to others nor say anything you wish to say. It is about ending both your pretension or rebellion and to simply relax and simply be. Relaxed enough to show how good your authentic self is.
There is no need to assert your individuality. You just need to gently give yourself permission and space, from time to time, to be alone, where no one knows you. Read the books you wish to read. Watch the movies you wish to watch. Say how you really feel, even if it is just to yourself.
Who you are is a gift that no one else can give nor duplicate. You are like a drop of rain, simultaneously unique and common as the others in the same storm, fertilizing a specific spot of the world’s soil.

. I took these photos when I'm having my 1st vacation in the Philippines sometime in April. My family and I went for a hiking. (Yeah, I love adventures) We started the journey at 2 am and after 3 exhausting hours of non stop climbing, we reached the top. Seeing these beautiful sceneries makes me feel that I'm the most luckiest person in the world, witnessing God's creation and the first word that came from my mouth was "wow!". Thank you God for letting me embraced your one of most precious creations "nature". (Swipe to see more photos)
Once upon a time,
you were a little girl with big dreams that you promised you’d make real one day.
Don’t disappoint yourself. 💙
