My Trip To the Beach Put Me In This Mood

Anawangin Island in Zambales is now officially on my 'favorite places in the world list'. This list includes:

the company of friends
the backseat of a car en route to the beach
underneath a blanket of stars
the arms of a significant other
the company of a child
on top of a mountain

My life, thus far, has not exactly been virtuous and ideal. But given the chance, I would choose to change nothing. All I'm feeling now is no regrets, serenity and peace. Not to say that I don't yearn for the things that your average twenty-something craves for - the dream job, stable finances, intimacy, mobility, self-control - these are all in working progress. But right now, I have everything that I need - my family, my dear dear friends, my health, my sanity, my optimism, my faith.

To Him who created me and gave me life, I am eternally grateful.
