I wanted to share inspiring wanderlust quotes that I’ve read from books, the internet, and other sources. These quotes inspired me to do more adventures and see the most beautiful places that I’ve only seen on postcards and Instagram. These quotes are the reasons why I fell deeply in love with photography, voyage, and mother earth, and I’m very grateful to share some of the pictures that made all my travels worthy, heart-stopping and heaven-sent.

Here are the 10 travel quotes that will spark your desire and longing for travels and adventures;

Life is a beautiful thing!

Life is a beautiful thing to be grateful for. It gives us chances to see the beauty of every country and every color of the world. It let us wander from land to air and see the marvelous creations of God.

Life is a beautiful thing that I’m happy to have. So many people in the world are fighting for their lives. Every second’s count and every prayer are offered just to have another day or years of this life. Others take it for granted and abuse it during their youth. They only realize that time and life are valuable when they experienced sickness and old age.

Life is a beautiful thing that we need to celebrate. To celebrate life with our loved ones and the friends who are dear to us. To honor God and to cheers to the world, you’re living in and just be happy and relieved that you’re alive.

Life is a beautiful thing that will give you unlimited opportunities. Only if you know how to appreciate life and open your eyes to what it’s presenting you. Only if you open the door and the windows of your soul, you’ll ignite the light of hope and make your dreams come true.  Your decisions and willingness to consider these breaks will determine your progress in the future. Opportunities are knocking not only once but sometimes twice, so you better get ready and grab the chance or others will.

Life is a beautiful thing that it teaches you how to be a compassionate, kind and humble being. It shows how love and care for other people, for your loved ones, are important. It will give your hopeless heart a brand new meaning that you’ve been looking for. It will brighten up even your darkest hour and lead you to the path of peace and happiness. Life isn’t perfect, you aren’t either, and that’s what makes it beautiful and mysterious. It gives us something that’s unexpected, so we must celebrate life every day with the people who matters to us most.

Life is a beautiful thing that it can make you fall in love and experience pain at the same time. Through every pain and challenges, you become strong and prudent. Through love and sympathy, you become a better person you’re destined to be. It gives lessons of love, it shows the magic of love not only to a single person but to the rest of the world. It can give happiness,  misery, a roller coaster ride feeling, trouble and adventure with the person you’ll fall in love with. That’s how unpredictable life is.

Life is a beautiful thing that it lets strangers become friends. It lets people connected and bonded with a hope and belief that their lives will get better. It makes living worth living, it makes people hold on to their dreams, and it gives people other people to be their source of inspiration. If you dream of living in a lifeless world, then you’re probably dead. But if you dream of living in world full of happy people who are dreamers and adventurous, you are alive.

Life is a beautiful thing that it gives us trials and moments of defeats that make as human. Life doesn’t only show you the brightest lights in the sky but also takes you to the deepest and darkest light of the sea. It doesn’t always gives you a sunny day or a perfect day you always imagined, but also gives you a rainy and cloudy day to pause and reflect for a while.

 

 

2017, I’m Ready!

Thank you 2016 for all the good and bad memories we’ve shared. I’ve learned so many lessons and I’ve been blessed with plenty of opportunities.  It’s time to say goodbye, and it’s time to welcome the great and prosperous 2017 for me.

I’m ready to start a new and fresh life 2017. I’m ready to fill my planner with my short and long term goals that I’ve been working on since last year. I’m ready to fill my travel diary and website with more wonderful travels and adventures. I’m ready to meet new people and see new faces.

I’m ready to find ways on how I can grow HAPPY RABBIT TRAVELS site and create informative, fun and interesting posts. I’m ready to be more connected with my readers and other bloggers.I’m ready to be creative and resourceful to achieve these goals and I will succeed and will never allow fear to take over me.

I’m ready to embrace change and opportunities. I know that I can’t resist change and I need to welcome opportunities that come my way. I believe these changes are inevitable for my growth and development. I believe they will be the key to my success and the source of strength and inspiration for a brighter tomorrow. It’s about time to assess the opportunities that are knocking on my door and decide whether to accept it or pass it on.

I’m ready to be bold, brave and adventurous. I’m willing to brush off the shyness and coward side of me and become a fearless warrior princess. I need to be strong, I need to be tough and I need to choose any battles that will show up. I need to be patient and careful with every situation that will test my personality and ego. I need to be wiser and braver to face every problem that may arise as I know that it can affect my actions towards achieving happiness and my goal.

I’m ready to love myself more. I’m ready to invest and put effort to make myself feel worthy of the things I deserved. I will workout and stay fit as much as I can so that with every adventure that I want to do, I can be physically and mentally ready. I will continue reading books that will keep me motivated and determined to pursue my passion. These books will be a way to guide me to the things I don’t know, to the things that I have no idea yet have a huge impact on my success. I need to read more books that will not only feed my brain but also nourish my spirit and my entire being.

I’m ready to welcome wealth and financial freedom. I know I’ve been bad with handling money and I’ve tried to change that little by little. I’ve seen the fruits of my efforts and thankful that I become wiser day by day as I see the significance of money and the value of hard work just to get it. I will listen more to audio books, read books about finances, and practice being more thrifty and wiser in the coming years. It’s never too late to start and I believe I’m  capable of doing amazing things. I just need more time, more discipline, more motivation to make my plan works. I will plan my budget well and add more on my investments. I will let my asset grow this year and let my fear of losing money go.
 
I’m ready to build friendships and romance. I’m ready to finally meet the person destined for me. Someone who’s ready to love and fight for me despite the challenges and difficulties in life. Someone who will stay and never let me go. Someone who cares and love me wholeheartedly. Someone who’ll realize my value and love me more than I love him. I’m willing and open for the possibility that God will present this person in 2017 and I’m being optimistic that our paths will cross one day. Maybe in a plane, on the beach, in my favorite coffee shop, on the top of the mountain, in the church, in the street, in the corner of our office and in other places I’ve never been yet. No matter where I will meet this person and I’ll be happy and have my arms ready and widely open for him. I’m ready to meet strangers that will be my new friends. I will be friendly and try not to be snobbish. I know I’m approachable and easy to talk to, but I’ll try to be more open this time.
 

I’m ready to be more connected to God, my family and my best of friends. I know I’ve been busy for the past years due to work and other commitment that made me taken for granted these people who are dear to me. I’ve been bad with schedules and I’ve been away for travel and adventure. I will still be on the road, in the country or other places, but I promise that this 2017, I will appreciate more the people I love and who loves me. I will show my effort, love and care for them to feel how much I value them. I will make time and stay connected to them more often than the previous years. Most importantly, I want to make up for the time I failed to say thank you and ask for forgiveness to God who made me who I am right now. I want to thank Him for all the blessings and wonderful gift of life He gave me. I want to thank Him for giving my life, my love ones, and all the opportunities presented to me. I want to be closer to Him and have a life that puts Him in the center of all the things I’m doing. I will never be lost, and He will never abandon me.

I’m ready to let go and move forward. I’m ready to move on to the next chapter of my life by turning on the next pages. It doesn’t mean I have to forget all the memories in the past, it only means that I have to look forward to what lies ahead. It means that I have to let go of my fear, self-doubt, and worries. That I have to forgive the people and situation that hurt me and cause me too much pain, and I’ll put an end to self-pity and limiting beliefs.  I’m ready to start a brand new life by giving closure to the things that need it. I’m ready to accept new challenges and new adventures. I know with all the things life is showing me, good and bad, I will win and gain more strength and wisdom to face it day by day. And if I fail, I will still learn to be humble and accept defeat yet I will rise and will never ever give up. Dreams do come true, and life goes on, that’s why I believe and I declare to the world that all my plans for 2017 will come true with patience, hard work, belief and God’s guidance. Everything is possible.

“Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.”–Golda Meir

Let’s stay connected and keep on dreaming. I appreciate your efforts and for taking the time to read and visit my site.

Happy New Year Everyone!

 
Love, 
 
Ms.Happy Rabbit

Looking Back at 2016

While people are busy making plans of the upcoming 2017, I was struck by the thoughts of how my 2016 went. A friend told me to write something about it before I write anything about my plans for 2017.

My mind is so busy thinking of 2017 that I forgot to reflect on my life for the past 12 months.

For me, 2016 is the year that made me started to think and focus on myself. I had an amazing first quarter where I discovered my passion for travel, writing, and photography. I never thought that I will fall in love with travel and adventure. The risk taker and adventurous side of me unleashed when I began my steps to the Peak of  Taraw, El Nido rocky mountain. I never thought I could climb the mountain which is the highest point of El Nido. I never thought that my fear of swimming in the deep sea will diminish the moment I saw those beautiful creatures and corals under the sea. I never thought that I can easily fall in love with green trees, mountains, blue-green sea water, sea creatures, white sands, and sunsets.

I fall in love with climbing, snorkeling and taking pictures which I thought I was sucked in the first place. My thoughts become wider as I explore the other parts of our country and as I begun to meet new people from other places, I became passionate to share my feelings and photography by creating my own site.

Happy Rabbit Travels is one way that describes “Joe” outside work. That I have life, family, friends, and dreams. It describes the things about me that not all the people knew about me. I’m glad that though I just started it last March, it has now more or less 100 views daily. I’m so grateful for people I met in WordPress and Instagram, for the people who appreciate and take notice of my work. I’m blessed to finally share the things I wanted; the beauty of our world, and the challenging day to day experiences of every individual.

This is my proudest season of the year, as my youngest sibling already graduated from college. I’m so blessed to have siblings who know how much I work hard just to support them. I’m glad that they appreciate my efforts and hard works by finishing college and giving me good grades every semester, and I’m so proud of them. Now, I know our late father is proud of us for what we’ve become.

The first Quarter of 2016 made me meet new people who became part of my life, and until now, we remained connected and friends. The people I never thought I can actually blend, the people that made me proud of myself and push me too hard beyond the limits I set for myself. The people who are level headed, business oriented, traveler and dreamer. The people who won’t judge you for your weakness, but encourage you to be strong, face your fears and embrace your flaws and the real you. I’m so grateful for them, and they will always be part of my life no matter what happens.

For the second and third quarter of 2016, I’ve learned to let go despite how difficult it may seem.

I let go of my friends who are very dear to me. I understand why sometimes people need to follow their dreams and move away. They’re simply not being selfish, but being true to the fact the life is really hard, and that they have to make choices and sacrifices for their love ones.
I let go of the past and the people who are no longer part of my present. I let go of the things and situations that don’t help me grow as a person.
I let go of the old habits and procrastination which are not healthy for my future success.
I let go of the past mistakes and forgave the people who hurt me.
I let go of the fear and the rejections I’ve been.
I let go of the memories that I’ve been playing from the past… and last but not the least, I let go of the old me and instead became fearless, adventurous, and risk taker.

This is the time when I did my first solo travel, and experience the joy of loving myself. I focus all my energies and efforts to do what I want. I strive to get things done and pursue my passion. I challenge myself to do not so ordinary things alone. I met strangers that are now my friends. I discover all my strength, flaws, and weakness. I learned how to control my emotions and ego, I learned how to build new relationships and friendships, I learned new habits and get into training that will improve my personality development. Now I can fully say that I love and know myself more than anyone in this world 🙂

It’s a great discovery and a great adventure.

The last quarter of 2016 has been the most difficult and challenging not only to me but also to some people I know. Drastic changes, competition, and pressure made me exhausted with the things I do. It somehow made me lose the drive to get up in bed, and made me tired all the time. Those hard days, are not yet over but, I’m seeing the fruits of the efforts and hard work that I’ve done for past months. I can say that it’s just a tough year, but not a tough life.

I became brave to face the person I haven’t seen for years. He’s the person I was supposed to marry, I’m glad to finally give him the closure that both of us needs to move on with our lives and start a new adventure with other people. I thought I can’t face the person who causes me so much pain, yet I’ve learned to forgive and forget the pain. Time really heals all wounds. We can get over with the people and situation that hurt us. We can let go and fly away.. and be happy.

I’m still blessed that I have a loving family and friends to celebrate Christmas. I’m blessed to be given opportunities to share my work and been to places I’ve never been before. I’m blessed cause I have the people who inspire me to do good and be the better version of myself. I’m blessed to have my readers who inspire me to write more. I’m blessed cause I’m happy and healthy.  And though I did not get all the things I wanted for 2016, God gave me the things He knew I needed.

Woman

You’re the kind of woman who loves so deeply. The kind of woman who will give every inch of herself just to make him happy. You’re the kind of woman whose being adored by others. The kind of woman who shows compassion and sympathy…

You’re the kind of woman that every man wants to love. The kind of woman with a fragile heart that left unguard. You’re the kind of woman who cares so much about your family. The kind of woman who dares to be genuine and happy.

You’re the kind of woman with charm and elegance. The kind of woman who longs for love in his eyes. You’re the kind of woman who cries at night. The kind of woman that needs some guiding light.

You’re the kind of woman who fights for her love. The kind of woman who strives and works hard. You’re the kind of woman who wants peace and serenity. The kind of woman who deserves the truth and honesty.

You’re the kind of woman who sticks to her friendships. The kind of woman who values all kinds of relationships. You’re the kind of woman who built her own walls. The kind of woman whose a little bit scared to fall.

You’re the kind of woman who laughs so easily. The kind of woman who was hurt so badly. You’re the kind of woman who gets up when you fall down. The kind of woman who rises up from the ground.

You’re the kind of woman I never thought you’d become. The kind of woman who sometimes suffers all year round. You’re the kind of woman who reflects a strong willed person. The kind of woman who aims for greatness and takes action.

You’re the kind of woman who loves all kinds of poetry. The kind of woman who hates algebra and geometry. You’re the kind of woman whose passionate about travel and nature. The kind of woman who appreciates the joy of every culture.

Letting go…

“It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over.”
Paulo Coelho

There are memories in life that you hold on for a long time. These are things you keep deep within your souls, impressions of happiness and laughter, impressions of uncertainty and loneliness, impressions of success and achievements, and impressions of failure and defeat. You hang on to these things because it has something that makes you grasp on it.

You hang on to memories of an old lover or situation. You settle for loneliness for a little while and play the victims of your self-pity and misery… And as the day passes by, you make it even harder for yourself to move forward and see what lies ahead.

Letting go is never easy for you despite the heaviness you carry on your shoulder.

Letting go is scary for you, cause you’re afraid that after losing the person you once loved, you’ll lose the traces and eventually lose yourself, too.

Letting go is a decision you never make because you are not firm enough to answer the questions in your head.

Letting go is a painful process that every person goes through in a day-to-day life. It can be in any aspects of human lives. It can take many forms and angles. It can be a thing that is no longer useful to you. It can be a condition that you get used too that no longer serves its purpose. It can be a friend who betrays your trust. It can be a family or loved ones who become unfaithful to you… And it can be you, for not forgiving yourself, and others, after damaging and letting yourself down for so many times.

So when will you realize that you have to stop holding on to the past that no longer exists?

How do you let go? How will you let go of the hand that’s hurting you?

“If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him”
Paulo Coelho

I know this will never be a one time step that you need to take. I know that you have to go with the process of moving forward and have the courage to walk away. I know it requires a lot of time and effort. I know how many tears you need to shed. I know how much hurt and pain you have to handle… But, I also know that you’re not the only person on earth who experience such pain.

”   My heart might be bruised, but it will recover and become capable of seeing beauty of life once more. It’s happened before, it will happen again, I’m sure. When someone leaves, it’s because someone else is about to arrive–I’ll find love again”
Paulo Coelho

I believe you can overcome this thing…

I believe you can move forward and appreciate what still remains.

I believe that no matter how difficult things may become, you’ll surpass it.

I believe you will soon accept the reasons why it happened.

I believe you’ll be happier after the storm in your life calmed down.

I believe miracles will do its magic to heal your broken heart.

I believe that someone out there will make you feel at home once again.

Believe me, it’s possible…

You can make it, you can let go, and you can be happy again… because “I did”.

Any thoughts, tips and ideas for letting go?
I’d love to hear your story when you felt the time that you have to let go of any person, things and situation. 

WORK-LIFE BALANCE

“I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can’t truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles”. – Zig Ziglar

People sometimes tend to forget how to unwind and chill for a while. They are busy on pursuing their dreams and pushing themselves too hard that they forget the needs to rest. There’s nothing wrong with being a go-getter, a team player, a hard worker, a breadwinner and an achiever person, as long as you give yourself (body, mind, and soul) a chance to breathe and relax whenever it tells you to do so.

My Bff and I have the same motto in life. We are all hardworking people, and though we’re working in different companies, having different schedules, we are all in the same financial industry. We love our jobs, we love our companies and we love the people we’re working with, but most of all, we love ourselves above them all. We believe in rewarding ourselves and giving the best day we deserve, that’s why we ensure to have our staycation every once in a while.

“Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.” – Dolly Parton

Most of the successful people achieve success because they dedicated all their time and effort in getting things done and working towards their goals. They do all the possible ways to ensure their success and sometimes they even sacrifice their personal time just to push their plans and achieve their goals.

I personally believe in hard work, determination, focus and optimism when it comes to success and achieving our personal goals, however, I also believe that it must be done gradually. There should be a work-life balance, and it means balancing everything that will not let your personal life be taken for granted. Prioritizing your dreams and ambitions without letting your health and personal relationship suffer.

We all experience juggling between life and career. It is indeed a hard task to do, but I believe it’s possible. I believe in work-life balance the way the most successful and famous people believe.

“Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls – family, health, friends, and integrity – are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.” – Gary Keller

Some people don’t believe that work-life balance is possible, but I do. I believe it’s possible because I try to make it possible. I try to find time to meet my friends on weekends, or whenever I can. I try to find time to make new friends not only at work but outside the four corners of the office. I try to find time to make myself healthy and fit, and whenever, I feel tired and restless, I paused and let myself breathe. I try to find time to build relationships, not only with new people but more importantly build a stronger relationship with my family.

What’s the sense of success when you don’t have friends and family that you can share it with?

What’s the sense of working too hard and sacrificing personal life when you don’t have someone that you can cuddle at night?

What’s the sense of achieving your dreams when you’re alone and unhappy?

And, why do we let work get in our way of having a happy and meaningful life?

I hope people realize how much they missed out on their lives when they don’t come home on time. I wish they realize that if they dedicate a portion of their lives building relationships and making themselves happy and healthy, they will be living a more meaningful life. I wish they will realize that time is precious as well as their loved ones. It’s not all about work, it’s not all about ambition, it’s not all about career, it’s all about LIFE and BALANCE.

Work-life balance is possible and we have to embrace it. We have to know why we are doing the things we do and to whom we dedicate all our efforts and hard work, too. We need to remember how to live a meaningful life and not take for granted all the essential aspects of our lives. We have to focus and put our hearts into it because one day we might  wake up and realize that work will always be there tomorrow, but our friends and loved ones might not be.

Are you creating a work-life balance for yourself?
I’d like to hear your thoughts, opinions and strategies in making a balance in your life.

It’s my birthday!

I’m not getting old…I’m getting better. These are the lines that I keep repeating to myself.

Today adds another year for me to celebrate life. Another year to celebrate with friends and dear loved ones. Another year where I can dream and pray for a better relationship, better health and better tomorrow.

I know people like to celebrate this special day with the people who matters to them and I am one of them. I’m grateful for the gifts, messages and birthday treats I get from my friends and family. I even celebrated 2 days in advance with my office mates. I’m grateful for all the blessings that I received. God is always there for me and He listens to everything my heart and soul are saying. With all the things I have right now, what are the other things I’m wishing and praying for? What are my realizations?

I know I’m not the only person who gets sentimental on this special day… I know a lot of people who experience the same way.

I only have few prayers:

1. I pray that my family and I will remain bonded, strong, and love one another.

2. I pray that we all remain healthy, especially my mother who already aged taking good care of us.

3. I pray that my family and loved ones will be happy all the time. Even to the toughest days of their lives.

4. That we remain humble, kindhearted and God-fearing individuals.

5. And that we are protected from any harm and bad things.

6. And lastly, I ask God to grant us peace and wisdom.

Today is the day that made realize that I have to work harder for my dreams else, it will remain a dream. These are the things I’m currently aiming for the next 365 days;

1. US and Europe trip – I’m currently working hard for it as I know it requires a lot of time, money and requirements, especially for Filipinos.

2. Backpacking in Asia – in the event that my goal #1 is not yet possible, I have to do the Asia travel.

3. Be my own boss – yes, you read it right! I always wanted to have my own business that I can manage. Where I have my own time, manage my own future and mind my own business.

4. Have a partner for life – this one will always be a grand dream cause I know it’s not easy to find the person you want to spend your whole life with. This requires patience,time, effort, prayers, and luck.

5. Good health, peace and happiness – no matter how successful a person is, if he isn’t healthy, happy and doesn’t have peace of mind. Everything doesn’t make sense. All his achievements and success will be a waste. Happiness is a gift, as well as good health and peace of mind.

19th of August marks not only my birth date but the 177 years of photography.

So, Happy #worldphotoday everybody and Happy Birthday to me! This is a special day to celebrate life and our love and passion for photography. It’s amazing how people are united to show the beautiful masterpiece of the world. Cheers to the next 100 years of #photography 🍹🍺🍸#August19 #worldphotoday #19th #birthday #photography #photo

See the 2 #photos of me taken in my two weeks travel in Palawan and Boracay.

Dear Future Travel Buddy

I know I haven’t met you yet but I know I have known you in my past life. I know our paths have crossed already…maybe I was just busy building my career and my life that I let you passed me by. 

Crazy! Insane! Yes possibly I am into it already, but I won’t give up on us easily. I know I will not just have a travel buddy who will hop with me from coast to coast. I know I will not have a friend but a best friend that I can share my laugh with. I know you’re not just a stranger, you’re my man and my soul mate. I know it’s not an accident that we met each other.. I know it’s our destiny to be together.. and it’s your destiny not to give up on the things that make us happy.

You support me through all my hopes and dreams. You stay with me to the sweetest and the most bitter times of my life. You show your true colors that made me fall in love with you. You’re gentle, compassionate, sweet, honest, charming, smart and the most kindhearted person that I’ve ever met. You always made me the best version of myself. You made me travel the world without a need to ride a plane, a boat, and a bus… who else in the world can make me smile so much? Who in the world can make me feel at home every second of the day?

I know I wanna travel with you…

I know I wanna be with the person who has the same dream of seeing the world.

I know nothing can compare to the friendship that we build for a long time…

I know I can’t forget your first “hello”

I know every place will go will be a paradise and sweet heaven.

You made me patient. You made me appreciate life..you made me see the value of this life.. the essence of love and every heart beats.

I know buddy, as long as I can.. I can wait for that perfect time and day of our meeting.

You’ll be in my heart no matter how difficult waiting is. I will never give up on us, so let us not let go of each other. Remember, we dream of this and we are meant to be together.

You’re more than a summer love to me.

Still remember our song as we sail on the sea. We swim and snorkel, we watch fire dancing and enjoy the kayak during the sunset. We walk on the long stretch of the beach while waiting for the sunrise and sunset. As the sun comes out, you blow me a kiss and whisper how happy you are with us.

So buddy, stay strong and be patient..will be together in the coming months and years. It’s not yet over buddy… just hold on to our dreams cause I will give up the world I’m in right now  just to be with you.

Love,

Your favorite bunny 🐇
