SAGADA: Where Broken Hearts Go

And WHY the place has healing powers.

Disclaimer: This is not one of those typical travel articles, with wonderful source of detailed tips and advises about the how’s, where’s and when’s of travelling. You can find a lot of them on the Internet. But, most of them don’t often share about the whys – which I think is the most remarkable topic to talk about.
Two years ago, I shared a post on my Facebook account about me wanting so much to go to Sagada. The reason is: I have no idea why a lot of people can say that the place can heal and I wanted to know why, even if that time, my heart is still whole and hasn’t experienced emotional traumas - from a serious heartbreak of course. Unluckily, this year, I got my heart-broken into pieces. But also luckily, this year, an opportunity to explore Sagada came to me. So, I grabbed it right away.
Hello Sagada!

The moment I stepped out of the bus, a breath of fresh air welcomed me along with the feeling of thrill and adventure. When I finally read “Sag…

At 22 I Found Out My Purpose in Life

And it’s not happiness.

What could it be?

This realization hit me straight right at home with me. You know those thoughts that suddenly appear out of nowhere while you’re sipping a cup of coffee, and you’re alone one fine afternoon. Yeah, I’ve been thinking about life lately, since I have so much free time to reflect these past few months. And I realized that the purpose of life is not just happiness, but it’s more about being useful to the people around.
"Usefulness is me, being useful. And that’s the reason why I am still here with you."

So, I made a decision to stop pursuing my own happiness and start living a meaningful life by being functional to my family, my friends, and even to strangers. And found out that by doing so, I am actually at my happiest.

Okay. I am one of those who believed before that “to be truly happy” is the ultimate purpose in life - that’s what I’ve been hearing from people also and whatI’ve been seeing when I scroll down and up my Facebook Timeline. As …

The Greatest Pretention I Am Most Guilty of Doing

I’ve been doing this every day. 

I do this to trick the people around. It’s a scam to make you all believe that it is what it is. I’m revealing this because I’m too tired of continuously doing it and I feel like I’m being insincere all the time. It became a burden now and I need to let it go. And also, because maybe some of you are doing it, too. 
So, I am now taking this mask off and now revealing the person in this cloak. 
Remember when you saw me forming a facial expression arching the muscles at the sides of my mouth, and sometimes I even do it along with the contraction of the muscles of my eyes. Yep, I was doing a perfect smile. That’s it. That’s the real deal.

I’ve been doing it multiple times a day and it’s now overrated. Smiling, to me, channels a lot of things. I do it when I’m happy. I do it when I’m sad. I do it when I’m covered with burning temper. I do it when I’m at the edge of breaking down. I do it even when it is out of my will. 
I smile to make sure that I am…
