Lost for love?

Seaside at Mall of Asia, Manila bay, Philippines

That’s okay. We’ve all been there, including myself.

Sometimes, feeling or being lost is a valuable thing. A reset, you know?

That very sensation is how I ended up in the scene above. There’s no special filter or color correction. I simply took out my phone and snapped it real quick. Just like the perfect steak not requiring any kind of sauce, this picture is perfect just the way it is.

I’d come here and just sit. No agenda, no plans. Just sit, and it never got old.

I was a complete stranger alone in this world across the planet from the world I had always known as home. Yet, the locals were so sincere, so loving, so caring.

Eventually, my time to leave the Philippines arrived, and I found it extremely difficult. Why? At that moment, I realized something.

Home isn’t where you’re from, it’s where you’re supposed to be.
