In the Land of Sumie

We make our destiny. Or is our destiny made for us?

To take life by the horns without caring about the consequences seems like a sin. But to watch opportunities pass you by while waiting for a sign only you approve of seems worse.

I just finished watching ‘In the Land of Women’ where Sarah (a cancer patient) is walking in the grocery store with a friend and describes to him certain experiences in her life that just awakens her and makes her realise that she is exactly where she’s supposed to be. Like when she picks her daughter up from school or when she sees a panting of the Hudson River.

I want as many of those moments as I can possibly fit into my miniscule life. I want to look life in the face when it throws me the illusion of uncertainty and say, “Hey, I am where I’m supposed to be.”

I challenged myself today to do something out of the ordinary. I initially had a couple of outrageous tasks for myself. Bear in mind I’m on holidays and am slowly losing my mind with nothing to do. I wanted to video my attempt at the tasks but chickened out at the last minute. However, I still managed to do the easiest of the tasks; Take a picture with a stranger.

Bryan, you owe me 1/4 of bubble tea.

Rigo and me

I don’t want to look back on my life one day and wonder which part belonged to me. Sarah Hardwicke
