Following Your Bliss

"If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are—if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time." – Joseph Campbell

Seven years ago, Jerdz and I went on a trip to Corregidor... just recently, we revisited the island during Jay and Michelle's e-session and we were so surprised that our tour guide seven years ago is the same one who will be guiding us! His name is Mr. Ramon Alonzo, he is 75 years old and still kicking =)

I remember him well when we first visited the island... he was wearing a short sleeved button down shirt and had a white beard (kinda reminds me of Col. Sanders)... well, he may look different now, but his enthusiasm is still the same as the day we first met him. For me, he has a way of making history sound a bit more interesting and fun. He lives in Manila and boards the Suncruises ferry to Corregidor everyday.  He said that the Island of Corregidor keeps him young... and I totally believe him... I was truly inspired on how passionate he is in doing what he loves to do... he is indeed one of the few people who are following their bliss... and I admire him for that.
I am sure that life will present many challenges but often times, these are the moments that shape us... at the end of the road, it will be nice to look back knowing that we have lived, fought and followed our dreams. I wish to do just that, too... I hope all of us can also have the chance to follow our bliss in each and every waking day of our lives.

Here are some of the photos taken during our stay there...
Breathtaking view of the shore
I just can't get enough of the Tranvia... I got all excited when I saw this miniature! Now, I have my very own Tranvia! =D
Check this out! Our before and after photo! =)
I certaily hope that this wont' be the last time we visit this island. If you live near Manila, you might wanna visit Corregidor too.  Have a nice Sunday everyone!  =) Pin It
