October Opinions

It is October once again, my favorite month (my birthday month!) and I am anxious.  Turning another year older makes me wonder if I have, if at all, become any day wiser.  My opinions are mine alone and though may be influenced by elements around me, and by the experiences I go through, it is unique to me and thus matter only to myself.  Have I indeed matured?  My musings become more pronounced at this time of the year.  What have I done?  What have I accomplished?  What did I miss?

Recent vacation to Tagbilaran, Bohol, Philippines.
I think this year, I have traveled more.  I've been to old and new places with my family and that is something I am thankful for.  That I've got the means, the health and the capacity to do so...I am thankful, indeed.  In the UAE, we've been to Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah.  We've spent weekends in both Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

Back in Manila, my family decided to explore the Visayas as we spent a few days in Cebu, Bohol and even explored Intramuros in Manila.  So, travel-wise I've had a good share of travelling and exploring. I've tried to retrace footsteps in the old places and have marked my footprints in the new.

In my journeys, I have kept my family close and tried my best to be wife, mother, daughter, friend, colleague.  I'm good for a few more destinations and I'm excited to travel to further places, not just in my mind :)
