 Wisdom is a key to travel light in this world

                         -- Lia 


 I just bought a new 6-wheel luggage to give me ease carrying my heavy luggage. 

Interestingly, the brand of my new luggage is “Wisdom.”


 We find wisdom in many ways, in many places and in many things.  

I simply do.

Photos are taken in Sagada, Philippines. 
Looking forward to spring!

To whom do you owe gratitude? parents, teachers, mentors, friends, relatives, colleagues?

No one is self-made. You are where you are now because someone, somewhere, 
helped you along the way.

 "In everything,  give thanks."

"It is attitude that makes the difference. It is acknowledging that no matter how dark the clouds, there is a silver lining; that every dark valley has a way out; that every night is followed by a dawn; and that everything, except eternity, will eventually be over."
