Gone to sea

“Don’t take anything for granted, because one minute it can be there and the next minute it can’t, and it happens so quick. When the negative stuff comes around, just let it go. It all leads to the positive as long as you keep a positive attitude. Enjoy everything you get. That’s one of the most important things in life, is really appreciating it because we only get to do this once and it’s not for a long time.” ~Jay Moriarity, surfer

Oh the places you will go!

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…” ― Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Be tough enough to follow a dream

“If you doubt you can accomplish something, then you can’t accomplish it. You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.” ― Rosalynn Carter

Hold on to your dream

Amihan Boy, Pangoy in Dahican, Mati, Davao Oriental Hold on to your dream Author unknown There’s a voice that calls to some of us From somewhere deep inside A voice that will not give us peace, Until at least we’ve tried To catch that bright elusive star, Though foolish it may seem To those not driven as we are To hold on to a dream.

Shine

“Do not be afraid to shine, This world needs what you have to give. Open up the areas of your being; Expose them to yourself – to others. You are valuable. You are unique. You have much to give. Do not be afraid to give it.” Excerpt from the poem, “Risk” By Fran Watson, 1987 This photo of a skimboarder in Dahican Beach, Mati, Davao Oriental was published in SeAir’s InFlight Magazine as one of the top ten hot destinations to visit the Philippines in 2011
