This was me, same day last year.
Made a last minute-trip to Ubud, Bali.
The scene may be familiar to you.
Same neighbourhood, same place, same platform where Julia Roberts met Ketut Liyer in the movie Eat Pray Love.
That man in the photo is Kitet Liyer’s son. He told me I am a cheerful person. He said that there is so much love and so much of me that I could share in the world. I didn’t really pay much attention on what he said so I did not post these photos then. I did not share this story then.
But today, I want to be reminded of it. And perhaps with whatever and how limited and how little I have (time, presence, patience, knowledge, love), I try my best to share it to the Universe.
To borrow one quote I read recently, ‘I am pieces of all the places I have been, and the people I have loved. I’ve been stitched together by song lyrics, book quotes, adventure, late night conversations, moonlight and the smell of coffee.’
I am pieces of everything and everyone who had came across my life.
Thank you for remembering this day, your warm birthday greetings and all the acts of kindness and love.
May God reward your graciousness.
