Dec 18, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Anticipation

St. Andrews, Scotland, taken on November 26, 2016

Anticipation is a form of motivation that drives me to go forward and gives me hope for a better tomorrow. There is always something that I am anticipating, making me feel that I am alive and that my heart is beating. Last month, I saw the most beautiful clouds after a sunset in St. Andrews with a dear friend. Though I am not sure when I will see him again, I am sure that I will, and I am already looking forward to the next visit. And that is the anticipation that keeps me optimistic until the reunion 🙂

Nov 30, 2016 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Sunset at St. Andrews

St. Andrews, Scotland, taken on November 26, 2016

Catching the sunset at the beach (West Sands, I believe?), I gasped in awe at the wonderful sight in front of me. I brought back many precious memories from my weekend in St. Andrews, though I lament that I couldn’t stay. At least…the feelings that I experienced those two short days will remain in my heart.

Jan 24, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic

Glasgow, Scotland, taken on August 24, 2015

It’s hard to feel optimistic in Glasgow during the rainy seasons, and sometimes it feels like every season is a rainy season. When the dark clouds loom over your head every day for three weeks straight and you haven’t seen a sliver of sunshine, it may feel like the sun will never appear again. You have forgotten what blue skies look like – you ARE blue. But one sunny afternoon is all that it takes to restore hope in this city amidst the seemingly never-ending rain. The sun will rise again!
