A getaway in December was what I was looking forward to in the last half of 2017. I knew I wanted to go back to Siem Reap to see Angkor Wat again, and there I was with my siblings and my fiance.
Remind yourself to breathe, to savor each moment, to be in the now.
I haven’t been journaling for the longest time, it might be the reason why I can’t remember most of the days anymore. It has been my habit to write even the mundane things I did, it’s my way of preserving the days so that when I can’t remember, I just go back to my journal to read my daily entries. I would not be able to do that for May 16 through August 1. I haven’t written anything, not even bullets.
I didn’t like opening doors before. It made me scared because I don’t know what to expect. When I was outside, I was so scared there might be monstrous creatures inside an unfamiliar door. When inside, I didn’t want to go out – thinking there might be bad people lurking and ready to kill and do inhumane things. I didn’t want to see the ugly. I only wanted to be comfortable and safe.
