I studied my first degree in the Philippines.  It was an amazing 4years with numerous experiences that I believe have contributed to make me the man I am today.  It’s been about 8years since I graduated and I was fortunate to meet up with an acquaintance of mine in London, few weeks ago.  He had just finished his medical degree in Manila and moved to London with plans to practice here.  It was good to see him and we spent the evening recollecting on time in the Philippines and chatting about our plans for the future.  He updated me on changes with people and places we both knew; apparently everybody had grown up and followed different paths.  Some were still in the Philippines, others weren’t; some were married, others weren’t and some had grown up while of course, some hadn’t.  We traded stories and the lessons we each had learnt along the way.  It was good to see him and appreciate how life was happening to everybody we know.  I thought about myself over the last decade.  I believe I’m not the same person I was and I’m getting more balanced as a man as I go through life with an open heart.  This makes me smile.

I would love to hear any feedback, suggestions or stories about your own journey…
