LOVE is Always the Answer

If there’s ever a time in your life which you feel stuck, down, confused, disoriented, or at a lost for words – think about “love” and how you can respond to your situation in that one simple act.

Like most people, I often face many questions in life which I feel I cannot answer.

What college should I go?

What restaurant should I eat?

How should I respond to this person?

Why is this happening to me?

Questions that leave us speechless and incomprehensible can sometimes be the greatest gifts we receive – it’s through these questions which we truly find ourselves through one simple word: “LOVE”.

If you’re ever faced with a situation where you simply cannot find the answer, always remember that the answer is “LOVE”.

What college do I go to? The one which I genuinely love the most.

What restaurant should I eat? The one whose food I love the most.

How should I respond to this person? With love and compassion as how I would like to be treated.

Why is this happening to me? Although I cannot control certain things in life, I will respond to the world with love and focus my attention on the positive and good things that come towards me.

The answer is simple my friends, LOVE.

Sunrise Walks in Tokyo

Choosing to explore the city before the town wakes is one of the most delightful experiences a traveler can obtain.

There’s a reason why birds sing in the morning.

It’s not just because the air is cooler and sound travels further.

It’s because there’s a glorious essence that comes with rising with the sun.

As someone who’s not an early riser, this is a little unbelievable to say…

Choosing to explore the city before the town wakes is one of the most delightful experiences a traveler can obtain.

The tranquility of sunrise and freshness of morning air is a sensation one can simply not explain.

Start your day before the sun rises, and I assure you, you’ll have the world to yourself.

Love J.J.

Adventures Don’t Always Go According to Plan

Sometimes when we lose sight of what path we’re suppose to keep, we find new paths to venture on.

Adventures don’t always go according to plan.

Day 2 in Tokyo, Japan and our tracks are already rearing off course.

In my mind, that’s how it should be.

Sometimes when we lose sight of what path we’re suppose to keep, we find new paths to venture on.

A failure to enter a 3AM fish market only led to dining in a famous sushi shop for breakfast, getting lost in a sea of stationary, shopping till I dropped (literally) in Ginza, and discovering a local brewed coffee house who’s artistry of caffeine has completely changed by view of coffee culture.

Sometimes when adventures don’t go according to plan, you find better ones along the way.

That’s fine by me. ♥

Love J.J.
