The Secret Paradise

I am pretty sure that everyone of us has time when we just needed to be alone. A time  to where we can consciously process our thoughts, experiences and  feelings. And each of us have his/her  own way of enjoying  that moment of aloneness. Some would catch up reading a good book while others would prefer listening to  their favorite music. Or some would just do nothing but sleep ( and it's what I do especially when  I'm sleep deprived, minsan nga  liliban pa sa trabaho just to get a lot of sleep).

Minsan naranasan ko na din being trapped in a chaotic world. Confined, the only thing that I could do is to run  far far away from it,  just to breath again. I know some people would think  it's a coward thing but whatever they might  think or say, they cannot fathom the immensity  of the f**k  that I don't give.  I know myself better. And I know when I'm going to need that TIME alone. All I want is to breath and have my spirit recharged. That when the time I get myself back, it would be a lot easier for me to face those damnable things in life.


I remember one time, I travelled alone to a place where I have never been  to (way way far from where I am currently situated). I never told anyone about it (not until now). Gusto ko lang talagang mapag-isa noong mga panahong iyon.  But I didn't expect that  that would caused  a friend into deep resentment when she accidentally knew about it. Bakit  hindi man lang daw ako nang-imbita. I maybe selfish but  I just need a break for me to do what I want with nobody at my side. I know somehow I have hurted her feelings  but  I just need to go away to save my sanity.  I need to do that to find my own senses ...of which she finds it difficult  to comprehend. I hope she will get over it. : (


Masarap naman kasi sa pakiramdam kahit minsan lang na maranasan ang mapag-isa at makapagmuni-muni. Walang ibang iniinda kundi ang sarili lang  whilst enjoying the feeling of  being careless and free.



Yung tipong malayo ka from the hustles and bustles of the city.



...and just physically enjoying the beauty of nature ALONE.



It was a good relief for me stepping on those  rocks. It's like my feet were being massaged. And I was just cautious not to cut my skin from the sharp edges hehehe. So I'm like... not giving my full gravity to prevent cuts. : D




It's really like I'm in a paradise. Very calm and quiet. You could only hear the gentle sound of the sea, the chirping of the birds and the splashing of waterfalls nearby. Oh...laid-back...Hays! I didn't even notice I already had a nap under the tree...



That was my secret-now-told trip . lol. I am so lucky that it was a fine day that day. I'd probably have to go back there when I have to. Thanks to my camera and tripod, it wouldn't have been memorable without 'em. lol. And I know it was so lame for me wearing shirt at the waters. I think it would be better if I keep it that way haha.


I can say that being happy in our own time is probably the most useful tool that we can have in life. Being alone doesn't mean you're sad... but just self-reflecting...just spending quality time on your own self. And I tell you, you'd be more resilient after that. : ) : ) : )


 : )'s  for everyone!
 
Extra's:

Naranasan ko yan, madalas yung gusto mong ienjoy ang pagiging mag-isa. Masarap maglibot ng mag-isa, kahit nga mall mas gusto ko solo lang. Ngayon at dahil may partner na ko, graduate na ko dyan. Pero namimiss ko pa rin ang ganyan.

Jag said...

@ Mokong: Hahaha ambilis mo pre ah? nag-eedit pa lang ako hehehe...kya nga habang solo pa ako sa buhay ay ienjoy ko muna ito hehehe...salamat parekoy!

analou said...

I agree with you Jag. There are moments talaga in our lives na we want to be alone to ponder things or simply just to enjoy and be freed of anything. Others may think its selfishness or whatever but we know better what really want....

How are you pala Jag?

I am Xprosaic said...

Weh?! Eh tumatakas ka lang dun sa nabuntis mong babae eh kaya ka umalis at nagtago dyan... lol... joke lang! heheheheheh

Jag said...

Hello madam! Musta na po? I'm good here hehehe...I would probably breakdown if I won't have a regular opportunities to spending my own company hehehe...Thank you! God bless!

Jag said...

@ Xp: Ang hayuff! ibulgar ba? lolz! adik baka maniwala sila hahahaha! Baka ikaw siguro kaya ka pupunta dito weeeee!!!

Lord CM said...

tatanong ko sana kung sino kumukuha ng pix sayo kasi mag isa ka lang eh, buti na lang nabanggit ung tripod at camerand may timer :D

Jag said...

@ Lord CM: OO hehehe nahirapan nga ako mag-set -up ng cam eh para lang makakuha ng maganda ganda hehehe...Thanks parekoy!

Axl G. said...

wow.. lupit nga mga view.. ang sarap tuloy mag-unwind... at mag chill... sana makapagchill din ako bago matapos ang taong to!!
nice shoot sir :D

Jag said...

@ Axl: Gees! Thanks man! I'm sure magagawa mo yan. Ikaw pa! hehehe...

YanaH said...

lahat ng tao once in a while needs their own "me" time.. where they can contemplate or assess themselves.. we all need that.

ako i usually do that. i love travelling din kase. most of the time i go to a place ive never been to.. alone.. wla lang.. sometimes, when i get really fed up with my life, i just walk out and leave (for a while lang naman) walang siguradong destination... basta i feel like ive to get away from everything. but of course, i cannot do that now.. ;))

wala lang, nai-share ko lang

Emmaleigh said...

Jag!!! haha don't worry your girl-friend will get over that hopefully soon. :D

lahat naman kahit minsan gutso yun magpakaisa diba?! :D kaya normal ka dude! haha

MarcoPaolo said...

Lagi ko ring ginagawa ang umalis ng mag-isa... nakakapag-isip ka kasi ng maayos kapag ikaw lang mag-isa. Ngayon nga, plano ko ulit umalis... pero syempre kailangan ko pang pag-isipan. :)

Jag said...

@ Yanah: Tama ka! Lahat tayo, introverts or even extroverts sometimes needs to spare some time alone...dahil sa makati lang din ang paa ko napapadpad din ako kahit saan hahaha...


@ Emma: Hahaha sana nga hehehe...Yey! Normal pala ko hindi pla ako alien hahahaha...Ingat!

Jag said...

@ MarcoPaolo: Go lang ng Go parekoy! Tama ka din kailangan din pag isipan ang pag-alis mag-isa...lalo na nagtatrabaho ka mahirap makatiyempo hehehe...

MinnieRunner said...

I'd love to do that too Jag. I wanted to travel alone. We all need some time alone and see the picture as a whole. And I do hope that your friend could understand that we all need some time ALONE.

Jag said...

@ MinnieRunner: I know in time she will understand. Thanks! : )

♫ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♫ ayu ♫ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♫ said...

kahit ako madaming beses mas gusto ko mag isa lalo kapag wala ako sa mood.. kc kapag trip ko mag isa yun ay kapag hindi ako matino kausap at baka makasakit lang ako ng damdamin kapag nagsalita kaya masaya mag isa pag badtrip oh kaya napagod ka bigla sa magulo at BUSY na mundong ito hehehe :P

ang ganda ng place.nakakarelax ^^

-Parts- said...

Basin naay ka "aybol" hehehehe

Happy weekend! =)

Jag said...

@ ayu: Well thought out ayu chan...tama ka dun sa mga sinabi mo hehehe...kiotsukete ne! : )

Jag said...

@ Parts: Uhmmm...SIKWET! Bwhahaha!

Leah said...

Hmmm... Ngayon lang yata ako nakabasa ng ganitong post, Kuya Jag... Parang "serious"? Hindi ka nagpapatawa... Nice.

Kailangan talaga paminsan-minsan ay mag relax.. get away from the busy life of the city.. and to be "one" with nature, so to speak. Have a "ME" time.. to reminisce, to plan, to think things over..

The place looks amazing. Glad you had a nice trip, Kuya. (Hihi. Pinanindigan ko na talaga ang "kuya") ☺

Jag said...

@ Leah: Medyo serious mode muna later na ang patawa hahaha meganun? hehehe...tumpak ka jan we all have our own time just for ourselves...the place is like a paradise for me...matagal tagal pa ulit bago makabalik dun...ok lng yun kahit mga tita ko kuya ang tawag sa akin ahihihi...

Leah said...

,,, it suits you more, Kuya..

Cher said...

wow, saan yang malaparaisong lugar na yan at mapuntahan din.
salamat po sa pagdalo sa aking tahanan. :)

Super Balentong said...

yeah! masarap din ang mapag isa, magrelax! ang sarap dyan. inisip ko kung kelan ang huling naging mapag isa ako at ninanamnam ang mga pagkakataon.

rainbow box said...

ilalagay ko rin sa wishlist ko na magtravel magisa. kaso lang hindi ako magaling sa directions, baka mawala ako. lol!

kagaganda ng pictures idol! i heart the pictures!!

Jag said...

@ Leah: Ang alin? ang tawagin akong kuya? lol.


@ Cher: Somewhere in Visayas po ahihihi...


@ SB: Oo parekoy try mo minsan masarap tlga sa pkiramdam...masarap kamo kumilos kapag walang mga asungot hehehehe...

@ Rainbow: hahaha ganun b? bili k ng compass ahihihi...since kasama ako sa pictures u heart me na din? lol.

Pong said...

baka may kasama ka talaga ayaw mo lang sabihin, sige na sabihin mo na
yung taga kuha ng pic mo siya ba yun? ahahha

on a serious note kailangan natin yung moments na ganyan, contemplate and relax on things na sa tingin natin complicated or magulo na masyado whether tayo ang magulo or yung nakapaligid or both.

ako pag mag-aasawa ako before ako magpropose to marry my labs, magpapakalayo layo ako. yung place na hindi ko pa napupuntahan (outer space siguro ito) sa Pilipinas to enjoy my last day being single.

sometimes kasi our soul is heard very loud in the silence of our hearts. kaya kung may chance din ako na magawa yan, gagawin ko din siguro. (parang post-comment na ito ahahah)

be blessed sir!

kayedee said...

ayieee ikaw na ang nkapag relax! na inggit much ako :((
hamishu lang jag :))

khantotantra said...

Minsan ninais ko din na mag-byahe mag-isa pero tila wala akong guts para gawin yon.

btw, sino kumuha sayo ng pics mo during trip kung mag-isa ka lang? Naki-usap ka po ba sa ibang pips?

Jag said...

@ Pong: hahaha adik! may camera tripod ako at nakaself-timer lang yan hehehe...magaling lang akong magset up hehehe...tama ka bago mag asawa ienjoy muna ang singleness kasi ibang iba na pag may partner na, hinding hindi mo n ito magagawa or baka malimit n lng...next time pupunta ako ng pluto aalamin ko kung earth ba tlga xa or what hehehe...

God bless!



@ Kayedee:wag kang mainggit. andami kayang pwedeng galaan jan...mas nakakainggit k nga eh hehehe...hamishu din! : )



@ Khanto: bakit nmn ala kang guts? kunsabagay kanya kanyang paraan lang yan hehehe...may tripod ako at nakaself-timer lng yan hehehe...pero minsan pag ala aknong tripod nakikiusap ako sa ibang tao kinakapaan lang ang mukha heheh...

eden said...

I did that a few times before I got married. Ngayon wala na. I go out with friends nalang (puro mga babae). Nice man kaayo ang place imong gi adtoan. Enjoy man kaayo ka. Nindot kaayo ang dagat oi. Lami man iligo..hehehe. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pics.

Jag said...

@ Eden: Mao jud madam dapat savor the moment of singleness jud hehehe...babalik uli ako dun if time permits hehehe...pero hanap uli ako ng iba pang magagandang places hehehe...

Poldo said...

Sometimes you need to be alone just to find yourself. Revitalizing your mind and finding your comfort zone...

Pero!! wag kang mawiling magliwaliw magisa! magsama ka! sama mo kame! hmf! LOL

God bless pare koy!

Jag said...

@ POldo: Halika dito like NOW na gagala ako mamaya wahahahaha!Pero tama ka dun parekoy! minsan lang nmn tong pag-iisa ko kaya pagbigyan mo n ako hehehe...

Nortehanon said...

aha! nagbakasyon ka pala ha. at saan naman yan, iho? sige, di na kita pipilitin kasi secret getaway mo yan hahaha. Lucky you, sa picture ay makikitang maganda ang weather. It's a bummer kung nagpunta ka sa beach tapos biglang umulan malakas, di ba?

well, pareho tayo. I recharge from mother nature (di na man masyado obvious sa mga post ko no?hehehe). Sige lang, byahe lang alone. Masarap din yug may time for yourself. Sometimes you have to shut down your windows and your doors, ika, nga to be able to hear yourself better :)

Pong said...

andami pang palusot na may tripod at timer, sige nga papano tatayo ang tripod sa mga batuhan,sa kalsada, sa bus na may motor sa side? ahahaha

oo na lusot ka na,
hihihi

oo nga parekoy pakicheck na din kung may planet ba talaga sina kokey hihihi

tama yan kailangan talaga natin ng solitude sa buhay, kaya ako madalas akong tumambay sa sementeryo nung college ako binibisita ko si dada ko at the same time tahimik at nakakapag muni muni

be blessed sir!

Jag said...

@ nortehanon: ahahaha bsta somewhere in Visayas xa ahihihi...pero cguro kahit umulan ng malakas lalabas pa rin ako ahihihi...

Tama ka and we all deserved to be alone sometimes...



@ Pong: ahahaha as in palusot daw o adik! madali lang kaya gawin yun hhehehe...hindi ako nanonood nung Kokey eh hehehe...tama ka knya knya lang yan kung saan natin trip magpaka solemn hehehe...

kha said...

selfishness sa ibang di nakakaintindi ang paghahanap mo ng time para sa sarili. As what you postedjust to save your sanity. mahirap talaga pag all fed up ka na on everything around you taz yung moment mo naman na ganito may sasama pa ang loob sau..hahaha eventually she will understand if the time comes that puts her in the same situation.
therapeutic din ang pag iisa, to think more or fix anything that's troubling your mind.

Jag said...

@ kha: Tama ka therapeutic talaga sa sarili lalo na if we meet adversities in life...sana nga bati na kami at sana maintindihan nya ako...Thanks for these words... : )

2ngawzki said...

enhenyero said...

it this place in a province nearby manila lang?

one picture looks like the jurassic part of boracay, lol

fiel-kun said...

Maraming beses ko na din naranasan na magsolo at magmuni-muni sa isang tahimik at magandang lugar dati. Pero ngayon, wala na yung mga place na dating tinatambayan ko kung gusto kong mapag-isa. Tinayuan na ng maraming bahay lols. Kaya in my own room na lang ako lagi nage-emo pag trip ko hehe.

Wuy, ang ganda ng get-away place mo parekoy ah. Hulaan ko, is it somewhere in the Visayas?

stevevhan said...

What you just said like reading books, listening to music and sleeping are my past times. Well most especially if i am very much hurt and tired of life i do that......escaping the city world, go offline, think things about and go simple. Those photos of nature that you just shared are exactly the same as our province in Masbate

You know pag pumupunta kami dun in an emergency situation then we have to make excuses cause i have to absent in school, then suddenly pagbalik ko, exam na, and i usually perfect the exam!galing no?.....i guess it's the nature itself, it recharges you, the culture, i soothing your senses!:)

It's magic!That a very nice trip jag!just continue it!Who cares if you wnat to be alone?!:)

darklady said...

Love na love ko din ang mag isa paminsan minsan.Mas gumagaan ang pakiramdam ko pag gabi na at nasa jeep ako pauwi at naglalakad. Pero yung tulad mo na nakakapunta sa mga ganyang lugar di ko pa na try.hehehe.

Ishmael Fischer Ahab said...

Agree ako sa iyo d'yan. Minsan talaga kailangan nating mapag-isa. We need to meditate and talk to our inner self.

Kaso may problema ako pag mag-isa lang akong bumabyahe eh...wala akong taga-hawak ng camera at tagakuha ng pictures ko. :-P
