There’s only one YOU.

That’s your POWER.

Get up! Be your own hero!

…I am Ross, 34-year-old working Filipina expat in the Middle East Doha Qatar, my second home for 6 years. Spent my childhood years with a strong rural family background in the Philippines. The experience of being peasant drove me to dream big and break the chain, applied scholarships to finish studies, became working student, earned Bachelor’s degree with flying colors and landed a well-paying job.

…But sometimes, things didn’t always go as planned. I became single mom at age of 23 and forgot in a long while that there is life outside the box. 5 years later, I kicked my ass off, left my home country in search for greener pastures, carrying with me the hope of finding life again. And here I am, considering myself a “late bloomer” and a strong believer that dreams never ends.

…Living in a home away from home is not an easy journey. So this blog is a collection of my thoughts on discovery of my passion for runningtravelling and life in general which I call “my happy pills” that have gotten me through a lot of hard times which I know most of us can relate to.

Welcome to my world.
