I live by that Les Brown quote since sophomore days. From then on, I never settled for less. When I do something, I make sure to give my all no matter what it takes. Odd, but I feel a sense of fulfilment, even if at times, I don’t land where I wish to be. That’s life - and you must live against negativity and dismay, or adversity will eat you alive.

You’ll never witness your full potential unless you push yourself further. It will be tragic if you refuse to fly even if the universe will allow you to go as high as you can.
Now while we’re at it, dreamers seem to always fantasize about things, but really, we don't end there. We're unstoppable. We repel getting caged. We’re always bound to the outdoors, believing that there’s more to life than where we are right now.
Aligned with that is my recent trip to Pampanga with the TLC Network and Sky Cable, which I’ll blog about separately. :) Since it’s my first time there and we were off to check out renowned restaurants and spots in the province, I made sure to bring my Outdoor backpack to house the “Dreamer Essentials” - camera to take photos that I can look back to and dream of, laptop for blogging while on the road, kikay kit so I’m always prepared, pen and paper to jot down my learnings, and earphones to listen to my favorite jams while thinking about our exciting stops.
Are you a dreamer, too? Do you love discovering new things? If yes, high five! You might be the one Outdoor’s looking for! :)
