…To Be Thankful

Thanksgiving day. A day to eat, spend time with friends and family, travel, set up a Christmas tree and decorations (because it’s never too early to start up the Christmas spirit), and most importantly, reflect on what we are thankful for. Besides the American tradition, other countries like Canada, Grenada, South Korea, China, Vietnam, Germany,…

…To See Beyond the Obstacles

“Nothing stops the man who desires to achieve. Every obstacle is simply a course to develop his achievement muscle. It’s a strengthening of his powers of accomplishment.” -Thomas Carlyle Life is unpredictable. It is not a straight forward path like taking a boat from Cataño to San Juan (see the picture above), instead, we may…

…Looking for Paradise

Has it ever happened to you that some days you just wake up with your mind in blank? Well today for me it wasn’t one of those days. Today  as I opened my eyes the lyrics of a song were stuck in my head. Today I woke up “looking for paradise” . “Everybody say oh oh…

…To Be Fearless

F E A R. I bet that if there’s one emotion that everybody in this world has felt at some time in their life is fear. Fear of heights, fear of falling in love, fear of death, fear to lose someone and countless of more fears that I could keep mentioning and I wouldn’t finish….

…To Be Happy

H A P P I N E S S . A simple nine letter word and yet so complicated. We spend our whole lives waiting for something to happen so we can say that we are happy, but we don’t actually enjoy the present and get to be happy. It seems like there’s always something…

….On My Way

One year and a half ago, the biggest journey of my life started: my life as an optometry student. It has been an amazing year in which I have gained a lot of knowledge,  developed new skills, and made new friends. However, it has been also one of the toughest year I have experienced so…
