Misunderstood (오해 된)

While the feeling of the New Year is still upon us I have been spending my time looking back on last year with much concern for this year.  As mentioned in my September post Having It All Together vs Staying Afloat In Life (삶에 다 모두를 함께 vs 살아 남보라) I made some uprooting changes in…

Dealing with Death (죽음을 받아들이는)

Not a light topic especially during one of the most joyous times of the year I am content with discussing this topic as this past week marks one year since my 12-year-old dog passed away due to kidney failure. Death is a hard experience to go through no matter if it is a family member…

Box of Chocolate (박스 어브 초콜릿)

If life were really like a box of chocolate as metaphorically mentioned in the classic 1994 film Forest Gump then everyone would be able to fix or re-do the order of life events and experiences they do, see, or create(*if they could see everything inside the box).  In my case and in my life I am…

Dared To Leap (감히 도약하고)

Goodbye October, hello November and a chilly brief fall/early winter.  As I return to blogging weekly(hopefully) soon I would like to speak from the heart about my continual growth and discovery of courage after what some might say purposefully falling from grace or what others might think as diving head first into an abyss. But,…

My [Same As Me] Friend (나 처럼 똑같은 친구)

“Time will pass and seasons will come and go [but friends will stay the same] ~ Roy Bean.”  I recently used this quote in one of my online posts because no matter how many seasons pass I know that friendships with some of my closest friends will still stay the same.  As mentioned in a…

The Giving Friend (기빙 프렌드)

In reviewing my blog’s most published topics I have realized that I write more about love, travel, and family and have not written too much about my friends, friendships, and ties.  Having as many close friends as fingers on my hands I thought that I should dedicate a few posts this year to the friends…

Family Migration(가족 이주)

Often on my mind as well as those with scattered relatives I wonder why families choose to migrate.  Sometimes for better livelihoods, sometimes for more freedoms, and very often in pursuit of one’s dreams for themselves or for one’s family.  Family migrations have been apart of human history since our nomadic days.  But can one…

Thoughts on Breaking up? (헤어지는 생각?)

If thoughts of breaking up are on your mind then some may ask you what might be wrong in your relationship.  Truthfully, there are positives and negatives in all relationships similar to yin and yang.  If the balance is steady then any issues that a relationship may face can weather any storm.  That is how…

Summer Plans (여름 계획)

Summer is officially here and just like last summer I plan to write a few posts related to childhood stories, new experiences with old friends, family time, and love.  This past month I was somewhat disconnected in blogging due to some events taking place.  However, as my birthday month kicks-off I have been re-building myself…

Inspiring Millennials – No.3 (영감을주는 천년 세대)

Can you inspire others?  Not simply a yes and no answer type question the meaning behind inspire is not concrete.  Some people can say yes that they can inspire others because of their charisma, well-verse use of words, personalities, career positions, or even creative ideas.  While others may say no this question if they feel…

K-Travel: Boryeong Mud Festival(보령머드축제)

(my travel story continued from K-Travel: Jeonju (전주)) Once we arrived at the Jeonju bus terminal we were able to find the time-table schedule of Boryeong/Daecheon Beach bound buses.  Purchasing tickets for a noon bus me and Kevin sat down to wait until boarding time.  Within twenty minutes we left to stand in line for…
