Actress and Christian vlogger Rica Peralejo feels all the more that a life of simplicity can be a better option for people.
This thought came to Peralejo as she and her family spent some time in Danjugan Island recently, in Bulata, Cauayan, Negros Occidental, as per her Instagram page today, March 6, where she shared photos of herself and her sons at the beach.
“Don’t we all look healthier with a little bit more color on our faces? Back from @danjuganisland and it has changed us once again,” she said.
While she promised to share more about the entire trip, she, for the meantime, asked her followers to ponder: “If you are gonna get a job, make sure it pays you well enough if it requires a whole lot of time away from your children.”
“If you can’t find any, then adjust and live a super simple affordable life so you never have to give those hours away just like that,” she said. “You know, let me revise that and say that anything else that does not allow you to live a sustainable life must pay you well ha. And of you ask me what is well? Baka (Maybe) priceless.”
“The older I get, the more I am convinced life is really meant to be lived in a small, sustainable, and local way. That we were never made to attempt things [too] big for mere humans to achieve,” she explained.
In Danjugan Island, which is known to be a marine life sanctuary, Peralejo and her family were given lessons about conservation and the place’s marine environment.
“It was more than just a simple beach trip. It was learning about the sea life in a very interesting way. It’s your regular science class only with the practicals within arm’s reach. Before the teachers can even volunteer the information, the kids were already asking questions. It is so inspiring. So impressive, too,” she noted in another post today.
