Everyone has a story: RV Panambo

Today’s mini-interview is with RV Panambo, who describes herself (on her blog Chasing Adventure) as “a proud Filipino,” “a tattoo collector,” “a gypsy soul,” and “a walking contradiction.”

(If you’re interested in being interviewed for this blog or have someone in mind for me to ask, please let me know or leave a note in the comments section.)

What is one of your dreams for your life?
I dream to be a sought-out freelancer who gets to travel around the country or the world. Travel like a gypsy; go wherever the wind takes me.

What is something on your bucket list?
I have quite a lot here. And at the same time, I have this long-term goal to travel around the world that I carry around with me. I used to keep that dream in silent mode and not to talk about that more often because I don’t have the monetary to do it for now yet.

What is the best advice you ever received?
“You’ll never be the best. However, you can be original.”

Comparing yourself to others can be good, if it’s done with a purpose of improving yourself. But be always reminded that your mode of expression is unique, and exclusive only to you. If you ignore your originality, the world will never see it or know it, and it will be lost without ever having seen the light of day. Find out what is unique about you then develop that.

Thanks for sharing your time and dreams with us, RV!

    I love the best advice you RV was given, that being original is more probable and attainable than being the best. So many of us shy away from spreading our wings fully because we know we can’t be eagles, but so many of us should be reminded that even butterflies are wonderful, too.

      That is such a great saying! Thanks for taking the time to share that with us, Mik!
