A part of growing up is yearning for independence–for the time that we can finally make our own decisions, pursue our greatest dreams and passions like travelling, perhaps. But with all these things that we want to do, places to go or no matter how old we get, we will always be a baby in the loving eyes of our mothers.
Meanwhile, this man knows exactly how to assure his mom that he is doing just fine while embarking on his adventures. The 27-year-old model Jonathan QuiÃ±onez quit his day job to travel the world–alone. And nothing can get any sweeter and thoughtful than what he pulled off for her.
Jonathan started a photo series aptly titled “Mom I’m Fine” showing his snapshots from various trips around the world with a sign saying “Mom, I’m Fine.”
Few days after every trip, he updates his mom through his photos in different places.
And we totally get him. Shout-out to those who constantly get calls, texts or reminders from their moms during out-of-town trips or any other ordinary day for that matter. Mothers rock!
The same message is written on the palms of his hands when he went skydiving in Mexico.
“Whatever your age is, if you have a Latin mom and a passion for adventure, you will have to find a way to tell her that you are fine. This is my way,” Jonathan shares on his Instagram account.
His mom surely appreciates the thoughtful gesture.
Happy son, happy mom. Why not?
Here he is goofing around with a monkey in Costa Rica.
Jonathan also tried scuba diving in Panama. He still had the “Mom I’m Fine” poster with him underwater, of course.
Anywhere he goes, in fact.
Like another one here in Colombia.
Salsa in the streets of Cuba, he captioned this photo.
And a Caribbean trip is also included in the list.
It’s as if he was with his mom during the entire time he was away. Isn’t that sweet?
