Hello 2017

I started my 2017 by reading a book. Indulging in the quiet as people continued to slumber after the previous night’s festivities. Because I realized that expecting from these literary pieces harbours a more positive vibe within me than expecting from people who always make you wait, Β people who make you think the worst of yourself, people who make you think their lives are perfect, people who are on your side only at times when they feel superior, people who won’t clap at your success, and the list goes on and on.

In my two decades of existence, I have just now learned to really love myself first. I am my own constant companion and it is very important that I love and respect myself first, so I can enjoy life with my head held high. Time spent on me, on bettering myself, is a much greater investment than time spent on chasing the ones mentioned above.

Hence, I greet you all readers, ‘Have a wiser year!’, instead of just a ‘Happy new’ one, that would only last for a day or two.


Starting 2012 Right

It’s a year that has a good feel. One I started without a heavy heart, for I’ve left quite a bundle of thorns back in 2011. If I had to choose which parts of last year I was most fond of, they would be the lessons I’ve learned (the hard way, unfortunately). But as they say, “All’s well that ends well.”- which in my case, led to starting the year swell. (Yeah, sorry that was lame. I’m just really fond of rhyming as well) πŸ˜‰

It’s the first time I felt this confident in meeting whatever bullshit head on. And the great thing is, I never planned for it to happen. I just realized, during the first moments of silence this day, that I already have it in me. I’ve changed- I was, and never will be alone because there’s always Someone who listens. And even as my eyes are burning because it’s already 4:30 in the morning, I don’t care. Because I have to let all of this out.

To my mom, I’m gonna start by saying I love you. We don’t say it much because I feel that we’re more like sisters. Who can’t stand each other. But not in a bad way. Because now, I miss you so much even though we pull each other’s hair out when we’re together. But that’s just it. It’s too quiet without you. And even if I don’t admit it (Which I’m admitting now), you’re everything to me. And it’s shameful on my part to take years to let that sink in. Well, my excuse is: I’m a daughter, and daughters are meant to mess up like that (just to end up being wiser in the end ;> ) HEHE. So mom, stay strong and wise, and I’ll be here, making you proud. πŸ™‚

To my pa, you are stronger than you think. The past should be used as as a guide to let you live a better life in the future. You are not alone, but you must learn to let go and move on. πŸ™‚ I do love you. And I admit I have lacked in the past. Every relationship is a two-way process, though. So let’s work on that. πŸ™‚

I believe that starting the New Year with the right perspective and honest feelings is the key to a happy life for the days and months to come. πŸ™‚
