Before the year ends, I wanted share the best things and the not so best happenings in the year I’m gonna bid goodbye few hours from now. This is just going to be a short blog in bullet and I will try to be minimalist yet organized this year hahaha.
-Lost a lot of pounds! This my my best achievement so far in fitnes as this year marked my goals! All glory I give to God.
-Been out of the country twice
-Visited good places locally (Cebu, Baguio, Naga/CamSur)
-Got salary increase
-New boarding house, new housemates, new friends
-Got my Sun line re-programmed, new Globe line with BB, and HTC and basic Samsung
-Opened my TD
-Reunited with college and high school friends
-Family going stronger
-Got closer with Eunice and Daisy, found a new friend with Raisa.
For the not-so-best things, I still thank God for I know it made me stronger and has opened new things for me. This year, I had my relationship cracked and almost broken with my best friend for 6 years. 😦
So today I am welcoming 2013 with a positive outlook. I am excited to continue my fitness to weight goal! More travel! More blessings! Let’s do this!
December 15, 2012.
Ten days before 2012 Christmas, I was with a boy named Ali in Star City. He was one of those kids who were invited to church for Saturday JIL-UBELT Children’s Zone, an outreach to kids in UBELT area. My friend Hanna heads this ministry and I got the chance to be invited and be part of C+Zone goes to Star City event. The kids were around 30 and so the guardians. Ali and I are with Abrielle and Ella, guardians of Ali’s friends’ Mac and Butchok. The boys headed for horror booths, roller coaster rides, and others. It was a tiring yet fulfilling day.

I must admit, I don’t feel cool when I drink. I honestly feel so wasted. But that was the chance for me to feel that so wasted moment and finally get up to move on. It’s like when I come to that point of hang over, I would pray hard and feel that need to not feel that again. To feel that hangover is far more painful than the emotion and I wouldn’t want to feel that again. Some kind of teaching self some lesson.
But hey! I know this isn’t a very accepted reason. I cannot compromise myself to it. I can’t even reason that I’d be a responsible mess cleaner after.
I read in one of Mitch Albom’s book these paragraphs,
“If you hold back on the emotions–if you don’t allow yourself to go all the way through them–you can never get to being detached, you’re too busy being afraid. You’re afraid of the pain, you’re afraid of the grief. You’re afraid of the vulnerability that loving entails. But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive in, all the way, over your heard even, you experience them fully and completely.”
― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie
Maybe that was a way for me to detach. To pain myself to finally move on. I assume this is a wrong reasoning.
