Looking Back

2009 had been a full year for me. To sum it up, it was a year of threes. What threes?

 - Three new places i got to visit for the first time: Bolinao, Hundred Islands (oh yes, first time :p) and Davao

- Three things I never thought I could, but did try: Surfing, Zipline (the highest, fastest, and longest in Asia pa!) and work (and actually enjoy) at PM shift.

- I had three jobs: office manager, writer/editor, and my current one at Avon.

- I had three homes: Marikina, Cavite and Pasay. I did move a lot :p

- I did three things which I promised myself I would never do. That is between me and my other self :p

It was a crazy beautiful year. I made lots of new friends, I think I kinda lost touch with a few old friends, but I reconnected/stayed connected with the true ones.

It was also a year of insights and realizations. Going from one side of the fence to the other, I somehow got to see things as they really are. And my mind began to expand and understand some things that never really made sense to me before.

I had my share of mistakes, oh, a lot of them :p. Pero, I've no regrets except that maybe they hurt some people with or without me knowing it along the way. For that I feel remorse. But basically, I'm not too uptight anymore that I can easily forgive myself now for my shortcomings. Charge them to experience na lang. What's important to me is that I stayed true to myself, and to people around me.

This year, I only hope for less and more. Less wants, less errors, less expectations and more love, more joy, more quality time, more passion - for life in general. And if it's not too much to ask, more moolah na rin. hahaha.

Happy New Year everyone! Let's ROCK 2010!!! =D

  15. i'm glad to be part of the true ones you kept in touch with. 2009 has been a very eventful year for you sister and i'm very happy to know that you've crossed the other side of the fence and realized that the world isn't just black and white, it's a whole rainbow of colors (including some shades of gray). here's hoping that 2010 will be just as colorful for both of us. wink**.wink** PS: I know one of the last 3 things, so pag nagkita tayo asahan mo kukulitin ko what's the other 2 hehe :D
