2012: A Year of Growth1/02/2013
I already bid 2012 and all its dramas goodbye and now, I'm welcoming 2013 with all the optimism I could muster. It has been a very versatile year for me - a year of mixed emotions and bittersweet memories. As I reached 25 years of existence, I faced tremendous whirlwinds in my life that taught me lessons, in the easiest and he hardest way possible, that I will never ever forget because they have engraved one thing in my heart forever - GROWTH.
"This is the time in my life where everything is falling apart and at the same time, it's all coming together" - Dashboard Confessional, A Year in the Past Forever in the Future.
To all the people who have been a part of my very challenging year - my loving family who has always been there for me and with me in every aspect of my life, my friends, most especially Sarah, who have been a source of comfort, joy and insults when times get rough and tough, my workmates who I shared all my stresses with, the Photobombers who have been a source of inspiration in photography and cruel tactics in life even though I have been missing in action for a long time, the new people I met through OHNAP who have become instant family and have made my post-graduate course and seminars very fun and worthwhile, the people I met through Davao Bloggers who have been very influential and helpful in developing a passion I never knew existed in my life, to my one and only love of my life, Joshua, and his family, for teaching me lessons I need to learn and for helping me overcome the challenges in my life, my blog readers who have spared a few minutes of their time to drop by my blog but have made a very huge impact to my esteem, to the random people I met, listened to and learned from their life stories, and mostly to my Creator, my God, whom I have grown closer with during my moments of darkness, doubt and desperation - my humble words of gratitude will never be enough to show my warmest appreciation to you all for being a part of my growth.
Thank you very much!
The memories we all had in the past will forever be embedded in the future.
I'm looking forward to more memories in 2013 with a better version of me. Let's choose and create happiness!
May you have a very blessed 2013!
