2014: Part 1 - A Quick Look Back At 2013

The past year has been one-hell-of-a-good-ride with occasional bumps on the road. 

Why I said that? Well, 2013 just gave me more than what I want & need - and it's not always a kind of thing which makes me smile after. As usual, the book of 2013 won't be an interestingly must-read without those challenges that shared the limelight of an equally joyful year. 

In 2013, new friendship has been found and formed. People from different walks of life - equally exciting personalities entered the scene. Others made a grand entrance in my circle and some made their presence felt in a very memorable way. Few were notable and worth keeping while others I still need to discover and get to know more. There were so many great stories and wonderful meetings. The laughter we've shared were contagious and the fellowship was circled with so much positive energy and acceptance.

Also in 2013 - there are friendship ties that end in separate ways, familiar faces that suddenly zoom out of the circle, plans that didn't work out, dreams that are still yet to be chased. A lot has happened and numbering them won't take forever. Some were just good, a lot pretty amazing, while others kind-of neither hit the right button nor jive with the same music - that you don't want to remember it entered your life's spectrum. I've never regretted any one of them though as it brought me great lessons and  realizations. Admit it or not, those events have spiced up my journey in 2013. 

As expected, life gave me some pretty interesting emotional- aerobics. Bent out my patience more than the usual that I can allow or give. 

But the great part of 2013 is where I'd want my memory to stay. I'd just shrug-off those not interesting parts and learn the lessons that it intentionally want me to contemplate. Concentrating on the down side won't benefit an already bruised me. So, burying the hatchet filled with emotion overload is the best thing to do and face the coming year with a much stronger and steady resolve. 

And I grandly welcome the new year - that is - 2014!

  2. Hi Daddy Jay. Back for good na talaga to.

    You're one of the great people that I met in 2013 and hopefully for the more years to come, we'll have more memories to make as friends. Say hello to Caleb for me. Hope I met him too this year.
