HAY, 2019! What a year you have been! It has surely been a roller-coaster of emotions but all the good definitely outweighed the crazy and the bad.
2019 was a year of uprooting for me.
I got uprooted from my work of almost three years as an associate and transferred to a totally new playing field – the judiciary. I got uprooted from my home of 5 years, and went back to living with my family in Batangas. I now drive (which I never imagined myself doing *ever* what with the convenience of Grab and Uber and sometimes my own personal driver for work); I just bought my own car (which wasn’t really part of the plan and which sounds superrrr crazy to me ‘coz I don’t drive nga and just thinking about the monthly installment is making me insane ). Things just kept happening, and blessings just kept on pouring, and there was nothing left to do but to just take it all in and give thanks.
It was good year of travel too. Traveled to Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, and Thailand. Not so much locally, though. Just the usual hour drive to Tagaytay with friends and family during some weekends.
Finally, despite all the *overwhelming* new things that’s happening in my life all through out the year, 2019 made me realize that I wouldn’t trade anything for my constants. My parents ~ Daddy and Mama ~ my siblings, Gil and Celine, Yna and the rest of the family, and my ultimate soul mate, Ed. They have been my constant source of happiness (and sakit sa ulo sometimes, but never mind that) and everything is just meaningless without them.
Thank you, 2019. You have been so good. Cheers to 2020! Praying for an equally, if not more, blessed new year!
