24 Sep

I just turned 22 yesterday and damn I feel young! The world is laid for me to conquer – that’s how it feels. And I have always been able to conquer it in my own little way.

My plans don’t usually happen as I have plotted them out, it turns out way better most of the time. And the dawn of my 23rd year on earth gave me new hopes, and am really excited what lies ahead. Challenges are there, but whenever I look back, I realize how far I have gone so these little blocks and bumps are but temporary and too shall pass. In my hearts of hearts though, I wish it happens soon. In between those really great days and my normal days, I would continue to dream. I have always been changing, and I guess, learning, but in the recent folding of life, I have come to be certain of certain things. As I embrace my new sitch, I also affirm my life’s purpose. I WOULD WRITE. I WAS BORN TO WRITE. Meeting people of substance lately made me reevaluate the purpose for which I am striving. And I have found myself in the firm conviction that I am made to tell stories, to talk about life and its beauty. I have also come in peace with my past. I used to fly from the dark muddy chapters of my childhood but now, I am just happy to have gone through what I have gone through. My tomorrow looks bright, all because I went through a dark past. Every successful soul did, a dark chapter only preludes a bright one. And I am looking ahead, never again looking back in pain.

This year also is my first year earning, I have lived a rather sheltered life in spite of the many things that has happened, so am really very happy to start taking care of myself. Am learning far many things; great and small – all essential to daily life and its greater whole. Am seeing value over other things now, worth over price. And having said that, I am confident in saying that am on a phase where am very happy to splurge. Am living a life, I have stopped chasing happiness as I have learned how to make it follow me. Am inspired to take care of myself as it is the only first step into taking care of others, too. Thou can give only what thee can give oneself. I am also more inlove with MAGIS now, it used to be only a mantra that we ateneans are familiar with, but now am more than in love with it. Am pretty much living it.

Oh well, I have shared enough I guess.

I’d end this with a text message a friend sent me.

Let’s live, anyway tomorrow we’ll die.
