Looking Back and Looking Forward To

Hello everyone! I hope you had a blast celebrating Christmas and New Year.

I spent the holidays with my parents and my brothers. Typhoon Quinta and amihan kept us inside our house most of the time which meant lots of bonding time for us. Also, our residence does not have internet connection so I had more “me-time.” More “me-times” meant more opportunities to reflect on my life and more time to plan for missions to change the world. Ha! Kidding ๐Ÿ˜‰

So this blog went on hibernation for some time because Miss N was either tired with lots of work brought about by the new educational scheme in the country, she did not have access to good internet connection, or she was just simply lazy to go online (Hey, I’m just being honest! Or should I blame the weather?).

Anyway, many thanks for spending time here in my little space in the cyberworld last year (and in the past 4 years). I appreciate all your comments and kind words which are truly encouraging. You just don’t know how much you have enriched my life and my understanding of the world around me.

Over the last year, I have learned one very important thing in my life: to completely surrender to where fate had led my heart. So I had to shed things that have become part of my life for so many years. I’ve learned to slowly start letting go of them. I had to. And this blog, and you, my dear readers, were part of that journey. So thank you.

The year 2012 saw more children smiling because of your generosity and I know I cannot thank you enough for your support. But that is all I can do: to say thank you.

Last June, a travel and lifestyle magazine made a full-page feature of myself and this blog. And I am grateful that the editorial staff respected my anonymity. So yes, Miss N pa rin ako sa feature nila ๐Ÿ˜‰ If they’ll ever read this (I hope they will), I’d like to thank them again.

2012 had also sent me angels, great new friends who, despite my being a faceless blogger, have blessed me with their trust and friendship. Thank you so much.

Also, I am grateful for a friend whom God brought me this year, a kindred spirit who has trusted me so much with some pieces of her life. Salamat sa ‘yo. Just to let you know your past does not define you, it simply brings you to where and who you are now. I’ll be forever grateful our paths have crossed but I’ll be forever wondering how you have managed to pass your neuro-psych screening hehehehe. Peace!

I am thankful for my 4-year-old camera, the kit lens which I am pushing to its limit, and the simple moments and lessons in life that present themselves in front of my camera.

I have A LOT of things to be grateful for. Too many to list here. They are rays of sunshine which I’ll pack into my suitcase and take them with me to carry me through another year.

2013 has begun. Another year to live and celebrate life. And I look forward to A LOT of things. Things to do. Things to discard. Things to change. New things to welcome.

So I welcome you, again, to this blog, my little corner in the world wide web. For another year of celebration. For another year of exchanging thoughts and inspirations. For another year of friendship. For another year of sharing. For another year of getting our lives entangled in one big web. For another year of fun. For another year of learning together.

May this year be the beginning of something that you seek. May this year provide you with the opportunity to start anew. May 2013 offer you with all that you hope for.
