This may be such a cliche answer to everyone but there will never be a better place for me but my home back in the Philippines. Home is where the heart as the saying goes and sayings are shaped based on truth.
There may be a place where we go to because we find it relaxing or a place we like because we have fond memories of it. Or a place we find beautiful because of its great great scenery, however; all these things, are for me, all found at home. So cliche or no, my home is my favorite place in the world!
Particularly, as I am living away from home, I really get to miss it a lot more. 😦
Today, the last day of 2013, I am going to let go and say goodbye to this year. As I’ve said, this year is not for me, but I am ready to leave it all behind, and finally move forward. I will carry with me, in my mind and heart, the good memories with the people who cares and the important lessons I’ve learned in my darkest hours.
And now, as I welcome 2014 with more optimism and promise, I would not just wish for it to be a better year… I will make it a better one.
2013 was not particularly good to me. To those who have followed my blog since day 1 will know of this, for I have posted a lot of “emo” posts during my down moments.
The first 8 months was a dark period. I was stressed. I was depressed. I had huge fights with my dad. All of this because I fell in love with a man society deemed unworthy of me. Needless to say, the relationship ended. I was angry and in so much pain. I was left bitter from it all.
As for my favorite memory, I’m afraid this year has had more bad than good, that it’s not easy to pick a favorite.
I’m hoping this coming year would be better. I pray it would be a happier one, especially now that I’m learning to be happy again. Especially now that I’m loving again…
Can I be literal here? Cause I seriously can’t live without clean air, food and water. No? Ok let me see…
Internet? No, I don’t think that’s right. I’m a 90’s kid and I’ve lived most of my life without internet and I was doing fine. Lipgloss? Mobile phones? Television? Computer? Ah, but I’ve never really put too much stock on them. How about money? No siree! In fact I do wish it didn’t exist! Hmph!
Aaaahhh! I know now… Books.
A world without the existence of books. That would be a sad world indeed.
