I am still lost for words on what to write here is really an understatement. I’ve been attempting feebly to organize my thoughts in two notebooks— the pink and blue notebooks. The pink notebook is supposed to be for love stories I’ve been trying to make since 2008 and as of late last year, it had four character changes, and it still remain as an outline of the stories. Another flimsy reason why these stories are shelved out is maybe I am still having internal debate of whether or not ten out of the fifteen stories will have a happy ending. Meanwhile the blue notebook is more of the “editorial/opinion” type regarding the issues I’ve been meaning to give my thoughts since 2010. Assuming that I will be able to write something about it, there will be developments like that of the RH bill, now the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Act of 2012 (yes, I am pro-RH), the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, the impeachment of Chief Justice Corona (oh my, it’s almost a year), and even the “ flash points” in the Middle East, among other things. I also remembered making notes in my mobile phone about my daily thoughts, of the places, food, movies and books, some outline about my 2012, my recent Indochina trip and the old churches. I think I should set-aside some days to re-organize all of these, pictures included.
The world did not end as what the Mayan’s predicted and was taken out of context by some, instead a new cycle begins. As it unfolds, I am setting my sights this year to be the year where dreams come true, braving new heights, dreaming some more, laugh and love some more, and definitely the phoenix will raise once more. And I just have to agree to what @rapplerdotcom tweeted last January 4 “#ThoughtLeaders Now is not the time to delay ambition, nor settle for the mediocre. Here’s to daring greatly in 2013!” As always, I will be taking it one day at a time. I have resolved that I will do more this year, and do things that will make me happy, after all making a conscious effort to be happy is really the way to be, because you and I deserve it, after all it’s still a happy place to be (despite of and in spite of). And yes, we should not forget to have a thankful heart.
I will definitely take what the Phantom said… “Let your mind start a journey to a strange new world…. Let your soul take you where you long to be.”
Here’s wishing you a happy and blessed 2013.
