The year 2012 has been truly awesome for me. Yes, it was full of dramas. And, it was also the year that I got to travel to two (2) countries and eleven (11) provinces. It was the year that I got to visit five (5) IP tribes and the year that I got to figure out what I really want.
It was the year that let me experience heartache and being alone, 10x over. And, experience the blessing of family and friends, 100x over.
It was the year I got what it is to get the love of people around me. It was the year that I visited again the hometown of my father, Nueva Ecija, with the intention of spending time with my relatives after about 7 years.
It was the year I gave up the semi-corporate world and the big bucks. It was also the year that I chose to be with my first love, that is development work.
It was the year I found courage to inspect through myself and love and hate and love again what I see. Yes, sometimes the process is longer. But, what the heck? I choose the transition and everything that comes with it.
So, 2012, that was one helluva ride. Thank you for being awesome. 2013, let’s rock!
