seven years 🌻

Seven years ago, I finally found enough courage to put myself and my thoughts out thereβ€”- crude, ruffled, naive, vulnerable, whatever, I put it out there. πŸ˜…


I remember how that week, I was asked what was it that I loved doing the most. “Read and write!” I excitedly told the speaker on that forum we attended.

“So do you have a blog?” she asked. And that struck me, I told her I had always wanted to start one, and that, in fact, I was starting one right that very weekend. Hahahaha. And I did start a blog that very evening. πŸ˜†

I guess that’s how and where I’d always find myself whenever I made big choices in life. On sudden will-o’-the-wisps that occur to me on weird days, and eventually lead to consequences that, surprisingly, I never had any regrets about. πŸ˜…

Much like how I went to the salon one day and decided I’ll keep my hair short forever, or that day I went to Miagao, from the city, after I got a 2.25 in my BA class and I have decided that I was going back to the boondocks to shift to Psychology. So much, also, like that time when I decided to enrol for the board exams review and take the Psych boards, while working full time and in the middle of my Masters program, and I filed a LOA and went for it. Hahahaha. So now I still have gorgeous hair πŸ˜…, and I have a license, and I’m graduating, yaaay. 😭

Not bad, eh? I think that I may have lived a pretty decent risk taker life. πŸ˜†

Anyway, what I had been meaning to say is that this whole writing life that I have here, where I’m not even bothered if there were real people reading my write-ups, has been very worthwhile. πŸ˜… Coz I get to do what I love, I get to let off some (no, so much) steam, I get to process my mixed up head & feelings, and I get to say, β€œYes I have a blog even before the new generation of political bloggers surfaced”, when asked. πŸ˜…

Also, I like to think that, perhaps, my writing may be giving warm hugs to people who might be needing it on some days. And it feels really nice thinking about that. 😊

So yeah, it pays to take that leap of faith, my friends, really.

And yaaay, we’re up for some good changes (on the blog). πŸ”œ πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

I just hope that this crisis has put so many things in your life in proper perspective, and it has changed you (and all of us) for the better.

Stay safe and stay faithful, my friends! 🌻
