My grown-up new year’s open letter

“Don’t think about the past; don’t worry ’bout the future. Just live in the moment.” – Alicia Keys, (Through It All, 2010)

Before this year ends, I would like to express how thankful I am to the people who made me laugh and cry (out of laughter), who have contributed in my growth as a person, who made time to know me instead of judging me, who made me feel loved (even it’s not my worth), who shared their talents, ideas, knowledge, interest, and passion about everything. Words are not enough on how much thankful I am that God has paved the way for us to meet and be together either for a short and long term.

I hope and pray that as this chapter ends, the next year will be filled with strength and perseverance as we all move forward. I wish you may endure whatever obstacles in life you might encounter. As an imperfect person, I cannot promise anything but whenever you need me, please do not hesitate to approach me.

To whoever hates me in whatever reason:

I’ll get this straight — I will not give you the gift of hate. I refuse to hold grudges. If ever I have offended you in any way, please forgive me. And if ever you hate me because you’re just a pure hater, you’re not worth my time. I just thank you for adding up a spice in my life. 🙂

Whoever you are reading right now, I am thankful that you’ve been a part of my 2015. ❤

“Life is painful. It has thorns, like the stem of a rose. Culture and art are the roses that bloom on the stem. The flower is yourself, your humanity. Art is the liberation of the humanity inside yourself.” 
― Daisaku Ikeda

 

“If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have.” 
― John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

 

There is a destiny that makes us brothers: none goes his way alone,
All that we send into the lives of others comes back into our own.
―Edwin Markham

 

People pay for what they do, and still more, for what they have allowed themselves to become. And they pay for it simply: by the lives they lead.

―Edith Wharton
