The year behind

1. Intake all the pain, let it out, you will be free.
2. When things are broken either you leave as it is or take the damage and fix it - but it will never be the same again.
3. NEVER REGRET a thing, effort you have done to save what is there but has not - you did a great favor of yourself for that.
4. Losing is hard, it might take a few months up to a year or more to recover but do not let yourself down.
5. A one night/day of eventful situation could be a start of a happy ever after or a temporary happiness you will never forget.
6. Children ask a lot of Why's. 
In my two weeks of being with my nieces and nephew, one question will follow up a lot of why's. For us young adults, we could use that in every decision we make.
7. Always get in touch with your friends! You'd never know what a good surprise you and he/she will be in.
8. Keep a journal/diary. When you go back to the pages of dreams and lessons, you will see that you have achieved more and you are off to greater things.
9. In relationships, it takes a lot of figuring things, communication, and effort to grow. Everyday, every moment is growing up with your significant other. Learn from them every time. Tell them your dreams, what hurts you, say I love you in a random way that will cling to their ears, heart and soul.
10. Love yourself. Take a risk and adventure!
11. If there is no more things you can ask, just be always grateful to the one above. 

Thank you 2013. 
Welcome 2014 and Happy New Year!

Change

"Change is the only permanent thing in the world."

Sunrise. Sunset. Cornerstone. Skyscraper. Young. Old. Classic. Modern.
The earth evolves. Every 4 years a day is added on the calendar. South. North.
You. Me.

Yes! Albeit of the fact that some things may be repetitive, the sky does not always show the same orange-y and blue/purplish of twilight and dawn. A stone becomes a massive structure built for people's use. Our once smooth skin wrinkles. Melodious harmonies turned mixed arrangements. Heat increases and decreases. The four seasons. Our memory.

And a good memory, like the photo that captures a moment in time, becomes a good stronghold of the past. That our memory does not change a bit of what it has encapsulated of the wondrous and grief-stricken events in our life. It can bring us a good laugh and hurting tummy, or heartbreaking that it felt the outburst of emotions has begun all over again.

Then it subsides. How we have been fond of that memory becomes a treasure, sanctuary, your hidden  secret that no one will now. Every now and then, you visit that one moment and a few ones. Remembering how it affected you - your personality, decisions- your life.

You are now good as new again.
Change.
