The year 2014 has been a phenomenal year for me, and tomorrow, January 1, 2015, will be the mark of my blog's 2nd year anniversary. It's amazing how that 2 years changed my life in many ways, 2 years ago no one was interested in following me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, LookBook, and my other social media platforms. But in a snap of two years, I don't even know how my life became so interesting, 30,000 people subscribed to my platforms collectively and in that snap, I gained readers that I can interact with 24/7. Maybe it was because I did take some risks and take a shot of everything I haven't tried before.
On the other side, 2014 might have sucked a little bit but I made it through successfully with perseverance and help from my friends, family and specially, my readers. A few people, through the power of anonymity, sent me messages through emails and tumblr, some good, some are not. I can't blame them because I share so much of my life in the internet publicly, but before I put something out there, I prepare myself moments before I share it because at the end of the day, I still care about the things people say about me.
2014 has been a year of goodbyes and new hellos, The two hardest thing to say for me, are to say "hello" for the first time and say "goodbye" for the last time. I graduated from high school and sent my goodbyes to my highschool friends even though it will not be the last. I entered college and gave hellos to new friends that I will be sharing my 4 years with. I gave my last goodbye to our family dog who died last November 1st, and said hello to our new puppy last November 28th.
You know how people wants to have a perfect 2015? I don't want to have a perfect 2015 because we are not living in the world of Teletubbies where everything is peaceful (as far as I can remember), I still want to have a little bit of bull craps in my year because it make things full of thrill and that thrill makes my life full of excitement and challenges to make me a better and skillful person. Things will start to look up and if they don't, we all know that the determination of our fate lays on our own acts, just shake things up and do what you have to do to make things look up in year 2015. We tend to underestimate our capabilities, just go out there, there's always a first time for everything, find yourself but always remember that things don't happen overnight. Give yourself time, in fact there will be another 365 days in 2015, a little bit more effort and faith. Do Better, Be Better. 365 new days, 365 new chances.
