I love those random memories
that makes me smile
no matter what’s going on
in my life right now…
What I feel at this very moment is so profound, I’m afraid I can’t find a word to express it. However, writing gets the better of me. I find it irresistible at times, truly there’s something that’s waiting to explode. Year 2016 is finally over. That fast! And here I am, left with so many thoughts and overwhelming feelings I could hardly catch my breath.
Anyhow, life never stops as long as we’re breathing, so might as well choose to live and be merry. This is in response to a blogging event hosted by a beautiful blogger, Basant She called, #mymonthlymemories. A wonderful way to take note of the things that you want to cherish and reminisce, right? I’ve been doing this for 12 months now and I am more than happy to have come this far. This last entry in 2016 would also serve as my Year-End Review for my blog.
This blog is actually five years old but I have not written article/s until January of this year. My very first entry is an assignment for Blogging 101, entitled, Me and Myself. That blogging event did more than teach me the basics of blogging but also served as a trigger to push through with fulfilling my long time dream to be a blogger. Something that brought me joy and happiness, something I would be proud of and cherish for the rest of my life.
A homebody and a nocturnal person that I am, I find peace and delight in writing articles and poetry ever since high school. I’ve kept those by myself and never grew tired of reading them over and over again like a litany whenever time permits. As I approached maturity, I realized, why not share it with others? It may entertain, inspire, and give hope in a way. I do agree that random acts of kindness, no matter how small can at least touch another soul and make someone feel cared for. That’s what we all want, right? Someone to make us feel we exist. Talking about existence, a big shout out to all 328 bloggers who followed my blog. I may not be able to write all your names but I want to express how grateful I am that you took interest. And to all those who stumbled upon my articles and poems, who spared a minute or two to read, like, and comment, I thank you all. You people add inspiration for me to keep on sharing a part of my soul. Furthermore, I cannot help but mention few bloggers who keeps up with my blog ever since I started writing and considered them not only avid followers but more as friends, I would be delighted if you’d take time to visit/check their blogs:

I’m almost done and I am more than satisfied and happy. December indeed is one of the busiest and yet fulfilling month last year. I am only able to write 6 articles, I failed to partake with blogging events that I usually join every week. But one thing I’ve learned, we can only do what we can so whenever opportunity knocks, I grab it and make the most of it.
Another year has come, another chance given by God Almighty to make our life worthwhile and use it to help others the best way we can and be happy no matter how tough our journeys might be. Once again, thank you all and God bless!
