Begin Again

One of the best things we can do in our lives is this:

Begin to see yourself as you were...
When you were the happiest and strongest you've ever been.

Begin to remember what worked for you
(and what worked against you)
And try to capture the magic again.

Begin to remember how natural it was when you were a child --
To live a lifetime each day.

Begin to forget the baggage you have carried with you
For years:
The problems that don't matter anymore,
The tears that cried themselves away,
And the worries that are going to wash away
On the shore of tomorrow's new beginnings.

Tomorrow tells us it will be here every new day of our lives;
And if we will be wise,
We will turn away from the problems of the past
And give the future  -- and ourselves -- a chance
To become the best of friends.

Sometimes all it takes is a wish in the heart to let yourself...
Begin again.

Gucci love.

For the longest time I have given up on owning another Gucci bag. And then...

My pretty cousin Carol surprised me with this
I love it!
What makes it even more special is that it was totally unexpected.

Happy Year of the Ox, everyone!!!

Out with the old, In with the new!

It's 2009 now and I'm still not over 2008... The past year has been a good year for me.  There are so many people I owe a lot to and I extend my sincerest THANKS to everyone who has been a part of my 2008.  You know who you are.  I may have hurt or angered you or caused you feelings of repulsion towards me, I am sorry... (I tell ya, it's the hormones!) :D

It's time for a new list of goals.  For 2009, I have a short one.

1.  2008 has been all about me.  This year, I will try my best to be more selfless.
2.  Give my parents two of their most anticipated gifts.  One is in the works, the other one will have to wait 'til next year? =)
3.  Start fixing my new place and hopefully transfer within the year.
4.  Save up for a vacation abroad with my mom.
5.  I wasn't able to accomplish a goal last year to visit an institution for the aged.  I pledge to carry out this task soon.
6.  Enroll in a boxing class.  I just inquired at Elorde Boxing Gym and I really really want to start soon!  I have to keep fit and feel good about myself so I could bring positive vibes around me.  
7.  Live and let live!
