Good Bye, 2013!

First blog for 2014! Yey! (Well, supposedly)

I'm so happy it's the new year. I can't wait to say goodbye to 2013. It wasn't the year for me and as I was sharing to Rye how 2013 was a bad year for me, he corrected me by saying that "2013 is not a bad year. It is a learning year."

And that is so true! (Thanks Rye for always putting me into right perspective.)

The start of 2013 was a real struggle for me. It opened with a lot of heart aches as I question sincerity and trust, but I also learned to let go and move on. Forgiveness does not depend on other parties actually saying sorry or even trying to clear up the issue but a choice that I have to make. Thanks to family and friends who encouraged and prayed, we were able to move forward.

And then came this drastic decision that I made for my career. It was a risk I had to take for my sanity's sake. But more than a risk, I believe it is a leap of faith for me. I learned how to practice "child-like faith" to the next level and more importantly, I learned that no one can come against me since I have God on my side. He is truly my greatest reward.

Now, I'm on another dip as 2013 drew to a close. I panicked and struggled but I believe all things will work together for good. I learned to hold on to the Truth --I am blessed and my life is under God's control.

2014 will be the year for the fulfillment of God's promises for me. Of this, I am very sure. I just have to be ready to receive the blessings. :)

Of course, 2013 wasn't all that bad. There are still lots of things to be thankful for.

I'm still able to do our travels and little get-aways :)

and lots lots more! I won't be able to finish this blog post if I list down everything good that happened last 2013.

And now I realized, there were still a lot more blessings that came for me last year than the trials that I faced through.

Count your blessings! :)
