Of moving on and Of starting over again

Let me start my first post with a warm smile, a deep satisfied breath and a pat on my back. Finally! I did it. I’m writing again and I will have more time to do so…this time around. New place to explore, new things to be excited about and I just signed up for WP. I will be more in touch of my cluttered thoughts.

The last few months have been such a challenge. And I NEVER turn my back on challenges, UNLESS it’s time to let go and KEEP MOVING FORWARD. It’s always been my motto in life. No matter how tough life gets I pause a moment and say “I can do this. I just have to keep moving forward.” I always like to believe that I am an OPTIMISTIC person.

So here I am now, moving on…

I can’t do it without my “life supports”, namely:

  1. My 3-year old daughter,Mikheila

  2. My ever-Palangga, Ashleigh

  3. My strength and courage, my Mama Jane

    Mama Jane, she always give me good advice other that those times that I  was stubborn

  4. My ever-supportive lover (insert kilig’d smile) and partner-in-crime, Noel

    Noel, my partner, is very supportive even when he doesn't like my decisions

With these four important people in my life behind my back and pulling me back up, I can do anything and I can be who I want to be. This time I am pursuing something I’ve put a hold for some time now-writing. I don’t write to impress, to be known for being an intellectual. Writing has always been a great part of me growing up. It’s like therapy for me. Way back elementary days, I kept these little Nick Carter and Britney Spears booklets where I kept my journal. Being an introvert, it had helped me through elementary, high school and college and especially during those pubescent years.

A part of the moving on process is the moving out and the moving in …to this quite small studio-apartment in Imus.

June 25th, Thursday – another turning point in our lives. We decided to move back to Manila from my home, Cebu. Our small family of three is whole again.

Now, I know I made the right decision and that is to fulfil my role, full-on, as a stay-home Mom to my wonderful 3-year old daughter, Mikheila.

I just made my first step.
