When I looked back at my year, all I could do is sigh heavily in exhaustion. So much has happened– good, bad, crazy– that when I thought about it, was the most that had ever happened my entire life. There were fair shares of ups and downs, highs and lows, comes and goes. It was absolutely, completely tiring. My life literally became something out of a Nicholas Sparks novel and Filipino teleseryes rolled into one. And I may have handled it more gracefully, but I wouldn’t change anything. This was how I wanted it to be, and if it meant losing certain people and certain parts of myself, then so be it.
We are all lessons in the end, and when it is learned, we must move forward to the next chapter.
