My thoughts about 2013
In a blink of an eye, 2013 is coming to an end...
It's been yet another eventful year for me. I started a new phase of life: Back in School after taking a gap year, joined the Gushcloud family as soon as 'Click' (my very first acting gig) was launched, got into a relationship that made it even clearer for me to know what I want and also, what I do not want in life, hitting the big 21 and entered the start of adulthood, and finally overcame my stage fright and conquered the stage when I joined my school's pageant.
Through the ups and downs that made me who I am today, I thought it will be nice to share some important lessons about life which I've learnt over the past 365 days on this space:
1. Knowing when to let go.
Sometimes, love alone just isn't enough to make a relationship work.
It takes two hands to clap with a whole lot of trust, hope & also, that leap of faith. It's really true that everything happens for a reason and people are there in your life, be it for a long while or a short while, for some very valid reasons too.
I always like to think that some people are just like your guardian angels, it doesn't matter if you talk to them on a daily basis, they will always be there to guide you and give you the best piece of advice whenever you're down. And there also some people who comes and go very quickly in your life, they could be passerbys in your life but these people are the ones who could possibly give you the most valuable lessons in life, they make you realize how strong you really are and they allow you to know so much more about yourself that you never knew.
I've never mentioned about this but it's been 3 months since I broke up with W.
We broke up 5 days after my 21st birthday which no one saw it coming except the both of us. I believe we have both given our best in the relationship but our 'best' just wasn't good enough for each other. I guess it's because our lifestyles and our perspectives in life are just too different? Not too sure...
Some of my friends asked if I regretted dating him and my reply will always be a "no". In a way or another, he kinda made me realize how much I really enjoy being independent and that I'm so much more down-to-earth than I've always imagined myself to be. No doubt that it was a difficult decision to make but I guess, it's a better choice for us both and I'm really glad that we're both happier this way right now.
2. Stay humble and independent.
I started blogging when I was 14 purely because it was fun to update a space which you can talk to about your day in school, your friends, your crush (even leaving tiny italicized message about them) and little incidents that will make you reflect on yourself which serve as a constant reminder to count your blessings and to become a better person.
I was really excited when I heard that Gushcloud wanted to sign exclusively with me earlier this year. I know I'm such a lucky girl and I've been feeling thankful for all the opportunities they have given me such as attending my first musical at MBS, my first fashion show (Fide Fashion Week), getting sponsored for both my hair and facial, etc. and most of all, I'm truly thankful for all the amazing people (especially some really humble and inspiring bloggers) I've met along the way through these little opportunities.
Having that said, I don't blog for a living. It's just a hobby of mine.
I am happy to be earning most of my extra allowance through events jobs so that I can save up enough to do what I love - Travel. People always ask me: "You very in need of money meh? Why are you always working?" I come from an above-average family but wells, my parents are very, very protective of me because I'm the youngest and their only daughter. I thought the only way to prove to them that I'm independent enough is to work for my travel expenditure so I don't even have to ask for a single cent from them before booking a plane ticket. And I'm so glad that this plan has been working so far! ;)
3. Grab any opportunities that comes along your way.
Don't be shy. Really. That's the worst reason, ever.
Always remind yourself:
"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did."
I guess that's nuff said. (:
That pretty much sums up what I've learnt in 2013....
And of course, I've learnt so much more than just this but nah, I shall not bore you with a post that seems never ending.
On a side note, I'm sorry that I haven't been a good and hardworking blogger.
I still really enjoy blogging even though I don't update very frequently. I like taking loads of pictures and enjoy smiling to myself while editing the photos and sharing about all the fun times I had. -- Only when I have loads of time and I feel like it though. Simply because I believe it's more important to have quality time with your loved ones and nothing beats real interaction with people.
A big thank if you've been following this humble space of mine! <3
Definitely looking forward to a blessed 2014 ahead!
Till then, xx!
I'm no angel, I'm just me
But I will love you endlessly.
