2013 went by so fast, it's hard to believe that it's about to end. A lot of good things happened to me this year and as much as I would want to hold on to 2013 a bit longer, I have to face the new year hoping that it'll be as awesome or even better than this year. I have so many things to be grateful of; countless of blessings showered upon me, overflowing me with happiness despite some difficulties I had to face. Everything was unexpected, but I know it was planned already by God.
Perhaps, to some people, 2013 is one of the worst years they've had especially since Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda engraved sadness to Philippines. We actually have the option to mourn for days and blame leaders for not having direct response to the situation, but we could always think positively. Through typhoon yolanda, we now know how to appreciate little things, we saw how people from in and outside the country value each other by giving donations or doing campaigns to raise funds for yolanda victims, etc. If Yolanda didn't bother you as much as the victims, maybe personal problems gave you a hard time to appreciate this year; instead of forming friendships somehow it turned out the other way, maybe all the things you've expected never happened, your bucketlist for 2013 is left unchecked, or for any reason it might be, cheer up! Maybe everything is designed to happen on 2014.
Few hours from now, 2013 will be leaving to make way for 2014. Let's rock this new year! Do not let disappointments from the latter year drag you down. It's the perfect time to make a fresh start!
