2017 Open Letter to Self

There had been a lot of things that happened to me in the past that keeps on haunting me until now; things I did  that I never been proud of, revenge and hatred to people who had hurt me or did terrible things to me, wasted almost my whole life blaming people of what I have become.  I am such a stubborn person that I kept on making the same mistakes over and over when I should’ve learned from it and move on. I have been a prisoner of my past that nothing had happened in my life; dreams that I never got to fulfil. I never got contented with everything that has happening to me.

Each year, I would tell myself to start forgetting the pain, hatred that I felt in the past, to stop wasting my life and start living in the present. Saying and never meant to do it or not being able to really forgive and forget will make you go back to the darkness, to the past that will forever haunt me. Even so, I still want to be optimistic that eventually, I can escape it and start a new life.

Now, that 2017 had started I am now ready to close the old chapters of my life and prepare to start a new on with the lessons I’ve learned from the past without the ever getting stuck in the past again. I know I will never be able to get back the time I wasted and/or change my past (I would be really thankful if I could though.) Even though I admit that I have a lot of things in me that I am not proud of. Also, time is of the essence since I am not young and never getting any younger; there are a lot of catching up to do with myself.This is who I am now, this is what I have become. I must embrace and love myself as who I am because no one will ever give you an unconditional love than that of myself. Change for the better and be the person who I want to be.  In 2017, I will be turning 35 I hope that I would still be able to fulfill even just a part of my dreams; to have a family of my own, to be successful in my life, travel around the world. I am hoping that it is not too late.

I know what I am saying in this post is really confusing and nonsense to a lot of people; most especially those who doesn’t know me or know the things I’ve been through but I did not do this to gain anything or to explain and please others. I am done doing that for a long time. This is just a simple message to myself as a way of bidding farewell to 2016 and welcoming 2017 positively.

Life is too short to get imprisoned in the past. Let it go and free myself; I am human, I am entitled to do crazy things that can be embarrassing or can also be something I can be proud of.

I may not be able to rewrite the chapters of my past but 2017 had just started and the pages are still blank I am thankful that I was given this opportunity to start writing a whole new story, new direction of my life. There will be bumps and trials but its all part of life so long as I get to learn and escape from the situations. To positive changes, to fresh start; I welcome 2017 with optimism.

 

Happy New Year to all! Cheers!

Out of the Blue

I thought I was able to move on from my ex, I realized that I still love him and wants him back when he started reaching out to me again. I assumed he also felt the same that he realized he loves me because of the sweet messages he kept on sending but I was wrong. Just like before he simply wants to play with my feelings. He’s selfish, arrogant and mean but even if he loves to see me in pain I still love him.

I did crazy things over the past few months hoping he would come back to me or even realized I am the woman for him but that didn’t work. He still owes me money that when I asked him to pay so I could start a new life he doesn’t want to pay. Why did I even fall in love with someone who doesn’t know how to appreciate the good things I’ve done for him or simply just reciprocate the love that I am giving him. I never ask for any material things from him all I asked was for his attention and love was that too much? I know that whenever I get hurt I nagged too much and I am seriously doing something about it but even so do I deserved to be treated like trash and played with?

Right now, all I want is to totally forget him everything about him including the feelings I have for him. I want to start a new life without the pain, suffering and trauma I experienced from him. How I wish this works like magic. One swoosh and everything disappears.

Try and Try

It had been over a week since the start of the bed weather here due to the typhoons and I am totally loving it! Yes, I am being selfish but don’t get me wrong; if you’re living in a tropical country where the weather can get really scorching hot you would know what I mean.

Anyways, after much struggle to get my baking skills working (if I have any). Never knew baking could be this hard, Martha Stewart make it look like it’s the easiest thing to do or learn in this world. Finally, I was able to produce something presentable and edible baked goody. Yes, after too much effort exerted and almost ready to admit defeat, I was finally been able to do it. Okay, I exaggerated it a little. But it is true I was about to give up hope and admit that baking will never be for me. Presenting, my first ever masterpiece…. Carrot Cupcake…

It is true that you would never know what you’re capable of if you give up early. There are simply things that you won’t be able to get easily. If you give up with just a couple of tries then you haven’t exerted enough effort to know if you really can make it. I would practice some more for I know there are a lot of things I need to improve on. But for now, let me savor this moment of victory… ^_^

 

Much Love,

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

OMG! I really can’t believe that only nine days to go til Christmas. Christmas is my favorite season of all. Are you done with your Christmas shopping?

I may sound like a child, but Christmas for me is magical. It always cheer me up for no particular reason. I may not have a great year but as soon as Christmas season comes it just brightens up my mood.

Looking forward to be cooking for my family for this special occassion. What’s your favorite season?

Much love,

Baking

Lately, I have been trying to learn how to bake from cookies to cupcakes, etc. But so far baking doesn’t seem to like me at all. I started with cupcakes but it turns out to be a bit on the “crunchy’ side that you can almost mistake it to be a cookie. Well, don’t get me wrong I love cookies but then I am making cupcake, right? So, I decided to try and bake cookies instead, who know I might get lucky, right? I was wrong it turned out to be soft almost like a bread! I really don’t know what I have been doing wrong. I mean, I have been following the instructions on the recipe but then why is it not turning out well?

Aside from the fact that I love eating, I am also planning on opening a small cupcake shop that is the reason why I am trying hard to learn to bake. But I won’t give up ( I think…); I would give myself lots of chances before finally say “I quit” on baking. I just hope I would be able to bake even just cookies but if not and baking is really not for me then it is fine; most important part is that at least I did try and did my best to learn. ^___^

Til next time!
