The Story

“All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of who I am
And how I got to where I am…

Reading New Year posts never fail to both amaze and disappoint me.

I feel so jealous that some people were able to accomplish so much at such a little amount of time, and yet here I am, feeling as if nothing has changed and everything is going against my way.

But there are times when I just feel
elated because there are moments when a single day, a single minute, a single hour stretched like a forever’s worth of happiness and satisfaction.

And just like that I feel nothing but thankful.

Thankful to Him for the blessings I’ve received for yet another 365 days of my existence.

Thankful for my superiors for giving me a stable job. One that allows me to manage my own finances. That despite the seemingly meager amount, it nevertheless gave me enough to afford me trips to Gucci and Louis Vuitton and end up carrying some.

For my patients for allowing me to learn a whole lot of things. I may not have given them my undivided care but in my heart I knew that it is my best they have received.

For my co-staff for being my mentors and friends.

For my family for continuously bringing out the best in me. For sticking with me through thick and thin, I will be eternally grateful.

For “J,” for believing in me and loving me and ta
king good care of me. We might not have been “there” and the road is still long and winding, but I’m thankful because we have taken the first step together and I’m praying that you’ll be holding my hand as we journey through life together.

And for you for inspiring me to write. A passion I nurture for quite a long time. For this blog that served as a forge where I can share my emotions, never will I quit you, that’s for sure.

With all these blessings and wonderful people surrounding my life, tell me why should I feel ungrateful for?

…Oh but these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to share them to
It’s true, I was made for you.

Oh yeah, and it’s true that I was made for you.”
