Farewell 2013: A year ender blog post.

A year of letting go

2013 is a year of acceptance and letting go…

I am saying the line above with a breath of sigh that finally I am happy to have my senses back…

The first five years was a roller coaster ride of keeping the special friendship surviving despite its many flaws, insecurities and emotional drama, which are mostly intrinsic by nature. The following two years is a squander of opportunity, mostly spent to bargaining and i-want-you-back syndrome which just made me more pathetic than become an emotionally seasoned one.

It has been a painful journey of hoping and waiting and even dreaming. I’m glad I’ve been through with this. With less ache and bitterness I am facing the next chapter with peace of mind…

Thanks to everyone who have been with me in this gay journey…

2014 will be a great year to “move on!” and be thankful for every blessing that comes.

The end of the Crossroads

The end of the Crossroads
"Atoms do not just make up the universe...
Crossroads do, too!"

With Living and Loving  as its first entry published on October 19, 2008 at i.ph, my Crossroads blog will now be finally off as i.ph shuts down its blogging services on May 21, 2012.

Before finally deciding to blog here in WordPress on January 2009, the Crossroads has nestled eleven (11) posts [mostly self-help and motivational articles I found very interesting from online sources], including an anthology of inspiring sms sent in by my friends [Now the Inbox arranged on June 06, 2010 here in The Chronicles…]

Precursors to Chronicles of the Unsaid are Crossroads and Sleeptalking (a Friendster’s blog, now completely shut down), which were all helpful in my blogging stint. Thanks to these free blogging services, I was able to find refreshing outlets for my tantrums.

Kailanman ay hindi ipinamana ang daigdig sa atin ng ating mga ninuno...
Ito'y hiram natin sa mga susunod na salin-lahi!

Another important blog powered by i.ph blogging services that I will be missing is the Huling Bantay (www.hulingbantay.i.ph). With a total of 26, 693 web visitors as of this posting time, the site which features environmental advocacy posts such as info on global warming published in Filipino and updates on Earth Hour have proved to be very beneficial to student researchers, receiving an overwhelming comments.

WHEN ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS TO HEAVE A SIGH…

The summer sun scorches. The wind that gusts on the rear of the car brings me no relief. The backlog on my table never dwindles. My head begins to explode…

 I know I must be home early to produce a hard copy of the reports I was hurrying to finish before another tasks begin to pile up. I want to remain sane and poised despite all these cramming. After all, had I not procrastinated, I should have been enjoying my limited summer vacation.

 My bowel has been festering me for three days now; making my day’s out-of-town business edgy as I constantly worry about messing up on my pants.  The possible stinks and the sight of swarming flies terrorize me most. I always dreamed of being the center of attention but never as an epicenter of abasement.

 I was meeting a former colleague from whom I shall be securing my payroll slip and it took me more than half-an-hour waiting by myself.  I almost frown yet remained tolerant… Thanks to my cellphone enrolled in my network provider’s unlimited SMS services offer – I was entertained.

 It was a quarter before midday when she and her friend arrived on wheels. I was hoping she would invite me even for an austere lunch at their place but she invited me instead to get a ride towards the waiting shed at the crossing which leads home.

 It was past twelve when I arrived at my second itinerary so I proceeded to a cafeteria first to have a refill. Everyone seems friendly except for a couple of servers who found my pronunciation of a soda brand ridiculous and another one who seemed to have a cold shoulder over my request. [The latter was mute, I found out]. I can’t give them a stern look. I’m too tired and hungry to be dreadful.  

 It was almost one o’ clock but I decided to drop by in an internet café after receiving a text that the staffs are just having their lunch too.  My forty minutes was spent deleting my e-mails and checking the comments on my blogs [but there was none at all].

 It was almost two o’ clock when my business was finally over. After a few minutes of filling up a little information on the 2316 form I tried to rush home.

 Unfortunately a jeepney has just passed by a few minutes after I disembarked from the tricycle. It meant more minutes of delay and a direct contact with the roasting sun. I was glad a cup of halo-halo was enough to cool me down.

 Indeed sometimes, my life’s journey offers unwanted diversions. Some of these were inevitable.  Others are needless detours. My choice to get through, to have my hasty U-turn or even to take the most unexpected alternative route depends on how I assess and cope with the situation.

 Not all that I want and expect to transpire occurs perfectly just as I wished them to be. Surprises – and trivial whatnots no matter how unpleasant they become are ingredients to a meaningful and happy living, I believe.

 When things went wrong, I should be forbearing.  When someone did me wrong, I must be forgiving… just as I should forgive myself for the flaws I made against others and into myself… After all, life is about enjoying every moment that unfold no matter how bleak they may seem.
