Forgive my extended tardiness but I would like to greet you guys from the bottom of my soul… have a terrific and productive New Year! And may you find some happiness to come.

My 2012 was quite a year. I made a lot of misses but certainly there were some big hits. A year filled with mistakes, but hey, I’ve learned (I think). It’s also a year of disappointments but it’s also a period of milestones. I guess in a year no matter how much you try or hide away from the situations there are always gains and loses out of it; of pain and pleasure, of sacrifices and blessings. And maybe perhaps there’s always a time to get lost  and a time to get back, of finding your self.

But the biggest part of the year are time you spent with people, of connecting  and sharing a piece of your heart, and even your soul to them.

The hard part is losing them, but the painful part is leaving them. People come along. And leave. That is life.  That’s exactly what I did when I left The Island, a beautiful place I’ve written about in a chronicle in case I will no longer be around to tell my experiences out there to my descendants. Thanks God, I have no regrets.

Because along the way, as I discovered a new path, comes new faces, new inspirations, new friends and new experiences. And after a long series of unfortunates experiences and hazardous detours, nothing beats the moment where you truly discover you true self. I got lucky. Or perhaps truly blessed knowing of the even greater things to come. Things that are beautiful, heartfelt, thoughtful and, if luck strikes, things that can inspire others to create positive things.

2012, what a year it has been. It’s a good year, but not a great year I expected it to be. But I’ll take the bruises, capitalize on my mistakes, earn the lessons and never forget on the many many good things that happened that Year of the Dragon. Celebrating the New Year isn’t just about looking back at what went wrong and counting busted resolutions but rather about looking ahead and promising to make life better one day at a time.

I can never thank everyone enough but, wtf, daghang salamat ug  Happy New Year!
