Last weekend, the family drove to Cavite for my uncle and cousin’s birthday. It was a great opportunity for me to unwind since the past week has been a topsy turvy one.
Spent the whole time reading and soul-searching. It was a relaxing trip indeed. Nothing to worry about someone whom you once love (It was an achievement to use the word “once” and finally, I can call him this letter… “x”), that girl and her abundant guts, reasons of him leaving, reasons of them doing whatever they are doing. All of those toxic wastes has been laid out of my body.
Also because of this trip, I realize a lot about me and my priorities. Sorted everything out and convinced myself to focus. Focus on how I will have flying colors when I graduate, focus on my remaining year in college, focus on finding a decent job and focus on making my family — especially my parents — happy and doing them all of the favors in this world as a payment for their hard work.
So now, I couldn’t care less of everything he might do or they might do. I already know what I should prioritize. Life is too beautiful to dwell on things and people who chose to be out of your life. I will just keep on trusting Him because He’s the only one whom I know will never ever leave me and I know He will shower me more with amazing people who’ll help me grow and will support me inspite of all my shortcomings.
Here’s to new beginnings and to the new me! :)
