I’m really sorry for not updating my blog. I got too busy. I got caught up with so many things, stuck in a quandary, and occupied with motherly and fatherly duties. Siguro naman, nagkaintindihan na tayo at pinatawad niyo na ako sa late entry na ito.
I am truly touched by a lot of tweets reminding me to update my blog entry here. Kaya, heto na po. Happy New Year! Happy na, New Year pa!
I had experienced a roller-coaster ride of emotions last year. I still consider it a good year despite the pits and falls. I had made new friends. I got to know who my real friends are. I learned more about myself.
There are some things I thought I already knew, but surprisingly, hindi pa pala. I thought I already knew what and how to handle certain situations and yet, I was put in a tight corner leaving me compeletely baffled. People, situations, and adversaries camouflage themselves and come to us when we least expect it. In my case, nagulat na lang ako, heto na naman…Hahahaha!
2010 is a year that I will never forget.
I will never forget the lessons I learned. I will leave behind the pain and the hurt. I will carry on the beautiful memories and aspirations to 2011.
I will never regret the decisions I made, though some made my heart cry. I will never regret them because my choices came with the purest intentions. I admit that I am stubborn, but I am not hard-hearted. I am a hopeless romantic. Ay, hindi…I am simply romantic. Ayoko namang isipin na I am simply hopeless.
Let me borrow a few lines from the Broadway song “There’s a Fine Line” from the musical Avenue Q.
“There’s a fine, fine line between a lover and a friend./ There’s a fine, fine line between reality and pretend./
And you never know till you reach the top, if it was worth the uphill climb/ There’s a fine, fine line between love and a waste of time./
There’s a fine, fine line between a fairy tale and a lie./ There’s a fine, fine line between your wonderful and goodbye/
I guess if someone doesn’t love you back, it isn’t such a crime./ There’s a fine, fine line between love and a waste of your time.”
There were a lot of things I wasn’t able to do last 2010. Again, I have no one to blame but myself because I allowed myself to be bogged down. The rocks of life can either block us, or we can use them as stepping stones to the paqth leading to greatness. Decide! Choose! I choose to be happy. Life goes on…
I’m currently doing a movie for Viva, under the direction of award-winning director, Wenn V. Deramas. Who’s that Girl? ang title and it’s topbilled by Anne “sana kamukha ko” Curtis and Luis Manzano.
I am blessed to be closely working with Ms. Lorna Tolentino for her new soap opera in ABS-CBN, the Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin. I am privileged to do the momentous and historical grand celebration of UST’s Quadricentennial celebration on the 27th of January. I’m also organizing the UST’s Quadricentennial Film Festival awards night on the 25th.
At the same time, I am a mother to Quentin, who has been helping me see the beauty of life.
So, life goes on. I am not perfect but I can surely be better. Sabi ko nga: This year, ako ay magpapapayat, magpapaganda, at magpapayaman.
To all that I have unintentionally hurt last year, I am truly sorry. To all that have hurt me intentionally or unintentionally last year, thank you because you all make me want to live a good life. The greatest revenge is to live a good life.
2011 is my year and I claim it!
