Today, I am Now 26!

The new day began and I am another year older. I was indeed in a daze as I have no idea how to celebrate or even how to do so. Maybe that is just the ironic part of getting a bit older.

Just like the past year, I felt that I will be celebrating my birthday today in a simple way I know. While I just asked mom to cook one request, I bought my own cake. But before that, I decided to do the ritual that has always been a must during birthdays in the family -- attending the Holy Mass. This year, I decided to go up to MMLDC and attend the Eucharistic celebration in the Residence Hall chapel as my big day fell on a First Friday.

All I know is that despite of a deteriorating eyesight, to wake up to a bright morning daily is already a blessing. Being able to do so is enough reason to celebrate.

My wishes remain to be that simple. More and more days of light, a blessed career and hopefully an opportunity to work at MMLDC -- for good.

Today, I woke up to a bunch of greetings from friends, colleagues and bosses. While I can't seem to come up with a way to celebrate, those were all enough to make my heart melt.

Just like last year, I'm still single. While I am planning to extend it a bit longer, I am not closing my doors to the possibility of letting "it" in and welcoming someone. Nowadays, I am starting to believe that pain really has a purpose. A relationship has to end because there's bound to be a better one that will come. Just like what someone said, ang tao, parang kaldero yan. Lahat sila ginawa ng may kasamang takip.

It's raining greetings and blessings. For that I am thankful.
