2009 .... what a year it was!

2009 started out pretty badly for me ... I had to deal with a psycho ex who was out to bleed me out emotionally, psychologically, and financially. He and his family harassed my family and even went as far as throwing a stone at our house. Yes, it was that bad.

Then another sad thing happened ... a tragedy we thought of at that time. We were being asked to move out of the house we were renting because the owner needed it all of a sudden. Just when we were starting to do well with our little store, we had to start all over again.

We thought this was a tragedy but it was actually a blessing in disguise. We were finally away from my ex who used to live right across the street from us. We were finally free from their hateful stares and curses.

From that point on, there were a lot of good things that have happened. There were still some down moments and crazy moments that made me want to curse at the world but overall, it was a year full of bonding moments with family, friends, and my love.

I am still not where I want to be but I am slowly getting there. I am becoming a better person and I am able to pinpoint my flaws and come up with action plans to make an improvement.

2009 was a turbulent year for me. I hope that 2010 will be more peaceful.

last hurrah for 2009

This was yesterday and today ... last outing and date for the year ... it was fun. =p Goodbye 2009! Hello 2010! Happy New Year everyone!

realization and the light bulb moment

A few days ago, I learned that my ex was now living in a province with another woman. Yep. He was able to dupe another one. I feel bad for the woman because I know first hand how horrible the ex can be but aside from that, I realized that I have really moved on. I didn't even feel a surge of hatred for him anymore. True, I still would be pretty happy if he dropped dead all of a sudden because then I wouldn't have to process legalities and stuff but its not on my wish list anymore. What I really wish is that he would just stay out of my life and out of B's life for good. Like he doesn't exist ... at all.

And then the light bulb moment came ... I realized that 2009 was not the good year that I wanted it to be simply because I was still harboring negative thougths ... I was still resentful and bitter until about the latter part of the year. With this ... I know now what I must do to get the year that I want and all the positive vibes.

With 2009, I will leave all ill feelings I have for the ex and his family and any negative wishes that I have in mind. I leave him and his family to the fates and karma. I am now truly free from him and I feel happy. After almost 5 years, I have finally shed off any trace of him.

I am free. I choose to be.

fun times with friends

with Vida and Arnold at Manila Peninsula Hotel
with Jacqueline
with Neil

I hanged out with some old friends (meaning, we've been friends for over 10 years) and it felt good. I missed them. I missed being with them and simply being me again. It felt good to be with people who accept me for what I am, bad stuff and all. I miss being me, plain old silly me.
