It had been almost a year since I last posted here, and A LOT has happened in my life. I never expected all of these but as they've said, no matter how you can't understand, things happen for a reason.
Before my birthday last January, I made one of the biggest decisions in my entire life. I gave up on one of the things I loved, one thing I've committed my whole heart to- I resigned as the remote producer for GMA News TV Quick Response Team. I cried for months before that, I didn't want to let go. It was the only job that I've wanted since I got in GMA, the people I am with every day became my family but I had to make a choice.
I would never forget the man who mentored me through all of those years, the person who showed me how to be passionate with my work, the man who showed me how to flap my wings. I must admit I still miss field work, I miss him and the whole team. I hope someday I'd still get the chance. I am just glad the team also keeps in touch with me.
I then gained a new family, people I'm friends with in and out of the newsroom- Subselfie. They're a group of intelligent, witty, crazy people, and a big part of my sanity despite my difficult work and personal problems. Eight people who mold me, hurt me, make my laugh and just help me grow; eight people who have become the rays of my sun.
Then, I met Kev. Now I'm speechless. Words are not enough to express how he turned my crazy quarter-life crisis phase upside down. He's the most beautiful surprise. He tore down the walls I've locked myself in, he pulled me out from my misery and taught me how to love again. It may be cliche but it's true. He's the reason why I am no longer afraid of the future. He's the love of my life and I'm thankful every day that God blessed me with such a loving person.
In life, we lose some, we win some. This year had been a really bumpy roller coaster ride but I believe all of these experiences only made me stronger. I may not be sure what would happen in the next days, month and years, but I have in faith in Him that things will get even better.
