I’ve come a long way since those very first days of the 2013 new year. Although my intentions for starting this blog stays the same, my experiences that I dreamed of doing went beyond my expectations. Looking back, I’ve grown emotionally, mentally, and physically. I’m very proud of what I’ve accomplished. I kept true to my F.F.A.B life and produced a better, happier, whole ME. I’ve expanded my network and made F.riendships that will last a lifetime. And as I planned, I’ve rekindled many of my friendships that needed mending and maintaining. My F.aith in God has grown stronger than ever- unexplained in words, but felt deep in the heart. Truly God has blessed me in so many ways although I am less than perfect. I let go of all my worries this year, and had him lead my life. He’s blessed me with caring friends and supportive family members. During my travels, I didn’t have anything to fear or be lonely, because I knew he was always there by my side. And along my path of creating this F.F.A.B.ulous life, God led me to find true LOVE. Finding love was a bonus for me this year. I never expected it nor asked for it- just that if God gave me someone to be with for the rest of my life, I’ll gladly accept it as a gift. During this year, I’ve gone through so much A.dventures. Never in a million years did I think I’d go back and forth to Texas. But in honesty, never say never! Texas is where I rekindled my friendships with my long lost friends. It is where I enjoyed my most F.F.A.Bulous single days. It was also where I fell in love. I finally had the chance to visit my family in Hawaii, hike up mountains, overcome my fear of heights while doing so, and experience a waterfall which all were on my bucketlist. I finally had the courage to travel out of the country on my own- visiting Switzerland, France, Austria, and Luxembourg with my cousins as my tour guides. Europe was an amazing trip. It’s ironic how I’ll be moving there in a couple of months to be with my husband =) It’s funny to look back at all the little things that happened to me to get to the bigger picture of what God’s plan was for me all along.
I can say that this is by far my most memorable year of my life. I’ve accomplished a lot. I’ve taken care of my whole being and topped it off with the love of my life finding me. A good friend once told me, “Work on being the best person you can be, and the right guy will find you. Because, to find the right guy, you need to be the right girl.”
Here’s to a wonderful, memorable, F.F.A.B.ulous 2013. I will cherish it forever. May this new year continue to bring HOPE, PROSPERITY, MOTIVATION, and DEDICATION.
