Greetings on the Year of the Dragon

“New Year, Another journey and path to walk on ……”

In this article first and foremost, I would like to give thanks and greet all my relatives, cousins, and brother living and working abroad. To all my Blog followers, twitter friends and mates, Facebook groups (SimpleThoughts & Single Pilipina), batch mates, and friends in and out cyber world a bountiful and prosperous New Year to all of us.

In my previous articles in “My Points of View” and “My Memoirs”, I was overwhelmed about the outcome and comments of those viewers and readers who visited by blogs.

To all members of SimpleThoughts, a group I created, thank you for sharing “thoughts and quotes” for the day.

Thank you to all my friends and subscribers in my YouTube channel “Miechellejoy”. Luckily YouTube panelists didn’t block all my created videos (crazy & funny videos, lol!).

It is only a short period of time since I joined Twitter, YouTube, Blogging, and Single Pilipina, yet the camaraderie and sharing of ideas are more important to me. Though we didn’t meet formally in person, this medium serves as a channel for us to communicate.

Year 2011 calendar will soon be disposed and it will change to a new one. It is a year for every one who suffered failures, bitterness, heartaches and pains. Despite of those, we still manage to smile and stand up from our downfall.

Indeed, 2011 for me is not quite good. I am still thankful to the Lord because He guides me to the right path. I have my parents, brothers, trusted and close friends who are there to support me in my ups and downs.

There were circumstances that I was really upset and dejected. Still I never gave up. As this press time, I am still optimistic and waiting for the positive results of all my decisions and plans.

On the other hand, as I am refreshing the unforgettable moment in my life, it is really hard to forget. When someone made a scar and deeply wounded your whole being. I do believe the way to move forward is not going back which was already done in the past.

My only consolation to myself is I learned from my mistakes. People accept me for who and what I am right now. In spite of my impulsive decisions in life and stubbornness, God still remain by my side.

As my final statement, “Life is full of mystery and a roller-coaster in a rugged country road. It is full of excitement, suspense, actions, and romance. In this world we meet true and false people. They might influence us in good and bad terms. But still parents stick with us.”
Once again join me in celebrating and welcoming “2012 countdown”…..HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!!!!!!!!

Still a long journey


I am not done with my journey. As I keep my pace and continue searching for something, I still hold on God’s hands.

I traveled from Philippines and across the sea, yet I’m still exploring new world that my eyes can’t see.

I want to dream, believe and succeed someday. I am hoping for a positive results that all of my endeavors will go smoothly according to my plan. I know this is like aiming for a bull’s eye that needs concentration, practice and focus on the dartboard.

I was inspired with the lives of those exemplary known people who started from rugs-to-riches per se or from simple ABC’s turned to famous and prominent personalities.

I don’t know what and where will 2012 lead me through.. I just go with the current, but it doesn’t mean that I will let others decide for myself.

I will paddle my own canoe and direct it according to God’s decision. At this point of my life, still enjoying where I am right now. I envy my friends who build their own families and succeed in their careers. But, I don’t compete with them. Rather, compete with own self and be contented on what possible opportunities that come my way.

As 2011 closes its page, I am happy and grateful how far the distance I was able to reach…………………….. I will continue my own race until I gonna say it to myself  ‘THIS IS THE END of it’
