2008: the year that was

i look back at 2008 with quite a lot of regret: i’ve had so many wasted chances that i could never have again. in 2008, i had dreamed up a lot of things that i have not achieved, mainly because of my own lack of determination and comfort with mediocrity.

it was so different 10 years ago, way back in 1998. then, i was a kick-ass go-getter. then, it didn’t matter if what i wanted seemed out of this world. no matter what, i worked hard for it and got it. now that i’m older, it seems as if i’ve lost my love to win and excel and get what i want. it’s too early to get tired of life and to get tired of fighting for things i want to happen with me.

through the years, i think i have lost my zest for living. i feel like an “old” young woman…happy with the way things are when they could be other ways…happy in my little nook, in my little shell.

but i realize that this year i’ve learned the meaning of acceptance to fault. this is how things are; deal with it and get on with your life.

2009: i want to rev things up for me, go to places i wanna go, be someone i wanna be. time to get out of my comfort zone. i’m getting older, and it’s gonna be now or never.


one thing off my wishlist

i got myself a laptop!


now, i’ve got nine things left to fulfill for my 2009 wishlist. 🙂


please, please help me find what i lost…and please keep me from losing anything else…

Prayer for Lost Objects
Saint Anthony, when you prayed your stolen book of prayers was given back to you.
Pray now for all of us who have lost things precious and dear.
Pray for all who have lost faith, hope or the friendship of God.
Pray for us who have lost friends or relatives by death.
Pray for all who have lost peace of mind or spirit.
Pray that we may be given new hope, new faith, new love.
Pray that lost things, needful and helpful to us, may be returned to our keeping.
Or, if we must continue in our loss, pray that we may be given Christ’s comfort and peace. Amen.
