Christmas 2010

December 24'10- Midnight

I don't know where to start and what to write, but my mind kept on saying come on It's been long since you've written your last post and since Christmas is almost over just a simple article to keep your blog alive. The end of the year was nearly coming and Christmas day was almost finished and to sum up all the things happened to me in the year 2010 some are bad, very bad, but there are still a lot of good things to consider that made my life quite memorable and exciting. I don't want to remember 2010 as the worst year of my life because of some inconsiderate and narrow-minded people and encounter unavoidable circumstances but rather most learning year for me. I've learned to love myself better, to love and appreciate more the people around me. That accuracy of information should be considered in judging other people's lives or rather don't judge so you will not be judged. That my happiness does not depend on somebody else's opinion. That past was passed and I have to live with the present and future as well (mamatay sa inggit ang nakaraan), and a lot of things to be thankful for. Thank you for we survive the 10 years and still counting, the 1 year outside of our comfort zone and we proved them wrong. Christmas was a really memorable day for me because I remember it was also Christmas when my husband and I first lived together. I know some condemn us then even not knowing the real story and the real reason behind because we didn't follow the regular norms of getting married and living together. But after 10 years I've learned to have peace with myself. Maybe by realizing a lot of things and learning that marriage it not about wedding bells and not just a mere piece of paper and the thought of wearing a grand fabulous dress just to please other people's imagination was all act of a narrow-minded person. That marriage is all about two people dreaming, loving and caring for each other, and committed to fulfilling their dream was one of the main goal to be considered to move on each day and live well. So now another year is coming and hopefully the realization of our dream is not far enough to fulfill with the guidance of the Lord. I hope I will live my life to the fullest without judging other people, without condemning them in the future. For he said ‘If anyone of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.’ Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, ‘Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?’ ‘No one, sir,’ she said. ‘Then neither do I condemn you,’ Jesus declared. ‘Go now and leave your life of sin.’" (John 8:3-11, emphasis mine).
