At 24

24. Oh My God. I am losing my years of youth already. LOL.

In the midst of my busy day – (You know while typing this, I am thinking about my Statements of Account to process, IPCR, JAQ, Social Media Accomplishment Report to be recorded at Google Sheet and other requirements with deadlines) – it feels like I wanna go home here in my blog, not to pour things out but to go back in place, at least. The previous months have become a tough ride. My job was not just a job but became an instrument to mold me in different shape. I was not good at this. Adjusting with different working style, seeing a hustling environment, busy people, pressure, crisis – everything has become normal and I realize it is suffocating when suddenly you take a pause. It is like a sudden break that instead of giving you rest, it stresses you even more. That is a life now, at 24, and I am on the process of getting myself flow with it.

At 24, I can say I went through a lot already. So much has happened in so many years and I am surely happy of what it made me and what has become of me. Sure, there are a lot of struggles – in fact, millions of it, there are several losses – where I gained my lessons, tons of pain – which made me stronger, outcomes of my decisions – which I have to accept and a lot more. I have no questions on the kind of world and life I am living right now but rather absorbing the reality and living through it all.

In my 24th year, I have a lot to be thankful for. As for me, I am living a life normal for a person in his mid-twenties and I am all fine. I am no longer that girl who cries over spilled juice and minor wounds I got from playing karang-karang, but a woman who overcame it all.

For a loving family, supportive friends, career, PIA, this blog and you – readers, to my organizations that made me responsibly exercise my humane responsibilities, to CDO Bloggers, and most of all, to the Flock that made this faith in Him stronger through being of service, I am so much grateful. I am thankful that despite all the struggles, I can still say I am perfectly blessed and highly favored.

Thank you for all the overwhelming greetings and messages. Thank you for the love.

This is 24 now. This is life now. Yes, this is.
