1. Surprise, I resigned from my job!
We can never be fully prepared of what lies ahead. Life is going to surprise us in so many ways. Like how it surprised me this year when I have finally decided to... leave. I have submitted my 30-days notice of resignation and my last day of work is January 26. Alas, after almost 7 years, my heart is already at peace with leaving the job that I held dear.
I also added...
2. I decided to move back home.
3. I got the best home-based job.
4. Married for 6 years and a mom for 5 years
I never thought I could be the "marrying type" so I'm just happy someone actually wanted to marry me even when I can barely cook rice and noodles properly. *Cries, huhu.
So whatever I do right now, I do them happily because I have a husband who allows me to do them without guilt tripping or whatever. What I wrote last year about being married still holds true until now. Here's another excerpt.
But anyhow, I'm so lucky enough to have a husband who allows me to celebrate my individuality and never complains about my wanderlust. Happy that even though we disagree on soooo many things, I never felt that I needed his or anyone's validations because I think and feel that he trusts me enough. Annoyed that most of the time he thinks I think I'm always right (okay, I do, I think I'm most of the time right but you'll thank me later). Hecckkk
And a mom for 5 years. Every single year, I feel like I'm reborn. Until now, I probably still suck at mothering but when I look at how Reiko has grown through the years, I think I'm not that bad after all.
5. Backpacking in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand!
6. A great year for blogging

I'm also beyond thrilled that I had the opportunity to become one of the leads of Cebu Blogging Community and High Intensity Bloggers. I really didn't know at first what I could offer that would make a difference but I realized that by simply being there and doing my best to be involved is already a milestone.
7. Winning blogging awards
Of course, I can't take all the credit because the true winners are my readers and people who continue to inspire and motivate me to blog more.
Bonus! I turned 28 a few days ago, and celebrated it secretly, lol! Grateful for the years I have grown, made mistakes, and learned. Cheers! ;)
This has been a long post so thank you very much to you and cheers to more adventures in the coming year!
