day 952 – milestone at milestones

image

celebrating my parents big coral milestone at milestones. it wasn’t my optimal restaurant choice to say the least but had to settle because i wasn’t able to make reservations for my top pick. the food was alright, but the kitchen was super slow and the service was likewise. i was starving at every course of this dinner which didn’t make me a happy camper. happy anniversary to the most amazing parents i could ever wish for. the two of them combined their powers to support me in every possible way

resolution series: [seven] family

image

you don’t choose your family, you are born with it. never underestimate the power of family, it’s the most important thing in the world you don’t want to live without. it is what makes a house a home, filled with warmth, laughter and unconditional love. my family is the best people i know because they have been the biggest supporter for me through the years. my family is my strength and my weakness. they raised up me to the person i am today, they picked me up when i need it most, they paved the path that i traveled on, they let me stand on their shoulders when the fight gets tough and i would use all my power to defend them whenever possible. through the decades, we have spent time together on important dates and celebrated each of our birthdays and holidays as a family. life got a lot busier once i entered adulthood and took on a lot more challenges. i know they fully understand and support that i want to live my life with tons of commitments, sometimes sacrificing the amount of time spent with them. rest assured that my priorities haven’t changed; i will do what i can to make time for these special people, and have no doubts that whatever time we spend together is quality time. i grew up with these awesome people and i want to grow old together to be there for them when they need me most

starting a new series called resolution series inspired by an article based on 30 new year resolutions people in their 20’s should make or consider making to develop and prepare for the road ahead. the second decade of our lives is when we discover the most about ourselves as a human being, and learn to pave the road for what is to come in the future. this is the perfect opportunity to explore, experiment and experience all our options in shaping ourselves and becoming the person we want to be. there will be difficult times when it seems like there is insurmountable obstacles and challenges that lie between the start to finish line, but just know that it will be worth it in the end. i live by, and am always reminded, that when there is no pain, there is no gain. i hate thinking of the regrets in the past so here i am trying to take my life by the horn and live life to its fullest without regrets. i cherish all those that have entered my life and made a positive impact in all ways possible and i hope i have impacted other’s lives likewise. without your support, patience and guidance through all the ups and downs, i would not have the strength and motivation to continually make improvements. you listened to me when i vented, you lifted me when i fell, you held me together when i cried and ultimately showed me the meaning to true love and friendship. i am grateful for who i have become but i am not satisfied with where i am at. it’s never too late to make resolutions and changes towards a better me

today marks another wedding anniversary in the books for the two most important people in my life that’s supported and accommodated me in just about every possible way. sometimes it is difficult to show the gratitude towards how much they mean to me, but i am truly blessed to have received all the support throughout. always wishing my numerous commitments would allow us to spend more time together, but know that no matter how short, every moment we share is quality time i cherish

twenties series: [ten] values

image

i am a very stubborn individual, many people can justify that, but i am glad i am. i would never give up in what i believe in and would never give up what i love doing. what would life be without passion?? all i know is without passion, life is nothing but bland and worthless. no matter how many haters out there disapproving my decisions and love, sports is something i would not go without. people around me needs to compromise and understand what sports means to me in the grand scheme of things. i don’t know how many times i have said this, but if i have to give up and quit what i consider the most valuable things in life, what is the purpose of being alive?? i learn to set priorities and values straight and know that tennis, taekwondo, dodgeball, skiing are amongst all the activities i am addicted to. until i decide the time is right to taper down, i will pursue all that my heart desires; meaning i will continue to compete and aim at podium finishes at various competitions, hit tennis balls on the hardcourt without hesitation, play my game of dodgeball and shred the gnar with my skiing gear. and of course not to overlook that sports doesn’t make up my entire life. my family and friends are a great asset and a big part of my life for all unconditional love and support i receive from each and every one of them. special shoutouts to my parents because without them, there is no me, they gave me everything i have and got me to where i am now
