It has been thirteen months of no blogging on this website. Needless to say, I am not proud of it but it did not happen for no reason. I do, however, hate excuses so I chose to take another approach.
Before I move on, all there is left to say about what happened in those thirteen months is: life.
We all live and learn in one way or another. Today, I can’t be more grateful for having a new way of learning life. As I mentioned before, rather than excuses, I prefer talking about all the learned lessons from January 2012 to January 2013. There are more than enough to feed one’s soul.
On every given day!
Over the years, I have learned a lot by being online. Therefore, it is safe to say that it is one of my biggest inspirations. That is why every time someone asks the reason I’m here, my answer is always ‘to learn by sharing’. It does not come without any consequences, though, because who knows what kind of people we might bump into?
After all, each of us has different ‘reasons’ for being online.
Thanks to the better part of the bunch, I am not only inspired but also motivated to keep on doing what I started last year. It was a new thing for me and it came with a price. You see, I get bored easily most especially when it’s about things that do not stimulate my brains. So to make me do something, over and over again, it takes a lot of will power and there better be results!
Yes, I started (and finished) the 365/6 days photo project last year. The result is as seen in the above picture. There were times when I feel like giving up, no doubt! So I still can’t believe I made it! Props go to my families and friends (and everybody in between) who have always been great supports! Looking back, I smile and laugh at myself. It is amazing to know exactly what I did every day of a year, that’s why!
A dear friend once asked me if I could pick a favorite month in 2012 and my answer is no, I couldn’t! Because it’s my life so I have to accept every single day in it. Now I am glad I can keep on doing this. Eventually, the determination paid off since I have a new way of doing it which is even better because I can do both – daily picture and story – in one go!
After all is said and done, the main lesson for me would be this: We don’t live only once! We die once.
We live every day.
