Dear Future Partner

What a very long night for me. I cheated on my coffee diet and that rewards me of being awake all night. I’m trying hard to fall asleep until I decided to give up and just use my night on something more meaningful… like writing.  I’m looking for a good subject to write when I remember my conversation with my awesome bro Dom earlier that night (he’s the one I had coffee with HAHA). We talk about our respective previous “almost-relationship” and how we continue to move forward from it and be excited for our future relationship.

Dear Future Partner,

I won’t to ask where you are or what you’ve been doing, because your answer would be the same as mine. Preparing. Preparing your experiences, your stories, your quirks and flaws, to fall neatly in place with mine to make something beautiful.

There might be a very good chance that you will read this blog in the near future and you will laugh how silly I can be in writing something for you just because I feel like this letter is more and real instead of some made up daydream.

I just want you to know that what I’m most looking forward to in our relationship is going on dates with you, I want you to take me on endless dates, whether that includes romantic dinners, road trips, or staying in.. but most importantly, you need to know that my favorite dates will always be ones that include prayer, or celebrating Sunday mass or attending Praise and Worship concert. If we are dating then you know how important my faith is. Jesus is my number 1 priority and I expect you to be 100% supportive with me and join me in practicing my faith.

If you’re the one for me I know that you’ll treat me like the daughter of God that I am. I mean by all means feel free to spoil me as much as you want (I’m not going to stop you) but remember that it doesn’t mean much more to me than a bouquet of flowers or a love note tucked into my book to make me feel like I’m the luckiest girl in the world. I know being a guy can be hard but it really doesn’t take much to make that girl in your life feel like cloud nine. So please don’t forget the flowers every anniversary.

I am nowhere close to being perfect. Please know that you are falling in love with my insecurities and my obsessions with trying to figure out what everyone thinks of me. You are falling in love with my immaturity; my constant need to feel loved and appreciated, my over inactive tear ducts, my twitter and Instagram obsession, my tendency to be too clingy. You will fall in love with my troubled past and all my hopes and dreams, and how I’m hopeless romantic at heart.

They say, “when a man loves a woman he doesn’t just say it. He proves it.” I want you to know that I pray for you every day. I pray and ask that Jesus will help you become the man of God that he has created you to be.

But for now, enjoy your life my love, I can’t wait to find you and spend the rest of my life with you.

TWENTY FIFTEEN

If you’d ask me to describe 2014, I can definitely say that it’s one for the books. It was a roller coaster ride filled not just with fun but also with loud screams and cries. It was a year full of surprises and overcoming great challenges with God’s grace. Finishing school last year opened doors to a whole new level of challenges, and really brought me into the phase of becoming a young adult. As I capped off 2014 as a year of learning, I’m glad I’ve started rediscovering myself, realizing what it means to grow up so I hope it all blooms out from here.

 
2015-fireworks

 

2015 is now here and instead of coming up with a long list of New Year’s resolutions, I’ve decided to imagine something more realistic. I’d love to share some of my ideas with you, hoping that they’ll inspire you girls as well! The following posts on my blog will give you a more detailed glimpse on how it’s going for me.

 

GOAL: Learn how to drive and get a driver’s licence.

GAME PLAN: Enroll to driving school

 

GOAL: Maintain a healthier lifestyle

GAME PLAN: Less coffee, more fruits (or fruit juice) and manage my sleeping habits.

 

GOAL: Learn how to cook

GAME PLAN: Eating is fun but cooking is a lot enjoyable. Don’t just eat! Learn how to cook.

 

GOAL: Pursue my calling and begin to focus

GAME PLAN: Explore options, spend time rediscovering my strengths and learn to say NO.

 

May this blog entry be a reminder of my 2015 goals. Have yourselves a fulfilling 2015! x
