THE LAST 525,600 MINUTES

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.

In five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure a year in the life?
How about love? How about love? How about love?
Measure in Love.
Seasons of Love. Seasons of Love.

I was planning to write a lengthy post on my adventures of the last 525,600 minutes. But, I guess, I wrote enough about it already and doing another post might be too much. I've been blessed with so many things and I believe that I haven't been thankful enough. Though a lot is not going the way I wanted it to be...I still know that I had a blessed and fruitful 28th year.

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes!
Five hundred twenty-five thousand journeys to plan.


Journeys. My twenty-eighth year is all about journeys. Journeys to self-discovery, journeys to self-reliance, journeys to great places and journeys to standing up after each fall. I walked, I drove, I rode and I definitely crawled a lot this year.

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure the life of a woman or a man?
In truths that she learned, or in times that he cried.
In bridges he burned, or the way that she died.


There are so many truths I learned this year. From finally believing that I am not the ONE to accepting that I cannot do all things on my own. I had mixed feelings when I finally said goodbye to two relationships which are not doing anything good to me anymore. The first one was the love relationship which I thought would last forever and the other one was my stay at my last company. Both have bittersweet partings which I learned a lot from.

I also shed a lot of tears this year. My dad was hospitalized late last year and it definitely rocked my family's boat. It was unexpected and painful but it also showed who our real friends are. A lot of support were given to us by friends and family alike which we are very thankful until now. I never blog or write too much about my family, I guess it's one topic which I am not very open to discuss. We are all good and happy and I think that's enough information to give.

It's time now to sing out, tho' the story never ends
Let's celebrate
Remember a year in the life of friends
Remember the love!


A year in the life of friends. I have gazillions of friends! But as I grow older, I learned how to stick to a select group who have been with me through thick and thin on this journey of life. It's nice to celebrate with them every ups and downs that I encountered this year. Horay for friends!

Remember the love!
Seasons of love!


As I move on to the last year of my 20s, I hope that I would be given more blessings to share with my family and friends. The theme for the year to come is moving on and leaving the baggage and hurts of the past. Now that I am out of the rut, I pray and hope for better things to come. I also pray for good health for my family and rich (figuratively and literally) abundance of blessings for my friends. I also wish for a happy heart that would be able to give great love once more!

Thank you Lord for the gift of life! Thank you for the Seasons of Love!
