I was reading the drafts from my old WordPress blog, then I came across my birthday blog post two years ago. Back in 2013; I knew where I wanted to be and I am certain at my goal and was focused to reach it.
Aren’t we tired of saying this every year? Mostly on the day of our birth, seldom on New Year’s eve. Do we really know where we are heading? What we wanted to achieve? But then again, only time can reveal.
Two years after, here I am in a foreign land celebrating my twenty-three years of existence on this planet. I don’t know where I am headed and what are my goals. I am not focused. What to do?
I am a year older, but not a year wiser. I hope next year, I’ll be!
P.S. In case you’ll ask, I didn’t get to my goal 2 years ago.
Two years ago, I shared with you this same quote from Maria Ressa.
The person you are today is created by all your past selves, but your actions today actually CHANGE those older versions of yourself.
