Change

I said I wanted to go somewhere far, far away and come back a completely different person before Christmas. But I failed. Today I woke up to this message from someone:

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. Merry Christmas Viviene.”

I realized that I don’t need to go somewhere far to know who I really am. The change will start in me. It’s just that sometimes, I just need to be reminded. Thank you. 

I want to celebrate Christmas with a smile on my face and a heart full of joy, a heart healed with love. My heart is not fully healed but I’m pretty sure I’ll be fine. 

Merry Christmas to my family, friends, readers, followers and to everyone reading this. I’m just here. I will change for good but I’ll make sure that part of the old me will still remain. I love you. God bless everyone!

Be the change that you wish to see in the world,

Viviene

With my crazy bff :) Sarah Dessen once wrote, “Life is an awful, ugly place to not have a best friend.” I love her.

Reunited with my Baguio friends last Saturday. I don’t get to see them anymore because I’m living and studying in Manila, so I want to thank them for giving me time. It was fun, super fun. We just all wanted to catch up.  We spent most of our time drinking, talking, dancing, and laughing. I’m happy to have seen friends again, after a long time (3 months). I love you mofos! It’s true, you cannot please everyone, but there are real friends who will stick around.

Love,

Viviene
