This Time Last Year

Friday, June 17, 2016

This time last year, everything was so different. I would have never imagined things to be better than I had expected.

This time last year, I got homesick so often and had the strong urge to return home, to Penang. I booked air ticket back home but hesitated on leaving because I had just started to enjoy my time in Singapore. Little did I know, staying in my comfort zone didn't help me very much. Mundaneness maddened my soul. I vowed to never stop being adventurous and learn in life.

This time last year, I wasn't sure of what I wanted to do in life, which direction I was heading to, and wasn't as motivated as I am today. I was confused of my situation, of why I was where I was, and of my own sense of direction in life. My grades weren't as good and I wasn't able to manage my time well. Contrary to that however, my results have improved significantly this semester. I've discovered my goal and am focusing on achieving that. 

This time last year, you weren't in my life and I'm glad I saved myself for you. I'm glad I didn't settle for anyone else and waited for your presence. Having you in my life is such a blessing. You said your wish is to make me happy but you're my happiness. You are, and you will always be.

This time last year, my thoughts weren't as mature as it is today. It's a fact that we are all constantly growing and I've evolved through all the though situations. It's amazing how fast I've been maturing by moving out and coming overseas alone. I'm growing, and I'm embracing independence.
