Another year draws to an end.
I've made a lot of mistakes this past year, but you know what? If I could relive it again, I wouldn't change a single thing.
Why not, you ask? Right now is the happiest I've been in a long time. I certainly had a lot of drawbacks in the year 2007, but I gotta admit, it was all worth it.
I lost some friends this year, and there's nothing I can do about that. In fact, I'd rather not do anything about it anymore. It's just not worth my time. Or theirs. We're all happy. Well, most of us, anyway.
As my good friend Zue always says to me, "The world does not revolve around you, Buquir." And by golly, she's right.
So my new year's resolution? Don't sweat the small stuff. AND THEY'RE ALL SMALL STUFF.
I've learned not to worry too much about what other people think of me. And I'm hoping that this epiphany of mine will last the whole year round.
Admittedly, I am sad about one friendship I had to let go. But I have to move on. Dwelling on it is just plain stupid.
I have friends now who I know care about me. Who won't judge me for my decisions. Because ultimately, it is our choices that define us. I hope I can be as good a friend to them as they are to me. That's another resolution, I guess.
So happy new year to all of us. And as always, I wish you all interesting lives. Here's hoping 2008 is just as scandalous.
