Alright, I said that previous post was going to be my only entry. Well, I didn't intend to tell a lie while typing that. People are simply dynamic. Ergo, they change their minds.
I actually intended to include this in the previous post but it's far too valuable and too far-fetched from that topic. Fads? Inspiration? They just don't sound right together. Sorry.
So, anyway, I told the Facebook-sphere via status update that I would be undergoing changes soon - towards becoming the kind of person that I want to be. My powerful young cousin has already started pressing me for them. Well, I haven't even started thinking about it yet. I've just been knocked over and I need time to get up properly and compose myself before I do something drastic.
My good friend and adopted sister, Mitzi,gave me a great piece of advice. She said, "In making changes, let it not be a shadow of your old self. Remember, remorse always comes after." Wow! I thought that made my day. I was wrong.
One more great thing came my way! A formerly unknown personality - now a new good friend - from Nicaragua sent me a message saying how she admired my writings. I was already inclined to respond right there and then but I didn't know what to say. You see, I've been dying for sensible and intelligent conversations for over a month now (since being in Manila with Lea Salonga) and when one was apparent, I didn't know what to do. I started off with adding her as a Facebook friend.
While I was composing my response, she commented on one of my posts with very inspiring words. I was awestruck! Seriously! I've never had such intelligent statements addressed to me in so long. And then another response... and another! She is definitely one to call a friend and to cherish. It's amazing to find a friend who could appreciate what I do - from across the world. Thank you.
I should say, the world needs more people like you. You're such a blessing.
And, oh, she seems like a very reserved person so I won't publish her name here like I do others.
