Time really flies so fast. First month of 2017 is already slowly fading away and we're about to say hello to the month of love in just few hours.
What happened in 2016? Why I haven't really updates this blog? If you follow my instagram @msappleallison you'll know by now that I've been through a lot last year. I ventured outside the Philippines to pursue some of my ASEAN advocacy and yes, I also gave love a chance but somehow that personal aspect failed. Hard to admit but it's true... I'm not really used to failure so it took me months to recover. I was nursing my heart and couldn't find the strength nor will to open this site. My instagram and Facebook Page served as my emotional outlet to feel a lot better. Yes, I totally ignored this site for several months and found myself asking why I should continue writing in this site... Well, I almost gave up but here I am, typing this letters as I reflect and think about my deepest why.
What do I want to do next? I still don't have a concrete plan... all I know is that as I am typing this post, I just want to restart again. Yes, I want to restart again and see where I can take this Sole Searching Soul journey. Everyday I keep telling myself that I should just move on... that I should move forward.
And now moving forward, I summon all the courage in me to write this post as a start. While I continue to pray for clarity and focus, I am reminded to "do what I love to do." And yes, I AM GOING TO DO WHAT I REALLY LOVE TO DO!
For now I want to go back to the core essence why I put this blog in public... to document and share stories on how I make a difference one trip at a time. And when I speak about making a difference, it also means making a difference in myself and inspiring others to do the same hoping that we can make a difference in our communities.
Now, I as celebrate my Sole Searching Soul's 3rd year anniversary, I am rekindling my passion+purpose statement ---
I AM GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE ONE TRIP, ONE POST, ONE TALK, AT A TIME.
I hope you can take this Sole Searching Soul journey with me. Your support means a lot to me.
Lord, as I look back and reflect on what happened in my life this 2016, I pray for enlightenment and guidance. Bless me with clarity of mind and heart so that I may understand your Holy will.
Talk to me in my dreams and let me see the path you specifically prepared for me. Oh God, direct my actions this 2017.
I lift up to you all my biggest dreams and #TAAP goals. AMEN.
