Marching into a Better Year

Hollah! I turned a year older last month and looking back, I believe the #TheClverJourney was one helluva ride. It’s been happy, sad, exciting, anxious, frustrating, fulfilling, and everything in between. And although I’m not yet sure if I was finally able to conquer my quarter life crises, I think I deserve a tap on the back for making it through this far without having a major breakdown. Hooray for that!

The next number is a whole new chapter, and I am all into investing to self-love – mind, body, soul. I recently leaned into healthy eating habits and availed a gym membership. Honestly, it’s all giving me a positive outlook and mood every day. I guess endorphins really do their work, huh? 🙂

It’s already the third of twelve 2019 months, and although there were already twists and turns earlier this year, I know that the rest of the year still has lot to offer, and the best and worst are yet to come.

I am soooo ready to embrace the beauty of living. To lesser kicks of anxiety and to more hacks of bravery, yes? Let’s do this! 🙂

Last June 11, 2016, Saturday, I joined the Mu Sigma Epsilon Sorority – UST Faculty of Medicine‘s Spectrun 2016: Run 2 Save Lives at Roxas Boulevard, a color charity fun run for the pediatric cancer patients of Tahan-Tahanan Foundation. I really love doing outreach and charity works, so whenever I have the chance and the means, I really engage myself into such activities.

I was with my friends Kent, Nikki and Sir Yves. We ran for the 3K marathon except for Kent who ran for 5K. Special thanks to my high school batchmate, Christopher (not in the picture), for inviting us in the event. He’s a UST Med student by the way. 🙂

This is my first run for this year because I had been busy during the first half of 2016. I am looking forward to more runs that will benefit needy. 🙂

We even saw former Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim when we had our breakfast at Jollibee – Harbour Square. His whole team was just on the table next to us. Hahaha. We wanted to take a photo with him but he seemed busy that time.

Congratulations to the whole team behind Spectrun 2016 for pulling off a successful color run!

It was really a fun run. During the run, I think I wasn’t just doing it for the cancer patients, but for myself as well. I felt free. I never felt so free for a long time, and I’m glad that I’m experiencing it now.

It feels great to finally be able to do things without something that’s holding me back. It feels great to run with a light heart. It feels great that I am now running again after getting a wound from falling.

Life is indeed a race… A colorful race.
