Forgiveness is the remedy. It doesn’t mean you’re erasing the past, or forgetting what happened. It means you’re letting go of the resentment and pain, and instead choosing to learn from the incident and move on with your life.

I’m terrible at blogging. I think my last personal post on tumblr was in February. That was probably the last time I actually logged on to this thing before this morning.

I think it’s crazy how time flies by, and I think it’s crazy how much can happen within the span of, let’s say, 6 months. I was in a terrible place 6 months ago, and this morning happened to be one of those mornings where I woke up feeling a strange, but nice sense of peaceful. 

It took me 6 months to get over him, and this is what happened in those 6 months:

  • Completed my 2nd half marathon which is ranked intermediate in terms of difficult because of the elevation. (Did I PR? Hell no, but SLO is so beautiful, and I’m just happy to have finished.)
  • Raised over $2300 to benefit cancer research and patient services (and I made great friends on my team who share a love for running as well).
  • Lost the happy fat I gained when I was in a relationship and gain mental and physical strength as well as motivation and self-confidence towards diving into more challenging activities (ahem, crossfit). 
  • Quit my job in Murrieta, left Rancho Cucamonga (and all of the feelings associated with memories made in my first apartment to myself)
  • Accepted a 6-month contract in Northridge, not knowing what happens next after October (but hoping I’ll still be needed after the fact)
  • Moved to LA. (I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I do love LA now that I live here)
  • Agreed to go on a blind date that was set up by a mutual friend. We’re not dating currently, but it’s nice to know that I was able to make a friend in the city.
  • I’m currently exploring the LA dating scene. Yay single life.

Loved ones told me that the break-up was a blessing in disguise, and now I know how true that is. I’m continuing to do the things that make me happy. I can’t love and invest myself in someone else unless I whole-heartedly love myself. I know what I want in the next boyfriend I’ll have, whenever that may be, and I won’t settle for anything less. I need to be with someone who’s in a similar phase of life as I am, someone who’s got his shit together.  

Yum yum tocilog (tocino + itlog (egg)). This is why I hardly dine out for the food of my people. #pinaypride #kainnatayo #homemade #domesticKP
