it's the last day of the year
i look back in trembling and fear
have i done enough ?
did i mess up stuff ?

yet the future holds no boundaries
we get to plan out our journey
though we know not what the future holds
it's time to step out, be courageous and bold

different people came in and walked out
some of them make you scream and shout
yet others taught you in life lessons oh so valuable
to make u better, more presentable

i thank God for an eventful year
though sometimes i was reduced to tears
still it made me tougher and stronger
with hope, next year will definitely be better

Have you ever felt like a person watching a game of chess?

You know every single move that has been played, you foresee the next move, and you know that the queen will be taken down in the next 2 moves... yet, there is nothing you can do about it... because there's just no room for you. and all you can do is watch from the side, and keep your thoughts inside.

yup, that is probably how i feel about myself now... what a good analogy...

You Are a Good Friend Because You're Honest

Like it or not, your friends are going to hear the truth from you.
You know that the truth hurts, but living a life of lies is much worse.

So while you're definitely kind and supportive, you don't pull any punches with your friends.
Everyone knows where they stand with you. And what you like and dislike about them.

While some may be initially turned off by your honesty, your friends have come to consider it a virtue.
After all, in world of white lies and deceptive politeness, you can be counted on for honesty and integrity.

Your friends need you most when: They need good advice or an intelligent opinion

You really can't be friends with: Needy, emotional people

Your friendship quote: "True friendship can afford true knowledge. It does not depend on darkness and ignorance."
never in my lifetime, i would imagine,
that i will be able to meet...
so many friends and brothers,
that connection that transcends normal understanding.

its that one thing, though unknown,
brought us all to know one another...
its that one thing, though unseen,
allows us to communicate beyond words...

i've been blessed...
in less than 6 months...
i've gain more than i've given,
friends that would go the distance...
a treasure indeed to keep
friends that you can trust your life with,
a true blessing from above...

God, thank you for loving me... by giving me friends that would love me enough to go the distance for me... just like you...

really... i would have never imagined to be able to make friends this fast, let alone get friends that i know i can trust albeit knowing them for less than 2 weeks. and as i know them even more, they amaze me further with their character, cause in them lies a trait i want to learn, be it confidence, trustworthiness, or honesty. i am really counting my blessings, cause i know this people are placed in my life for a reason and purpose... my prayer now is that i be as good a friend to them as they have been to me. i like what a friend say, " every time i come into contact with someone, my aim is to bring them a higher level, so they can go that one level higher." its paraphrased, but generally, thats what it says la. truly inspiring.

hopefully, one day i can do what the verse below says. right now, i am just too afraid to die. too young. lol

" greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for a friend"
-john 15:13-
