How To Say A Proper Farewell To 2018 and Get Ready To Make 2019 A Year To Remember!

Life was good in 2018: I had a successful career, got a solid relationship with my family and relatives, good health and sound finances. Reflecting on all that I've done, all that I've learnt and all that I've grateful for is to say a proper goodbye to 2018.

To recognize and acknowledge all that you've been through, all you've done and all that you're grateful for the past months: the pain, the love, the lessons, the achievements, the people and the memories that marked this year and made it distinct - that stand out in the last 12 months.

Now, it's time to take a moment, need to step back and reflect on the year I've just lived.

Let's start with my HAPPIEST MEMORIES.

  1. My third visit to Mati City, Davao Oriental together with my #TeamDDI (Davao Digital Influencers Bloggers/Vloggers) as Visit Davao Summer Festival launches Summer Fun in Dahican 2018Still part of VDSF event #longest #widest summer festival, we made a Day Tour trip at Lubi Plantation, Flanax Samal Marathon, covering the 1st Aquathlon at ComVal and the Hataw Dabaw Street Dance and Openstyle Competition.
  2. Davao Digital Influencers Inc. Second Year Anniversary.
  3. Assumption College of Davao Alumni Homecoming, my batch is the host batch!

I still have a lots of happiest memories in 2018, but this are my Top Choices!


I honestly agree, that life satisfaction falls in our 20s and 30s, then hits a trough in our 40s. It's like a midlife crisis for me, a self-eating spiral of discontent. It's not because there's something wrong with my life, or  my mind or my mental health, or my marriage. For me, it's a natural transition, simply due to the passing of time that not everyone experience a sunnier outlook within the early 40s.

I remember myself at 20, I had so many accomplishment and thinking by middle age believing that I will make great profit in the future. I may say I have surpass depression after my failed marriage, living with my parents with my two tweens. Two years without proper financial income, stressed and overworked in my early 40s, these experiences made me rethink and reflect that LIFE should be appreciated everyday!


I am still fortunate. I have a good health (Praise God!) and now I'm in my early 40s, which is very difficult because I noticed this strange feeling of restlessness and discontent but I came out strong and dependent woman for 18 years, I met one goal after another with more success than I'd ever expected. And that gave me a great feeling of satisfaction with my life.

Though sometimes I began to think there must be something wrong with me. I began to think negatively about my personality in some way and that of course compounded the problem. These feelings of discontent and restlessness and even sometimes I think I am not worth it! I'd almost wasted my 2018 life thinking of it.

As we grow older, our values change. It is also helpful to stop comparing our self to others. But if all that makes no difference, give it time!


As it comes to an end, we need to create a vision and a plan to help us to thrive and create a life you love in the year to come. Get ready to say THANK YOU 2018 and get ready to MAKE 2019 a year to remember
