Praises to God that now the pieces i’ve been collecting are coming together perfectly and accordingly, and for that, i couldn’t be anymore grateful..it takes quite a while for me to notice that things are given to me for reasons and by things i mean everything..each person you meet, each decision you choose, each place you visit, each stage and phase of life you undergo..and for that too, i am beyond grateful for what i had, what i have and what i will be having..here’s a timeline i’d like to share and yes you’ll get what i’m trying to say at the end of this post 🙂
2008 – destiny brought me to wellington and it was a start to a very different chapter of my life – the new friends i made, the new places i went to, the new perspectives i discovered, the clues to every other things occurring from this starting point..
2009 – i encountered a different stage and phase of life on this year..began to be independent socially, juggling studies, LDR and some other pressuring issues and this year was quite a jump start altogether, both drastic and dramatic..some things end, some others started and some others were left hanging and discontinued..
2010 – i grew up to be more mature and fluent with the decisions i made and after winter that year, after one month spent abroad with constant communications and catch up, i figured that what was left hanging and discontinued the year before, was trying to find a proper placing this year..i was terrified with all of the possibilities considering the history i had with it and the blurry future it was trying to offer..so i flew home that summer..
21.12.2010 – let’s just say i saw sincerity in him..he’s letting go of his pasts and he’s meaning to move on and started anew, and he chose me..it was a bit too soon for him to decide who he planned to make me but he decided anyway that he knew where he’ll be heading with me..i gave it a try..he did too..and we moved on from just trying to really wanting to make it worked..
a lot had happened since then..adaptations, accepting one another, denials, arguments, communication break downs, smooth rides rough rides everything..until there’s a point in this relationship that making decisions were never a one sided process..
09.06.2012 – at this stage we already planned for a wedding so that weekend, we decided to visit the possible venues for our wedding reception..so one of the venues was a golf club in melaka..i showed him the hall, the pool area, the greens etc and i found him so busy looking around like there were just too many people observing him..like suddenly he had to check if there’s enough sunlight for a good photo..and we discovered a newly developed housing project so we decided to have a look and while touring the house, he’s busy checking on the worker that was following us, checking the bed, the balcony the kitchen space! but he was not satisfied, i might say..so when we walked out of the show unit, he asked me to go check the lake with him and so i did because suddenly he thought he had a good view to capture..and i was about to capture the view myself when he got down on his knees asking for my hand in marriage..it was quite a disbelief and may be too good to be true and may be just too overwhelming but i said yes! 🙂
14.07.2012 – when his family came to my humble place to officiate a betrothal between us..to mark a different starting point in my life that i’m about to encounter some serious business here and there was just plenty of things to do before i could step in to another stage of life..
it’s not always a smooth sailing rides but we both are trying build a successful future with everything that we have and Godwillingly our pasts would remain a learned history and the future would give us new hopes..
