Last weekend, a friend asked me a question that caught me off-guard. The question's fairly simple but sometimes it's really the simplest of questions that are the hardest to answer.
"Are you happy?"
His question made me do a re-evaluation of my life. And my honest answer to him was "I am not super duper happy, but I am also not sad. I am right there in the middle. I still have alot of unrealized dreams, but I believe I will achieve them one by one. Maybe happy's not the right term. Steady lang ako. Steady, that's what I am."
I am excited for changes that will happen in my life in the next few months. Finally, I will be able to tick off one major item off of my bucket list. Hehehe. I used to be afraid of growing old. But as I grow older, I realize that I feel more empowered, more self-sufficient and more cognizant of the things that truly matter. I am not super duper happy nor am I sad. But I feel good where I am. And I guess, that's what matters, at least for now.
