Wonderful Farewell

When I started this blog, I never thought that I would have such a wonderful journey as a nascent writer. I’ve always dreamed of being one but dreaming and putting it into reality are two different matters.

Hiding in my words through this site was easier than working seriously to chase my heart’s wishes. But, it just dawned on me upon being suffused in a new day that I am now ready to embark in a more challenging facet of my life- to toil and not just dream.

Apparently, just like a butterfly that emerged from its cocoon, the “writer side” of me has finally metamorphosed into ripeness. I am no longer the DREAMER who was afraid of embarking into uncertainties. “Fear naught…” I wrote once, and my heart will always be enthused by that.

I wrote many times about happiness, hope and success but life is also about failures. I might fall in the course of my journey but I’m certain I would stand repeatedly with lifted chin to show to the whole world that I am proud because I gave my best.

Successes come from repeated failures. Now, I am no longer afraid to fail and to say goodbye for a while.

Let the dreamer chase the dreams she has woven…

  2. Temporarily...

    I need to concentrate to make sure that I'll have more feats than failures.

    This blog is the first step in the ladder of achieving my dreams. I am now ready to take the next one.

    Sometimes, farewell could also mean a new beginning.

    Someone special completely changed my perspective in life.

  4. Oh, no. i just found you.I have to read everything to understand what makes a beautiful writer stop writing.

    "Sometimes, farewell could also mean a new beginning.">>> True but sometime we don't need to say farewell, but we just need to branch out to have endless path.

    Thanks a lot for the inspiration. One day I'll be share my pains if I fail and shout my triumphs if I succeed.

  6. Thanks Maya.

    I guess that's why I entitled this post as Wonderful Farewell because I am going to embark in a new facet of my life with countless possibilities.

    Probably what I am about to do is really more of branching out. Meantime I got to bid farewell first.

    When I first came to your blog, I felt something totally different about the things you write. It was like something was hidden inside your words. Sometimes your posts really touched my feelings. I will miss you and your great posts. Hope you'll be back soon and wish you all the best in your days ahead.

    "My life started at 28. My soul died for me.." I told you that I liked it very much when I first came here :)

    Hi Tita Nins,
    Dream doesn't bid farewell. It neither rests nor stops; it just waits for that perfect timing.

    I wish you goodluck. Don't ever stop dreaming...

  17. I am sad to found your blog only bidding goodbye.. I could have read more inspiring words from you.. I hope you come back sooner.. wish you luck in your journey.

  18. Hey Nina

    All the very best...somehow though I feel you will be back to weave and to inspire with words like only you can...

  19. You will succeed because you try. The succeeding is in the trying, that's what dreamers do, they take the chance to fulfill the dream. I not only wish you the very best of luck, but also thank you for reminding me not to give up my dreams, to continue to try!

    I was saddened at first reading this post, but then inspired as I read further. You have a wonderful blog filled with ideas, and dare I say "Dreams"?, which, as a matter of course, is what it's all about.

    You are the captain of your ship Nina, sail her to your destiny!

  20. omg...I didn't realize you weren't going to be blogging anymore. I just found you. :( I have really enjoyed your blog. Good luck to you! :)

  21. Nina,
    I wish you the very best! Stay in touch pleae...
