Site Reborn

Guess who’s back? Back again.

Pardon the Eminem reference but I am too happy to be back again after my two-year hiatus.

Can you believe it? I actually lost my drive to write and blog for the last couple of years. I always blamed it with my busy work schedules and hectic life.

Now that I think about it, my busy lifestyle was just one part of the equation. The problem had more to do with myself. I got so lost in the heady rush of making it in this fast paced world that I forgot who I really was.

I glorified the art of being busy to the point that I would look down at others who did nothing or who just plain enjoyed their lives. Don’t get me wrong. I loved my previous job, albeit it was a love-hate relationship one. It gave me a sense of purpose, like I’m actually making a difference out there. But I realized that it was also a double-edged sword. While I was too busy trying to change the world, I forgot to change myself along with it.

I got so lost in the outside world without realizing that I had lost my sense of self. It wasn’t my career’s fault. I got too ambitious, always wanting to climb the ladder even though I didn’t know where it was headed.

I did not know how or when it came to be but one day, I just realized that I needed to stop. Stop whatever I was doing and ask myself if this is what I intend to do for the rest of my life.

Tinfinity and Beyond-5
Second time to explore my favorite place in the world – Malalison Island at Culasi, Antique.

In my heart I knew the answer. That’s why no matter how much it hurt to say goodbye to that career path and to the people I considered to be my work family, I knew I had to do it. Or else I’d risk getting stuck inside an endless whirlpool of what-ifs and regrets. I decided that it was time to close that particular door of my life.

I set out for another path after dusting myself off. And what a journey it was. I was fortunate to have a wonderful support group in my family and friends. I don’t know what I would’ve done without them. They made the transition so much easier for me.

Now I’m off on another track. It was a complete 180 degree turnaround for me. After everything that has happened, I am finally returning to this blog. For now, that’s good enough for me. As time goes by, I hope that I’d be able to regain my confidence and commitment to my first love – writing.

So my dear readers, welcome. This is Tinfinity and Beyond 2.0. I know a lot has changed in the past two years. Hopefully, I’ve grown and evolved. You are welcome to join me on this journey.

On my third trip last December 2015 to Malalison Island, Culasi, Antique.

Cheers to new beginnings!
