Amidst the rough seas 2017 threw me into, God sent angels into my life to help me through it. It was the year where I opened up my eyes and saw, felt and counted my blessings. It's an overwhelming epiphany that always leaves me shookt when I reflect upon it, and I have nothing but pure gratitude for it.
It was a year of opportunities, especially as a DJ and 'model'(?). I saw my body change through BodyPump and cleared my IMT. I finally got into a full-split in my yoga practice. @playoverwatch changed my life. @tinashenow picked up on me.🔥 I completed my National Service with Music & Drama Company. I got to return home to Bangkok for a few days. And through a whole year of singlehood, my self-worth also returned. I became more assured in my identity and looks, transcending beyond and between mannerisms as a gay man. I wanted to be whoever and whatever I felt like, and I did.
But the one thing that I learned in 2017 — that I'm bringing with me into 2018 to improve on — is seeing the good in people. I realized my easily resentful nature was a shit magnet. Unknowingly allowing unnecessary negative energy and weight into my life. But the rat was caught fortunately, and as a personal resolution (and revolution), I want to embody the spirit of positivity even more.
I want to master the art of forgiveness and to feel freely and fearlessly. Because that's the beauty of being human, even if it throws you to the fire. I want to be the best that I can be, and I want to help others do the same. I want to curse less, smile and say thank you more.
Moving forward into a new year with a renewed mindset and energy, I'm also grateful that the universe has given me another shot in chasing my NYC dreams. "I want to be a part of it... I'm gonna make a brand new start of it", and I will do everything in my will to make it happen this time. It's you and me, 2018. Come at me. x
