Tomorrow is the day. The day I stop going to Starmall, and eventually lose my Mayorship of the place on Foursquare. Last week, on Tuesday, I left the office at about 6pm while there were still shoots ongoing for FLiQ. And I felt a tinge of sadness, maybe even pain as I walked down the stairs. It has been 16 years after all. And I know that tomorrow, everything changes.
I don’t know where this new road will take me. But I am excited, apprehensive, inspired, scared, challenged and every other emotion you can think of all rolled into one. Like the first day of school. Or the night before my wedding. Or while waiting for a child to be born. It’s like that. Ok maybe not as intense, but it comes close.
I told Des to give me these three years to “scratch this itch” called politics. And then let’s see what happens next. I know I am capable of helping the country. And I am being mentored by one of the best. We can make good laws that will help the Philippines. It’s going to be an awesome ride.
Pray for me again. And you are always welcome to visit Batasan (once I figure out how to get people on the guest list). Here we go! Just close my eyes and leap!
