I gave away my crown today…
It was a nostalgic evening– I relived the moments I spent onstage one year ago from a whole new angle. A year ago, things were so different– I was one of the many starry-eyed wannabes vying for the much-coveted titles. Today, I was cheering and congratulating them as one who has been there, done that. I must say, winning a pageant really isn’t chicken feat. (And there are secrets that a beauty queen will never reveal. 😀 )
It was a roller coaster of emotions tonight. Joy mixed with empathy. Benevolence mixed with apathy.
Well, I suppose I shouldn’t feel too teary-eyed about it. “Beauty with a purpose” surely doesn’t end here– the reign may only be for a year but the title is forever. Greater things to come, as yet! 😉
At this juncture, I also wanna remember all you peeps! My friends and family who shouldered me along the way and made me who I am today. I just wanna let you know that I’d do the same for you too! Love you! xoxo… 🙂
