Regine for 2014: Look forward and be positive
Regine Velasquez was beset with problems this year, including her father having been hospitalized for sometime.
The singer acknowledged that her bout with seeming negativity “overshadowed” some of the more beautiful things that happened in her life in 2013.
“Hindi ko alam kung ano ‘yung magandang bagay na nangyari sa akin, marami naman, kaya lang minsan nao-overshadow ng panget ‘yung maganda so, parang, hindi ko maisip kung ano ‘yung maganda,” she told Bulletin Entertainment. “That’s very human.”
Among blessings she is thankful for was her father’s eventual recovery as with the two concerts she staged this year – the repeat of her 25th anniversary “Silver” concert and the “Foursome” Valentine’s Day concert with Ogie Alcasid, Pops Fernandez and Martin Nievera, which she considers highlights of her career:
Regine says she doesn’t expect anything big for 2014, saying that she doesn’t want to preempt fate. If anything, she tries to remain optimistic even as she continues to pray for the best.
“I’m just looking forward period.
“Parang right now sa sitwasyon natin parang that’s all we need lang. You just look ahead and keep praying. Kasi hindi naman natin alam what’s gonna happen in the future. You just have to keep praying, looking forward and be positive,” she said.
While admitting that she often looks back to what happened over the year, Regine avoids harboring any regret reasoning that “it’s not gonna change anything.”
She explains, “‘Di ba you keep regretting na ‘Sana hindi ko na ginawa ‘yon.’ Nabago ba? Hindi naman. So, parang you just feel guilty.”
