Count Your Blessings

Gloomy skies, feels like rain is coming.

Splish, splash, sploosh.

Today’s just a lovely day, woke up at 7am and got ready to accompany Nanay to town with cousin. Finally, we were able to pass the requirements without any hassle. Got home early and ate, did some cleaning and sorted out the room once again and changed the sheets today! Yay! Fresh and clean sheets, yes! Isn’t it nice?

Anyway, I know I kinda don’t make sense and there’s nothing too exciting but I am just grateful for this life. For today. For being able to wake up this morning and do the things I need to do, maybe not all of it but still, I can eat, drink, talk, read, sing and see like I did yesterday.

I have read the news and talked about it with a friend on what’s happened in Ferguson, the no indictment thingybob and stuff.. I never actually watched it, I have read some of it, but never dared watched it. It only breaks my heart.. and will make me upset in a way.

So there, I just counted some of my blessings today which made me a whole lot thankful to be alive. To be where I am today, I am grateful I am a Filipino, that I may not have experienced a lot with my bio family, I still have people to call my family; I am grateful for the senses, for being able to breathe, to feel, think, hear, see and say the things I want to say. I am grateful for the weather, the rain, and the beautiful sun; for the roof, the shelter, the love and care of people, and most, for the people I am surrounded with. There’s actually a lot more to be thankful for, words are merely not enough to express every bit of it.

And oh, I am thankful for technology, that I am able to reach out and connect to friends I don’t get to see everyday and to make friends and meet new people as well. Yay!

Thank you God! I lost count on how many blessings I am grateful for. Haha

What about you, what are you thankful for? How many blessings can you count today? ♥

Know Your Worth.

There is no wrong for recognizing your worth.

Ola!

I am back on here, temporarily that is. 🙂

It’s been a while, worked on my new blog and stuff and things were smooth sailing until my website was suspended. ha! Howzat for a change?

So I’ve been on hiatus and thought of posting on here for some time and I missed blogging so yeah.

There have been too many things that happened.. some good, most were not so good ones. Like unfortunate ones actually.. however, there’s always good in the bad. Or maybe that’s just how I am.

So what’s new?

Pardon all the selfies but I don’t do it as often.. but when I do, I just do. Haha

Anywho, there have been a lot of ups and downs and roller coaster of emotions and happenings from that hiatus I’ve been on but still standing. I have come a long way since. Still trying to be the very best version of myself every single day.

I came back being “healthier” for some time now although I haven’t been consistent for weeks as we have been busy at home lately but I can say, and have noticed differences on my body and my system, mentally and emotionally wise as well. Still striving and got a long waaay to go yet I am enjoying this journey.

There’s still that list of unending rants and downsides/ difficulties (technical, financial and a whole lot of stuff) but life doesn’t end there. Sometimes I feel like giving up but heck, this life’s too precious to give up on and I’ve got too many things to do yet, too many places to go and discover, too many people yet to meet. Ah! The joys of life and living!

The title itself, know your worth speaks a lot of what I have been through lately.. I got rid of of a few people that’s not meant to stay in my life and not worth staying, and felt great.. I learned not to chase people who’s not worth my time which is really really great, and now feeling comfortable of being by myself (relationship wise that is). I have learned that I really don’t need people to validate my worth, and it’s never ever selfish knowing your worth. Sometimes our thirst for people’s compliment and attention pushes us to shame, making ourselves look dehydrated.

Loving, accepting and appreciating oneself isn’t bad.. it’s a great step to being able to love and appreciate people all the more. Being where I am today from where I used to before have made me become grateful and appreciate life more.. I know there are still things that needs to be sorted out soon, financial wise and technical wise but I don’t let it get to me. It sure did for some time in the past but I am already too tired of worrying that looking back at it, made me realised I missed too much on this life. 🙂

So there..

Whoever that person God meant for me, I am sure he will arrive in time. I am never pressured at the moment although there are times I caught myself thinking on things yet I am keeping the faith.

I still have a long way to go, to get there but I don’t fret. Things will come to pass, the struggles I have today will become joy in the morning.

I hope y’all are having a lovely weekend!

Cheers! ♥
