God Wants You to be Happy!

I have always believed that happiness is a choice. No matter how miserable you think you are, you can still choose to be happy. No matter how bad the situation may be, you can always choose to react differently and take things lightly.

The past months, I have observed how God tested my faith. I wished for a lot of things but only gained a handful. Or so I thought. Recently, I have been amazed by the little blessings coming my way. I didn’t recognize them at first. But eventually I realized they were indeed blessings showered upon me by the good and gracious one above.

#001: 10 Things to Be Thankful for Last Week

With the busy life that I lead, I know I tend to forget appreciating the blessings coming my way. I also tend to forget thanking the one above for each and every little grace I receive. Okay, I guess I’m starting to feel guilty now. To appease my inner (and kinder) self, I have decided to blog about the 10 things I should be thankful for last week. Yes, last week and not this week because it isn’t over yet. Last week as the time period to be considered is safer because I can definitely enumerate the things that made me happy in that week, though it’s gonna be in no particular order.

I hope this becomes a weekly thing for this blog. Just like what I’ve been seeing in some other blogs I’ve been blog hopping on. I won’t promise though lest I fail myself. Without further a do, here they are:

New Look for Summer

There’s no denying summer is here. Last night was very humid I had to turn on the fan so I could sleep. I guess I will have to do that every night for the rest of this season to feel comfortable in my slumber. Given that, I should expect my electric bill to balloon a little in the next two months. But that’s okay so long as I don’t perspire like crazy.

my new ‘do without the color and the highlights

Last Friday, I finally got a new hair ‘do. It was a short pixie cut that looked good on me (according to almost everyone, haha). To complete the new look that was very summer-y, I had my hair dyed and got some highlights at the same salon the next day. I have never looked this young and chic and cool. Just what a nice hair cut can do to a face. And to think I only spent a little over P600 for it!

Different Meanings of a Sigh

I have been sighing a lot the past days and with that frequency, the sighs meant different things. After my work at the restaurant the other night, my body felt really tired and so I let out a sigh of exhaustion. When I had finished a report I was working on in the office for days, I sighed in relief. When I got very interested in a restaurant deal being sold over at Deal Grocer (one of the more popular groupon sites in Manila) and found out it was sold-out already after checking out the site, I felt the need to let out a sigh of sorrow. Not really sorrow but sadness in its shallow form.

This one tops it all off. When my brother D confessed to me that he’s not happy with his job anymore and wanted to quit, I sighed in disbelief (and with a bit of disappointment) because he was being reckless with his decisions again. He said he’d just concentrate on the board exams (he’s taking the LET). I tried to give him my sisterly advice but he seemed too determined to push thru his plan. But I guess he realized I had a point so he said a moment after he’d just wait for his contract to finish. That’s roughly three weeks from now.
