Serenity is defined as “the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.” I feel that this year, that’s the very thing I want for myself. I have always been a peace-loving person but recently I have realized that in life, you can never have a serene life at all times. There will always be challenges, trials, and ordeals that can take away your happiness or the good state you’re in. Life is full of surprises, after all.
I, for instance, wasn’t spared from life’s many surprises. Something unimaginable happened to our family early this month and until now, I still couldn’t accept how I’m now obligated to face this new reality. This is not my doing, mind you, but somehow, I got affected and couldn’t do anything about it. I had no choice but to live with it. Weird, right? Things might change in the future, but for now, this is it.

“Gratitude is the best attitude.” ~from an unknown author
Last year, my personal theme was Health + Wealth. I didn’t accomplish much in the health department but I’m glad to have made some considerable progress in the wealth area. Given that, I’m sad and happy at the same time.

I’m quite sad because instead of achieving my target weight, I even gained unwanted pounds. 12 freaking pounds, to be exact. From 128 to 140! Yes, seriously! That’s how big I got. I brisk walked and biked but these didn’t become a regular thing so the effect was nowhere to be seen. I also ate a looooooot and it was the reason of the dramatic weight gain. Now, I’m so faaaaaaaat and I can’t do anything about it. Yet. I’m slowly trying to eat less and healthy again and hopefully, along with exercise, I’d lose some weight. No pressure, Edel. Take your sweet time.

Last night before going to bed, I realized that goals don’t have to be big for me to work on achieving them. I could always start with small goals. For instance, instead of losing 10 lbs. a month, I could work to lose 2 lbs. in one weekend. See what I mean?
I also noticed that my big goals are too many to count. I think it would be best to limit them to say, 5 per year? I dunno yet, but I’m sure it can be done. My life is already complicated, what with the many things I want to do with limited time and resources. What more if I’m worrying about several big goals that are hard to achieve at the same time? See my point?

So far, so good. If you’d ask me how’s my life been going these days, that will be my exact answer. I am just happy that blessings continue to come way and that less problems are popping up in my life.
I have a job that pays well. It may not be so secure, but at least it never fails to teach me to be appreciative of each day in the workplace. There may be other similar jobs out there that pay more, but the satisfaction I get from my job wouldn’t compare with any of them. I just want a fulfilling but stress-free job and the job I have right now definitely fits the bill.

Tomorrow is gonna be a busy day for the fiancee. He’s scheduled to conduct a thorough inspection of his new house in Bacoor, Cavite. To show my support, I’m going with him. His family is coming with us, too.
I’m just so happy about the developments in my fiance’s life. One by one, his dreams are coming true. First was the car and now, the house. I wonder what will be next on the list. Haha. Seriously, he’s one hardworking guy and I think he deserves all the blessings coming his way.
