Living a simple life has its perks. You become more appreciative of your life. You become thankful even for the littlest blessing. When you are living simply, and uncomplicated at that, things get better and brighter and more fun. I can totally relate!
Last week, I started to list down the things that make me happy or thankful. Let’s call it my Thank You list. Writing on it doesn’t have to be everyday. What I do is I write only when I have something to write (common sense). Haha.

Don’t you wish all your days are well-spent? If that is the case, then maybe there are more reasons to be happy about. A well-spent day for me is one where I am not only productive but also doing meaningful things for myself and for the people I love. Or just a plain day spent doing crazy things with the people dearest to me.
Busy or not, the day should be well-spent in such a way that the overall experience becomes so enriching and unforgettable at the same time. Unfortunately, it’s not every day that we get to experience a well-spent day. There are days that are forgettable and there are days that are regrettable. When our attitude becomes sour or goes downhill, or the circumstances surrounding our day become uncontrollable or go for the worse, we are left with very limited options to make our day right.

So it seems I can now go out and have fun. Or so I’ve been told by the hubby. We’re meeting up with a friend tomorrow night and I’m taking advantage of this opportunity to unwind even just for a few hours.
You see, I’ve been stuck at home recovering from a surgery for weeks now. I’ve been raring to go out already. When I had a follow-up check up with the doctor last Monday, I specifically asked when I could go out or travel. She said I can already do so but have to be careful with my movements. Cool.

We’ve been literally swamped with work in the office over the past few days and I bet it will continue until next week. Or maybe until the end of the month. If I’m not mistaken, this is our busiest January in the office so far.
My desk is full of paperwork right now that need to be either submitted or sent to proper authorities. I seriously think I need some desk name plates because I doubt if my friends would still recognize me from afar, what with all these paper mess that surround me.

Last week was quite busy. I’d like to think I did a lot of work (both in the office and at the restaurant) and enjoyed every minute of it. It was only during the weekend that I got to relax. Life is still good.
Here are 10 random things that made me grateful last week:
1. A job interview
2. The fiancee’s mom’s 63rd birthday
3. New accessories
4. Home-serviced massage for mom
5. Done with a monthly task at work
6. Watched two more episodes of QSD (32 episodes left, haha)
7. Inspection and turn-over of keys for the fiancee’s house
8. Finished my third IPL session
9. Slept for eight long hours on Saturday night
10. Malling on Sunday with family

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.
