Thank You List

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.

Happy 2012!

It’s a brand new year and yet everything still seems like a blur to me. I have mixed feelings about 2012. It must be because this is gonna be a big year for me. When I say “big,” I’m not referring to success (though it won’t hurt if I get a bit lucky and become successful this year!). I’m actually talking about the changes that are gonna happen in my life.

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.

10 Things I am Thankful for

Every day is a blessing. The moment we wake up is a blessing as it means we are still breathing and yes, very much alive. At times when I feel blue, I think of the many things that I should be thankful for. Today is a great day for me. I’m definitely not feeling blue. But somehow, I feel like thinking about a lot of things that I’m grateful for. There are so many of them so I’ll just stick with the things that I’m really very thankful for this week. Ten things.

1. a new job for my brother (he had his first day at work last Monday)
2. a new refrigerator for mom, for our Cavite home (purchased yesterday)
3. a full version of Fruit Ninja for my iPod Touch 4G (purchased last Tuesday)
3. several fun blog events that I had the pleasure of attending this week
