It’s the most wonderful time of the year

Hello everyone! I’d just like to greet everyone Merry Christmas! I wish the best for all of you and your families. We are indeed blessed for all the stuffs we got to receive this year.

For this year, I couldn’t be more thankful for having my loved ones safe and healthy. That alone is a priceless gift. Of course, I have a long long list of Christmas Wish List but I’m afraid, no one’s going Santa for me. Still, I have the child inside of me who believes in the spirit of Christmas. It’s actually great that we have this holiday every year. For me, it’s like one of the days in the whole year we hope for magic to happen. That’s what it’s like every year for me.

Anyway, that’s all I got to say now. Six days ago and 2013 will be over. Wow. Time really flies fast. I’m just getting excited for what’s in store for me in the coming years.

Once again, Merry Christmas y’all!

Things that I am thankful for this year

Again, I’m back after a long period of being MIA. Anyway, I’d like to greet everyone Happy Thanksgiving!  In essence of this occasion (even though we don’t celebrate it in our country), I’d like to talk about the things that I am very very much thankful for this year.

To start with, I think that I’m really blessed because I have my family and friends who is always here with me. If it weren’t for them, I think I’d be nothing. I’m thankful because we’re all safe and healthy. After the calamities that occurred in the other parts of our country, I realized that I should be grateful for the life and the comfort of all the things we have in life.

Another thing to be thankful for is having a regular job and part-time jobs. I must admit that life in twenties is way more complicated than I ever thought it would be. Before, I’m very dependent to the allowance that my parents gave to me. I spend it without a second thought. Now that I am earning my own money, I always get guilt feelings. Anyway, I’m happy that now, I’m giving a little share to my parents for our family budget.

Lastly, the experiences and the lessons I’ve had are the highlights. Now, I think that I am indeed learning about the “adult-life”. I’ve had my own share of mistakes that I think of now as a way of redirecting me to where I should really be. I’ve learned to stand for myself and not let anybody dictate what I should do. That’s most important lesson that I’ve learned and thankful for this year.

 

I guess that would be all for now. Enjoy your day everyone. 🙂

Daily Prompt: Practice Makes Perfect

Tell us about a talent you’d love to have… but don’t.

We all have frustrations in life. One of those is having the talents that we wish we have but unfortunately we don’t. Like the old saying said, “You can never have it all.” I’m pretty much contented with the talents that I believe I have. Though that’s the case, there are still other talents that I wish I am capable of doing. These are acting, dancing, and drawing/sketching.

I have always believed that I pretty much suck at acting. When I was still studying, I remember how I was so self-conscious when we were told to have role plays. I wish I was someone braver and more charismatic. Now, I don’t care at all. I just wish that I am good at it but not so much frustrated that I cannot do it well.

With dancing, I think I am capable of it. Capable of doing it only when required to do so. In other cases, I just dance when I’m just all by myself. Again, I’m too much self-conscious to dance with other people around. I am still actually hoping that there would be one day that I would not mind dancing with people around because I’d really like to try out workouts with dancing stuff involved.

Lastly, I think I’d love to be talented in drawing/sketching. As a child, I have drew the usual stick figures and the semi-decent human figures. That was way back then. There are times when I can pretty much do a sketch but it’s not that good. Have I ever mentioned that being an interior designer is one of my greatest frustrations in life? Yeah, probably not.

Anyway, even if I’d love to have those mentioned talents, I guess I just have to do the best with what I have. I am pretty sure that there’s a reason why we are given our own talents that is to improve ourselves and prove to ourselves that we are A-W-E-S-O-M-E even if there are some things that we wish we could do and have.

Drop the negatives.

Note to self: Whenever you are faced with a bad situation or thought, STOP, breathe in and exhale all your worries. Don’t overthink the problems, instead, appreciate things. Learn to find the good side in all things and be thankful how blessed you are. Feel free. Be with people who makes you happy, make them smile. Celebrate little things in life. Write how awesome it is to be you. Drop the negatives, and you’ll find happiness. Happiness is your choice.

Sometimes, we get frustrated.

After being able to achieve some things that I wish for myself, I need to accept the fact that it comes with great responsibility. There are much more expectations, and I find people watching what’s my next step. I guess, most of them, expect me to land a job at a blink of an eye. In times like this wherein economic instability is fairly known among us, I wish they would not put high expectations on me. I am tired of being pressured just because I have to please people.

I cannot help but get frustrated over the fact that some people have it easier. They get things easier and things are handed to them or being spoonfed to them, like they don’t even have to work about it. Maybe that was my jealousy speaking. I feel frustrated because I have to try over and over again. I have to put so much effort on things that sometimes I think maybe I’m a person who should be the lead character in The Series of Unfortunate Events but I can’t bring myself to do it because I damn know that I have a lot of other great things to be thankful about.

I guess, now, I realize, that maybe, it’s not so easy at all for all of us. We have our own problems/frustrations, whatever we call it. But on the other side, we must realize that we are still lucky that we’ve got more things to be grateful about. And that, maybe, it’s just going to be all okay at the right time and at the right place. Who knows?
