Hello! How’s your day/week so far? ๐Ÿ˜Š

No matter what it went, give yourself a pat on the back and say “You’re trying, you’re here, you will be okay.”

Inhale, Exhale.

How does it feel?

I’m done reassuring myself.. wow. *smile*

Undeniably GOOD.. while I did it at this present moment(blogging), At the cross instrumental song is playing on my background, I’m sitting on my comfy chair and I’m alone in my room, and that’s a peaceful reassurance to myself.

Try it too. It’s okay.. A simple pamper/treat to yourself will do.

I’m not expert here on self-love because tbh I’m trying every single day to love myself, to fuel my love tank in full so that I can spread love to all the people around me. It’s hard but keep trying..

There are a lot of negative and heartbreaking news whether in real world or on the world wide web, well, be in the % of the community that shrugs those crap and continue to do your thing.

I choose to be productive today and I did it 60/100%. I will be fine. Tomorrow is another day again to try updating my adventure journal, watched FRIENDS + BTS VLIVE New Year Ep, and review for PTE.

Hmm.. feb 14 tomorrow..

As much as I don’t want to go out of my cave tomorrow….(cause of the valentine’s thing.. that in my principle, every day is “love day”) the universe is calling me to attend my orientation for work!! (Yesterday night while praying the rosary I prayed for an update and guidance with my new job.. so this morning, the HR texted me! Thank You God! ~ also I prayed for healing to my household.. and this day, my brother asked me if he should forgive our dad.. im shook I don’t know if I said the right words for him to forgive our dad but I pray that with God nothing is really impossible!!!!)

Extra sharing to my simple joys today.. Sis Mia added me and Sis Alex accepted my friend request on Facebook (I admire them for being so radiant and a dedicated mom too ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ); and I got an urgent job offer tomorrow but I refused to grab it because I love myself and my family!!!!

Tomorrow’s plan after work.. I will eat out with my dad, while me and my brother will go to church *hoping*

Goodnight, friends!! Happy Hearts Day!

Thank you so much for reading my blogs!

Always be grateful ๐ŸŒท

Love,

Ola Monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately, my laptop needed to be at Asus service center back again after just 3 weeks? HUHU. I don’t know if its battery or motherboard this time?? But it shuts off most of the time if not connected to its adaptor. I have to let go of it for now and hoping that after this, it will be as brand new as ever. Thanks papa for accompanying me in Gilmore!! And another simple joys was I am free from Uber’s P100 credit and I didn’t payyyyy ๐Ÿ˜‚

In the afternoon, I finished my day 5 of manual driving lessons with Sir Greg! It’s my last day and I’m a bit dismayed because my instructor today was far better than Sir J*j*! I gave him a tip from being kind and strict to me. He talk and teach while I drive, a very good method for me to feel at ease and not to panic!! Thanks, Sir Greg! Starting today, I need to wait for a week to claim my certificate from Dynamic Driving school.

At around 6pm, Darwi, Janine and I went to Maginhawa! Yeyyy! Foodtrip and catch-up date after 22 months of not seeing each other! I’m thankful for our low-key friendship that never changed. We ate at Caution Hot: Spicy noodle house where I just ordered their classic beef egg noodles without thrill of chili!!! (Awesome and weirdest self huhu I can’t tolerate eating spicy foods huuuuhuuuu). After there, we chill at frosted desserts. We’re just so crazy together, full of laughter and quirks. Haaay, perfect simple breather for the week. Hehe, lastly, before I went to bed, my creative impulse kicked in and I tried to make a short vlog from our Maginhawa date so here’s the link:

Short Vlog: 2nd Maginhawa date after 22 mos!

~ I’m a vlogger wannabe (using my cellphone hihi coz why nut chocnut just make the most of what you have) so here’s my simple attempt. Hope you will like it! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Always be grateful! ๐ŸŒท

Happy 1st Sunday of February! ๐Ÿ™‚

Firstly, I’m grateful to start it off by praising and serving God. It was a superb start even though I’m enduring my pain on my left foot due to my ingrown (huhu). Also, Thank God I was able to survive my two hours on the road driving around. I didn’t panic but still far from perfect. Hehe. Last day tomorrow by the way and I don’t know what to feel.

Secondly, from today’s editorial, I got extra happy because Karla and I were on the snaps space (yep, first time since the nth long years). People may not appreciate it but I would treasure that simple moment, we were both smiling while listening at the Feast. We were just happy being in that moment. Thank you!!! Actually, I saved that editorial in my bag already but I forgot that I gave my own copy to Karla’s brother, so I don’t have mine now to pile in my folder.. maybe there will be next time (more).

Thirdly, the talk after mass was about bridging the gap from parents to their children. Bro. Mon showed past to presentย boy band pictures (from the Beatles, Menudo, Backstreet boys, B T S <yyyyeeeeyyyyy hypeee woooohh for real yepppp>,ย  and XP? Battalion). Parents must dive in to their children’s connection to make a stronger connection and bond in to their world. They need to observe their children’s passion to be able for them to nurture those skills. Parent’s MUST make time for their children. HUHU cries all I’m thinking about was my brother and my dad. Their Pride should DIEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Them being Right should DIEEEEEEEEEE!!! Their EGO should DIEEEE!!!!! I don’t know how long will it take for them to just forgive and love each other’s back.. I don’t want them to regret and resent long.. I’m sincerely praying everyday for healing in my household..

Lastly, I’m happy to serve my Awesome Kids Ministry during the 3rd session. My regular students missed their teacher Joy ๐Ÿ™‚ There were many kids to handle, a bit challenging to be honest but I gotta love them and learn from them. Hehe. I want to share too that we had our light group bonding at KFC after the Feast session, and we shared our different experiences in lined with the talk last Sunday, also we’ve made plans for our quarterly outreach program at the Feast orphanages, and monthly activities for the kids. YEY! ๐Ÿ™‚

Another week to practice being grateful! Have a blessed week to everyone!

Goodnight! ๐Ÿ™‚

1st Sunday of November reflections ~ 

Stunning sunset this Sunday : Ip6xHujiapp


Everyday Iโ€™m feeling guilty of not doing practice tests and essays, and speaking English. I have so many lackings/backlogs in terms of my progress on studying IELTS. My fault. My choices. I had chose to focus my time with my family because they were more precious now than ever. 

Iโ€™m not watching any k-drama related anymore. But, Iโ€™m still into k-pop, most esp. listening to BTS and bobbalgan on Spotify. Iโ€™m continuing my passion rolling btw, blogging and journaling.  Guess, Iโ€™m still so distracted ? Ugh social media. 

I didnโ€™t booked yet for my IELTS exam date. Iโ€™m on a vacation mode right now until 19th. I will not be in a hurry, itโ€™s better to book when Iโ€™m truly ready to go for it. 

Todayโ€™s simple joys:

  • Celebrated mass with mom and dad. Father (I forgot his name) had blessed them as they were November birthday celebrants hihi
  • Happy lunch at Shakeyโ€™s 
  • Mama bought our new turbo
  • Kuya treated me strawberry lemonade
  • Beautiful sunset
  • Invited my brother and friends on Grand feast at MOA arena this coming November 26. Itโ€™s my first time!! Thank God my brother will come with me. Thanks to her girlfriend, kam, too for buying the tickets for us!!
  • Ate got our new matchy-matchy cellphones. Super thanks for her incentives from FlyNas!! 
  • Prayed the rosary with mama. Prayers and faith really works!!! 
  • Registered to a free seminar about stock market at Col Financial on Tuesday. This is it. 

Goodnight, universe!
Always be grateful ๐ŸŒท
