Blessings are life's equalizers.
Before I proceed to the main purpose of this entry (clue: read the title), I just like to share with you this very mixed-up day. As much as I am motivated to study, which means reading a LOT, I couldn't because I am sick. No matter how I try to brush off the ill feeling, the cold, cough, headache and fever just interfered with my focus, comprehension and analysis. I drank the required meds (of course, because mom's a doc) and slept or should I say overslept my way through it. Unfortunately, nothing changed when I woke up. So here's to me, hoping to get better - the soonest time possible.
Despite the sickness, God is still good (I know for sure). Certain things transpired these couple of days and I was inspired to jot them down in a blessing list of the week.
Since I encountered my failure earlier this year, I've been feeling down almost every time - especially before I go to sleep. You know the feeling... when you've had your shortcomings and you tell yourself you've forgiven yourself and all you wanted was move on, but no matter how much you attempt to do so, after every waking day that you'd feel happiness and God's blessings, you still couldn't figure out why it keeps you so sad, down and teary-eyed deep in the night.
I've been almost always feeling that way and so, I wanted to do myself a favor and just smile and count the simple joys in life that made me smile.
1) My best-est friend Micah came for a visit yesterday morning. It was just so uplifting to talk to the ONLY person whom I could pour my heart out to.
2) JK the closest girl to me in school dropped by my house in the afternoon. We had a lot of catching up and our feel-good and comforting conversations made up for all the physical illness I've been dealing with.
3) Lee of Spunk and Glam sent me a text message telling me she bought me accessories and will send them to me for free! Wow. It's more than winning a giveaway. Never did I imagine that someone that I just met in the blogging community would do that. I find it very thoughtful. I was like... AAAWW.
4) I received my very first (and second) blog awards! Honestly (please don't kill me for this), when I was new in blogging, I thought that passing something like this is really corny. But after understanding the ways of the blogging world, being rewarded even just by as simple as this reinforces the fact that someone out there really appreciates you.
Thank you very much to Shatirah of D-Station from Malaysia and Susuana of Susuana Love from London for giving me the following: Versatile Blogger Award (c/o Shatirah) and Sunshine Award (c/o Susuana).
Mababaw lang ang kaligayahan ko (little things make me happy) and I hope the people whom I'll forward this award/s to will feel the same way! To make it more personal, I made my own badge award hihi. I'm giving these awards to: (Claim your awards ladies!)
