The Silver Lining

I’ve been through quite a lot of crap recently. And, I confess, feeling uninspired and tired may have gotten the best of me these past few days. I can’t tell if it’s the cliche “mid-life crisis” shiz that’s trying to eat me up, but I can only confirm that, yes, as weird as it may sound, I kind of feel unsatisfied. Maybe it’s because it’s that time of the month or maybe because I find the future a little blurry, it’s starting to scare me.

Nevertheless, I have decided to just stop thinking. I know negative thoughts lead you to acting negatively and acting negatively leads to, well obviously negative things and negative situations. Although I love playing drama queen to get “lambings” {hihihi} from my boyfriend, I do hate drama in general. On that note, again, I just want to let go of all frustrating thoughts. It ain’t going to be easy, but for sure it’ll be something I’ll thank myself for, someday.

To start the good vibes flowing, despite the shitload of problems that came my way, I feel really happy to be blessed with an amazing boyfriend, a super caring mom and true friends that make life so much better! :) It may sound like a complete joke, but I really do thank God for the crappy things, because everyday they remind you that awesome ones exist.

In addition, I just got a peak into the results of my Abe’s Philippine Duathlon Series race, and I’m overjoyed to find out he ranked 17 in his age group!!!! I’m a super happy, super proud and super in love girlfriend!! :) :) :)

In terms of work, I feel really blessed to have Gab as one of my colleagues. Aside from always being there in good times and in bad times, she also always showers me with her blessings!! Super generous baby sister!

After her shoot for the pretty Snoe Beauty Inc. products, she gave me a lipstick and a lip and cheek tint to add to my humble collection. Hahaha! I love it that Snoe’s lipstick is long lasting and it’s such a bonus that they have really adorable packaging.

Moreover, I also got pretty lucky when I covered the Indoor Duathlon at Fitness and Athletics yesterday – I won awesome Yurbuds earphones!!!!!!! :) #incrediblyhappykid

I’ve been eyeing on buying new earphones ever since, and it was really a treat that I got it already – libre na, sosyal pa! Hahahaha! Many, many thanks to Yurbuds and to Bike King, the organizers of the said race. :)

In conclusion, God is definitely good, as in always. He never fails to make me feel blessed and He always finds a way to pump me up and make me see the silver lining in all things difficult in this world.

I am forever humbled, and grateful. :)

Anyway, in a totally unrelated topic, I’d like to share what I wore for work today. I was going for a “photographer” kind of look, but I think I ended up looking like a rock star. Oh well, I think at some point in my life, I did dream of becoming the princess of rock and roll! Hahaha!
