Bittersweet November - Just like a box of assorted chocolates
On my so-called secret blog, I wrote an entry about the heartaches the month of November gave me on the first week. Let’s just say that things didn’t go my way. Expectations and goals were not met. I even ranted that November has always been a bad month for me.
But I was wrong.
This month is about to end, but before I say hello to December, I would like to share some of my realizations made in the past few weeks….
‘THANK YOU’. Two simple words yet the impact is very strong. MARAMING SALAMAT. Dalawang simpleng salita na napakahalaga sa bawat isa sa atin. Don’t you just feel good whenever someone sends his/her gratitude whenever you do something to make a person’s life easier or to make them happy?
As I write this entry, I have a lot of things to be thankful for: My family in England is doing well, my career is on track, my friends and I surpassed some challenges yet we managed to stick to each other, my plans are turning into something big and many, many more! Indeed, life is really a box of chocolates – it might be bitter or sweet, but it’s quite addicting. I am really thankful for everything!
Though I am not really ‘showy’ to my real feelings, I see to it that i say ‘Thank You’ to my family, friends or co-workers whenever they make me happy. Some of these moments are best captured by a camera.
In line with the National Thank You Day (October 20), I am now conducting a contest here in my blog together with Toblerone. The contest is simply called ‘ The Sweetness of Gratitude Photo Contest’ and I want you guys to join!
So what do you have to do?
After eating dinner with the usual Plurkfiesta suspects at Glorietta and eating Maki in Trinoma, Jehz and I went straight to Grand Terrace, Commonwealth for the Elation Buffet Launch. We arrived at around 11pm and we were a bit surprised with what we saw (in a good way, of course!). Benj was kind enough to warn us about the crowd (the party place was dominated by youngsters – alam niyo na yun LOL).
Thank God we saw familiar faces like Hannah, Shari, Coy, Fritz, Robby, Gwen, Tiffy, Helga and Jeff.
I went straight to the Chocolate Fondue then some bloggers invited me on the dance floor 😀
