Ten Reasons to Be Happy

I’ll be honest, today is not a good day. My PMS is making me act all bitchy, the foundation I initially thought was good is failing me, and I just found out I have a lot of work to catch up on. I think today would be a good day to stop worrying and give myself ten reasons why I should be happy instead.

  1. I’m getting married to the love of my life. I had to put this up on my list because as much as I am happy to be getting married, the whole event is not something I look forward to. I really want something more intimate but what we are having now is the complete opposite. It’s not anybody’s fault. I want to make him happy but I’m slowly realizing it’s at the expense of my happiness.
  2. I have the best fiancee ever. I am a ruthless bitch sometimes. I like making issues big but thankfully my fiancee is the best and he doesn’t even care that I do that. I promise to change or at least control my emotions soon.
  3. I got my Big Bang lightstick working again! The batteries died out years ago but I finally got new ones and my baby is working again. It looks majestic with all the other Big Bang goodies I have.
  4. My brother is back from the UK. I am so happy I don’t need to drive all the time. I get very anxious when I am driving so having him here helps.
  5. I know how to let go of unnecessary baggage. I never knew I had issues being a middle child. I am so used to being independent that nothing really bothers me BUT a certain someone mentioned something to me and it really disturbed me. It has gotten to a point where I got a little crazy. Good thing a talk with myself calmed me down and settled everything.
  6. My blog is getting more comments lately. I really like it when my readers comment on the things I post. I really enjoy commenting back and continuing the discussion on the comments section. I posted two posts (Why I fell out of love with social media / Why I have a love/hate relationships with influencers) that I think really provoked the masses. It got pretty good responses and if you haven’t given your two cents, please do so.
  7. My Althea package just arrived and I got my 1+1 Iope Cushion. Oh Yeah. I really love this cushion but I didn’t repurchase after finishing it. Let’s see if my memory serves me right and if it still deserves a thumbs up.
  8. I got a million ideas for my blog. Since August is my birth month, I really want to do a 31-day blogging challenge by then. I also want to do a giveaway or something. I’m not sure but I have all these ideas in my head that I hope will come true.
  9. I get to eat more of what I want! As you all know I am on a weight loss journey. I still have a lot more pounds to lose BUT I am more comfortable with my eating and exercise habits that I can afford not to skip out on my favorite foods anymore. I can always go for that extra spoon of rice unlike before where I really had to starve myself. 🙂
  10. I am alive and I am blessed. This list doesn’t even begin to cover all of the things I should be happy about. Just the fact that I can even blog instead of doing something else is something to be happy about. I might not be feeling 100% today but I am alive and that’s enough reason to change the way I think.

What are you happy about today?


  1. #8 – SAME. Maybe about a gazillion ideas on my end. Hahahaha. And I just purchased from Althea. Hopefully it arrives soon! Also, aren’t we all a little bitchy sometimes? Thank god for partners who see through the crap that we pull. :p

    • I want these ideas to come to life that’s why I’m preparing waaay in advance. I sometimes have the habit of not finishing what I started. It sucks! (Also read that you’re not going to finish your 30-day challenge. I enjoyed reading your writing! 😦 )

      Oooh, I love Althea. I honestly want to be their brand ambassador, kahit free. Hahahaha. I love that we both have partners who support and understand us. 🙂

      • Hahaha. I decided to bring back the 30 day thing. I just didn’t want to leave it hanging there. I can’t tell if I can make it through the end, though. Lol

        Yes yes, me too!! I really love Althea. Can’t wait to get my package. Sana dumating na. Haha

  3. Congrats on getting married soon!! The big day I heard can be really stressful along with all the planning but in the end I’m sure it will be amazing. I think the thing I would care about most is making sure to get a good photographer. So at least if my wedding ended up being a mess it doesn’t have to look like it years later haha What is the venue to the wedding? Or if you haven’t planned it yet what would you want it to be?

    #5 I completely get it. It’s crazy how something someone says can seem so minor but can just “trigger” you. And you get this emotional reaction that doesn’t necessarily seem to be based off of logic. I had this one friend who used to say things that just made me really mad for seemingly no reason and then I realized that he was condescending in the same way my mum is (which was really weird). Since I used to get into fights with my mum a lot what he said just made me so immediately annoyed/angry. The hardest part was recognizing why I got so mad haha

    • The venue will be an events place. It’s really nice – high ceilings, a staircase, and it’s really green. The funny things is, I think I’m getting stressed not because of planning the wedding but because of the wedding itself. It’s probably the introvert in me. 😛

      Do you still get annoyed with that friend after realizing that? Now that I’ve come to realize why that someone ‘triggered’ me I can’t hold a normal conversation with him. LOL, we as humans are so complicated emotionally!


    • Sabi ko na nga ba tayong mga August babies magaganda, lol. Wala pa ako ideas paano isulat yun, pag nagka-idea na ako, promise 🙂
