“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation” ~ Brian Tracy
It must’ve been that unplanned trip to Puerto Galera that made me think about my gratitude list which I haven’t been able to keep. Al though I have a lot of things to be thankful for, life has also been busy dealing me with cards I didn’t know how to play. After all, I’m not a gambler. I am not a risk taker. I always saw myself as someone who plays safe and someone who always have a plan B. So in case I got into a jam, I could just put jam nuts to get out of it.
These past few days, –err… months, I find myself living in the present. It made me think about being a person who doesn’t care about the past or the future but only the present.
I used to be someone who focuses on the past. I was a past positive person, someone who focuses and remembers only the good old days. But somehow, over time, I changed and become someone who seizes the day. I know I have a lot of thing s to do to balance it out more but right now, let me focus on the things that I am thankful for…
♥ peanutbutter♥ will be home in 13 days and we have a lot of traveling to do and we have a lot of making up for lost time in each other’s arm — with Ykaie, of course.
♥ Thankful that sis’s friends backed out of their trip to Puerto Galera and we got to go with her and it forced me to think and reflect upon things during my early morning alone at the beach.
♥ I’m always, always thankful for the blessings that I receive each day.
♥ Thankful that I was able to go shopping yesterday both for peanutbutter♥ and me. I bought a lot of clothes which happens once in a blue moon but which makes me a bit guilty but happy..LOL!
♥ Thankful for the good things in life that cannot be bought by money.

Being able to buy lots of clothes will make me really happy, too! Good to hear you had fun doing that! Ang peanutbutter’s coming home soon; that’s another happy thought!
