365 days ago, I started drafting this post where I take one photo or media each day and say something about how my day went on with it. I know that this will be worth reading on the eve of January 1st, 2019. 52 weeks, 12 months and endless uncertainties, shocks and surprises surely await!
FEBRUARY as how the world defines it is a month of love. This 2018, it will be the beginning of my quietness and trust. #faithfulGod #Hiswillbedone #rest #healing #questions #confusions
DAY 59 – TORN : At the start of the work-hour, I had a little bit of confusion and challenge as I was torn between doing something right and some that is less right. In fact, I was not able to determine which is which. But in the midst of it all, things boiled down to me, questioning myself, when will I ever learn to be rude and selfish just to spare myself from lots of responsibilities? This is, perhaps, a thought that I must keep on asking myself from this moment on. So, that’s how we conclude this month then!
DAY 58 – WORKERS: For some reason, I just find it necessary to read on the entirety of this thing since I haven’t done it yet after being in government service for three years. Yes, it’s already been three years.
DAY 57 – SISTERS: It is through thick and thin that my mom and her sisters always have each other. I have witnessed how the five of them were sticking through each other in distressing moments like this, being ill. However, I kinda had a hard time processing their Birth Certificates because of how disorganized the recordings were.
DAY 56 – GADGETS: As early as three years old, kids today can easily have access to gadgets and what the technology can do. As this forms part of the evolution and revolution, a greater challenge awaits to the parents of this generation. While I was doing my weekly #Coursera class, this girl was also doing her daily #YouTube session.
DAY 55 – RECOVERED: I finally found a precious piece of an old stuff. This watermelon frost that I bought years ago might no longer be available in town until further notice. Thank God I found it.
DAY 54 – EYES: Those eyes cannot lie though her tongue did. Those eyes saw the truth and her inner self is waiting for her to accept such truth in the most GRACEful way. Those eyes acknowledges the fact that this memory will stay for a lifetime. Those eyes…
DAY 53 – BARRED: This message probably stirred up quite a number of complaints from people who found convenience between PayPal and GCash usage. We all hope that everything will go back to normal soon.
DAY 52 – EARS: While I am becoming hooked with the “Once Upon a Time” series, this little kiddo happened to be interested on what I was watching. Unfortunately, the series came with so much twist about the common fairy tales that we watched and this photo showed how a little girl would not want to watch or listen to it. She fell asleep behind me, covering her ears while I was watching the movie.
DAY 51 – MIRROR: In front of the mirror is where I always see myself as I am, inside and out. But those eyes, they are from a confused person’s eyes.
DAY 50 – SOFT: Last Saturday’s visit at the dentist was a bit successful except that the brace adjustment must be done in a different way. The continuous band that was attached on my upper teeth braces is causing teeth sensitivity. No pain, no gain.
DAY 49 – FLESH: There is so much that I want to do today but I only ended up staying at home and feeling lazy in a Sunday.
DAY 48 – DENTIST: That moment when there are twice or thrice more patients than the doctors. I was queueing for a dental update and I am hoping that it was worth the wait. I was expecting for a tooth extraction today but I thought of just having it on another day. It will be pink rubber for the month.
DAY 47 – CHINESE DRAGONS: My niece and nephew surely had a fun time at the playhouse today. This video can tell us how and why but later on, we had a trouble managing the tantrums of Greyson as she demanded a PhP2000 worth of toy. I was ready to purchase a toy for her but not that expensive. Well, since it’s Chinese New Year, a dragon dance nearby caught her attention but she got scared of them so she asked all of us to hurriedly go home. And that’s what we call, Saved by the Dragons. Haha…
DAY 46 – KR + KC: Brothers Kalel Cloud and the newborn Kyle Rain paid a visit to the office today. I hope Kaleli will enjoy the gift I gave him while I was wishing that I was able to have a comfortable time in my arms. He really looks a liked shrunk version of the eldest, Kirck John a.k.a. KJ.
DAY 45 – BIRTH CERTS: I was supposed to order authenticated copies of my aunt and mom’s birth certificates today but my mood went down so bad after learning the inconsistencies on the information that I have on hand. Better luck next time.
DAY 44 – CHILLIS! : This “Kwek-Kwek” (Boiled egg, covered with thin, orange dough) while paired up with that seaweed and sliced cucumber made me full for the afternoon, except that those chillis there made the eating process more challenging.
DAY 43 – BRITTLES: Peanut brittle in the middle of the Monday meeting is indeed an icebreaker. This came all the way from Baguio City.
DAY 42 – HEARTS SUNDAY: I attended church with my parents today and this became the highlight of the day. Let’s just enjoy watching this. 🙂
DAY 41 – BANANAS AND BACON: These food are kinda the healthy ones that I took in for the day. As written, that brown thing was a tuna in strips. It looks weird but it tastes great. The green banana was a bit hard to chew but I finished one piece while the yellow banana with powdered milk was nostalgic as it reminded me of my childhood when my older cousins and I eat frozen ones like these.
DAY 40 – New Set: Though these article works were assigned to me by the same client, the content has changed into something like a “definition of terms” things and marketing the content all at the same time. At first try, I thought it was easy but when the list went longer from one site to another, I found it tideous and it made me think if I should demand for a higher pay. If I will, I will run the risk of losing this account.
DAY 39 – THE KEY: There are many ways that God talks to His people but the most audible of them all is through the lips of friends who sincerely cares. Tonight, I had a long chat with this lady. That’s the moment when the Lord has spoken to me that I have the key to free me from the bond of the past. It’s just that, I am stubborn enough on not using it. Nonetheless, it’s only by His grace that I can surpass these all.
DAY 38 – HERBAL: I went back to work today, in the afternoon. I thank God for the renewed strength and for the wisdom of our supervisor who helped me purchase this medicine. She said that I must take 6 tablets every after meal until I will feel better. May the good Lord grant me mercy and continuous healing.
DAY 37 – OVERSLEEPING: February is indeed a month of rest for me. When illness struck yesterday, I found entire body in pain, especially my tonsils. My head was so painful, I’ve been having chills since last night until this afternoon. My boss told me that I must be dehydrated so I took plenty of water. Thank God for the long sleep today which resulted in these overslept eyes.
DAY 36 – BROTHER: I took an unplanned leave today since I cannot stand to miss this special moment with my family as we celebrated my brother’s 34th natal day. The jellyfish stung me bad but nonetheless, I had fun. Behind all these photos are the moments of meaningful chitchats with family and relatives where we learn to truly relate from each others’ burden.
DAY 35 – DOMWORKS: Learning from the lives of the people that we often ignore is essential to one’s maturity. As the agency assisted the domestic workers (DOMWORKS) of the region in celebrating their day, I appreciated the life that these people are treading where somehow, they are living their lives’ purpose in the lives of their bosses. My salute to the hardworking, dedicated and honest Kasambahays.
DAY 34 – BLESSINGS: This afternoon, I traveled all the way from north to the south to attend a momentous event of a friend’s business place blessing. I had a long chat with this couple and may the good Lord prosper this business.
DAY 33 – RESULT: Of course, this is confidential but I just want to share how my day went with this result. First, I realized how I have been living an average life because of this all-average result. Secondly, I had a little bit of confusion on how to take the concluding statements of the result. And lastly, I am leaving this all up to Jesus.
DAY 32 – REST: I got this photo from my gallery and this was taken by my niece Greyson. This time, she did it right and this is now reminding me that what I need for the days to come is SLEEP, enough of it. I had a glimpse of my palm this morning and it looked so pale, which means that I probably have a low hemoglobin level.
