I noticed that my blog posts are a bit bleak this month. It’s not that nothing’s been going on that’s worthy of a blog post, it’s just that there are a lot of them that I just can’t decide which to blog about. So anyway, I gave time to myself to sit back and think of all the things that happened, and I made a list of the things that I am thankful for.
Friends come and go. Friendship is a very touching issue, and as much as I don’t want to talk about the kind of friendships that I’ve had over the years, I want to at least talk about how blessed I feel for all of them, both good and bad. I’ve learned lessons through these experiences – I learned who and when to trust. And I made a promise to myself to fill my life with people who are true to themselves. They are always worthy of friendship.
Normal is overrated. What does it mean to be normal? How does one live a normal life? Dealing with MG can be tough, and you’d need a lot of patience and the strength to accept your limitations. But God has been so good, for a normal life for me is a life that is full of surprises, blessings and grace. Who would have thought that I could somehow still party despite my condition? I was able to meet with old friends, be with friends on a simple escapade, and enjoy life’s simple joys. Eating good food at a discounted price is always a life’s simple but impacting joy. 🙂
With family, you always have someone to go back to. It has been so long since the last time I spent time with my cousins, who also happened to be my childhood friends. I am just so glad that I finally found the time to be with them once again. And though I wasn’t able to take pictures of us, I promise that in the near future I would to post in here our before and after pics.
It’s just a short list, but these are such great things that I just can’t let the opportunity to be thankful pass me by. Now, as I welcome November and something not-so-good happens, there is something that I could look back to and tell myself, “There’s no reason not to be okay.”
