Above all of the hustle and bustle of the events and reunions, my head’s above water. I can see more clearly. The appreciation of every day is more apparent. In a twisted manner, what good came out of the same old holidays is the ability to control and slow down my thoughts and my actions. Slow and lean—these are my words for January.
Happy new year, everyone!
It’s amazing here in, Manila Philippines, where I am from that the long holidays is literally long. We are just about recovering from the holiday festivities — pre-Christmas date with good friends Clang and Millie, Noche Buena with husband’s dad’s side, Christmas day with husband’s mom’s side, post-Christmas lunch visit to my mom and uncle, a little playdate and toy shopping with cousin Ate Ira, Ate Koi and Tita Ninang Hazel the next day, post-Christmas lunch with Tito Ninong Glenn, Tita Ninang Maxine and my baby niece Leille the following day after, amongst all the other Christmas parties with workmates and friends in between. And that is just for the Christmas celebrations!
Moving on to recognizing the festivities for the new year 2019. We had Media Noche with my little family, another playdate and gift shopping with cousin Ate Ira, Ate Koi and TiNang Hazel, and a great catch-up date with our couple friends, Joseph and Shirmel. And tomorrow we visit my bestie Jaja, Jorge, Iñigo and our newest baby Sachi!
Life is good!
Despite the roller coaster of emotions I’ve felt, not so good moments and situations I have experienced, I am humbled to recognized that I AM GRATEFUL for all these details in my life. For all these precious people in our lives. For all these precious life experiences.
