10 Happy Things Vol. 6

“And I think of my own epitaph, still to be written, and all the places I’ll wander. No longer rooted, but gold, flowing. I feel a thousand capacities spring up in me.” ??

                 -excerpt from one of my fave books, “All the Bright Places” by Jennifer Niven

  • I feel like the universe is conspiring in my favor. I’m still waiting for the confirmation of my application but I’m having my fingers crossed. I’m hopeful.
  • I found out that I don’t have to study for an exam anymore so I’m taking my extra time looking for another online job so I can save. I’m feeling motivated these days.
  • Letting go of toxic people is one of the best decisions I made. I don’t need negativity in my life. No matter how hard it is, it’s important to remind myself that some people aren’t my responsibility. If they make my life stressful or if it’s not healthy for me anymore, it’s time to let go.
  • I’m so so so excited for April! 2 important dates are happening and I couldn’t wait. I took these countdown photos days ago so as of now, it’s 12 days to go for our Cebu trip with my cousins and 33 days to go to finally meet someone who made my heart flutter each day.
  •   I’ve been caring for my skin a lot these days and purchased some skin care products. It’s hard to deal with skin   issue like eczema and KP. So far, the products are working its magic.
  • I’m thankful for my blogger friends who’s been like sisters to me. Thanks for listening and for giving me some advice. I really appreciate it. You know who you guys are 🙂
  • I’ve been saving a lot and I don’t really buy stuff but when I do, I feel guilty but then I need to remind myself that it’s okay to treat yourself once in a while. I’ve been having lots of travel plans for next month so probably, most of my savings are gonna go there. Traveling is a good investment.
  • Late night deep conversations with someone who’s soul is as deep as the ocean. He seems so familiar and the feeling between us is overwhelming. I feel loved.
  • Your item has been shipped. Best email ever! Waiting for parcels and opening them. I feel like opening a gift that I’ve given to myself. haha.
  • It’s holidays so it’s nice to spend time with family now that everyone’s home. Happy easter!

What makes you smile these days?

    What makes me happy? hmmm… the compliments from my roommate haha I love late night conversations, sometimes it’s embarrassing to remember it the next morning. I love shopping online especially on ebay. I mostly buy unnecessary things there. yes like a gift to myself haha. For me, it is hard to let go of people even though they are toxic, but I guess it will help you breathe when they’re gone

      Late night conversations is love. It’s cool that you and your roomates get along well. Omg I used to shop at ebay too cuz items are so cheap! But i have to wait for a month to get them. It is indeed hard to let go of toxic people especially they’re your friends but life is more happier. No more negativity. No more guilt.

    All is well. I hope your plans will push through, Ali.
    Sometimes, it doesn’t matter if you met that person in flesh pero what matters most is yung you feel connected and true. Thank God for internet and blogging, you get to meet awesome people who will be there for you through thick and thin.
    Oh. I want to read All the Bright Places but i’m still saving up for a hard copy. I’ve heard it’s nice talaga

      The author Jennifer Niven is coming here in the Philippines! I wish I live in Manila or Cebu 🙁 And yes Joyce, that book is worth the save. I agree, sometimes internet friends can be stronger than real life friends. *fingers crossed for all my plans to come true. 🙂
