Life Wasn’t So Bad After All

After going through so many ups and downs last February, I realized that life wasn’t so bad after all. Time indeed flies so fast. The first quarter of 2017 will soon be over. I want to rest from more hardships this month; so, I told myself that I’m going to stop overthinking and my negative thoughts.

Here are the happy things that happened last month:

After some time, my family finally had lunch out together

My dad cannot afford to walk all day as he gets tired so easily. Aside from that, he falls asleep at any given time so it’s really difficult to make a plan. That’s why my family prefers to have our food delivered in our condo than go out & dine at a restaurant.

I set a lunch date with the day after my dad’s trip to the hospital. Thankfully, our lunch out happened!

I moved to a new, and better place

My dilemma the past few weeks was I wanted to move out of my earlier apartment because I felt unsafe in the neighborhood, but I wanted to save my money on rent as well.

I just moved to a new apartment last week, right before our trip to Cebu. I have only been sleeping there for 3 nights, and so far so good! There’s a 24-hour store at the front, restaurant and food stalls below our unit, we have our own bathroom, the room is more spacious, lastly, it feels safer. 

Cebu trip with my high school friends

My high school friends and I had our most awaited trip to Cebu. I know I have talked about this in my earlier posts.

I enjoyed the entire trip despite not having enough sleep. We always had to wake up at 3 AM, and we faced several adventurous activities.

Obviously, my posts for the upcoming weeks are about this Cebu trip, so wait for it!

Valentine’s day celebration

Last Valentine’s day, we had a double date with my boyfriend’s parents. I find it cute that his parents are still sweet to each other. I gave my boyfriend a turtle stuffed toy, and he gave me a pig stuffed toy.

I’m not really a fan of celebrating the day itself, but I enjoy seeing people showing their love to others on that day.

Answered questions and removed the doubts I have

I wish I could share it with you now, but I am still waiting for the results so I’m going to keep the details for now.

It was November last year when I first received a call from this organization. I always doubted it, but I wanted to believe it at the same time. Last January, I took a leap of faith and said, “why not?”.

I doubted it because I have to pay a huge amount of money. After some careful consideration, after talking to my parents and to different people, I am convinced.

However, being a paranoid one, I started to overthink and doubt again. I felt bad because I already started paying it. So, I sent an email to the person involved, the one who is collaborating with this organization, and guess what? He explained everything to me and confirmed everything! Yay!

I listened and had my self checked by the doctor

Two weeks ago, I’m not really feeling well. I always think that it would go away after a week, but my boyfriend told me that I should have gone to the doctor if I’m still sick for 3 days. The problem here is it was going on and off – I thought I just needed to rest.

Eventually, I listened and went to the doctor. I found out that it is not just a cold or flu, but it was something else (thankfully it’s not dengue). Apparently, I had stomach flu which causes dehydration too!

Jollibee was my go-to food lately

I am always craving for Jollibee!

Being active on Twitter

I only created an account on Twitter last year. I’m not as active as other people, but at least now I’m trying to be active on Twitter. What’s good about this is I get to interact with more people too!

Watching Korean drama is my new hobby

During my free time, I always watch anime. But lately, I’m into Korean dramas. I started watching Descendants of the Sun (because Song Hye Kyo was the protagonist and I’m really a fan of her), then I just finished watching W – Two Worlds.

Last weekend, I asked a question on Twitter on what I should watch first. Doctors or Goblin? Many suggested Goblin so I’m watching it now! I’ll watch Doctors after I’m done with Goblin.

Visited my dogs and celebrated our husky’s 2nd birthday

I visited our dogs at my friend’s house (he has my Pomeranian too) and brought chew bones for them to play with. I used to see them twice a week, but sadly, I only see them at least once a month.

I’m happy that I still get to see the good things that happened to me regardless of the unfortunate events. To be honest, the news about politics is exhausting me and I just wanted it to settle soon. Or at least, read more good news.

I wanted to blame my monthly visitor for letting me feel down, but I know that it wasn’t the reason. Anyhow, these good things that happened to me make me think that life wasn’t so bad after all. I still think that things happen for a reason!

When life hits you hard, do you still see the bright side? What are the things that are making you happy lately?

  1. Number 7!!! YAAAS. Hahaha. I’m officially quitting McDonald’s and choosing Jollibee instead. So much love for their yum burger and chicken. <3 One of my goals in life is to visit Cebu and I can't wait to earn more so that I can finally finance my travel expenses.

    1. Every Friday, my boyfriend and I dine out. We always have a budget for this, but we only have Php 300 left. So guess where we are going to eat tonight. JOLLIBEE. Hahaha!
      Don’t forget to try canyoneering when you visit Cebu. I still suggest this activity because it is sooooo much fun. I hate to admit this, but I didn’t jump off a cliff!

    1. I always say that happiness is a choice. Without appreciating what we currently have now, it will just make us sadder, I think. That’s why I still continue to write my happy list every month. I have the tendency to dwell on the negative things. Thanks for visiting my blog, Danica <3

  2. This is inspirational. I miss writing things like this. While I can blog nonstop, come to think of it, when was the last time I just really poured my heart out? I can’t even remember. I’m always talking about events, places, food, etc, but never about me. And I know you know there’s a difference. My posts used to be so personal, but now parang nalalamangan na ng promotional blog posts. Masyado silang masaya. OMG KAREN THIS BLOG POST IS MAKING ME REALIZE A LOT OF THINGS. HAHAHAHA.

    1. You always have a lot on your plate! ? it’s amazing nga na you were still able to manage your time despite of all the events that you have to attend to!
      I like writing personal posts. I like my readers to get to know me more! Hehe. Before kasi I don’t write something personal like this. I always make sure din na I write my happy list post at least once a month! It’s somehow a recap din of what happened the previous month.

      Hahaha! Go, Bae! I can’t wait to read your personal posts. I want to get to know you more! ?

  3. I hope it does get better for you…thanks for sharing your thoughts. Yes I will to focus on the better things.
