Yep, I said perfect week. By that, I meant YOUR kind of perfect week, not Barney’s. Yours is like a milestone in the #100HappyDaysChallenge, which became popular after a certain study showed that only a small percent of people find something to be happy about for a 100-day streak. At first, the news seemed depressing because it was statistics that said you’re more likely to find reasons to be sad rather than to be happy on most days of your life, and that the happiness challenge was a REAL challenge. But come to think about it, so much could happen in a span of 100 days that it wouldn’t be surprising if you find yourself in the dumps a couple of times within those days and lose the challenge.
I think that what is more important than tallying the longest number of days you can live on without getting upset is developing a positive attitude that would help people get by even on their worst days. Why not form a habit that would help develop this kind of attitude? The good news is that it only 21 days to form a habit. For just 3 weeks, don’t dwell on worries, fears and negative emotions, and focus your mind on the good things that just happened and nice things that people have done for you. Keep on doing this until you’ve trained your mind that small problems shouldn’t bother you and that there is so much in your life that makes it awesome.
You’re on 6th day on your first week. Did someone tell you that he loves you and misses you this morning? Go ahead and smile for it. Keep on going and make us proud and happy.
Paggising mo, wala ng lahat ang mga taong mahalaga sayo. Nawala, biglang hindi lang sila nag-exist.
Wala na ang mga taong maiingay, makukulit at nakikialam sa mga trip mo. Wala ka ng responsibilidad at expectations na nakaka-pressure. Lahat ng mga bagay na kinaiinisan mo pag nandyan lang sila sa tabi mo wala na.
Wala ng babati sayo tuwing umaga sa cellphone mo at magsasabing mahal ka niya. Wala ka na ring kasamang manood ng anime tuwing umaga habang kumakain ka ng itlog na mula ngayon ikaw na lagi ang magluluto. Wala ng tatawa sa mga jokes mong walang kwenta. Wala ka ng kasamang tatawa sa mga katangahan mo sa bahay nung bata ka pa. Wala ka ng kasamang magtitiyagang makinig sa boses mo pag nagvideoke ka sa Timezone. Wala ng hahawak ng kamay mo pag gininaw ka sa sinehan at habang naglalakad sa Trinoma.
Wala ka ng kukunan ng pictures na hindi ikaw ang bida. Wala ka ng maaasar kapag gusto mo mam-bully sa bahay dahil trip mo lang. Wala ka ng masusungitan na after 30 minutes e okay na ulit kayo. Wala ka ng pagpapacute-an at popormahan. Wala ka ng ido-drawing, susulatan at tutugtugan. Wala ka ng igogoodbye kiss pag-alis mo ng bahay. Wala ka ng papasalubungan.
Wala ka ng problema. Wala na ring dahilan para ngumiti, para magpatuloy, para mabuhay.
for my terrible sleep last night, and it’s wearing off. I’m dozing off.
He called this morning and he asked how I was and what’s the plan.
A few minutes later, he called again just to say I love you.
I died of happiness and kilig!!!!!!!
Sometimes, little inconveniences make for good stories.
Be brave. Be eccentric.
Don’t focus on anything. Just let yourself, let the things around you flow. You’ll be surprised how much love and good will flow into and out from you, so much that you’ll be effortlessly happy with the people you love.
Sabi mo, “Masaya ako kasi may time pa rin tayo kahit ganito yung work.” :) Then I knew things are okay again.
