Monthly Flashback: Unwritten January

January 24, 2015

There's no way but up. I guess I have that kind of mindset. This year, I am determined to make my life better. It's not gonna happen overnight I know but every single step is worth it. I want to be bolder.
I really want to. I realize that I've been living in my comfort zone for so long now. I think it's okay this way. Safe side. Convenient. Comfortable. Just the way I like it.

BUT. Change is good too. Change for the better. No needless drama. Just healthy drama, if there's such thing. This year, Reiko should already be going to school. Husband plans to go back to work. And I am still here, same company, same type of work.. for almost 6 years now. I'm not saying it's bad.

Like what I told myself, I have to learn to embrace and love what I do. And I'm fine with my job. Sooner.. or maybe later, I'll see myself in a different workplace. I just don't know. But one thing to say is that.. this year, I want to finally release some of my inhibitions. In fact, I have the perfect song for that!

I hope you liked the song because I really do. It speaks to me so well. ♥ And now that I have it out there, I wanna share to you that I already started accomplishing some things from my BDJ 2015 power planner's checklist.

So what is it all about? It's a BDJ team-certified list of things to do this year. It aims to help us, women, discover new things about ourselves, and of course, allow us to sneak in more fun. I really, really like this idea! Let me just inform you as well that I deleted my bucket list! But I will create a new one. One that's more realistic and more achievable in this lifetime.

So going back to my BDJ checklist..... It has 101 things to do but I may not really be able to do some of them like number 59. Go on a blind date. You see, because I'm already married. Ha! All the rest are soooo cool and funny and I'm gonna try my best to do them all. This month I checked off 3 of them, the simple ones. Hurray!!!

91. Write a haiku. In order to do this, I had to research first. Haiku is a Japanese poem of 17 syllables in 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. It usually has something to do with nature and it's good to include one or more senses. The first two lines are related to each other while the third one is a surprise. Source.

13. Party at a local festival. Last week was our city's local festival. It's called Sinulog and it's attended by so many people - tourists, foreigners, and all walks of life. Since I gave birth, I never got to celebrate it but this year I did!! And heck, it was more than a crowd. It was soooo hard to get through the throng of party-goers. There were street parties in the heart of the city so we had no choice but to walk. We eventually settled at my husband's friend's place and good that it's just beside the street so that we could still feel the party. This was the only street photo I got because I was too scared my phone would get snatched!

45. Try a new fragrance. Since I started working, I'm only using one body spray -- Bench So In Love, because it's not too strong and when using it, a lot of people tell me I smell good! This week I tried a new perfume, Love Collides (For Her) by Avon which was my godmother's birthday gift to me. It's been great so far!


Tada!! Tell you what? I still have a credit card to pay.. it's not delinquent or past due. It's in good standing but I spent a little too much last year, my bad! But I'm paying it and it's quite big. So what I'm trying to say is that.. I'm staying happy despite this credit card! Hahahaha!! If you're reading this and you're going through something difficult now, I hope you still find the time to smile and enjoy each day. I know it's quite cliche, but YOLO always proves to be true. #ENJOY! :)
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else.. no one else 
Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still UNWRITTEN.
