Good kind of busy

by - September 06, 2013

So my day was pretty packed today. First I fetched Athan from school, then took him home and after awhile, I myself had to rush to my own school to fix my enlistment and finalize my schedule for the upcoming term. I mostly spent my whole day there; 4 hours to be exact. But despite the long line I was happy I got to accomplish what I needed to do and I'm satisfied with my new schedule. As soon as I was done at Taft, I then headed over to Glorietta to meet up with Tracy, so we could go together to Sofitel Manila with Beb Ana for The Hola! Philippines Magazine launch. Whew! Packed, right? But productive, so I can say that it was a good day. :)

I know some people might find that being too busy is a bad thing. May that be true, I also believe that being too idle can cause you to mope around or sometimes depression. Plus, I thank God for the good kind of productiveness. It gets me pumped up and more optimistic about things to come. :)

And speaking of being productive or time in general, I recently finished reading The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom. I've read all his books and I always enjoy highlighting my favourite quotes in the book. Here are a few that I learned from The Time Keeper...

"Holding on to things will only break your heart..."

"Remember this always: There is a reason why God limits man's days; To make each one precious."

"We all yearn for what we have lost. But sometimes, we forget what we have."

"Ends are yesterdays, not tomorrows."

"With endless time, nothing is special. With no loss or sacrifice, we can't appreciate what we have."

"When you are measuring life, you are not living it."

skirt: ensembles
shoes: nine west

Those are just a few that stuck to me. I loved the book. Well, I'm personally biased when it comes to Mitch Albom, because he's one of my favourite authors. =P But if you've read some of his books, you'd know why. :)

Hope your day was filled with productivity as well! Weekend is almost here! Don't forget, Manila Sundance Bazaar starts tomorrow!!:) Excited to go shopping!

Thanks to Beb Ana and Tracy for the photos!:-*
