One day at a time

by - February 20, 2014

I'm going through a tough phase right now. At first when I heard the news, it took a really bad toll on me and I was so confused, drained and hurt all at the same time. I knew I did the best I could, but I guess sometimes that's not enough. I know I was somewhat at fault. At the moment, I'm just trying to cope one day at a time and I'm just really thankful that I have true friends and my family to help me get through this.

Whenever I start to feel sad though, I just go to a place that I can get a breather at, like this garden. I also try to find things that can make me happy, even in the littlest things. That's why I'm also thankful for the #100HappyDays project that I'm doing. I can be happy or feel sunny about something every single day. :)

Aside from that, I turn to God, of course to help me understand the things that I cannot and I sometimes talk to my Angkong to make me feel better. True enough, the other day, without any reason at all, I just felt at peace and calm. I know it won't be like this all the time since I am still trying to cope up with the bad news that I got. It's still fresh and will take awhile for it to be alright. But someday, I know all this hurt will go away and it will teach me a lesson. I believe every obstacle in life does. :)

People most of the time dress up according to their mood. But with me, whether I'm sad or happy, I wanna dress up in happy and bright hues. And with this outfit, without words, you'd probably think that I was in such a cheery mood, right? 

 I really love this cut out crochet flower top. It just gives off such a clean, crisp and dainty look. Then top it off with a quirky necklace with keys just makes it romantically-cute, if there is such a thing. I guess I would always find a way to add some quirk to my outfit, whether they be a classic look,  laid back, formal, grunge, etc.

Which brings to me to my point that I am in love with a new online store called CHOIES. It has so many cute clothes, accessories and even shoes! I can't even begin to express how much stuff I want from their site. Don't just take my word for it, visit them and you'll know why!

Well, this little girl is gonna head on to bed now…or maybe just rest, in case Asher is still wide awake. I'm really glad that the week is almost over and Friday is upon us! Thank God it's Friday…tomorrow!
