Someone asked me this question:

“What is your reason to be happy?” –i just felt i had a lot of reasons to share…..

my reason starts upon waking up each morning (though after a bad dream)…that i am still alive. no matter how bad things were the past day/my dream was, each time i wake up i still thank God i woke up.

I don’t usually wake up with with a ready smile on my face… getting out of bed almost immediately,cramming,and striding through my day having to face any problems and challenges that may arise..ohh, If i want to be full of gloom then i just keep at the negative thoughts, stay in bed wandering why the world doesn’t just stop spinning and get it over with. …why should i choose to be gloomy when i still have more and more reasons to be happy.

i have my family:the people i love, i care,i needed….(mom,lukas,dad)….isn’t that enough reason i got these people who truly loves and cares for me??the same people i know are happy of my existence….i need not enumerate how their simple words and actions makes me realize how much they do love me.but i know they do.they make me happy…

i have a fulfilling job…i get to do things i really love doing.I am very happy being surrounded by these little angels(should this be another reason aside from my work). Their smiles, their innocent words and stares, their little acts of showing love and respect..they sure melt my heart…oh kids, i love kids–looking forward for my own….well, back to my work…lot of people don’t have any,wherein they got to worry where to get finances for their needs..i have it …and i should be happy for that.

i have dreams,wishes and hopes...

I have something good to look forward to…i have even my wildest, most outrageous dreams that gives me hope. I am looking forward to that holiday by the beach in Bali,playing tennis with my baby,moving out and settling to his place,my dream wedding,honeymoon in Paris,married life, doing what a responsible wife should to my husband and mother to my kids,raise the kids well,see the kids grow, be with my kids as they fulfill their dreams, have grandchildren,grow old with my Lukas…isn’t this something to be cheerful about?

Focus on the good times that lie ahead, and start working towards making them a reality coz no one wants to willingly live in misery and despair for the rest of their days..

good health….

I complained for minor pains like upset stomach,headache,difficulty of breathing, i got asthma, i got nose bleeding, rhinitis….But i can say that i am still reasonably healthy.Lot of people have major illness, others are terminally ill..I’ve seen Nikki fought leukemia,i saw the glimmer of life within her,no matter how dull,still there was..

But, i can say my life is better, i have good health…i’m embracing it as a good reason to be cheerful and happy…
