28 years of blessings...

Today is the last day that I will be 28. For the past 28 years, life has been a telenovela for me. I've had my really high moments and I've had my really low moments. I've cried buckets of tears and been in situations I wish I never had to go through again. Most people who know my story says I should sell my life story to a soap opera because it resembles one.

Still ... for the last 28 years ... I want to list down 28 blessings that I am thankful for.

  1. I am still alive.
  2. I am healthy.
  3. I graduated from one of the most prestigious colleges.
  4. I still have a job in the middle of the global financial crisis.
  5. I have my family who supports me no matter what.
  6. I have few friends but they are real and accept me for all that I am.
