This week has been full of challenges and blessings. Challenges because I've realized that though I am slowly moving on from my past, the future is still affected by what happened in my past. I almost ruined something beautiful but luckily, it was saved. Thank you.
I realized that I need to unlearn some things and that I need to let go. I need to accept that I am beautiful the way that I am, including the extra bulges in my tummy and my thunder thighs. I will never be as thin as I was before but I am also never going to be that naive and silly.
I am turning 28 this Thursday and for that I am thankful. I am thankful because I have a family that loves me and supports me no matter what. I am thankful for Arny who may hate my bratty ways from time to time andmy being selfish but still loves me no matter what. I know that he would defend me at all costs. I am thankful for my friends and for newfound friends. I am thankful that yes, I am financially not in a good place but the fact is, I am still way better off than a lot of people.
Most especially, I am thankful for my son. He gives me strength to survive, to move on, to live. He is the reason why after I cry and break down, I am able to stand again. He is the reason why amidst all the trial I went through, I am still alive. He is my reason. He is my life.
PS. I just had a very simple advanced bday celebration and it was really really nice. My family was there and two important people in my life, Jo and RJ. Thanks guys for making time.
