Few days before the new year’s eve, I was having a sore throat and could hardly talk. I was coughing and eventually lost my voice. Maybe because of the cold weather here in the Philippines during the month of December and I was constantly out of the house most of the days. Luckily, my sickness did not progress to a more complicated stage but I was feeling irritated over the past few days because of not feeling well. At any rate, life has to move on, I have to fulfill my obligations in the house and have to attend to my family. I was still able to cook few dishes for our “media noche” although in between, I have to go to bed to take a rest. I was in medications for the past week and this made me lazy to work on so many things. Nonetheless, the simple birthday celebration of my daughter Mika was able to push through as planned on January 02. Her actual birthday is on January 04 but she requested to celebrate it earlier so she can ask her classmates to come to the house and celebrate with her as classes will resume the following day.
As I woke up early today and feeling a little bit better, I had the chance to sit in front of my laptop and my random thoughts had brought me to write entries in my journal and also to come up with this post. Pardon me for my random thoughts. This might be the result of my post sickness blues.
Anyway, I was just thinking, “What is in store for me for 2012?” To be honest, I have helluva of things going on my mind. I have pending projects unresolved from 2011, some commitments that have to be faced, the deteriorating health of my Mom, the growing needs of my kids, my husband’s sudden decision to change job and the uncertainties I faced, career wise.
A couple of days from now, I would be going back to my job site and will face life’s new challenges. I don’t actually know how to begin the year right but I was thinking that if I have to begin the year, I have to begin it with positive thoughts and positive energies. I have to think that I will be able to do all my projects and that things will fall into places just the way I planned it.
For whatever it takes, I have to believe that good things will come my way and that this year will be a better one for me.
With God's grace. It will!
