Sleep deprived in a great way

bed time

 

For the past three or four months, things have been uber busy as I have mentioned in my last post. One thing after another keeps over lapping and yep, some things that we can’t control. Since the holidays are fast approaching my sleep deprivation will continue (this time I am not guessing, I am stating). Getting a 10 hour sleep in a day will always be a talent. I had that before and I loved it, then my insomnia-tic ways surfaced again. Main reason is my travel time from home to work is roughly 2 hours and vice versa. So in a day, that’s minus 4 hours of sleep already for me compared to my 15 minutes travel time when I was staying at my grand mother’s house. You may ask me, do I regret it? Moving back to my parents house? Nope, I don’t I just miss my “Inang” at times. Then I got a new job function, which I enjoy a lot, but there are times I have to extend which is okay with me. Lastly, my coffee addiction turned into endless Starbucks momentos with all the special people. Before I would only drop into my fave store after or before my shift starts, now it’s both. Pre-shift coffee for my self-dates, US girls cocol time (mostly Fridays) and realization time. Post-shift coffee dedicated to my beloved friends, non-stop laughing and shedding our hearts out. Weekends are jammed packed because we have special guests, my relatives from Germany are here and we make sure to spend most of our time together if we can. So far so good, we had a lot of quality time together for the past weeks.

The other night, I had a chance to sleep for 8 hours and that was the closest I can get from my past 10 hour sleep routine. I opened my eyes, gave thanks to the Lord, for a happy day ahead, the pool of happiness is waiting for me. Am always ready to swim 🙂 Changes as they say, will always be good.

Realizations 101

“When the Realization is deep, your whole being is dancing” – Zen saying

1) Change is good most of the time
2) Cutting my own bangs feels safer
3) Nail polish looks ugly after two weeks
4) A good watch is the one that lasts for 5-10 years (battery), that leads me to another realization which is number 5
5) Watches are the perfect gift for any occasion, may it be birthdays, anniversaries or just to surprise your special someone (I guarantee you that)
6) Once you eat an apple, finish it
7) Life is a constant battle between our own angels and devils
8) Sleeping for more than 10 hours is bad and sleeping for less than 3 hours is exhausting
9) The way to get a perfect sexy cute butt is by doing squats daily (dum dum dum)
10) I will always be the crazy one and am happy about it

“All great changes are preceded by chaos”

Blog title was easy, just got it from Google and it was from the famous man named Deepak Chopra. Honestly I heard it from a dear friend yesterday and he was kinda laughing at how odd the quote sounded. True enough, because hearing it for the first time, it seemed negative to me too. Minutes and hours passed and these seven words was stuck in my head like the song “I, I love you like a love song baby”

Changes as well all know, is never-ending. THAT WILL ALWAYS BE A FACT! So the question is, how willing are we to accept changes? How willing are we to expand our horizon and leave our comfort zone where in we feel at home all the time? Like, drinking milk in the morning because you ran out of coffee and cream. I was not so sure about it myself so I took some quiet time alone and thought about it real hard. My mind was running out in the open, nowhere to go because it was blank until I realized that changes are not really that bad. I mean, it depends on the situation but we can always think about the positive effects it can bring (I thank God for giving me a positive inner goddess).

One example I can think of was when I got transferred to a coed school during my second year in high school. Frightened as I described it… I was really nervous on the first day. Coming from an all girls environment, I was like: How do I act?,How do I eat?, Who will be my friends?, were a few questions on my mind. After two years, I was thankful for the big change. WHY? I met my first love there and met 8 gorgeous ladies. Up to now, memories of my first “I Love You’s” never fails to lift me up. And the thought of unlimited birthday celebrations, Christmas themed parties, colorful summers and never-ending Sunday stories with my girls always make me smile from ear to ear.

So as you can see, though my first love didn’t last that long, it was fine with me. Feelings come and go but memories will stay. Besides I still have my 8 gals and there are more Sundays to come.

To sum it all up, Changes always happen, they are inevitable but once the REASONS surface on why that change occurred, it will not fail us. Faith should be connected to Change. Change pushes us to a different direction, sometimes it so dark we can’t see, only Faith acts like the light that will get us through the long dark tunnel.

So now, I am embracing Change again, I will have to let go of the negative thoughts, and be guided by the light to direct me… in the path called LIFE and experience ultimate happiness.
