imageHave you ever purchased something really awesome, but realized later on that maybe it was meant for someone else?

I really love the message on this wall art, but it has been in it’s box for many months. Why didn’t I put it up already?

Shortly after purchasing it, I realized that one of the ladies at work had a print out of this saying on her wall. I think we bonded a little because of it.

Every time I thought of this art frame or the words, she would pop in my mind. Every time I would see her, I thought about the art frame. More so now since I have been feeling a little sad because her husband is battling cancer and I find myself not knowing what to say.

I have decided to gift this art frame to her, and I hope that somehow it will help her during this most difficult time in her life.

I was chatting with one of my cousins regarding one of my issues. There are some guys that I don’t feel comfortable with–whether at work and outside of it.

Usually, I can tolerate a lot (and I mean A LOT) until I feel like I have to take some measures.

As I was explaining my situation, my cousin said that the problem was that I am too nice.

She had experienced the same thing, and that my being nice could sometimes be an encouragement to others.

Since I usually smile, divert, and just remove myself from the situation quickly when I feel uncomfortable… that by not saying anything about what’s making me uncomfortable… I was actually perpetuating my situation.

I think that this is another tough lesson for me to learn from, and is an important part of self-care and standing up for myself.

 

 

 

Having had an experience with a spine issue before, when a new persistent pain at a different site pops up along it, it becomes a scary thing. Luckily, I received a message from my Spine Specialist that my recent MRI and X-Rays show that things are normal. I am also glad that I am better at caring for myself and instead of waiting for things to get many times worse, I get things checked sooner.

imageSomething cute happened today! It was something that brought a smile to many faces.

I was going to throw a smal cup into a Minion trash can, but a young toddler, following his dad, was about to pass in front of me, pushing a kid’s shopping cart. However, he got distracted by the Minion, stopped, and gave the Minion a hug! Aw!

His dad, however, was aghast and exclaimed, “That’s a trash can!” LOL!

Wasn’t that adorable? 😁

imageI am grateful that I can turn to Super Soul Sunday — a place where I can get my Spiritual fix.

I learn something new each time I watch an episode — always pertinent to what I am facing to get validations and receive important reminders.  It is a go-to for me as I walk my Spiritual path.

imageAs I was driving today, I noticed that my car was nearing a particular number… So when it neared “77777,” I exited the freeway so I could take this picture at 11:17 a.m. (Please excuse the dust! 😜)

I am grateful for my car!

imageI am grateful for another yummy birthday dinner. Thank you!

I was waiting to see my Specialist and found this article on how to live without regrets from “More” magazine.

It is again a good reminder on how to live a life without regrets. In the article’s case, to release a long-held regret, the writer had to fulfill a promise she wasn’t able to complete many years before. In doing so, she was able to let go of the guilt and sadness she felt for that broken promise.

I believe that we each have some regrets in life. Some are easier to mend, some may not be… Some may even require some changes in ourselves or our situation… Whatever it is, may each of us find a way to let go of regrets that keep us from living life happily and fully.

imageToday is Mercedita Day! I scheduled today as a floating holiday to celebrate my birthday so… Yay, for Mercedita Day! HaHa!

Mercedita Day is a day to celebrate joy and yummy food! So after sleeping in, I made Oden (Japanese fish cake soup). It is also Chinese tradition to eat noodles on one’s birthday for long life, so I added bundled Konnyaku (yam noodles) in my soup.

Today, I pray for peace and healing for all!

For lunch, I went into an Asian Market to pick up some lunch. The cashier told me to go back and put more food in my box. She wanted to ensure I got my $9’s worth. LOL! Gotta love that!
