An Effort for Gratitude


I must admit – I have had some serious problems with blogging lately. Although I know it had been solely based on the fact that I had no focus and I only went on blogging by mood. No consistency or whatsoever.

So in light of the new year, I plan on making every day as fruitful as possible in all aspects of my life. I have so many things going on in my mind every day that most of the time I end up doing nothing. I admire people and things that I see and make them inspirations for my own ideas but literally doing it and making it into something tangible becomes a chore. It’s a serious shift on mindset I believe, but something simple as that could be hard to achieve at times.

As for my life here in the blogsphere, I plan on taking it on a more earnest consideration, blogging more constantly as ever. And to be able to do that, I have been thinking on making this more of a ‘gratitude – outlet’ from now on.
With that said, well, I must say something that I have to be thankful for what happened to me  this day…..

Seriously, this is harder than I thought…

Ok, for starters, I am noticing things here in my house that I have taken for granted for the past months. My room, specifically. I just noticed that so far I have been so blessed having a nice bed filled with pillows and sheets that I sleep on every single night of my life, except of course when I am not at home. Its always been filled with stuff that I love, from books, clothing, bags, make-ups, and even nail polishes that I collect..

With all the calamities that had happen in the Visayas area of the Philippines, somehow I feel totally ashamed of myself for even complaining that I don’t have this and I don’t have that. That this is ugly and I need to buy a new one.

I know its ridiculous yet it is so true.

So I guess right now, the thing I could say that I am so thankful to God for is putting me in this place, in this house, in a small town of a small country where I could freely do [have] whatever I want without the fear of water flooding my place, the earth shaking and breaking my ground, or debris of a flying roof smacking my face and killing me.
At least for this moment..that is..

Most of all, for my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who is the very reason why I am still alive. Undeserving as I could be to still be breathing and taking life so egotistically, even now it is still a great wonder to me why He offered Himself to die on the cross and bore all my sin and shame, suffered so much that he died but rose again after the third day. And all I need to do is believe on the sufficiency of that as my assurance to meet Him face to face someday.

This is day one. I know there must be a lot more things to be thankful for while still breathing here on earth.
