Starting the Year Smiling

It’s the 23rd day into the new year.

Today, I arrived at Arezzo Place Pasig at nine in the evening after an exhausting two-ride back home- UV express from Robinsons Galleria to Pasig Palengke and a tricycle ride from Pasig Palengke to Arezzo. 

I stood in line with dozens of passengers for almost an hour waiting for our turn to ride a UV Express van and it really sucks when this government has done nothing to improve public transportation in this country. The highlight of my ride was the P20 bill that my seatmate accidentally dropped. I ran to catch her, addressing her “miss”, and handed her the money wishing I was giving him a million so I could get a reward back. Kidding.

As I reached home, I realized I was growing hungry. In the previous nights, I told myself not to eat so I could lose weight (yeah, I’m now at 80 kilograms). The other night, I opened my boxes and saw pairs of pants that I could no longer use because I outgrew them. Poor me.

Today, I decided to wear eye glasses again. During the check up last week, only the last two lines in the eye test are getting blurry. Seven months ago, it was worse- I could only read around three lines perfectly. Two years ago, I was wearing glasses but I did not pursue it. This time, my glasses have anti-radiation feature so my tiny eyes are protected from the harmful effects of the lights from the computer screen.

I have been living in solitude here at Arezzo, alone but not lonely. Thus, I have more time spending with myself thinking what should be next for me.

I realized how happy I am today. I am now living in a stress-free environment- work and the people are not toxic, the condo I am staying is peaceful, and I am disconnected from many people who drain other people's energy.

God knows I never asked for anything from him, except for this one simple thing. And I am seeing a ray of light (please.....)

I do not know but I am full of contentment and happiness today. I know I am not making enough money but I am happy spending my weekends the way it should be spent.

The next thing I want to do is to travel every weekend. I want to go out and bond with the world- again.

I smile and laugh a lot nowadays. And I think I am now getting healthier physically and emotionally. I am wondering what 2019 will look like for me.
