how's your heart lately?

It`s surprisingly fine, thank you. :)

I mean, I don`t have anyone or anybody right now but I don`t think I lack anything. Although I must say that it has not been easy for me. Because we all know that when we lose someone, we lose a part of ourselves. I lost a part of myself. But I don`t think I`m beyond irreparable. People had hurt me, maybe both intentionally and not, but I think I just need time to let things fix itself after I`ve done my part with the fixing. I will be able to forgive people, too. But other than that, I have to forgive myself first. Time. I need time. And courage to do this. I don`t think it`s impossible.

I`ll surely pray for guidance. :)

` Twenteenth.♥

As I`m typing this, I`m 20 years, 1 day, 3 hours and 4 minutes old.

Here`s a rundown of what happened on my birthday.:)

I went to Jollibee to buy food that I was going to bring for Mama because Papa isn`t home to do it. (He`s in La Union.) I had to finish my lunch early because I needed to go to mass, so I did. Then I went home to get ready because I was meeting up with my biatches. I finished up getting ready early, so I had time to clean my messy room because I planned on inviting them over for dinner.

I met up with Rocky and Iris at 2PM in National Bookstore, and surprise surprise, he was carrying a bag of treats. A day earlier than my birthday, he told us the he and his love forgot about getting the Krispy Kreme doughnuts they promised to give me and Iris so I wasn`t really expecting to get this the day after.

We went to Shakey`s after walking. And while we waited for our orders I opened the other gift from Rocky`s love. This, I was kinda expecting, but it didn`t lessen my excitement at all. Because I love it. It`s in my wishlist, if you happen to have read my other entries, you`ll know it`s there. Anyhoo. I love it. I love it. I love it.♥

After eating oversized meals, we went to walk around the mall before we decided to go home and wait for dinner time. So we did what we do best: camwhore! :P

After dinner, around 9, Rocky and Iris decided to go home. It was family time.

We have not been complete for the longest time, so we took as many pictures as we could.

I was wishing for my 20th birthday to be special, and although I didn`t have a party that big, I`m more than happy that I spent my birthday with my bestest best friends for the first time. I know Rocky was still tired from his Manila trip, and Iris wasn`t really allowed to go out that day, but they came, and they made me feel that I was worth the effort. I really REALLY appreciate it.

And I`m really happy that my family still made an effort to make my day special even if I know we were short on budget. Mama Jill made the salad I always ask her to make on my birthday because it`s my favorite. And Mama Daise did all the cooking and cleaning. Mama was, well, Mama. She was too happy that she and Papa raised a beautiful kid for 20 years. Hahaha. :)) :P And my cousins. They`re the most amazing, and funny, creatures ever. 

For what I thought would be one of the worst birthdays of my life, turned out that it was really one of the bests. :)

` 11 ways to be more positive.

★ Spend some time taking stock of all the influences in your life. This includes friends, family, television shows, magazines, blogs, etc. Thinks about which aspects of your life motivate you and push you to live positively for yourself. Think about those aspects that pull you down and drain you of your positive energy. Spend less time around the negative influences and more time around the positive!
★ Set aside more time for yourself where you can be alone. Sometimes it is easy to become depressed and grumpy when you give all of your energy to others. Having scheduled “you” time will guarantee that you will be able to pamper yourself and participate in your favorite hobbies.
★ Try changing your perspective about situations. Sometimes that is all it takes to turn a crummy day around. I try very hard to find something positive that will come out of the crappy things that daily life deals us. It doesn’t always happen naturally, but it gets easier when you push yourself to see the good in life.
Have friends and family in your life who can cheer you up and encourage you to be positive when you fall down. It’s inevitable that you will have a bad day, stress attack, or an emotional melt down in the future. It happens. The difference between you and a negative person is that you have the courage to get back up and keep going. We all need to be reminded that life really can be amazing if we take the time to see things positively.
Fill your space with reminders of how wonderful your life is. Write your favorite encouraging quotes on colorful post-its and paste them around your home.
★ Write letters and cards to your close friends and family with positive wishes and joyful greetings! Spreading positivity helps you feel positive in general!
★ Encourage the people in your life who take on pessimistic attitudes to be more positive. If those people are not willing to hear you out, limit your time around them. Negativity is very draining and you can only be around it for so long before it takes over.
Get excited about the little things that make you happy!
If you are feeling down and depressed, own your feelings. Don’t deny that you are grumpy. Accept that you aren’t feeling 100% and give yourself time to just be.
De-clutter your life! Get rid of things that you don’t love, things that you never use, and things that aren’t sentimental to you. Clutter can weigh you down and fill your life with unnecessary negative energy! Make room for new things that you adore!
★ Channel your inner child every so often. Do things that the child within you would love! Blow bubbles, ride the merry-go-round, drink chocolate milk, play hop scotch, color, take photos of random objects, play dress-up, etc.
