New Experiment: Flower Arrangement

This started out when I was scouting for a centerpiece for our table.  I was looking for ready made flower arrangements and I thought that it would probably be cheaper if I just made it myself.  I already had an idea of what I wanted, so I bought the vase and the flowers and just started putting them all together and came up with something nice.  I actually enjoyed making it and I'm already planning of doing my next flower arrangement project.  A friend told me I can start a business out of it, but I know that flower arrangement is not just putting the flowers together in a vase, there are different techniques and styles that one needs to learn in order to be professional in that field.  But for now, I'm just enjoying this new found interest, if I intend to make a career or a business out of it, we'll never know.

The Sadness Spell

For some unknown reason, I have been feeling melancholic the past couple of days.  I could not exactly point out the reason why I have been feeling so "down and out".  It felt like a sadness spell was cast on me, or it must be the weather or my hormones, lol!!  So when my cousin sent me a text message inviting me to the birthday dinner of her sister, I instantly said yes.  I missed the family get together last December, and I needed to make up for not being there the last time.  

Seeing my cousins and relatives was a breath of fresh air.  It feels good to be around family.  We were all exchanging stories and anecdotes over dinner, laughing over funny stories of our childhood. There was a point when I missed being at home with my family, because dinner time was always a time for us to talk about things and share what's happening with our lives.  

I really think that going out  and being with other people did me good.  I felt recharged somehow and a little less lonely.  It was an awesome way to start my week.  So far things are running pretty well, hopefully I could say the same thing by the end of this week.  So sadness please go away, I don't want you in my life, not this year, not ever.

2011 - The year that was...

2011 was a year full of realizations.  I discovered things about myself that I never imagined I could do.  I realized that I can be tough when I need to be.  I realized that if people can change, then feelings can too.  As much as I believe that people should always get what they deserve, it's just unfair that in reality it does not happen all the time.  I realized that there are people in this world who are born to make your life miserable, and that it's really up to you if you allow them to get in your nerves.  

In 2011, the kids each had their share of ER visits, where nebulization became a routine, it was also this year where I experienced being really sick that I literally was in bed the whole day, only getting up for a bathroom break.  I also finally got to use my health insurance to have some tests done.  But so far, we are still blessed to be 100% healthy, except for some minor asthma attacks and migraine headaches once in a while.

2011 was a year where I found friends from the past, as well as met new ones.  It was also a year where I had to pass up on some opportunities that came along because I felt that it was not intended for me.  2011 was a year that left me still with so many questions, but nevertheless I could say that it was a good year for us.  A year where all the happy memories will always outweigh the bad ones.  A year where I will always be thankful that I have my family and friends who has always been there for me.

Good bye 2011, it was nice having you around, but I have to move ahead and as I welcome 2012, I hope and pray that it will be a much better year for all of us.
