In life, it is better to celebrate the little blessings and little rewards we get — instead of harping on the negatives.
For almost two months now, I have been swamped with work and has been battling the daily stress of even dealing with people I rather feed to the Walkers. I was also trying to fit in my consulting gig in between the back-breaking marketing work and somehow, by the Grace of the Higher Being, I was able to manage my schedule. I am lucky that my client is understanding of my situation — the bottom line is that as long as I keep my end of the bargain and submit my copies on sked. Still, I would have loved to provide them more time. I enjoy working for this little group and the people are quite nice.
I was able to get earlier the check representing the first half of my consulting gig. It was precious, and again came at an opportune time.
Here’s the reward I bought myself for being such a Little AssKicker:
Military green V-neck t-shirt – PHP259 (about USD6)
High waisted black skirt – PHP399 (about USD10)
Cross earrings – PHP125 (about USD3)
Meow Necklace – PHP200 (about USD4)
All of these for less than PHP1,000.00!
Sometimes, nothing beats the simple pleasures of life. Like, Forever 21+. I used to think that getting curves was the bane of my existence because I can’t get nice clothes that fit me. With Forever 21+ — I was able to buy myself jeans (without having been shamed into not fitting into a size 30), leggings that does not highlight my cellulites and dresses that does not accentuate the love handles.
Double yey again for life’s little pleasures 🙂
