ThreeSixtyFive

..attempts to capture my inner thoughts of my daily life....
Today is Veterans Day and also marks one week since the day my nephew, Caleb, was born. I want to thank all of those who served our country, to give the rest of us the freedom to live, and for my baby nephew to grow up in a world where opportunities are endless. 

Education is one of the many opportunities in America that we often take for granted. Jacky, my little sister, will graduate nursing school this December, and she gets to pick one person that has been supportive and most influential to pin her on graduation day.  

She picked me. 
I cried like a baby. 
Probably like Caleb.

Yesterday was pretty productive for me. I was able to go shopping with Erica on my lunch and got AD and Annie their bday gifts for this weekend. I always tell Erica this, but if it wasn’t for her, I would probably quit a long time ago. It really doesn’t matter how great the job is, if we don’t enjoy the people we work with, it would be miserable going to work everyday. 

1. I am thankful for Erica

One of my other highlights from yesterday was when I got home. Lucy and I was able to do the laundry, clean the bathroom and do the dishes, all within one hour. I’m going to miss having her as my roommate.

2. Thankful for my sister, Lucy.

Lastly, are these duckies! Hahha, they make me smile. Lucy said I was ‘crazy’ but they do actually make my day. Made a few props for the backdrop, food tags, and favors for my sister in laws baby shower. 

3. Creating these duckies for baby Nolan. Shooo cute! *Toot toot*

Yesterday, I went to work and had dinner with  Phuong, Emmie and AD, and Quyen. I am thankful for having good girl friends that are actually close by where we can meet up at any given time to catch up. It’s been about a month since I seen some of these girls, and it seems like forever! 

We had some Ramen & a ton of Kimchee. Yes, I am thankful for Kimchee as well… so much that I had to capitalized the “K.” It’s been so long since I had some. I remember when I was younger, Mom would make me buckets at a time because I would finish it so quickly…. 

Those are my two highlights yesterday. 

1. Great girl friends

2. Kimchee. 

Being Thankful

I read an article recently about being blessed, and actually ‘feeling’ blessed. Often times, especially recently, I focus on the negative aspects about my day and reflect on what I want to change about my life and losing sight on all the great things that happened. 

This inspired me to start a daily journal entry to list what I am thankful for. Just a few sentence a day to see what makes me happy that day. Whether it was reflection or something that I experienced. Even if there are unfortunate events or frustrating situations, these entries will only be about positive thoughts and all the great things I should be thankful for. When time passes, it should be interesting to see: 

1. If my personality changed

2. What actually makes me happy and what inspires me

3. If speaking positively, actually makes me think positively. 

If I do something enough, it will become a habit, and eventually become my character right? Lets see.

High Horse

Someone posted this on their FB recently and got me thinking. 

There’s no such thing as “not having enough time.” If something’s important enough to you, you’ll make time for it.”

With birthdays, weddings, and events every week, I always find it hard to visit MAN. He never brought it up as an issue and even worse, I never found it to be one since I had legitimate reasons. This weekend was the first time I got off my ‘high horse’ and drove up to see him [after ten months.]  Spent the day on the farm, dinner, and then a movie. A tiring day but I have a new appreciation for what he does- especially for me <3

Can I feel contentment without complacency? Maybe I’m surrounded by ambitious individuals, but I never felt what I had or where I am, was ever enough…… until now.

A simple life is not necessary a bad life. As a matter of fact, I am beginning to feel that it will be my perfect life. 

Timing is everything

I truly believe that life is not going to hand things to you. It will take hard work and perseverance. However, this year has taught me that it does take a little luck. Even if you have the knowledge, the experience, the heart and the drive; if timing is not on your side when these opportunities rises, it will easily slip by you without any warning. So don’t beat yourself up if you put in 100%; a part of falling is getting back up.
