Another Good Sunday

I enjoyed sleeping this week. That is odd, for me. When I had anxiety episodes last year, it was very hard to sleep, I could only manage about 2 hours of shut eye and I would be awake the whole day. Now a full 8 hours plus an extra one makes me feel well rested.

I spent Saturday night chilling, watching dvd or reading and snoozing in between, whatever.

I woke up and got online. My internet provider sucks, as most in the Philippines does. There is no good internet signal. I have to be here very early in the morning to get a post in and do some surfing. Hmmph.

In a few minutes I will sleep some more until its time for an early breakfast around 7am. Life is good.

 

Wonton Noodle Soup

 

Siomai

 

Breakfast in a Sunday Farmers’ Market

 

 

I will get the Sunday paper, probably go to the farmers’ market ¬†and have a good noodle soup with siomai. Wonderful. It’s really free falling today with a couple of chores like giving my kitchen top a good clean up and bathroom scrub. Typical condo cleaning.\

Later I will read about yoga and do some poses. A nap after sounds decadent, but I may go for it, too. See?

I choose to do all of these instead of worrying about work, or getting upset about an absentee father coming back into my family’s life and intruding into our senses. I will take things one day at a time and be detached to desired outcomes.

Today is being in the present, on a Sunday. ūüôā

The Jamba Juice Experience

I was on the YM with a friend and we were discussing healthy living. He mentioned that he needed to drink fruit shakes and head down to Jamba Juice. I said “there is one here in Manila that has just opened but I haven’t gone yet, though some friends were at the opening several weeks ago”. ¬†He said, “its a good juice bar” and that I should check it out. Well, I did and here is my Jamba Juice experience.

BHS

Bonifacio High Street, the main street retail complex in The Fort has expanded. It is called BHS Central.

All within a picturesque greenery and open park. It has an urban amphitheater, interactive water plaza, play  fountain and water curtain cascades.

Hello world!

This is a very personal blog.

For sometime, as a domestic violence survivor, I had been stuck in the past. It was horrific, life stopping and a totally draining experience. But I came out of it with nothing but my broken self that I knew  I would piece together again  one day. The time it took to grieve  and accept the loss is exactly what is needed, and I am not about to question that.

I am now in the present. I know that the moment I am, I will  make an effort of connecting to myself this way.

This blog is born at a time that the chaos in my life is about making the changes about me. There is no one else involved. It is my personal time. I can do anything I want, go anywhere it suits me and just live it up. I do have a lot of lofty pursuits lined up.

But I start where I am and with what I’ve got. I have to be patient and let the process unfold.

Stay with me.
