Counting my blessings

In a few hours, I'll be turning TWENTY already. I'm a bit excited and all but I'm neither frightened of anything nor conscious of my age, unlike Brent whom at his last birthday made a fuss on how he's going to turn 20 already or something like that.

So anyway, I still feel that its a big deal to finally count what Ive earned, lessons that Ive encountered for the past 19 years. Let's just see how much I could afford to scribble.

I'm LUCKY BECAUSE...

*Ive been blessed with an almost perfect family. Since the day I was born, I was never ever deprived of my childhood. My dad would buy me gifts and although he couldn't always be there for me, I finally learned that he did all that for us. And sometimes, I would get mad at my mom for being strict but then she still show us how she cares for us.

*I made a whole lot of friends during elementary, high school and especially now that I'm in college. And luckily, the ones from my childhood are still there for me.

*I've been able to experience the feeling of love and be loved. I had good and not-so-good boyfriends, I had dates (although shempre patago!) and never did I pay once for a date. I dont know if I'm just lucky or something but at least I didn't look like desperate for a date or something.

*Everytime something bad would happen, my instincts would tell me the right things to do. And I never underestimate my power towards that feeling.

*I've been to a lot of places already, attended plays, visited lots of museums, watched movies, and made music a big part of my life.

*I've been blessed with a voice that is fair enough for me to call a talent. And it amazed a lot of people already.

*My parents let me take the course and school I'm attending now. They have been supportive although we all know that writing is a tough profession to be in.

*Although there are tough times, I was still able to make up for it.

*I've been able to read a lot of books since I was young. And my mom encourages me to do so. From fairy tales to Sweet Valley, Archie comics and now, novels

*The feeling that I could always count on my friends and would stay with me in good or bad times.

*That even though I had this addiction on Candymags, my mom never burned a single copy of it.

*When I refuse or wanted to cry but feel as if I cannot, the sky would always cry for me.

*Even if there are a lot of pressures in this world, I could be able to relax watching movies with friends or with my family.

*That I finally believed in the phrase "TIME HEALS ALL WOUNDS"

*I've been able to meet popular personalities, people who are not famous but has a lot to offer, and ordinary people who would forever change my life and my perspective.

*Although I have been turned down by a lot of people or have been accused of things that I'm not really capable of doing, I would always stay strong and believe in myself.

*God gave me lots of confidence to be what I really want.

*I was never hated by anyone unless its necessary. Anyway, I don't have anything to hide or they couldn't expose something from me naman.

*I was never forced to do anything I oppose to.

*And lastly, for the years that Ive been loved, though of, cared. Because that made me the person I am now.

Oh diba? Thank you to the max ito. Birthday ko naman, pagbigyan na ko.

I still cant believe I'm turning 20. Sorry, hindi naman po kasi halata eh.

BTW, I sang for KABOG- AB SONGFEST today. I can't believe I sucked. I mean, Im used to debuts and weddings but I never saw this coming. Not for at least a few months. My knees went shaking the whole time I was singing. I let my 4Journ1 down. And now I feel as if im not born for it anymore..=(

But I'll be okay i guess..

Gracias y'all! =)
