This is to remind you that you're going to make it through no matter how hard and hopeless you may feel now.

We all know that there are times when life will attempt to break you down sometimes, As what I've known nothing and no one can protect you from this reality. Sometimes we get sad and lonely all of a sudden and we'd contemplate on how our lives has turned out different with what we've expected. 

Honestly my year didn't actually start as great as you guys might have and my 2015 didn't end as easy either. Mommy, my grandmother got sick, she had stroke, and that was something we didn't see coming, especially when it happened two days before Christmas. Since that day we stayed by her side and made sure that she gets all the good vibes. We were at the hospital for almost two weeks and yes, we were there for Christmas and New Year's. It wasn't that bad, we all had a great night and as days pass by it became lighter. Those were the times when I realized that nothing can be more comforting than to see the whole family, even those who are abroad, keeping touch and helping each other to make my grandmother feel hopeful and positive. And as of now mommy is well taken care of, making sure that she's happy every single day, which is making her recover faster. Let's just pray that hopefully she'd regain her strength soon and fully recover to her old jolly self . 

All I need now is to be strong not only for mommy but also for myself, This has been a life changer and it opened my mind and heart on what life can bring. It can really drag you to the darkest times and you might feel like you're all alone, which makes you feel betrayed and like you're carrying the problems of the whole world. You should remember that life is rarely easy, but it's always worth it. Sometimes the darkest times can bring you to the brightest places. 

And even if you fall a few more times and got more obstacles to take, Stand up and don't be afraid to fall again. Take note that the more challenges you face, the stronger you get. You have to look at the bright side, cause who would want to be in a room all alone in the dark, right? haha okay

Even if you get heart broken or if you fail in an exam or if you just had a shitty day , it's okay it will all be alright eventually. I promise. Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and appreciating it for everything that it is.

You need to find the strength to embrace life's changes, to learn as you go, to realize that every experience has value, and to continue taking positive steps forward. 

Remember that life only moves in one direction, forward.

One more thing, it is always better if you have someone you trust to open up with and talk about feelings and stuff. It could lessen the load you know. They won't necessarily be able to pull you out of the dark place you're in, but the light that spills in when they enter will at least show you which way the door is. Where you will choose whether to stay or to follow the light, wherever it leads you to. So what will it be?

Before I end this post let me finally announce that I'm starting another blog series besides from my Daily Dose. A lot of bloggers have this already and I kinda want to start one of my own. It's called Happy List, where I'll be sharing things or any event that makes and made me happy throughout the week or the month, It depends. Hopefully I'd get to know your own list of stuff behind that beautiful smile. I'd be happy to hear from you guys. Who knows maybe you can get something that would also make you happy from my list or vice versa. And since I've already announced it here,let me just add my first ever list of the year here.


1. MY OWN DOMAIN - I finally got my domain guys!  I know this blog isn't that much rn. But having my own domain made me hella happy. So I guess after a long time of deciding and arguing with my self, This has been one of the best decisions I have made.
