Self Love 365 Project

It is supposed to be Self Love Day 201 today but I decided to take a break from this everyday happiness. I have been contemplating about going on a break but cannot push myself to do so. Today it is, I guess.

There are no major reasons for the break as I have been tremendously enjoying this therapeutic daily morning exercise. Its just that I wanted to go on a more personal pace with each square in my planner/art journal and I didn’t think it will be fitting to post them anymore.

Today, I will ride this journey alone. It is both exciting and frightening at the same time. But my heart says it is the right decision and more beautiful things will come out of it.

Thank you so much for riding with me on this journey. Your cheer and support are much appreciated. ❤

Day 200

It has been raining since yesterday in my side of the world but I have been feeling warm and perspiring all day. I think I’m experiencing hot flashes. Having been warned eight years ago that menopause will come early after my thyroid operation and maybe it begins….no worries though, I hydrate a lot and has a drink reminder on my phone. 🙂 All is well even when everyone else is wearing a jacket or a raincoat and I’d like to wear a bikini. 😀

Day 199

The past weekend was a whirlwind of emotions. I was both heart broken and frightened at the same time.

Last Saturday was my father’s 10th year passing anniversary. My husband accompanied me to the province to visit my Papa. I have not visited his grave for so many years because I carry him with me all the time. Ten years had passed and I still cry like it was just yesterday. I was crushed when he passed. As his primary caregiver I never lost hope but as his daughter, I was surrendering him to the Lord. The memories came back and I can only cry. I wept because my Papa was too young to leave us. I wept because I miss him terribly. But I know he is happier up there with the Lord. Pain free and with my Mama. I also wept for the times I needed and will be needing parental advise. Going through life an orphan is not easy. Even with my husband beside me, it will never the the same as when my parents are around to guide, help and provide wisdom. But such is the course of life and I have to stay strong, stand firm and let life be my teacher, my mentor and hope against hope that all will be blessed and according to His will.
