My Attitude of Gratitude

I thank The Lord for finally allowing me to BLOG. I have spent basically the entirety of my life writing, and I just know that this is what I will keep doing for the rest of my life. So today I also carve for myself a small hollow in Cyber space, to share the things that I love to do and the things I do best! I hope that through this web log, my family and friends somewhat experience the happiness and contentment brimming within, as I am so thankful for where I am now, knowing that I am slowly getting to where God has promised me, while enjoying and being thankful for every single thing and happening in my life!

Where did all this goodness start? When I became a mom of course. This was four years ago, back in 2009 and it was something I did not expect to happen to me so early. I was 22 when I had my son, Godric Matthew. I always knew I was going to have him, but just not this soon. I was driven, ambitious and aggressive but driving 'round in circles. Back then I would push so hard, knock on all doors but it was only when he came, that the Fruit, so to speak,of my efforts, finally blossomed...

He came, put some direction in my life, and like a big fat Angel, punched a hole through heaven and now in my arms, just let the blessings flow right after him.

This Blog - like a child who only hones his gifts, talents and character in time, will for now, take in the form of who I am. I know most blogs only specialize in fashion, some are all about gastronomic adventures and new dining finds... But for now this will take me shape and wear the many hats that I wear too - as an Event Host (on weekends)  a Leasing Manager for the #1 Company in the Philippines, a frustrated chef/foodie/food critic, a traveller, an aspiring entrepreneurial Champ and most of all - a Proud Mommy! I love to travel the world with my son and let him ride on my back as long as I can!!!

I hope that in one way or another I inspire you with my writing, my stories and #Selfies as I send you some good vibes from where I am. Life may not be perfect for me, but I make it a point to brim with Heavenly Energy and Indefatigable Good Vibes and Optimism. Life has sent storms my way, but here I am standing stronger and more Faithful to God!

This is for you, my Son, as everything I do is for you. I love you, my Godric Matthew! God chose to bless me profusely through you, my Greatest Blessing!
