The Monday Grace Vol. 11

November 2, 2015

A link-up with Kisty’s Thankful Mondays, The Monday Grace basically aims to alleviate all that negative vibes and help in spreading good ones! These are things that I feel thankful for on the most dreaded day of the week.

October has officially ended (I know it was two days ago, but bear with me!) and a new month has started. Can’t believe there’s a few days left until Christmas and New Year! Oh, how days go by so fast.

On the first Monday of the month, I’d like to recount all the things I feel thankful for the past week!

  1. My Pinto Art Museum post won in PinoySecretFiles’ Submit Your Travel and Adventure article contest. I actually didn’t expect anything from it and I submitted for the sake of submitting, but who would have thought, right?
  2. The strength God gave me to endure this Monday. My head is in excruciating pain yet I still managed to finish all my tasks (and make this blog post).
  3. We got to visit my Aunt and Uncle in Muntinlupa over the weekend!
  4. Got asked to do a couple of write-ups for Eskwelahan Planner‘s launch!!! So stoked to be working again with them.
  5. So thankful for the month of October. It was my busiest month (to date) at work so far and though I felt pressured and stressed, I thank God for sustaining me.
  6. The mere fact that I didn’t gain weight over the past weeks of cheating (forgive me, Coaches). I weighed in earlier and found out that I didn’t gain a single pound (but I didn’t lose any either) so it’s still not good enough! Lol.
  7. I had a chill uke night last night. Just randomly played some songs. I missed nights like those.
  8. The number of people joining our BlogGirls Grand Holiday Giveaway! Haven’t joined yet? Here’s the link.
  9. OPM. OPM. OPM. I have so much love for OPM I can’t fully explain how much. So thankful that I have great bands to listen to (and a favorite band that’s really, really friendly)!
  10. My Dad treated my Mum and I to a massage last night! It’s been months since I last had one so I’m really thankful for that.

Also, the Online Bible Study small group I belong to (with Proverbs31) starts today so I’m really giddy about going through Unglued by Lysa Terkeurst.


How’s the first Monday of November treating you so far? 🙂

    I love people who has passion for our local music — genuine OPM! I am loving the indie scene right now, there are so many talented individuals with very unique sounds. And congrats on winning that contest, Ate Rej! 🙂

      Di ba!!! Huhuhu. I’m really grateful that social media gives us a way to talk to them directly and get to know them better.

    uh! your dad is so nice! can you tell him I need a massage too? haha seriously, i need a massage soon or else my whole body will shut down :/ I’m never fan of OPM because of how dramatic the songs are, well, it’s good that you like it 🙂

      Not all OPM songs are dramatic! Haha. Some are upbeat especially songs by bands. Get a massage soon! 😀
