The Perks of Being MePosted: May 23, 2007
I read somewhere that whenever you feel down, you should think about why you enjoy being you. I don’t remember where I got this but I was doing just the exact same thing yesterday. After a Birthday Dinner Celebration at Casper & Gambini’s and a brief coffee session at Starbucks last night, I went home and started thinking about what I enjoy being Me.
Although I have frequent Bad Days, and I frequently hate being me. Sometimes I do thank God that he made me as me and that I have some qualities that I enjoy. (I should’ve written this post while I was in the moment last night, it was much better in my head)
Its funny how even during my Pre-Blogging Days, most of my friends knew what was happening in my life and they are always involved somehow. I would always be on the phone spilling my guts out to another friend about the latest drama in my life. And being the drama queen that I am, ofcourse!!! Siyempre enjoy din naman ako that I had someone on my side. I enjoy that I have friends who always hear my side of the story, and even when I am not right, they do not blame or judge me.
I always get complimented about my skin. Hindi ako nagyayabang at this moment ha? I do have nice skin. Thanks to genes that is. I do not use any special product. The most I do for my skin is Soap and once a week I scrub my face with Apricot Scrub. I passed through teenage acne, I suffered about 3 years of acne and then they just disappeared one by one. Until I had clear pimple free skin. And now, even without products, I have clear skin. I do enjoy it, because for me, the best accessory is your clean, clear skin.
I know I am not hot. I mean good looking hot. Lets face reality. But I do get my share of admiring stares and glances. I enjoy it. I get flattered ofcourse, but I got used to it already. Who doesn’t enjoy admiration, but its the stalkers I don’t enjoy. I’ve used my looks for my benefit a lot of times already. I’ve used it before and I’ll use it again. And I’m not ashamed of it. It’s part of being me. And I enjoy it.
I’m a friendly type of person. I like making friends and I enjoy having many friends. Although my being friendly has caused a few problems in the past like I sometimes trust a person too much even if I just met him. I still have not lost faith in people.
As I am writing this post, my mood has improved a bit. I don’t feel sad anymore. I know I have a lot to be thankful for and I still enjoy being me.
