28 Grateful Days: Escaping for a Movie on a Monday

Just like most of you, I had a busy Monday. I was able to tick off four major items on my to-do list before noon, though, so I allowed myself to sneak out for lunch and a movie with my mom. If you’ve liked my page on Facebook, my latest status message will tell you what we watched. It was relaxing and fun, and the afternoon was made more comical by the fact that it seemed like the entire senior citizen population of Alabang was watching the same movie that day. We were literally surrounded by lolos and lolas.

A day like today is definitely something to be thankful for. I love that, as a WAHM, I can disconnect in the middle of the day and go do something enjoyable, after I’ve made sure that all the urgent things have been taken care of, of course. Like I said at the beginning of the month, I have been really making an effort to see the sunny side of life these past few days, and it really does make each day more fun. The highlights of my month so far have been:

  • Paying off and cutting up my HSBC Credit Card (super blessed with this one)
  • Watching two movies within a period of four days – Lego Movie with the little boy last Friday, and another one today with mom
  • Listening to my son tell me all about his school field trip
  • Receiving my free blog critique from Martine (which was so amazing that I decided to take it a step further and sign up for blog coaching as a birthday gift to myself)
  • Hanging out with my best girlfriends and seeing one of them again for the first time in four years
  • Having Mozart chocolates from Austria again for the first time in a long time
  • Catching the Malaysian lion dance champions’ performance at Resorts World with the boys (they really were SO good!)
  • Shipping off my World Moms Blog Fairy Moms gift (I hope it arrived at its destination already)
  • Being invited to join a #BetterMe session with Coach Pia and the SoMoms (which I will be blogging about soon)
  • My early Valentine’s day date with MrC
  • Shopping for my little boy’s first Valentine
  • Finally finishing Season 3 of Homeland with MrC
  • And actually being able to complete the first two weeks of the 48-week Photo Challenge that I joined

Isn’t life lovelier when you choose to see the good stuff instead of the negative things that happen? And it doesn’t have to be something major all the time. There’s lots of joy in the little things too.

What are your February highlights so far? 🙂
