I Just Started a Gratitude Journal

January 23, 2013 Leave a comment

This happened over a week ago.  I was staying at my aunt’s for the weekend and guess what?  Both the Internet and cable were down!  I called AT&T and asked if they could fix it as soon as possible.  You could just imagine how hard it was… no Internet or TV for the weekend!  You should have seen my aunt’s face (hehehe!) when she found out that the tech can’t make it til Sunday.  Which means no TFC for a couple of days.  Good thing we’re scheduled to leave for Harrah’s San Diego the next morning.

So what to do when there’s nothing else to do?  I guess the next best thing to do is to run or read a book or a magazine.  And there I was, reading an old O Magazine.  While browsing through the pages an article about starting a Gratitude Journal got my attention.  Oprah goes on by saying that writing at least 5 things that you’re grateful for each day can help you appreciate the small things and life in general.  That makes sense to me!  I must admit, the past couple of months I’ve been so busy and I feel like I haven’t been thankful of the small things.  They just don’t have the same effect as they used to.

Last January 12, after reading the article I decided to start my Gratitude Journal… and I’ve done it everyday since then.  It’s nice to read my entries when I’m free or when I just want to go back and think of the small things that made me happy.  I suggest you start making one too. 🙂


Jessica is now part of Idol’s Top 3

Jessica Sanchez

Jessica Sanchez

Staying true to the vow she made in her memorable performance of “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going,” Jessica Sanchez is staying as she made it to the Top 3 of “American Idol” on Thursday night (Friday morning in Manila).

She is, however, going back to her home city of San Diego, when she makes her “hometown hero” appearance, a tradition for the show’s Top 3 contestants.

Sanchez has now matched the success of Filipino-American Jasmine Trias, who also made it to the Top 3 during the third season of the hit US TV show.

But unlike Trias, who drew negative comments from “Idol” fans after she outlasted R&B singer LaToya London to make the Top 3 — then judge Simon Cowell bluntly told the Hawaii-based teener that she had gone as far she could — Sanchez was not only expected to make the Top 3, TV critics are now predicting a finals showdown between the 16-year-old and judges favorite Joshua Ledet, who was also declared safe on Thursday.
