Thoughtful Thoughts Sunday

via
I know I can be superficial at times. Shoes, clothes, bags and accessories can easily make me happy, and there have been times when a spontaneous shopping trip has cheered me up a great deal. But even I know and acknowledge that there are so many things more precious than even the most expensive pair of shoes in the world. These are things that cannot be bought --- things like [true] friendship, or love, or loyalty. I don't choose friends based on their outfits and I don't choose to be a loyal friend to someone on account of what I can get from being his or her 'friend'.

Perks and gifts are great, but if I [as a blogger] will be stripped of them, it wouldn't make me feel so bad. I started blogging not because of any of these but because I wanted to find a venue where I could express myself, especially since my previous job was so removed from my creative side. Now that I have a job where I can express this creative side more freely, I will still maintain this blog because I do not treat writing here as a chore. It's not easy to be honest about one's weaknesses, but yes, I admit there have been instances when I got too hard on myself, and yes there have been times when so-called 'fame' got to my head, but now when I feel the signs creeping again I make it a point to immediately snap myself back to the fact that I am merely a speck in this wonderful web of woven digital records of every blog-keeping person's lives.

At the end of the day, I am just a simple girl who likes oversharing pretty little things, but I want to live for so much more than stifling trivialities.

This is true.

Recently got employed by a company in the health an beauty industry.  And to continue blogging, I should not accept free stuff or go to events or post advertorials anymore. And I was perfectly fine with it. I was more afraid of losing my blog and true enough, I didn't feel so bad.

Thank you Bea, that was so nice of you to say :) But no, I hope you don't think that your writing is bad compared to mine. If only you can read the things I've written in my old diaries haha! Just keep on reading and writing, those two go hand in hand :)

nice sharing of thoughts Krissy and yes I agree while those are pretty little things, there's more important things beyond that. And cannot be bought. I saw in one of your post that you're from HSBC.. i used to be as well (been based in PBcom and Alabang).. Have a nice week =)
