i really hate ruining this day as harry and i turned 24 months today but all the negativity at work has really gotten to me and has somehow brought me down. all because they were all expecting to get something which is not necessarily something owed to them by the company. what i hate is all the complaining. as if they’re just waiting for the answer to fall from heaven — or in this case, the ceiling since we are confined in the office. nobody has approached me about it and even asked for help. it’s as if it’s their fight and complaining and being negative is their way of solving it. negativity really brings me down. it tugs on me like an anchor and honestly, it gives me back pains (from all the stress of being bothered by it)… i mean, not getting involved personally at work is easy to say but i can’t help it — especially when i can hear them ranting all the time. threatening resignation? what the….
there…i’ve let it all out. one thing i learned from my college best friend is patience. and to not complain but proactively step-up and allow things to happen and evolve. to be positive. and think that everything happens for a reason. i wish people can learn to be positive. see, for once, the bigger picture. be damn thankful.
and learn to let go.

to my honeybee, i’m sorry for rambling.
happy anniversary!
the past two years have been a blessing.

    i'm with you about complaining… maglagot pud ko ana. but hey, happy anniversary to you and your love! you look dashing in that mustard dress btw!



  20. Hey Gizelle 🙂

    …we all have those mornings/noons/evenings….I had MY “morning,” but was able to bounce back with a little laughter, and positive thinking (thinking on how good it feels not to be MAD–if that makes any sense). And you're right everything does happen for a reason…sometimes to cause us to move from a situation or TO a situation. As it's said, everything has it's season..don't worry, everything will mold itself into the proper place, and you'll know yours within it 🙂

    Stay beautiful, smile BIG 🙂


  21. Btw, CUTE dress!!!


  22. Jen says:

    Happy Anniversary to you and your guy. Hope you have a lovely night and can forget the stresses of work.

    I'm going through something that sounds very similar at my own workplace and my only advice is take a step back, a deep breath and put up a wall between you and the stress. That's how I'm coping with it. Hope you feel more positive about it soon. xx

  29. I love your dress! Negativity and complaining is awful. I really dislike it when people have high expectations–I mean, shouldn't we just try to have an attitude of thankfulness? I feel I have an awful lot to be thankful for (even though there is more I could want!). 🙂
