Year End Thank You (V10)

"Nothing in the universe can stop you from letting go and starting over. - Guy Finley"

I've been writing "year end thank you" posts for the past 10 years. I started on my humble tumblog and have since migrated to this blog. 2016 was a tough year for me but 2017 was a lot better. As always, there were a few bumps in the road but nothing that I couldn't handle. I used to do bulleted lists of who I'd like to say thank you to but I decided on doing things a little differently this year by saying thank you as a whole...

Thank you to everyone who has stuck with me through thick and thin. Thank you for seeing past my brokenness and my faults. Thank you for accepting my flaws. Thank you for pushing me to reach my goals and my dreams. Thank you for supporting my decisions no matter how atrocious they can be at time. Thank you for putting up with my moods and my tantrums. Thank you for allowing me to express myself especially when it comes to my creativity. Thank you for allowing me to pursue my baking business even if the economy is still at a crisis. Thank you for always lending a helping hand. Thank you for always being a phone call away. Thank you for seeing me even when I couldn't even see myself. Thank you for lifting me up whenever I feel small. Thank you for appreciating all the little things I do. Thank you for loving me unconditionally.

You already know who you guys are.
Muchisimas Gracias.
Daghang Salamat.
Maraming Salamat.
Magsukol.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Comfort Food

It's another rainy day in Zamboanga. It got me thinking about how nice it would be to just huddle up in bed under my thick warm blanket and just be lazy. How I wish I could but today is also "errands" day before the weekend hits us so I had to haul my butt off to several banks to finish transactions. While on the way to the bank I started thinking about one word. COMFORT.

What brings you comfort? Lots of people would say a hug from their loved one, an extra hour of sleep, a warm cup of coffee, a foot spa session, an hour or two of body massage and a lot of other things... Personally, one of the things that give me comfort is FOOD. Hence the term, "comfort food". Today I'd like to share some of the comfort food that really hits the spot. *smiles*

Back From The Dead. (?)

So much has been going on in my personal life that blogging had to take a back seat. First big thing that happened is that I finally got over a big heartbreak. Next is that I finally opened my office-kitchen for my small home based baking business, Sugar Works. Also I discovered the wonderful world of NuSkin. It's been a lot to process and I just didn't have the extra energy to blog anymore. I didn't want my posts to seem "forced" so I just "abandoned" it altogether. I admit it wasn't a proper way to say goodbye and for that I'm regretful.

Another reason I stopped blogging is because I strayed away from my first blog niche. I used to be a beauty blogger. Emphasis on the words USED TO. For a time, I dabbled in "personal" posts, some "food review" posts, and even some "lifestyle" posts but nothing really clicked. I guess I grew out of beauty blogging a bit and wanted to try out new niches but failed disastrously. Right now all I want to do is write. I'm not really sure about what but I hope that I find out eventually.

I have some posts lined up but I'm still thinking about whether I should publish them or not. The big question is, am I ready to come back to blogging? What are your thoughts about writer's block? Have you ever blogged then stopped then started blogging again? Tell me what you think.

So much is going on and I can't wait to share it with all my dear readers when the time is right... Everything is slowly falling into place & it's getting quite exciting... I'll try to be update more often, I do have several drafts to finish but for now, tata!~ <3
