Swabeng Thoughts: What am I thankful for this 2012.

As 2012 comes to a close, the world would still continue as prophecies about the end of the world should wait for indefinite time. There are a lot of things I should be thankful of be it good or bad. Here are some things that I am thankful for this year. 

1. My wife and daughter's undying love and understanding: They are my number one priority right now. They are my source of inspiration whenever I need it to keep me going. They keep me in check though at times, my temper goes out of control. I love the both of them with all my heart and I'll do anything to make sure they're well taken care of until I grow old.


2.  Blogger friends mostly from FBW: I never imagined that my blog would be read not just from people here in the Philippines, but from around the globe as well. Since I started joining their comment exchanges and G+'s, somehow I learned a thing or two from their comments. Its nice to know that there are fellow bloggers who started from a personal niche to where they're good at now. Also the drama involved as well like some petty catfights that made me get some popcorn as I read those comments =P (I kinda learned from it too). 

3. All of my former colleagues from the companies I've worked with: Thanks for helping me to be the person I am now. I know where I would be heading to in my career as I'm preparing to face it head on. To some who removed me from their social media sites (facebook) I felt kinda sad but on one end, life goes on without you anyway =P. 


4. Family and friends that I've been with for years: Despite moving to Manila, separating me from the rest made me realize that they are still there for me. Its really good to know that despite the distance, they are just a text or a facebook away thanks to modern technology. 

A few days before 2013, that's something I look forward to. ^_^

  8. The petty cat fights! I get your drift Mark!
    It pays to be a silent reader sometimes, especially that there are a lot of FBW members who are really passionate about what they do and in doing the right thing.
    Glad I met you in this group!

  17. We should always be thankful for what we have and never give in to the temptation of comparing our lives with others. We have everything we have in our family, friends, and everyone that makes our life complete.

  18. It's sad that people you used to know unfriended you on facebook, but that's the reality of social network. at the end of the day, you know who your real friends are, and that's something to be thankful for :)
