I am not the most religious person you'll meet. I miss hearing Sunday Mass sometimes and I don't read the Bible, but I can say that I have this personal relationship with God. I believe, respect and have fear in Him. I talk to him a lot. I ask forgiveness for my sins, I thank Him for all the blessings that I continuously receive and I ask Him for help and guidance in everything. My September was not that good, I was mostly stressed and depressed last month so I was hoping and praying that October would be different. And guess what, it's just the middle of October and a lot of good things has already happened.

Almost two weeks ago, I was in Intramuros so I thought of dropping by San Agustin Church. My plan was just to say a little prayer but the mass was just about to start when I came in, so I decided to finish it instead. It was the first time, after such a long time, that I was able to say a prayer at that church. I felt really good after the mass. It was a different feeling when I left the church. I felt like a lot of good things would happen, and I was right!

Last Thursday, I finally got that one thing that I really wanted! I've been wanting to get that ever since I laid my eyes on it. I did all the researching and praying just so I could get it and I did! I know it might sound materialistic, but believe me when I say that after soooo many years, it was the first time that I felt I really wanted something! And I felt like I needed to have it! And I swore that I would get it! HAHA! I will make a different blog entry about it next time! If you're already following me on Instagram (@ishmoi) and Twitter (@ishmoi), you probably already know what I'm talking about (or not, lol).
Aside from my material want, I was praying for something for months now. And just when I was already ready to accept wholeheartedly that I would never get what I was praying for, I/we received the good news! Good things come to those who wait and have faith! I really am so thankful! I wish I could share it to all of you, but I better not to. I don't want to jinx it!

And lastly (for now!), another reason to be thankful is that I got accepted to this job that I wanted! The reason why I was in Intramuros almost two weeks ago is because I was scheduled for a job interview. I wanted the work because Intramuros is near our place so it wouldn't be that much of a hassle with regards to transportation and also, I LOVE INTRAMUROS!
I know there are still a lot of good things that will happen. But for now, I will continue to be thankful for all the blessings that I received and will continue to patiently wait and work hard for the good things in the future that I would get! Let's all have a GREAT week, everyone!
