Starting Over

I have forgiven someone and it feels great!

So great that when I was asked to do something that I didn’t like, I was okay with it. I didn’t know why I wasn’t complaining or being angry about it. It’s like…whatever is coming to my plate, I’ll just sapu and do it. Maybe I’m immuned to it, maybe I know there isn’t anything I can do to change it immediately, maybe I’m just tired, or I know there is hope at the end of the tunnel, I just got to hang in there, do the things I don’t like till I get to do things that I like. I hope I don’t have to wait too long because I really want it.

I had a very nice Korean meal last night. Stew tofu in Kim Chi Soup with Rice. The kim chi soup wasn’t too spicy, it was just nice. So nice that I was glowing inside. There’s something about eating food that you like that makes you go warm and happy inside. The rice wasn’t just normal plain rice, looks something like multi-grain rice but not quite multi-grain…let’s just call it healthy rice. I made sure I finish every single bit of rice, that was how much I loved the rice being served. Then, we had korean pancakes. Also yummy. Then you wash it all down with Dong Suh tea. That I call…a contented meal.

I woke up this morning, just in time to get ready and to walk to the dentist. I need to get my wisdom tooth removed by surgery but that can wait and I really don’t want to think about it now. Other than that, the dentist replaced a new power chain for my upper set of braces and changed the direction of the elastics to move the teeth in a different direction.

As I was walking out from the clinic, a friend called, asking if I’d be free for lunch. Even though I have initially planned to just stay home and clean the house, I agreed to meet her because it’s been awhile. She treated me to lunch to my surprise, gave me a belated birthday present. She said she had to treat me because she still remembered me driving out to get a cake for her on her birthday more than a year go. She said she was touched. The thing is I don’t remember all these details anymore and she still does ..so I guess it meant something to her.

But before that, I was spending time at the bookstore and I saw a book that I must get. The eyes saw it and couldn’t take off it. A new book by Tony Parsons (my favourite author in the world!!) titled “Starting Over”. I have all his previous books so this is definitely a must-buy and I’ll be reading it tonight itself. It would be my dinner. And I thought “Starting Over” applies to my current situation…that is what I need to do.

Then, after lunch, it was window shopping session which was a bad idea really …because I ended up buying things. Bought a cleanser and a mask. And I learnt something new today. BB cream…or in long Blemish Balm Cream. Said to do wonders but I was able to resist the temptation but the thing is I’m still thinking about it now. hahaha

So the best way to save money is just to stay at home. Really.
