Beautiful Sunday # 429 - stronger

The tasks are getting stronger. 

I've read a number of self-help books emphasizing the need to move out of our comfort zone. We need to be challenged or venture on things we never knew. It's the only way to grow and become a better person. Easy to say, hard to do.

Beautiful Sunday # 428 - Frustrations

It's been a month since classes started. The teaching task is manageable. My office work is a different story. The tasks are getting stronger. One task down, there will be another set of tasks to come. It feels as if I'm not accomplishing anything. While I appreciate the privilege and safety of working from home, I feel that my productivity is not getting better. I feel disappointed and frustrated.

Beautiful Sunday # 427 - Stronger


Things I'm grateful from two weeks ago

Finally securing a schedule to visit my dentist - I finally had my dental cleaning and filling last week. It was a relief to address my teeth discoloration. My worries are gone until December, both for my teeth and hair. I wish everything gets better before the year ends.

Beautiful Sunday # 426 - Last for August

As you can see, I'm addicted to dried or preserved flowers the past weeks.

It all started when I saw an upsurge of Instagram based sellers offering flower arrangements. I later learned, they weren't fresh flowers. I was wondering where do these sellers source preserved flowers. To my surprise, the popular flower market in Manila also experienced transformation. Most sellers from the Dangwa Flower Market are no longer selling the usual fresh, expensive and imported tulips, roses, carnations and the like. The absence of commercial flights and restrictions on domestic travel resulted to the difficulty of securing fresh flowers. The longevity of preserved and dried flowers also answers the problem of unsold and withered flowers. As you know these days, customer traffic is an unusual sight on stores selling non-essential goods.
