day 877 – christmas homecooking

enjoying a homemade dinner feast on christmas day. the food on the table shows my family has some proven chefs, and that’s not me, cause all i did was toss the salad. festive seasons like this reminds me that i am truly blessed with the people i am surrounded by, for all these people listen and help me through my many troubles and insecurities. but none more so, than those that share the tong genes, for they work tirelessly to guide me through no matter the situation. my life wouldn’t be the same without any one of you out thereĀ and tis the season to reflect and be thankful for all that i have. let it be known that each and every one of you have a place in my heart

celebrating one of the many special days of the year, but the person i celebrate it for and with doesn’t get any more important. happy birthday to my dearest mom, who works tirelessly to make each and every one of my day as smooth as it could be. a lot of times i overlook the little expressions and actions that could go a long way to making you realize how much you mean to me. do know that i appreciate every little thing you do for me and every moment spent together is quality time i cherish. and sometimes i just fail to express how i love you so. here’s to another great year ahead and many more to come. perfect way to make it my blog’s 800th day post. i have had a lot of pleasure writing all my posts and revisiting my posts to see where i have been and where i have come

day 727 – email outburst

wrote one of my most satisfying email ever today, in response to a parent’s complaint. all my thoughts flowed out in smooth sentences and said exactly what my thoughts were from the bottom of my heart. not only was i not rattled after receiving this, but i am glad she made this complaint. this only gave me the opportunity to voice my opinion or i would never realize how i truly felt about the principles of my teaching, and i stand by it

i have let this sit for too long so if this continues and i sense no resolution coming soon, don’t mind me if i suddenly explode out of my silence for the better or for the worse. i will not allow someone to disrespect me like that cause i am not a stepping stone just so you can find a reason to feel better about yourself
