  2. In my sixteen years of living in the world mixed with pink and black colors, I realized that there is more to life than being the perfect girl – beauty, brains, money, fame. I live and celebrate for my accomplishments leading to the happiness of not only myself but also of others’ welfare. I don’t need to be a movie star to be well-liked by a hundred people. I don’t need to be a genius to have a keen knowledge to serve the needy. What matters most is that I live life to the fullest and I’m loving it no matter the circumstances are.

    For me, celebration is not just balloons and confetti galore. It is not just the reap of all the things you’ve worked hard for. With all the failures and challenges I’ve encountered in the past, at first I thought I wouldn’t survive them. But looking back at what has happened, I came to a realization that everything was the Lord’s way to be strong and never give up. I realized that there’s a colorful and gregarious rainbow after the rainfall. I should give thanks to all of my blessings and downfalls. With the life I’m living right now, I’m happy to say that I am a teenager bringing the best to everything. Plus, the color pink is my symbol to hope and courage.

  3. A year ago, I lost a wonderful woman in my life. My closest aunt and godmother left us last year after a long battle with breast cancer. It was a very heartrending moment. I felt pain of losing someone I didn’t get to say goodbye for the last time.

    After her passing away, I realized how she made a big difference to my life. How she became my icon of strength. And that realization is more than enough for me to celebrate as my family and I observed her one-year death anniversary. We offered assortment of pink flowers, as pink stands as the international symbol of breast cancer awareness.

    As the Christmas season became too close, I couldn’t help but feel sad and missed her dearly. I would wear pink on Christmas day not just to heal whatever grief I still have but also to show people around me that I care about them.

  4. In life there’s certain area in which we can say We’re a winner. Me? I just realized now that after all the failures I’ve had made in the past especially in taking board exam, I was hopeless then, so depressed and even wanted to give up. Here I am now, a Registered Nurse after all I just realized I’m still lucky with having the family who supported me when I felt hopeless, and didn’t left me when I felt that I’m in the “darkness moments”. I Thank God that He still continued to guide me, made me strong and feel so great of course for the blessing of having a Professional License. It’s really worth the wait. Indeed, Patience is a virtue. It’s worth celebrating for simply because after all I was able to gain my confidence again and all those bad times have made me become stronger now with the help of my friends and family and most especially with the Lord, our God. With Pink, it symbolizes acceptance & contentment. Definitely it’s now who I am I learned to accept things and feel so contented with all those blessings I had. 🙂

  10. Me and my boyfriend will be celebrating our 3rd year anniversary. We made plans of throwing out a party not because its our 3rd year but because last month, Oct. 08,2010 he proposed to me and right then and there, I said yes not because I’m excited but because I met and known this guy for quite a long time, we’ve been classmates since high school till college and we have the same group of friends, and after graduating from college, it is where our love story began. And for me, this is the time to celebrate, this is the time wherein I’ll be on my own feet, being totally separated from my family and be more independent and lastly, I’ll be starting my own family. I am so excited yet nervous and every second of it freaks me out. Guess this is still normal. As of right now, we’re still planning about the wedding, like the location, how many guests, the cake, the reception, the church and lastly the motif. I wanted a pink motif because I totally love the color pink and it is so me. Pink provides feelings of caring, tenderness, self-worth love, and acceptance and that symbolizes us by the time we get married. It is said that it is the universal color of love. If I’ll win this BDJ Planner, it would be a wedding gift to myself and it would be very useful with all the plans for the wedding, paperwork deadlines and all. I wanted the BJD Planner to be part of my planning and be the witness of everything that is going on with my life. 🙂 Thanks

  11. For me, celebrating your birthday is the most important or the most generous thing you can share. Not just because you’ll be receiving gifts but you received the most expensive and money can’t buy gift, another year of LIFE. Giving you a chance to live to the fullest, to be with someone you love, to explore and enjoy God’s gift. Living here on earth is not forever and it’s not on our will to say or tell when are we going to leave. I’ve realized this when my father died. My family and I didnt expect it to be so soon, its tragic and so full of misery. From then on I cherish LIFE and treat it as seems there’s no tomorrow, live to the fullest and live the best way I can. By being good to others, doing what God’s will,its like painting /decorating the world with pink flowers and pink stars.Making the world pretty and pink 🙂

  12. Having a daughter is worth celebrating life for. I’ve friends who have tried in vain to get pregnant for years to no avail. I was blessed with the gift to bring life to this world and this brings me immense joy. Seeing her day after day, seeing how she is turning out to be an honest and honorable is an experience that I would not trade for anything.

  13. “What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating for?”

    for me having my mother on my side since when im a baby til i have my own babies is worth celebrating for. thats why when we celebrate her 60th bday we make it a point that we used her favorite color as her theme, of course its PINK like her name ROSE.

    we want her to feel that shes not getting older and we want her on our side always. we love you mom.

  14. As I grow up, I am becoming more sensitive about what Is happening around me including the whole world. It is still unclear to me but now I am slowly realizing what does LIFE really mean. I am already at the eighteenth year of existence and it makes me smile when I remember my childhood days where my favorite color is still PINK like the other girls out there. Memories are really important, whether its happy or sad. They came to my life as a part of it and I really treasure them. Today, I’m enjoying the most of my life with my friends and my family; making every moment memorable. I want to write down those memories so I can still remember them forever in my existence in this world. Cherish the wonderful memories cause they are never coming back again. And I thank God for everthing! THANKS! 🙂

  15. “What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating for?”

    I realized that destiny has it’s own way of manifesting itself in a lot of ways no matter how we deny its control over us. Before, I used to think that it’s always up to our choice on how we live our lives but as I grow old and reality begins to take a bite, it made a conviction that things are not always as it seems.

    Consider for instance those children who were born with birth defects, they do not chose to be that way yet they were born that way or those who were born only to be abandoned and left to die; or those who are born to families so poor they sold their children to prostitution; or left wandering the streets to beg and fend off for themselves; or have already resigned themselves to oblivion because nobody cares for them.

    I am glad that my fate was never as harsh as that. While I am not born with a silver spoon, I can still eat 3-5 times a day regularly and at my discretion. Though I’m nearing 30, I still have not been confined to the hospital for any illness, moreso, be diagnosed for one. While I do not possess the money to buy the expensive things that I want at an instant, I know how to plan and make it possible in the years to come. My parents did not pamper us when we were growing up, but they thought us how to survive living and to dream and to inspire us to reach for our goals. Both of them are still with us in the best of health.

    To many, this would seem so regular and does not stand out. But you will never know what fate awaits you. In the circle of life, you will never know when you will be on top or when you will be under it and nothing remains permanent except change.

    While this may seem trivial, I am glad that I can experience this level of comfort and have fewer problems compared with others. I am grateful for the things that I have and for giving me the skills to make things possible for me in the future. That for me is worth everything to celebrate right now.

  16. What I have realized in my life worth celebrating for is “Waking up every day with a big smile on my face knowing that my wonderful family is at my side no matter what and Lord Jesus Christ is guiding us. And realizing that I have a wonderful life, I have a roof to live, clothes to wear, I eat three times a day, I have friends, and of course I have a Great Family. Every moment counts, every laughter, every talks, every fight.. it counts and it’s worth celebrating.. And of course, one more thing to celebrate.. I am a Woman, my mom is too and my sister, it just came to my mind that pink can give lots of meaning like the breast cancer awareness, or maybe a feminism.. let’s help one another.. let’s keep Philippines or the whole world free from breast cancer I hope it’s possible! Let’s pray then.. =)

  17. I started the year being on my own far away from my family who are living in the province. The days were dark and I did not have anyone there for me. I had to learn to be independent, responsible and thrifty, too! I was on a hunt for the perfect job that would help me fulfill my dreams in life. Thankfully, I found one. In the end, I gained one of the most precious gifts God can ever give me, Friends. Friends who cheer you up and listen to your problems. I am now not alone. I am not living in the dark anymore , Im living it pink! And God painted it! Now that is worth celebrating for!

  18. i got pregnant last year and it was ‘unplanned’. my husband and i were worried about it cause were not ready for the baby, but when i gave birth and we saw our delicate and tiny charmng baby girl at the nursery, my heart almost stop beating because of happiness and over flowing love that i have for her. i saw her little eyes slowly opening, her lips mouthing and her chubby pink cheeks.. all worries are gone. my husband wanted a baby girl so when we saw our baby wearing a pink name bracelet(pink means ‘girl’ blue for boys) he almost cry. we realized that worries should not consume us and we have to be strong for our little angel. thank God for giving us a gift that is worth celebrating for and realizations that we will carry on through our lives.

  19. It is true that big things are worth celebrating for and we generally refer to those special events and occasions like holidays, birthdays, graduations and weddings, but i realized that there are too many things that I’ve overlooked in my entire life that are much worth celebrating.

    Life is more about appreciating the little things and happiness in our life, we don’t actually have to wait for our big accomplishments for us to rejoice, in fact, everyday is worth celebrating for, there are lots of reasons to celebrate each day in pink and we don’t need to be extravagant. As you wake up each day is actually a miracle that we should thank for, get your pen and paper then write your countless blessings you receive everyday, friends, family, new learnings, healthy life and many more, simple things that often ignored, but when combined, they are the biggest blessings that molded us for who we are now. so we should be celebrating every moment, life is too short to waste our life unhappy,

    I remember one of my favorite quotes from the movie Kung Fu Panda where Oogway said “Yesterday is a history, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift, that is why it is called present”, a lesson to be learnt to all of us, past cannot be changed and we don’t live in the future so act now, live today and celebrate.

  20. What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating?

    There are so many things to celebrate right now..
    ♥ I found true love through M.C., it has been a long seven years since we met..and hopefully things gonna work out fine.. yup.. i feel pink at the moment.. (seven years ago when we first met, it was way back 2003, in my 4th year highschool days, weren’t classmates, not even schoolmates, their school teamed up with our school during basketball leagues.., and yes after the long seven years, we met again, and yup.. tru intercompany basketball league..again.. he’s the MVP of my life) ♥
    ♥ I’ve gained new friends & gotten close to some really great people ♥
    There is definitely a bright side to my friendship issue 🙂 my friends were still there for me.. eventhough i made a lot of mistakes in my life. that i was almost ashamed to face them.. yet true friends accept us for being us..
    ♥ Struggled with personal issues♥
    Currently I feel good & Iam… not quite happy, but content enough with the way I look. But about a month ago, when I looked in the mirror, I was just completely disgusted with my reflection. I felt very thin & ugly, and would pile on the makeup. Now I’ve eased up on the makeup and no longer wanna cry when I see my reflection. I’m in a better & happier place 🙂
    ♥ more time with family ♥
    after my dreadful past relationship that almost tore me apart (3 years of hell with the ex –> he’s in dubai, suffering from a hard time finding a job, i think that is his KARMA) now i have more time to spend with my family and i am happy with that
    ♥ finally ive moved on ♥
    i have been in a bad relationship, yup.. that almost drain me.. inside and out.. i still thank God for giving me my family, friends and MC.. (those years ive been with him.. really made me think what i have done to my self.. i almost lose my self confidence, it made me weaker.. and made me filled with anger) almost a year had passed and i have finally moved on a step forward.. and i wont look back anymore.. i have learned my lessons from those mistakes.. from my dark side.. being in black.. is almost over.. and now im painting the town pink ^_^ i knew God would be always there for me.. and so my family and friends.. and so my MC.. (were gonna celebrate our 10th Monthsary tomorrow– “love you bear” thank you for being there for me and for accepting me for being me..)

    i was celebrating life.. today and will celebrate it everyday.. for giving me a second chance to correct all the bad things that happened to my life..

    hugs and kisses

  21. There is more to life than drinking pink lemonade…

    For us to live our lives to the fullest, we just can’t lean and sit back and wait as the world passes us by. We need to grab opportunities and take care of the blessings we have received, and share them with others so that more and more will come our way. We also need to stop looking at the world through rose-colored, pink-framed, heart-shaped glasses.

    🙂

  22. my life with tone began with pink ..(actually my motiff in my wedding was pink ;p)

    7 years ago, i met this uber snob guy when i was an intern in st.luke’s. we didn’t really notice that we already fell in love with each other the day our eyes met.we have our ups and downs but our love just grew stronger.
    october is our most memorable month because this month we will be celebrating our 6th year anniversary.with our 3 adorable monsters of course :p this is really worth celebrating for ;p

    oh by the way, did i mention that his very first gift to me was a pink pillow with a stuffed toy on it? pink is definitely my color ;p

  23. “What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating for?”
    I have realized that the day when we’d moved in here in our new pink place is worth celebrating for. By the way this house has a touch of pink it’s my favorite color. This pink house is a gift. We have to celebrate it yearly. I thought that accepting this place will be a disaster for me and my family but it turned out really nice so far. I also feel blessed because I feel complete now. Thanks to my former enemy. She’s a blessing now in my life.

  24. One thing that is worth celebrating for in my life is the day when my sister and I had this beautiful talk. It had been a year when me and my sister didn’t talk because of a little misunderstanding. There were so many celebrations that we’d missed together. I really missed all of those. Half of my life had missed those important events. Now that we’re ok I guess we need to celebrate that unforgettable day of our lives.

  25. “What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating for?”

    Upon reading the details of this contest, the word PINK really struck me. It is only then that I realized how this dainty color played many important roles in my life. As a child and until now, PINK has been my ultimate fave among all the variety of colors. I remember, as a child, pink is always my color preference for almost everything. PInk dress, pink bag, pink shoes, I just can’t get enough of pink! It’s color just fascinate me! This color is also the reason why I developed my fondness to the character of Hello Kitty! I remember, Hello Kitty used to be red, but the moment it changes its color, I already become a fan of Hello Kitty! And until now that I am married and has two beautiful girls, my fascination to this color continues… go check the wardrobe of my two princesses – almost all their clothes are PINK! I’m just so glad that both of them love this color too!
    Pink – this color really brings out the femininity in me and of my two kiddos! 🙂

  26. oh wow! I’m so overwhelmed by the many responses and many celebrations! If I were to join this contest, I’d say, this will be my celebration – Helping people realize that there are many things we can celebrate on, even the most ordinary things that bring a big impact on our lives. 🙂 oh boy, I would have a hard time picking a winner!

  27. “What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating for?”

    As I look at my one-year old toddler everyday, I realize that the gift of life is worth celebrating for. In five months time, I’ll be celebrating for another bundle of joy. Hopefully, my baby turns out to be healthy baby girl so I can welcome her with everything PINK. And what better way to track her everyday progress than with a Belle de Jour planner.

  28. “What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating for?”

    Every moment of it! Everyday, when I wake up knowing that God loves me and has blessed me with the kindest parents and sweetest sisters, I can’t help but feel that everyday is a celebration. I have learned to appreciate every little thing around me–the pink flowers in my Mom’s garden, our cute puppies, supermarket bonding time with my sisters, Dad driving me wherever I need to go…There’s an endless list of things to be thankful for. And I have learned that monumental things aren’t the only ones that calls for a celebration. Every single day is worthy to be celebrated.

  29. When I am still pregnant, my husband (which is my boyfriend at that time) was not beside me, we do not have any communication because he has another girlfriend and I have to stop going to school, so I thought that my life was a mess and also I don’t know how to tell to my parents about it. Then after months, my father who is in abroad found out that I was 5 months pregnant, but then he just accepted what happen to me. Then when it is the time to give birth, I have to undergo cesarean section because if I deliver it normal, then I’ll have a 50/50 chance to live. And after an hour in the operating room,… I saw my 1st baby and that is the time that I REALIZED THAT MY LIFE IS WORTH CELEBRATING FOR.. because I have a responsibility with my baby.. and of course, all of the waiting and pain is worth! And now, my husband (boyfriend) came back and we got married and we now have 2 more kids.. and a happy family ^_^

  30. “What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating for?”

    I have realized how lucky I am to have been granted a beautiful daughter amidst knowing I have repro problem. Its worth celebrating for because God really works in wondrous ways!After knowing I have PCOS, I got alarmed having difficulty in conceiving. So when andie, my daughter, came out as pink as ever from my womb, i was so overly grateful to God that He gifted me with this child.

  31. MOTHERHOOD is the best thing that ever happened to me. From conception (hihi), labor (hard labor!) to birth. It just overwhelms me to know I have so much love to give, how I miss her while in the office, how I get easily affected when she is sick and many more. It also amazes me to see myself in my daughter, her love for everything pink and certain traits that is so me. Cheers to Motherhood!

  32. FAITH!

    After giving birth.. I not only have a new little person to get to know and take care of… I also found a new found FAITH to nurture and celebrate!

    The transition from a single care free twenty-something year old to a woman with a major responsibility of molding a LIFE.. was definitely not an easy ride.. I became a worry wart and my fears really shook my foundation!

    I ONLY HAD MY FAITH to carry me through this troubling time… my faith that God is with me in this journey. My faith that no matter what I am, who I’ve been, who I’ll be.. .this little pink-skinned baby is mine to love unconditionally. That I’m his mother and he’s my son… that nothing can ever change that …that’s the kind of FAITH I’ve come to realize.

    That faith is worth celebrating don’t you think?

  33. What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating?

    i realized that getting good grades is one thing that is worth celebrating. good grades is like seeing pink in a town of black and white. it happens once you work hard for it 🙂

  34. “What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating for?”

    LIFE.

    In my nineteen years of living in this pink and girly world, I can say is that simply waking up every morning, healthy and happy is worth celebrating for. because each day means more hope and more knowledge 🙂

  35. What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating?

    I realized that simply having God at the center of my life is worth celebrating because He simply blesses my life. Every problem that walks along the way is not just a blue leaf that shatters our life but instead a pink flower that blossoms thru undying faith in the wind of time.

  36. “What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating?”

    By being a Mom for more than 12 years now, It’s always been worth celebrating because you got to share, teach, mold, care not just my own self but two other person who needed my guidance and love. I am always amazed by them and making me a better person each day. Having a boy as the eldest brings out that masculine side of and 6 yrs after I had my baby girl and made me see the color Pink in different shades. 🙂 ♥

  37. I guess one thing that I realized in my life that is worth celebrating is my womaninity. It is one thing being a mom and wife in this day and age, and quite another to still be your own unique self after the tags (teacher/ driver/ yaya/ companion/ cook/ cheerleader/ financial analyst/ quack doctor/ masseur etc.) has been attached to your name. It is because of the fact that I am a woman that I tackle all these humongous tasks and more with sassiness and flair, even adding to them my own brand of individuality.

    I know for a fact that I am more than my place in my family, my job and my other responsibilities. I am that pink streak in the clouds that is more promising than the silver lining. I am that pink cotton candy in this big “circus” called life that makes it all sweet and dandy. I am that hot pink neon sign that radiates brightness and happiness all around me. I am that pink ribbon on your chest that makes you aware and involved in causes that affect not just me but a hundred or so ladies. I am me, a woman. And that is more than enough reason to celebrate.=)

  38. What have I realized in my life that is worth celebrating for?

    Everyday is worth celebrating for. My life is the greatest gift given by God. This life is very fragile. It always hangs by a thread, it can end the least that I expect (we all die, we are only here today). That’s why I’ve decided to make the best out of every moment I live. I have climbed mountains, have shared my talents to those who are undeserved, have danced my heart out, have jumped into many bandwagons and many adventures and misadventures.

    ☻/ I encourage everyone to celebrate everyday. Cheers to life!
    /▌ Always have a good time, paint the town red, or pink perhaps
    / \ or any color you would like. It’s your life 😀

  39. “What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating for?”

    -Every moment of my life is worth celebrating for. After giving birth to a beautiful baby boy and being a single-mother and becoming an entrepreneur and farmer at the same time which all happens in less than 2 years, what could I ask for? I could only ask for more (just kidding), I will celebrate Christmas together with my family painting our small-hometown PINK with Love, yes, gift-giving that is wrapped in Pink colored wrappers with Pink ribbons of course 🙂

  40. What have I realized in my life that is worth celebrating?

    Everything! It’s just a matter of looking in a better perspective. I learned that there’s really no point in worrying things and stay in an awful situation, you have to stand up and face everything with your chin up. My life has turned 360 degrees from last year. Last year was a dull and sad year, only because I kept on focusing on the negative things. But this 2010, I began to improve myself by thinking positively. Now, I have a stable job, loving my friends and family at my side, and deeper relationship with God. For me, that’s the most important thing in my life, I get to celebrate my existence with the people that are closest to my heart. I learned that you have to live everyday as special as possible so that you don’t have regrets in the end and whatever obstacle that you’re facing right now it will surely come to and end. We can all paint the world with different colors like green, blue, pink, purple or red, but me I choose to paint the world with rainbow colors! Cheers!

  41. “What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating for?”

    I realized that being myself is already something worth celebrating, whether I feel like wearing pink, white or blue today, whether there’s school or not, and even if it rains the whole day, each day is still worth celebrating because I am still me, here, breathing, learning new things each day.

  42. Do you know that pink ribbon symbolizes breast cancer awareness? I know it for sure because it is this fact that makes me overjoyed and the reason why I celebrate everyday as a new beginning.

    Two years ago, my dear grandmother but I call her tita cause she’s still young (my lola’s younger sister) was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and the doctor advised that her breasts be removed. Tears flooded our family but hopes washed it away and also made our family closer than ever. This great test to our family was not easy to conquer but as we live each day, prayers and each other’s strength made us stronger.

    God never sleeps. That’s for sure. Just recently, my aunt visited her physician and what a GOOD NEWS. Prayers really worked and the doctor said she was cancer free. So how was that for a CELEBRATION? Granting my tita another years of healthy living is worth celebrating for. Now, my tita and I can spend more days and more years of absolute bonding.

    Pink is the color of health and life, a color of freshness and a new beginning. Believing in God is really powerful so I can also say, PINK IS THE COLOR OF FAITH.

  43. oh January. I’m sorry for your lost. I have the same story as yours but God is really good with us because He still gave my tita another chance to live. But don’t lose hope and treat each as a blessing from HIM. I know, wherever your aunt is right now, I know she is happy because she’s with God.

  44. I want to celebrate the realization that I am here right now because I—in all my simplest and humblest existence—am playing a most unique and vital role in the whole universe: ME! Next week, I’ll be 17, and I am just tickled, uh, pink.

  45. “What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating for?”

    My simple accomplishments make me feel like I’m on top of the world. It’s worth celebrating, but accomplishing those things are very rewarding already. Life’s like a room, your accomplishments are paints on it and celebrating them gives you streamers, pink hearts on walls, cute lights on your room and people to celebrate with.

  46. I realized that after the trials I have been through, being a single parent isn’t a bad thing after all. I have so much time not only for myself and my son but I learn to grow socially and emotionally. I became more appreciative of small things and all things around me became vibrant. I learned to love myself more, I embraced fashion and style. My world is colorful in the sense that everything I have and everything I do reflects happiness. Pink is my aura, a woman with style and positive vision.

  47. Every morning is worth celebrating for. I get up every morning excited about what’s to happen. I treat each day as if it is the best day of my life. I share positivity to other people and do random kindness. Life, as we know it, is unfair. But treating it as such will lead to no good. Enjoy life and have fun, and that’s when you’ll learn to celebrate every bit of it. I celebrate life. I celebrate my individuality. I celebrate femininity. Paint your life pink and be merry!

  48. Even if how cliche it sounds, I think being able to wake up every morning and experience life is something worth celebrating for. I am generally an optimistic person ever since i was young, i like to smile a lot and look at things positively. Although, i came to a point of my life where i felt so down as reality came slapping in my face every single day after a few months after i graduated from college. I graduated on March and up to this time, i sometimes feel bad as I am not employed yet. It’s not that i don’t go out and look for a job, (believe me i do!) but i guess the perfect job just hasn’t come my way yet.. So come to think of it, i shouldn’t have any reason to celebrate my life as it may seem that i havent done anything worth celebrating for. But i choose to think else wise, i think being able to spend the moments at home with my family who was always there from the beginning to support me with my decisions is a beautiful blessing in life that is worth celebrating for. I know not everyone has the chance to have a good relationship with their family. So i’ll do what i’ll always do, smile, raise my head high, pout my lips with my pink lipstick on and look at the positive side in every situation that is thrown in my direction because God loves us and He will never let us down. 🙂

  49. What have you realized in your life that is worth celebrating?

    Before I used to schedule my time just between my work and at home. I really have no time for myself. All I think about is save, save, save!!! I did not realize that I have been depriving myself of things I deserve.

    Then I found a quote on my planner “similar” to this saying, “Continuous small treats is the secret to a happy life.”

    Then, I realized that I have all the time in the world! Even though I really have a tight work schedule, I always see to it that I can give myself a little something i.e. a pink little hanky, a simple decadent dessert, a cup of yogurt, a chick flick movie treat, and a lot more. Through this, I learn how to love life. I realized that I have a “LIFE TO CELEBRATE”.

  50. WHAT HAVE YOU REALIZED IN YOUR LIFE THAT IS WORTH CELEBRATING FOR?

    having a son that u carried in your womb for 9 months is worth celebrating for, when i saw him he’s so pinky pinky pink! toes and hands are so pinky pink! i actually can’t believe that he grew inside my pinkish tummy! now he’s 2 yrs. old and has a pinkish chubby cheek! i’m so thankful that God gave him to me.. at these very moment when i remember the first time i saw him, i’m still blushing pink. 🙂

  51. Because I live in a way I want to. That is more than enough to celebrate. Everyday I go home, I find my way to be happy, to be at peace. Everyday my office mates are smiling. Sometimes boss is frowning. But everyday, is always a new day. Life never stops. It goes on and on, and I just live it well. 🙂

  53. It’s really sad loosing someone close to you. I lost my dad too when I was 3. I am not sure weather it was better he left early hence, I have no painful memories… or I’d rather have him for a few years to feel that I have a father. At least we know now, they’re on a better place 🙂

  54. Thank you so much Polinda for sharing 🙂 My father died too when I was three, but I have no memories of him in my life 🙁 you’re lucky at least you spent time with him. anyway, cheers to life and to moving on with our precious memories of our loved ones 🙂

  55. Cheers to all the challenges we’ve gone through, indeed this builds our character. i’m so proud and happy everything is doing well and fine now. Keep the positive vibes in ^_^

  56. It’s really nice patching things up with a family member. You can’t avoid them and it gives awkwardness and an anxious feeling during family celebrations. Anyway, good thing you patched up things with her 🙂

  57. I realize that God alone has the center of my life is worth celebrating, because he only gave me life. Each question, along the road is not just a blue leaves shattered our lives, but a pink flowers, flowers in the wind by the high level of confidence.

  58. I want to show my appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of such a predicament. Because of surfing around through the world wide web and coming across notions that were not pleasant, I assumed my life was over. Being alive minus the strategies to the problems you’ve fixed by means of your entire short post is a crucial case, and ones which might have badly affected my entire career if I had not discovered your blog post. Your natural talent and kindness in touching all the details was precious. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come across such a solution like this. I’m able to at this time relish my future. Thanks very much for this skilled and results-oriented guide. I will not be reluctant to recommend your site to anybody who would like guidance about this matter.
