#ThankYou, DBS Fam!

“A grateful heart is a happy heart.”

This is one of the things that I have learned and have lived by. 2016 has been a challenging one for me but the little things remind me that there are always things I should be grateful for and this makes me happy no matter how sad, lonely, or angry I felt. Similarly, AirAsia Philippines aims to inspire me and many others to celebrate the holidays with a grateful heart. Check out their #ThankYou video.

With the spirit of gratitude that AirAsia imbibes, I am more inspired to live each day with a grateful heart.

As we approach the end of 2016 and celebrate the Christmas season, I would like to say #ThankYou to a lot of people… most of all a heartfelt #ThankYou, DBS Fam! <3

2016 has been a challenging one for me as I struggled to make sense of many things. I lost a part of myself somehow but I gained so much more than I could have ever imagined. From strangers, members of my beloved Davao Bloggers Society (DBS) became family to me.

While my family has always been there for me and will forever be my fortress of solitude, I consider DBS as my baby. An organization so close and dear to my heart that when we faced adversity I was heartbroken. Fortunately, DBS rose from the ashes like a phoenix. And it was not because of me or my hardwork. I credit the organization’s resilience and successes to its current officers and more so its members who have risen up to the challenge of contributing to the organization’s success.

We worked hard and played hard. Through our brainstorming meetings, shoots, nakakaumay tambays, food trips, mentoring sessions, Pokemon hunting parties, alak nights, and even more food trips, we became closer. We pushed each other to be better bloggers and better persons. While we are mostly competitive people, we opted to collaborate rather than compete. Taught and learned from each other. Celebrated each other’s victories and successes. We drew strength and inspiration from each other.

Here are some of our best moments together in 2016.

It has been an awesometastic 2016. Definitely, one for the books.

#ThankYou, DBS Fam! Daghang salamat kaayo for giving me a million reasons to work harder, push myself more, be better. Sa dami ng napagdaanan natin ngayong 2016, pinatunayan niyo sa akin na maraming mabubuting tao sa mundo, na hindi sayang ang ating mga pinaghirapan, na marami pa tayong pwedeng gawing kabutihan para sa isa’t isa at para sa ating komunidad. Daghang salamat!

You inspire me in so many ways. Labyu.

PS Wag pasaway at wag niyo akong ipa-high blood. Joke. Pero hindi. CHAROT!
