Of being grateful

I'm currently at London Gatwick airport, got couple of hours to kill before my flight so I thought I should blog about this.


I was at Harrods last night with my family, mom was helping a friend to get Chanel.
So I was sitting on the couch, waiting for her to pay and settle the tax refund stuff. I saw people already holding a Chanel, with a few paperbags of different atas brands on their hands, waiting for their turn to get another Chanel.
This boggles my mind.

Of course it wasn't my first time seeing that, but I just couldn't help it.
I've known a lot of teenagers who carries LV, Lady Dior and even Chanel. When I say teenagers I'm talking about those who wears light blue uniform sipping Slurpee waiting for their parents to pick them up after school at 7-11.

The fact that I'm already 23, I still don't own any branded bags(if you considered Longchamp and Charles&Keith branded, then yes).
Out of no where, I got depressed.

I thought of what I once asked my cousin,
'If you got the money, would you spend it on vacation or a branded bag that you really want?'
She asked the same question back to me. And I replied,
'Are you serious? VACATION OF COURSE!!'



Suddenly, I was at peace with myself again. I'm thankful that this thought came by.
Or else it's gonna ruin my entire trip, or even worse, my life.

You attract what you want, you get what you want.
Never underestimate how powerful your thoughts are.
Getting a branded bag is never my priority, it's not even on my bucket list.

Speaking of bucket list, my little brother was in my room the other day and
saw my things-to-achieve list on my wardrobe.
'Successful blogger, new camera, healthy and pretty, travel and happy family.
You have achieve all of them what, can throw the list away already.'

Kids say the darndest things don't they?
I was filled with joy when I heard that.

A lot of times in life, we(read:I) overlooked things that matter and very often
take things for granted. Being able to travel to Europe again is almost hard to believe for me
as I was there just 2 years ago. Everything was so miraculously wonderful and unexpected.

Note to self to always always be grateful and contented. Feel enough and look at what I have
instead of complaining/being sad of what I don't have.

Off to Switzerland for some good rosti and snow, bye!

p/s: Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't mind if you wanna get me a Chanel. Or Prada. Or Celine.

p/p/s: I don't consider myself a successful blogger. But to my little brother, I am. *throw confetti*
