Where I’m from, Friday the thirteenth is believed to be an ominous day where luck would have been nonexistent. Unlucky for some. But today, I am considering myself to be very lucky with the series of fortunate events that unfolded in the last 12 hours.
To be honest, the day didn’t really start great. Rather getting stranded for an hour and a half would be crazy. Almost missing an important event was disappointing, but everything changed when assertiveness came into play. I wanted, 100%, to be part of the women’s talk featuring Nia Taduran, who I watch every afternoon on TV at Wanted Sa Radyo. And of course, participate in the Makeup Workshop featuring celebrity makeup artist, Cezar Layno. So although I missed the first part of the session, I was able to push for participation on the workshop which was exactly what I was aiming for. (Thanks boss Ahyo for the opportunity!).
And thank God, I did. Not only was I motivated to continue with my passion for makeup, I also met these awesome folks who work to make work fun! Imagine that. 🙂
And so through meeting these brilliant people, I also got the chance to be a co-writer for the company blog! Fantastic, isn’t it?
This day is definitely one of the best I’ve had in a while and all on a Friday the thirteenth. Who would’ve thought?!
