Brace Free At Last!

My sweethearts, it's already Tuesday at exactly 1:38 AM as of this writing. Did you start the week right yesterday? I did. I was extremely happy yesterday and I just want to share some of my overflowing happiness with you guys. For one reason, Monday is such a good start to reprogram myself of getting up early {fyi: I normally wakes up 'til 11:00 AM - 1:00PM max}. I've been in a habit of oversleeping lately and yeah I love it. C'mon, what's not to love about sleeping? Another reason why I love this day  has got to do with blogging and for posting another entry for my lovely friends to read. And last but not the least is because I got my braces off today! Yayyy! I was really happy with the result of my self-sacrificing spirit and patience. When I got this hardware on my teeth I thought I'll never get through it. The pain lasted for maybe 2-3 weeks. It sucks being in that situation when all I can eat is just a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast and rice porridge or vegetable soup for lunch and dinner. But alas! I survived.

Monday. This day brought so much joy to me not only because my teeth look good now but most importantly, I feel a whole lot of lovely inside. Healthy and more confident now that my braces are finally gone. Here's how I look now:

If you're dying to see the BEFORE transformation of the new me, wait are you sure you want to see this? Don't blame me if you can't eat after seeing this.. {haha.} here it is:

We all have our moments!!!
My misaligned tooth was clearly visible to every snapshots of me smiling. That is the reason why I hate taking pictures of me. I even had a hard time looking for these two photos in my Facebook album and my friend's album because every single photo that had me smiling, I deleted right away. So most of my photos two years ago if there are any, can be seen with a closed-mouth shy girl with a very low self-esteem

But not anymore. I started to think that I should love myself first before I could rightfully love another person. This is one way of loving myself. To get the best out of me and boost my self-confidence. From then on, I started to make progress and I made a couple of friends. Speaking of progress,here are some of the noticeable improvements during the first six months of having braces.  

Thank you to my tooth fairy Ms. Cathy Domingo-Guico who've been so kind, so lovely, and so beautiful inside/out. I'd be going back to her clinic next Monday for my invisible retainers. I can't wait.
