Road to Financial Freedom

  “Spendthrift” is my mom’s mantra for how she handles money. As soon as she started giving me monetary money when I was in 6th grade, she would tell me not to spend everything, especially on the things that I do not need. Thanks to my mom, I learned how to save in a piggy bank early on. But as I grow up, things change. I learned that to live a decent life, we need to work hard for the life that we want. But being a nurse in my country, the salary is not enough to feed our family let alone live a comfortable life. I have three children and pets at home. To sustain all our needs, I need to find ways how to earn in addition to what my husband is earning. I started to find ways how to earn passive income and a steady stream of income. Growing up, I know that once you graduate from college and earn a degree, you can earn a living. But there was a shift of mindset when I was exposed to the power of social media.

Altered Thermoregulation related to Intense Summer Heat

What have I been up to lately? I feel like I'm missing my cyberworld already. Anyway, can you feel the intense summer heat? Few days ago, I received our electric bill and I was delighted to see it. Since it is our first month here I had to make sure if I got the correct bill. So I checked the meter number and lo and behold, it was our lowest consumption ever. Amazing! 


But today I had the most terrible day ever. I woke up weak and feeble and experiencing crampy abdomen. And since it has been a consecutive weeks of stress and unending domestic duties now I can feel the extreme stress all over me plus the scorching summer heat a very good combination to make me exhausted. Whew! I haven't even finished cleaning and unboxing some of our stuffs and it feels like there are unending things to do. I feel so worthless today despite the errands that needs to be done and the mundane domestic duties. Thank God for inventing air conditioners and for my loving husband who stood by me on my feeble times. But I just felt guilty that he has a lot of backlog works that needs to be accomplished. (So sorry love for taking too much of your time). 

Anyway, despite the feeling of weakness and all, I just feel so happy that my 30 month old little boy has made alot of improvement with his vocabulary and I am amazed every time he utters new words. Just this afternoon, he randomly called me mommy and his dad-- daddy. He calls me mama and his dad papa/boboy. He tries to mimic some words but sometimes I could hardly understand the way he pronounce it. He gets frustrated also when he means something but we could hardly understand him. Oh the joys of motherhood is an unending bliss and stress. 

How's your weekend everyone?
