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.

It is something that I have to be wary all the time.



I wasn’t expecting anything from my little girl except some gibberish language as of the moment when all of a sudden she blurted out, “wabooo” then she kissed me on my lips and hugged me tightly. I was astounded because even if she said it randomly it was very clear that she said the words, “I love you”. Well even though she may be a brat all the time and answers back when I scold her it was yet another moment I get to cherish.
