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. Admittedly, it helped me open doors to many opportunities including learning di

A Moments : "Noooo!"

Ever since my little girl started to utter single syllable word, it amazes me how she can mimic us. It comes out unexpectedly sometimes and whenever it happens it’s as if she really understands what she is trying to say. Though some few words are still indiscernible, still, she is trying her best to communicate with us. I’m not rushing her by the way. I just want her to take it easy as I enjoy moments like this when they are still trying to fit in the world they are in.

Speaking of which, she is now trying to develop her character. Every now and then she makes her own choices that sometimes I can’t understand the rationale behind it. During our quick vacay after a visit to my cousin who just gave birth last month, we decided to pay a visit to Jollibee as my son was continuously raving about it on our way there. It was timely that it was dinnertime and every one else was hungry.

After I ordered and distributed food for every one, my little girl got so giddy that she was giggling and shattering for joy. Mind you it’s ear wrecking but somehow I get used to it. My mom gave her the burger steak I ordered and she immediately started eating on her own. But because I saw her food falling down from her chair while she keeps on tapping her spoon against the rice, I got it from her and replaced her plate with an empty karton. At that moment all I wanted was to feed her and minimize the mess. But oh no I was surprised when she threw the karton away and uttered a loud “nooooo!” My mom who was seated beside her was shocked. Yes it was the first time she threw away something towards me. But I realized I was wrong by harshly taking her food away from her without asking permission. Oh my. During our short vacay she has made a lot of changes from her from being aggressive to more aggressive and mostly from persistent to more persistent.

I know she looks kawawa there but that is our daily drama. 



This means hurray for more challenges to me to these two balls of energies.
