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.

Today : A Is Sick

Yesterday my little girl woke up calling “Boboy” instead of the usual “Mama”. Then, I went back to bed because I only got 3 hours of sleep then. But she continuously poked my eyes, which means, I have to get up and get going.

When she woke up from her nap, she was completely fine except she has runny nose and still feverish. But she still looks fine and was running around again in the living room. Then after dinner, I decided to give her medicines for her colds. It’s a struggle having to make her drink medicines. So I took out jellies and told her she can have one after drinking the meds. She was able to drink the two but the third one was a struggle. D was holding already the cup and tells her sister, “A, drink it it’s yummy.” But few minutes later, she went sick. I noticed her worrisome face as well as D. “Mama, A sick.” Uh oh. D was continuously convincing her sister to take the medicines to make her feel better. I was tad worried too at that moment but since D was showing compassion to her sister, I felt much better. The worries vanished in an instant.
