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

Five Love Languages; A Realization

After finishing the book, Five Love Languages of Gary Chapman (months ago), it helped me contemplate on few facts in life and relationships. I thought, based from my life experiences, it was already enough to make me a better person or should I say, better me in a relationship. But the book helped me understand everything including my attitude towards another individual as well. Here are few of my realizations:

  • Relationships are not meant to fall apart, if and only if couple will compromise. Being out of the relationship is solely a choice between two parties if they really don’t really come up with a common agreement.
  • Not all men are bastards. There are just some who opt to be difficult and chose to play around.
  • Women is a creature who is difficult to decipher but once you get to know her love language, men will surely be head over heels. 
  • Once in a while arguments are healthy, which serves an avenue to know well each other, an opportunity to kiss and make up and connect with your partner.
  • In order for the couple to understand each other, they must speak the same dialect and know each other’s love language.
  • Each person has its own flaws and shortcomings but arguments can be avoided if both parties if there is acceptance.
  • Sometimes it helps to calm before flaring up and think a hundred times before uttering any word. Hurtful words can never be taken back.
  • Time is an element meant to share with someone no matter how busy we are. Again, go back to compromise.
  • Don’t expect your partner to do things beyond their capabilities. Expectations will only kill your hopes, which leads to frustrations. 
  • It is never too late to share your emotions. It might be the start of your ever after.
Now if you think you have a lot to improve with your relationship and want to learn more and understand more your partner in happiness, craziness, and gloom, I recommend reading this book because it really helps a lot.

  1. I married the man of my dreams. But as the saying goes, "Nobody is perfect." We used to argue a lot, too. Sometimes it was his fault, but for the most part it was me. I am kinda bratty and stubborn. If I am mad, I don't talk to him. Gusto ko sya ang mag-sorry kahit ako naman ang may mali. Well I mellowed %50 when our little one was born. Now we are happier but needs more work. I will try to read the book you recommended. 🙂
