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.

Being a mom part three


Life was perfect; I have two kids, a boy and a girl. Then when my little girl turned three, I suddenly missed the smell of a baby and imagined how our life will be if I have three kids.

But then, having another child is a blessing. It was what I imagined exactly a year ago.  When I learned I was pregnant, I suddenly felt deprived again of my freedom. A selfish feeling of me but hey, I am being honest. It was a bittersweet feeling needless to say. Weird? I know.

When my EDD draws near, I suddenly felt really excited. I started to research again because it felt like I was a first time mom all over again. I joined support groups and spent hours in the internet reading articles. It was more than three years since my little girl and there was so much improvement with regards to cloth diapers. It was also later on that I learned that my carrier I used for baby wearing was not recommended. There came to a point really that there was so much information and my mind just want to scream. But joining these groups really helped a lot!

Now, I felt really ready about my birthing and all. I was sort of ready about everything well except again for another pain and recovery, which is different in every pregnancy by the way. Will share with you my birthing story in a separate entry.

Stay with me. Okay?
