Happy Thoughts #Weeklies

Week 24/52 #Weeklies

I started off 2016 with plans… big plans!

After studying master’s degree one subject at a time since 2012, I knew I would eventually graduate… soon!

Three months before 2016, my husband and I looked at the possibility of owning a house. We’ve been moving from one apartment/house to another and the idea of finally settling down made sense especially for our kids’ sake too. I knew we would move in… soon!

In February a friend asked me to sit down and listen to a demonstration on the vacuum cleaner slash air purifier and we loved the machine! So even if we haven’t closed on the new house yet, we decided to buy it free if I get to have 20 people to look at it too! I knew I would be able to get 20 people… soon!

So during the first four months of 2016, I was busy… swamped was the right word! I’d be working on assignments and research, I’d be calling on people for appointments, I’d be driving from one city to another to show off the machine, I’d be coming home really late and would still work on my documents I have to submit on closing the house.

And then it happened… April 29th we got the house keys! May 6th I paid off the machine from the 20 demonstrations and sales and May 14th, I graduated! Woohoo!

And then…

I don’t know what to do anymore… I feel like I am still hibernating after four months!!!

I can blame my commute, I can blame my laziness, I can blame sleep, I can blame the weather, I can blame the TV, I can blame the couch… I can blame all else but me… but it will bring me nowhere. Like what I feel right now! Wahhhhh

It’s time to dream… big, bold dreams again! It’s time to put my foot on the pedal to keep me moving to the direction I want again! I just know it’s time to wake up and pursue plans and goals again!

Like to be financially free… when I don’t have to feel like working because I love my work too much it feels like I’m playing… when I can decide to just travel to countries because I have mission to do… when I can just decide to stay at home and laze around and not do anything.. when I can just write all day because I love doing that.. when I can just train people because I love doing that… when I can just speak to public because I think I like the feeling… when I know money will never be a concern because I have lots and lots and lots are coming in the bank because I am financially free!

How to be that and to do that? I do not know. But that is my dream! Lol.

Alright, now back to reality

The Road and I #Weeklies

Week 23/52 #Weeklies

... I still don't know how long I closed my eyes. All I remember was when I opened it, I was circling down to the center road...very fast, out of control... and then God took over.

My Daily Two Hours On The Train #Weeklies

Week 22/52 #Weeklies

When we moved to a different city four months ago, my life took a different turn. I suddenly need to wake up early or else I won’t be able to catch the train to go to work.

At my very first train ride, I got out too early! I thought I was at the correct location since I felt everybody was getting out! I did too! It took me a couple of minutes to realize it was the wrong one, and when I finally did, the train was moving already! Thank God there was UBER to the rescue! Lol.

I'm OK #Weeklies

Week 21/52 #Weeklies

I attended a leadership training before and one of the activities allowed us to identify our smokescreens and blinders. I forgot how it was processed but I specifically remembered going in front of the room, and told everybody that mine was… I’m OK. Everything’s OK.

On Life's Lessons #Weeklies

Week 20/52 #Weeklies

A friend told me his husband doesn't want to join any religious groups because they do not "walk the talk". I told her, well, no one's perfect. 

Don't Worry #Weeklies

Week 19/52 #Weeklies

In Philippians 4: 6 it says:
In the Jerusalem Bible version, verse 6 translates as “Do not worry.”

… we find ourselves worrying over many things: finances, situation of our livelihood, our deteriorating health, broken relationships in family and community, the future of our children, and many more. 

Embracing No #Weeklies

Week 18/52 #Weeklies

When a so-called “friend” says no to you, what do you do? 

Well, I guess it depends on your personality, right?

Either you persist some more until you get a yes, or you accept their no, move on and let go. But sometimes, you vent too. 

Thoughts spilled! #Weeklies

Week 17/52 #Weeklies

When I mentioned to Dennis that we will simply order beef kaldereta from an acquaintance and that we will pick it up, our major thought bubble were suddenly about the kaldereta spilling in the car!
