The beginning…

 Do what your heart desires.

It’s very important that you know what you really want in life. There’s a lot of choices to make but only few will lead you to the right path. It’s not necessarily making the right decision all the time.Its just setting priorities one at a time.Who knows? What you think is wrong at the moment,will be the only change to make everything right.

Why keeping an eye to your expenses important?

Its always important to spend less than what you’ve earned. In a daily basis you need to budget everything. In our own household I’m the one managing the expenses. It’s very important that you know where you put all your money. These things helps me out.

  1. I don’t put extra money in my wallet. I only put our allowance and thats it.
  2. No sudden purchases. Even if its on sale. I only buy what’s needed and if its on sale then good but if not I’ll stick with our needs.
  3. I don’t buy duplicates. Meaning I don’t have 2 scissors, 2 combs and so on. It will take space and money. So I only have one on everything I need.
  4. I encouraged my kids to drink more water. No juices and carbonated drinks.
  5. I allow them to buy what they need with money. I have 4 years old and 2 years old twin. My mother in law has a convenient store that have lots of candies and stuff that kids do want. They know that if they don’t have money then they should stop asking. They need to clean their mess and toys before they can get what they want. I’m teaching them to work before they can get what they want. And yes, it works.
  6. I have a list of everything that we spend in a month so I know how much we’re spending and what needs to cut off to save more.
  7. Delayed gratification is the key. We need to work hard for us to buy what we want.

8. I have financial goals. And listing it on a piece of paper or notebook do wonders. I always keep an eye if we’re close enough to our goals. It motivates me.

So yes! We all have the same day in a week. Let’s be productive in finding ways how to make our lives easier. Don’t allow the society to tell you where your money should go. Live within your means. Save more and spend less. The pay-off will be better soon. It will be.

How to handle your money?

Most of us may wonder, where is my hard earned money go? The year will end soon but my savings didn’t grow up.

Here are some tips that may help you.

  1. List all your expenses in a day. I mean it ALL. Every single penny counts.
  2. Write all the necessary needs when going to groceries. Just buy what’s needed and not what’s in SALE.
  3. Cook your own food.
  4. If you don’t have the money at your wallet then don’t used your credit card when buying things that you want.
  5. Pay everything in cash. In that way you feel every single cents that was taken out from you. You’ll be amazed how you can control your spending.
  6. Set a financial goal. If you wanted to buy something then think how you can afford it without breaking your savings account.
  7. Don’t be a one day millionaire. You need to eat the next day so be careful how to spend your salary.
  8. Ever heard an envelope method? When you get your salary put the designated money on it. For instance, you can write; Food, rent, gasoline, electricity & water bill, savings and so on. Depends on your basic needs in life. So if nothings left then you need to think how to earned more if you want something.
  9. Stay at home during weekends. Clean your house and grow plants. You’ll save more by doing so.
  10. Educate yourself more. Spend more on your growth instead of pleasing other people. You don’t need tons of shoes and bags and you don’t have money on your savings account.

There you go! Hope you’ll learn something from these. It’s not easy. A lot of temptation nearby. Delayed gratification will bring you so much joy and peace at night.

Keep going. Be mindful on spending.

The story behind closed door…

We always have that skeleton in our closet that we don’t want to exposed. It’s either a toxic relationship or the disappointments that we can’t get rid of. Whatever it is, we’re scared of showing it to the outside world.

Let’s make it clear. That is not the story here.

I’m talking about the dreams that we keep on dreaming. The fairy land that our parents outgrow. The candy land and the chocolate fields that so tempting not to talk about. Yes! We still have that on us. There is a magic in imagination. It makes us think outside the box. The reason why Google was made. The reason why technology become so high and people become so low. The bad and the good. The reason why everything become possible to make.

Imagination. Dreams. Courage. Hardwork. Commitment.

Yes. Behind closed door were the struggle that each of us suffer yet make us more stronger and wiser. Not everything is up for display but we’re getting there.

Be strong. Be creative. Widen your limits and tap that curious child in you.

You will be surprised what’s behind that closed door for you.

If your feeling stuck, ask yourself….

  1. What is it that keeps me from doing it?
  2. What is it with me?
  3. Why I’m not moving forward?
  4. Whats so scary about it?
  5. Do I have it with me to keep going?
  6. Is my support system okay?
  7. Am I doing it to be better?
  8. Is my goal realistic?
  9. Is it really what I want?
  10. What kind of experience I wanted in my life?

Then maybe…..

You’ll know what scares you of not doing it at all.

Live life.

Your choice.

Your commitment.

Your happiness.

Your growth is in the palm of your hand.

Just a thought…

I do hope your doing fine.

I hope whatever burden you have, you can surpass it.

I hope you see the beauty of the sunset and the mystic beauty of the dawn.

I hope you see the courage within you to keep going.

I hope you see the warrior trying to win battles.

I hope to see you smile.

I hope you see the wound of courage instead of seeing the nasty appearance of it.

I hope you see the wonders of being strong and resilience….

I hope you get the courage of speaking up your mind.

I hope you live the version of yourself you keep on dreaming about….

Why I Added vegan protein in my Life?

Good morning my loves!!!!

I do missed this kind and supportive community in WP. I’m in the process of taking good care of my health and my family. Easily said than done. I know.

I love going out, having fun and travel a lot if I can but for this year I feel so weak. Emotionally and physically. I am draining and it scares me a lot. There is even a time that I feel like I’m dying. Literally dying.

Imagine I’m at the peak of my age. A lot of opportunities were knocking at my door but I can’t do it. A lot of obstacles were blocking my way and I’m so weak to resist. A lot of plans were put on hold and that’s when reality hit me so hard.

If I’m weak I can’t do anything and I’m no good to the people around me. Yes! I’m not even good for me. A lot of sleepless nights were spent and a tons of prayers were spend.

My blood pressure were good. There’s nothing wrong with the lab test but I’m not feeling good. Hallelujah!

But why am I so weak?

So I heard about veganism and I’m not into it really. The lifestyle we’re different and I know my kids and my husband can’t do it for now. But I needed to be healthy. I can’t wait for them to be ready. I need to take a different path.

So I take vegan protein. It looks delicious but it’s not. The taste were different than my usual drinks but then again you’ll get used to it. After I drink it for a week I can really feel the difference. My dizziness were gone. My sleep were uninterrupted. I feel healthy and I get rid of process food little by little. I drink it every morning and afternoon in place with my snacks.

So what it vegan protein?

It is a mixture of complex carbohydrates derived from gluten – free whole grains. It’s free from lactose, soy, GMO and preservatives. Charactirize by low sugar content. It is a high protein snack.

But you need to eat a healthy diet and exercise as well. This is not a miracle drink. It’s a healthy drink that can help you achieved a healthy body that can cope up with different levels of stress.

Vegan protein comes in different flavours and brand. It’s up to you which one to get.

So there it is.

I hope my story will inspire you to be healthy for you and your family. This is not a sponsored post. Being healthy is the biggest blessing you can give to yourself and to your family.

Start doing what’s good for you.

Let’s talk.

What’s your journey of a healthy lifestyle? 😊😊😊
