My 2012 in a can of sardines

I can’t say I’m in the mood for holidays this year, but I shall always be thankful for the break I’m getting from having to wake up very early in the morning every day during school days, even at weekends. But, of course, that’s not the only thing that I am grateful for; 2012 has been such a wonderful year for my family and me. It’s ironic though how a can of sardines helped me realize how blessed I am, especially this year. You see, I’ve been a little bit under the weather the past couple of days, which means I haven’t been in the mood to cook either. After so many months, I’m experiencing sinusitis again, though it’s definitely not as bad as I used to have. Last night, in my attempt to serve a no cook/easy-to-cook meal, I rummaged through my kitchen cupboard and found a can of sardines in tomato sauce next to some of our favorite imported canned goods. I berated myself for buying one a few weeks ago, especially as the …

12.12.12

What’s so remarkable about 12-12-12? Well, for one, there will never be another instance when all the numbers in the calendar and the clock will appear the same. Next, since that makes it rather historical, many people tried to make the best memory out of it, mostly by couples getting married. I have to admit that I had been planning to do something remarkable, if not memorable, on this day too. I wanted it to stand out in my memory when I look back to this particular day. I remember waking up yesterday feeling so refreshed and excited. My daughters and I went to bed the night before with a clean house and that must have contributed to the energy I had by the following morning. Who doesn’t like waking up to a clean house, anyway? However, just as I tried so hard to keep a positive outlook, I had another encounter with my own Merida (remember the movie “Brave”?). Sometimes, I just couldn’t believe that I have a very willful 9-year old child. If she’s …

Following Kiyosaki

I have been quite busy trying to build my business lately. I talk to a lot of medical practitioners, particularly dermatologists, as well as salon and spa owners. That’s only natural, of course, since I am a distributor of anti-aging products. I supply them skin care products that do not just target the signs of aging, but the sources of aging. I introduce them to the latest innovation that can erase up to 10 years’ worth of wrinkles in just 10 minutes. And that’s done painlessly, without the use of needles, by the way! Today, I’m supposed to meet two more dermatologists at different hospitals, but I opted to stay home and rest. I’m not sure if this is the best decision for me, since time is of the essence, not to mention time is gold (money). However, I haven’t had some “me time” lately, and later this evening, I have to be out again to meet an old friend who needs help in managing his weight. Well, you’ve got it right: I also distribute …
