Discovering Creativity

I never really considered myself artistic or creative. Growing up, MAPEH (Music, Arts, Physical Education, and Health) was my least favorite subject both in elementary and high school, next to Mathematics, that is. I was always both in awe and jealous of my classmates who would turn in really beautiful art projects that were supposedly done by themselves. After all, we’re of the same age and grade level, so how come they could do those things while I would always end up in tears just trying to draw a simple object? My mother and older brother Manny noticed how much I struggled doing arts and crafts, so they started helping me with my projects. From then on, I had convinced myself that I had to enlist my brother’s help if I were to receive a decent grade at all. It’s a good thing  he was happy to do things for me though I suspect it was not so much because I was the baby in the family and he wanted to help, but because he …

The Sunday Currently, Vol. 4: A week after my birthday

reading Wonderstruck by Christian author Margaret Feinberg. I’ve been meaning to read this book, but because it wasn’t free on Amazon Kindle, it took a while before I finally had the chance to do so. I had to wait for months for its price to go down! It makes me want to finish reading it in one sitting, but I couldn’t. I had to put it down several times to reflect on what she’s saying in her book. For example, when I came across this page saying, “If God spoke creation into existence, should we be surprised when creation speaks back to us about God?” That single line reminded me of all the beautiful places I’ve been to, how wonderstruck I was each time I watched the changing colors of the sky as the sun set, etc. I’m not done reading it yet, but I promise you I will in no time. And, if you’re feeling down, lethargic, or restless, I urge you to get a copy of this book and read it! writing responses …

38th Year Goals

Five days from today, I shall be celebrating my 38th birthday. I don’t think I’ll have the time to write that day or in the coming days after tomorrow. In the mean time, I am committing to finish the following unfinished tasks below as I do not want them to get carried over my 38th year of existence. After all, it’s going to be a new beginning for me and I shall have new resolutions, new goals. I know I won’t be able to keep myself away from my laptop though and it would take a long time to finish editing my blog posts, ensuring that the photos of certain articles would finally appear on the front page. As much as I consider myself a techie, I’m not exactly knowledgeable when it comes to the technical aspects of putting up a blog, or making one look exactly the way I want it to, at least. So, what I’ll do now is make sure that I get reminded of the following tasks and goals whenever I turn …

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 …
