I Dont Want To Retire!

Probably the real essence of not retiring is not to stop thinking about beautiful ideas and experiences and sharing them.
I aspire to inspire with a message from God to mankind and lessons learned from parenting, travels, home improvements, blogging, Feng Shui, Traditional Chinese Medicine, health and wellness, and many more.

Start of the year thoughts

I can say that this is a good start of the year because I can tell that most of my worries will be over before the first quarter ends. Maybe this will be a good year for me but this time I have to be smarter and be prepared for the coming years. I'm no longer worried about being jobless since that is already given. Companies will prefer the fresh graduates who are more worried than me about getting a job.

I just wish that more opportunities to earn will come my way this year. That will include my blogging, my membership in Tiens, and maybe more computer tasks involving writing or designing. I'm not sure however, if studying web designing will be a right move, if an extra income will come.

A lot of people hate credit cards but ours had saved us from extreme financial problems last year, through these cards' installment schemes. The result was of course debts to pay for the next 12 or 18 months, but what I've appreciated about that is I can plan ahead to pay for them as long as they are kept to the minimum (not bigger than Php10,000 per month). What made that planning possible was the assurance that we will be able to sell our townhouse unit. A month from now, we're expecting to get the proceeds from the sale of this townhouse unit which I will use for the payables for the next 24 months. I cannot invest on anything from that sale, except for the Tiens health mattress that will surely help me and my husband avoid the hospital.

The best development that made me feel good is we will now be able to get the finality of the court's decision for our adoption of Lyca, our special needs child. No more cash needed to get that finality, thank God!
