Every Cents Count

With a sudden change of my life’s set-up, I guess I need to make myself totally responsible about anything which has nothing to do with my life and my son’s (of course) – more than I have been before.

I must admit along with that change is an increase on my expenses thus equates to my budgeting dillema. This time, every cents count.

Maybe that was the hard part. On the other hand, I am still thankful now that I can freely move and decide on my own.

Thank you Father God for always providing for my needs.

A Big Change

It’s been almost four years since I embraced a new life and accepted the fact of becoming a mother. Within that period, I’ve transferred to two employers, got myself a housing loan, gave birth to my son and started to act more different than when I was still single.

In that same span of time, I lived with few of my relatives. Now, I guess this is but another challenge to face. I now have to live more freely. Not that I am thankful about it but I never really asked for things to come up this way.

This time I would have no choice but to stand with it and welcome a big change of lifestyle once more.

Blessing in Disguise

I must admit lately I was full of angst. Bitterness attacked as I felt discriminated by people. I was in search for better explanation and clarification of things but nobody was able to deliver it.

This feeling was even mixed up with stress and pressures at work as I have to face and accomplish month-end closing requirements not to mention that I was also sick with colds, cough and phlegm. Exaggerated as it may seem but I was greatly challenged and almost wanted to give up. But I still fought and expressed my principle as I know I have the point and I was indeed right.

I took myself for a day of rest last Friday (yesterday) trying to forget those negative things that struck me in the past few days. This morning (Saturday) I tried opening my personal email and saw Margie’s name in my inbox. Eager as I was I immediately opened it and was so surprised to know that my blog was finally accepted. It’s been ten months before I got this approval. Now I look at it as a blessing. Perhaps, He did not allow me to be part of the team so that I could have enough of time to attend to my blog and earn more.

God is good that He provided me with something I really need in life.

Thanks to payu2blog, looking forward to more opps from you.

Lessons learned: Life sometimes is just a matter of acceptance, perseverance and patience.
