My #Positivity and #ProjectSimplify are doing really well. I'm feeling happier everyday and I learned to lighten up my baggage gradually. I made peace with my past, got in touch with long lost people and accepted that the things I didn't get and cannot change are most probably not the best for me. For a competitive woman in her late 20s, that can be tough. But for a competitive woman who believes she is a child of an abundant God, that's fine. There's a whole world of blessings to claim. I just have to be ready.
I've been reading a lot, too. Lately, my bedtime menu includes how to become truly wealthy, gain financial freedom and what it truly means to be rich. I realized that the reason why I rough myself up to achieve my financial and career goals is simple. It's not really to hoard pesos in my bank accounts or pile up my closet with expensive things. It's actually because (1) I want peace of mind. And this peace of mind actually stems from knowing that I have enough to give my family a comfortable, even luxurious life. Or that they get sustainable funds if I'll be gone sooner than expected. There's nothing wrong with that. Number (2) It's also because having more means I can help more. How many times do I have to say "sana mayaman ako" whenever I see heartbreaking stories of families living inhumane conditions. People with no shelter, no food, not even access to clean water. Kids who cannot go to school despite the fact that education is a basic human right. I would love to send those kids to school! But how can I do that if I don't have much to spare? Bo Sanchez said that for two decades he thought that to serve the poor, he should embrace poverty too. But he also realized that's not what God actually wanted. We can love the poor and serve them more if we have more. It makes perfect sense. Money is not evil. Wealth is not evil. It's actually a wonderful enabler. It's how we use it that matters.
So aside from my #Positivity and #ProjectSimplify, I must add #MyRoadToRiches. I hope to share my journey, what I'll learn and do to be truly abundant!
It all starts with a pledge, a decision, and I'm making one today.
