It’s been awhile since I last wrote about anything. It’s also the first time that I’m trying out this method of blogging-via-mobile. I’ve always loved the touchy-feel of keyboard-typing, but… I’m trying to embrace technology and not be so old-fashioned.
So… what has happened so far…. Baby Bear is already 6 1/2 and she is simply the brightest kid ever (bias aside) 😊 I now call her #BrightBear
Baby Gummy Bear is turning 3 soon! Seriously, time please stop! I want my baby to be my baby forever. He is one sweet little boy 😊 He brings joy to everyone who sees him. I now fondly refer to him as #BrightGummy
With these 2 kids, I still consider myself as a #StartUpMom 😊 Just when you think you know all there is you need to know about your kids and they throw you a curve ball and change things up a bit. I learn so much about being a mom to these two, I learn so much about these 2 wonderful little people and I am learning so much about myself.
#StartUpWife – Yup, still the same. As we go through the different stages and phases of life, we also go through so many challenges, trials, joys and tribulations. Always something new, always learning to love and not let the big things (or the little things) get in the way of US. #MrBright 💙 #MrsBright
#StartUpBusiness – Thought I’d be advancing as time goes by but then because of the nature of our business wherein we bring in different brands, there’s always something on the horizon. We go through the different product life cycle stage for each of our brands. The challenge is always there – be it with a new brand we just bought in, or an old brand that needs updates or a fresh story. The business will always be a challenge but it is not that far from what I used to do in my corporate life before and is actually a life that I’ve missed anf it is work that I love doing. Cliche as it may sound, it’s never work if it’s doing something you love ❤️ https://www.instagram.com/brightbrands.ph/
Last but not the least, #StartUpSelf 🌟 I don’t think I could ever be the best version of a wife, mom or mompreneur…
Not unless I have myself thoroughly figured out. Not unless I know how to fully embrace my strengths, know my limitations, handle my weaknesses and know when to say yes to the right opportunity and not just yes to all things that come my way, just because! I’m learning to choose my obligations so that I don’t stretch myself too thinly and can have time to do the things and be with the people that matter.
The Self is something that I’ve been focusing on a lot now since that’s also the most where I’ve been struggling with. As mentioned above, I do believe that the self has to be worked on first above anything else. Like all my projects, I break this down into compartments. In totality, I’ve reflected on my whole self and it boils down to these important tabs – Personal, Health, Relationships, Business and Philanthropy 😊 I got this idea to work on these 5 aspects from Shark Tank Leader and wise guru – https://daymondjohn.com/ I love what he said and I’ve tried to chart my life by these 5 points. I start the month by planning everything based on these and I feel a sense of relief. First off, it’s a good guide – the important things are prioritized and you know that anything that crops up that can’t be categorized is an automatic deviation to the plan. Quite brilliant, if I might say 😊 Hopefully, I can blog some more about this next time. Would love to have a chance to share this since it’s really helped streamline my life, allowed me to live life simply and stay focused. Eye on the prize! 🏅 Blogging again is part of improving my personal self and I really hope I can write more next time. Starting up again… c’est la vie! Wish me luck! ciao!
