Day 15. I missed blogging a lot. I missed the joy it brings me for every written words. Apart from my busy 2016, I must admit that I purposely delayed writing this blog because of the
mandated topic I have to write about. As you notice, my 30-day blogging challenge is taking years! But, I swear not to stick to the topics until I finish the challenge.
Why did I purposely delay writing this blog? First, because I dread answering this question. Second, I dread telling the world of my plans. So often times when I am asked with this question during job interviews, I always give the most ‘showbiz’ answer like: “I see myself having a flourishing career in your organization and continuously contributing to its growth.” 🙂 How corny! Probably, the reason why I failed in some of my job interviews. Haha!

So, let me give you a glimpse of my future the non-‘showbiz’ way (while fervently praying that my boss won’t see this blog).
As a career woman, I see myself making my passion my profession. I remember stumbling upon this question when I answered a survey: “What will you be doing or where will you be working today if money is not an issue?” My answers would always be, writing, reading, learning and teaching. I’m the type of person who embraces new learning. That’s why I’m not afraid of going out of my comfort zone, of starting projects from scratch, and of researching “How Tos.” There is a wealth of possibilities with making my passion my profession. But, I’d consider continuing to write and self-publishing books as part of my plans. I say ‘continue’ because I was able to write and self-publish my first book last December 2015.
As a mother, a wife, a daughter, and a sister, I see myself having a wealth of opportunities to spend more time with my love ones. I see myself as the best mom, the best wife, the best daughter, and the best sister my family could ever have. With this, I see myself building my own money machines – stocks, mutual funds, businesses, real estate investments. Money machines that will allow me to earn passive income and will give me not just financial, but ‘social’ freedom.
Indeed, that’s 5 years, or 6 months, or 1,825 days, or 43,800 hours, or 2,628,000 minutes. It doesn’t matter how you count by years, months, days, hours or minutes, what matters is how you enjoy this journey called life.
In the meantime, I allow myself to triumph, to fail, to dream, to succeed, to get disappointed. That’s all part of the journey and I’m embracing it with all certainty that in five years… something beautiful is yet to unfold. (excited)
Enjoying the journey,
