Let Go of What is Bringing You Down

if-you-feel-like-your-ship-is-sinking-it-might-be-a-good-time-to-throw-out-the-stuff-that-is-been-weighting-it-down-let-go-of-what-is-bringing-you-down-and-surround-yourself-with-what-brings-out-the

Since January I have been trying to declutter, trying to organize things at home. It’s a never ending process, throw something and then in a few days I would acquire something. Well I just hope this time what I acquire is something that really brings joy to my life ( sounds familiar? It’s the KonMari Method)

So aside from organizing things, I have decided to organize people around me. For me it means letting go of people that hinders my happiness and letting go of people who I really don’t talk to anymore; it’s either they haven’t reached out to me or they totally forgot I exist.  I have decided to really invest time, energy, money, emotions to a few,  I don’t need a lot of people I need few TRUE friends. 

It’s a different story if it involves family members, it’s so hard to just ignore them because one way or the other I am connected to them by blood. And once upon a time, I know that we were close and shared happy memories. So I really don’t know how to go about this one… still thinking ?! 

Life is beautiful, it’s amazing and it should be lived with happiness and it starts with ME. I will surround myself with beautiful things, people who loves me and believes in me and I will start being #grateful everyday. I will give LOVE to those who deserves it and I will say Goodbyes to others. 

Simply life! Be Happy! Carpe Diem!

What kind of friends do you have?

Do you have lot of friends? Are you sure that the people you consider friends are really your friends? It’s now the time to do an inventory of your friends.

We are affected by the people that surrounds us, sometimes it is actually a reflection of ourselves. I remember a saying that goes like this: ” Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are ” Do you agree or disagree?

What kind of friends do you have? Do you have loving, kind, selfless, amazing, awesome. If you want to have these kinds of friends then you yourself should be loving, kind, selfless, amazing, awesome too.

People come in and out of our lives, some stay for a while, some just pass by and others stay longer and a few are the ones who will be there for you thru thick and thin, and they are the “Truest” of them all .

Do you have that person who will be there for you during the times that you are down, so depressed? That person no matter what will be there to pick you up and help you rise up again?

I will be doing an inventory of my life, I will invest more to those who I consider to be my friends, I will be amazing, kind, loving, selfless to them and then to some who takes the energy out of me I will let them go. It’s hard to let go and I don’t know I might end up not having many people around me but I would rather have a few truest then a bunch of people who will bring me down.

Remitly – One way to remit your money to the Philippines

My nephews are celebrating their birthday’s in a few weeks and when I was talking to one of them I asked them what he wants for his birthday, he want’s a chocolate cake with Mickey Mouse on it. So me, I was thinking of ways to make it happen so I thought of sending money and ask their mom and dad to order the cake.

Usually, I go to a remittance center and do the transaction there but good thing I found REMITLY, it’s an online platform that’s let’s me send money via ONLINE, it saves me time and money ( time because I don’t need to go out esp. during the cold weather and money because I don’t need to pay for bus fare ).

I do everything at the comfort of my home, it’s so easy to use it and the transaction fee is one of the lowest I know. The downside I think would be the countries they currently support, but honestly for me I don’t mind since I just remit money to the Philippines.

What you need to be able to send money are the following:

  1. Your Bank Details: You can use your Bank Account, Debit Card or Credit Card ( additional fee applies since I think this is considered Cash Advance )
  2. If you are using your Bank Account, be sure to have your Transit Number, Branch Number and Account Number on hand.
  3. Your recipients bank information, address and phone number

How long, well for Bank to Bank it takes quite awhile it takes 3-4 business days, but this has the cheapest transaction fee.

If you are in a hurry, you can opt for Cash PickUP or use your Debit Card or Credit Card but the transaction fee is much higher.

So if you want to try just click >  Remitly

 

Note: Using Remitly is my own personal choice and they are not paying me to advertise this one.

 

 

 

About Life

If life is perfect then it’s not fun anymore, the imperfections of life makes it more exciting; it gives us memories; it helps us be a better version of ourselves. 

The beauty of  our life depends on ourselves, how we create it and how we deal with the imperfections of it.  Everyday, we can decide to make it a memorable day or we can decided to just do nothing. All of us, rich or poor, young and old have a chance to make our life meaningful so make the most of it. Is it amazing we are the author or our life?

Life Begins At the End of Your Comfort Zone

inspiration

For the past 2 years there were so many new things that happened to me

  • Moving to a new country
  • Being a Stay Home Mom
  • New to Blogging
  • New currency
  • New weather
  • New Friends
  • I can continue with all the New in my life.

So many Changes, and there were moments that I just want to stop and shout..I don’t want it anymore, I want to go back to the way things were.

Change is good and hard at the same time but in order for us to mature and enjoy life we must embrace it and move out of our comfort zone.

I chanced upon Johanna Rosberg blog when I was reading my daily dose of TheSeeds4Life and I like the way she uplifts her readers. The entry about New Chapters, captured what I am feeling, I commented and she replied with words of encouragement, below is a part of her reply …

I always try to stay in the present, avoiding to dwell or linger on what things are like “back home”. See all the good things you experience in your new place and keep focus on them no matter how small they are some days, and embrace the differences you see and live, because those differences are what makes the world so incredible!🙂   

So thanks Johanna for the inspiring words, I will try and not to dwell on the past and look forward to what lies ahead.

Change is good! New life begins when we move out of our comfort zone! Carpe Diem!
