Parents Birthday

My husband's parents' birthday is right around summer time (March 9 and 10) so we take this opportunity to go out of town and spend our annual summer bonding. mind you, it's not easy to organize this out of town with 13 families in the family. 13 because all of my husbands sibling is 12 plus him that's equal to 13. If you will include their partners that's 26 plus the parents 28 so there are 28 adults already. the grandchildren? I have no idea how many are they but the last time they count it there are 30 plus. So imagine organizing an out of town trip with a big family. Anyway good thing my sisters started planning it as early as December. They decided to go to Zambales this year.

The resort we chose is called Jash Resort. It is good for budget travellers like us we got the big cottage worth 7000 pesos with 3 free tents. it is near in the ocean which we like. The lady in the resort is very accommodating as well as the other staff but the minus point is that the fee for cooking is too much it costs 1000 pesos. What I also like about the resort is that there are stores inside so if you run out paper plates and plastic spoon and forks you can buy them there.

Here are some of our picture:

MY ROUTINE

it's a new day today!
another day to conquer, another day for a fresh start.

Everyday when I wake up I always look at my planner so I could see what task am I doing today. And sometimes I write first what needs to be done and then throughout the day when I finish a task I use a marker to highlight it.

if my morning is not busy I usually do my devotion. but most of the time I do this in the afternoon because I have a lot of spare time in the afternoon. but I plan on switching it in the morning because I feel more energized throughout the day if I start my devotion in the morning.

in the afternoon, I usually read a book about improving myself. I don't know why but this kind of book always catch my attention but this particular book changed my life (I will have a separate blog about it.) I end up doing the steps in this book.

this three routine will never be out of my routine because they are very important for me. I'am a housewife so I have a lot of household task that I need to finish everyday as I refuse to hire a house helper, but so far this routine works for me as it fuels my spirit and my mind of a positive aura.

HOW DO YOU SPEAK TO YOURSELF?

How do you speak to yourself? Honestly, people will thought that I am insane if I ask them this question, but if you will realize its importance I bet you will be speaking with yourself a lot.

Speaking with yourseld doesn't mean that you must be in front of the mirror, talking out loud, now that is really insane. What I meant was how will you tell yourself to handle something that is a better version of you. Example you have a lot of work to do, so instead of using "I should" you can use "I want" by doing this you will notice a change in your spirit you will not feel obligated instead you will feel enthusiasm to finish it.

I learn this in reading the book REINVENTING YOURSELF by Steve Chandler. This book is really helpful because at every point in our lives we can always reinvent something for ourselves for the better. He has a ways on how we can be an "owner" instead of a "victim". It will take a lot of time and practice in doing his steps but I believe that it will be worth it because I already started doing it to myself. That is why I recommend this book to everyone who wish to be the person they've always wanted to be.

My relationship with God

I grew up attending a christian school, where we had a subject about God. We even study the bible but when I reach college I somehow forget about it or I was just too busy with my life that I didn't make time with God. I regretted it. Because I feel incomplete, wicked and no purpose in life as I fall out of my relationship with him.

Until recently, its like God knocked on me. Because my husband and I have been trying to conceive for months now but its still negative. This gave me an urge to talk to him again and build my faith again.

I started 2019 with a resolution that in a day I will spend a quiet time with him, learning the bible and his holy words. I may have a long way ahead but I plan to continue my devotion because I notice that after my devotion time I feel positive, overwhelmed, and in good spirit for the rest of the day.

TOGETHER AGAIN


Finally! after almost 10 months we are together again! We are so happy and thankful for his safe flight.

It is not a easy decision to decide to be with me and resigned from his job because as we all know salary here in the Philippines is cheap, but since we really wanted to build our own family I think its best to be with each other to impregnate me and spend quality time together. Because ever since we got married we only have I believe 5 months of togetherness.

Long distance relationship is not easy. we've been in this set-up since we were just boyfriend-girlfriend and I like to believe that we came up stronger and better afterwards. our openness, faithfulness and loyalty to each other helped us to get through it.

As of the moment I'am looking forward for more memories with him as time pass by. A memories that I will capture and cherish for the rest of my life.

WHEN WIVES WALK IN GRACE BY STEVE MCVEY

Are you a woman who just got married and looking forward to learn a thing or two about marriage? Then this book is for you.
This book open our eyes to handle petty or even serious marital challengesin our life and it will make us realize how God interferes in our lives.
Personally, I think that this book is very helpful because it tackles the common challenges by married couple like we, as wife, shouldn't try to control our husband or manipulate him. We cannot change people, the change should start within them or when God interfere in his life. Normally, a wife, at some point, even if we admit this or not, we nag our husbands, which is not healthy, Jesus lives within ourselves and the last thing that he wants is for us to shout at each other. So, we should talk as calmly as possible, and that is only a few examples.
The book has 22 chapters and it tackles communication, abuse, bully, self-worth, Faith,Trust and parenting.
I believe in what this book wants us to understand because it will not only make our marriage peaceful, harmonious and healthy but it will also makes us handle trying times as graceful as God wants us to do.
Remember that a secret to a strong family is to surrender to the one who established family in the beginning.
