Having given the trust to handle 8 hotels in just 6 months is enough to motivate me to do better and better. Being recognized and appreciated all the time is a great feeling. Whenever I look back to the times when I used to commute back and forth to get to the office on time, I just smile and tell myself “Good thing I readily ditched my office-based job when I felt the need to, otherwise, I would still be one of those who whines every day how traffic affects their daily commute experiences.”
If you work with a flexible schedule, it’s vital to arrange your day painstakingly. Ask yourself how long do you plan to function that day? In my case, I work with a fixed schedule as if I still work and function in a corporate world with the difference that I work from home from 1-10pm during Summer time and back to our normal schedule 2-11pm, with weekend off, Philippine holidays, and birthday leave. No complaints. I can still do my errands in the morning and attend to PTAs whenever needed.
During the time when the girls need my assistance in completing their homework, I just let them sit beside me, guide them, and still carry on with what I am currently working on.
When one of them falls sick, I don’t need to worry. I can still watch over them and continue working. No need to file a leave just to be with them. You know kids tend to get more clingy when sick.
If you can say that you have lived a life that is entirely free from regrets, you have done incredibly well. For most of us however, there are at least one or two things that we can look back on and wish we did differently. Looking at a few of life’s biggest regrets can help to focus your mind and make you less likely to look back wishing you had done things differently. Here is a list of some common regrets in life for you to take a look at.
What a great feeling to know that fellow moms from other countries also read and follow my blog! Best part of it, we all share the same thoughts (Well, I guess, all moms do!). In return, I did a collaboration with some of them and here’s one of those who have already shared interest in guest posting. Read on…
Exercise and Your Kids. Exercise is an important activity for children to engage in, but you can make it more fun by joining them. Children will often reiterate what they see their parents doing, so exercise is a healthy activity to repeat.
Maybe you already talk your kids on a walk, but is the time you are spending with them quality time? Do you feel rushed on the walk or like you have no time? If so, I have got 6 simple ways to improve the quality of your walk with your children.
When someone falls sick in the family, I panic a lot. It could be the trauma that I’ve had with my dad during and after his passing, and I have this notion that I am at fault since I am the one around them. One way or another, I am the one responsible.
Just last month, I had to rush my daughters to the hospital on different days. Thank God I can drive now! As usual, my youngest suffered from viral fever and asthma, but this time with rashes all over her body and face, while my eldest had an accident while on her roller blades.
One of the many perks of working from home is that you can either squat on the floor and move around the house without any hassle. As long as there is a stable internet connection, no problem. Although in my case, I prefer to have a working corner for myself, especially that I spend half of my working hours during bedtime. If I work in bed, there is a tendency that I doze off without knowing it. Anyway, this corner used to be the space for our shoes. The moment I had the built-in shoerack made downstairs, I thought this could be a perfect place for my working corner.
A pleasant working space makes a big difference, well, at least for me. It helps me boost my morale and increases my productivity.
