♥ Attitude of Gratitude: June Edition ♥

June was a nerve-wracking month for me. We had a hard time adapting to the new-baby-no yaya set-up. This is also the culprit for my deliberate pause from blogging. My family had to adjust and put things in order first and establish a routine and system that works best for everybody. Mornings are like zombie…… Continue reading ♥ Attitude of Gratitude: June Edition ♥

I’m also a little behind my financial goals. Thankfully, towards the last stretch of last month, things started to get clear again. The first…… Continue reading ♥ Attitude of Gratitude February Edition ♥

♥ Year 2015: In Retrospect ♥

I truly believe that it really pays off to literally count our blessings if we want to nurture a grateful heart and a happy and contented life. Having social media day-in, day-out exposes us to feelings of envy, dissatisfaction, resentment, unworthiness and underachievement.
