What I Will be Seeking First this 2019

If you’ve been following my blog long enough, you’d know that I always have done some sort of a recap of the past year and set new goals or plans for the new one. By now, you might have noticed that it’s missing. I did not look back on the year that was because I…… Continue reading What I Will be Seeking First this 2019

Raising Grateful Children

If there’s one thing I want to cultivate in my children aside from keeping their faith to the Lord, it would be the attitude of gratitude. No doubt about that. Why? Because I believe that a grateful heart will always lead you to God’s immeasurable love and consequently, to the most wonderful blessings in life.…… Continue reading Raising Grateful Children

Review: Netflix’s Tidying Up with Marie Kondo

On Fridays like this, you’d be able to see a more personal note from me. I plan to publish on my blog my thoughts (probably random but hopefully inspirational), advocacies, experiences, and everything else not about motherhood and money. This Friday, I was supposed to publish my “Best of 2018” but I decided to delay…… Continue reading Review: Netflix’s Tidying Up with Marie Kondo

Money Bliss · Project: Full Life

Dear Self at Twenty-One

As part of tidying-up my blog this year, I plan to set aside Wednesdays for #MoneyBliss stories which include money matters, personal and family finances, and other work-related topics. As a parent, one of my goals is to teach my kids early in life how to live or survive – literally – afford themselves the…… Continue reading Dear Self at Twenty-One

Preparation for a Meaningful Christmas for Kids

Christmas, Christmas, Christmas – once nothing but a joyful season has become a rushed, intense and exhausting time as I grew older. It is not Christmas’ fault. I know that. It’s people’s perception of celebration, expectations, and superficiality. When I was in college, I used to strive to complete all nine mornings at three in…… Continue reading Preparation for a Meaningful Christmas for Kids

#TravelBliss | Prado Farms: The Perfect Place for a Quick Retreat

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1t9Y5C2fGc&t=114s If there is one thing in my pre-mamahood life that I terribly miss, it would be my travels, yes, even more than my pre-pregnancy body! I used to hoard airline tickets on sale, albeit local only. And every time I get stressed out, I would just open my drawer and see all these tickets…… Continue reading #TravelBliss | Prado Farms: The Perfect Place for a Quick Retreat

#InMy30s A Mom’s Birthday Reflection

Seven years ago, I named this blog Blissful Thoughts out of my wedding bliss. While most of my posts (especially the recent ones) were essentially blissful, there were still some which weren’t. That’s life if you’d ask me, in its authentic picture, with all its pain and glory. Not everything and not every day is…… Continue reading #InMy30s A Mom’s Birthday Reflection

Looking Into a Mom’s Self Worth

Life has its unique way of knocking people down who are already trying damn hard. Just when I thought I had convinced myself that I am doing just fine as a thirty-something working mom, I now feel yet again insufficient, unproductive, lost and not doing enough. I’m questioning my self-worth one more time. Surely, I…… Continue reading Looking Into a Mom’s Self Worth

Note To Self: I’m in My 30s and I’m Doing Just Fine (as a Working Mom)

Time flies like a busy fly! 😊 I cannot believe my last post was eleven days ago. This is an absolute setback for my blog’s traffic. Anyway, there is nothing much I can really do. I was soooo absorbed by the new (or not-so-new?) standards we need to comply with in the office. I attended…… Continue reading Note To Self: I’m in My 30s and I’m Doing Just Fine (as a Working Mom)

#LessWasteJourney : Bamboo Cloth Sanitary Pads and Panty Liners Review

One thing I realized in my #LessWasteJourney is that things won’t happen overnight. It will be a continuous conscious effort for the first months or even years until it becomes an effortless habit and a lifestyle. I read a Bloomberg and a TED article which discuss how small the impact is of reducing or banning…… Continue reading #LessWasteJourney : Bamboo Cloth Sanitary Pads and Panty Liners Review
