I still yet to share our Hong Kong trip but I’m still on Day 1 and we were there for 5 days so it might take some time before I can really publish it.
Today I realized that July is Filipina Expat’s anniversary month. I think I posted my first post in Jul4 24, 2015.
I have to go through my posts to check.
And I wonder, should I write a meaningful article? Any touching anecdotes? Should I do a giveaway?
Just something to commemorate my 2nd year of blogging.
But I can’t think of anything. And I really don’t want to do anything.
We landed in Dubai last Sunday and with just 3 hours of sleep, I went straight to work.
Had to dive on hundred of emails and issues in the office.
On my spare time, the only thing I want to do is sleep.
But when I realized this morning that it’s my anniversary month, I thought I have to at least write something.
I can maybe write about my personal events from July 2016 up to date.
What happened to me? What changed?
Professionally, nothing changed. I’m still doing the same job but with the change of office management my role becomes more challenging in a good way. I have more freedom to do the things my way, and my boss just basically let me manage the office how I want it. That’s good.
Personally, of course you are aware that I set-up my own nail salon in the Philippines in February 2016. My sister is managing it. So far so good. We’re still on learning phase, figuring out how to manage our staff, expenses and sales.
Being an Overseas Filipino for more than a decade, having a business feels like something good came out of all those years.
I’m not guru for sure but you can read how I started here.
On my blogging life, I’ve been more quiet in social media this year.
Not that I lose interest, I’m still as passionate in blogging as when I started.
But sharing what I write is not something that I am keen to do.
Most of my posts nowadays are personal. I write mostly for myself because I want to and not because I need to.
You can read it on the blog but I don’t want to share it on social media.
I don’t even want to share what I have eaten, places I’ve visited or things that I purchased on Facebook or Instagram
Nothing bad to say to those who share. I actually enjoy reading other’s escapades but I don’t feel sharing my own life out there.
How ironic considering I’m sharing a lot of personal thoughts on this blog now.
But I don’t think my family nor friends read my blog. They just see what I want to share on social media.
Which is fine by me.
Because writing becomes an outlet to share my thoughts without needing to explain anything to anyone.
Yes, I might get judged but these people who will judge me are people whom I don’t know.
I don’t really care.
But if I share it on Facebook, chances are high that my post will be read my relatives and then I might need to explain.
Which I don’t want to do. So majority of my posts lately are just published on the blog.
I also stopped attending media events. Unless it’s a personal invite, I rarely go.
I think I only attended 3 events this past year, all were in support of fellow Filipino bloggers and business.
Now that I’m into my 2nd year of blogging, what am I looking forward to?
Hmmmnn… nothing much.
I would like to focus more on getting rich, both materially and all aspects in my life.
And I would like to share the journey with you.
I’d like to increase our investment, have another SLIAN NAILS branch, maybe buy another property.
I would like to focus on being healthy and watch what I eat.
It would be nice to travel more countries this year.
I want to inspire more women of not getting afraid being wealthy.
As I keep on saying, money won’t changed you. It would just amplify who you are already.
So I would like to share my life with you. Maybe you can learn a thing or two from my journey.
Both from my achievements and mistakes.
And together we can rule the world. Choz!
Have a good weekend!
