📝 I’m 40yo 💁🏻♀️.. I guess I will have to get used to that line now.
Looking back 10 yrs ago, I was a free spirited, career driven, money making, living the YOLO single life travelling to Manila twice a year and going around places in Europe whenever. High end items was a thing, like a measure of yeah I can afford these. I splurged to share. I felt making people happy was rewarding enough for me. Life was good, or so I thought..
Today at 40, I’m existing with a totally opposite perspective. With life changing experiences that knocked me off my feet following the birth of my son and the death of my father, and then losing our second babe. I realised there’s more to life that money can’t buy. Like peace of mind, the value of real “rest” and doing nothing, self care, health and just living the moment. And how it’s more meaningful to give the gift of your time than any material things that eventually sit in the corner, dusty. My husband @docboks
, who also turned a year older the same day as me, always tells me na “walang taong busy 24/7”. Like yeah, you can always make money but won’t be able to earn the time you’ve lost. I can go on and on..
I guess what I’m tryna tell myself is that I have to slow down, i need to slow down. Hinga lang.. and be grateful with this country life we chose to live for my family. ❤️ Also, meet my fringes. I thank you. 😝 #SheBangs
