21 THINGS I WILL DO IN 2021

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!! One of the traditions every New Year is to make a New Year’s resolution, in which a person resolves to continue good practices, change an undesired trait or behavior, accomplish a personal goal, or otherwise improve their life at the start of a New Year. Did you make a New Year’s resolution? I did! I’ve been doing it since I’ve known about it and I've been failing after a few weeks and say, I'll try again next year.  So here I am, trying again for 2021 but this year will be different. I will be focusing on progress not on perfection.  And I will be sharing it in this blog because  there is a greater incentive to go out and do it when  someone knows what you need to do or what you want to achieve t o avoid having to explain why you didn’t to another person. That makes you  my  accountability partner . I hope you don't mind. Hehe! So, here's the 21 things I will do in 2021: 1. M ake sleeping early and waking up early a habit There ar

SWEET'S JOURNEY IN THE PROVINCE | NOVEMBER 2020

Living in the hustle and bustle of the big city for almost three years made me appreciate the life in the province more than ever.  The fresh and cool weather.  The green fields. The mountain scenery.  The river.  The rooster's crow in the morning.    The vegetables in the backyard.  The sounds of cicadas at night.  And the presence of my family.  Ahh... Province life. 💚 In this new chapter of my life comes a new segment in my blog.  Sweet's Journey in the Province.   It is to show you the beauty of my province. The beauty of  Negros Occidental . From the people, language spoken, culture, foods to the places. Month by month I'll publish a blog post about my journey in the province. I'll start off with November, my first month here.  But before I tour you around, let me take you first to the place where I grew up, with side stories here and there.  FAMILY'S HOME Our home is located in the rural area of Bacolod City. Bacolod is the capital city of the pr

GOD'S DELAY IS NOT GOD'S DENIAL

God is always on time.  We may feel that His response is taking too long but actually His timing is just perfect. Never early. Never late. And my journey back into my hometown will testify to that. If you don't know yet, I'm a country girl who followed her dreams in the capital city. You can read my story of Leap of Faith here . For over two years of living in the city, I feel the longing to go back into my hometown and to be with my family. And it was heightened by the COVID19 outbreak. I bought a plane ticket during the second month of Enhance Community Quarantine. And honestly on my mind, " coronavirus will be gone by June.  Everything will go back to normal."  But it didn't!  Comes July, and I lost my job that month.  It's a good thing, I only bought one-way ticket which I also took it as a sign from God that it is His will for me to go home... for I don't know how long. Only God knows. All I want is to see my family whom I never seen for a

HOW TO HELP SOMEONE WITH ANXIETY

I am an empath. I have a gift to feel the emotion of others. I have a gift to sympathize with others. And October has been a long hard month for me. I feel negative energy worse than any other month of this year. It caused me a little pain and a little discomfort because I don't understand where its coming from... Where these feelings are coming from?  Is it still from others or is it already my own?  I had sleepless nights, panic attacks and inability to relax.  B ut I take this gift as a blessing to help others who are also suffering from anxiety, to let them feel that they are not alone in their journey.  The population of empath may be rare, but anyone can help. And someone is needing your help right now. Look around.  A family. Friends. Workmates.  Even a strong person needs someone to be there for her/him. Check them.  Help them.  Here are 10 Ways on How to Help Someone with Anxiety: 1. Learn to Recognize the Symptoms of Anxiety With this new normal, the only thin

A BLOG TO EVERYONE WHO LOST THEIR JOB: A MESSAGE OF HOPE

Hello everyone!!  I miss blogging so much. The last time I posted a blog was last March, the first month of quarantine and the topic was 19 THINGS TO DO DURING THE ENHANCE COMMUNITY QUARANTINE . Have you read it? And have you done those things?  Flash forward to August and we are still on quarantine. General Community Quarantine (GCQ) as of this writing, where persons below 21 years old and above 60 years old are required to stay at home for they are at high risk of contracting the COVID19 disease, businesses are allowed to operate at 50 to 100 percent of their regular capacity depending on the industry, malls are open, restaurants accept customers for dine-in and public transport is allowed with strict social distancing,   But for the first three months of prohibiting businesses from operating, the economy has been affected severely not just of the Philippines but of the other countries as well. Resulting to a major global recession. A lot of companies filed for bankru
