MARCH: It's all coming back to me now 🎶

Hello!!! I'm so happy that I'm still able to keep up with my month-ender blog post. LOL. You guessed it right. Today is March 31 - the last day of the month. I woke up on a rainy morning at around 9:30 AM, curled up in bed for about an hour and a half before finally leaving the bed to eat lunch. 

To start with, this month, I finally got the chance and budget to buy a lounge chair for my CHILL AREA in my home office. It's a recliner that we got for a very reasonable price. I've been meaning to buy one for myself where I can just lounge and read a book or watch a movie alone when I'm tired from working. Such a good buy! 

Speaking of reading, I started reading a new book which was supposed to be my book for March but because it took me a long time to finish my February book, I just started reading this month's book yesterday. OKAY, that's a mouthful. HAHA. 

Anyway, last month's book was 36 Arguments For The Existence of God, right? I found it incredibly hard to read and understand given my level of knowledge in religion, psychology, and science. I'm pretty sure there's so much to that book that I just didn't quite get YET. I haven't even finished reading the entire appendix part but I'm slowly going through it every now and then. 

The new book, on the other hand, is such a joy to read. It's simple but with so much impact. It's the Almanack of Naval Ravikant by Eric Jorgenson. After starting yesterday, I couldn't put it down anymore. It's amazing how people can inspire and throw truth bombs using simple and plain language. And to think the book is about building wealth and happiness which are two simple yet complex concepts. 

So we've talked about books. Now, let's talk about why this blog post is titled It's all coming back to me now. Obviously, it's not in the literal sense of the song by Celine Dion, but because last month, I said in my last post that I was so confused. Now, my goals are becoming clearer to me and my BIG WHY is finally coming back to me now, hitting me on the face hard but gently still. 

And in case this is all too vague for you - I'm talking specifically about my business and career goals. Of course, I still don't have it all figured out. I MEAN WHO DOES? 

But you see, I know this is one of the biggest decisions I am making. I already have some takeaways from the new book I've read. I've learned that the 3 biggest decisions you make in life are... 

1. Where you live (city, place)

2. Who you're with (relationships)

3. What you do (jobs, career, business)

IT MAKES SENSE, right? 

They say that when people are watching and listening, you become more accountable which is why some people announce their goals on social media. If that's your thing and if that genuinely helps you achieve what you desire, then sure. But I'm not one to announce my goals on social media for the purpose of accountability. Thankfully, I know how to be accountable on my own and in silence. When everything's up and running, I will let you know. 😊

IN ANOTHER NEWS... 

NCR is on lockdown AGAIN. I'm in Cebu so I'm not really affected but just having this lockdown again means we're just repeating what we did last year. There has been a surge of cases especially with the new virus variants coming in. HAAYY. No one knows when this will end but as what my colleague said that Bill Gates said (I'm actually not sure if Bill Gates did say this but it makes sense. This just got passed on from my colleague at work..) 

COVID is reminding us that we can be patient or we can panic. We can either understand that this type of situation has happened many times before in history and will pass.. OR we can panic and see it as the end of the world and consequently cause ourselves more harm than good. 

AMEN TO THAT! I did read what happened during the Spanish flu era (1918) and it's amusing (not even sure if that's the right term) that it's true, what's happened back then is exactly what's happening now, and just that NOW we have the high-end technology to actually curb the virus and find more impactful and permanent solutions. BUT WHAT'S HAPPENING? 

Back during the Spanish flu era, they didn't even have a vaccine until after a few years plus they didn't have social media for information dissemination. We have better leverage now if you think about it, YET we're still scrambling... at least here in the Philippines. 😫

I'm not one to blame either because I know that we will all get through this with a collective effort from everyone - government, private entities, and the people. BUT somewhere out there, the system is BROKEN and some people have to be accountable. 

Anyways, that's my low-key rant for today. I'm safely tucked at home with my family. There's no need to go out to work because everything I do is online. From time to time, we seek fresh air and a walk outside safely distanced from people. I've never gone out with a large group of friends and I will continue to distance myself and the fam from anyone not part of the household.. unless it's absolutely necessary to be with other people.

THIS TOO SHALL PASS. ❤️️ I HOPE YOU ARE WELL TOO. HANG IN THERE.
