Avida’s Homepossible: Familyscape Conference Overview
Just because you have the money, doesn’t mean you have to spend it. Learn to say No! – financial planner Edric Mendoza
Homemakers should nurture their inner self amidst responsibilities at home – Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio
Take care of yourselves, so that you’ll be able to take good care of your family more – Cheska Garcia- Kramer
A tidy home equals a tidy mind. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. – Marilen Faustino- Montenegro
These are just some few words from the speakers at the concluded Avida’s Homepossible: Familyscape Conference. The event was held at the Fairmont Hotel in Makati last May 28, 2016
All the attendees received firsthand tips on how homemakers can nurture a multifaceted lifestyle from thought leaders and celebrity moms Marilen Faustino-Montenegro, Cheska Garcia-Kramer and Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio and ANC’s On the Money host Edric Mendoza.
We were there to have a glimpse on what the event is all about plus we were able to meet 2 out of 3 of the hosts of 100% Whole Mom: Marilen Faustino-Montenegro and Cheska Garcia-Kramer
What I learned from these moms?
I learned that to be a well rounded homemaker, a day should start with a quiet time with God. It is the time you talk to Him and reflect on the things in your life. Does it still follow your beliefs, your purpose in life, does it give praise to Him or not?
According to Cheska Kramer, while some moms wanted to go out for their “me” time and wanted to be alone to relax, she on the other hand said that her comfort zone was to be with her kids and her husband at home. That is why it is important to create an atmosphere at home that give you a relaxing feel according to Marilen.
As a practical mom, I asked Cheska if she has DIY skin care recipes to give to moms who can’t afford to go to salons or beauty center. She was not able to identify and give the exact recipes but she said yes she does have some DIY beauty regimens.
Also they both agreed that if you’ll go out with friends or just want to be alone, you should not be guilty of it as long as when you’re at home you’re spending all your time with your family. You prioritize them and do not neglect their needs. You don’t need to be guilty because a “me” time is something you also need once in a while.
I am sure the attendees learned a lot from the speakers and I hope next time, if ever there will be an event like this you can drop by and listen to their talks. I am sure you’ll learn a thing or two.
