Be Inspired by the people who do more
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about being a mom is that you are never “just a mom”, you should learn to be flexible in wearing different hats in every role that you portray.
I am not only a mom, but I’m also a wife, a daughter, a sister and a friend. Aside from that, I’m also a homemaker, a shopper, a tutor, a blogger, a social media handler and an influencer.
As a mom, one of my goals is to raise a responsible citizen of this country. One that follows rules, a person that knows how to handle his money and make it work for him not the other way around. I want my son to live comfortably and be able to provide for his future family and also to be able to give something to the community.
That goal came when I experienced financial difficulties in our family. Thankfully we survived those terrible times. Some of the things that helped me was reading financial books and articles. I learned a lot from financial gurus and now putting everything I learned into our lives. Now, one of my goals is also to raise awareness of how being financially literate can change your life.
I was raised in a poor area, insurance, and health care is not part of our life. People from that place are satisfied with what they have. As I grew older and I think wiser, I realized that these two should be included in your budget to be able to have peace of mind.
If you are the breadwinner and you have a lot of plans, dreams and things you want to achieve for yourself and family, keeping yourself healthy and having a life and health protection should be included in your priority list.
That’s what my realization when I have watched this video from Medicard.
Just like Teacher Mina in the video, I also want to do more and inspire more people. As of this writing, I want to study again to be a behavioral therapist because there is a rising need for teachers for kids with special needs.
I also want to learn how to bake, to learn calligraphy, to learn a new language, to learn how to play a musical instrument and the list goes on and on.
To all the people who want to live a legacy and do more, let us all take good care of ourselves to do what we want to do. Cheers!!!
