2021 YEAR END REVIEW
2021 was not my favorite year to be honest, that’s what I felt last month of December. But I guess I’m just feeling down because I am comparing myself to other people. I felt that I am being left behind. I did not achieve my goal in my bank account and yeah I am just thinking of the negative side perhaps.
I am contemplating to do this blog post because I was thinking I don’t have anything big that happened to us to show to my readers. So, I browsed my 2010, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 , 2019 and 2020 Year End Review to inspire me.
I realized, 2021 might be tough but there are still a lot of things I should be thankful for. Let me tell you some of them.
I passed my driver’s license exam and I was so happy about it. It’s a new life skill added to my resume hahaha.
I had projects with Vitasteen, Mekeni and Nescafe. I was also one of the nominees for Village Pipol Mommy Blog of the Year. I did not win, but I am happy to be nominated and seen 🙂
I worked with Alaska Red Kitchen this month, SingLife Insurance via GCASH app, Mekeni, Bewell C and Milo. I was able to explore the new area in our place together with my sister this month and I’m happy to do it again. Kung gala ka tulad ko, alam mo yung feeling na para kang bata na pinakawalan sa lungga. Ang saya kahit simple lang.
At dahil may driver’s license na ako, nailabas ko na ang mga pamangkin at si Ren na matagal ng nakakulong sa bahay.
I did a lot of cooking this month, thanks to Maggi Magic Sarap project. I am thankful to the PR Ideasync for including me to their pitch and campaigns.
I got a new refrigerator too, thanks to BEKO.
I also worked with Mikrozid Surface Wipes this month. I love this brand and it’s super effective. It’s a bit pricey but if it will help you have a peace of mind, it is worth it.
I did a lot of walking and jogging outside this month. I also bought new workout clothes.
I was able to visit Landers Superstore again this month. I miss having a “me-time” in this place. Also, after 2 years, I was able to see my dear Kumare Mommy Pehpot again. It’s sad that we can’t hug or kiss each other like before, but seeing her personally is enough for now.
I was active selling 18K Gold jewelries again this month and was able to sell a few to nearby friends and neighbors. This month was the first time I did a PR work for Joy Dishwashing Liquid. I was able to get 100 moms to promote Joy on their Facebook accounts. It was challenging, but I was able to do it. So that’s another addition to my experiences.
I was able to visit Tagaytay again with friends after 2 years. Ang saya lang na nakagala ako ulit sa lugar na’to na buti hindi naman pumutok ang Taal Volcano kahit nausok sya.
Finally, I got my COVID vaccine this month.
I also got a project from Arla that I really enjoyed doing.
During this month, we were also tested positive from Covid. Despite of being praning and maingat we still got it, it was frustrating but we are thankful our whole family had mild symptoms. We were thankful also to neighbors, friends and relatives who sent food and things that made our sickness easier to manage. We are blessed that they are there to support us even though we didn’t asked for it. I hope God will bring back their generosity 100 folds.
We survived COVID and glad that our sense of smell came back. We also completed our vaccine this month.
I got projects from US Potatoes and Landers.
For this month, I finally got my own air fryer (Instant Pot Vortex Plus).
After a year, we were able to do a staycation once again. We went to Lucia’s Tagaytay at Silang.
I worked with 7/11 and Gardenia this month.
Finally, Ren got his Covid Vaccine this month.
After 2 years, I was able to see my other Kumare; The Peach Kitchen too.
One of the highlight of this year is seeing my brother once again. He was not able to go home last year because of the pandemic, so we were thankful that this year and for the first time since he worked abroad, he was able to spend the holiday with us.
Thankful that we are complete.
That’s it. Life maybe hard, but we survived 2021.
I am praying that we will have a better year this 2022. I wish for more projects and campaign, good health for my entire family including my in-laws and that the pandemic will end soon.
