LIFE UPDATE: 3 Life Changes I’m Currently Working On

Lately, I’ve been contemplating so much about how I could put my messed-up self back together. There’s really a lot of things that keep on bugging me day and night, and I think I just couldn’t live through that. So to help myself out, I said, If I really want to get to the best version of what I wanted myself to be, I need to get some serious changes, and that’s what I ought to do.

Change is inevitable, that’s why when you don’t know how to cope with it that’s when you lose.

Don’t get me wrong, a lot of good things are happening in my life right now, my career, my family, my friends, my loved ones, and Zeke. But there’s a scratch on the back of my mind that made me think…  despite all of these blessings and amazing things happening, there’s still a part of me who wanted to push through the deepest. That’s to try investing in new things, to discover new things, to still explore more of what I can do.

And I’m making my way to get to that. So here are 3 life changes I’m currently working on…

I think that when you put love into what you’re doing that’s when it comes passion. I didn’t start blogging because  “naki uso”, I didn’t invest my time and money to put up a site just so to brag that “I’m one of these people”, I didn’t post on “pa-classy” things on Instagram just to get infamous.

Blogging isn’t fake and so are the people who makes it.

I am here, on the page you’re reading, because I have found an avenue where I can speak my heart out.  I see myself working with other people, learning and growing with them. In this point in my life, I wanted to go into the Kate who’s much passionate about what she’s capable of doing. Writing… blogging…

Just last few year, I have been able to work fulltime content writer to a consulting agency abroad based. Through I have been able to find a blogging job where I can fully boast to say that it’s where I am good at. – Though I never thought I could because back then I doubted myself at what I can do. Well I guess, it’s where I am confident to work because I know I can do it. I have been working with such a very generous boss for 6 months now, and with a blogging team who are all very positive, hardworking and professional.

You see… I love blogging that I am willing to explore more of it, and now it’s not just something I do, it has now become my work.

It’s so satisfying to see your content online being red by clients, being shared by interested people. That’s how you reap the price of hard work and willingness to give more. I work not because I have to, but because I want to.  They say, “when you love what you’re doing, you’ll never work a day in your life” and I bet that’s true.


I’m glued to the idea of becoming a mother.

Yes some people may think ” ka artehan lang iyang kahibaw-an ana” that I don’t know how to look after a child or to care for one. They may be right about the first part, but they had the last part wrong. I have to be honest, it’s not something that I signed up for… but I took the challenge to become one and to try to become a better one. It’s never easy… the sleepless nights, the long days, the adjustments, and balancing the time between work and on looking after a little one. It’s a struggle especially if you have to do it on your OWN, but you see I still did it, and every single day I will still be doing it. Though every day is a tough day to go through especially if you’re dealing with both emotional and physical stress, but God is good that he blesses me with such an amazing parents and sibs and people and friends who have been helping me cope up with my postpartum.

My life as a mother is a confidential thing for me to share… But one thing is for sure, being a mother is an overwhelming, at the same time challenging but very rewarding thing.

This time I’m doing all best to come off as whole to my little one to one that’s why I am focusing more on the 3rd change…


This time it’s time to let the positive in and the negative out. Negative energies from negative people and negative doings. Hun it’s time to let them go.

The more you deal with negativity in your life the more life runs away from you. Come to think of it, how would you be able to see a positive opportunity ahead if you’re still stuck on the negative?

Negative thoughts drain you and keep you away from being in the present moment. The more you give into these negative thoughts, the stronger they become and the more they eat you.

I think what make’s my life a bit weary back then because I used to let negative energies consume me. Negative people giving us bad vibes and pain, negative things and habbits which in the end ruined a part of us. If I really wanted to come whole, not broken, then it’s time to let go off something negative. It’a time to open these palms and just let things be things.

One small negative energy can turn into a huge ugliness and unproductiveness. On the contrary, a small positive thought can have the same effect blossoming into a beautiful outcome.

Zeke is one of the reasons why I actually appreciate life and time more. Yes, it may changed a bit of your lifestyle, and you have to cope with it. It may be hard, but that’s not the consequence at all, that’s the price of becoming a mother.

I just realized how much I wanted to stay at home, look after Zeke, feed and cuddle with him, make faces at him until he burst into his cute laughters that eventually made me go to tears, or throw into a movie after work while holding zeke in my arms sleeping… that’s more worth it than being out with friends sipping tea.

I mean, my life may have totally changed me… but this change? This is what I need. And it suits me.
