HOW NOT TO BE LOSYANG

This is in connection of my previous post -- on how I felt so ugly a day before I turned 35.  Just so I can help myself, I am blogging about practical ways on how not to be losyang.  Here it goes:

1.  Always wear bra (even at home).  Keep those girls up.

2.  Either have a short hair that you can easily maintain or have your locks long so you can put 'em up on a messy bun.  I am discouraging the chin length (alanganin) cut.  It is so hard to prettify.  

3.  (At least) Wear BB cream, curl lashes and put on blush and lippie when going to the mall.  For those with not so perfect skin (like me), we need to do a bit of covering up.  However, for those with perfect skin (yung mga pinanganak na walang pores, buti pa kayo!! hahaha), powder would do.

4.  For daily regimen, anti-aging and eye cream plus sunblock are a must starting 30 years old.  I am using Celeteque for my eyes.  I will let you know if it works after 2 weeks.

5.  If you are not comfortable with your weight, burn fat.  If you are, yey!!

6.  Be fashionable or have the classic look.  Just make sure it suits your age.  

There.  I plan to work on this in the coming days.  Wich me luck (esp with numner 3)!  

NOW A "LEGIT" STAY-AT-HOME WIFE AND MOM

I have always been proud on how I was able to get around the house, serve Bryan, take care of Risen, do rakets and handle ministry opportunities with a smile on my face.  I have to be honest that it was easy to juggle all this because we had support from our kasambahay.  However, the past few days I had the same goal, only this time without help. 

It is Mother’s day today and we are officially with no kasambahay for almost a week now.  I really thought my world would end without her, but surprisingly, it gets better each day.  I know that the days ahead may not be easy as they were, but to be honest, I am getting the hang of it (or is this too early to say? haha).

How am I coping?  I decided to take one step at a time.  My morning starts with sending Bryan off, then devotions then Risen.  Then, when I have spare time in between Risen, I clean up, do the laundry (Praise God for automatic washing machines!!), and then the other errands.  Our house is definitely messier and plates are often left in the sink, but that should be okay.  That is just really okay  (yes, I am still convincing myself on this area hihi).

Today, as I gaze around our tiny home and read the heartwarming mother’s day greetings, I can’t help but thank God for once again raising the bar of His expectations from me.  I am a wife and a mom…a legit stay-at-home wife and mom.  I miss working full time, the help we used to get, but I am grateful God initiated to take all this from me.  In all honesty, if these two will be offered, I would decline (PS we had the best kasambahay and it was hard to let her go).  Why?  Because I have found my calling in serving my boys intentionally.  My heart has found peace in what I do now.  I would not trade it for anything!!

Definitely tough times ahead but I am assured because God is with me all the way!
