Starter Menu (on Minimalism)

I was watching this documentary on Netflix 'Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things' and everything started to hit me. You know that feeling, when suddenly the universe is not asking but instead directing you to do something, it will place events, people, circumstances in your life to prepare you for something. All of a sudden I am understanding all of the why's. All of the reasons why I was robbed last August causing me to not have a smart phone for a long time ( I will reserve that story in another blog post), us moving to a smaller space, and owning just a number of things. I am unconsciously being prepared to live a minimalist life.
Before watching that documentary, I already have an idea of what having a minimalist life is all about. It is just that, I am not ready to swallow or take the plunge yet to live an altered life. Please don't get me wrong, I know there is nothing wrong with consumerism. In fact, I lived that life for so long. But little by little, the series of events in my life is teaching me to consciously control the little things I have.
We are currently in the process of settling-down in our new place. We moved from 50sqm to a 17sqm house, so just imagine the struggle of trying to fit all of our stuff in a smaller place. Well for me, It would be a lot easier to eliminate the extra stuff that we are not using, than trying to fit all of our things in a little space leaving us crumpled in a place with lots of stuff that owns us, rather than us owning them.

Thoughts and rambles

I am in the time of my life where I really want something but I am too afraid of doing the things to have that 'something'. Yes, I am blessed with family, friends, and especially my husband who is fully supporting me in achieving that 'something'. I know and I can't deny it that the universe and God is even conspiring in giving that 'something'to me. All of the forces around me is pushing me to have it. Have you ever experienced that?

So what is the reason why I am not doing the things to achieve it? Am I afraid of something? What's stopping me? To be honest, it is just me, it is just myself. Not that I am afraid of something, I am just not convinced with myself achieving my goal. I am too afraid of myself not being capable, not being sufficient. It has been a couple of months now since I am contemplating of pursuing it. Hopefully, and I am praying really hard. With all my heart, that I can finally realize that it is only me who is preventing me to achieving my goal.

So what is this 'something'? It is going back to Youtube and making videos again.

Will you support me on this?

Max's first beach experience

It's officially summer! And the best way to spend it is at the beach! Since I am still on my maternity leave and the hubster is on indefinite leave from his work, we had an impromptu decision to go to the beach with the two kids. Since it was Max's first beach experience, I documented it.

We went to  Crystal Beach Resort in Zambales. We booked our room ahead of time. You may visit their website here for prices of their accommodation. The room that we got is the John. It is a fan room with one double-bed and it includes a breakfast buffet. Upon arrival, my husband confirmed our booking and ours was upgraded to an air-conditioned room with three single beds. Isn't that awesome?! You can watch my vlog below and see how the great the resort is.

Till next!

Max's cake smash!

It's been long overdue for this post, and yes, Max is already 2 years old. So without further ado here is his cake smash photo for his 1st birthday. All of it are my DIY including the editing and decorations.
