Today, I will yet again embark on a decluttering activity. And I am excited AND afraid at the same time. You see, decluttering is not simply a matter of picking up things to discard. Those who have shifted from a life full of stuff to a life of intentional simplicity will surely understand the emotional, [...]
As I was preparing for my daughter's portfolio review, I realized I needed a folder for her writing activities. So I began looking through the box of folders under one of our beds. I chanced upon a huge three-ring binder which I bought to compile my manuscripts. I didn't get around to doing that. Things [...]
Living healthy nowadays can be expensive if you buy from the supermarket all the time. I know it is the convenient route for many of us, but if you want to save a little more money, stay away from the grocery store's fruit and vegetable section and opt for fresh produce from the palengke or [...]
Do you still remember my first post on sustainability? There, I recounted how I turned from trash churner to trash champion with a renewed mindset, and that is, this: When I manage my trash, I lessen my stress and the stress I give to the environment. Fast forward now, I am happy. And my sanity [...]
I love to observe unhurried people. Their peace is energizing. They make rebellion to the prevalent notion look good. I want to pick their brains.
These past months, there had been several instances when the poor, tiny dump truck supposed to pick up trash in our area would just pass us by, not even stopping to collect our garbage. You see, by the time it reached our street, it was full, dangerously tottering on one side, without room for more. [...]
Now there are gifts like toys, stuff, and then there are those intangible gifts, the best ones --- like LOVE displayed in TIME spent.
You will reap so many benefits after decluttering your space. And one of the benefits of a decluttered lifeworld is this: you can pursue what you are passionate about with less baggage under better conditions. I am not talking about those daily work we need to do for our families and friends, although we are passionate about them, too. [...]
Ultimately, ridding your home of things you don't need and you don't want will benefit everyone.
Arranging, rearranging, labeling, cleaning up, repairing, boxing, organizing, sorting --- don't these words just tire you?
Living in a tiny house can be quite challenging especially when you can't find joy in it.
You are loved, and you are home.
The Morning Basket is a gentle breeze that gives a boat a push as it leaves the harbor at daybreak.
It's good to be in a learn group because it's hard to do homeschooling alone.
Today, we will be office schooling. Huh? I hear you saying. This might be unfamiliar terrain for you. You might have heard of home schooling, but wait, office schooling? If you're a working mom, you can office school if your company permits and if your work is the type that can wiggle enough room for [...]
Isa sa mga mabubuting asal sa loob ng isang pamilya ang pagbati sa mga kasama sa bahay ng Good Morning sa umaga. Sa sobrang aga kong nagising ngayon, wala akong mabati agad. Kaya minabuti kong i-Good Morning si Lord. Ikaw, nagu-good morning ka rin ba kay Lord? Nasabi ko na dati na kasama sa aking [...]
Nasa pangalawang taon na ako ng paghohomeschool, at masasabi ko na masaya kami ng aking anak. Una, malawak ang aming paaralan. Maaaring nasa bahay kami kadalasan pero maaari din kaming mag-aral kung saan-saan. Minsan nasa labas, nanghuhuli ng kulisap, palaka, o naghahanap ng suso. Sinasama ko siya kung saan ako --- sa palengke, sa mall, [...]
Full-time job ang pagiging nanay, mind you (that is, kung hindi mo pa alam). 😛 Marami kasi ang mababa ang tingin sa mga nanay. Minsan, kapwa natin babae ang mababa ang tingin sa mga nanay na nasa bahay. Sabi nila, ang mga nanay ay nasa bahay lamang. Siyempre may emphasis sa lamang. Pero hindi nila [...]
Nagugulat ako dahil kahit tinigil ko ang pagpopost ng aking mga tula ay may mga steady readers ako dito sa aking blog. Hindi ko alam kung sino sila, at kung bakit kahit hindi sariwa ang mga posts ko ay binibili pa rin nila. May isa pang nagtanong kung sino daw ako upang mailagay niya ako [...]
Ilang beses ko nang naiisipang bumili ng mga "organizers". Pero napagtanto ko na hindi pala organizers ang kailangan ko. By organizers, I mean, yung mga lalagyan, mga anik-anik na color-coded, etc. para DAW mas maging maayos ang iyong bahay/buhay. Hindi ko pala kailangan ng mga iyon. Ayon sa mga vlog na sinusundan ko sa ngayon, [...]
