Life Doesn’t Throw Things You Like…

So much in perspective… cut down into 3 main scenarios…

When I was offered the job as a segment producer for a morning show, I got scared because I am not much of a people person.

When I was offered a job as a reporter in Isabela, I accepted it halfheartedly considering the place and having to think of not seeing my daughter for weeks made me a cry baby weeks.

Prior to this, Jay, my co-segment producer decided to resign so my being a reporter was put on hold. It was a relief, I was happy and then unhappy because it might be the last time this will be offered and the acceptance stage is still on process.

In a week, Jay is officially leaving so I am left with another responsibility and that is taking his other position, floor director. As usual, I didn’t like it one bit because I hate giving orders, a part of the job description.

Where am I getting at with this?

Basing on  “lynn’s guide to life”, life offers propositions and opportunities that is out of your comfort zone.

You either decide to live outside the box and work on how you accept the challenge or you decide to stay stuck.

There are people who can live with the “what ifs” so long as they get to stay in their comfort zone. For some, the jump is exciting considering the possibilities and the learning experience.


I would want to be the latter.

Moving up and away...

This has been a favorite convo starter for the past weeks and it goes with staying stuck. The latter part is easy. You get to be on your comfort zone but for some time, the challenge comes when you realize there is no growth left anymore. Challenge in a way that makes people not appreciate what they have but doesn’t realize it.  They are focused on something more that appreciation slips often times. People tend to reach for other motivation and decide to look for something more and that is a good thing right?

I know, I know… the logic is a bit messed up and this is just the reality of it. My life has been on this and it is a streak I cannot get over with. Overthinkers tend to confuse themselves with what is here and what will become in the future.

I live by this. In a way, it helps me focus. Whatever it is that life decides to throw my way, I try to live by it and more often than not, I truly let the future decide.

Although there are some missed spots like when I tell myself that “I didn’t ask for this” and it shows on what I say and think and most often I become that “ungrateful bitch” and I say this basing on the words of wisdom from people I often spend time with,when they patiently hear me whine and see my uhog flow like a river but the other side of what they say, like people seeing something in me which I often push at the back of my mind, me being the “breaker of things” have something of a potential with which puts more pressure and affects my how I see things in perspective.


I should have faith in me more.

The Week in Summary

My phone's wi-fi is wonky so I decided to post pictures on how my week was before 2016. Sayang naman pag hindi na post. Hope you had a fabulous week because I think I did!

December 27
I wanted to go out so bad the night before and still was on a Sunday night. Good thing Macky was available so we hang from 4pm til 10pm. We talked about his hook ups and heartbreaks, I like being the listener most of the time. :)
My first ever meet up with Macky after graduation.

December 28
Because of the long weekend, super heavy ang traffic pero hindi EDSA levels pero nabagot at nagmamaganda ako habang napapa-gas si kuya Billy. This was before my Carbon Laser Peel, part ako ng beauty segment for NMK, walang model na available kaya ako na lang. Next post about that experience. ;)

Selfie na rin habang nagpapalipas ng traffic on the way to my first derma appointment slash segment.


A quick selfie before my Carbon Laser Peel. 

December 29
We were all in a good mood while doing another segment which is the exercise demo nang sabihin ni gym instructor PJ na last na daw niyang exercise demo dahil sa greener pasture. Enjoy Kuwait sir! Sa muli nating pagkikita.
Naki selfie sa aming gym instructor resident sa Naimbag nga Morning.
His last taped exercise demo dahil mag a-abroad na pala, Thanks PJ!
December 31
Dahil sa nagmamaganda nung araw na yun si Carmela, nagselfie kami. Ayaw niya perong i-post dahil sa ma emote lang talaga siya kaya para hindi masayang, ipopost ko na lang dito, nasasayangan ako sa minutes na pagtake ng picture e. :))

With Carmela Jimenez, ang aking ading sa News room.
January 1
Finally get to join the family for New Year. I did miss celebrating with them on New Year's eve, we still celebrated part II kasi finally we were all complete. Yes, I love having bonfires and smores and we all did that to make up for me being MIA last Christmas. My family had parlor games for the kids on the last picture, it kinda looks like I gatecrashed.
Bonfire. Isa sa aking weakness.

Nag attempt mag sefie ulit kasama sana yung bonfire.

HAPPY New Year! Naki gatecrash sa mga naglalaro ng 'the boat is sinking.".

Dear Planner...

2016 is fast approaching. I have plans, lots of plans especially when it comes to sorting my priorities, thoughts and issues.

The last time I owned a planner was 3 or 4 years ago. It was a gift given by one of my close friends, Lorie. It was given around February but I only got to use it almost half of the year. I was a student back then so it mostly contains reminders from school, home works and some mommy duties. It wasn't really that helpful because back then, I thought owning a tablet is better. Why? Here are a few of my acceptable-before-but-a-little-lame- reason now that I am of age to think so...
First - My handwriting is okay but I don't know, I was expecting more on like caligraphy-ish because I find it more appealing and artistic. I was thinking that the effort that I put in designing my entries back then makes my entries more doable. I ended up skipping weeks of entries which made it less useful. Second - I was never satisfied with how I make use of it so it wasn't really a planner but was used mainly as a plain old notebook. Thirdly - I keep forgetting all my jotted notes because I keep forgetting to bring it, it gets dusty after some time. For those reasons, a tablet I thought was more reasonable since it has auto-reminder with cute fonts (hehe, the kid that I was). After 2 years of owning a tablet, it did not fail me because it did the job that I want.

Fast forward to year 2015, 5 months after I got hired as a segment producer, change of heart nanaman ito. Although I still have my ipad and there are some apps that cute enough for planners, i wanted to go back to basics for next year although this time, it has to contain inspirational quotations to help me get by every time I feel stressed. It has a dual purpose, it should help me prioritize and remind at the same time, it should be my motivation

Here are some planners which I think would be awesome to own next year, will help me keep pushing til the year end.

BAN.DO PLANNER

CERTIFIED POSITIVE PLANNER
THE DAYKEEPER 2016

EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE PLANNER

I AM VERY BUSY BAN.DO PLANNER


This are all combinations of things that I wanted on a planner. If this will all be rolled into one, I'm the happiest. For more info on each of this planners or journals, you can check it here with some other choices.
