- When I was a little girl, I would often cry when my mom would go to work (whining and hugging her leg kind of cry)
back then, I didn’t understand why I can’t be with my mom (mom’s a teacher by the way), I would see other kids with their mom by their side fetching them from school or eating with them during lunch time and you will never see these kids being bullied by anyone or else… 😂
That’s why I admire those little kids for they were lucky to spend wonderful moments with their mom like that. Whenever our mom would arrive from work, I remember being always so happy and I would happily shout “Mama!” 😂 and then my dad (an auditor) would also come home from work and he always brings us little pasalubong my favorite is the popsicle- Twin Popsies… “Papa!”😂
I’m so proud of having such hardworking parents, they’ve worked hard for us and I will be forever grateful for having them.
Now that I’m also a mom, the moment I gave birth to our cutie patootie, I know I have to choose. Life is full of choices anyways, but I know what’s in my heart and that’s to witness every milestone of our daughter. When our eldest sister died at the age of 32, I’ve realized so many things in life and one thing is to savor every God-given day. Life is short, enjoy it wisely. 😊
Just Remember: Know your passion in life. I remember before I was so confused, I dont know what I wanted to do! so on a piece of paper, I’ve listed down the things I want in a job, how much I wanted to earn, my expertise and the things I don’t like in a job because my priority now is to take good care of our daughter.
You should be specific on what you want so that when you pray to Papa God, you’re really praying for your heart’s desires and trust me, Papa God is your partner in your job, in your business, in your life.
Follow your heart’s desires, think of something that would make you happy. Something that you would excel in,
Here are some suggestions for you moms (or even dads) if you want to earn and still have time for the kids, or if you’re still single, fed up with your job and you want to try something new.
Online Business (featuring Chelsea’s Mom)
Lara Melissa Bagay is a former flight attendant of Cebu Pacific Air. After giving birth to her daughter, she decided to open an online shop following the fashionista inside her.

Opening up her home-based shop was one of the best decisions she made, It made her realize what her true passion is.
For her, being able to do what you love most is what’s important.

Hair & Make-up Artist
– if you’re a makeup junkie like me, if you love putting on makeup or if you just like makeup period then go for it! I remember being so scared and nervous but because I enjoy makeup, practice eases the worries away.
How: hello youtube! If you love watching makeup gurus, you would really learn a lot from them no need to have expensive sessions or seminars, you can practice on your sister, friends or relatives. Give a hand when someone needs to attend a wedding event or dressy parties. I’ve learned that when your with an actual client, no amount of learnings at a seminar could beat an experience with so many ladies you’ve glam up especially with time constraints because her wedding will start in a few hours.

– you can have your client come to your house while being with your kids or,
– sometimes I bring Loreigne with me, I do makeup on others while she’s playing, writing or watching cartoons. 😊
