How I Prepared for the Freelance Life

Brighter Life Philippines

 

P1040867

My name is Frances and I’m a freelance writer and editor. I used to work for a magazine publishing company and it was a really sweet deal—flexible hours, great pay, and the work was fun—but all good things must come to an end. The celebrity magazine I handled was shut down and for the first time in 13 years, I was out of work.

Wait. That’s not true. I was out of employment but I was thrust into the world of freelance writing, and it’s been tremendously exciting. I have never been this happy in my life! I choose when I want to work and who I want to work with. I no longer know what EDSA traffic is. But happiest of all, I get to be with my two young sons all day, every single day.

While you may think I’m trying to tempt you to leave your…

Why God wants you to be reach?

I was inspired to this article from Chinkee Tan Book and I want to share it to others!

(THIS IS AN EXCERPT FROM BOOK RICH GOD POOR GOD)

We need to understand the principle and the process by which God releases His blessings in order for us to receive it in full. Once you receive it in full, there is a reason why God entrusted it to you. Just imagine, of all the billions of people on earth, why did God choose you? God can choose another person, but why you? Because God knows you are ready and you can be trusted.

Allow me to unveil the main reason why He wants you to prosper.

God wants you to prosper so that you can become a blessing to others.

God has entrusted the riches to us for a reason. Not only so we can live comfortable lives but also so we can make other people’s lives better.

 Notice what the Lord’s prayer says.

 Give us this day our daily bread.

 What is so strange about this prayer is that it is a personal prayer. But how come we pray, “give US” and not “give ME”?

I believe God is teaching us to pray not only for our needs but also for the needs of other people.

 We should not think only of ourselves but also of others.

 You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God (2 Corinthians 9:11).

Anawangin a Total Adventure!

Image

In this place I’ve realized a lot of things in life. I’d felt the total independence that I longer for a long time. I just realized that the more basic life in this part of the world, the more peaceful of mind I got. In this place, I temporarily forgot the real world. I learned to continue my dream. To discover my strength and weaknesses.

The place is a wonderful God’s creation. I really appreciate it’s uniqueness and wilderness.

How to get there:

There are many bus company offering a comfortable ride. One of it is the Penafrancia Bus Company. The journey take an 8-hour bus ride from Araneta-Cubao Bus Terminal or Pasay Bus Terminal to Naga City. Upon arrival in Naga City take an Aircon Van to Sabang Port. Once you are in Sabang port, take the Boat that goes to Caramoan Guijalo Port. Your travel company will welcome you to the Guijalo Port.

Top 3 Things to do in Caramoan:

1. Island Hoping – Visit the islands of Matukad, Lahus Hunongan and Gota Beach. The main thing for me, really, is the beach. We spend most of our time just swimming and enjoying the green scenery.

2. Explore the town and see hundreds of birds playing or Just simply enjoy the lush green surrounding, the river, Caramoan town hall, souvenir shops. market etc… a whole new different thing to do.

3. Camping along the pristine white beaches.
