The first day of 2016 has arrived. And this year, I would like to put greater time doing the things I love doing, my passions. There are several of it, but I would like to practice discipline now and time management no matter what. I'm afraid I worried too much for other things I really have no control of and probably would not even get credited for, so right now, I will still be the old me, concerned and responsible, but maybe I will just let things be, besides, I'm freed the last quarter of the year, so Thank you Lord God! You are giving me enough time to do the things I love. Sorry cannot elaborate much! hahaha!
When I say time management, I'm thinking of my online business, my blog and my garden. These passions of mine have made me survived stress and have somehow saved me financially too, so they deserve my time, don't they?
I assume I have a responsibility to my followers and friends to have regular posts with a minimum of one or two in a week. So now, I think the draft section on my blog would and should always be filled. I admit I will just make post during my free time and would not do so in weeks if I'm in no mood. 2016 will change that (God I hope!). And a more quality post and photos will surely come your way too. I've known that by now. I have to give the best I can if I want to stay and not just fill the blanks with so-so posts. I've been wanting to put up a blog a long time ago but I do not know how to start up, 2015 has given me that. It has made me start up and I just love it. I see my heart in it. So, a more serious (but still funny) Bulakenya blogger will come your way this 2016.
Oh well, you might be thinking what that is, that's the name of my online store. I chose it because I want to, hahaha, but seriously I chose it because it is close to my real name, and I want the name of my store sounding like my real one, so that's how shallow the story was hahaha! I have put it aside too last year, resulting to my sales lowering and the facebook followers of my store thinning up. Of course who would want to follow a dormant store. I still have plenty of stocks now and I promise the sun I'm going to clear it all out as soon as I can and purchase for more. I'm even planning to put up my own designs because I'm a craft lover. But that is not a promise yet, I will still look for designs and materials to start up with. I realize now should always be the time to start and make it big. Nothing comes off just as easy. Hard work will give it all to you. So, hopefully, lazy me, go away please!
My love for nature and gardening is not a secret. I really am considerably an old school liking and appreciating these things. But, well, I will continue doing so. I've grown in a huge yard with lots of trees and plants and animals and fresh air, so now you could understand why I would grow old still loving these things. My time for gardening will still be, as it was before, every morning when I wake up, weekends or weekdays. It just relieves me from stress. Seeing things grow and flourish in front of my very eyes. I would just like to beautify my plants more by making more compost because the soil is where the plants get their nutrients.

Our New Nipa Home
No, there's no photo yet because it will still be purchased. My husband and I are planning to build our dream home one day at that field I featured in one of my post, so I could own a bigger garden and he could raise more animals, but that's a lot of money, so for now a native bahay kubo (nipa hut) will do. Our funds will go first to the fences to cover up the areas which is quite big. And this is what's giving me enough reasons to get serious with things, a little earning will add so much to our funds. I'm excited to wake up one day listening to the singing birds and looking at the lovely blooms, only an imagination for now, one to two years and it will be reality. God bless us! Don't worry guys, it was not too far from civilization, it is just a few walks away from where I am now but it's not beside the highway, like where we live now, and we'll have a wifi for sure.
A lot of plans eh? Like I said, inevitable things happen, no matter how much you've planned it. I've never forgotten the Disney movie I watched countless times The Lion King, and the song in there has been kept within me, Hakuna Matata. Just enjoy and do the things that makes us happy. Let's put it all out! Love, live, learn! No worries!
Happy 2016 my loves!!!
