Ever since I was a child, I dreamed of becoming a doctor. In my teens, I thought I’d take up Law, like my father, but then felt that I still wanted to be a doctor more than a lawyer. But a year before graduating, I had to make up my mind on what course to take in college, and since my father passed away, I felt my mom would have a hard time paying for my tuition if I pursued being a doctor.
So I thought I’d try the next best thing, any course related to the medical field. Being a medical practitioner can still give me that fulfillment so I wanted to learn what Medical Technician jobs or Respiratory Therapy Technician Jobs entail.
I was able to encourage some of my friends to consider those courses too, but when I learned that they wanted to take the course because of the promise of working abroad, I didn’t pursue it. I’m one who is very close to my mom so I can’t even imagine leaving the country without her.
I took up another course and now have a stable 7-4 job, but somehow I still think, “What if I pursued being a medical practitioner?” Would I be more happy now? Then I look around me and think that I may not be as well-paid as them, but I’m very happy and content with my family here.
Blogging as I was told was being able to chronicle my life with my blog. Despite being an online repository of rants and raves, I have also managed to receive some opportunities to make money blogging.
I know I’m not at the level where I can say that I’m earning as much as I was when I had a regular 9-hour job but still, this is something that I can do while I’m also doing what I love the most, caring for my family. I get to work on my own time without sacrificing anything else. And although it’s not a “career” yet as of this time, the little that I earn goes a long way in helping out with the finances.
Aside from being able to earn money, one of the other rewards I have received through blogging is a network of friends that I treasure very close to my heart now. We have a common goal of being a successful parent to our children (and a responsible partner to our husbands), and because we’re all bloggers we also share some tips and experiences on how to make our blogging lives better and more profitable.
Some of us earn more than others, some even earn more than what they used to when they had a full time job. But as long as we continue sharing and exploring new ideas and avenues, our blogging and mommy lives will definitely remain happy and fulfilled, all the time.
I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.
Today, this blog will test the waters. I’ve always believed that two heads are better than one and we’re trying that out now. Hopefully it will be as smooth as possible but I know that I will never be alone. I know I will seek help for some time but I know you all will not let me down.
Just bear with us for now. This might not be a big change for you, but it is for us.
