Our Goals on 2014

Last 2013, we have been truly blessed because 2 out of 3 goals are already crossed out on our list. Ang this year, we decided to list other goals that Ian and I will work for. Mas challenging kasi kung meron kaming ganito para kahit papano ma-momotivate kaming magsipag sa work and business. Anyway, we had a very heart to heart talk right after the New Year’s Celebration. We discuss the things that we accomplished for the past year and need to achieve for 2014. So to sum our conversation that night, here are the list of our goals/target/dreams for this year.

Since one of our goals last year is to have a child, God gave us one healthy baby girl which I can bear anytime, any day of this month. Wow! Mixed emotions! So 1st thing in our list is to have a safe and normal delivery, I have no idea about the labor pain but most of my friends told me na super sakit daw nun na halos lahat ng santo tatawagin mo na. No one can explain where the pain comes from, basta masakit daw. Honestly, I’m scared but whenever I look at our baby’s 3D photos and watch her 4D video para akong nagiging si super woman na kakayanin ang lahat.  We know that there are lots of people praying for my safe delivery and for my baby’s health. I know after all the pains and sufferings that I will encounter in bearing our little princess, the next thing will be the endless happiness.
We want a Normal Delivery, not only because it is much cheaper than CS but also the healing process. Wala ka ngang mararamdaman sakit or labor pains pag CS ka pero after mong manganak, dun ka naman mag susuffer sa sakit ng sugat. Kaya we pray na mag normal delivery ako kay Rhian.

O db, kahit di pa lumalabas si Rhian one of our goals this year is to bring her closer to God by means of baptism. We want to give her a private christening and simple celebration with the family and close friends. Do you believe na halos mag canvass na kami ng place para sa reception. Hehe. Ganon kami ka excited.  

Having a happy family is one of our dreams ever since we got married. Ian wants to have 3 kids while I wanted to have only 2. Hehe. When we found out that I’m pregnant, we cancelled our trips and minimize our expenses, but now that few more days to go, our baby will come out, hubby and I decided to have our 1st out of town trip once by July which marks our 2nd wedding anniversary. Wow! O db, this time 3 na kaming mag travel. Aba mas masaya ata mag travel lalo na pag kasama na si baby. We’re so excited na talaga! So after kong manganak, next thing that I will do is to plan our 1st ever summer vacation! Oooppss.. Binyag muna pala nya. Hehe.

I know we already include this thing last year but we are failed to achieve it due to budget constraint. But still we include this as our goal for 2014. Cross fingers..

Being pregnant needs a lot of money, I swear! From check-ups, laboratory, medicines, test and even buying things for the baby needs a thousand of pesos. We also spend too much for the utility bills like rent, meralco, pldt, cable, groceries every week, etc. One day, we discuss that we should invest a house, aba yung may ari ng pinag rerentahan lang namin ang kumikita eh. I mean, bayad kami ng bayad ng 10k per month but still we don’t own the house. Mabigat yun para samin kung tutuusin, but this is our decision we made even before we got married, na mag rent para mas masanay kaming mamuhay na kaming 2 then if ever we have extra money, we will process the house loans that PAGIBIG offers.
We tried to do it last year but since I got pregnant, all our savings was stopped due to my condition. Mahirap pag sabayin yung mga gastos sa pagbubuntis at pag iipon para sa pang down ng bahay. And now, we strongly believe na right after kong manganak, mapabinyagan si baby medyo luluwag na kami (cross fingers) and we will focus on our other goals for this year.
So that’s it for now. I really believe that we can achieve all of these within the year with the help of our Lord! Just think positive and focus on the goals!
