a new lease in life.

this is it... i'm back to my own self... well, sort of. Image

i still can't go out or my mom will kill me. Image but i can do some household chores now... some, i'd not dare do, of course... Image mas mahirap ang mabinat eh... mahal ang gamot no! so, pawalis-walis lang... tapos asikaso ng bata... Image

i still hate the side effects... Image but i can live with it... Image

i'm looking at my life more clearly now... Image i love myself more Image... i'm taking good care of it... the trip to the hospital made me realize that if i weren't careful, that bed could've been my deathbed... just look at my beautiful kids... i can't have that! No way...

this is a very life-changing event for me... i'm taking everything positively now... Image


i'm so lucky to have a very supportive family and friends, who loves me dearly. Special mention ang parents ko, bes ko, mi azucar, si Han, si Anne, si Basti, si Bon, si Poupee, si June at Wei, at sa lahat ng iba pang nagdasal para sa kin... hindi nanawa sa pagintindi sa mga hinaing ko (alam ko nakakapikon na minsan)...

sa nangyari sa kin, i learned that mahirap umasa sa ibang tao... lalo na sa asawa... i don't wanna pour out all my sentiments about him here... suffice it to say that i was devastated, disappointed, hurt... and just UNLOVED... eh, ano naman ang bago dun, di ba? Lagi namang ganun... i guess he just doesn't love me enough... the way I want him to.


anyway, i'm now thinking of putting up a business... since i cannot work normally anymore... i have to rethink my future... Image

first on the list is the foodcart biz... 'uso' to ngayon... it's quick and a no-brainer... kahit ako nabili sa foodcarts eh... 5 pesos lang, may sago ka na... 10 pesos, may squidballs... pantawid gutom! Image

yung isa kong kakilala kumikita siya ng 2T a day... ngayon, times 30 days mo yun... that's 60T... sabihin mo ng minus the rental na about 15T, tapos manpower na 3T lang daw... tsaka stocks... malaki pa rin kita mo... daig mo pa nagwork sa call center... 1-2 carts are enough to provide for my family... 3-4 will make our lives easier.


but of course, i have a lot to think about... Image i have to do research first... i have done some already... and i have 3 options...

i could go into Smokey's... no initial cash outlay... 200T investment is payable in 2 years... there's no need for advertising because it's established already... but i think 200T is too much... (natakot ako bigla Image)

or, i could go into a smaller franchise.. with initial cash outlay of 20-60T for everything and initial stocks... wala pa lang dun yung rental ng place.

or, i could have it done myself... pati carts, pati legalities... kakapagod lang to, pero i might save some money, plus i get to choose my business name. mejo partial ako dito coz i dont wanna strain myself too much...

so what else do i have to consider? Image

1. money
2. legalities
3. manpower
4. stocks
5. location

and a lot more things...

location is the most crucial of all... Image dapat ma-traffic... dapat malapit lang para di ako lugi sa pamasahe... i have to at least visit the site 2x or 3x a day to check up on things... so, i'm thinking of the MRT, La Salle Taft, or the new palengke mall that's been on construction here sa amin...

hopefully, sana magawa ko siya before December comes para may pamasko naman kami ng family ko no! *hahahaha* Image

Image the advantages?

-sarili mo oras mo
-i get to spend more time with the kids
-i get to be my own boss
-you get to have money!

Image the disadvantages?

-no medical insurance *wakokoko*
-some things i don't wanna think about as of the moment

seryoso ko di ba? Image lahat naman ng biz may kaakibat na risks eh... and i think if i don't do it now, i'd lose my nerve and probably never will do it...

so, i'm taking my chances... LAKAS NG LOOB... TIBAY NG DIBDIB... MAG-CLUSIVOL ARAW-ARAW... BAWAL MAGKASAKIT... Image

Image this is really is it. Image

i've fucked up all too many times... i have too much bad luck already...

Image ENOUGH! Image

Image this is my new lease in life. Image

so, blow me a kiss... Image wish for my success... Image pray for me more... Image and i promise to do the same for you. Image

p.s.
ang cute ng smilies di ba? sana there was a turtle smiley!

sana din, may magbigay sa kin ng body pillow na may turtle designs! Malapit na Pasko! *parinig-parinig* ***wakokoko***
