Actually medyo #notetoself ko din kasi nagkakaroon nanaman ako ng “anxieties for the future”. Paano next year may income pa ba ko? Paano sa next five? Then I realized.. these are the same intrusive thoughts I had 10, 5, 3 years ago.
10 years ago I quit my office job as an IT professional to pursue my passion as a blogger/writer. Sobrang laking risk and insecurity sa income.. pero si Lord na lang talaga and may mga dumarating na project at campaigns
Aaminin ko dahil sa Tiktok at Social Media medyo tumumal ang mga raket sa blogs, kaya 5 years ago thanks to my friend @dishysammy (RIP) I was able to land a job and career in freelancing and marketing.
But the COVID came, Sammy left, and my manager during that time was toxic, and I had to quit even if the pay was good. It was affecting my mental health na din e.
Bumalik ako sa WALA. Umabot nga na muntikan na ko pahiramin ni @mommylevym ng pera para lang may pambili ng tablet si Geof sa school.
Pero may dumating na trabaho, kukunin akong intern writer, tuturuan ako ng pagiging journalist. Lahat ng hindi natutunan sa school, pero the pay wasnt that good..
6 months later ginawa akong permanent.. another year later napromote ako.. and surprisingly.. blogs are back in business.
Minsan lagi tayo nagaalala, nagiisip.. “Paano na bukas?”
Pero basta hindi tayo susuko, at may mga kaibigan tayong laging handang tumulong.. tuloy ang laban ng buhay.
