A New me

My marriage of thirteen years ended with my discovery that he had contracted a previous marriage before ours. The first few years of raising the children without their father was very difficult, but i tried not to show it to them. There were countless nights when i pretended asleep beside them but i was crying a lot. In shower, my tears would drain along with the water. Crying had been my refuge. One of my friends noticed how depressed i look. After talking to her, she told me to stop torturing myself and move on with my life. She told me to go out and keep myself busy, and read books or magazines to take my mind off my probs. She suggested chatting on the net, saying that it would help me emotionallyand physically.

After office hours, i would go home immediately, prepare our dinner, and would leave immediately for the internet cafe. I was hooked! I've become happy again, smarter and confident. A lot of people on the chatting world are lewd, so i would end up quarreling with them. Only a few are honest and civilized and some of them offered for marriage. Maybe i'm not ready yet to enter a married life that was once wrought with fear and havoc. I told myself i have to be very careful this time again, as i could not take another failed marriage. I have learned so much with what i have been through. Because of my strong disposition now, I can only feel sad about my yesterday, but tears don't well my eyes anymore because i know, God loves me and He is gonna give the right man for me, in time.

MoneySavvy lesson

I used to spend my money the minute i earned it. The words "budget" and "savings" weren't in my vocabulary. But last month, I learned that a schoolmate in the masteral studies is undergoing chemotherapy for intestinal cancer. Her wife, also a classmate solicited any amount from the graduate school students as they are financially depleted even before her husband was diagnosed of having intestinal cancer. She talked of regrets about having not been saving a little, coz both of them are gainfully employed. Silently, i was asking myself what if it happens to me, am not thinking to have cancer, though but what if i get to be hospitalized for even minor ailments? Where will i get money? What and where will my children go to borrow money?

Suddenly, goosebumps ran through me. I am not young anymore so the probability of me getting hospitalized for some organ dysfunction may happen. I realized that I had to wisen up and become steadfast in sticking up to my financial goals. I had to change my spendthrift ways. Times when i have to watch movies and fave TV programs shall be committed instead to earning alternative sources of income.

Thanks to my classmate for showing me that it was time to think about worthy spending and be money-savvy. I pray that her husband would fight and survive the imminent danger to life of cancer.
