This topic is inspired by the article of @Eybyoung a few days ago about unending grind wherein she mentioned me because she knows that I am also a stay at home mom who keeps on grinding here and I commented on that article that we need to grind as long as theres an opportunity to grind because we never know if tomorrow if we can still do that.
Ofcourse , we all have the same reason. To earn money but aside from earning money I also have my reasons..
Before I became a stay at home mom I am working at a BPO company in Ayala and I resigned because of circumstances. Then I have no choice but to stay at home to breastfeed my baby and as a person who was used in working , I am still on the period of adjusting. I thought of working in Acadsoc that time but it seems I am not ready yet and I don't have a laptop. I tried to do eloading business to earn some money so that I will not depend on my husband salary when it comes on my personal needs. Then I tried to do online selling but it's not successful because I am having a hard when it comes on delivering the items to the customer because my husband was working in Manila.
Then I tried to search how to make money online and I found the video of Tristan Ruiz about different platforms that offers money. I tried bling games , surveys and more and I eager to earn money not just the sake of money alone but for fulfillment. Maybe because I am in post partum depression that time and I belittle myself for being a stay at home mom real quick. I tried different messenger bots , pyramid scheme and got scammed but it didn't stop me to find ways because I want to be productive while taking good care of my son.
Unti I met this platform and earn decent money.
I am grinding because I want to help my husband to save for our future.
I am grinding because I want to be productive and show people that stay at home moms can generate income too.
I am grinding because I have a dream and I want to do it little by little.
I am grinding because it's fun and fulfilling.
I am grinding because I can earn and at the same thing I am learning new things.
I am grinding because I want to embrace every opportunity as long as I can manage to do it.
I am grinding because I want a change. A change of routine as a stay at home mom.
I am grinding because somehow I can also inspire others to grind especially a mom like me.
I am grinding because of cravings. Yes , cravings are my motivations too.
I am grinding because I want to save for my husband's eye medication.
I am grinding because of the monthly bills in the house.
A lot of reason why I am grinding.
Ofcourse I am, being a stay at home mom is not easy plus the idea that you need to grind everyday. I feel tired sometimes. I feel demotivated also but at the end of the day I still encourage myself to keep on grinding because I have a goal. Those goals keeps me motivated.
A few days ago , my father told me because he saw me holding my back and said " Anak , magpahinga ka din ah. Wag puro pera. Palagi ka yatang puyat. Baka napabayaan mo na sarili mo. " . Then I told my father that I am okay and I take care of myself also. I already experienced of being sick because of over exposure in gadgets and also not sleeping early that's why I learned my lesson on that. Don't push ourselves if we already feel something strange on our body.
Unending grind is okay but we need to make sure that we also value our health because health is wealth. This is sound so common to us now but that's reality. Aanin mo naman lahat ng pera mo kung chugi kana. So take care of yourself 💚
