#Hello2017! We’re a few hours away from welcoming the New Year, and I can’t help but think of the wonderful adventures (and memories!) I’m about to embark on. Only God knows what’s in store for me this upcoming year, but what I’m constantly praying for is good health for the family. Sabi nga sa commercial, “Bawal magkasakit.”
You would agree when I say that 2016 has been tremendously good and nerve-wracking at the same time. I can’t really enumerate everything that has happened but all I know is that there’s always a chance for me (and you) to change for the better. How? For me, I can do volunteer work as a way of giving back to the community. I can also exert extra effort in taking good care of Mother Nature by skipping chemical-laden makeup. There are a million ways to be a better individual, and they should start within you. (I sounded like a beauty queen right there!)
Over the years, I’ve been an advocate of The Change Planner. Like what I’ve mentioned in my previous blog posts, The Change Planner a.k.a. This Journal Will Actually Change Someone’s Life has contributed to what/who I have become. And no, this isn’t just your typical planner that you pepper with meetings and endless work-related stuff. In fact, this hard-bound journal comes with tons of interesting facts, self-empowerment tips, life-changing coupons, bucket lists, and more that will keep you motivated throughout the year. Life sucks sometimes, ‘di ba? With The Change Planner, you can wake up to a happy Monday morning without cursing it anymore.
And oh, did I mention that FreeSpeech Publications – the awesome group behind this inspiring journal – has increased the number of their scholars to three?
Evelyn Angkasan (their scholar since last year) plus Ailah Bautista and Diane Mulingbayan from Abra de Ilog, Occidental Mindoro are now studying at the Kolehiyo ng Lungsod ng Lipa in Batangas. Evelyn and Ailah are studying to become teachers while Diane dreams of becoming a policewoman.
In addition to their scholarship program, FreeSpeech Publications also sponsors Lifeline Foundation‘s Medical Missions, bringing medical and dental services to underserved areas in the Philippines. Now, who is ready for C-H-A-N-G-E? Still questioning why you should get The Change Planner 2017? My friend, please feel free to scroll down.
#LIFEISNOWHERE: I guess this is going to be my mantra for 2017. Repeat after me: “Life is now here.”
There are different artworks for every month. The one pictured here is from January. Gusto ko ‘yung, “Be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.”
Some dates are filled in with unusual holidays that will keep your eyes glued for more facts. 🙂
I love how this weekly self-assessment page is done. This is perfect for Sunday reflections.
It’s time to practice this!
Again, there’s plenty of reflection time in this journal.
Say YES to adventures! It’s true, traveling changed me and how I view the world around me.
It’s funny how the years pass by in a blink of an eye.
Finally, these life-changing coupons are sure to make your loved ones special. 🙂
Before I end this lengthy post, I’d like to thank Betty Romero of FreeSpeech Publications for she never fails to forget me even if we haven’t met in person yet. Keep on inspiring others, Betty! 🙂 I hope to meet you real soon.
Happy New Year, everyone!
