Saying Goodbye

Saying goodbye to something that you really like and love to do is hard, especially when you're on top of the game (maybe it's the same reason why Manny Pacquiao keeps on boxing).

I've been hosting and organizing events for the past 10 years now, and I'm super happy doing it! Meeting new friends and business contacts is a big bonus too. But in the process, doing what I like keeps me away from my family, not just physically but also emotionally and mentally. Preparing for an upcoming event entails concentration and a lot of creative thinking, so mentally, even if I work at home, my children are not allowed to play and disturb mom.

Doing what I do best gives me happiness...but the happiness that my family needs to receive from me is being sidelined.

I have yet to finish my last hosting job on December 26. After that I will have to decide whether to continue doing what I love to do or not.


  1. do it for friends na lang hehe

  2. Awww. I know how it feels. Maybe there's another time for us to pursue what we love.

    By the way, I love your new layout.

  3. a shift to another business venture? whatever it is i know you'll going to get the best thing not just for you but for your family most especially. Aja to that Joy. You'll still have me as ur follower here ><((;>

  4. P: You're right, doing it for friends is much joyful, walang stress, all fun...Sati's Party is one of those that I truly like...walang KJ...

    Nicquee: Hay, it's really much complicated to be a woman than a man. we are expected and required to be all that we can be...

    Bunnz: For you girl, on your wedding, just give me a ring (not wedding ring hahaha) I'll help you. IKAW PA!!!

  5. I felt sad din after reading your post. It's really hard to be a working mom, difficult to find the balance between work and family. I've been really busy, too, since September, and I feel really guilty that my work has affected the time I spend with my kid. Hayz! What are we working moms to do?

  6. Naks, extra pa si Justin ko sa post mo! LOL!

  7. Awww.. but of course, you have to prioritize your family. Maybe sometime in the future, when the kids are all grown up, you may go back to hosting and event planning again. You decide. Good luck dear! :D


Thank you for the joyful comments!
