I’m Back — Stronger and More Inspired!

Did you notice that I was gone for a few days? It was because I had fever and then this bad case of intestinal flu. It was horrible! I could not stand because I was too weak. Anyway, I’m better now and I’m stronger and more inspired.

You know why? Secret! haha!

My friends hate it when I say that (kakabitin daw). Well, okay, I’m more inspired because during the time that I got sick, I got to realize that I really need to have a break (REALLY) once in a while and it reminded me on how I love writing and how I miss blogging. I’m a fan of Tim Ferris and I share his teachings, but I always forget to apply the things that he shares (especially if it’s not related to dieting). My sickness is that I hardly say NO (kaladkarin much). Even if my schedule is packed, I always make time for people. But see, this is what happens. You become sick. 🙁

During that time too, I thought about growing up (not physically, obviously), but achieving a better ME! I’m inspired now to look and feel stronger and fitter. I’m inspired to take action in intentionally relaxing. BTW, have you read my article in MakeItBlissful.com (Make Your Own Blissful Home Spa)? Please do read it! Also, I’m more inspired to grow more spiritually.

It’s a few days before my birthday and meditating during that time of weakness was perfect.

Hate being sick!

Hate being sick!

I hated being sick but something good came out from it so I am grateful. How can I can be grateful when every minute I was throwing up in the bathroom?

Well, with every moment in your life, you can choose to look at the glass half empty or half full. I always choose to look at the brighter side of things. It’s always really your call.

Pastel Color Painting Workshop

Today, I am reminded that we need to be thankful for all the talents that the Lord has given us. And how do we show that we are grateful? We need to share this talent with others. I was reminded of this because I saw these set of images and I was reminded that life is really good and there are so many things that we should be thankful for. When you see a picture and try to interpret it, oftentimes, we see what’s sad, depressing, missing and lacking. We don’t see what makes it amazing, lovely, brighter and happy.

I want to show you something, because these set of images really made my day.

It’s amazing how each one of us has been given wonderful talents that can help lift up people’s moods and make their days brighter. If your children have these gifts and talents, be sure to help them develop it.

Do you believe in Soulmates?

I have had an unusual conversation just recently. It was about having soulmates. The group I was with started talking about finding ‘soulmates’ to which I retorted, “uso pa ba yun?” (Do those still exist?). My husband beside me cringed. Lol! I corrected myself and what I really wanted to say is that, “Do soulmates really exist?”. In mind, I was already formulating hundreds of follow-up questions…

*Image from http://deathtothestockphoto.com/

*Image from http://deathtothestockphoto.com/

Do soulmates really exist?

If soulmates are two souls which are supposed to find each other, does that mean those who do not find their soulmate are forever doomed and will forever be lonely?

How is love added into all of these things?

How about commitment?

For love, if you do find your soulmate, is it the same as having really gotten to know true love?

If not, is it fake love or just settling or a decision to commit?

For commitment, if you are committed already then you find your soulmate, will you forever be incomplete?

How will you know if the person is your soulmate anyway?

Are there really three types of soulmates: friend soulmate, lover soulmate and an enemy soulmate?

Do you need to find all three?

And if you find all three, will it make your life better?

And so on and so forth…

See, my mind can go beserk when you give me topics like these. I really don’t know the answers to these. If you do know the answers, please do let me kno because I really want to find out.

An Interview with Mompreneur Martine de Luna of MakeitBlissful.com

How can we oftentimes forget the one’s closest to us? I’ve been interviewing a lot of amazing women entrepreneurs and who do I forget to interview? I forget to share the story of my amazing partner-in-crime (and when I say crime, I actually mean business. Lol!), Martine De Luna.

Mompreneur Martine De Luna of Make it Blissful

Mompreneur Martine De Luna of Make it Blissful

Martine and Family

Okay, let me tell you more about Martine, for those who don’t know her (which is quite impossible, since she’s practically a celebrity to moms). Martine de Luna is a lifestyle design advocate, student of life, a WAHMderful woman; wife to Ton for six years, and mom to Vito for four. An old soul with a love for long walks, books, quiet days on holiday, and a passion for visual storytelling, Martine loves being a “sociable introvert,” a blogger, a writer, and an amateur photographer (mostly on Instagram). Oh, by the way, she ‘says’ she’s an amateur, but I consider her a Pro because she create these amazing photos especially on Instagram (I hate her for this! All of my pictures on Instagram look crappy! haha!). Before becoming a full-time freelancing WAHM — mostly doing online coaching, copywriting and community management — Martine used to be an English teacher, a youth counselor, a magazine staff writer and editorial assistant. Her goal in life? To live each day joyfully despite all odds, and to find “bliss” in the ordinary everyday of being a wife, mom, and student of life.

Interview with Mompreneur Martine de Luna of MakeitBlissful.com

Ginger: Oh my geee! How could I forget you! Good morning, Marts! It’s nice to have you here at MommyGinger.com! I’m really excited to have learn from your experiences and I’m sure other people would love to hear your stories, too and how you made it to where you are now. So, can you tell us more about your brand/business? What is it about and how long have you been in business?

Martine: My brand, Make it Blissful, is really a statement, a collective and a mindset. I started it on my blog, which was formerly called “Dainty Mom.” Through the blog, I offer blog-related events, like blogging and writing workshops. I also offer collaborations, either with other blogs, or with brands that I feel “click” with the Make it Blissful way of thinking.

I also offer freelance digital media-related services, on my professional site, Martinedeluna.com. I launched this about a year ago, when I wanted to step up my freelancing game and go into offering services on a full-time basis. In the past year, I’ve worked with women-run businesses, like wedding blogs, style/fashion blogs and businesses, creative businesses, advocacies, and personal bloggers, mostly through blog consulting, branding, and copywriting.

Make It Blissful Website

Make It Blissful Website

Ginger: With all of these services, who is your primary market?

Martine: Women who have great ideas and need help in putting them into an online platform that will help them in their businesses.

Ginger: I’m just curious, how did you come up with this idea?

Martine: These services I offer — blog coaching, copywriting, developing website experiences, even personal brands for women — they were all based on skills I’d learned as a creative social media manager in a U.S. based business that I used to work for (offshore). During my stint there, I learned how to blog beyond just lifestyle blogging; I learned branding, social media basics, some online marketing, that sort of thing. I was also exposed to brands and businesses abroad, because these were the clients we worked with. A lot of the blogging and social media practices I learned were so different from the local blogging and social media culture. I thought, why not teach these tactics to individuals, so that they could build up their online platforms (websites and blogs) in a way that felt professional, like “DIY PR” or “do it yourself branding.” I called my initial offering “blog coaching,” because I began doing one-on-one freelance coaching with people who wanted to launch a serious, long-term blog.

I also saw that there was a need for busy business owner-women to manage their blogs and social media accounts more effectively. These powerful women often don’t have time to manage these platforms; they are busy building up their businesses. I started offer “web & blog management” for these women, so that I could manage running content, editorial, photography, and make sure their blogs and websites regularly came out with quality content. I likewise complimented this on social media by being their community managers, too.

Workshops

Workshops

Ginger: Amazing! Knowing that this mission would really be hard work, were there any obstacles that you faced when you decided to pursue becoming a Mompreneur?

Martine: Well, I’m only breaking into the local coaching scene. It’s picked up over the last few months. I feel the challenge is in balancing it all: your personal/family life, excelling and improving in your coaching and services, finding time for continuing education, etc. Because I work now on a “per project” or retainer basis, I have to make sure I’m constantly marketing myself and putting myself out there in front of potential clients.

Ginger: What are three traits that you think a Mompreneur should have when starting their own business?

Martine: I think going solo — whether as a freelancer or mompreneur — takes gumption. You have to be willing to take risks so that you can discover where you can really thrive. Of course, you should plan financially and prepare your reserves before going into solopreneurship, into mompreneurship. You also have to learn how to organize your life according to your priorities. You’re your own boss when you become a freelancer, a mompreneur, and that can be both a blessing and a burden! I think mompreneurs and solopreneurs should also have a solid community of like-minded people that they can connect with on a regular basis, especially on days when things get challenging. For instance, I began a community called the WAHMderful Life, in partnership with Manila Workshops. These women are all work-at-home moms, and they find support, encouragement, even work, when they connect in our exclusive Facebook community group, set up especially for them. You can’t be a mompreneur and “be an island.” Find your tribe; grow with a community. They can help you keep going, even during your down and low days!

Make It Blissful-new home slider 1

Ginger: That’s good advice! That’s true. A lot of the support that I got was also through that network. Marting, how about sharing with us any unforgettable moments or lessons that you learned as a Mompreneur?

Martine: I’ll share just one lesson: You have to design your life and be humble about learning how to do things better. Having an outlook of lifelong learning and “life hacking” can take you through your most trying times as a mompreneur.

Ginger: What advice can you give to other Mompreneurs?
Martine: Stay humble. Never stop learning how to do things better. Hire a mentor or a coach to be your constant sounding board. (I owe much of my success to the training and mentorship of business coaches and blog mentors.) Live out your mompreneurship like you’re at the top of your empire: delegate, hire the help you need, create systems so that you can focus on your priorities: family, marriage, and the bigger picture of your business.

Ginger: What are tech tools that you use for your business?
Martine: I can’t live without WordPress! Every business — whether online or offline — needs to have it and leverage it towards their brand, their sales efforts, their lead generation. It’s not just for blogging. With WordPress, you can literally run your business from anywhere in the world.

Ginger: Thank you Martine for sharing with us your insights on being a momprenuer and for sharing your experiences. We wish you more success in all of your endeavors!

How do you use Water Responsibly? (Promo from Manila Water)

In our household, because of how busy we all are nowadays, we tend to just skip over things that we need to oversee. These things are important and can make a huge impact in what we do or in making the world a better place to live in. Some samples are I used to keep track of our electricity consumption on a per month basis, but I get to the point when I’m tired of monitoring it so I stop. Also, I monitor our grocery expenses, but since I found out that we normally spend Php 3500 per week, I stopped monitoring and just set aside that amount for grocery shopping. Another thing that I used to be anal about was water consumption. I used to really check that our bill would not go over a certain amount and I would talk to the helpers if I received bills over the target budget. Nowadays though, I’m less anal about it.

But you know, being conscious of how we spend resources like these are important, not only for our own wallets, but even for society. For electricity, why do you think we have the likes of Earth Hour? For food, we oftentimes tell our children not to waste food, but do we ourselves abide by our own rules. For water, do we use water responsibly? There are a lot of people in our country with no access to the water supply that we have so we need to be thankful and use water responsibly.

So with this, Mommy Ginger and Manila Water is running a campaign called Use Water Responsibly. We would like those on Twitter to help us spread the word and use #usewaterresponsibly when you share tips on how to conserve water.

All you need to do is share a tip on twitter or write the hashtag in a piece of paper and take a photo of you holding the sign and share it on twitter. Don’t forget to tag @manilawaterph and @mommyginj.

To get people excited about this, we are running a promo where you will get very nice prizes from Manila Water. All you need to do is to follow the steps in this widget:

a Rafflecopter giveaway

I will randomly choose three winners and each will get a pack of this amazing leatherette folio…

Do you really understand what Dengue is?

I can’t believe it’s September already. My September last year was crazy-stressful. It was this month last year that I had dengue. I didn’t want to look back on that crazy time, but I figured that I had to do something about telling more people about the dangers of dengue. Especially, when I just heard that one of the daughters of my helper has dengue. So with this, I want to share with people what I learned when I attended the GSK “Aksyon Laban sa Dengue” event last week with Calpol as the paracetamol that is recommended by the World Health Organization as first-line treatment for dengue fever.

 

Aksyon Laban sa Dengue

Aksyon Laban sa Dengue

Mommy Ginger and daughter during Calpol Aksyon Laban sa Dengue Aksyon Laban sa Dengue 2

What I found out about Dengue:

– Dengue is caused by the deadliest insect in the world, the Aedes aegypti mosquito. I learned that once this type of mosquito takes it’s first bite, it will still take time for the virus to develop in the mosquito’s body before it’s bit becomes dangerous.
– Dengue is the most rapidly spreading mosquito-borne disease in the world and is more rampant in countries with tropical climates like the Philippines.
– The Aedes mosquito is attracted to warm bodied preys so dengue actually affects more children than adults (since they love to move around)

“Dengue is a worldwide health issue. Based on WHO records, there have been 100 million dengue cases recorded and 5 percent resulted in death,” points out Department of Health Undersecretary Dr. Eric Tayag. “Last year, the DOH recorded 204,906 dengue cases resulting in 660 deaths while in 2014, there have been 24,900 cases which have resulted in 100 deaths,” Dr. Tayag added.

What you can do to avoid Dengue:
The things that we need to do are really very simple. Just remember the 4S!

Search and Destroy
Seek early consultation
Self protection
Say yes to fogging only when there is an impending outbreak

You can read more about it HERE.

Unite Against Dengue

It’s nice to know that GlaxoSmithKline, one of the world’s leading research-based pharmaceutical and healthcare companies and maker of doctor-recommended Paracetamol Calpol, leads this campaign (Aksyon Laban sa Dengue: A Dengue Fever Awareness and Education Program) together with the Department of Health and the Philippine Pediatric Society. Calpol®, a product of GSK, contains Paracetamol specially designed to offer effective relief from the discomforts of pain and fever among children. Calpol® also has the broad suitability associated with standard paracetamol so you can be assured that it won’t harm your child when used as directed.

“Dengue is a clever and cunning disease,” declares Dr. Sally Gatchalian, secretary of the Philippine Pediatric Society. “It can disguise itself as other diseases. So, during the rainy season, which is when we usually see an increase of dengue cases, it is important to be on the lookout for fever that is at least of two days duration”.

I’m a mom and every time any of the members of my family get sick, we drink paracetamol right away. Fever is one of the signs of dengue, but aside from that, it also comes with headaches, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, muscle and joint aches, rashes, and bleeding manifestations. During the time I had dengue, I had really high fever first for four days with really bad headache (I wanted to slam my head against the wall). I had the rashes though a week after my platelets went back to normal. Paracetamol really helped manage the fever and helped with the pain. I can’t imagine how children with dengue must be feeling, and I think giving them Calpol will really help ease the pain.

Engaging the Barangays

Not everyone has the sane kind of access to information that we have. It’s good that DOH, PPS and GlaxoSmithKline, (Paracetamol Calpol) will be going to selected barangays within Metro Manila with identified high cases of dengue incidence to spread the news on how to eliminate dengue.

The DOH will initially be facilitating the training of health practitioners to discuss new dengue incidence and disease trends as well as updates on its prevention and treatment guidelines. The PPS health committee will then cascade these dengue modules based on DOH guidelines with the selected barangays. On its part, GSK will be bringing doctors to these areas to lead the Dengue information campaign to help Filipinos protect their families and loved ones from this deadly menace.

“You can protect your loved ones by knowing more about this debilitating disease, its prevention and management. At the onset of dengue-related symptoms immediately seek the advice of your family physician. In cases of fever, (paracetamol) Calpol® is the Filipino mom’s partner in providing effective , soothing fever relief that is suitable for children.” adds Yulo. “And because nothing works faster on fever than the Paracetamol in Calpol®, you are assured of your child going back to his normal, playful self again”.

 

Mommy Ginger and other moms taking their commitment against Dengue

Mommy Ginger and other moms taking their commitment against Dengue

I’m doing what I can in spreading the word about how Dengue is such a serious disease. Let’s all try to spread the news about how we can eliminate dengue.

If symptoms persist, consult your doctor. For more information about (Paracetamol) Calpol®, and its Dengue campaign, visit www.calpol.com.ph or like on Facebook at http://facebook.com/CalpolPH
