Every year, I look forward to going to Christmas parties. These are times when you get to see friends and family that you have not seen for the past year. One of the Christmas parties or gatherings that I always look forward to is the one with my fellow Blissmakers. As you all know, I contribute some articles every year at MakeitBlissful.com. This site was built by my dear friend, Martine De Luna, to inspire women to achieve a happy and blissful life. Most of the women here also are part of the WAHMderful Life Community of Women (work-at-home-moms).
This group of women has helped me a lot in the past years, and I am really happy that I got to know this group of amazing women. You want to know why and how this group helped me?
1. This group believes in inclusive growth. Walang iwanan! Obviously, not literally (well, sometime literally, too! hihihi!), but more of the fact that we will do anything to help each other succeed. We will lend out a hand to those in need of inspiration, strength and comfort. We will support the projects of each one in this group, whether it be just posting on social media, sharing contacts or just by praying for each one’s success.
2. This group is comprised of strong willed and empowered women. They stand up for their beliefs, but at the same, they know how to respect other people’s opinions. When we disagree about stuff, we don’t burden each other with bombarding them with guilt, stress and anger.
3. Even with each one’s busy lives, when we get to see each other, it’s like we just saw each other yesterday. We all value friendship and we know that friendship doesn’t mean holding them too tightly or hugging them close to you always. Just like love, in friendship, you need to see your friends grow and achieve their dreams. We can’t be too possessive with our friends, too.
4. We just feel that everyone genuinely cares for each one! This is the reason why I am also excited to build our (Martine of MakeitBlissful.com, Frances of MommyTopaz.com and yours truly) new project, Beauty Biz Bliss, which was created for women of all ages.
I truly had a wonderful time time with the Blissmakers. Kuddos to Audrey for preparing this gathering! Thank you especially also to Dr. Kaycee of Luminisce! 🙂 I will write a part two on what we did and what was inside our Blissful Box!
