What to do if I had more time and money...

If there are two things in the world that I would want to have more of, that would be Time and Money.  I could just imagine the endless possibilities out there for me.  Blessed are the few who gets to enjoy more time in this world and have more than enough money.

But I guess one can't really have both, right?  It's either you have more time but not enough money, or you have all the money in the world, but so little time to enjoy it.

Anyway, a friend of mine posted a link on my Facebook wall which sparked my interest because the mission was to send in articles about the 10 things we would do if we had more time, and another 10 things if we had more money. So let me give it a shot, I'm sure this would be fun.

 10 Things I would do if I had more time:

- Visit my family in Tacloban more often.

- Go on vacation with Ross and the kids every month to different tourist destinations here in the Philippines.

- Go on a Disney cruise with my kids, visit Disneyland and universal studios.

- Catch up on sleep.  (Shallow but true, I think I'm sleep deprived, so I guess if I had more time I'd want to sleep in a few extra hours each day :).

- Finish reading the novels I bought neatly stacked on my desk collecting dusts, lol!!  I have this habit of buying novels/books, yet I still have a couple unfinished ones. (Booksale is the culprit)

- Go on a get-together with my college best friends over the weekend.

- Enroll in culinary arts.

- Learn how to play any musical instrument.

- Start working on my porcelain clay project which I have been putting off since October of last year.

- Write in my journal more.

 10 things I would do If I had more money:

- First on the list is of course to fund all activities in my "if I had more time" list which requires money, lol!!

- Buy a house and car for my family.

- Put up a grocery business.  (I have been wanting to have a sari-sari store when I was a kid, I still dream about it, but now I have leveled-up and aimed for a grocery store!)

- Open a time deposit account for my kids.

- Help my father with his business by giving a new look to his Auto Shop, renovate the whole area, and adding an internet/coffee shop to attract more customers.

- An all-expense paid trip around the world for my parents, and even my brothers if they want to tag along. :)

- Fund a charitable institution which would aim to support every indigent patient to ensure that they would be receiving the best medical or surgical treatment they need.

- Extend financial assistance to relatives who are in need.

- Send my husband to the best Endoscopic and Laparoscopic center there is the world for his training.

- Put up an Endoscopic and Laparoscopic Center for my husband after he finishes with his training.

My list could go on forever.  I must admit I had fun imagining things I would be doing If I had more time and money.  I guess it's good to dream and imagine what you would want your life to be.  Imagine what your future would be like everyday.  As they say, "there's no limit to what you can dream". 

Don't stop dreaming, even if you fail.  Never give up until you find a way to fulfill them.

Remember Only the Happy Moments

One thing on my wish list is to go on a "real vacation".  Because from what I could remember, vacation with my family is heading to the beach house of my in-laws.  For once I would want to go someplace where I could enjoy a few days off, just relax and not having to worry about anything else.

I don't really want to elaborate on what happened during that vacation, but I guess what matters most to me is that I was with Ross and the kids, I saw my sister in law and my cute nephew, Ross was able to spend time with his brothers, and I got to spend a few days with my side of the family.  I guess that's worth it!!

And as what I have been telling myself, I just want to remember only the happy moments of that vacation, and I guess these photos would say it all....

It was around 7 in the morning, we all decided to head out for a walk.  The main beach house was located about a few hundred meters from the main road.

I had to carry Micah because the sand gets in between her toes and she would start screaming that her feet were dirty.

We didn't actually go that far because Andre also wanted me to carry him because as I would quote what he said, "Mommy, Andre's feet is tired".  

A visibly tired and grumpy Andre.  Walking is definitely not one of his favorite activities..

After playing and running around, it's time to cool down.. so my kids decided to use the garden hose as shower and had another 30 minutes of goofing around.

We skipped going to the beach that day because of the big waves and we spotted a couple of jellyfish swimming around.

That same afternoon, the water was calm and we decided to head out and watch the sunset...

We were able to see the sun go down... such a beautiful sight.  And this made me realize that what matters most is that at the end of each day, is to be with the ones you love dearly, and forget those who don't.  Life is too short to waste it on people who are so bitter that they do not learn to appreciate the good things around them.

"The happiest memories are those spent with family."
