We all need to audit  our lives once in a while. If we forget why we are doing what we are doing then we are in for breakdown along the way.

I need to step-up and improve our family's business. So that I can resign from my 8am-6pm job and have more time for our son. Hopefully have another one next year.

My relationship with God is  the most important part of my life that I need to improve
My relationship with my family.
I am nobody.

Nobody is PERFECT.

Therefore, I am PERFECT!.

I wish that my life is like a balance sheet which can be balance by auditing here and there, very easy so uncomplicated...but reality bites I have to deal with my problems head on...I admire the ladies who took charge of their lives both financially and emotionally...

I think I might need to do a self check. I am quite bored of how my life is going right now. I have a nice family but there's still something in me that needs filling.

I want to do something worth while.

I need to improve myself. Take control of my finances. Look for greener pastures abroad for the future of my family.

I want to help my parents.

One of the things I realized through the years is that we should put our trust in God, He will be the one to control every aspects of our life. Dati,  I was in control of my life and I want to do the best for my family and finances. I thought I can overcome everything by my own strength, but I was wrong. I cant be the God of my own life.
