My First Hive Introduction post from @monette

in #introduceyourself8 months ago (edited)

Our faith should be our steering wheel not our spare tire.

I'm not always a good daughter to Him, most of the time I fail Him, but by His grace He always brings me back to the path He has planned for me.

Psalm 119:105
Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path

Hello Everyone good day! This is my first blog post on this site.
First let me introduce my self first, I'm Simonette Buban from Philippines, A graduate of Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education major in Chemistry, A Single Mom of a handsome and a smart Boy who is 22 years old now..taking up BS Civil Engineering, It is seriously hard to be a single parent. You have to deal with all of the parental duties while juggling work, cleaning the house, cooking dinner, having relationships with others, and what happens if you get sick?
You certainly cannot call in and take the day off from beiúng a parent! one of my friend ask me “how do I fill my free time” doing household chores and after work…hmmm free time, what is that? I had to think about what exactly is free time for me… I think its the time that I am doing what I enjoy. Or doing something that “I” actually picked to do. It’s not a school meeting, or picking up my son, returning work emails. That is not free time to me…

I love having some much needed down time, but I also need to have activities.. it’s a happy balance that keeps me sane. Its hard to find what works and what doesn’t.. Or what is too much down time and what feels like I am over loaded.

It seems that in the night, I have more so called free time. I have definitely experienced a night where I was bored or lonely. Many of these nights can get long… And how do I get out of the rut of just sitting at home on the couch and eating Junk foods… I do spend many nights doing that, and some nights that is much needed. However, I have learned to find other things to fill my time.

And sometimes it is such a push to do it…It’s a push to get out or make plans.

I have been working for almost 25 years. I’ve enjoyed my work, for the last eight years or so, I’ve kind of stagnated, which I didn’t mind since I still enjoyed the work. However, I’m getting bored (and frustrated that I’m not earning more or progressing). I think I might want to change industries, but I’m also open to the idea of staying in my industry, just at a different company (they hquestion is: Where do I begin? I have a family and a mortgage. and I don’t want to start at the bottom and have to work my way up again.

First of all, I am not too late and I am not alone. It’s not unusual for careers to undergo a shift, even after decades. So how do I find a job that’s more about what I want and more meaningful?
I need to know my reality. The truth is, is going to make my career change happen for me I need to take action every day toward my goals, no matter how small. i need to find that once I get the ball rolling, the process will begin to gain momentum, and taking action will become a comfortable habit rather than something to be avoided.

No one is going to make my
career change happen for me, it may take a while, but the opportunities are out there. I need to find a new job an adventure by having a solid game plan and seeking out the employers that put a high value on your valuable wisdom and experience. Most of all, I don’t give up.I'll Go for what I want and do the things were meant to do. The time is now!
Until I found this, thanks to my Facebook friend who introduce to me to do this blog, a lifetime career that my son and my niblings will inherit when I'm gone.
I hope you find my introduction interesting, till my next blog!Godbless!

Welcome to the Hive community @monette!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Seven suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
  2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, keychain and Peaklock,
  3. The owner password is only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your passwords; copy and store offline,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit, and be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own.
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once , and
  7. Do Not open any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @brittandjosie and @jamerussell from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Hivians available who can help you; you can click to go to The Terminal in Discord here:

Have fun and happy Hiving!

Thanks so much

Ok thanks
