What is your Why?


"So many people they want to have more money, to become wealthy, to become millionaires but they don't know 'Why'. And that's why they don't have more money, they're not wealthy and they're not millionaires." - A Filipino millionaire living in Hayward, California, USA

I am learning that there is great power in knowing my"Why". In my journey towards the life of my dreams, I need to constantly remind myself of the reason I do the things I do.

My Why helps me set my priorities. It helps me guard the treasures that matter to me - treasures which no amount of money can buy.

My Why keeps my faith anchored. It helps me to remain hopeful and to keep my eyes on what is ahead even when the circumstances are difficult.

My Why spurs me to keep on pushing. It helps me get out of my comfort zone and motivates me to keep on working until I see results.

If you don't know your Why, you are not alone. I, too, didn't know what my Why was until Someone led the way. I am most willing to walk with you.

What is your treasure?


Facebook asks, "What's on your mind?" and Twitter asks, "What's happening?" Now what question can I ask on my blog without the risk of being sued for plagiarism?

Up there, beneath my blog's title, it says: A treasure chest of wisdom-filled living, blessed abundance and infinite possibilities.

What are you looking for? And...Why are you so serious?! C'mon. Twitch your lips a little bit - smile. Yup. No, not that smile. Try to remember something which made you smile lately. Anything. Done? Love it. You look awesome. Now say this aloud, "I am awesome!" No, not me, you! Haha. That's better. Say it again, I am awesome! Louder: I am awesome!

Let's take a walk down memory lane and read my very first post: "Sowing and Reaping" This was way back August 24, 2007. So this year, my blog will be 8 years old. For now, I can only imagine how we're going to celebrate it. "Imagine." For now. And I imagine, for now, your heart is smiling.

Sowing and reaping is the very heart of this blog. To sow seeds to inspire you which will ultimately reap for you a harvest which sprouted from your ability to see for yourself what real treasure is. What do you hold dear? What is most valuable to you? Something for which, no matter what happens, you will do whatever it takes, just to make sure it doesn't go to waste or get stolen?

Today I am changing my question on the right sidebar from "What does 'treasure' mean for you?" to "What is your treasure?" Please feel free to leave a message or a comment below.


I am so awesome grateful to announce that I'll be sharing this blog with my long-lost college bestriend, Belle!

Belle is a wonderful person. If you're looking for real treasure, this woman is one. Incidentally, her banking background also makes her a credible candidate as treasurer.

Belle and I graduated from the same university and were employed in the same bank shortly after college. We're both firstborn in the family. Belle is currently based in Austin, Texas, with her rock-of-a-husband Aaron while I am in our beloved Philippines with my husband SouldierRay of sunshine. Thanks to the wonders of technology, Belle and I will be using this blog together as a platform to showcase  wisdom-filled living, blessed abundance and infinite possibilities!

I am really excited for what's ahead! Belle and I have been through tough times in our friendship and in our individual lives but as God is the Repairer of Broken Walls, He came for people like us, like you, to have an abundant life. He has given us a wonderful opportunity to rebuild our wall together because He is awesome! He gave us a wall of faith and action to protect our treasure - our family, our dreams and our future, from falling into the hands of the Enemy who comes to steal, kill and destroy.

Together, we'll be sharing our journey on the road to success, little by little, bit by bit, one blogpost at a time. It will not be easy, for sure, but it will be all worth it in the end. As Arnold Palmer used to say, "The road to success is always under construction." We'll try our very best not to complain!

Say it again: I am awesome!

The Goodness Continues

TREASURE IT! It was in February 2014 when my nephew Seth, "Our Little Goodness Ambassador" got his Goodness Rising origami card to support Human Nature's GK Village for Typhoon Yolanda survivors. What has happened since then? Watch this:

It is heartwarming to be a part of this cause, even indirectly. It is encouraging to see how a little help can come a long way. It is reassuring to know that even when it seems no one is looking, God knows everything.

1 John 3:18-20 New International Version (NIV)

18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
19 This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in His presence: 20 If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and He knows everything.

May we always remember that God is good and His goodness - His love - never fails.
