You remember a few posts ago when I wrote:
“2 things I’m excited about. #1. it is something I cannot say yet. But this is something big. I have thought about this so many times. There was something very painful that happened to me recently that pushed me to make this decision. The irony of it. You know you’re making the right decision when everything goes smoothly. You will know you are being led to the right path. I have prayed for this for a very long time already and finally, it is happening. Soon.”
Read the whole post “Life Per Se” here.
I promised I’ll tell you about it. So, today is the day.
One of the person/celebrity that I really admire is Oprah Winfrey. I watched her show everyday since the 90’s up until she closed her show. I subscribed to her magazine O since the maiden issue came out. That’s how much I follow her. And I don’t think I’m the only one. I’m sure most of you here, too.
One specific show many years ago (if I’m not mistaken Maya Angelou was her guest), she said: “the advise I can give to all women is have your own place. Get a place of your own. You don’t have to move out of your home, but keep a place for yourself. Have a sanctuary. A place you can always run to when you need to be alone. A place you can run to when things go bad. Your fall back.”
That piece of advise that she said that day stuck on my mind. I promised myself I am going to do that when the time comes. All I need is to wait for the right time. Maybe when my kids grow up.
The time finally came. As you can see I have raised 3 wonderful kids who has grown to be amazing adults.
It is time.
Raising kids under the situation I was in is no joke. I could have taken the easy way out but I didn’t. I stuck it out and focused on raising my children. Like they always say, I went to hell and back.
And the result is my kids have grown to be good, responsible, independent, and loving human beings. Not to mention all good looking (lol).
I told myself I just don’t need a place of my own. I earned and deserved a beautiful, expensive, the best place of my own. I am not going to f*cking settle for less. I deserve paradise.
When I said: “You know you’re making the right decision when everything goes smoothly. You will know you are being led to the right path.” I meant the universe conspired with me and led me to paradise.
I swear to god. I did not even have to look hard. The very first place I saw. It took me 1 day to find it and just 1 week to seal the deal. If that is not a sign for you. I don’t know what is.
Paradise, handed to me on a silver platter.
I did something right in my life.
My paradise is just 10 minutes away from home. And it is just the way I imagined it to be.
I have always loved hotel life. That’s one of the reasons why all my bedsheets are white, all my towels are white, ‘cos every time I come home from a vacation I want my room to feel like I still have the comfort of a 5 star hotel.
And my place have the complete amenities of a 5 star resort hotel. It’s paradise… right in the middle of the city. Run by one of the most prestigious and one of the most expensive international hotel chain.
I deserve the best, dude.
Right now, I am in the middle of fixing it. And I am having so much fun doing the interior. I want the minute you walk in, you would say this is so you. And yes, you deserve paradise.
