The world just celebrated International Women’s Day last March 8 and the days leading to that… well, ramdam ko lang talaga pagiging babae ko, lol! The last week has been such a roller coaster of a ride for me that I think I need a break… a long one if possible! Unknowingly, I was about to have my period (mine is irregular so unless I take contraceptive pills which I stopped more than a year ago, I will never really know when my next period will come, hence, my emotions going haywire whenever it’s about to happen) so you can just imagine how every little thing ticked me off and every little thing blowing out of proportion from March 1-8, in my personal life at least. In terms of work, it amazes me how I can still function and do my best in serving my clients. Kudos, really, to women out there! Being a woman, a 41-year-old mother to a 3-year-old toddler at that, who also works full-time and provides for her family, is one tough job to beat! (Yes, I am patting my back and yours as well. It’s our month after all!)
Anyway, now that I have my period, I can relax, sort of, and just focus on what needs to be done and there are a lot. Aside from work and a ton of laundry (lol!), I want to update my blog and share with you an event I attended last February 27 here in Cagayan de Oro City, which, in my own small way, has been how I welcomed the upcoming International Women’s Month at that time. And yes, I watched Captain Marvel recently too. But that’s another story.
This year is truly becoming a year of firsts for me. I normally don’t go to events because of lack of time and energy. But in the pursuit of personal development, I want to start going out of my comfort zone again. Hence, my decision to attend a Connected Women Global Meetup.
Suffice it to say that I learned a lot. And in case you are a social marketer, or a digital nomad, or a digital entrepreneur like me, or are interested in becoming one, then read on. I will list down below the things I learned from this experience where you might learn something new too: Continue reading
