I keep in mind the companies, brands, establishments which have really good after-sales service. It is very important to me because I’ve had experience wherein a brand’s customer service was close to non-existent when I needed help in a product I bought. I was so disappointed that the next time I needed the same product, I didn’t buy that same brand anymore. I switched to another brand which has good customer service according to feedback from users. After-sales service is very important because it shows how much a company, brand, establishment care for their customers/clients.
Another thing that I look into when I buy something? Money Back Guarantee. A friend of mine told me about the same feature that an online site where musical instruments and anything music-related products can be bought. I am so glad to hear about it I made sure to bookmark the site for this coming holiday shopping that I intend to do on the last week of November.
Remember to check customer/client feedback before buying a product or availing a service. Most especially, the after-sales service and money back guarantee. Both are very important.
Once upon a time, when I was still a greenhorn, I equated success to how high one’s compensation package is and how lofty the title he/she holds in a corporation. Success meant having a license one can boast of and being well-respected in the industry one is a part of. I once dreamt of being that successful, you know. Until a loved one passed away.
I realized then that success is a matter of perspective. I can stay at home and still breathe success every single day. I need not be the CEO or President of a company just to be able to say I am successful in my career. I need not earn a hundred grand or more just to feel like I’ve been a success. I can still earn an average income and still be a success because I am living a happy life. There is a sense of achievement in being able to provide for the family. There is a sense of achievement also in working hard every single day no matter what position you are holding just as long as you are able to deliver what is expected of you.
Breathe success no matter where you are! A stay-at-home mom is still a huge success seeing as to how she takes care of everyone at home and still have time for herself and others. It doesn’t matter if you are a lowly rank and file employee, or an online worker like me. Breathe success and you will be no matter where you are!
I can tell you what I’ve become after years of continually improving my way of life… I’ve become a simple person! And I am saying this in a good way. I’ve learned to live simply. I’ve learned that not everything money can buy can make us happy. There is a reason behind the saying “the best things in life are free”. I also learned that some people are there for you no matter what and those are the best people to have around you when you are on top!
I am happy that I have those kind of people in my life, those who are there for me when I am at my lowest and darkest. A handful, apart from my family, who have been with me throughout the years. I have gone back to living simply, yes, but I won’t hesitate to give one of those friends a Tube Tech CL-1B Compressor this coming Christmas even if it will put a dent to my pocket. I won’t mind spending as much for the others, in fact. They have been valuable to me and, simple life or not, I will go out of my way to show them just how much I appreciate their presence in my life.
I want to be remembered as the girl who is strong, who gets up no matter how hard she was knocked down. The girl who is always there for her family and friends. The girl who tries so hard to become a beacon of hope for the people she loves.
I am not perfect. Nobody is. But what I have is vats of hope that we will all reach our maximum potential one day. I have enough faith that we will be able to live the lives we all want. And I have more than enough in me to rub it on others especially to the people around me. I want to be remembered that way, as the person who became a source of hope and faith to others.
I want to be remembered that way. What about you?

I read that and it reminded me of the coming holiday season. I know that it’s time for me to make my annual list of gifts I will be giving to specific people in the family and from work. It’s not an easy task because it is hard for me to think of what to give some people. I find myself in a bind whenever I think of what to give especially to men other than family. Plus, there’s the budget that I need to think of and stick to when shopping.
I will start my list with family members. They are the ones who are easy to think what to give to. Then, there are the uncles, aunts and cousins. Some relatives with whom I am really close to. Of course, my godchildren are priority, too. And then there are the closest friends, friends from work, and neighbors. There are so many people to whom I should give something to this coming Christmas season. Just to let them know you remember them.
I have to set aside a bigger budget every year, more so than the last one. I don’t really mind as it is my own sweet way of telling everyone on my list that I thought about them and that they are special to me.
When do you begin preparing for Christmas? When do you start listing down gift ideas, names of persons you will be buying gifts for, actual buying of gifts, and wrapping them?
I must admit that no matter how early I begin with my holiday preparation, I seem to end up cramming at the last possible minute to buy gifts for love ones. Last year, I was still shopping on the morning of December 24th for my sisters. Hehehe!
What about you? Do tell.
Never give up!
I’ve been thinking of giving up on a dream I’ve had since I was a teenager. Something to do with the creatives. Because I don’t think I’d have enough time to do it in between working. And then I saw this…
Yes. Thank you for the reminder that I shouldn’t give up just because in my mind time is running out. Or isn’t enough.
I am drafting once again. I am dreaming high. I saw an ad and it made me giddy with excitement. Who knows, right?
Happy weekend everyone!
