Everyone deserves a coffee break

On a busy day, my day would never be complete without a cup of coffee.
But no amount of coffee can wake you up if you also have no motive in waking yourself up.
Just like our goals in life, we can't just sit and wait around for it to happen.
We have the choice to go out there and make it happen.
My goal since I was in college was to get into an advertising company and work on their social media side. Now, its officially been a year since I graduated from college. I can still remember how hard it was to find a job. 

 If some of you are wondering, I had my first job at Philam Life  an Insurance company. I took the job because I wanted to gain experience and besides I wouldn't waste this great opportunity to work at a big insurance company. To be honest, I don't regret working at Philam Life. It wasn't the first job that I expected to get but I learned a lot from this experience. I had great bosses, they were great mentors and I'm indeed thankful to experience my first job with them. 

One of the most important lessons I've learned was to invest early at a young age. We're still young so sometimes (or most of the times lol) we spend our money on things that we don't really need. (I'm actually 100% guilty on this haha!) 

Instead of placing our savings into our bank account. Why not start investing? ;-)

Working at an insurance company definitely opened my eyes when it comes to investing in stocks, not only in stocks but also on different insurance products that would be helpful in for the future. 
Its included on my things to do before this year ends, I'll surely start investing soon.

Despite all the stressful dayswe all truly deserve a coffee break.
Well, I've had mine. I have fully woken up and decided that its time to make my dreams happen.
I recently got a job offer from an ad agency that I really like and decided to finally take it.
I never expected that I'd get the job. Nonetheless, words can't express how happy I was when I got it. The reason why I'm sharing this post is to let you guys know that 
even if getting your dream job isn't easy, 
its going to be worth it in the end.
