Start an Adventure
Selene and I just recently watched The Jungle Book and it made me realize that despite the setbacks and problems we encounter on a daily basis, we must find joy in the simple bare necessities. Sure, our current worries and problems won’t go away but it will lessen the emotional baggage we carry knowing that in other aspects, we are actually truly blessed. And that we should see our own lives as everyday adventures (I mean, that’s not so hard. Manila traffic is a daily misadventure, amirite).
I remember my first working experience out of college a few years back. I gave up a relatively high-paying job then to pursue my “passion” which I thought was marketing / media / advertising – with a salary less than half of what I could have made if I had stayed in the other offer (which was then-boring-to-me finance).
My passion turned out to be a demanding client-oriented job that had me crying through making powerpoints, falling in between the MRT platform and train, staying in the office until 3AM only to come back at 8AM sharp for a client presentation (I wish I knew dry shampoos then).
Now I could look at it as if I were suffering and wasting all my so-called “fresh potential” on such a crappy-paying, time-consuming, not-worth-it job but I took it as a challenge, a positive experience that sharpened and molded me to take on other opportunities that may arise in the future. Instead of punishing myself by thinking such negative or entitled opinions, I trained my mind to think the opposite.
Treat Yo Self
What did I do to stay sane? I rewarded myself. Small things, really. I mean, since I earned very little then (and refused to ask my parents for additional allowance), I could only afford treating myself to “tiny” rewards. A hair treatment once every two months or getting my hair coloured once in 5 months, a new concealer (my only makeup product before!) when needed (buying a new one when I still had concealer left was such a bold and reckless move for me then haha), strictly once a year travel with friends (Laboracay when my body could still stand the heat and absurd crowds) and also – getting myself a postpaid plan.
Signing up for my own postpaid line then – one not tied to either of my parents and one that I actually pay with my own money – was one of those “Hey, I’m here in this stage, I’m independent, I made it” moments in life. Of course, I still lived in my parents house with no electricity or other bills to worry about but it was a step, quite a huge step, to feeling and being independent. I actually had a bill I had to pay on my own.
Globe My Starter Plan
I signed up for the lowest plan then which I think was Php999/month. Currently, they also have a hybrid prepaid slash postpaid plan called the Globe My Starter Plan which you can sign up for for as low as Php300/month. It contains 300 texts to all networks, 300-min call to Globe, 200MB mobile internet, Free Facebook and Viber, 1GB Spotify and a brand new phone to boot! Upgrade to Php500/month, you get the same app features but unlimited calls and texts to Globe (300 texts to other networks).
What I like most about this plan is if you run out of credit stated in your plan, you can revert back to prepaid and reload manually. No bill shocks that will be added on top of your monthly charge so you’re sure you’re only paying that exact amount every month. Also, if you’re a prepaid user hesitant to lose your current, beloved number, you can continue using that number for your postpaid line. Find out the full details here.
So for those who are afraid of the high monthly costs of postpaid – I recommend starting your own postpaid adventure with the Globe MyStarter Plan. Share with me your cellphone prepaid/postpaid stories, I would love to hear them below.
