I recently attended a corporate event in line with celebrating the International Women's Day. I am thankful to be a part of the global company that champions diversity and inclusion, and within this umbrella - the commitment to develop women leaders to be able to perform at their peak.
Every year, the P&G Philippines' Women Network team organize a symposium for women managers from its three sites. The 2017 event theme was #NoLimits and had external and internal speakers share their story about taking risks, chasing one's passion outside of work and being their best.
I must say, THE highlight of my day was the opportunity to meet one of the women I admire up close and personal. I was a newly-wed and newly-pregnant young wife and mom when I started following Daphne Osena in her 15-minutes or so segment called "Video Postcards," then followed by F and much later, Guide to Urban Living and Proudly Filipina. I am also a follower of her earlier blog called "Live Journal" until the blog evolved to her self-titled blog "Daphne."
Upon finding myself a follower of her live journal, the inspiration took over that led me to creating this blog as well and ultimately, finding that voice. You will find a link to her blog in this humble cyber-corner of mine.
|Up close and personal with the inspiration behind how I started my own blog|
and found my voice.
|Daphne spoke about how she evolved and reinvented herself through the years, |
finding her passion and living life in her own terms.
|Fan girl moment.|
Daphne embodies chic and classiness.
How she maintain her lean form is too die for!

|I came ready to be inspired.|
Indeed, I truly was!
The PH women's symposium gave me new ideas which I will endeavor to write about in this blog in the coming days. Maybe months.
I came to the event ready to be inspired by the universe and it did not disappoint! Last quarter, I made a very important decision and I feel good about it after having sought Divine Wisdom to guide my actions. There is a sense of liberty in being able to move on, move forward and embrace what life has to offer next. I apologize if this sounded vague for now. One day, I'll get to write about it too in this blog.
