|9/5/2021 Sunday, 6:45pm Philippine Time|
Hi there. How are you?

Happy weekends 🙂 One of the most beautiful things about weekends is spending it with your family.
Aside from it, it’s the time to relax and refresh yourself from the stressful weekdays. I like it when the weekends is spend really with quality-family time. This pandemic one of the things that we can enjoy doing even at home is watching movies. I love watching movies especially those action-filled and thrilled or suspense movies. On the other hand, I wouldn’t prefer watching horror films, maybe at daytime?

How to handle pre-wedding jitters?

|7/26/2021 Monday, 6:08 pm Philippine Time|

Hi there. I hope all is well with you.
It’s been raining for more than a week now. I am very much saddened with lots of places being flooded and washed-out due to the massive rainfall these days.
Stay safe and healthy always.

Going back to our topic, how to handle pre-wedding jitters? But before that first, let’s define wedding jitters. Is it normal? How can you tell that you are already having these feeling?

Here comes the bride and the groom! Congratulations💓💓

When planning for a wedding, there are lots of things that needed to be prepared. The wedding venue, the sponsors, guests, reception, souvenirs etc. And these can truly consumed so much of our energy both physical and mental. Pre-wedding jitters or also called as “cold feet” is a term characterized by a feeling of uncertainty around moving forward with your wedding. And yes it’s totally normal to feel this way, especially when you are of mixed excited and anxious on the coming of your wedding. I, myself is not excused to feel this, being hands-on on our wedding preparations and still thinking of the year-end work that I have to deliver, it really made me crazy. Pre-wedding jitters are normal, and I think my friends around me are the ones who actually told me that I’m having these pre-wedding jitters thing while my wedding is nearly coming. So here sharing to you my experience and how I deal with them.

The usual signs that I have encountered during these stage of having these pre-wedding jitters are as follows:
1. Overthinking about the things needed to be prepared for the wedding. I can say that planning your wedding ahead is really a factor to worry less and prepare more. Me and my fiancé, had been planning and preparing everything our wedding for 3 months. The first month of our preparation, we can say that we are doing really good. We have our excel template on the side which we update from time to time. That served as our checklist to things we need to buy and we need to have. We have the timeline, and the planning made us felt complacent that we can handle everything within three months. Everything has been manageable and we don’t have to hire for a wedding coordinator to prepare everything for us, we try to do it hands-on. Fast forward, I think 2 weeks left before our wedding, the feeling changes, we both started to feel unprepared, there are things that we don’t expect to happen and we really are not so prepared for those. We started to overthink, what if this will happen, what if the guests are not coming, etc. We are overthinking so much on things that can be simplified instead of being complicated. Suggest if you can plan ahead and settle everything ahead, then it will be better to avoid cramming that will lead to overthinking and stress.

2. You are reactive to your partner and easily to get annoyed on things. This is what I really hate the pre-wedding journey. That you get annoyed to your partner and be reactive especially on things that you don’t agree with. For 8 years++ that me and my fiancé have before settling down, we only have few times that we fight or disagree with each other. But during our pre-wedding preparations, we really have several times that we argue on things and don’t agree with them. My fiancé, who is now my hubby in due fairness cooperates a lot in the planning and I appreciate his patience when I’m in my moody side. He remains calm and understanding, but because he also actively suggest his ideas which sometimes I don’t agree, I get annoyed and react to him badly. I don’t really understand why I’m so reactive those times. But at the end of the day, I thank God for reminding me that the reason we are coming-up with our wedding is because I love my fiancé and the planning stage should not break us but should strengthen us together.

3. You are a cry-baby. This may sound so crazy and funny, but believe me it’s one. I feel like, oh what the heck, why that made me cry. I’m like a child that once I argue and I feel that I don’t get support, I cry. I think it’s because you’re getting very emotional, your wedding is coming and you are still thinking a lot of things, last resort would be to be a cry-baby. I think, there’s nothing wrong in crying. It’s OK to cry. It may even be beneficial to you. If you feel the need to cry, don’t hold back your tears as tears are a normal and it’s one of the healthy ways to express your emotion, thus, you have to let it out. Just please remember not to cry so much on the day before your wedding, you might have your eyebags coming out.

4. You are becoming perfectionist. Of course you won’t like any mess to happen in your wedding, thus, you would want everything to be perfect as possible. It’s a feeling like you are more concerned of what other people will say when it’s not like this, or like that, what if they will not like the food, what if the bridesmaid will not like their dress, the souvenirs should be useful or else the guest won’t take them etc. These are the things that will stress you more, instead of sticking to what has been planned you will always think the other way. Remember that you cannot please everyone, so just be who you are, the wedding should be more of what you and your partner would love how it will look like, and not of how others will think about it. It is supposed to be your day, and not their day.

5. You’re feeling nervous as your big day is coming. I think this is the most usual feeling especially for a woman. For me it’s a dream come true to be married with the man of your dreams but at the same time, it will really make you nervous to finally tie the knot and bid farewell from single life. Thinking that in the married life milestone you have to consider your spouse, you have to adjust from the usual things that you are used to then now it’s going to be of compromise and sacrifice. You are thinking what’s ahead for the both of you, it is going to work for you? Will it be worth it, or will it be for a long-lasting love.

How to handle pre-wedding jitters or cold feet?
Pre-wedding jitters are like uninvited guests at your wedding, these feelings will just come to you and you may can’t believe these are happening to you already. later on you will realize you’re hit by these. So it’s important that you know how to handle once you will feel the same way.

1. Think positively. Because there are things that we’re perfectly planned but won’t go as is, in whatever circumstances, think positively that everything will be ok. You are not supposed to stress yourself. Remember that you are about to celebrate your big day–that is your wedding day. Handle everything with positive thoughts and the good results will follow.

2. Listen to beautiful music and relax. Part of your positive spirit is your engagement to beautiful music and relaxing vibes. Listen to your favorite songs for good vibes and happy thoughts. It is very important to relax your mind, free-up toxicity and negativities.

3. Eat healthy, exercise and take some sleep. Healthy diet, exercise and good sleep are key to help yourself in good shape and camera ready to your wedding day pictorial. Aside from that, it is very important to stay healthy by taking healthy food, regular exercise and better sleep. According to National Sleep Foundation, guidelines advise that healthy adults need between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night. With no doubt, these three are necessary to keep yourself sane and capable to handle the symptoms brought by pre-wedding jitters.

4. Talk with your partner and plan together. Communication is always necessary for both the bride and the groom in planning their wedding. When you are hands-on in coming-up the details of your wedding up to purchasing, contacting guests, and a lot more, then it will be really crazy. It’s going to be your initial test on how your relationship with each other is. Your patience must be tested, your ego, and your love for each other. I also experience this, where most of the time you have to consult and open up the things and details you want to work for your wedding. Communicate and discuss the things with each other as you plan together. The planning stage requires teamwork. Even if you will be hiring a wedding planner, you will still have to discuss with your partner your preferences and choices. It’s going to be exciting, I know you can make it. 🙂

5. Consult and ask for help from others. Sometimes, there are factors that will require the consultation of expert or more experienced people, then if you feel that you need one go on. Remember that it’s ok to ask for help. During our wedding planning, I remember how hesitant my fiancé is to ask for help to his family. Not financial help, but those legwork– picking up the flowers, contacting a supplier, booking a car rental etc. But when we tried opening to them that we still need help on other items, they were very grateful to help us and even sponsored and treated us on some of our expenses. Well, as I told you, don’t stress yourself, there are lots of people there who are open arms in helping.

I hope you have learned from me through these experiences and thoughts that I have. I know it’s now going to be that easy, but I know you can make it better. Congratulations on your coming wedding!

Lovelots and cheers,
Mira Rollenas-Ducusin

How to be a successful working wife?

Hi there. I hope everything is well with you. I’m, back again for goodies and sharings:) How are you?

I have a lot of things in my plate that I need to manage, most of those are work related. I think I got 80% work related and only 20% for my personal interests. But I am still happy. I felt God uses me to manage my time for my work and for my personal life. In fact, no matter how stressful the work is I still able to smile and hope that everything will be well.

Just me 💓💓🤩

In life, there will always be challenges towards success. By the way how do you define success? Because being able to go through our topic today which is how to be a successful working wife, is you have first to know from yourself how do you define success?

Well, we have different definitions of success, it varies from person to person.

Let me share you these definition of success from famous people:

For Richard Branson, the definition of successes isn’t having a private island or xxx billion net worth. Branson wrote that a truly successful person is someone who is happy.
“Too many people measure how successful they are by how much money they make or the people that they associate with. In my opinion, true success should be measured by how happy you are.”

However, for Oprah Winfrey success isn’t being known by just her first name or being one of the world’s wealthiest women, success to her is all about feeling fulfilled:
“…How to be used in the greater service to life. Ask this question, and the answer will be returned and rewarded to you with fulfillment, which is the major definition of success, to me.

For the 44th President of the united States, Barack Obama, success is define simpler: “For Barack Obama, success isn’t about how much money you make. It’s about the difference you make in people’s lives.”

Moreover, for the most prolific inventions in America, Thomas Edison, who invented a lot of patented inventions, and had much dedication and work ethics into his work, his definition of success was somewhat truthful as it is “Success is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration.”

While for Bill Gates who is known to be the wealthiest person in the world when asked about his definition of success, he relates it to success in life by giving back and changing other people’s lives. According to him, “It is also nice to feel like you made a difference — inventing something or raising kids or helping people in need.”.”

If you will be asked how do you define success, what will your answer be? With the 5 definitions above, I am moved with defining success based on the happiness that a thing or a milestone gave me, on the other hand I also believe with Thomas Edison that success is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration, but in my case I am redefining the percentages, mine is going to be 80% perspiration and 20% inspiration. I think in my case, in all the things that I do there are reasons behind it and so with other people as well.

What keeps me going is my family, I work for my family and for the good future of my family. The main reason is family. They are my inspiration, on the topmost of it is God who is the one who provides and makes all things possible and beautiful. Sometimes when I encounter problems, toxic people and tough challenges in life, and I may give up, I always go back to the reason why I am starting it for the first time?

This is me at work station at my stressful but hopeful days. I got pimples but I still manage to work 🙂 💕

It is really hard to manage everything together, as an adage says “You cannot serve two masters at the same time”. It’s like managing a household and working, or for the mothers out there taking care of the children while working away from home. It’s challenging! Sometimes you really need to give up something for something better. Take note, SOMETHING BETTER!!! That something better should be worthy of your time, attention and your love. Because success in any thing that you do is “loving what you do”.

While writing this, I am being reminded of the past work experiences that I gave-up. My colleagues in the previous companies that I worked with are still working great, they eventually were promoted and enjoy their work. Sometimes, I asked myself and reflect what if I stayed until now, how would it be? But in the end, I realized that the path that I have now is what I have chosen years ago, and I know that by that time I have my reasons why I choose this.

This is me after work, with my hubby and our fur baby-Lucca😽😽

And if you will asked me, am I successful? Well, in my humble opinion, being able to surpass everyday of my life is already a success, and so do you. You are successful in your own way, because it’s you who define your own success!!!
The answer on how to be a successful working wife for me is just living the moment, may you be a working wife, a house wife, a single mom or anyone, YOU ARE YOU!!!. Live the moment, enjoy what do you and always say a prayer because our God above is the only one Who will never judge us successful or still trying hard!

Love lots and cheering for you,
Mrs. Mira Rollenas-Ducusin

How to keep quality time with your husband to never gets boring?

Hi there, how are you? It’s been a while since the last time I shared my journey of my marriage life here in my page. I have my me time and space and choose a little time away from gadgets the last month. But everything is well with me and my husband. I have made so much realizations in this journey, indeed, a really worth to take one!

Anyways, in this topic I will be sharing to you the things that you can enjoy doing together with your spouse, the same way as these work with me and my husband. Here are my top 10 in the list with no particular order:

Movie dates at home with my hubby while watching “Trese”.
  1. Movie dates. This one is the best weekend activity that we love both of my husband. I grew up with lack of resources to watch and afford good movies in the cinema. Way back then, my boyfriend who is now my husband would tease me saying that I missed half my life of not be able to watch good movies. But I would always argue with him and would tell him, “NO” I have enjoyed so much of my province life. I have climbed coconut trees and enjoy my time in the rice fields. Hahaha, now that I am a wife, I love weekends at home with husband and we truly have time to watch movies together to cope-up those years that I missed half of my life, kidding 😊 Yeah, I really find it great and informative to be able to watch good movies, learn from the story and relate from them as well. I am so much thankful to the family of my husband who shared their Netflix account to us, by this we can maximize the available and accessible movies in Netflix and watch them together. By now, you will surely laugh at me if I will tell you that I am still finishing the series of Twilight—we are still on its sequel “The Breaking Dawn”. Though my husband has already finished the series, he still loves going through it for the nth time with me.
  2. Playing games. What’s your favorite games? Do you prefer board games, or mobile games? My husband is a lover of online mobile games. As of writing he loves playing Mobile Legends, while in my side I really hate it when he has to cancel my call and continue the game so not to be reported and banned as player. Yes, I have encountered being cancelled with my call because he can’t play and talk at the same time. But every after his game he will call back and explain for the nth time that he has to do it during his game. After that we made an agreement that if my calls are really urgent, I have to text first, urgent or a cue that it needs an immediate response and he will be willing to leave his game, but for those that “can wait” messages or calls we can discuss them after the game. What an attention seeker type of game huh? Hehehe, on the other side, I love board games, I can spend time on playing scrabble, snake and ladder is also fun too. I love it when my husband plays together with me, especially those games that we can learn and improve our vocabularies or judgement, those are ok with me.
  3. Cooking. This is one of the things that I am a work in process with, I am not really a good chef or cook. I have only limited lists of good dishes that I know how to cook. Most of them I have to look at the recipe from time to time. But for me, I have improved a lot of my cooking skills now that I am married. Before, my mother prepares our food, from our breakfast to our lunch to our work, she prepared them. Now that I got married, I have to wake-up earlier and prepare our food from breakfast to our “baon” for work. One of the dish that I am confident cooking is pork adobo, it is also easy to prepare and the taste is classy. Well, for me and my husband, we love pork adobo—the Filipino style. 😊 Cooking is also one of the great way to bond with your spouse, as for me and my hubby, I am the one who is a better cook, there’s no choice because my hubby is not so fond of cooking. But I still engaged him in handling simple cooking tasks while I am preparing the whole thing. Like, he can help me slicing or peeling the veggies, help me measuring the ingredients or even the one who will do the taste test. 😊
  4. Food dates. Of course everything is best when done over food who would not love eating while discussing things together. When you watch movies, you would also love munching chips, dipping nachos to your favorite sauce. Food dates does not only mean eating outside, it could be a candle light dinner at home. After you do the cooking, you will add a lighting a scented candle and pick a stalk of rose in your garden to make it more romantic. How I wish we got a roof deck where we can have food dates at the same time star gazing on a romantic dinner dat “roof deck” version. On the other hand, for someone outgoing a dinner outside would also be best–eating in your favorite restaurant with the best food would also be nice.
  5. Karaoke & Dance. Who wouldn’t like to express yourself in singing or in dance the feelings that you like to express when you’re out of words. Between singing and dancing I would love to sing along with good music. However, if the music is undeniably lively and inviting for a dance why not– me and my husband love wiggle wiggle, red red wine and a message to you Rudy. These songs make us dance with the beat though our steps are just out of nowhere and we can only dance by ourselves only. This red red wine is a mixture of romance and upbeat music. We used to play it every weekends, and not missing to do a Cha-cha with a dramatic turn every time we play it at home. Nowadays, if you like love to do the karaoke, you can enjoy doing it over Youtube because the lyrics are always available as long as you have your internet connection on.
  6. Window shopping. This is truly one of the most savvy things to do and enjoy together. Why savvy? Of course this is literally just pleasing your eyes over the nice products and items in the mall but without the intention of buying when. Hahahaha, I laugh out loud while writing to this one as this is what we do most of the times with my hubby. As I told you before, we do our groceries once a month, so after our grocery day and we have extra time to go to the mall, we would but that time for sure would be spent to window shopping. Me and my hubby loves going through housewares section. In the Philippines, one of the biggest shopping center is SM, this is own by the Sy Family. As most of the SM Stores and so gigantic and with huge varieties of choices to choose from for almost all of your needs, you will surely be pleased to window-shop for an hour or more. I can’t lose my taste to go around the houseware section, look over to the plates, beautiful decorative items, colorful bedsheets, and many many more. I really happy that my hubby supports me with this window shopping thing. My hubby would definitely love to look at some sporty shops and everyday carry items, mountaineering gears, moto gears etc. What is the benefit of window shopping? For us this inspire us and give us drive to do our work well. No work, no money to afford those things that we wish to buy at some future time. 🙂
  7. Travelling. One of the best things that I also love is travelling. Travelling would not only mean a travel to an out of town destinations. I have limited travels outside town together with my husband. When we are still boyfriend and girlfriend, we don’t have a lot of chance to travel by ourselves because we are not permitted by my mother. Even I am 28 years old that time, a no is still a no. But with trusted and good friends we are allowed to travel as long as in a group and usually should not be an overnight travel. My family is really protective, maybe because I am the youngest in the family. Also one of the reasons why we have limited travels is that we don’t have our own service/car. We have to commute from one terminal to the other, and by the time my hubby got his motorcycle the pandemic hits so bad that travel restrictions are imposed in most of the places. Most of my friends are taking travelling while they are still young, as the saying goes by “You only lived once (YOLO)” so if possible travel as you can and enjoy every places you go with your loved ones.
  8. Housekeeping. I think this is a daily activity that makes the marriage life not boring. The household chores never run out. Hahahha 🙂 In the morning, from cooking, washing the dishes, watering your plants, cleaning, doing the laundry, keeping everything in order inside your home is an everyday task. This may seem to be ordinary but you can still enjoy it when done with your husband or your family member. Housekeeping is something I look forward every weekend because it’s the only time that I can attend to these things with more time than the weekdays. Weekdays has to be made quick as we need to report to our onsite work. For me, what I like it more because my husband and I help with each other in doing and keeping everything in order at home.
  9. Taking care of pets. For me taking care a pet is our outlet of stress relief. After a month of being married, me and my hubby decided to get a cat. We rehomed a very beautiful and active British short hair kitten. We named it Lucca. That time Lucca was still 3 months, now as of writing she is already 7 months old. How time flies so fast! We are very much happy for having Lucca with us at home. She is like a part of our family. After work, I look forward to meeting my hubby and of course our furbaby. This furbaby is also very sweet that one can really be distressed with. It doesn’t matter what pet would you be taking care, but I think it’s also nice if both of you will love that pet.
  10. Gardening. The pandemic brings a lot of families together, aside from it there are lots of people who became plant lover or what we call here in the Philippines as “plantita or plantito”. Even myself and my mother, we become more of a plant enthusiast. As of now we are growing different plants at home, they are grow in a pots. Lately also, I am starting to grow some exotic plants at home. I have started planting drosera which I got the seeds from my brother in-law. Both me and my husband are very excited for more exotic plants coming soon.

Ginataang Manok Halang-halang Recipe

Hi there!

Mga wifeys, for today I will be sharing a cooking recipe that you can prepare for your family. This is a filipino dish that is very simple to prepare, healthy and is delicious.

I termed it as Ginataang Manok Halang-Halang Recipe because its main ingredient is coconut milk or “gata” in Filipino, while the word halang-halang is a Bisayan word for “maanghang” in Filipino or spicy in English.

Ginataang Manok (Chicken with Coconut Milk Recipe)

So without further ado, here’s the recipe, I hope you will like it 🙂

How to Write a Poem for your Spouse?

I love to receive poems from my husband. At the same time when I’m in the mood I would love writing poems for my loved ones. I have written few poems way back then, but for this blog I would love to share to you some of the beautiful poems that my husband has written for me.

These poems always make me smile every time I go over them, and would love to have them in my page to always be reminded of them.

The first poem that he had written and given to me is entitled “A Rose for A Special Girl”, and here it is:

Where’s the rose? I asked him, then he handed me a beautiful rose. ❤ ❤ ❤

A Rose for a Special Girl
By: Richard Pham Ducusin

Tender loving care for you, but away from harm
Happiness in you with a blast of a confetti
All of this I pray for a person so clever
Nice thing should be in your future to God I plea
Know that I’m like a picture of black, gray and deaf

You give me the sense, that my colors are inside.
Obtain this sonnet as a sign that I am near
Unlike the other men, I can be your hero

Sounds of terror, pain and despair will quickly heal
Out on the wrong unstable path for you I deal

My way of saying thanks, because your nice and wise
Utter my name and without a doubt I come soon
Cheering you was my very brilliant idea
Having care to wonderful and beautiful lass.

———- THE END————-

When I asked my husband “why do you come-up with this poem?” He said, I want to say thank you so much, plus my name on the right side of each ending letter, can you find it? Hahahahaha, do you notice that the start of every line when combined together will form a message of Thank you so much. On the other hand, the ending letters of each line when combined together spelled my name. ❤ Further, I asked him, where’s the rose? the title of the poem is “A Rose for a Special Girl”, and he said while handling me a rose, here’s the rose. That made my day, the poem was a bit of twist, and fun.

So going back with my heading question, how to write a poem for your spouse, or to someone you want like to make a poem? This could be a tip for you, you can come-up with the message and elaborate your thoughts to every line.

My husband has been a sweet lover and really tried his best to impress me since the day he courted me. By the way this poem is I think written between our College years 2011 I think. 😀 That time we are still knowing each other more. God is so good that He has given me a husband like him 🙂

Sending love and warm hugs,
Mrs. Ducusin

This is the actual poem that he had given to me, he laminated it in one of the computer shops near our school. 🙂 This is the front page.
This is inspired by the lyrics of one of his favorite songs Sunday Driving By Rico Blanco, “I want you to see, the world that I see. Hear, the beatin’ of my heart. Feel, the flame that grips me.

This one’s the back page of the laminated poem 🙂

How to Balance Work and Wife Duties?

I know its a struggle to balance work and life duties being a wife especially if you have critical responsibilities in your workplace. I like to be hands-on with my responsibilities on being a wife. I like to give the best that I can to be the best wife to my husband. But most of the time, I also have hard time on balancing the responsibilities that I have in my work.

I am an Accountant in the a company that I am employed to. I love dealing numbers, balancing figures, but at the same time I am pressured to constantly deliver the reports on a timely and error-free manner. It has been a big responsibility handling an Accounting Department. It’s so hard to be that hands-on to your family when your 8-hour workday consumes so much of your energy physically and mentally. Accounting jobs truly need your analysis which eat-up your mental energy while being at work. At every transaction, you need to come-up with sound judgment on a day-to-day operations.

I am with my other 2 colleagues doing some Accounting tasks, but my tasks are way much heavier than theirs. Usually after an 8-hour shift, I still have to work extra time to finish everything, though even working extra I am still struggling to finish my tasks 😦 . But so much for this introduction, though I have been really having hard time I still try my best to balance work and life being the best wife I can be.

I am very thankful that my husband and I are working in the same city that he can fetch me after my work and we’ll head home together. The usual work schedule in the Philippines is between 8am to 5pm, 8:30 am to 5:30 am, or 9 am to 6 pm. It varies, there are also some companies on a mid shift schedule, usually those working for international clients. So these are the tips that I can give you to balance your time being a working wife and a hands-on wife. 🙂

  1. Manage your time wisely. Time is gold as an old adage said, it’s a reminder for all of us to use our time productively and efficiently. I know I myself has to improve a lot when it comes to managing my time well. Being at work at 8 am, you will be shocked that it’s already 11 am coming lunch break and your still half way done. Sometimes, I am overwhelmed with the task to do first because of the many tasks around. I realized that managing time comes hand in hand with prioritizing which task has to be done first. I realized that, the first thing to do is to identify the tasks that you have for a day, then organize which of the tasks should be prioritized. Identify which task is urgent and is important, or urgent but is not important, or not urgent but important or else not urgent and not important. This way you will be guided on which tasks should be needed to be done first. How to handle these tasks?
    1. Urgent and Important. These tasks should come first in your priorities, these are those with deadlines, or those tasks which are connected to the next tasks. Urgent and important tasks should be dealt with urgency towards its completion. Some of the examples could be a month-end report which your boss requires you to submit a week after month-end, or it can be a regulatory report that is set to be submitted every 10th of the month and failure to submit would mean paying penalties.
    2. Urgent but is not important. There are also tasked that you may classify as urgent however not important. Examples of which is attending a certain meeting. In a workplace, there are also fun events/meetings that are randomly held. You can be invited to join a Zumba session with your colleagues. It’s up to you if that is something you will categorized as important. That could be urgent as it is only held once a year but your absence won’t hinder the activity to push through. As mentioned, the level of category varies from person-to-person.
    3. Not urgent but important. There are things that you will also classify as not urgent but are important ones. One of which could be attending to your car’s general maintenance check. This is an important maintenance activity for your car but can be scheduled during weekends so not to compromise your work schedule. Important things should not be neglected as well.
    4. Not urgent and not important. This classification is crazy, I wonder why a task is being made to be classified as not urgent and not important. Can you think of something not urgent and is not important tasks? For me, based on personal experience I can tell, but I have only classified those as not urgent and not important only when I realized that it was a wasted effort. What’s your thoughts on this?
  2. Do your best when at work. As a working wife, on weekdays I spend longer hours at work than being home, especially because my work requires me to report in the company’s office. The most important tip to share would be to always do your best when at work. Know the reason why you have to work, typical reason would be our work is the source of our bread and butter, no work, there’s no pay, and no pay means no money, no money means no food for the family. No matter how hard your work is remember that because of your work you’re able to provide for your family and able to support the needs of your loved ones. If you have an 8 to 5 job, do well with the given time to finish your work so that at the end of the workday, you will go home productive and have done your best towards your work. Work by example, put your best forward into your work, remember it is your bread and butter.
  3. Family time is Family time. I always remind myself that if my work will compromise so much of my time that I have to choose between work and my family, I will always choose family. The topmost priority for me is my family, and I worked for a living because of my family. So as much as I can, I want my life after work to be spent for my family. I don’t want to receive calls and text, or being oblige to answer an email after working hours. If we will analyze, we only have 24 hours a day, 12 hours or more is spent in preparation to work, work proper (in an 8 hour work-shift setting), and travelling back & forth, this is only if you have closer distance from your work to your residence, but could be longer if you’re far from your office. Which means that our regular office setting consumes half of our day, the remaining 12 hours is spent in doing household chores and family time (5 hours) and the remaining 7 hours for sleep. How ideal, but because we have a lot of distractions nowadays, we have social media, cellphones, netflix etc. we tend to mismanaged our time. Instead of spending family time with family members we spend our time on not important things which are not urgent, at the end of the day we will realize why have we wasted our time. The worst case, the next day we are doing the cycle of improper time management again and again. If you want to balance your work and your time being a wife, a mother and a family man change your habits, family time matters. After a tiring work day, connect with your family members, know how their days went and communicate with them.
  4. Babe-time with your spouse is a must. Sometimes, it’s challenging to sneak a date with your spouse especially if you have kids to take care. But babe time with your spouse does not only means going out, you can set-up a candle light dinner at home, or watch a good movie together. Spend time with each other talking how the day went, open-up your feelings and thoughts to your spouse. I can’t guarantee you that everyday would be a smooth sailing one because for sure along the way, there will be challenges in your marriage but remember that you have each other. At the end of a long tiring day, the best babetime for me is when we pray together before we go to sleep, this way we will renew each other in prayer that the next day we will both be guided by God in everything that we will do.
  5. Plan the next day ahead. For me a good way to prepare for the day is through planning. It works for me in managing our weekend together especially during pay day. Why pay day? hahaha this is crazy but pay day because this is the time that we usually do and buy our groceries, in a month we only buy our groceries for the whole month once. That’s why pay day excites me, my way of planning is to come-up with a list of groceries to buy, of course we need a list because we are on a tight budgeting. Usually our grocery time is scheduled the closest Saturday after pay-day 🙂 we want to spend our weekends well, so aside from grocery time we also make sure to have quality time together so it’s important to plan within the expected time tables.
This is a picture of me and my hubby, once in a while we go for some babetime dates. ❤ ❤ Because of the pandemic, we have to wear facemasks and face shields when outside.
This is us having babetime together over food. Yumyum ❤

Managing work life balance is really a struggle for everyone. As a wife, I wish everyone especially those working wife like me to be able to find happiness and work life balance as well. At first, it will require adjustments, as even myself is still consistently adjusting but soon hopingly everyone will find its balance.

Sending virtual hugs and love to all of you,

Mrs. Mira Ducusin ❤

How to please your husband when he is angry?

I love my husband so much, the same way as he loves me. He is my source of strength and also my weakness. Disagreements between couples are normal, we misunderstood each other, disagree, quarrel and later on make peace. When he is angry, I think I become a bit paranoid, at this stage, I’m still in the process of handling lover’s quarrel professionally, haha:) Soon I will list down the usual reasons that our husband gets angry. But to tell you, my husband is not a stubborn one, he is very thoughtful, loving and a caring husband. But when his angry side strikes on, I am at my panic mode. So here I am listing down my ways to please my husband, maybe these can also help you to tame your angry hubby. Enjoy reading 🙂

  1. Treat him with calmness and politeness. Boys don’t like so much words, they want peace most of the times. They don’t like loud discussions or even confrontation. So in times of his anger, stay calm as much as you can and treat him politely. Do not make confrontations yet at this time or else the fire may ignite even more. In my case as I’ve said I am a bit paranoid person especially when we have minor disagreements, I usually distance for a while and then assess when everything seems better, that’s the time I talk gently to my husband.
  2. Discuss your concerns privately. The degree of anger will vary on a case to case basis. It is ideal that the the cause of the anger be known and be resolved immediately. Boys don’t like confrontation, they like to be given a long time of silence when they are angry then later on once they’re good, they will talk to you like nothing happens. But as I said, the degree of anger varies. When you both acknowledged the cause of the anger, assess who made the mistake and learn to ask for forgiveness. My husband want a space for himself to reflect and come-up with sound judgment during a fight, but he also appreciate to sit down and settle our concerns privately. Avoid postings rants on social media, if you have problem with your spouse try to resolve the problem together. Sometimes a discussion doesn’t need to be long and loud, it can be done in a gentle way with respect and love. Most of the times, I start asking how can I make you feel better, then we will go on with the concerns that made him angry.
  3. Cook his favorite dish. This tip is connected to the above, sometimes a discussion is better over food. So, try to cook his favorite dish and serve it to him. First, know his favorite food so that you can please him with the right food to serve. As a saying goes, “A way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”. My husband is a lover of pasta and coffee, so after dealing and winning with an argument (of course I should win, not always but most of the time) kidding, I try to win his heart again. Serving him delicious and his favorite food will ease his mood and make him feel better. I am not really a good cook, I am a work in process chef, but I always try to make effort when my husband is angry, I like to make moves “suyo” first and that magical smile from his face will lighten-up again our mood.
  4. Be sweeter and expressive. Not all people are expressive, showy and sweet to their spouse. I think the most important thing here in the first place is to know your husband’s love language. If his love language is receiving gifts, try to please him by giving little gifts that you know will make him feel better. If his love language is receiving an act of service, try to offer him a massage. If his love language is time, try to invite him over a movie night or dates, or play with him together over Mobile Legends or Clash of Clans (I don’t know if this works with your hubby, but at least you’ve tried). If his love language is touch, you should know what to do to make him feel much better 🙂 hahaha.
  5. Reconcile and make peace with each other. This is in relation to tip number 2. After a discussion, reconcile and fill the gaps between you and your spouse. If the cause of the anger is heavy and significant, understand that making peace with each other may take time. You have to ask for forgiveness and be sincere with your actions to correct your wrongdoings. As a saying goes like this, forgive and forget, but remember it is not easy to forgive and just forget when the cause is significant, sometimes time just heal everything, but it doesn’t work for everyone. I still believe in trying to do your best to reconcile with your husband, make peace with him and be sincere with your apology.

My journey to being a wife is amazing, me and my husband have arguments from time to time, these are inevitable but we make efforts to solve them. Because if the two of you love each other, no challenge can move you, after a fight you will end up laughing at each other on that stupid nonsense thing. At the end of the day remember that your husband is your other half, he is your ally and your partner in crime. Whatever it is that you are going through right now, you are not alone, this too shall pass.

Wishing and praying for a strong, binded with love and unity to you and your spouse!

P.S. How about you how do you handle your hubby when he is angry? I wish I have given you good reads for you to also reflect over in handling such circumstances. If you have any topics that you want me to right and share with, please let me know. I am enjoying writing and sharing my random thoughts here in my page. Let’s keep in touch, lovelots!


Date and babe time with my hubby:))

Love and blessings,

Mrs. Mira Ducusin

10 Tips on How to Adjust to Married life

Hi there, I wish you all the best in your marriage life. I hope it was not so hard for you to adjust in this journey to becoming a wife, welcome to the club! As previously shared to you in my previous blogs, me and my husband just got married this January 2021, and it was great. However, the transition and adjustment period were not easy than I’ve imagined. Way before, I always dream of being a better wife that I could. I’ve listed some of the best habits that I thought I could do to easily adopt and be a better wife, a better version of me.

A week after our wedding, I have realized that there’s a big change in my behavior, my routines and my emotions. And these all were unplanned, I never thought this could be this spontaneous. Maybe because I am an emotional person especially to the people whom I loved the most. I’m sharing some of my tips on this adjustment phase. May these help you even just in a little way, lovelots!

  1. Open-up your feelings to your spouse. One of the most important, aspect in a marriage life is communication. It is a process of sending and receiving information, thus, a two-way process. As an old adage goes, a problem shared is a problem solved. For me, being married gives someone a sense of feeling that you will not be alone anymore as long as you got your other half’s back. So, if you are having hard time on something bring-up the concern no matter how insignificant it is. I remember when I feel so tired from work and I still have to prepare for our dinner. I transformed my frustrations into unpleasant behaviors and mood swings, I don’t like to say it verbally to my husband that I like him to help me with dinner. I keep on nagging and saying that I’m so tired. And that night, we end-up into arguments (I don’t like going back into those times). Then my husband politely asked me “what’s wrong, and asked me how can I help you? Those times made me realized that an open communication is really important to every relationship. Why is it that we find it hard to communicate our feelings? I myself can say that I am afraid of communicating because the things that I will tell my husband may cause him mad or may hurt him, that’s why I rather have them by myself. But this thinking won’t worked, if you want a relief in what you are feeling, open-up your feelings to your spouse. Discuss the things that you want to improve and try working them out together. After that night of heart-to-heart talks, my husband regularly helps me in the household chores. He washes the dishes after our meals, do the laundry, feed our adorable kitten and more other chores. Remember that communication is a two-way process, opening-up your feelings does not only mean that you alone will open-up, encourage your spouse to do the same, and learn to also listen on his/her sentiments.

2. Humble yourself, forgive and forget. Sometimes it’s hard to admit the fact that it is us who caused the fire-up. It’s hard to humble down when your ego is more important than your peace of mind. Let go of your ego and humble yourself. Sometimes a simple “what can I do to make you feel better?” makes a relief. There was a time that I feel that my husband owes me an apology because of a nonsense stuff. I tried to ignore him and to disregard him for a little while, but I realized that I can’t. I can’t let my ego overrule me knowing that our relationship as husband and wife is more important than anything else. In this journey, know that your husband is your ally, and whatever it is that made you angry at, think about it? Is it worth the stress? If not, humble yourself and ask for forgiveness, then forget that nonsensical thing.

Sometimes, forgiving is not an easy thing to do, this requires time and it’s a process. It also varies on the weight of the concern you are taking. As married couple, the two of you is expected to take care of your marriage and take care of each other, that would include avoiding on doing things that will hurt each other. Once you are forgiven, be sincere with it and avoid doing these things again and again, by that how can you be also worth of the forgiveness? As I’ve said humble yourself, being humble is to submit your mistakes and reflect from those, the correction of those mistakes must follow.

3. Always go back to the core of your marriage-your love for each other. This is always my favorite reminder, why you’ve married your spouse in the first place? This is the core of any relationship—your WHYs? Marriage is a sacred sacrament, and everyone should take care of one’s marriage. One of the messages of our wedding guests is that when we have disagreements and challenges, always go back to the reason why we come-up this far. I know all of us are not perfect, for sure as we journey together, we will have more fights together, more disagreements to solve and more nags to say, but before coming-up to a more painful argument, go back to the core of your relationship. What made you in love with your husband?

When I and my husband exchanged wedding gifts to each other, he gave me a camera, I asked him why he came-up with that gift and he told me that he wants us to be reminded on the beautiful memories that we will capture together so that when we get old and our memories can’t hold any longer or if we have any misunderstandings, we can go back to our memories again and again. This way, we will be reminded of our love to each other which is more important than any trial, ego or challenges that we will be taking.

4. Pray for each other. This is the most important tip that anyone should keep. There is a saying that says “A family that prays together, stays forever”, yes because prayer is the most important weapon in everything. Believe that whatever it is that you are going right now, from the adjustment phase in your marriage life to a happy and a better version of you in your marriage life, there should be God being the center of your marriage. It is very important to pray for each other, and to lift up to God everything. Be each other’s prayer warrior especially in this crucial stage of adjustment phase.

Sharing this bible verse for when you pray:

2 He said to them, “When you pray, say: “Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. 3 Give us each day our daily bread. 4 Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.” (Luke 11:2-4)

5. Never give up on your marriage and enjoy the journey together. Marriage life is a lifelong journey, as what you have vowed in the covenant, in sickness and in health ’til death do you part. In this lifelong journey, keep that love burning and enjoy the company with each other. God does not promise us that it will be easy, but for sure it will be worth it! I know, as we journey this together, we will have these challenging times, we just have to keep going and enjoy the journey.

I wish everyone will have a blessed and happy marriage life ahead! Let’s pray for each other and cheer up each other! This is one of the most beautiful verse that reminds us how love conquers above all.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 New International Version

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

This is one of my favorite portrait with my husband ❤ ❤ ❤
I also love this picture of us ❤

Every relationship is beautiful, but ours is my favorite.

Wishing so much love and blessings into your marriage life,

Mrs. Mira Ducusin ❤
