Live Without Regrets
I composed this blog post using WordPress app from my HTC Cha Cha which is currently on Smart Always ON package for 30 days.
I have a good net at home and in my workplace, but I ALWAYS NEED to be online. One, itâ€™s part of my job as a Social Media Specialist for TV5. Two, I just need to connect personally to check my emails and social media and blog comments as a blogger. Three – early in 2010, I read an article in Inquirer about me and tagging me as a Social Media Princess. I think I have to live up to that name
Being on the go and jet setting all the time doesnâ€™t mean I can do my work and write blog entries! Thanks to my gadgets powered by SMART! Iâ€™m on prepaid so sometimes I choose my package depending on the work Iâ€™m doing. If Iâ€™m traveling around the Philippines, I donâ€™t rely on my hotel accommodationâ€™s internet so I usually subscribe to SMART UNLISURF. I bring my own so I donâ€™t have any excuse to work, write and connect. If Iâ€™m in the metro and I have internet at home and at work, but I need to check emails, tweets etc when Iâ€™m out to cover events I subscribe to ALWAYS ON. Whatever your needs are connection wise, SMART has a lot of affordable packages to offer for you.
Iâ€™ve learned a lot living an independent life. One of the tricks in life that I try to apply is â€œDonâ€™t Sweat the Small Stuffâ€ Itâ€™s actually from the book by Richard Carlson. Itâ€™s all about simple ways to keep the little things from overtaking your life.
One of the best books Iâ€™ve ever read that really helped me a lot.
I guess to live life without regrets, you just have to LIVE MORE.
Regrets. â€œMany of us crucify ourselves between two thieves â€“ regret for the past and fear of the future.â€ â€“ Fulton Oursler
