sleeping well?

If it’s not obvious, I am the worst worrywart. :hide: For the past 7 years (since I got married and had kids), I didn’t sleep well. I would often wake up at 3AM just because. Maybe because I got used to feeding babies every 2 to 4 hours. Or maybe because I am evil. LOL! Just kidding. Or seriously because I have worries. Truth be told, I am not the type who says “Come what may” without doing anything. I want to get things done. I like getting things done. Do you get me? Hihi. I have so many what–ifs going inside my head, believe me. It has probably tripled when I had children. You can’t blame me (please just don’t if you don’t want to get some spanking. Lol! Jk)

So when I decided to start this journey to financial independence, can you imagine how much my fears have heightened? :hide: Honestly, I had the worst praning–mode ever. :( Based on readings, it is normal to feel that way. That’s because you’re more aware about where you and your family are standing in terms of finances (and in our case, we’re way, way down there) and thus consequently, you’re more aware about the things that could happen if ever the income you’ve been using to support the family will stop coming! So I had to think and do something fast (that’s what usually what praning people are good at. Haha!). I should not wait any longer to get protection for me(insurance) and my income(savings). Yes, I may have some protection and savings benefit from my present company, but that’s short–term. You can’t bring it with you if ever it’s time to move on. Yes, looking way forward is part of the process in this financial independence journey. Is it good or good? Obviously, I’m not giving you any choice. It is good. In fact, they say you already have 80% chance you’d succeed in financial independence just because you are aware.

Anyhow, you know what I did? I immediately got myself a protection+savings/investment plan through Philam Life’s Family Secure. What I like about this product is the very strong protection coverage it offers and since it’s a variable unit–linked (VUL) product, it’s a good vehicle to save and invest. Getting this plan is really all about me hitting two birds with one stone: getting protected and saving/investing. Aren’t these two of my financial goals for this year? :)

If you like to know more about Philam Life’s Family Secure product and other products, please leave me a comment with your email address. I’d be more than glad to point you to the right person to talk about these products in detail.

So if you ask me, how I'm sleeping now? I'd have to say way, way better than before. Thank you. :)

So how about you? Have you been sleeping well? :)
