It’s About Time

Hi all!

Long time no blog, haha! I’ll tell you why I’ve been inactive recently after this mandatory blog post header photo lol.

(my selfie is totally unrelated but I don’t have any recent pic lol)

For the past few weeks, I’ve been preparing. I’ve mentioned before about my dream about going full-time as a content creator (with being an entrepreneur as a sideline hehe). Let me quote myself back then, hahaha

During sometime last year, I woke up one day and I finally realized what I really wanna do for the rest of my life. I’m the type of person who is so active and tries out everything.. so this ~enlightenment~ is really different for me. Definitely a eureka moment for me.

Ever since I discovered how fun it is to tweak html codes & create webpages more than a decade ago… indeed, I have always created web content almost all of my life. This skill that I honed with the help of google, some books, workshops, youtube videos and such, really helped me greatly to jumpstart many projects online. Do not get me wrong though, I do love my work at JLM Store as the overall manager + founder / creative director for Japan Lover Me.. but besides being part of this amazing & ambitious company which I juggle with my entrepreneurial ventures, I think that a huge part of my calling in life is really to come up with fresh creative content in the form of blog entries, videos, and such. When I think about it, I really do have the best time whenever I do and combine all the puzzle pieces (ideas) inside my brain. Though it is tough for me to go all-out and full force for Rainbowholic (meaning, I need to support myself 1000% by not having to rely on a day job).. I am really motivated to make this happen. Thanks to all of my readers’ encouragement throughout these years because without that, I don’t think I would be able to sustain this platform for long. Of course, I won’t leave JLM Store / Japan Lover Me completely. I will still be evidently there as it is my big baby with my team.. but I aim to really concentrate a huge chunk of my time to build the empire I have in my mind. Phew ~ gambatte, self!

I feel like I’m always evolving and I can’t stay too long in one phase. This is probably because I always want to improve and level up myself no matter what. When you’re getting older, I guess that the only way to stay ~youthful~ is to be hungry for knowledge. And I wanna be youthful even if I age every year, lololol ~

It will take many baby & big steps to really reach what I envision this personal blog to become and I hope that you will still be there when it happens! :”)

Finally, I have the courage and the “supportive” go signal to pursue this passion that I really want to do next for my career. I asked myself many times these past months… “If not now, then when?“.
