Been a long time I haven’t write anything on this blog. Adulting is so hard and tiring. I wish I could go back to my writing habits but not this time.
I just started as a new employee at Shell (Congratulations to me!) and of course, with great salary and benefits comes with great responsibility) just in case you wonder why I’ve been so busy these past few months and you didn’t get anything new from this blog.
I just wrote this blog to encourage my fellow Singles in our church to join us for our upcoming Singles Getaway! If you don’t know what #MAP means, it stands for Metro East, Antipolo, and Pasig congregations.
In fact, I’ve been into two different singles retreat. First one was in Boracay and the last one was in Batangas (4 years ago). I’ve learned a lot and met a lot of people whom I call now as friends.
The Singles Getaway this year will be on July 19–21, so if you haven’t signed up yet, let me share with you three great reasons why you should! This blog was inspired by an article in Act Like A Man.
1. Meet new friends.
There is no better way to meet new friends (I mean real friends who will stick closer than a brother/sister) than in the spiritual family.
Back in 2013, I only have a handful of friends, I was a dead kid who was so reluctant to meet new people.
What made me decide to finally join? Of course my new found family. Knowing the importance of meeting new friends and expanding my network within my spiritual family is worth it. I get to know other people as well who can relate to my daily life as a young professional.
The friends you will meet here are for life! They can surely help you to fulfill your calling. There are no accidents when it comes to relationships. Today, some of these friends I’ve met from two singles retreats were married and have their own families already and I am proud to say that I can freely come to them for accountability, career coaching and love life tips (wink wink).
2. You need a break!
Come on! This is a retreat! You need some relaxation and learn to chill after all the stress in your professional life.
This getaway is not only a way for you to escape from the reality of adulting life. This event will also allow you to learn while you are on a break! If you are a learner like me or I prefer calling myself as a “seminarista” ( a person who loves learning by attending conferences and seminars and training for the sake of learning and personal improvement) this is for you!
3. A powerful session with Dennis Sy and his wife, Thammie Sy.
Pastor Dennis Sy is the author of Act Like A Man Book and Rich for Life. He is also the founder of Act Like A Man Philippines. I learned a lot from this man and I am always looking forward to hear from him.
I get to know him when I was just starting to walk my new found relationship with God. I often listen to his podcast as I don’t have a church to attend yet. From there I followed his blogs and read it as soon there’s new blog coming in!
I finally met this man in one of his book writing training. I’m glad to be mentored and coached by him in the process of writing my book. And oh, by the way, this man was the first best selling author who expressed interest in buying the first book I wrote! Haha.
With his wisdom and experiences, you can learn a lot. Get practical insights from him that you wouldn’t want to miss, especially in the area of relationships, work, manhood, marriage, and maximizing this season we have!
I am so excited to meet him again! I’m a big fan of his blogs and (hopefully if God allows me to have a partner) I can talk with him and his wife on a date. Haha (wink wink).
We will also be having other speakers for sure. So as early as now, prepare your questions that have been lingering on your mind for years because I am sure they are ready to answer it!
