Some awesome things I want to manifest in my life

In October 2015, I wrote 20 things I want to accomplish before year 2020. That time, I was just learning about manifesting. It was only a few months since I started journaling. I don’t really know how to complete the list – 20 is quite a number of goals so some of them are just whims (travel to Korea, Japan, US) which not surprisingly didn’t happen. Those I considered major goals and which I worked on to manifest – own home, saving x million pesos, resigning from my daytime job – all happened in a short span of 3-4 years and before my 2020 deadline.

That time when I wrote my 20 to 2020 goals, I’m not entirely sure how it will happen. I mean, resign from my job by 2020? How? But God works in mysterious ways and my favorite Bible verse: “With God all things are possible.” The Wealthy Pinay mantra: Dream, Believe, Take Action.

Now that I’m turning a new chapter of my life – that is being a returning OFW – I want to start a new list of all the amazing things I want to manifest. Note that I won’t mention about good health, safety, great relationships, deeper connection with God, etc because these are all universal and everybody wants them (unless one is psychotic) so please don’t write a message lambasting me for being materialistic, narcissistic, blah blah.

It would be interesting to read this after 5 years let say. For sure some of these things which seem luxury now will become my normal after a few years. Ten years ago, I can’t imagine ordering more than 2 appetizers yet nowadays it’s something we don’t think about when dining out.

So here we go: things I want to do, I want to have, and I want to become.

I encourage you to do the same. This post might help you get started. Remember, it all starts with dreaming. It is possible to manifest the life you want. Some dreams take a long time, but most happen quicker than you’d expect. You just have to start.


I’m sharing my everyday journey of being a stay-at-home mom, entrepreneur and returning OFW on Instagram and Facebook. You know I’m not into social media because I’m not the ‘me’, ‘me’, ‘me’ kind of person. Who wants to know my life, right? But I realized that’s a wrong mindset.

Sharing my life on social media doesn’t have to be about Lyn Joy and what she’s eating, drinking and doing. Instead, I could use the platform to share the realities of a former OFW who is striving to be a homemaker and businesswoman. My kind of sharing definitely.
