Bellissima is the Italian word for “beautiful”.
As women, we are on a journey of finding beauty and joy…
For many mothers, we sometimes find it a challenge to find the beauty in what we do. Especially when we feel isolated, burned-out, and unappreciated.
When we learn to love ourselves and care for ourselves, we can be the wife and mother our family needs.
If you are struggling with self-love, know that you are not alone. It took me three decades before I understood what it really means to love yourself.
I am still on this journey, and I am learning something new everyday. It is my greatest honor to share my story with you.
Travel is also my passion. I like to bring my toddlers with me whenever I go see new places around the world. We moved from the Philippines to Italy two years ago so that we could learn about a new culture. As a teacher by profession, I believe that traveling is a wonderful way to learn new things. I love sharing tips on traveling with small children. I also like to travel alone as a way of loving myself. It gives me time to rest and recharge so that I can be a better mother when I come back from my break.
No matter where you are in life, know that you are loved. You have a beautiful soul. You are enough. Be You.
