Bettinna Carlos has been through a lot of ~big~ life changes in the last few months: From getting wed to Mikki Eduardo in December 2021 to moving to La Union just this last month! In an Instagram post, she reflected on how she has been adjusting to the provincial life so far.
Bettinna Carlos on life in La Union so far
"A month living here today and LUvin it. I know a lot of us never imagined we'd be where we are today. I did not expect I'd already be living in the province this soon!" she wrote.
She revealed that though moving to La Union was in the cards when she married Mikki, she didn't anticipate having to go there so soon. "Marrying @mikki.e.eduardo meant being ready to leave the city to move to LU EVENTUALLY like tail end of this year, nearing moving into our home (di ko akalaing ganito kaaga besh! Hahaha) But we really are not in control! Neither over circumstances nor time. The Lord is."
She shared that their move hasn't really been easy—both physically and emotionally. "It was an unexpected almost abrupt move. Almost Exodus-like when we go back to that time we decided to pack up and leave. It was also uncomfortable and challenging the first weeks—beyond the geographical and physical move, there were emotional aspects to it too."
Leaving her life in Manila and hauling everything to La Union was tough, but Bettinna credits her faith and her husband for giving her the strength to power through this major life decision. "It was a month of dark valleys and mountain tops (and I'm sure many more to come—but as long as I'm with you my Love and the Lord with us, yakang yaka kahit ano, ano?). But the Lord has been generous in supplying us His strength and faithful to carry us through everything. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for enabling me not just to endure, but eventually to enjoy and now embrace where You planted us."
"Thank you for my husband. Thank you, Love. I praise God for your wisdom. Let's grow deeper and stronger here, yes?"
We can't wait to see more of your LU life, Bettinna!
