Have A Nice Day, Mommy!


I wrote this post in the beginning of April 2013, but haven't posted it yet until now.

After three months of maternity leave, finally it's the time to go back to the office!

Being a career woman and a mom means that I have two different worlds: the one before 9 am and after 5 pm; AND the one between 9 am and 5 pm. Home life and office life.

I love them both.


The funny thing about having Baby Michael is, I'm more determined than ever to excel in everything I do. Not just as a wife and mother, but also as a career woman. It's not a pressure, mind you. It's not that kind of feeling that "I should" or "I have to" that gets you stressed out. Instead, it's a positive feeling that motivates and energizes me, that I can and do want to do well. Not just for my baby or my husband, but also for myself and for God.

Oh yeah, there are times in the morning when I just want to curl up under my blanket instead of playing with Baby Michael before work. There are times when I just want to finish my work at the office instead of rushing home at five o'clock sharp to my baby, as I set myself to do. There are other times when I just want to go home when it's only lunch time because I miss my baby very much. But somehow, after three months of craziness and helplessness and total chaos kind of feeling, my body sort of adjusted and I am able to handle the exact same situation (including lack of sleep) with positivity and (relatively) more inner calmness. Which is a progress of me becoming more and more the woman that God wants me to be, I think.

And that is such a wonderful feeling. ^__^

"So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God." 
(1 Corinthians 10:31)





Dear Son, you are a gift from God that I never thought I'd ever wanted, but turned out to be the one that I   will not trade with anything or anyone or any amount of money in the whole world.
Mommy loves you, Baby Michael!

Great post! Everything we do is to be for the glory of God. I think when we focus on that, it so much easier to get through the day without totally stressing over stuff.
And your baby is beautiful by the way :)

Wishing you all the best back at work. It's hard wearing all those hats (and high heels). Glad you are feeling so energized right now.
