    Quote of the Day 023: Reflection

    Sometimes, we tend to judge others on what they say or do. Only to realize, we haven’t looked at ourselves first. That’s why…I believe in the saying “Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others do unto you”. It’s a powerful way of saying that we must be mindful in our words and deeds as this is a reflection of ourselves as well. Being around with first time moms, we share different experiences from pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. Our situations are unique in our own ways. So if one is struggling in one aspect, it does not mean that her life is vulnerable. No one has the…

    Quote of the Day 023:The Plan

    Are you a planner but gets frustrated when things go sideways or are you spontaneous and flexible in any way? People have different personalities when it comes to handling a situation. Some may feel stressed the moment a thing goes wrong and others remain calm and relaxed no matter what the situation is. As a new mom, things have changed.I realized it’s good to be both spontaneous and a planner. When we go to Mom and Baby classes, I prepare the night ahead so I don’t miss an item out. I also plan the times to prepare during the day. That includes when to change, eat and feed the baby…

    Quote of the Day 022: The Challenge

    When you want to do something yet you’re having self-doubt, what inspires you to jump into it? Oftentimes, we hope for something to work out. We want to aim for our goals but we don’t know where to start. As I am enjoying Motherhood, I want to start this one journey that I thought I couldn’t do..So I told myself today, I can do this. This is the best time for me and this is meant for me. Change is good and learning is great! How about you? What self-affirmations do you tell yourself in order to face life’s challenges?Share your thoughts.

    The Absorbent Mind by Maria Montessori:Chapter 1

    Have you heard about the Montessori approach in raising a child? I haven’t until I became a parent myself. I’m a first time mom and I’ve been seeing a lot of information about Child Development. I am obviously overwhelmed especially that Social Media has taken over and I don’t even know which one to follow. I found a lot of resources on Instagram and joined Facebook groups relating specifically to Parenting, the Montessori way. It made me curious. What is it about? What do I get out of it? What is her philosophy and what does it say? Luckily, I was able to connect with a former nursing schoolmate. She…

    Quote of the Day 021: The Mind

    Do you sometimes feel stuck and unproductive during the day? What do you do in order to counteract this feeling? Being on Maternity Leave, I see and care for my little one 24/7.  How do I find time to blog? I actually didn’t think about entering into this journey. As I started writing, I realized, it’s my stress reliever.  There’s no better feeling than to be just by myself and gather my thoughts. As everyone is asleep, I’m able to find focus and balance. I just start to punch those keys, drink my coffee and yes, my brain starts to work. If we don’t open our hearts and minds to…

    Mind, Body and Soul: It’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday

    This post is part of SoCS Stream of Consciousness Saturday. The word prompt for today is soul/sole. Use the word/words in any way you can. Let’s start! It took me awhile to write this post. As I stumbled with the word, I told myself it’s gonna be easy. Yet, as I’m reflecting now, I realized…there’s more to it. My mind is full of distractions. I need balance, I need focus. So today, I started a challenge with my little one. I was searching for something. There’s that missing piece. I’m starting this journey to self-love. My sole aim is to find balance and peace within myself. Lots of things are…

    Quote of the Day 019: Involve me

    When you want to learn something new, how do you want to be taught? Do you learn by listening alone or through working together? As a first time mom, everything is new to me. This applies to my little one as well. What he sees, what he hears, and what he feels are outcomes of my approach. This is a new world for him. Now that he’s achieving a lot of milestones, how can I develop it even more? Showing and telling him needs guidance.  He needs a prepared environment.  He needs more involvement as the first 2 years of his life are crucial in his learning.  As what the…

    It’s never too late to try something new: The Benefits of Mom & Baby Ballet

    “If you want something you never had-you have to do something you’ve never done”-Anonymous Ever since I was a child, being able to perform and connect with my body is something I look forward to. I love to express myself through dancing. It’s the bridge between my mind, body and soul. It provides me an emotional release and an outlet despite the ups and downs of life. At around 8 weeks postpartum, I introduced Little M to a routine which we both liked at home. It’s my baby wearing journey through dance.  He likes the beat of the music, the rhythm, the swaying and rocking, and of course, the cuddles…

    Quote of the Day 018: The Winner

    Have you ever felt so motivated that you just keep going on despite life’s challenges?  Do you easily get affected by what others say or do? Do you easily give up or do you keep on striving hard? Life is not sailing smoothly all the time. There will always be ups and downs. You see people being successful and sometimes you see yourself stuck on one end. One lesson though is never compare yourself with others.  If you see others succeed, be happy.  When life gives you obstacles, tell yourself “I can do this, I am a winner. No one is in charge of my success except my own self.” In…
