    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.

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Quote of the Day 017: The Butterfly

    Have you ever felt like you don’t belong in this world or you felt like everything you do is wrong? Have you lost confidence in yourself or have you grown into a better person? There are days in our lives when we feel like a total failure. During my first few months as a Mom, I admit there were those short moments when I didn’t know what I was doing or I felt like losing my mind because of a crying baby. But instead of giving up, I set my mind that this shall pass. Day by day, I realize I am growing as a person and as a Mama…

    Quote of the Day 016: Kindness and Gratitude

    Have you ever done something extraordinary to someone without asking anything in return? How did you feel about it? Do you believe in the saying, “It’s better to give than to receive?” Everyday, we surround ourselves with the most significant people in our lives…friends, family and loved ones. We mostly share the same values.   In times of need, we are open to give and help without the need to ask. This quote applies to anyone or more specifically, to all the moms in the world. We provide support and love to our family. It doesn’t matter if we get something in return but it’s our motherly instincts that dominates.…

    Quote of the Day 015: The Lead

    Do you have someone in your life whom you admire and look up to? Is he/she a role model? Is he/she authoritative and dominant or does he/she remain humble? Everywhere we go, we see different kinds of people…at work, in school or at home. When you lead, it doesn’t mean you’re ahead than anyone else. As C.S. Lewis says “It’s not thinking less of yourself but it’s thinking of yourself less.” So never look down on anybody. Being proud is the greatest enemy of your own self while humility makes us real as a person.The question is …How do you practice humility? How do you remind yourself of your place…

    Quote of the Day 014: Live and Learn

    Have you ever felt so overwhelmed that sometimes you just want to pause for awhile and wish that life is perfect? No stress, no worries, no problems and no mistakes? Everyday in our lives, we face challenges and obstacles. In every action we do comes consequences. As a first time mom, I learn different things everyday. I am learning what my son’s likes and dislikes. I am having a trial and error of my actions. I commit mistakes and it’s okay. No matter what you’re going through right now, I hope you’re enjoying every minute of it. Be happy. Life does not need to be perfect. We learn as we…

    Quote of the Day 013: When it matters

    Have you ever woken up and not feeling like you want to give all for something you wanted to do? Everyday, there is something we strongly want to work on. We train ourselves for the better. As many of us do, I also search for meaning.  I look for values that will guide me.  As a new mom, I want to ensure that what I do makes sense.  I’ve come to believe that if I work hard for something, I will be successful in my journey. For instance, sleep training my little one.  Yes, it may be hard in the beginning but for sure it will pay off in the long…

    Quote of the Day 012: Time

    Have you ever had one of those days where you are so tired, you can’t seem to do anything except binge-watch a tv show and just be alone for a while? Do you call this as wasted time? Sometimes our mind is full of pressure, there’s a lot of unnecessary stress. By doing nothing, we label ourselves unproductive. So much time wasted. But is it though? If you actually enjoy this moment by yourself without doing anything, don’t feel sorry. You sometimes deserve it. Do the self-talk. It’s not a wasted time. You’re refreshing your mind and body. You’re decluttering the pressure inside of you. Embrace it with gratitude. You…

    Quote of the Day 011: The Action

    It’s Monday and it’s a fresh start! Today’s quote speaks about Theory vs. Action. This applies to my journey as a first time mom. There are tons of information from books and online. Any mom can have access to it. Prenatal classes are also provided. I’ve read and have attended. But what’s the lesson? Theory is just a blueprint, an outline on what to expect. It’s like a draft on what you’re going to write. It’s not the final outcome. It’s the first-hand experience that matters and the actions I take and how I raise my child is what’s important. It’s my own encounter and I’m embracing it the way…

    Quote of the Day 010:Who I want to be

    It’s a beautiful weekend and this quote is perfect for anyone who needs to be what they want to be. Some of us are influenced by society. We are stopped and blocked. We want to do something yet it’s not the right time or it’s not what other people expects you to be. Give yourself an affirmation. Be yourself. Be the best version of yourself. If there is one thing you want to do for yourself right now, what would it be and why? Share your thoughts!

    Quote of the Day 009: The Dream

    It’s Fatty Friday or let’s just say Fabulous Friday.  Today’s quote talks about Dreams. The question is..do you have dreams or if you call it goals? Are they realistic? In what way? When you think about it, do you spend a little bit of your time writing them down so you could plan your next steps? Are they SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bounded)? With a busy life as a first-time mom, I can’t keep track of things and time is constantly running. It’s very precious. Thus, I normally take down notes, set timelines, take action and check them off as it happens. Even prior becoming a mom, I…

    Quote of the Day 008: The Habit

    It’s Throwback Thursday. Today’s quote speaks about habits. I remember my good old days…late in classes, work, meet ups, and appointments. I would rather be the last than be the one waiting. As I grew up, I realized that it’s actually stressful. I hate rushing and being disorganized.  It might feel good in the beginning but it’s not what it’s supposed to be. Respect of one’s time is important. Motherhood then changed me even more. I learned how to prepare 2-3 hours ahead because I now think not just about myself but with another person. Thus, breaking the chain of habitual tardiness is a change I’m happy about. Planning and…
