    Quote of the Day 027: The Action

    Our Quote of the Day conveys the message of how action speaks louder than words. The world has truly evolved. It feels like most of the people has to show something unique, exciting and all things beautiful! Is it good or bad? Right or Wrong? There’s a huge difference between IMPRESSING vs. EXPRESSING. It’s up to the person who delivers the message if he’s being mindful that anyone has an opinion. So we must act responsibly on what we say, do and show to others. In Motherhood, I received numerous advices..and they are actually great! I’m grateful for those who have shared their ideas and input on how being a…

    Quote of the Day 026: Giving

    Our Quote of the Day talks about the impact of giving and sharing. When someone asks help from you, how much are you willing to give? Not necessarily about money…it can be your helping hand or an offer of support…it can be a simple gesture of just being present. In Life, I truly believe that it is better to give than to receive. After giving birth, not everyone is aware that postpartum period is actually a critical stage of a mother. She needs support emotionally, physically and mentally. I can truly relate to this as a new mom. It’s tough yet we have to remain strong and positive. However, expectations…

    Transition to Motherhood: Where do I begin? It’s a fresh start!

    ” When a baby is born, so is a mother; each unsteady in their own way. Matrescence is profound and it’s also hard. And that’s what makes it human.”-Alexandra Sacks It was a sunny summer day when we were finally going home. Everything I packed for both myself and the baby were untouched except for my grooming essentials. We stayed in the hospital for a day but after going through the whole labor and delivery, the day felt so long.   As a first time mom, I got so excited and yes, I made it! “Congratulations! You’re good to go…” the nurse said.  Sure enough, I felt my experience wasn’t…

    Quote of the Day 025: Focus

    Our Quote of the day speaks about how we should focus ourselves to things that truly matter. Every single day, I am enjoying my time with my little one. We do activities together and witnessing all his milestones just makes me feel so blessed. Then I realized that time flies so fast and in the next 5 months, I’m going back to work. “How will I manage my time, am I able to handle it?” This quote reminds us that we should look at life in a brighter direction. If we think we are not able to make things happen because of our weaknesses, think about what we can do…

    Quote of the Day 024: The Test

    Have you ever failed a test? Do you know the feeling of being miserable in a way that you feel like you’re doing things wrong? Do you easily get discouraged and stop from there? Within the last 7 months with Little M, I had those moments.  As a newborn, there was a time when he wasn’t feeling well.  Then I asked myself..What did I do wrong that he’s feeling this way? Have I neglected my role as a mother? Am I not doing enough? In this beautiful journey, it’s a combination of happy moments and challenging ones. But one thing is for sure..it’s part of the experience of motherhood and…

    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…
