    Quote of the Day 032: Life

    In your life right now, do you feel contented of your accomplishments or do you feel the pressure to blend with our society? At times, we tend to look for perfectionism. We continuously search for something that is beyond our expectations. Instead of finding what you want in your life, have you actually given time to internalize what you are looking for?

We look up to others thinking we are not doing enough. In fact, day by day, we are creating ourselves;…

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.

You’re good to go…” the nurse said.  Sure enough, I felt my experience wasn’t…

    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…
