    Quote of the Day 033: Be not afraid

    It’s been a while since I published some inspirational quotes. This time, we will focus on what’s stopping us. What are your common fears? Are you scared to fail?

    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? Are you continuously searching for your passion? In Motherhood for instance, sometimes we try to do things to feel good as a mom. We have that Mom guilt. We look up to others thinking we are not doing enough. In fact, day by day, we are creating ourselves;…

    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…

    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?

    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…

Some may feel stressed the moment a thing goes wrong and others remain calm and relaxed no matter what the situation is.

I also plan the times to prepare during the day. That includes when to change, eat and feed the baby…
