There are difficult times that strengthen us, there are quiet times that calm us, there are joyous times that renew us. There is planning and growing and falling and learning. All these times, these stages, these seasons are so so necessary for us to be who we are and want to be.
Working at home is pretty magnificent since you got to work side by side with your kids while at the same time making me slightly crazy on a daily basis. It got me thinking and wondering what would a day be like with my fellow work at home moms.
Looking back, I always thought that my love for books emerged when I was still young. I don’t read them though, but I would browse every page and look through the images only. I am fascinated and would dream about it. As a child, I expanded my imagination through books. As time goes by, I’d started to read them. I am captivated with fairy tales, and it was that inspired my love of magic and happily ever after.
It’s ironic how life works. You wanted this or that but not getting what exactly what you wanted. Then get frustrated. Then rise, try it one more time. One step forward and two steps back stumbling and falling, taking a risky detour. And by the time you get there, you end up feeling unfulfilled and wishing for something you never had.
The reality was very different. The mindset transition from working in the office to working from home is something I didn’t fully grasp until I did it myself.
