Death by nature.
Death by nature.
Do you believe in fairy tales
Where dreams do come true
And good guys always win the race
And live happily ever after too
Fluffy cotton candy clouds
Showering gum drops down below
On a fancy castle or a gingerbread house
Sets on a valley of green meadow
Fairy dusts and magic spells
Sprinkled paths of magical quest
Possibilities aplenty in this hopeful land
But reality got to take a rest.
12th November 2017
Zarif, on this day, I’d like you to know your important role in my discovery of motherhood. An exhilarating journey with numerous ups and downs, twists and turns, broken hearts and happy tears. But undoubtedly, a heart full of unconditional love for all my children. A love like no other that goes beyond the unthinkables in this world.
You’re my baby, my pain, my love, my worries, my heart, my headache, my smile, my frown, my pride, my stress, my joy, my nightmare, my strength, my weakness, my champion, my enemy, my laughter, my tears, my motivation, my despair, my everything there is there. You’re my son.
Happy Sixteenth Birthday, darling!
Go on and chase your dreams for life’s too short to live with regrets. Tomorrow’s not a promise, but today’s a new day.
Loving you with all my heart, Mummy ❤
Relationships can’t be forced into becoming what it’s not meant to be. With each passing day, the weather changes and becomes more unpredictable. The relationships that we have are like that too. Some are easily affected by external factors, while others remain consistent with minor impacts that probably go unnoticed.
Knowing you’re putting in so much efforts but lacking in progress is not a pleasant feeling. It’s like pumping air into a flat tyre with a punctured tube. You keep pumping but the air disappears. How frustrating, isn’t it?
Being in a relationship requires both parties to respect and honour each other’s time, as well as effort in making it meaningful. If these needs aren’t met, it’s truly useless to pursue it any longer. There’s nothing left when you’re drained from all the trying, except a bitter aftertaste.
Don’t linger. See yourself worthy of a better person, not just a drifter who wanted a temporary shelter from the storm.
My fun loving teen loves the sense of thrills running through his veins. Stuff that makes his heart jumps and skips a beat are often deliberately sought out. He’s always game for any adventurous pursuits or scary rides at theme parks. This boy rarely thinks twice before getting himself in what a sensible adult considers dangerous.
Then there’s the tween who’s an avid collector of everything under the sun. When other kids played with toys, he started his collection of Barney the dinosaur and The Wiggles VCDs. Since young he developed a great sense of navigation to where the shops can be found in a mall. Each year there’d be something new that caught his attention. Once it was the Beatles and he spent hours googling about their life and looking up for memorabilia on eBay. Thank goodness he didn’t pester us to buy any!
As for Little Missy, she’s an outdoorsy kind of girl who enjoys going about with our neighbour’s boys. Riding her bike, playing footie and running around. After becoming confident to ride without the stabilizers, she coached her friends to do the same. Little Missy often gets annoyed when hearing girls and boys shouldn’t play the same games or be good friends. A good thing though, she has her own mind and is not listening to those party poopers.
My 3 year old bambam, is exactly like her older sister, but much braver and bolder. That’s not really a problem until you realized she’s only a little girl who has no sense of danger…just like her eldest brother!
One thing for sure, we should learn something from the kids. No matter what, be happy in your own skin by doing stuff that makes you feel good.
So, tell me what’s yours?
Whether you’re a mum or a dad, a stepmum or a stepdad, a single mum or a single dad, an aunt or an uncle, a grandma or a grandpa, a sister or a brother, a woman or a man who’s responsible for looking after a child, you’re a parenting idol. Being the carer, you’re known as the parent of the child. A role that comes with huge responsibilities and quite a number of occupational hazards.
Because of the risky lifestyle that you keep facing everyday, your amazing achievements in numerous feats that only a parent knows how, should be celebrated. Such as,
Though being a parent can be a nightmare at times, do know that you’re doing just fine by loving and caring for your children in the best possible way. No one should undermine what or how you do it. As a parent, you’re simply wonderful ❤
Breathe in deeply, exhale slowly.
Mindfulness matters a great deal.
Spread good vibes only.
Today was a good day, even if all you did was breathing and living.
Always have faith, and never stop believing in it.
Free your mind, body and soul.
Keep hope alive until your last breath.
Let’s coffee…coffee makes you happy. Trust me.
