Terkadang, mood atau  perasaan seorang ibu bergejolak seiring dengan kesibukan. Perasaan senang, bahagia, sedih, jengkel, marah, stress, semua datang silih berganti dari waktu ke waktu. Belum lagi pash periode senggol bacok (PMS). Kesibukan akan berlipat ganda bagi seorang Working Mom. Stres dengan pekerjaan di kantor, ditambah dengan rutinitas macetnya Jakarta yang makin hari makin tidak berprikemanusiaan, kadang  membuat perasaan semakin tidak menentu.

Sadarilah bahwa tugas seorang ibu adalah tugas yang sangat mulia. Mood seorang ibu biasanya berpengaruh pada suasana keluarga. Perasaan gembira dan energik yang dimiliki seorang ibu yang bahagia akan menular kepada anak-anaknya. Berpikirlah positif terhadap setiap masalah yang datang, dan gunakan logika serta intuisi yang tepat untuk menyelesaikannya dengan baik. Menjadi seorang drama queen memang bukan keinginan tiap perempuan. Tapi, secara tidak sadar cara kita menanggapi tiap permasalahan akan menentukan apakah kita seorang drama queen atau bukan. Berpikir realistis dibandingkan mengedepankan perasaan. Hobi yoga yang saya mulai lakukan beberapa tahun belakangan ini cukup membantu saya untuk bersikap lebih tenang ketika menghadapi periode swinging mood. Karena berpikir positif dan realistis akan mengurangi perselisihan serta menciptakan suasana yang lebih baik.

Sesibuk apapun, luangkan waktu untuk memanjakan diri sendiri, melakukan hal yang kita suka. Menyelam adalah pilihan saya, minimal meluangkan waktu satu kali dalam sebulan. Itulah bentuk "me time" saya... Kenikmatan indahnya surga bawah laut menumbuhkan semangat baru, yang menambah energi untuk mensupport keluarga. Empat  kali weekend dalam sebulan tentunya bisa kita gunakan sebaik-baiknya.

Cukup sudah, hentikan, jangan lagi merasa bersalah para Working Mother di seluruh dunia... Enjoy your life, always do the best, di rumah ataupun di kantor. Bukan hanya karena Working Mom atau Ibu Rumah Tangga. Semua itu sama-sama baiknya, jika dijalani dengan baik pula. Karena anak-anak harus dibesarkan oleh ibu yang bahagia menjalankan perannya. Seberapa banyakpun peran yang harus dijalaninya. Karena anak-anak harus dididik oleh ibu yang bangga dengan pilihan hidupnya. Agar kebahagiaan dan kebanggaan itu juga dirasakan dan terpancar dari anak-anaknya. Saya berbahagia menjadi seorang Working Mom, dan saya mendidik kedua anak perempuan saya menjadi perempuan yang mandiri sejak dini. Walaupun keputusan ketika mereka dewasa ditangan mereka sendiri. Saya berusaha agar mereka bangga memiliki saya. Apa dan bagaimanapun itu... Bahagia, atas segala hal yang sudah diberikan dan dilakukan oleh ibunya. Kita hanya bisa memberi apa yang kita punya kan? Jadi kalau pengen anak-anaknya bahagia dan bangga, ya seorang ibu harus punya Ibu yang berbahagia. Apapun pilihan hidupmu jalanilah dengan sebaik-baiknya.

Cause Happy Mom creates a happy child. Don't lose your self in your identity as a mother. You were a woman before you met your husband. You were a woman before you had your children. Don't lose sight of who that person is. Spend as much time with your children as you can, but don't feel bad if you're spending time at work. Enjoy that time that you spend contributing to society. When you're at home, be present with your child. It's quality over quantity, always...HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!

 

 


 

Life is fleeting years rush past . . .

and little girls grow up so fast!

Let me take time out to be

glad that mine's still here with me.

And though I'm busy through the day,

let me take time out to play . . .

Let me take time out to smile,

to linger with her for a while . . .

To invite her under the table for tea and dress up silly as can be.

Let me take time out to sing and dance

and skip and twirl and swing . . .

To splash in puddles when it rains

and make her fancy daisy chains.

Let me take time out to hear

about the things that she holds dear.

Let me tuck her in at night,

hear her prayers, turn off the light.

And for one more moment let me pray

and thank God that we shared this day...

 

Thank you God, for giving me another year of life.

Thank you for all the people who remembered me today by sending cards, and letters, gifts and good wishes.

Thank you for all the experience of this past year,

For times of success which will always be happy memories,

For times of failure which reminded me of my own weakness and of my need for you,

For times of joy when the sun was shining,

For times of sadness which drove me to you.

Forgive me for the hours I wasted,

For the chances I failed to take,

For the opportunities I missed this past year.

Help me in the days ahead to make this the best year yet,

And through it to bring good credit to myself,

Happiness and pride to my loved ones, and joy to you.

Amen...

It's my 17th Birthday today (hahahaha).  I'm just thankful for everything, all the blessings in my life.  Every engaged in a miracle, a blue sky and oceans, white clouds, green leaves, the black curious eyes of my daughters. All miracles...

I'm in beautiful island now for my october spiritual journey. Because our birthdays are our soul’s visionary days. Our special connection with the infinite is more powerful than ever on our birthday. And then continues for something my self what i have been trying to do for really long but have not started it yet. I decide  upgrade my Scuba Certification next week.

I must say, it’s been a pretty interesting ride so far. As I look back over the years and many phases of my Iife. I realize how each stage, success, stumble, triumph and heartache has had a significant impact on where I stand right now. And despite the rough patches, I love it all. I’ve learned a lot over the past year, about myself, my strengths, my faith, my weaknesses, about who I am and who I want to be.

And to many life lessons in this  year:

Be grateful for everything. The good, the bad, the ugly. Our entire life is a precious gift. The pleasure, the pain  it’s all part of our path.

In being true to yourself, you can’t possibly make everybody else happy. Still, it’s better to risk being disliked for living your truth than to be loved for what you are pretending to be. It's so hard for me coz i'm a Libran.

Everybody comes into our life for a reason. It is up to us to be open to the lesson they are meant to teach. The more someone rubs us the wrong way, the greater the lesson. Take notes.

Hurt people hurt people. Love them anyway. Although, it’s totally okay to love them from a distance.

You have to feel it to heal it. Bring your fears and weaknesses front and center and shine a blazing spotlight on them because the only way out is through. The hurt of facing the truth is So worth it in the long run, I swear.

Forgiveness is not so much about the other person. It’s about you and for you so that you can gain the peace and freedom you deserve. Forgive quickly and often.

Let your soul shine!  There is nobody else on this earth just like you. Step into your truth wholeheartedly and live and breathe your purpose.

Don’t take life too seriously! Nobody gets out alive anyway. Smile. Be goofy. Take chances. Have fun.

Sometimes we outgrow friendships. It doesn’t mean they’re bad or you’re bad. It just means you’re on different paths. Hold them in your heart, but when they start to hurt or hold you back, it’s time to give space or let go.

Our bodies are our vehicle to our dreams. Treat them with love and fuel them with the best health to feel vibrant and energized. But, never obsess over image. Looks are subjective and will fade in time, anyway. Feeling good, healthy, and comfortable in our own skin is what matters most.

 

Today, I want to say Happy Birthday to My Self and My Best Buddy.

Age is just a number, but the higher it gets, the more wisdom and life experience we’ve amassed.

So embrace it, love it, and enjoy it fully!!!

And thank for my beautiful angels. I want to be the best mom I can be  mocuishle... and embrace both of you with all my love.

Thank you for familly and friends who send me birthday wishes by email, by via sosmed, by chat, and call  me in the morning... Meant a Lot to me!

Again, thank you all...

 

 

 

For my beautiful daughters, I was blessed with two of you...

You will never know how proud I am of all the things you do.

You came into my world, so tiny and so small...

And I was in awe at the wonder of it all.

Then you placed your little hand in mine...

There was no denying, my heart was yours 'til the end of time.

I have watched you both throughout the years, laugh, cry and grow...

And it is difficult to know that someday I will have to let you go.

I just can't imagine a day of my life without you...

Because you're a part of me and my love for you is true.

So just remember, no matter how old you are or where you may be...

There's someone who needs you and loves you and that someone is me!

 

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships.

These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...

Remember, to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person might not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
