It’s Okay to Ask for Help

Have you ever heard of the term ‘Shark music’? Last year, I attended a mother’s group for my second daughter to help manage her anxiety issues, and I was introduced to this metaphor. In the famous ‘Jaws’ films, there’s always that same eerie music that plays as the shark swims nearby. It basically foreshadows that… Read More It’s Okay to Ask for Help

Success Means No Excuses

Imagine you’re going for a job interview the next day. It’s for a position you’ve had your eye on for a while. You’ve been preparing for weeks, practising your responses, laying out the right outfit. You’ve got everything down pat. Then you get a phone call. Maybe someone close to you has passed away. Maybe… Read More Success Means No Excuses

Being Unique is Important

Being a writer is such a scary thing. Every time I publish a piece of writing, I’m putting my thoughts on the line and opening myself up to rejection. It’s nerve-wracking, but exhilarating at the same time. However, for someone like me, who never imagined she’d become a writer, it’s all the more scary. Growing… Read More Being Unique is Important

This is Your Life

I’m not an angry person. Emotional, yes. Angry, no. If something upsets me; I might feel hurt, I might even cry if I feel that bad. But recently, something absolutely infuriated me. You probably know by now that I got married and had children quite young. I don’t regret any of my decisions for a… Read More This is Your Life

There is No Success Without Failure

It’s incredible how fast your perception of a situation can change. Once upon a time, I thought nobody was reading my blog. In April 2011, I set up this blog to write about my parenting experiences so others would feel less alone. As the months went by and the time cut into my busy schedule… Read More There is No Success Without Failure

You Are What You Believe You Are

I’ve learned a lot about myself since becoming a mother. I’ve learned even more about life. You see, I have 3 young children – a 2, 4 and 6 year old. All of them have a speech and language delay. And it’s been tough on me; emotionally, mentally and physically. But in my six years… Read More You Are What You Believe You Are

The Greatest Love of All… Comes From Within

Four years ago, someone very close to me lost a loved one. It wasn’t due to illness, it wasn’t due to death. His seemingly perfect relationship with his partner had come to an abrupt end. He lost the girl he thought he would spend the rest of his life with; the woman who he thought… Read More The Greatest Love of All… Comes From Within

My “Instant Happy” Happiness Tool

A friend of mine once criticised me for being “too nice”. She thought that I needed to change, otherwise I’d be taken advantage of one day. Funny thing is, it was actually being “too nice” that saved my life. In a previous post, I wrote about how I went through a tough time and believed… Read More My “Instant Happy” Happiness Tool

Balancing the Fun & the Serious

I once received a compliment that made me laugh and smile. A classmate, who I’d only known for two weeks, made a rather blunt observation about my personality. Known for his smart aleck comments, he said to me, “You know what’s really cool about you? You’re smart, but you’re not a nerd.” Funnily enough, that is the… Read More Balancing the Fun & the Serious

Why It’s Good to Say No

I was never very good at saying no. I was afraid of the consequences. I wanted to please others. I didn’t like the idea of confrontation. But as adjusted as I’d become in my comfort zone, this behaviour was never in my best interest. I was so focused on saying yes, I didn’t realise why… Read More Why It’s Good to Say No
