HENG ah ! ONG ah ! HUAT ah ! 😁
I've been to some dark places.
In my own mind. What brought me out? Honestly, myself. Don't get me wrong, this special little girl right here made it easier and so worth it, but I had to help myself before I could help her.
The questions that kept me up at night...
If I can't take care of myself, how can I take care of my daughter?
Will my depression and anxiety affect her?
Will she see me in different light if I actually pull my shit together?
What is my purpose?
I still ask myself these questions every single day. Why? Because I need to be the best possible role model for her. I want her to look at mommy and think...mommy has it together, mommy is strong, mommy is STABLE.
Repeat this every day until you start believing it:
I am capable!
I am disciplined!
I am strong!
I am worth it!
I love my life!
Only two things are certain, we were born and we will die. What you do with the time inbetween is so important! Don't waste any of it being unhappy. I beg you.
Leave a 💛 if you agree.Difference between I like you and I love you. I love you means you like that person, not love that person. You can’t love a person, you don’t know. It takes time to know each other and fall in love. Credit-Harish Muralidhar.
Days like today remind me why it’s so important for me to keep working towards my long term goals. Who wants to work a 9-5, living someone else’s dream, for the ReSt Of tHeIr LiVeS!? 🙅🏻♀️ I’m working towards a life built by MY design.
So I don’t have to sacrifice days and nights away from my future husband (still feels weird to say that). A purposeful life lived on MY terms.
A life where Joe and I can travel and not have to request days off. A life where we wake up and decide we’re just going to take the day for ourselves, taste testing our way through our favorite restaurants and breweries or taking a day hike, or backpacking the Appalachian trail, or volunteering somewhere after a major disaster, or staying with a family member or friend who needs us.. That is the life I am working towards.
Will it be hard? Of course! Good things don’t come easy. But ohhh will it be worth it. 💕
Life is precious. Savor every moment. Tell people you love them. Talk to strangers. Laugh a lot, cry a lot, and love a lot. Life’s too short to hold grudges over trivial things. Let go, forgive and cherish every moment of this beautiful life we live because never know which moment will be our last. Live fully and love intensely - it’s not the length of your life, but the depth of your life that matters ❤️ •
The freak accident this weekend really puts it into perspective just how quickly life can be taken from us. As humans we live as if we’re invincible and that it will never happen to us, but truly we never know when our journey on earth will be over. However life doesn’t end when we take our last breath. Our legacies live on like ripples in the ocean and memories in people’s minds💕. Praying for the Bryant family, the Altobelli family, everyone who was in and affected by the helicopter crash, and everyone who has lost loved ones recently 💕
