Since mommyhood came, it’s been a series of adjustments and transitions in pretty much all aspects of my life, hence another hiatus over here on the blog. Interestingly, amidst so many things I got to do in the past few months, it was also a time when I’ve been feeling like I haven’t really done anything. Pre-midlife crisis of sorts? ?
Family side of things, I’ve been a busy (working) mom. I tried to leave the house as late as I can and to leave the office as early as I can without compromising the time and effort I put into my job. Going home, I bring more than enough milk for Noah that I even got to donate a lot of milk bags.
Work side, it was a time of so many new things happening one after the other (or was it all at the same time?!) that were way beyond my own capabilities. It was such a great privilege to have worked with highly competent and hardworking teams.
From the looks of things, it was a season of accomplishing so many things in so little time. But God (and my husband) knows I’ve been searching for something I couldn’t figure out. Or perhaps I just needed some down time?
I remembered a dear friend’s story about her quarter life crisis and it spoke to me. She shared her story here.
All along, God was in the process of birthing new things…
New dreams. New hopes. New beginnings.
Reading her story again recently has left me hoping for something yet to come. For now, I just love how the experience of others has helped me move forward. It’s way better than trying to figure things out alone. Do you have friends whose life experiences have helped you with yours?
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort.
He comforts us in all our troubles
so that we can comfort others.
When they are troubled,
we will be able to give them the same comfort
God has given us.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NLT
Looking forward to something yet to come. #faith ? …and some much awaited downtime! #whenDecemberisyourbirthmonth
