As we get ready to bid adieu to 2017, I realise that the year has constantly emphasized the need for me to do one thing – make changes. Perhaps, these 17 reasons will explain why.
While my parenting experience is in no way exhaustive, I’ve come to the conclusion that parenting this new generation of ‘alpha’ children is more complex than expected.
Have you ever felt that some of your fears are irrational?
Maybe a little bit baseless and you’re perhaps being a little superstitious (or something similar)?
If I were to convert that into hours, I reckon it’ll be over 35000 hours.
That’s how long we’ve been together. Sounds like a lot, doesn’t it?
We live in a hurried world with jobs, families, kids, career, responsibilities and much more that constantly force us to be in ‘Get Shit Done!’ mode. We seem to rush through everything – seasons, life, relationships, even sleep. To be honest, I crave for simpler times.
It’s that time of year when you and I are about to get reacquainted. I see that look of fear in your eyes, although personally, I consider that as a sign of respect. After all, it’s important that you know who the boss is. And of course, the people around you too.
Anita Roy has everything going for her – near-perfect husband, an amazing family and a job that she is darn good at.
But life is rarely so perfect for anyone. Somewhere, somehow – the past always catches up.
Tolerance is a weird thing. We have it for things we probably shouldn’t, and have none of it for things we should be supporting.
Not a topic I write about usually. But I can no longer feign that I’m not affected by things around me.
I have often been crippled by the thought that normal people like me could not possibly be worthy of great things or such success. I have lived in the perpetual fear that someday, someone will discover what an imposter I am.
Apparently, I do nothing for #gender equality and am just an armchair activist.
Who knew! 🙂
A confession that may make you look at ‘Daddy Journals’ and my #Parenting in a whole different way.
Summer and I go back a long way. In fact, every time she comes around, she brings me an unforgettable gift. One that’s ‘too hot to handle’.
