But just a few minutes ago as I was about to start some freelance work, I was side-tracked by Facebook and before I knew it I was browsing through some of the Mommy blogs. One blog lead to another and soon I ended up in http://mommyfleur.com/. The recent post on the site woke me up. It was like a tsinelas (slippers) that thumped me in the head really hard. It's called "Things I'm Afraid to Tell You".
She goes on to saying that a lot of people compliment her through her blog but the truth is she's not a perfect mother. She goes on to listing situations that I find all too familiar (chaotic house, not knowing anything about household, etc) And so I thought to myself, why am I so afraid of putting myself out there? This woman is so bold and straight forward. Her honestly makes her blog a good read. It has a lot of personality! And it's really a relief for me to know that I'm not the only mother who doesn't know what the hell she's doing. After all, motherhood is a lifetime learning process. The learning curves are never ending. Like what Richie says, it's MY blog. I can write whatever the hell I want with it. (Thanks hun! Love you!)
After reading Mommy Fleur's post, I came to an awakening that I'm not writing to please anyone, or to show the world that I'm trying to be a perfect mom. I can never be the Pinay Martha Stewart, most especially an Asian Nigella Lawson. I should just be the imperfect little me! It's these little errors, failed attempts that will make me be a stronger mom. Not perfect, but stronger :-) Thanks Mommy Fleur! You rock! :-)
