It has been a long time since I last visited this page, and a good 7 years that I’ve paid to maintain this page without using it much. When I started this page, I meant to keep a log of my memories with my children, so that they may one day grow up to read this and relive their childhood days through my point of view.
It seems that I have failed in this regard, because other than an incomplete photo log of some sporadic events some years back, I have not been maintaining a consistent log of my experiences and lessons learnt as a mother, as well as a visual log of the children’s growing up years.
It is difficult to strike a balance between wanting to maintain a publicly accessible repository of events in my life (that I may not have to worry about losing access to the records) as well as maintaining a reasonable level of privacy.
In any case, I’ve officially tipped into the second half of my 30s and begun my journey into middle age. In the last 10 years, I’ve been caught up in a myriad of things starting from trying to get my work life in order and then trying to figure out motherhood. I’m still trying to figure a lot of things out but I think I’ve at least reached a reasonable equilibrium of satisfaction. It’s time for me to slow down, reflect, and spend more time penning down some of these thoughts that I may look back one day and tell how much I have progressed (or not).
