Why parenting becomes so hard?

I am not a parent myself but I believe parenting was and will never be easy. Many individuals raise concerns returning to the work after parental or maternal leave. I never experienced such break myself so I will not comment on this. However, I can imagine to return to research after few years of no... Continue Reading →

When I realise the value of knowledge…

Last night, I had an urgent call from my parents saying my sister is sick. Their instructions made no sense to me so I called my sister directly for clearer understanding. She thinks she's sick and have some fever. I was totally in rescuer's mode, acted immediately. Following is our conversation.Me: Do you need me... Continue Reading →

What happened if I didn’t have a mentor?

In an occasion, I was attending a group meeting with other youth. Our topic of the meeting was "mentor and disciple relationship." We allowed questions to evolve around this topic as we go. Some questions arose were:Do you have a mentor?Who's your mentor?Why did you choose this person as your mentor?What are the quality you... Continue Reading →

What lies inside me?

I found believe in my inner quality was a challenging thing to do. I have given permission for others to determine my quality, purpose, and value. I even allowed others to judge my existence in this world. This is how I used to value myself. No matter how many people told me that's not the... Continue Reading →

How to start taking an action?

Why am I saying sorry?

Probably, it is my nature. Probably, it's how I've been brought up. Probably, it's the culture. I remember I used to say 'sorry' very often. One day, my sister asked "do you really mean it?"

I had an opportunity to spend few hours with my parents alone. It is unusual after I moved out of home. Usually when we catch up, it will be with my brother's family. I assisted and escorted them to a specialist consultation for my father. We get to the consultation separately and they dropped me... Continue Reading →

When I reflect my current situation…

I am feeling confident about myself and appreciative or gratitude about my life. I am expanding my life through pushing out my boundaries. I am more courageous and enjoying every moment in...

Learning from children: drawing

One day, my sister-in-law asked me whether I have noticed anything about my niece's drawing of the family. I replied 'no' and she explained. "Do you remember a theory that drawing of a child reflects how they feel at the time? I think that's exactly what she has drawn." I couldn't believe what she had... Continue Reading →
