I was a career-driven person not until I gave birth to our first daughter. I was hesitant to quit my amazing job as a senior interior designer of a popular company but I knew I had to give up the very thing that fuels my passion into a new life that I nurtured for 9 mos.
After long hours of labor, I finally saw and held my newborn and all I could think of at that time was the real essence of love at first sight. The kind of love that knows no limits and the love that continuously gives me strength and inspiration.
I admit I miss my dream job. So much. But I will never trade my small, beautiful family. I may not be glammed up all day and trading creative ideas with my colleagues and clients but I’m content with my greatest role- being a mother of three lovely and smart kids.
I’m ok with the reality of serving my husband and kids. Although I lack sleep and I barely have time to put on makeup when we go to the mall, I’m okay with it. I love it when they appreciate the time and attention that I give them. I cherish every moment spent with them and again, I won’t trade them for anything else, even with the job that landed me several accolades, international trips, and a bit of fortune.
I’m home and I’m happy. That’s all that matters.
