A chat about my journey in life so far and the Life Lessons Learnt. Recently, I have found myself overwhelmed with my life, me as mum, as a wife, as a sister, a friend as well as building a career path. Having too much to in so little time. I have gotten to do to a point where I have had to revaluate what is worth my while. Maybe I have left this post too late since I am already in my mid 30s (goodness I’m old!) Oh well, I’m here today to share with you about how the Life lessons learnt have brought me to my decisions. At the age that I am now, 40 years isn’t too far off. I have come to understand who I am and what deserves my attention and not to care too much about what others think of me.
I have come to the realisation that family is of uttermost importance to me
I am thankful to God for blessing me with a wonderful extended family, a hardworking husband and a lovely soul of a daughter who I am enamoured by. Everyday I am learning of how blessed I am to have the family that I have and to love and cherish them.
A good balance between being a home buddy and still having fun
I have always been a home buddy. I would rather cuddle up inside a warm blanket and binge watch an unhealthy amount of YouTube videos than to go out during my day offs to have a good cheer. However I have come to the realisation that a healthy mix indoorsy and outdoorsy life wouldn’t hurt anyone.

A healthy number of friends
I have never been the one to have lots of friends, I usually latch on to a few and stick to them. That’s not going to change because I believe that having many friends is unnecessary, it is important to have a few good friends. However every now and then, you need too filter out your friends and cut off any negative connections.
Opening my eyes to false realities
Too much of what we see are illusions. I am learning to accept my realities as they are and knowing that there is not going to be anyone me’er than me. As a queen of overthinking, I am always on a journey to achieve perfection in everything, but I have come to a point where I believe that I need to let my guards down and focus on doing the best that I can in any given situation without putting too much pressure on myself.
The pursuit of success doesn’t have to be an arduous expedition
The journey to success should not be a herculean task, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a start point and a finish line. The road to success meanders towards different directions. Different sorts of success can be achieved at different points of this journey.
Perfection is but an utopian concept but near perfection is achievable, with little steps, taking the day as it comes and remembering to breath along the way, I shall get there
