Twice a day, my decision to be a working mom is put to the test.
The first is when I leave home in the morning. The energy needed to overcome the inertia of being mommy-mode at home takes lots and lots and lots of coffee.
The second is ironic because it's when I leave the office. Because of traffic. Manila traffic mocks me everyday: you asked for this. this is living the dream, baby.
So why do I do it?
Mariel and Sanne of The Learning Basket asked me to write about why I made the choice to be a working mom. These two moms are amazing homeschoolers, but we met purely through our online discovery of surprisingly common passions. I've always been vocal that homeschoolers are my inspiration and I use many of their principles in my life as a working mom.
My answer wrote itself, and turned out to be intensely personal and related to the picture above. Haha! If you read it, I hope sharing its message brings you purpose and peace whatever life path you're on. Thank you for being here, learning along with me!
