WAHM Diaries

Taking (Another) Hiatus

Hello hello!

It’s me, your friendly neighbourhood blogger slash full-time WAHM slash budding real estate broker. See also: trying hard superwoman filed under reality check. 

I’ve been trying to wear all the hats simultaneously, but this time, I really need to focus on the last one. Earlier this year, my mum and I decided to team up and start our own realty office (just about time), and there are a loooot of things that I need to do and take care of. I had virtually zero rest (outside of sleeping, of course) for the past several weeks and it shows — my eyebags are now too heavy to hand-carry. It’s time to face the truth and admit that I cannot do all of these things at the same time. I need to prioritise and de-prioritise.

I will never fully give up blogging; it’s just that now is a really really busy time. It’s a busy time at work as an operations manager and it’s a busy time trying to get accredited and affiliated with developers as a real estate broker. My blogger hat needs to rest first because I barely have time to even write now. Scratch that, I barely have time to do anything else now! I’m going crazy LOL!

But I will be back as soon as I can. Please be there when I come back! Love you all!

When Life Hits You Hard

I’m taking another ~indefinite~ blogging hiatus.

Was it just over a month ago when I declared a hiatus because I lost my phone? It seems like an entire lifetime away — times were simpler a month ago haha.

Now I’m going through another test (or challenge, which is what my partner likes to call it), and to be completely honest with you, it’s really weighing me down. Believe me — I am trying my best to surrender this hardship to God, and I’ve cried out to him a number of times — but the weight is still there.

I’d like to think of myself as a strong person, a strong Christian, but at this moment, I am struggling to even write this blog post down.

I cannot tell you the specifics of my situation, but what I can tell you is this: sometimes, life hits you — hard — out of nowhere. And come out of nowhere it did. I didn’t expect this at all. The possibility of it happening didn’t even occur to me. I know this test is teaching me a lesson, but I — we — just want to get out of it, unscathed as much as possible.

I’m trying my very best to distract myself while at work (which is not a difficult thing to do because it’s been a busy couple of days) but it’s a different story when my 8-hour work day is over.

But I’ll spare you the details. And the drama.

And rather than spend hours writing dramatic blog posts or, worse, half-hearted ones because my mind is on this, I chose to take some time off — at least from blogging — and use it for quiet time spent in prayer.

Whatever it is, I’m assuring you that I haven’t lost hope and I’m holding on to my faith.
