Life Updates continued...

Picking up from yesterday....

Previously I was a software engineer + a technical writer for a large multinational company till November of 2014.

I have since then ventured into tiny paths of earning some pocket money. 

I have always been passionate about dancing, it is almost second nature to me, and ever since I was 19, I was already leading a dance team. So for almost half my life, I have been dancing! Wow. Seems freaky phrasing it like that. LOL!.

Rewinding to early March this year, a friend asked if I would be interested to teach dance as an after school activity in an International School. I was totally apprehensive at first but then I could do with a little extra cash *winks*, so almost reluctantly.....I said yes .... submitted resume and I got in. Yup cheers to new adventures & pushing new boundaries.

I taught for a full semester. YAY!

Cheeky monsters. Its a lot of work trying to coordinate everybody to dance.... but I adore them. :)

Mid year of 2016

Ha Ha Ha Ha. Im so tickled by the header of this post. What a way to begin blogging in 2016. I'm funny like that. *winks*

So maybe some updates will be good ya?

Lets see, in no particular order, and random updates... ;)

I have been a home maker for the last 19 months. While it has been a dream of mine to take this bold step, it has been challenging in every aspect. Dreams requires sacrifices, and sometimes to the point where you start questioning if this is what I bargained for. Interestingly enough, in the midst of trying to get a foothold of things.......confusion sets in....then doubts & fears begin to creep in.....drowning in self pity and negativity becomes a norm. 

Thats when it strikes a chord, do I want to remain like this (high chances of spiralling down further) or look up! Lift your eyes up and catch that glimmer of light and hope. 

I will op for the second option just because my life has a purpose and a reason and truth be told, I have not even begin to scratch the surface of living a life that is full of legacy to leave behind. 

We humans tend to focus on the things we don't have and what we cannot do. Seriously, there is enough negativity in our world, shouldn't we balance it out or even better, tip the freaking scale?

In the last 19 months, I have invested so much time with my family and friends, just bonding and being in the moment. Life has been very very spontaneous, sometimes a little too spontaneous for my comfort...but I think it is all temporary and maybe, maybe just for this season. In retrospect, I have many things to be thankful for. Many.
