I actually was going to schedule a short post today, one of those “Things Jerry say” that have been in my draft folder for the longest time.. but i have decided to take the time to craft a short thank you post.

The response from my last post on breastfeeding have been very heartening. I was initially quite hesitant to share but now, i am so, so, glad that i did. I learned so much more. And i learned that while i thought i was the “only one”, suddenly there are so many of you who reached out to me and tell me you moms thought you were the only one. Turns out, we are all in the same boat!

A lot of you left me comments to thank me for the inspiring story. But guess what? You people inspired me. #truestory

What you don’t know is…for the entire week, or even from last week, i have been so tired from work, busy with life, frustrated with the kids and am on the brink of losing my sanity. The lack of sleep is doing me in, and i struggled to meet deadlines, reach work on time etc. I shouted way too often, both at the kids and the husband and i feel totally bad that they are bearing the brunt of it all from my lack of time management skills, or should i say, the lack of focus.

I wanted to do some much at the same time – work, blog, spend time with the kids, eat dinner with the husband, and do self improvement all at once. I kept hitting road blocks and nothing seemed to be smooth or going well. I was trying to be the over-achiever and am on the brink of burnout. I was going to throw in the towel and let the blog go dead while i go pick up the pieces in my life.

but you guys gave me a renewed energy. all your words made me feel whatever i have done thus far is right, and that i should just hang in there and ride the rough tide over. Tough times dont last, tough people do right?

Well, i’m not exactly tough but i guess i can be sweet. anyone want to taste me? (JOKING!!!!)

Can i ask all of you to keep those comments coming? Let me know what you would like me to blog about or just drop me a question on anything that you might want to know. I can share and we can all learn together! As for the “how to milk it” post that i talked about, how about next week? Give me some time to put my thoughts together on that.

Meanwhile, i chanced upon this quote and it really spoke me. I really had a rough week and was pretty depressed (until i saw all those comments of yours) and i guess this says it all.

positive-quote

#quote of the day (#qotd) for me. Like totally.

and yeah, i am so having a party! and its FRIDAY! Happy weekend people! Spend time with your loved ones (i know right, am so guilty about them now), and the things that really matter. #tgif

(p.s. somehow when i crafted the above post, my boss’ voice is ringing in my head.. “you need to focus..“)
