The Gratitude Challenge (Day 19): Fearless

"Have confidence in all the choices you have made today and be grateful for being able to believe in yourself."
I won't be talking about the choices I made today but about the decisions I have made in my life so far.

Motherhood has suddenly made me unafraid. I have this new-found energy to do and be so much more. I chose to remain at home and manage our household. And more than anything in this world, I want to be the one to take care of my little boy. I simply couldn't bear to see another person holding him; taking care of him. Those smiles and hugs are meant for me.

Though I struggle, I make sure to be in touch with my girlfriends. I am grateful for Facebook, Twitter and their blogs as they made it easier to connect with family and friends.

I am determined to blog as regularly as I could. I keep this and Javi's Tumblr site fairly updated. I want to document and share his milestones using web channels. It is easy for me to update my family in Bulacan on Javi's daily activities.

I have started coordinating the Philippine visit of a Canadian organization. I am believing that this is the beginning of more opportunities to work from home. My best friend helped me in coming up with my own name card. It feels strange meeting with business associates and not being able to hand them a piece of card with my contact details I want to appear somewhat "professional." We both decided to not put a "title." The possibilities are endless for now. I am wiling to take on any job that interests me.

There are mothers out there whose social life ceased to exist once they have a child. I refuse to be on that same boat. Javi does not keep me from meeting my friends. If I have to bring him with me, I would.

I rarely say no to invitations. There's this voice in my head encouraging me to go ahead.

Javi and I are traveling again to Manila. As this is our 3rd trip, I'd like to believe that I am a smarter traveler - that I will get used to traveling with an infant and it will get easier.

I get all my strength, not from the vitamins I take, but from the Lord. I am more confident now because of Him.
