For the longest time since Tee started school right up to this year, she had maintained that she only had one friend, her best friend and nobody else ever came close. Since the middle of last year, that best friend had moved on to International School although she still sees him on the weekends or at parties/play dates. She would play with other friends, new friends…….but she would never acknowledge them as friends. I was so worried that I went as far as to consult the child psychologist who recommended some exercises to do with her about friendship.
I had to draw a circle and ask her to write her best friend’s name in it. Then draw a bigger circle around it and ask her to write her 2nd tier best friends, then another circle around it and more friends who are less close to her and so on. This is an interesting exercise that even adults can do. And finally, you write the names of those you do not like OUTSIDE the largest circle.
So after 3 whole years, I am happy to announce that at this new school, Tee has come home happily telling me that now she has a lot of friends. More than eleven!! Then she named them one by one.You cannot imagine the joy in my heart when my obstinate girl comes home with this piece of news!
And out of all these eleven friends, both boys and girls, she has named this little boy down here as her best friend in school. They get along like wild fire, the blue flame and the orange flame, happily dancing together…….
And just like her ‘other’ best friend, I hope they remain best friends forever…..**************************************************************************
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
