This has been written from the iPhone so I’m not going to be anal about the English errors! Frig! Typing this on the iPhone is hard! I can’t see much, just few words here and there so if it comes out completely wrong, c’est la putain!
I have been blessed recently to be sent away for work and although it is the first time I have ever been away from my kids for so long, I now recommend Stay At Home Moms, ALL moms actually, to take time out at least once a year (more if you can!), to book yourselves into a hotel for 2 days (heck, a week if you can but I know that is bloody unrealistic) as it will completely rejuvenate you.
I have been away from my lovely kids whom I truly love from the bottom of my
anus heart, and I have had video sessions with them every night and although I have been working my ass off during the day and night, I have had pockets of ME TIME!!!
I have a suite with a jacuzzi (which I never used), a wonderfully huge ass shower room (so lovely when you can wipe yourself in warmth before exiting into freezing air-conditioning!) with the largest rain shower I’ve ever seen where I luxuriate in self cleaning with peaceful fragrance. I have had time to read without interruptions, watch the news, enjoy my meals in quiet, spend 4 hours at the spa leaving me completely rejuvenated and blissful; and although my wonderful boss advised me to spa every night, I didn’t because there was so much else that I wanted to do, like catch up with friends over the email and Facebook, and simply just enjoy my ME TIME doing absolutely nothing.
Blessed and recharged!!!
I even work at night in the suite yet it has been such a happy time for me. My kids miss me, for sure, and so does the hubs (Bwahahahaha….though he may not admit it! I did ask how he was enjoying life without my presence and he said it was boring), but I get to see them via the home CCTV and so I know they are safe.
I cannot recommend it enough to you moms. Book yourselves into a hotel room for one night at the very minimum and just chill with your own soul, find yourself again, and return home to being the best Mom that you could ever be.
When I get home, I’m going to tell the Hubs that I’m checking into a hotel locally 4 times a year. Woohoo! Yay, me!!!**************************************************************************
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.
