So it’s almost coming to the end of 2013 where I seriously want to de-clutter and take back my own space which means no more helping people, no more charity, no more listening, no more functions, no more favours, no more lunches, no more parties, no more anything. In 2014, I will only have time for my family. Selfish but true. It is for my own survival and I hope the world will understand. I feel a big weight lifted off my shoulders.
2014 is the year for my family, the one whom I have forsaken the last few years for. A few years ago, I had a relative who was in dire straits and I spent countless hours being with her (for a whole 2 months!) due to depression. My husband would get angry because he felt I should be sleeping instead of being with her till 5am in the morning just to make sure she did not kill herself, just to make sure she was secure in my presence, just to have somebody around when you’re really feeling like nothing in this world matters no more. I get so many of these sort coming to me and sucking the blood out of me that I can really no longer breathe, and this has been going on for years!!! Believe me when I tell you that I no longer have an ounce of energy to listen to anyone else’s problems anymore nor have the energy to offer solutions either. I am well and truly exhausted. It’s like being a free psychiatrist, something I think I am quite good at (minus the prescriptive drugs) but I no longer want it.
Don’t be afraid to still come to me though but be ready that I may turn you away. I have been solving my own problems since I left home so surely everyone has the ability to do it if they only tried. I’ve been in depression before. I know what it’s like but if you don’t give yourself a kick up your own arse and keep wallowing in self pity, continuing to be a victim, hey, you’re not going to move forward.
Thus 2014, I dedicate it solely to my family, an overdue gesture. My kids and my husband will have me back. Mama will not be out somewhere trying to save the world. There. I’ve announced it to you like it’s a pledge. There’s no going back now. I will NOT be helping you if you need help. There is a big world out there. Go find someone else to help you.
I’m going to focus on my home so I can finally de-clutter the home. Get rid of all those toys. Clean out the unimportant furniture. Get rid of unwanted kitchen utensils. You get the drift. I want more time to play with the kids, read, travel. It’s going to be ALL ABOUT US, 2014.**************************************************************************
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.
