Ever since T1 was born, we have attended every single Sports Day that she has ever had. No matter what. We just drop everything. Supporting your kids school sports day is extremely important especially if your kid has a role, even if it is the flag carrier or the rubbish picker; no matter how small the role is. T1 has, of course, always been a key player thus far participating in kiddy telematches during her lower primary years and ALWAYS winning GOLD. Every single year. She is SO competitive, that girl, it scares me. Her determination is remarkably impressive when it is for something that she wants yet if it is for something that she doesn’t care about, forget it. No amount of money or kisses, could make her eat durian.
Supporting your kids school sports day offers ample of confidence boosters towards the kid, injected into their self esteem bank. It is no secret that the most successful people in the world are those who are confident in themselves, not the skilled experts, and to be truly happy, one needs healthy doses of self esteem. So, hot as it may be, uncomfortable and tiring, go!! Even if you have to drive 100km for it. Go. And please, do not discourage your kid to participate in their Sports Day because you are too lazy to attend their Sports Day? I know parents who do that. If it is important to your kid, please support him or her. The little effort that you make will go a long, long way. Trust me on that.
My own mother never attended a single sports day of mine that I can remember. In fact, I only remember my Dad attending some and I do remember being the star at every concert too without Mom around. She was never interested and as a child, I always wondered why I wasn’t good enough, important enough for her. Who knows why she didn’t make an appearance. I don’t judge either and at this stage, I cannot even be bothered to ask. But yes, up to University level, she was still not interested in any of the work I had done, anything I had achieved, nothing. It killed a part of me.
I do not want that for my kids so I put full effort into supporting my own kids School Sports Day. I think it is very important. So will you be supporting your kids school sports day this year? We always go all decked in BLUE.**************************************************************************
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.
