I am a stay-at-home mom for several years now, doing the usual things like driving the kids to school, managing household stuff, and the list can go on and on. I survived more than three years without house help. Most moms doing these stuff are complimented as “super moms”.
But lately, as the kids are getting older and need less assistance and more independence, I am beginning to have the desire and urge to reinvent myself. I want more…not that I am not enjoying being a full-time mother and wife (as if these jobs can be part-time! No, it is always a full-time job whether you are employed or not). But there is the desire to be more. Maybe this is brought by the fact that we come to a point that we need more income than before. A dual-income household will make our lives simpler.
Corporate work is not for me. I am considering going back to teaching but, the usual classroom does not appeal to me anymore. I want something bigger, something more exciting than an 8 am to 5 pm work.
Then a friend invited me to join the EMPOWER WORKSHOP by Smart Start Session. I made my Saturday free and told my troop (2 kids and hubby) that I am taking a day-off to attend a workshop. There was more anxiety than excitement at first because I felt I was either too old or too late for an empowerment.
The workshop was a mixed of people, young and old, and from different fields. Glad to know that I am not too old for this and I envied those who were really young and starting early on their road to reach their dreams.
DREAMS! This is a very powerful word in the workshop. The activities made me realize what I really, really want and how to prepare and plan to have them. I felt I like a train being placed back to the rail track, engine starting and ready to move on.
Super Moms can do so much more once they are empowered. We do not have to leave our posts as homemakers, housewives, full-time mothers, or whatever you want to call it at the moment. If you want to be a “super mom”, you should be willing to go beyond your COMFORT ZONE… your home. Super Moms would like to zoom and explore the world to help more people.
