Why I Blog- A Reflection

Why I blog
Why I blog
It has been nearly  10 yrs since Dominique’s Desk came into existence. You just have to flip through the blog to see how it has evolved since the first posts in 2007.
I’ve been documenting the milestones of the kids since I started this blog. The events and experiences that we have had are all chronologically written down with accompanying pictures in each post.
Looking back on the thousands of posts within this blog I see that the kids have grown quite a bit. From helpless babies till active tweens. There has been a tremendous difference year after year as the kids grow up. It has been a really emotional ride for me when I view pictures of the kids when they were newborns.
What started off as basically an online journal had evolved into an area where I share my thoughts on my passion – Education, photograph, health and wellness and parenting.
By penning down my thoughts it has given me a better clarity about the direction that I want my to lead my life with the kids.  It also shows me how much I have grown alongside with the kids spiritually and mentally.
To me it is important to have on-going documenting of the lives of me and the kids so they have something to reflect on/ look through which will remind them of the childhood that the had.
The memories which we created together as a family are etched in cyberspace for all to reflect on as and when needed.
This year I have not been actively blogging as I wanted to as there has been many  changes this 2016 which I had to deal with. Hopefully  in 2017 I will be able to dedicate more time to blogging and complete the series which are ongoing on the blog.

Why do you blog?

Highlights of November 2016

November was a really roller coaster month for me with lots of highs. You can say that I was on an extended adrenaline rush last month as I saw the fruits to the hard work that I have been putting in since the start of the year.

It was another reflective month for me as I pondered about the color of a person’s heart  and how easy it is for one to stray from the right path and away from GOD.

Many a times we are so tempted to give up as the challenges get too overwhelming for us to handle. However looking at how far we have come so far it would be a waste just to give it all up because we think we can’t hang on anymore.

November was a month that the kids and I had more time to spend together as a family.  We visited more places in and out of Singapore and had great fun exploring and soaking in the various experiences.

We were literally zooming around as we tried out the various activities that the kids were interested in.

Monkey boy's results for PSLE 2016

It was celebration after celebration when Monkey boy’s PSLE results was released. The hard work that he has been putting in had paid off and now he is reaping the fruits of his labor.  He has chosen the school which he is interested in entering and now am waiting for the result of that application.

As Monkey boy enters teen hood I’ve started reading up more about how teenagers are and I strongly recommend the book 1-2-3 Magic teens  as it will give you a better insight to how teenagers think and behave.

It has been an extremely long time since I had a girls night out.  Since the kids arrived it had been impossible to go out without them at night. However with some careful planning I manage to pull it off!!

How was your month of November?
