Stream of Conciousness Sunday- The Journey

Beautiful Garden

Beautiful Garden

It has been a really long while since I joined in on this meme. A lot has happened since I dropped participating in this meme. However with the start of the new year, 2013 I am intending to raise my consciousness and embark on a different journey.

This time round the focus would be more on building up my spirituality and going all out to improve the overall development of the kids. My aim  this year is to equip them with life skills which will see them through their adulthood. Skills which are not really focused nowadays in the family like earning your keep, helping out in the household, social/moral values and building up one’s spirituality.

Many kids take a lot of things for granted and want instant gratification. They have been given the chance to fulfill their desires without even working hard for it. That shouldn’t be the way and I don’t want any of my kids to think that everything in life should be served to them on a silver platter.

Like the beautiful garden in the picture above it can only be as captivating if the gardener constantly takes effort to care for the plant and prune in regularly. I hope that with my regular “pruning” the kids will turn out to be as eye catching as the flowers above.

It is not an easy journey to be on and I’m glad that I have the support from R and the grandparents as they know that it will be extremely beneficial for the kids to go along on this journey.

What journey are you currently embarking on?


SOC: Spending the Holidays Together.

the boys This week we will be having all our meals together the whole week as we enjoy visiting the sights and sounds of  Seoul , South Korea.  The kids have more excuses to monkey around and have fun and I hope that I would be screaming too much at them if they get way out of line while out with them. We are on our first family holiday this year and it will certainly be a very fun experience for the boys. We will be bring them to two different theme parks- Lotte World and Everland.

I’m liking the internet connectivity here in Korea. Even the cabs have free wi-fi.  The hotel room we are staying in has it’s own small kitchenette, hob and even a washing machine.  Will be taking lots of photos next week and post then once we get back to Singapore.

What plans do you have for the coming week?
