Blog English Club Personal

EF #1: Equilibrium

Assalamu’alaikum gorgeous!

After I read mba Nita’s post about BEC, I decided to join this new club. My intention is to practice my english which I barely used since long time ago. Actually my confidence just drop into the lowest level after I read some blog posts of my fellow BEC bloggers. 😆

Long story short, as member of BEC, we shall make post every Friday based on the picked theme, and it has to be written in English (English Frday/ EF). Yep, this kind of challenge did make me gulp, and drown me in sweat, literally! Pfiuh..

So this week theme is “word for 2015“.

I want to pick a word that describe my vision to be more consistent, stable, content and balanced. So I chose:

I have the urge to evaluate my last year’s journey, and I reach a point where I think that this year will be perfect to reach the equilibrium of my life.  I need to improve my personal life instead of focusing too much on my job, gadgets, whatsoever.

Well, right now I already have a son who’s growing up so fast-I-can’t-almost-keep-up, sometimes it makes me sad to leave him with nanny at home, even for 5 working hours, and it’s not everyday. Altough my “office” is just 10 minutes from home, but still, I somehow think that I waste my time on working too much, I “forget” to look after my kid. I always got my gadgets near me and intensively “communicate” with the social medias and business thingy while my son is watching me so busy with my gadgets, and sadly, he’s playing by himself. 🙁

 My husband and I are also planning to have more kid this year. Hopefully when the time comes, I can focus more on my family and my religious activities. Aamiin.

after all, family comes first, right?

  4. Hi Mba,
    Really nice written post. You have choose an unique word that I’ve never thought off.
    About gadget, I shared a video before in the group, titled Look Up – and also posted it on my blog (Social Media). But yes, most of us now are caught up with the gadget and forget about people around us. Hopefully we can manage a balanced life. Cheers.
