I don’t know about you but what i realized is that, when i was in my 20s i want to achieve everything in life. Learn everything i can, may it be just for fun. Those years i want money more then anything else in the world.
I took fashion design but never finished the course simply because i hate sewing but i love to design. Proud that even though i did not graduated but i manage to design a casual wear and evening dress for a contestant for Miss Sabah in 2006 if i am not mistaken. It was wonderful looking at your creation being wore by a contestant.
Took makeup course and made money from doing part time makeup artist, but i got busy with my children they were small at that time and i no more doing makeup for others just have fun doing makeup for myself. Some of my special experience being a makeup artist was having not enough makeup because i though my friend will come with her makeup that when i was new in the field. There was one time i was doing makeup and hairdo for a bride, there were no electricity but she wants to curl her hair, how terrible that day was to me.
But when i reach 30s, i struggle to what i want and what i need. Its all about family, i need to make more money and i need to work hard. Yet still my main problem is ‘time’ for myself and family. I learn few things and got certified in NLP which is a good help for me.
Almost reaching 40! next year no more number 3 it will started with number 4. Only few months to go for me to reach 40 but now i feel like it is better to live life simple.. as simple as possible. Money is very much a priority those days and still we need money now but we are smarter and wiser. My draw my mind map and it was achieving a bungalow, big branded car, everything that money buys but recently i feel the urge to go back to a small town, garden my own vegetables and fruits.. need to redo my mind map see what comes out.
Nothing is more important than family and my children especially. As long as we have enough food to eat, a home to stay in, enough to pay our bills and other expenses, enough for even small saving.. it is ok as long as family together.
There are things we can’t give them and i teaches them why they can’t have everything and i make them understand that ‘the best thing in life are free‘.
Life is beautiful if you make it simple!
