Life is real

Are you a working mum?

Mental Health See-Saw

Let’s talk about working parents for a minute. I’m heart broken and angry with the lack of regulations which would force employers to have clear policies and procedures in place for parents/carers. There is THE law which provides working mothers and fathers with a handful of rights but it also gives employers freedom of misinterpreting and misusing them.
I’m a mother of a child who is not even 12 months old yet and whenever she is unwell I feel sick to my stomach. I worry about her and I also face the lack of empathy or understanding from my employer.
A workplace should be a reasonably friendly place where you are productive as a professional doing your best. It shouldn’t be a place where you go to solely earn money and face discrimination due to being a parent and needing some time off to look after your child. It’s bad…

The Modern World

Life is real, Uncategorized

Why the modern world is so unfair?

Mental Health See-Saw

Simple and non materialistic things are what matters the most in this life. They enrich your life in many wonderful ways. They say- ‘Love and live because you are truly blessed’ BUT when you lack financial means all of the sudden you and your family’s mental and physical wellbeing is at risk.

There are so many loving and good hearted families with no money. Love for eachother is the only thing which keeps them from giving up. Parents put on a brave face often skipping a meal in order to feed their children. They work hard, they are honest, worried and anxious about tommorow yet they manage to smile for the sake of their children.

They say-‘Live in the present moment.’ Well, that’s a great approach but when you have children you must plan ahead otherwise your children may suffer and you don’t want that to happen. I wish life…

Initial Thoughts

Life is real

Parenthood…. initial thoughts !!!

Mental Health See-Saw

It’s been almost two weeks since our baby girl was born.

It’s been a challenge to gather thoughts and categorise them.

It’s been a turbulent ride of feelings and emotions.

It’s also been a wonderful time of a unique life transformation.

It’s been, it’s been… a journey of a lifetime.

Second of all, I want to say that nobody talks about postpartum mental and physical recovery of both parents. When you are pregnant you are bombarded with information about antenatal care, you are given basic info about postantal care but nobody really goes into details. Postanatal recovery is an individual process of bonding, healing ( mentally & physically) and accepting the new reality for both parents. After few first days with my newborn the reality of having a third person in the household ( apart from pur demanding feline kids) has struck me hard. I’ve realised that this little person…

Children at School- Thoughts

The world

What I can’t stand is when children who have problems with conforming to the rules set at school are often left behind. I find it frustrating because I used to be in the similar position. I had been forced to sit down studying core subjects against my will, but if only someone had combined both- the compulsory material with my  big interest in music and art&craft, I feel like I would have “absorbed” material quicker without  rebelling so much.

Where I’m going with this…children’s interests and talents should be encouraged and developed because they are the future of this cruel world ruled by “greedy parasites”. Young people are unique individuals who deserve best from their lives. What saddens me is that in many state schools, there is not enough time to focus on children who need  “ an inventive and unconventional power push” in order to fascinate them with, for example, Maths; I myself remember this particular subject as a nightmare, I almost failed my final exams only because “my lovely teacher” had decided that there was no hope for me, being straightforward, that I was too stupid to comprehend algebra not mentioning fractions. I had become more anxious, I had cried a lot, started harming myself and isolating from others. My self- esteem spiralled down to the ground (I was only 16) and the world didn’t make any sense to me. When my English teacher noticed that there was something wrong with me she helped me, I begged her to not talk to the “Maths Monster” (I think she must have talked to that bitchy creature as it was her obligation to do it so), to make the long story short… My teacher helped me by looking at me as at individual, by listening to me, encouraging me and motivating me based on my strengths and weaknesses. She was the first person in my life who told me something which has stayed with me till this day: ” Remember, you can’t be good at everything , unless you are a flaming genius, always focus on your strengths and use them to conquer your weaknesses”, I use it as a motivation to get through the day, especially during difficult times.

I work in the primary school as a TA with 5 year old children, they are bundle of joy but I can already see that they are prone to different things. I have a mixture of unique human beings who are outgoing, shy, quiet, bubbly, mischievous, funny, clever, nervous, caring etc.
The weight of teaching the little and young ones of how to use their strengths to conquer the weaknesses lays on our shoulders….
