I have a love-hate relationship with yoga. Whenever I would be in the zone, I would practice every single day—even going as far as hiring a yoga teacher or squeezing in a group yoga class despite my hectic schedule. That’s the “love” part. The “hate” part is whenever I would feel too lazy to practice, especially at home. Primarily because back then our #BigBoyJesse would always invade my evening yoga sessions at home.
One of the things I looked forward to writing about when I launched B = Happiness in March 2019, was my love for essential oils. Unfortunately, I was not able to sustain the momentum in blogging because I was offered to return to my corporate job, so writing took a backseat. But not oiling! Oh, NEVER oiling. Haha! Though I was not able to blog, I founded Oh, Happinest–our safe space where we share about all things oils, wellness, and happiness.
I don’t hate raising a child or being a parent, OK? I originally wanted to name the title “10 Things I Hate About Parenting,” but the #architecthusband JS made me realize that “parenting” is such a broad and deeper concept, which goes beyond child-rearing. It’s true, in our almost 28 months of being parents, what we know and still learning are nothing compared to what our own parents have gone through while raising us.
