Call Me Little Bubble~

6 Jan

Greetings everyone! How are you in 2013?

Greetings 2013

Today when we were on the way to work, I told Kelvin that I think I am still in the pre-Christmas mood. Kelvin looked at me and said something like this: “Pre” is before, you should say “Post-Christmas”… I smiled to myself.

Yupe! That’s exactly how I feel now, BEFORE Christmas and I just couldn’t believe that we are in January already!

I have been resting since the discovery of my pregnancy through November and December and it’s like I have time-travelled from October 2012 and landed in January 2013 missing all the festivities…! Daily life of mine during this period is sleep, eat, work a little and then sleep again and repeat the cycle. I am living in my own little bubble and not interact with anyone besides my husband and my mum. How does that feel? I don’t know how to describe in words…

It’s something like you are travelling in a isolated small space-bubble heading to Mars.

Along the way, you experience all the:

1. Space adaptation syndrome (nausea and weightlessness)

2. You eat “space food” (things that don’t normally appear in your diet)

3. Sleep by yourself

4. Talk to yourself most of the time

5. At the same time anticipating to reach the destination you always dream of

6. Researching and reading about Mars and learning Martian

I hope you sort of get the picture now :)

And it is all because of this “isolation”, I notice that I have more time to spend with God. Pregnancy does make me come to understand God’s love towards us more. And each day as my baby grows, I come to realize that God is so amazing. Although I have not been attending church for many weeks already, but I have never felt so close to Him.

So this last Christmas became extraordinarily meaningful to me. I didn’t do any Christmas shopping, not decorating Christmas tree, not having a big feast with friends or family, no romantic Christmas getaway and I did not get lots of fancy gifts this time. And without all these sugar-coating of Christmas, I see the true meaning of Christmas clearer: Hope and Love~ It’s always about the love of God and the hope Jesus Christ came to bring for all of us.

At Eunice’s Christmas party. This was probably the only one party (activity) that I attended throughout November and December wearing my first maternity dress, looking fat and feeling blessed.

Lastly (before I end my not-so-well-structured post), to my dear readers, thank you so much for reading my blog. Although I don’t update very often now, but I am so grateful that you are there with me all these while when I am going through a transition period to my new chapter of life. I feel so blessed to have this blog and the ability to write, and having all of you out there to share my happiness.

May God’s love and peace be with you wherever you are and wishing all of you a wonderful and fruitful year ahead.

Eryn Lately…

17 Oct

Life has always been busy ever since we entered 2012… Before I unpack a luggage, there’s another to pack. Now, I started to feel so blessed that I am never short of clothes to wear, and (thanks to Kelvin) my ever-increasing jewellery collection. Now I have 2 cases of cosmetics and 2 cases of jewellery to switch and bring along to my next voyage. Although travelling is fun and I truly appreciate every chance to go out and explore the world, but my body takes a long time to adapt and recover…

This week, I realized that this year (so far) has been a wonderful year for me.

I look at the list of things that I want to accomplish this year and I’ve unknowingly completed most of them :) It feels like time has passed so quickly! To me, goals should get you excited and energized! It still takes hard work to complete them, but that’s the beauty of a goal. It can be anything your heart desires. Not something you think you should do. And the process is really fun…

At this age of mine, I sort of see everything clearer, I now see the world from a whole new broader perspective. I am more at ease and feel more comfortable about myself and things around.

I started to believe we are never too old to set a new goal, or dream a new dream… To celebrate where we are while we are moving toward where we would like to go.

If I can, I would like to freeze this fraction of life, and savour it. As all the good times and fond memories are those will sustain us, when, inevitably, life is not so kind.

Thank you so much for reading and wishing all of you a fabulous day with your fabulous self!

XOXO Eryn
