Enough of feeling never good enough

The other day in the cab, i was thinking..

Trying to figure out why there's always this feeling of being never good enough. It's like i never do well enough for myself to feel good. I do, sometimes, on some things. But that's not good enough, is that, you have to do good for people you love, to your best ability, all the time, on all things.

Best.

How do you even try your best when you are a mum?

Since i become a mom, i always say "I'd try my best", how do i know if i'm already at my best? The best that i promise i'd try to be, how do i know if i am there yet?

To blogging, "I try my best"

To being a mother, "I try my best"

To being a wife, "I try my best"

To being a friend, "I try my best"

To being a daughter, "I try my best"

To being a sister, "I try my best"

To being a good aunt, "I try my best"

It is not good enough. I am not good enough. And i never will be if i keep trying.

I will only be good enough if i stop freaking trying.

And just be. Just be the best.

"I am the best" and i gotta start telling myself. I am the best mother i can be to Meredith. Pretty sure nobody loves her more than i do haha.

I am the best wife to Josh, pretty sure nobody can tahan his quirks like i do.

I am the best family member to my family members cox i am so cute? LOL.

I am not the best blogger but i am the best me you can get LOL SO DEAL WITH IT.

I am not everybody's bestfriend and that is perfectly okay. If someone is everybody's bestfriend then you gotta be careful of this person lolol #friendho LOL.

Anyway what i'm saying is.. I had enough of feeling never good enough. There's no way to trying to be the best, there will always be better, and there's no need at all to even be in comparison. Every mom is trying their best but i say we should stop trying.

We just all be the best kind of moms. We are all good moms. I also want to feed Meredith food three times a day and feed her all her milk, shower her everyday, change all her diapers and wipe her down and put her to sleep every night. And if i can't do that due to work, i just have to suck it up and look forward to tomorrow where i can be as obsessive as i want to be lolol.

I have to stop feeling so upset whenever i have to work T.T I really have to stop. The past one week i look at my schedule and everyday including the last weekend, there's work to do, places to be.

In my head i was just like "Kill me, just kill me, what am i missing out" But i am doing my best!!! I can't be cancelling all jobs right. I already am slowing down by so much and turning down a lot of jobs. The me in the past would be a crazy work maniac and take it on regardless lol.

And then when i get home i am so tired but i just wanna be with Meredith until she sleeps. Which is 11.30pm if we're lucky, 12am on normal day and 1am if we're unlucky LOL. But nowadays we're trying to train her to sleep by 11pm lah. But the thing is she alwayssss take super short naps in the day so it's really hard to catch her pattern. But i'd keep watch =D

Anyway yeah, i was saying, when i get home after work i just wanna die but i wanna live to play with Meredith LOL. And when she's asleep liao, it'd be a whole night of kicking and jabbing and nudging me and Josh, then next morning when i wake up at 9am i'd feeling like dying again LOLOL.

That is why i say, i respect all the mothers who do it by themselves. You guys are the strongest species that ever walked on earth, dinosaurs extinct liao you all still surviving. Hats off.

But hey, i am not as good as all those moms, but i am good enough for myself.

I am doing my best. I do everything by myself as much as i can and i am enjoying it, but i wanna enjoy it even by not wanting constantly to TRY to be even better.

I am good enough. I am not going to try anymore but i know.. I know i will just keep getting better.

❤︎ Hokkaido Fresh Milk ❤︎

Sponsored Post


Introducing Hokkaido Fresh Milk today~ =DDD

Hokkaido Fresh Milk is flown in fresh from Hokkaido dairy farms. It is the closest you can get to the nourishing creamy goodness of Hokkaido so highly raved about by people all over the world, without flying there!

Everyone knows how premium Japanese produce are. With the love, dedication and passion they put into their produce and services to maintain the high standards they have.

And out of the hundreds and thousands of things that Japan is known for, the fresh milk from Hokkaido is famous for being the best kind of milk one can ever taste.

Why you might wonder..


Tell me you won't be damn happy and chillax if you grow up like that haha.
These are some pictures of the cows bred and taken care of in Hokkaido. You can google them also!

The farmers ensure that they create a pleasant and relaxed environment for the cows, feed them only nutritious food like mix of coarse feed (fermented grass, corn and hay) and concentrated feed (corn and barley etc). And the farmers will check EACH cow's physical condition on a daily basis =OOO

Omg the farmer's love and care for the cows are like how you would take care of you own family O.O

Also, the cows are only milked during their prime years, and they grow with spacious area for them to roam free and exercise within the pasture.

Omg there's so much to take care of for these cows, really salute the farmer's dedications! It's like raising many many kids of their own O.O Gotta put in so much loving heart and soul into it T.T

SO SO SO SO SO HAPPY NOW I CAN GET SOME OF THESE AWESOME HOKKAIDO FRESH MILK IN SINGAPORE!!!!!! =DDD

Sorry too excited!!! Cannot contain my excitement hahaha!!!

You all know i very biased towards Japanese stuff one =X And it's for good reasons!!!

The Japanese really takes pride in the things they do.

They make sure they only provide the best with the best value.

Take for example.. You must have heard of the $60 Hokkaido melon.

Before i ever tasted it, i was like.. RIDICULOUS. Who would pay $60 for a melon?!?!?!

After i tasted it and understand how the Japanese made it happen. I would. Any day. Do you know how this melon is produced? For example if a melon seed can grow a vine of 10 melons.

Instead of letting them grow (and have the sweetness spread across for example 50 melons), the farmers stuff the shoots back into this one precious melon. And so this one melon can grow to be as sweet as it can get.

This is not about the know-how. Everybody can know how to do something good, if they want to learn.

This is about making the choice to be excellent, instead of doing only what yields quantity and what is most profitable. And i think we should give a lot of respect for that!!!

Same goes for Hokkaido Fresh Milk. They choose to be excellent, starting from good field, good healthy cows, good care and attention paid to the cows etc..

Hokkaido Fresh Milk is produced by the renowned Yotsuba Milk Products Co. Ltd, by established dairy farmers in Hokkaido. Expect only the highest quality and nutritious dairy milk in each pack. It is their promise to upkeep the good name of Hokkaido produce, known for freshness and quality.

Flown in fresh from Hokkaido dairy farms, Hokkaido Fresh Milk is milk in its simplest and purest form. There's NO addictive because it's good on its own!

Of course it's also the best milk you can get for dishes that requires milk haha. Or for your beverages like tea, smoothies, ice cream etc!

Or for your baking needs!!! You all must have heard of Hokkaido milk pudding T_____T It's sooooooo good T.T Or simply dunk cookies in Hokkaido Fresh Milk.. It makes a tasty wholesome treat filled with goodness!

Goodness and maximum nutrients that are being retained fully thanks to the non-polluted farming environment and safe extraction methods!

Do you know, Hokkaido Fresh Milk makes up for 52% of the total dairy volume in Japan? Even the high-standards Japanese support this brand the most haha. My whole family only can drink Hokkaido fresh milk now on haha!

You can have it as a simple beverage with your favourite cookies ^.^ Here i have my breakfast oat cookies with Hokkaido Fresh Milk! You can also try it with cereal!!! I love it with honey stars hehe!
Another way to enjoy your food with milk, is to dunk cakes in it and scoop it up immediately =OOO Most people do it with cookies but omg i'd tell you, with cake, it's like milky cake pudding =OOO
Or, you could add Hokkaido Fresh Milk into your favourite tea or coffee ^.^ It's soooo rich, it will only make your tea yummier =D

If you're wondering about the taste, i can only tell you, you have to try it on your own to really appreciate it T.T It's soooooo good!!!

It's creamy and rich, yet refreshingly light to taste!!! Very well-balanced! I know some people don't like the heavy taste of milk, then you have to give Hokkaido Fresh Milk a try!!!

It goes down so smooth T.T It's like liquid gold air-flown in from Hokkaido, from the farmers who put in so much of their life into making it good. I feel quite touched O.O Thank you Japan once again, for sharing your awesomeness with the world T.T

I LOVE IT~!!! =P
Please go try it!!! =DDD I think it will be your favourite milk from then on!

Hello~

Back again for update haha!

Last 2 - 3 weeks has been phenomenal becox my baby grew herself two tiny teeth =DDD Like half mm each haha. And she's learning so much new things, like to go on her side and try to support herself up, to blow raspberries and then waiting for someone to pick up her "call" lol.

It amazes me that at 6-7 months old, she's already so interactive. I think she's gonna grow up to be a chatterbox!!! Whenever she does something she'd make sure everyone is looking. LOL. What a show off. I wonder this trait is inherit from who one! LOL.
