last night i complained about the clutter in this house.
i wish to take them back..the complaints..not the entry.
because this morning, i happened to read a FACEBOOK note* written by Saiful Nang about his wife who has a full time job but still manages to cook and look after her family well.
his note really made me realise that the clutter is not the problem.
my mental state is the problem.
i tend to say i can't before i even try..or give up halfway..or most often, blame it on somebody else.
ok, so..i have admitted that i have a problem.
*the note is in Malay but in summary:
he wrote that
1- his parents demanded that their future in-laws have at least these 2 important criteria; wears hijab and can
2- his wife has both criteria although he initially thought that knowing how to cook is not very important
3- after his mother died, he realised that what he missed the most about his mother is her cooking
4- he wanted his children to have the same kind of memory of their mother (his wife) so he himself began to
cook at home
5- his wife who is a PhD holder, picked upon his effort to cook more at home
6- he praised his wife for being able to manage the family well even though she is a very busy career woman
there's more but i'm pressed for time right now, still have to 'manage' my boys and complete a translating project due next week
but all in all, THANK YOU Saiful Nang for the inspirational note. I applaud you and your wife!
