I turned over a new leaf.

My family spent our quality time with the in-laws for the New Year's holidays.

Before visiting the in-laws, I was actually hell-bent on being a perfect mom and wife. I have to admit that I might have been a perfectionist. In fact, I had too much on my plate; nevertheless, I thought that I should do everything. What was worse, I expected my family too much about everything, and chided my son for trifling matters as if I were a micromanager. It is clear that I was terribly self-centered.

Thanks to my son's letter I wrote here in late December and the time I spent with the in-laws, I was able to take another look at myself again and feel totally refreshed.

Ever since my family came back to our house, it seems that my way of thinking might have been changed. Maybe I haven't felt stressful at all because I think "You-my son, should decide and follow your decisions" instead "I should do", and I talk to myself: "Do I have too much on my plate?"and "Is this the thing that I SHOULD do now?" It might seem like that I am a drama queen, but it is a huge burden off my shoulders!

In addition, I am telling to myself: "Take it easy" and "Things will work out".

Be happy, be positive, and enjoy every single moment.
This is my motto.
