I am not fit to be her mom. She runs too fast and I’m too slow.

Seeing dots @rowdtla. An old friend in town from Hong Kong and I took her to some of my favorite places in downtown (more on my story).

I shared on my insta-story this morning, “Stories I Told Myself” and “Stories I Am Learning To Tell Myself”. I’m hard on myself, even when good things are happening I’d prepare myself for failure and almost never allow myself to be too happy. But lately I’m so determined to change my mindset. So few weeks ago when I got invited to enjoy an (amazing) omakase meal I had to be conscious of my negative thoughts - “don’t know why they invited me, I’m not even a big food blogger” or “my food photos aren’t even good”. I had them, but I was able to quickly change my mindset by having gratitude and just enjoy every single bite. I must look like a crazy woman inside my head, going back and forth of being negative then positive then negative and positive. 😅 Thank you, @qsushila, for a memorable meal. I was very present for every bite and did not waste Chef Hiro’s art. 🙏🏼✨

I have to remind myself daily not to get into the “victim” mode and ask the right question instead: Am I doing things that are helping me reach my full potential? I honestly don’t know what’s my potential or my purpose. I suppose that changes as we flip to a new life chapter each time. Taking it one day at a time - maybe go see some arts today, watch my baby girl climb to the top of the dining table and then look through old magazines to research for an upcoming photo + styling shoot.

At the age of 43 (44 in few short weeks!), I’m just now getting obsessed with having a healthy relationship with my money. I don’t want to be a consumer anymore. I deleted all the convenient shopping apps today, like Amazon, EBay, Etsy, Postmates... However, I enjoy food too much to stop eating out. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Eating really good pasta @_the_mighty_ as we speak. I guess at least I don’t feel guilty about it, it’s one of those things that make me happy. Would love to hear about your relationship with money, especially those whom are freelancers! #bonnietsanglaeats

Made lunch for baby, fed her, then made lunch for the older one, did dishes, cleaned the kitchen, put baby to nap and now in the office getting some more work done. Just realized that I haven’t ate. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Talked to several moms in the past couple of weeks and we are all so similar in the sense that we give a lot. Not saying dads don’t give, but they certainly know how to preserve their energy (like staying in the bathroom for a very long time or nap whenever they can 😅). Whereas moms tend to take care of everyone first before herself. She’s always the one that leave the house with family without a shower because there isn’t enough time or she can’t nap because there’s laundry to do and toys to put away. I think no one can multi-task as good as moms. 💪🏼 // #bonnietsangstudio

Happy Anniversary to us, @withmartin! We met 3 years ago and got engaged 2 years ago. I really thought I would just be on my own forever - not that I was being negative, but I didn’t see the need to be with someone. Then he came along, who doesn’t give up on me no matter how much I tried to sabotage our happiness (til this day, I still subconsciously turn a happy moment into an argument). Sometimes I think he’s crazy to be with someone weird like me, but I love him for that. I love you! 😘
