Just Jot It January 13th – Sacrifice

Sacrifice for me is giving up something for the sake of other considerations. I’d say I’ve sacrificed my career for the sake of my family. I’ve got a degree in Chemistry in the Philippines but I deliberately not continue in this line when we moved to Germany. Him Indoors has got a good job and I thought I’d give him all the support he needs to succeed in his career. And when HRH the son was born two years later, I decided to look after him full time for the first ten years of his life. Thus, I concentrated on being a good wife and a mother. I enjoyed my role, actually. I didn’t really think of it as a sacrifice, instead just gave them the top priority of my life. In fact, it was the best decision of my life. When HRH the son was ten, I started thinking of slowly going back to work. I did some training, carried on with my education and now treats my job as my hobby. I love my life! Have a lovely day everyone!

  1. These are lovely pictures. It’s always great when one puts a pause on their career to raise their kids begrudgingly, and then go back into it and are still happy. You have a wonderful family.

  2. This is a lovely, positive post. For some people giving up their career to raise a family is something they consider to be a sacrifice. It is wonderful that you enjoyed raising your son, and now restarting your career, I think it is a case of getting priorities right and making the best of what we have 🙂
