It wasn’t easy. Some days, working was tiring and exhausting, and my feet were sore.

Feeling like there is no time for anyone. On some days, I felt like giving up, but then I remembered my end goal. My kids attended daycare or after-school care full-time.

Friends of mine would say why have kids? If you can’t raise your kids, you are getting other people to do it for you. Unfortunately, you don’t choose that someone has to look after your kids.

My heart broke as an older mum, and still wasn’t able to look after my kids, and I needed to work full time. This was not the life of my dreams.

People thought I was working to get away from my family, but no, I was doing it to provide for them. But it doesn’t have to be forever.

Remember to believe in making the best of what you got, and always remember to make the finest of what you have.
