Hi there! I am just so glad you’re here. 🙂 By the way, I am Michelle, the blogger/writer behind this personal lifestyle and mommy blog – Nostalgic Momma.
I am a proud member of the Mommy Bloggers Philippines – a community of Pinay Mommies writing about life discoveries, parenting musings, inspirational stories, and really, anything under the sun!
I am in my mid-20s (yep, I got married at a young age, gave birth to my first son at a young age – yet no regrets! 😉 ) and I love my life (I really do)!
Why Nostalgic Momma, I heard you asked? Well, here’s a side story:
Long before, I only do Tumblr blogging. I was still Nostalgic Damsel back then. ‘Cause that pretty much sums up who I am.
Nostalgic. Reminiscent. Melancholic. Sentimental. Did I mention, emotional?
And I always feel like I am a Damsel in Distress. Hahaha! Hence, the reason behind Nostalgic Damsel. But I don’t do much of writing and sharing in my old Tumblr blog. I was just more of a re-blogger (I have forgotten the term in Tumblr). Posting photos of the things I love, the photos I find lovely and enticing. Posts or GIFs which has touched a part of my being and expresses what I feel at the moment. If you even scroll into my old Tumblr, you’ll maybe judge me as a hopeless romantic, self-absurd teenager back then. And I wouldn’t blame you for that. 😉
Anyway, I stopped Tumblr-ing when I got busy at work. Instead of writing posts and sharing some thoughts in my web diary, I was busy writing computer codes and pleasing my bosses, trying to impress them so I’ll get a decent salary adjustment each and every year. It went on for about 4 years after I graduated. It was a cycle. I was doing what I thought I would love doing but instead, has left me empty and longing for something I think I was missing.
When I think I already knew what it was that I am missing, I started blogging again. I started writing as the Nostalgic Momma. It turns out that I had to enter married life and motherhood first before I’ve had this one figured out. And I wasn’t a Damsel in Distress anymore. I am a Momma in Distress already. How’s that for a life transformation, huh? Hahaha!
Four years of being a Software Engineer, I had quit. I left the high-paying industry and chose to be a WAHM. Trust me, I’ve had enough reasons to do so and it was the best decision I’ve made in my life so far! I’ve never been this happy and confident in my life. 😉
Right now, I am a Virtual Professional (you may know more about what I do in The Passionate Virtual Professional – still a work-in-progress, though!) while I write about my musings on life and motherhood on the side. This is the life that I enjoy, to be honest. Maybe one thing is because I am also an introvert. Not that I don’t like people! I have friends, you know. It’s just that I am more energized and fueled when I get some alone time and with being a WAHM, I can definitely achieve it – every single day! Haha!
Anyway, please don’t interpret me as an anti-social because I am not. I just enjoy being at the comforts of my home, and I feel more comfortable expressing my thoughts through writing. And I feel I am at my best state being a wife and a momma as WAHM. Less stress in commuting and more time for the family. So WAHM life for the win! 🙂
I know I still have a lot to learn (as I am still young) and I think it’s great! Learning new things keep someone going and growing, right? It adds up spice and excitement in life. So join me in discovering new things, some of my parenting aha’s, life’s (mis)adventures and anything (which I think) is interesting! You’ll read here some random thoughts but I do hope you enjoy navigating life with me. And I would want to get to know you also so do not hesitate to get in touch with me (I don’t bite) if you’re feeling extra friendly and nice.
Talk to you soon! 😉
