Onwards to a new career....

As I now become a member of the unemployed, effective April 20 I retire from my copy writing job to help out the family as an au pair. Seriously, I will now be retired officially and will be taking care of the little ones at home so my sister can pursue her dreams. It is not really a hard decision for me because I know that the internet world will not leave me away from work. I have stayed at home full-time when I was taking care of my son. Though it was tiring and fulfilling, I felt that my brain was stagnating. So, getting ready for this new career, I decided to look for online jobs.

A Salute to my Father

When I decided to go my own way after college my father sent me a letter and a poem. And though it was hard for him to let go, the poems says it all.

On Children Kahlil Gibran Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday. You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
