On July of 2009, this blog was created as a venue for a full-time nanay to capture and immortalize online her learnings, struggles, successes, even misfortunes as she transcends motherhood, parenthood, wifehood, and personhood—mostly for her own enjoyment and partly for sharing to those who may be in a similar state.
After more than a year, nanayisms has been transformed into a completely different animal from what it was birthed as. From a mere documentation of experiences, it has become a repository of information I frequently go back to as I realize there are synonymous approaches to dealing with extremely different situations. It has become a learning tool where I learn as I write, as I think of things to write about, and as I read and re-read what I have already written. At times, I could not help but for it to become an outlet for occasional rants—disappointments that are often few and far between—but mostly, it functions as my personal wall of fame where I hammer in memoirs of my everyday pleasures and achievements. It has become a constant source of inspiration, for myself and my readers as well, as we discover newness and beauty in the ordinaries of life.
I am in constant awe at how random musings become thought-provoking paving the way for more ideas, insights, nanayisms.
Please join me as I revel in this awesomeness that being a mother, wife, daughter, friend, the list goes on… can offer.
