“Multi-Tasking Mom” A Comprehension on my Master Status in the Society

Published 10 May 2017

The daily life experiences that every individual in this world comes across with contribute to the development of the self. These experiences do not only come in a single strand nor pattern. Quite on the contrary, what makes these experiences contributive to the welfare of humanity is because these encounters come in various forms and in differing content. A well-rounded personality, then, can be achieved, though strictly limited, to the variety in the experiences that individuals get to have in their lives. What I am today is a manifestation of the grandeur that I have attained—but I believe that there are still more that I must learn.

In the life that I live in, there is a huge possibility that disposition that I possess in life has an exact opposite in the world. Consequently, I believe in the connotation that the world is inhabited with ‘clannish’ beings who consider other people as training grounds or “subjects of discussion.” In a lager perspective of this, sociological implications are yet to be unfolded in the arena of understanding human behavior—the role that I take in this life and the role I play while interacting with the people I am connected with is a manifestation that I am not living on an isolated castle, hence, there are several forms of expectations and standards which I must live through to be able to thoroughly comprehend my purpose—yet along my master status.

I am stuck on a realization that sociology is a field of study which is married to me since the day that I noticed how big the world is and the wonders that it offers. In each day that pass through the suburbs of the indifferent—in my own opinion at least—and on the street of coerced bliss, I carefully take into account that the disposition that I have—either inherited or acquired would mean much on how I shall be able to live. Being a single parent of two intellectual boys, I see to it that the so-called patriarchal view on parenthood is eradicated on the path that I take. Conceivably, this form of strength that I presume to be acquired—since the day that I faced diverse challenges in life far beyond those experienced by mothers—made me deem on the idea that I need to play my role in the society like a computer with multi-tasking capabilities.

I live in a stream where opportunities possess no limits and with it, it helps shape up my disposition in life—weak people who are scared to take risks are those who live in the shadows—by working full time, enrolling in a tough course and still managing to allot time for my kids makes me a person flexible enough to live a life even in the trickiest and complex schema of the situation. Most of my friends would often ask me how I get to do all those chores (even ventured on physical activities and the exhilarating world of cheerleading) and fulfill my responsibilities and still have time for the people outside the family circle. But it all boils down to one simple concept—so as to amaze other people, one must be able to fill up the gaps in one’s life—I always keep in mind that my life need not to focus on one aspect alone, to be able to grow and to establish a reputation outlying the rage of total disgust. It is all about being accepted.

In essence, as much as I strongly believe in the idea that experiences shape the personality of a person in many different ways, these experiences can serve as a meaningful chapter in our lives as much as they have been significant to on my part. As far as my memory would not fail me, I do attest to the idea that experiences teach the individual person about being a steward of the gifts and talents that the self possesses. By having the full knowledge that these experiences contribute in a large part in the molding of the ability of the individual in bringing forth a rather full control or, at least, a strong grasp on one’s abilities to his or her advantage, their meanings would be far clear enough. My master status would be a “Multi-Tasking Mom”—odd as it may seem, I really think that the more I carry heavier burdens and confrontations in life, the more I am triggered to be the best not only for myself, but for the people I love as well.
