Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow in the Life of Prerna Malik

I’m excited to introduce a new series we’ll be doing at Life Your Way, called “Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow in the Life of…” Each week I’ll post an interview with someone as they share how their past has shaped who they are today as well as who they hope to be in the future.
We’re starting with the Life Your Way contributors, but I’d love to include readers as well. If you’d like to participate, just send me an email at [email protected] and I’ll send you a questionnaire!

Today’s interview is with Prerna Malik of the Mom Writes:

1. Looking back on your childhood, what events do you think shaped who you are today?

A happy home, a mother who was loving but firm {and quite a clean freak}, and a father who worked very, very hard to provide for his daughters.

2. Were you always so productive and organized?

Unfortunately, no!  I was big on spending, credit cards, and shopping when I was younger and had just stepped into the corporate world. The lure of plastic took me into a bit of debt and it was when I met my to-be husband that I learned the importance of saving and budgeting.

As for organizing and being productive, again, that is something I started doing once I got married. I found that it helped me stay sane, manage a then-fulltime job, and keep a happy home.

Yeah, growing up, I was pretty much a go-with-flow kinda gal! But I was passionate about writing then too!

3. How would you describe yourself today?

I’m at a very happy place in my life today. I have an adorable daughter, I’m learning SO many new things about being a mom, a blogger/writer and a homemaker, all while spending time with the most loving  and patient man in the world!

4. What do you most love about your life?

The fact that I can do what I love the most – writing while staying at home and being with my family. You know, “have my cake and eat it too!”

5. What would other people be surprised to know about you?

There isn’t much, but yes, I totally suck at packing a suitcase. I love to travel but would so NOT enjoy moving from place to place. I need a base. And yes, I am an extrovert who takes her time to know people.

6. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?

Wow. Umm, I’d like to have written a book. Moved into our own home. Traveled to Europe and the US. Meet in real life with some of the awesome bloggers who’ve rocked my world as a work-at-home mom.

7. What legacy do you hope to leave behind?

I want my daughter to grow up with a deep love for family, a respect for hard work, and the desire and drive to pursue her passions.
