Welcome to allenseto.com. I decided to start blogging shortly after the birth of my son Marcus. And that is when I made a bit of a life shifting decision, for both myself and my family, to take parental leave from my engineering job.
The purpose of the blog is not to document my life as a stay-at-home father, helping my wife Siu in whatever way I can, as we raise our son. Instead, the birth of our son has given me a much different perspective on what I see as important in life. And I hope that this new perspective is what becomes the focal idea that comes across in my writing.
That’s not to say that I won’t touch on or discuss the many joys and challenges of being at home with my family, but I really hope that I can articulate well what my thoughts and outlooks on life are and how they may have changed. I want to use writing as a tool in striving to improve myself a little bit at a time. And maybe by getting some of these thoughts down and sharing them in this form might inspire, motivate, and support others in improving as well.
Thanks for taking the time to visit. I hope you enjoy!
