One day all to my self is what I always dream about.

My First Fun activity would be to hit the nearest aerobics/zumba class. I remember myself enjoying in my aerobics which was years before. Now, seriously I don’t know how to take time out for that ( will not say I don’t have time).

My next stop of fun activity is to pamper myself in a spa for few hours with no calls in between to remind me of commitments. I have never been to spa just because of the simple reason that I have no escape route from my kids.

Then I will call my friend, book our favorite movie and eat out leisurely. Wow I really want this to happen . I have not done it in years.

My last fun activity is, I have with me a cute story( sequel to my previous short story “Chasing my dream). For this I need time just for myself with no commitments.

I thought, I will have so much to do, if I have time for myself. But my fun activity is not so unreal. May be little bit of reprogramming my daily schedule will help me to do my fun activity.

Anyways Thank You for taking me into a day just for myself.

LOVE YOURSELF TO LOVE YOUR KIDS

Image

 

My friend gifted me this book “Family wisdom” by Robin Sharma. I always thought these inspirational self help books are not for me but for the broken ones. But I was totally bowled over at the end of it.

It made me to review my life and to relive it in a sensible way. Best thought/quote of the book I felt is ” YOU HAVE TO LOVE YOURSELF TO LOVE YOUR KIDS”. It really shook me from inside and I actually found out that I haven’t loved me enough.

In the sense, I have not found who I am, what I want from life, when I want I what and where I want to see myself. Without knowing the answers for any of these questions, how will I be able to love and groom my kids. I have to identify myself before telling my kids to IDENTIFY.

Image

I thought MOTHERING is more about handling kids but I was wrong. I never know that my BODY AND SOUL need to be treated and groomed with much more respectful way.  I never know that I have to treat my body as a temple and my soul needs more space, more air, more peace.

You have to be role model in all the aspects for our kids. Before asking your kids to read, we have to be an avid reader. Before asking your kids to go out for play in the park, we have to take a walk or hit the nearest gym .

I know, there are lot more things to do to love our self. I want to know how you love or pamper yourself.

This book is an Eye Opener for me. I know we all have such books, incidents, people who made us to rethink our life. I like to know ,Who they are? Feel free to share it with me.

I cherished but now its perished

Image

When I look back my past, there are many tiny cute things, which I cherished but today for my kids its almost perished.

In the past, life was pretty simple to live in , reason being ,I grew up in a very simple less self-centered society. I wasn’t surrounded by gadgets but rather surrounded by human species.

I expressed my emotions to my distant friend through letters. I remember writings pages to tell my friends how I miss them. I cherished writing.But now we just express it all through emoticons. Gone are the days where we used to wait for the postman to deliver us Greeting cards, letters. We now just pray for more battery life for our gadgets.

Image

 

Back from school, we used to play in the near by park with our friends. I hate to be at home. But now, things have changed, I see kids happier playing with i-pad rather than playing in the park. Though they learn so much from gadgets still they are missing  the simple human touch. I cherished playing with my friends.

I used to wait for vacations to come, for the simple fact ,want to visit my cousins place and to have a blast with them. But today most of the kids are not aware of their cousins.

I cherished enjoying all the festivals with my grandparents in their own traditional home and its traditional way. But now, kids are happy seeing their grandparents in Skype.

Image

I miss my society. I grew up with more simple people with more human values and less selfishness. But now. I am confused with the people around. Its difficult to raise kids with duplicitous society.

I shouldn’t forget the truth that present generation kids are extremely smart , unique in their own way and talented. But I being still caught up with traditional thoughts, felt tiny sweet things are missing for my kids.

If you feel anything missed out from your childhood days, you are free to share it with me.

Keep Cherishing and keep blogging.

My dream job would be an author, who has recently published a self help book on parenting. As a homemaker, I don’t like to leave my kids behind , to earn money for my living.

But it doesn’t mean I don’t like earning money. I want to publish novels and make money out of it. Wow.. This dream of mine is making me feel to make it true. My hobby , my passion, my stress buster is writing and turning into a commercial way is mind blowing dream.

I wish I pray that my dream come true very soon.

Life without friendship is a woe

Image

I had a blissful life with friends hanging around with them all the time.

Though I have a beautiful family , still I need time for myself. Myself in the sense, I don’t like spending time alone in a room. I meant suspending myself with them in the park ,having a chit chat over a cup of coffee and even pouring out myself ( during bad phase of life).

During those beautiful days, I never felt the need to write about them. Oops…. I even forgot to thank them for being in life as a pillar of my strength.

Here I am in a new place , without friends, nobody to talk to , nobody to hold me tight when I am low. I tried with utmost heart to make new friends.
But I failed in them. With two years of my stay here, what I have learnt, is that I took many things for granted.
I didn’t realise the value of friends,good neighbours and simple happy life.

I always longed for things which are not around but never once thanked for the people who were with me.
I don’t want to make the same mistake here. I have found a new friend ,who I am very sure ,will be with me throughout my life “books”.
I cultivated this habit of Reading any random novels. This really changed my outlook of life. Books made me to think broader in life.

So here I am , thanking each and everyone of you, who stood by me ,for  whatever crap I am.
Love you all guys.

Humanity in kids

Image

It was a very breezy evening .I took my kids to my friend’s place for a cup of tea and also for a chit chat . After serving us with tea and cakes, she offered my kids Chocolates ( her sister got it for from Chicago). My girls took the chocolates with total kiddy excitement and started unwrapping it.

The moment she tasted her first bite, my elder daughter said ” mom !! this doesn’t taste good”. I checked up the taste then found out to have weird smell. Later, found that the whole box of chocolates got expired months before.

I told my kids not to have it, though initially they were little disappointed, but later accepted for the fact that their stomach may get upset if they have it.

When I was about to throw it in the dustbin , friend of mine told me not to throw it. I got shocked . I asked what for your are saving it? She said I give it my maid and she don’t mind taking it .

My elder daughter said” aunty!! she also has the stomach like us, how come hers will not get upset”. It was like a slap on her face.

I was very happy for the fact that I have groomed my daughter with little bit of human qualities.

Friends, lets start disciplining our self before grooming our kids.

All the best in grooming and happy blogging.

Wow. I really wish to get these three wishes in my life for real. I will make it short and sweet.

My first wish, would be, to have ‘contended and happy life’. The word contended is a wholesome word, where we can make many inferences for it. But I meant, to have a  simple, basic life and want to enjoy everyday of my life, not to worry too much about future.

My second wish, I would like my patience and tolerance level to go up , when I am with my kids. Though I am trying every day to match up with them but always got lost in between my battle.

My last wish is to pursue my writing to next level. Writing is something which I found out recently as my passion . I want to improve it and take it further.

 The thought of getting a chance for, Do-over your decision made before, is welcoming. I had a deep thinking within myself, then realized, there are many things which I would liked it to happen in a different way.  

But, few things in life happen for a cause, which we feel in future. For that moment ,may be , we feel “I shouldn’t have done in that way” but later that decision of yours was worth it.

This may sound philosophical, many bad decisions of mine taught me million good things in my life. We learn through our mistakes.

Accept your life as it comes and keep blogging.
