Journey from Corporate to Motherhood!

My day no more starts with a rush for the office cab and no more presentation to make. I don’t think more about what’s cooking inside my boss’s head and no worries about getting my leaves approved. I don’t have performance matrix to fill and competency scores to prove my worth. I don’t care about why other employees get a better salary hike and not me despite of the hard work I put round the year. So does it mean that life has become simpler? Not indeed but still I’m loving it. . It’s been months since I left my job, but I have actually turned into a full time mother and trust me that’s a competitive job too.

There is an excitement when my baby smiles at my good morning gesture and how he rush to me when I extend my arms towards him. My day doesn’t start at 9, never ends at 6 but it’s in a continuing pace to fulfill desires, expectations and pampering of my little one.

Being a mother there are so many things to do and you remain occupied 24X7. Earlier I had other things to glorify my day but today if my baby has successfully completed his 3 meals, my achievement is done. My calendar is constantly booked with his oil massage, splendor bath, a healthy-meal preparation, a fun-filled stroller ride and series of lullabies to offer. Now I have to discover new ways to draw out his smile even when my back is paining and eyes are melting with sleep. I can’t show my frustration to him as he is too innocent to bear that. So I have to always present my brighter side to him. There has been a shortage of time always but there is no excuse that I can make today. And the most important thing above all, I had expectations from my previous life: monetary, social and physiological but with him – It’s just unconditional love !!

Motherhood, God’s Blessing!

When I hold my child, I know there are so many people who would love to be in my shoes. And I realise how truly blessed I am to be a mom.

Motherhood is so much more than those dirty diapers and exhaustion from a lack of sleep. Motherhood is the job – yes, the privilege – of shaping little hearts and minds. And even beyond that, motherhood is one of God’s greatest blessings.

My baby took me to the next level of life happiness. He has given me a closeness in my life I’ve never had before. I love the responsibility I have for this new life – it’s up to me and his dad, how to love him. It’s an unconditional love. I don’t need any reward. The love that has since filled my heart, the fullness that I experience in my life, is indescribable.

Motherhood is a blessing – no matter what the circumstances you currently face.

Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you’ve had a baby

That somebody doesn’t know that once you’re a mother, “Normal”, is history.

 

Jingle Bells..Jingle Bells!

Dear Santa Claus,

I dont know if you exist, but for me, I have grown up believing in you and though you cant reach me this Christmas as you are super busy, I will stay by my window to wave at you when I see your slay pass by the moon tonight 🙂

I just really want to thank you for the following:???????????????

For making me believe in You, that feeling reassures faith in me towards myself.

For making me realize the gift of giving, it’s not always about presents, but sometimes about the timeless things….like love, your time given to someone, the empathizing feeling and many more..

For dropping by time and making a visit many times in a year in the form of friends who give you hope, make you believe in yourself and give you the courage to move forward in life.

For just making me feel happy on this day..Christmas makes me happy!

If there’s anything I’d want/be, I’d like to be someone like you, someone who is a symbol of happiness, love, courage and humility..

Merry Christmas Everyone 🙂 Continue reading

Make Time For Quiet Moments

My life has been crazy lately… I’ve been experiencing feelings of disorientation. I’ve been desperately craving a few quiet moments..

Solitude-Woman-at-the-Beach

We all need quiet moments, don’t we? Some things are beyond our control, and I don’t want to be fazed by circumstances. I want to spare myself all the emotional burden and the inevitable guilt that follows. I want to put my anxiety to rest. For once, I want to stop thinking about the world. For once, I don’t want to care about people who think I have changed. I can’t be managing every relationship efficiently. I can’t be reserving a space in my heart for everyone I know. I don’t think I am forgetting old relationships because I have embraced a new one. What the heck, life isn’t about pleasing everybody! I am not going to stretch myself.

I want to sink into some quiet moments, and I don’t want the world to intrude. I want to settle down to quietness.

I want to meet myself and relax! 🙂

I love You. Really?

imagesCARMAKB3
When someone says ‘I love you’, you ask ‘really?’

But when someone says ‘ I hate you’, you don’t ask ‘really?’ One accepts it without question.

How true! What a profound observation!

What is it about the words ‘I love you’ that scares most people? Is it so hard to accept that one is loved? Has it seems almost impossible to believe that someone can love us? Is it that we think ‘oh-my-god’ what does he/she want now? Why is he/she saying ‘I love you’. Does he/she mean it?’

Why do we question (at least most of us) the veracity of these words and why don’t we just accept?

When said with sincerity and true depth, these three words are powerful indeed. They seal a bond. It is an unconditional acceptance of the other, with all their flaws. The magical thing about saying ‘ I love you’ is that it need not be between lovers, but just between two souls who’re deeply connected at some level–a mother and child,sisters,best friends.

The fact is that three simple words “I love you” when said, when you really mean them, have the power to uplift, to heal, to comfort, to calm and reassure. They are very powerful words indeed. All humans long to hear these words. They show an unconditional acceptance of the other person and create a powerful shield around their vulnerabilities.

If you hear these words often, you are blessed indeed as there are so many who crave to hear it but have no one who will say these words to them (Think about it). Of course, if these words are casually uttered and if you say it to all the people you meet, then they do cease to have any meaning at all.

But when said with all sincerity and when you truly mean it, a kind of magic happens which is hard to explain.

Don’t believe me? Try it!

And I am fortunate indeed to hear these words often from some special people in my life. I silently thank them and they go into my cup of blessings.

The World Will Suck Less If You Change Yourself!

You can’t change people or situations, you can only change how you react to them.

All your life you are going to meet people who will say hurtful things, do pathetic things (some that are unpardonable) and you will also find yourself in situations unpleasant and gross.You can’t change any of that because how people behave is not within your control.The only thing that you can control is your reaction to people and events.

We all think of changing the world but we hardly ever think of changing ourselves.

Change the way you look at things…

As they say – if you don’t like a thing, change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it. The world will suck a little less.
Sometimes you have to let go of everything you are clinging to and start over.

We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way, all the time. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can change is our attitude. We are in charge of our attitudes because life is probably 50% of what happens to us and 50% of how we react to it.

To quote Rumi: “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
