Being Woman !!!

poem

How is it to be a woman???

Womanhood is a mystery box,

Coz we don’t know what our hormones planning for!!!

 

One day we might feel at the top of the world,

And the next moment an air of emptiness throws a burning flare!!

Every other day in life, similar questions pop up:

Why we have these monthly pains,

Why we leave our parents place?

Why we undergo nine months insomnia,

Which doesn’t seem to stop right there!

Why we work like a clock,

And people still dare raise their eyebrows wanting for more!!

But Hey !! Wait…. Before you have loads of questions flowing in your head,

Open your eyes and see inside,

You are beautiful, you are strong,

That’s why you get so much to work upon.

You can work like a clock,

But don’t forget, clock smiles too 🙂 

Others have strong mind,

You are the one blessed with strong hearts,

You know when to hold and when to let it go,

That’s the magic you own!!!

It is okay if the world is not getting you,

The best gift you can give to yourself is: Understand yourself,

Listen to your body, listen to your heart,

Take a pause when they want.

Do for others, but don’t forget yourself,

Because you are the reason behind many smiles,

You are reason for many happy homes,

You are the reason for many growing workplaces!

And Again, don’t forget yourself,

Listen to your body, listen to your heart,

Take a pause when they want!!!

To Dear Mommy and Daddy: Poem With Love

Dear Mommy and Daddy,

I am a part of you,

But I am not YOU.

Then who am I???

I am a little chrysalis,

Exploring and growing.

Don’t give me so much comfort,

That I forget my wings,

Don’t push things so hard,

That my wings get crush.

Be there in spirit and in real too,

And see me flying high.

I might not become the person of your dreams,

But with you on my side, I can one day become a man of my dreams….

Your’s loving Kiddo

Monster Bash…Boom Boom Turned 5!!!

A glimpse fifth birthday party of my son…

I have been excitedly waiting for this day.Yes for my lil monster to turn 5!! And of course I had some plans for him and really really wanted that things fall in place.For any get together big or small, a proper planning is must.So a lot did went in for this too.From normal stuff like venue, food,decoration,cake,return gifts etc to that last kick of uniqueness. Till now on all his birthdays I always wanted to have something unique for kids, which they can really enjoy. So birthday games was a big no no for me.Then what…there were loads of ideas like pottery, magic show , dance session, painting.etc. But I am happy that I finalised Djembe Session (drum activity) organized by Taal Inc. These guys were just fantabulous at their work.This 45 minute session did exactly what I wanted….kids occupied with learning something new while enjoying at the same time and  grown ups getting time for chit chat.

Then it was time for the cake cutting….yummy cake made by a friend and entrepreneur Navpreet (Cake Cloud).

As always the return gift included a plant with some brain teasing puzzles this time.

All in all it was just a kind of party that I was looking for. And I really want to mention that after the party my lil one went to his Dad gave him a cuddle and said “Thank You Papa” . Also he said to me “Mumma mujhe bahut achha laga mere birthday per” (Mom I really felt good on my birthday) and “Tum bahut pyari ma ho ” (You are a sweet Mom) 🙂 .And I must say those two sentences have made everything worth it…just loved listening it…..

A special note of Thanks to my wonderful family and friends who just made the evening all the more beautiful with their presence.

And yeah how can i forget this poem written by me and given as a return gift…

Daily Challenge:Expert

It all started with simple desire to know how to tie my shoelace properly.That was a day when I thought if I could do this perfectly then that’s it!!! I think I must have been somewhat 6 or 7 that time.

But wait….no no no… I was so wrong….this cycle has never stopped.Each and every day I want to do something new… try my hands on something afresh.And as soon as I am able to do it in a decent manner my interest get lost.I belong to a category where I don’t wish to be an Expert.Yes I want to know many things but don’t want to master any.And I am happy with that:)

Happy to be Jack of All and Master of none….It brings flavor and colors to my life!!!

Mental Support vs Financial Support for the child

Parent’s mental support to a child is more important than financial support:

Every generation has its own challenges and luxuries.Many of us must have heard stuff like “We never paid so much attention to our kids and see they are still doing well” or “You are being too possessive for your child” or something else on similar line. But it’s time to understand that things now are lot different than what it used to be when we were growing up.And though changes are there in every generation, but this time the gap is much more due to many external factors and kind of exposure every one has.So some reasons why you should be there for your kid more now:

  1. No siblings: if you follow DIOK, ensure you fill this missing piece of sibling as much as you can.
  2. Confidence: Feeling and knowing that you are around makes the child confident.
  3. Needs vs Demand vs Time: With the vast exposure to technology there is no end to need and demand. Need is not limited to food, water and shelter. Demands too have no ending. But Time surely has. Do give it at the right time.
  4. With growing number of cases around depression and extreme behavior it is important that we make sure there is no lack of mental support in initial years. This will definitely help them to cope up in life.

Saying this, the need of hour has changed in raising a child and role of parent has grown many folds. So hold your little one’s hand and let him explore the world by himself.

Happy Parenting!!
