Motherhood Exposed

Motherhood exposed is an interesting theme this month .I like children. Before I became a mom I thought I would be the perfect role model to prevent this from happening to my child .

But guess what?

Motherhood is my biggest challenge .

It’s a challenge for self improvement when you don’t particularly want to improve.

It’s a challenge for discipline when you are tired .

It’s a challenge for tongue control when you just want to lash out .

It’s a challenge for what you want over what the little human needs .

It’s a challenge to remodel your dreams and aspirations so that motherhood and the life you have built up, dance together .

It’s a challenge to keep the romance alive in the marriage,when all you want to do is sleep .

It’s a challenge to travel to exotic locations because, what will baby eat ?

It’s a challenge to potty train, as no one taught this when you were in school ,college or anywhere for that matter!

It’s a challenge to feed  all the time. Too little, too much, right food and wrong food. Brain food and those improving EQ.

It’s a challenge to watch Shinchan on a loop .

It’s a challenge to find the right friends your child can hang out with (read impossible )

It’s a challenge to stop worrying even when they are 40 years old .

But Motherhood is a package deal .

With all the above,the single thing which makes it all worth it,is the LOVE .

Pure unadulterated love,  that the baby exudes every moment of every day .

The innocent smile ,the tear filled eyes when you leave home for work.

In a world full of masks and half hearted relationships, motherhood wins the prize .

Each time .

Every time.

So it’s okay.

If you are not perfect .

It’s okay if you need a break .

It’s okay if you are not doing everything the supermom next door is doing .

It’s okay if you don’t make all your meals from scratch .

It’s okay if you couldn’t breastfeed .

It’s okay if you have to work .

It’s okay if you give up your career because you want to stay with your kids .

It’s okay whatever you decide .

Because you are the best mommy that your child can have .

Whatever you or don’t do will be a signal for them to learn and do more .

Motherhood is a fun adventure. Disney world and monster world together .

Your time is limited 

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Favourite quote this week

Nature is inspiring .If you don’t believe me read this quote .

“Not too long ago thousands spent their lives as recluses to find spiritual vision in the solitude of nature. Modern man need not become a hermit to achieve this goal, for it is neither ecstasy nor world-estranged mysticism his era demands, but a balance between quantitative and qualitative reality. Modern man, with his reduced capacity for intuitive perception, is unlikely to benefit from the contemplative life of a hermit in the wilderness. But what he can do is to give undivided attention, at times, to a natural phenomenon, observing it in detail, and recalling all the scientific facts about it he may remember. Gradually, however, he must silence his thoughts and, for moments at least, forget all his personal cares and desires, until nothing remains in his soul but awe for the miracle before him. Such efforts are like journeys beyond the boundaries of narrow self-love and, although the process of intuitive awakening is laborious and slow, its rewards are noticeable from the very first. If pursued through the course of years, something will begin to stir in the human soul, a sense of kinship with the forces of life consciousness which rule the world of plants and animals, and with the powers which determine the laws of matter. While analytical intellect may well be called the most precious fruit of the Modern Age, it must not be allowed to rule supreme in matters of cognition. If science is to bring happiness and real progress to the world, it needs the warmth of man’s heart just as much as the cold inquisitiveness of his brain.”
