I started blogging with two purpose.
One to reach more people and spread health awareness
Two :to rediscover my self from the mess I was becoming.It was a match made in heaven.When God takes away something he gives much more back,Being a mommy bound me physically and emotionally to my daughter .But it also helped my mind fly.
Everything I see through her eyes is fresh and new,
Seeing her never giving up ,reinforces my belief in the human spirit.
So how do I keep the woman in me alive.
Listen carefully .
This is top secret .
But I am sharing with you today.
You choose well .Everything!
Choose your partner with care.I have known my hubby for 17 years .He has been my best friend for 15 years and husband for 9 .A very smart friend told me once
Amrita if not for Abhijit ,there’s few who can manage you?
Now tell me which grown woman wants to be managed?No one but you need a partner who ”gets you”!Men and women are two sides of this beautiful world.The happiest family is a balanced one
“The opposite of happiness isn’t sadness – it’s boredom” – Tim Ferris
That’s something I believe too.Little girls and women all want to have fun .When I became a mommy it was the beginning of the most magical adventure.A second chance of enjoying a carefree childhood .But it did mean cutting those coffee dates off the calendar.It also meant juggling a lot.While keeping the balls up the focus was so much on keeping them up, than on remembering what they meant to me.
As a mom I am the heart and soul of our home.Travelling from one city to another working and taking care of everything makes spring cleaning the soul least important .But last year something happened. I went through a lot of downs to realize ,I should not waste one second regretting .The only thing I should do, is to say thank you and focus inside.Whats happening inside me as a woman, keeps me happy as a wife ,mom ,doctor!
As a very wise friend Deepa said
When things get rough ,take a step back.
That’s exactly what I did.Which battle is worth fighting for I realized as a woman I needed to get my act together .I have always been social .But as time passes I am selectively social.Life is too short to waste on things and people who don’t appreciate you .Its okay to have differing opinions.Agreeing to disagree and still being friends is a fine art.
As a woman I have realized I need to shop occasionally for pretty stuff to keep me happy.I even window shop online.The best part no one looks at you strangely.Worst part ,you get upteen mails from the ecommerce site .
Chatting with my girl friends over the phone at least once a week is a must.Old fiends are there for a reason,They knew you when you were still dreaming.You became friends just because you liked each other.With passing time you outgrow some ,but not all.Its a fact of life that you will only be in touch with people who are in the same place as you are.Its great to not have to wear a mask and just be me
So is my nonstop chatting with support system online.We gravitate toward people who have similar ethics and dreams.Making new friends and catching up with old ones are an integral part of my happy me.
Looking good and feeling good go hand in hand.Its important you look at the mirror every morning and say you look beautiful and believe it.Until you believe no one else will.
I enjoy dressing up .My daughter looks apprehensive when I tell her I am wearing a saree.She thinks it makes us late for parties!Children they will think the strangest things.
I never stop self care.This part of the world has limited access to beauty parlour ,The ones there are I am afraid to step into.But I definitely take time to oil my hair and use the kitchen stuff to take good care for my skin and hair.Healthy body and mind is a beautiful me .That’s why I focus on eating healthy,exercising and practicing mindfulness my way.
On days when I feel sad for unknown reasons I put on lipstick at home while cooking,I feel like in a KJO movie.It helps.
I read to keep my brain happy .When I started reading I found a lifelong friend in my books.Whenever I go on book buying sprees,that’s when I remember the childhood experiences .I just need my rocking chair my bottle of water and a good book.!Heaven on earth!
I love exploring the creative side of me which comes from keeping the woman in me alive .I insist on enjoying time with my husband everyday. Even if it’s 2 hours at night after baby sleeps.
I support women .That’s why I started the mompreneurs blogging journey and #MondayMommyMoments.Helping other women ,is the best way to thank God everyday for making me a woman.How else could I have it all?
