Motherhood a thing to be proud of!
Created by Vandana Prakash Updated on Jul 10, 2020
Whenever you feel sad or depressed, remember the face of your parents and remind yourself that there are these 2 people on earth who want you to be happy at any cost. Stay happy, stay motivated!
This one is for you Ma. Motherhood changed me a lot. Every day I find Riaan is trying to teach me something I never knew. The biggest lesson my son has taught me is to respect myself. Nowadays, I am super happy, positive and so much relaxed. It is definitely not because my son has stopped troubling me. On the contrary, he is turning into a drama king day by day. And well, it’s not even that I am in love again, one mistake is enough for this lifetime. Jokes apart, I am telling you the secret. :)
I used to get upset over tiny things. I kept on raising my expectations from people who hardly cared for me and used to get affected by people’s judgments on mistakes that I may have unintentionally made. I allowed folks to disrespect me and this affected my confidence.
Where does my happiness lie?
Well, in the past couple of years, something has changed. My son, Riaan taught me where I was wrong. You all know how after becoming a mom, most of us women stop living for ourselves. You cry if your child is in pain, you smile when your tiny tots smile. Even the pickiest eaters, start cooking and eating healthy to ensure their little ones get the appropriate nutrition. A mother’s heart is a strange yet beautiful thing. You keep on thinking day and night about your child
However, amongst all this love care and concern, you end up losing a bit of yourself at times. You stress over every little thing, stop caring about yourself and at times our sole identity becomes that of a mother. It is truly a beautiful thing and it is not easy to let a piece of your heart walk around, without dripping with concern and worry for them. However, if in this motherhood journey you find yourself losing a sense of self, just remember that you are also important and the people who love you mot in the world i.e. your parents, find their happiness in yours. Just as you always want your child to be happy, so do your parents. Your worry lines and frowns affect them the most. Your loss of sense of self will affect them the most.
Things are changing
The day I realized this, I stopped stressing over everything and found a renewed perspective. I started my journey of self-discovery and self-love. As a child, I used to dream of lots of things I wanted to do for my mom, like buying her a new car, taking her on a vacation and so much more. Unfortunately, life has taken me on a roller coaster ride and I could not do all that, but as a mother I realized, my mom never wanted any of that. All she cared about was my happiness and well being. The most precious gift she wanted from me is a smile on my face.
I owe this life to u maa and now I take care of myself so that you can be relaxed. I stay happy so that u can be happy and I stopped allowing people to be disrespectful to me as this would ultimately be an insult to you. Maybe I was never a great daughter but I promise I would be a happy, independent soul forever and I know you wanted to see me like this.
Straighten your crown
For every one of you who is upset today, facing taunts and losing yourself in stress and tears, please stop this immediately. You are in a way insulting your mom. Be happy, stay healthy and take care of yourself. Stop being a "Tyag ki Murti" as you are a princess of your parents, so straighten your crown, hold your head high and keep moving forward. Give your parents a gift today, the gift of happiness in your life and that too created by yourself. Keep smiling

I love being a mom because of the hugs, the giggles, and the grins. When my kid is happy, so am I. She amaze me every day with her new words and discoveries. She taught me to be more patient, more loving and much more appreciative of every moment we have together as a family. " - Veroncia Segura Author
