Standing up for myself.

So today I did something, which probably didn’t go down too well with someone and yet it made me feel better. All my life I’ve been a people pleaser, I try my best to be as accommodating as possible and see to that the other person is not hurt. What have I got in return?…

I’ve improved

In my patience levels. Becoming a mother does that to you. All the sleepless nights, the holding and rocking, putting down the child, to be woken up again in another 5 min, helps you improve. 🙂 Initially, I used to get worked up so easily about things I felt I could not deal with. However,…

I’m obsessed

I had written about my obsession long back – here. That is still probably my biggest obsession. But having a kid, makes a lot of difference. You have other pressing needs that your mind isn’t so obsessed about the kitchen platform. Add to it, now with a kid, the whole house is messy! So fretting…

Gundu updates..

I was reading my journal entries from a year back and realized I was such a harried mom at that point of time. The beauty of it all is, that I hardly remember any of that agony now. Time is such a healer. During those days, I always used to wonder, how on earth people…

It is strange how every day looks the same when you look from afar. Doing the mundane jobs that every day is filled with. What you need to do is look close. Close, because there will be so many moments of joy and gratitude that you will miss out otherwise. I am blessed with a…

A Birthday Letter To My Son

Dear Chintu, I was reading an article on tinybuddha about how it is the little things that actually matter in life. All this while I knew that I wanted to write down something for your first birthday, maybe a letter, a blog post or just a journal entry, which I may show you some day…

Catch up post!

It’s been a year since I am on leave. The time to get back to work is close, I report next Monday. I feel so bad when I think of being 8+ hours away from my baby. It is so hard for moms. They have to choose between their career and being a mother. If…

On my mind

I wish it was possible to peek just a little into the future, you know, just to know that things will turn out fine, unlike how I worry. I have always been someone who worries a lot. Never known to have been calm and clear-headed. Things turn out absolutely fine, many times when I have…

Gundu updates

I sit here watching my baby finally settle into sleep after more than an hour. His forehead is stinging with fever. I was wondering if I have the strength to deal with this. I get so worried. That’s when I recollected my pregnancy days and the troubles I went through till I had my baby…
