Hey Girls, Or Hey Moms! Do you ever wonder what you like to be seen as. Would you like if I met you and remembered you as a very caring loving mother or would you love it if I remembered you as a charming girl (thatâs hiding in you) whom I met when I saw that girl in your smileâ¦â¦â¦â¦â¦â¦Whatever I remember you as, what matters is what you want to be remembered as, and you have all the power to create my vision for you!
I am here to create my vision for you as a GIRL in a MOM and tell you ways you can keep the âGirl in youâ alive. I know I want to be seen as a GIRL in a MOM! And I am undoubtful of this thing that all of you want to be seen as girls too! I donât deny that being seen as a Mom is great, it is, in fact, something we are proud of, but well well, âGirl Sounds Greatâ, Isnât it?
I am a mom to a 13 month very adorable son, and I am a daughter of a very handsome ever young Dad. I never wish to forget that I am a girl, who became a mother and my formula is here for you ð
- Never forget you are someoneâs princess- someoneâs daughter.
I am a daughter first and mom next! My duties as a wife, my responsibilities as a mom and my job as a home maker does not let me think of myself just as a MOMâ¦ When I play with my kids, I think of myself playing with my mom as a child, which brings back the joy of childhood. I have lived same moments with my mom, the moments that my kid is living with me â this thought is so much enough to feed your soul! Trust me. I teach him colors that my mother taught me. I teach him walking, singing, talking and dancing- everything keeping in mind that all I am doing now is what my mom did to me.
2. Listen to Music that is hitting million views – Be up and ready to tap your feet on them
Listen to what your ears love to hear- But also make sure listen to what is being played everywhere and anywhere! I do it, this makes it so much easier to go anywhere, any club or even any salon (salons play the latest of the songs- agree?), without feeling out of the space or out dated. But think, you might like âPiya Basanti re kahe sataaye aajaâ but listen to âCome on, come on, turn the radio on. It’s Saturday and it won’t be longâ. When you will see your kidsâ friends tap there feet on a song, do it with them and BE A GIRL FOREVER.
3. Go to play in the park, instead of taking your kid to play.
Do you remember when did you actually play? My formula- rather just watching your kids play, indulge in the game and dive into it like no ones watching. Go for it. What I do? I donât loose intentionally to let my kid win, sometimes I just win to win! This win wins me a game spirit and a smile of my school days.
4. A tonic of me time- A movie alone or a drive- not a bad idea!
Trust me on this one and give a try – Is it really so hard to do what you love once a month or once a week (or once a day :P)? After all its my life, and doing what I love, is not something too much I am asking for. It can be a glass of wine alone, a movie alone, a series on your laptop, or a drive alone. This will not only give you pleasure, but also, give time to your soul something that it deserves the most, a tonic of me time. You will discover you are a girl at heart and you will love it.
5. Call your Mom and tell her what you ate (not what you cooked), what you achieved and things not important
Pick up the phone and call her- your best friend. Be true, wasnât she your best friend when you lived with her during the times you had a breakdown, break up, tough manager, and what not. You used to talk your heart out, but not now. Do it again, and again and again. I do it, call her and talk to her like a girl- you dnt talk about my kid or cooking, rather I tell her how day went, what you ate and things that donât make sense too ð Talk Talk Talk as she loves listening to it.
6. Keep your nails ready to impress (not jst hands, but toes too) always, always!
Something that you used to be so fond and careful of- your nails. Be aware how they look. Always without fail. I have also stopped doing it but later realised, when you talk when you work when you write and when you eat, you and others look at your hands more than you thought of (thatâs why your hand gestures are important) So why delay? Go and get a manicure ð
7. Got a pimple, donât just let go!
Be worried, be bothered, be concerned, and be caring for your skin. I remember I used to work on my skin and hair in my college days. No doubt I had ample time to do it, but now even though we donât have time, taking care of your skin does not ask for a lot. Just a nice routine of cleaning, moisturizing and toning your skin is enough. If your skin is girly, no one can stop you from feeling like a girl.
8. Laugh Laugh Laugh- like no ones watching
Would not write anything about it. Just laugh- smile- more than you do now.
