First of all, a grand salute to all the woman of this world. Be it from any country, economic background and all other demographics. Its astounding how you do what you do.
After becoming a mother recently I realized what we are actually made of! Giving birth to another human being, making that tiny human from scratch and nurturing and caring for the child even before it is born, now that is marvelous. What follows after is more amazing. All mothers go through this, but only after going through it by myself did I realize its true essence. The sleepless nights, the exhaustion and the constant worry for your child. I think now I will always worry for my child till my last breathe. It has made me realize how much I took my parents for granted. Just like all the kids I thought my parents were just normal but now I know that they are super parents. Just like all parents, they too sacrificed so much for me. My mother is a super mom. She never stopped taking care of me, even now when I have a child of my own, my mother is there to take care of me. Now I know how she gets the strength. Its being a parent that makes you this strong.
In this new phase of my life, I am just juggling through the days. I have to take care of my baby, my family (including in laws), study and keep the home clean and a happy place. Phew!!! I don’t know how but I do manage to do most of the things I mentioned. The baby is my priority, but I also have to take care of others, take care of my own studies and still manage to stay up at night for my princess( yes, I have a baby girl). And I am not trying to sound too great as I know almost every other mom does this every day. I am just acknowledging this for everyone, not just myself that what a great job all of you are doing out there. I feel tad bit bad that it never dawned upon me before.
Trying to do it all and yet surviving each day and keeping your family happy and healthy, all you mothers out there are the real superheroes. Much love to all of you.
