Wow and wow. How time flies! It’s been a full year and three more months since my last post. Since my daughter was born, my life has been mostly revolving around raising a happy child and educating a strong and responsible little citizen. It was fun. It was absolutely exhausting. I have grown. I have learned to be a stronger person. I have witnessed my own power and am convinced of my own value, more than ever. I have learned to love myself and her unconditionally.
But, I’m still me, the person who is here on this planet to experience my own life. Now it’s my life with my family, instead of just my life. I still love to travel. I still love to draw. I still love to make handicrafts. I still love to read and write. I still love the things that I love to do. In fact, I have achieved more than before I had her. In a way, she has become my inspiration, my educator, my conscience, a part of who I am. For this, I am truly thankful.
A full year plus has passed. And what a year! An academic year starting from apprehension to trust, from work to school to after school activities, from clueless to a much savvier learner. What a privilege to be a mom, to be HER mom.
The new semester is going to start in a few days. I am smiling to myself as I am typing, knowing in my mind that everything will work out and go great despite inevitable ups and downs, feeling in my heart the unfading love made ever-strong by both joy and tears. Smile. Go forward. Here we come!
