People rightly say home is the first school for a kid and for me it totally holds good! I am what I am because of my mother. She always says when she saw me first I threw a smile at her as if I knew her from millions of years – I guess that is true! I have never bonded so much with anybody like I have bonded with her! And she too considers me as not just her daughter but as a best friend.
Things I learnt from my mother-
She taught me to love everyone all the time by winning over momentary hate and repeated that its necessary to have mental balance and it can be achieved only through meditation-
She never gave importance to mindless religion and rituals but taught us her simple religion that is – Do things that do not hurt anybody and love as much as possible and take up things that you sub consciously feel good.
She asked us to question our life every now and then and see where we are heading.
Be independent is what she always told me and I dedicate my career to her.
She stressed on importance of developing intuition or listening to our inner voice as that is true quality of humans that we rarely use.
Most importantly I learnt how to trust! She not once asked me about what I did or where I went when I was alone here and struggling but said I trust you!
She maintained that inner beauty is important and not outer.
She always asked us to defend ourselves against injustice and stay silent and accept when we are at mistake.
She taught us that love comes in many forms and you will know when you find it and not to lose heart when it doesn’t come that easily.
Though she never was and is a doting mother I learnt that it’s ok to punish when your kids do something wrong.
She believed in good humor and hence it comes naturally to me.
She urges me to learn music as I have it in me and which I am yet to heed 🙂
She said smiling not only enhances outer but inner beauty too :)so I always try and smile often rarely a fake one 🙂
I wonder how at times she knows without me telling what I am going through even when I am 300 km away from her maybe that is love:)
She taught me to appreciate good work loudly and clearly 🙂
She said its ok to bend a lil to save a relationship but never to compromise in excess, I know not all say that.
She said if you really want to be spiritual why not try brightening up others life with your deeds and love.
Last but not the least she said it’s ok to cry when you really feel so.
I guess its what everybody feel about their mothers:) she is my true role model perhaps my only role model:)
