Today is Mother's Day and I'm writing about my dear Mom.. She's going to be very excited to see this I know! :P :D
7 things about my Mom that inspire me!
Always Look Your Best
Never have I seen a day when she's not dressed to the T.. always well groomed and well dressed...she absolutely loves to dress up and a lot of times she's late to work because of this :P
She (and dad) has always pushed me and my brother to dress well, present ourselves well,at all times!
From bright colours to latest trends to artificial matching accessories, she's got it all!
Where do you think I caught the bug from?? :P
Fitness and Health freak
She's always been in good shape and even now for her age she's more than in good shape..with her hectic work timings she tries to keep herself fit by either yoga, gym,walking for an hour or plain exercises at home..She made it a point I learn yoga and I'm quite thankful for that... :)
We have ALWAYS had home cooked healthy food... buying bread used to be a rare phenomenon in our house.. and she has always been against us eating MAGGI... and we never had chips or wafers at home to munch on when we were bored... Now that I'm married I follow the same! I cook everyday.. no ready to eat.. no packaged food.. though my husband loves bread and maggi I limit buying it as much as possible..
Freedom to Dress
She has never stopped me from dressing the way I want, occasionally warning me if and when I took things for granted.. :P
When I was a little girl she would force me to wear short skirts and dresses as I was shy even to wear something sleeveless :P
Nevertheless I grew up to someone who is comfortable wearing anything and everything as long as it suits me or doesn't look indecent.. She's a huge supporter of my bog and my looks and shares it happily on her FB wall.. Isn't that cute??!! :)
Her skin is to die for.. at this age she has skin 5times better than mine.. no exaggerations..
She was undoubtedly gifted with awesome, oil free, pimple free skin (how blessed!) but she's taken absolute care of it over the years.. eating right, sleeping right and exercising are surely included.. but I have seen her apply various masks and scrubs on a regular basis.. but it's all NATURAL!
After eating any fruit she would rub or apply the leftovers on her face.. EVERYTIME! :P :D
Anything natural available in the kitchen is good for her skin.. she has literally never ever applied any cream except Johnson's baby cream and no soap,no face-wash at all..
She looks like my elder sister is a very common compliment she receives which I'm secretly proud of :) :P
(I hope she doesn't kill me for letting out all her beauty secrets :P)
Express your Kindness
It's not enough if you are a good person or kind at heart.. it's true or proved only if you express it.. Your deeds are good or kind,not you.. nobody can show this better than her.. She can go out of her way to help people who are in need..whoever it might be.. and hence without wonder she has an army of people ready to help her in every possible way whenever she's in need..
And the army includes a separate battalion of house-maids too! :P Living in Mumbai you can imagine the importance of having house-maids who would come readily at your service anytime anywhere when you are in need!
She's awesome with people.. gets along with everyone and anyone so well and so naturally.. a quality that I sadly have not picked up at all.. I get awkward and quiet around too many people :P
She naturally emits positivity or has some aura around her that people get so easy and cosy around her
She recently became a mother-in-law.. ohhh it's amazing how the two get along!:D
My brother and I are twins! So I guess multitasking started for her right there :P
From looking after us to working to cooking and taking care of the house.. she's even taken our studies for hours together for exams (one would go to dad and one would be with mom :P )
All this didn't even stop her from taking things slow on her career front.. she's studied for exams and have taken promotion after promotion!
All this along with taking care of her skin and health and fitness and dressing up.. :O
ALSO, she has time to socialise with friends not only from work, but also from her college and even school friends! Whooaaa! :O
You may think she likes to rest on Sundays?? NOPE! she likes to drag dad out of bed to either for shopping or movie or justttt a visit to the nearby mall.. but no sitting still in one place! :P
I hope I get even half as good as her when it comes to multitasking!
Happy Mother's Day Mummuuuu!
