Heyy How are you doing ? Hope everyone is lazy like me these days with winter at its peak. I am enjoying to the core with my favourite Sambar , Fish curry and other Amma’s signature dishes at home. Anshika is pampered , I am surprised that even now she has some bangles in her right hand that she has not taken off yet. I hope that she has started falling in love with her girly avatar .
Amma is fine , though she finds the winter unbearable here. Has cold and cough now and is taking medications .
Are you a resolution type person ? Like the one who takes resolution and sticks on to it no matter what ? I AM NOT !! I don’t remember any resolutions taken by me in the past years. But this year with my Bumps n Baby I wish to have resolutions. Want to know what all ?
1. Will always treasure my parents especially Amma
As the youngest of 3 children, that too a girl , I was pampered to the core and grew up as a spoilt brat in every way . So I never realized the value of certain relationships , especially my Amma’s. Its said “ you know how a mother feels , after you become one !! ”.. So true in my case. I hope it’s the same with you too. I had been taking my Amma for granted these many 26 years of my life . Even last time when I went to Kerala , I had a spat with her and hurt her verbally. Though I said SORRY later , I know that the wounds in her heart still is unhealed . And do you know how it feels for me ? Pathetic!! I cried a lot and apologized for what I did, but realized Amma’s heart is so fragile , I never cared for it all these years.
So this time , when Amma was about to come , I thought of saying sorry directly to her. Mom being a Mom, she is always ready to forgive. My heart sank, my throat dried up when I saw tears in my mom’s eyes. It would be the same reaction I would have when my daughter turns up like me in future , isn’t ?
So first resolution is that I will never take my Amma for granted , will always make sure that I don’t hurt her in any way.
2. Habit of Reading Books
I am not an avid reader though I can’t stop reading Bollywood gupshups. I need to read good books , that’s my second resolution
3. Personal Grooming / Care
Before motherhood, I was very particular about my personal grooming. Post baby, it all went upside down. Even now I look like a zombie . I will take care of my personal grooming
4. Reduce the usage of plastic
Seriously , I have to think about that too. I have to get rid of all that plastic covers and start on ONLY cloth / jute bags be it for shopping / grocery
5. My efforts for Bumps n Baby
Bumps n Baby will remain as one of my top priorities in my life forever. Would work hard on blogging
All these are my New Year resolutions . How about you ? Do share with us in comments.
