A Mothers Day Prayer

I pray for mothers and children who are fortunate to be around each other, may they be grateful.

For the mothers who silently mourn the loss of their unborn babies and children, and the children that mourn the loss of their mother, comfort them.

For the new mothers, give them strength to embrace the ups and downs of motherhood.

For the single mothers trying to hold it together, may they find the strength to do so.

For the mothers that need a break and can’t get one, that they may find moments to relax.

For the stay at home mothers and for the working mothers who work around the clock, may they find the right balance.

For the mothers raising a special child, give them the patience and strength to do so.

For the mothers caring for a sick child and for children caring for a sick mother, give them comfort and courage.

For the mothers rejected by their child, may they be reunited.

For the mothers trying to restart their career, may they find the right job.

For the mothers in need of self esteem and confidence, that they may see that they are fiercely and wonderfully made.

For the mother worrying and waiting for her child to return, may she hear her child’s voice to put her mind at ease.

For the mothers who have strained relationships with their children, may they find their way to each other.

For the mothers and children battling life threatening illnesses, give them strength and courage.

For the mothers that have lost their soulmate’s, may their children fill their loneliness with happiness.

Lastly, I pray for the mothers who have gone on before us, may they continue to watch over their children and be at peace.

Flame

Like a moth to a flame

I am drawn to you.

Round and round I fly

In the warmth of your glow.

Fly to you,

And I can sore.

Fly into you,

And I’ll fall to the floor.

Come alive

Sinking.

Your head can’t focus,

Your legs are buckling.

You call out for someone to hold you,

And there in those arms

It doesn’t matter if you go,

There is no fear or worry.

You feel its just easy to let every thing go.

A little worried voice calls out to you,

And for a second you focus

On those terrified little eyes.

You feel your strenght return,

The cold sweat begins to disappear,

And you realise that even though you feel like you have fallen apart

You want to survive

That little voice needs you to be alive.

The things he says….

Many women in India and around the world are victims of Verbal Abuse. What saddens me is that many of these women don’t realise that they are in abusive relationships and live with their partners thinking that it won’t impact their mental and emotional health.

According to Indian Law, Section 3 in The Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005, verbal and emotional abuse includes—

(a) insults, ridicule, humiliation, name calling and insults or ridicule specially with regard to not having a child or a male child; and
(b) repeated threats to cause physical pain to any person in whom the aggrieved person is interested.

Wiki describes verbal abuse “as a negative defining statement told to the victim or about the victim, or by withholding any response, thereby defining the target as non-existent. If the abuser does not immediately apologize and retract the defining statement, the relationship may be a verbally abusive one. Anger underlies, motivates and perpetuates verbally abusive behavior.

I came across this educating article written by Dr. Steven Stosny, Ph.D. entitled ‘Are you dating an Abuser?’ I have enclosed the link below, I think it captures the Verbal Abuser and Verbal Abuse perfectly.

You are reading this post, maybe because your looking for another excuse not to believe that you are a victim of Verbal Abuse or maybe your looking for reasons to stay… reasons to leave…. What ever it maybe…. Please don’t let him tear you down. Make a change. Remember that what you allow will only continue. Your daughter is watching and listening and she will only grow up thinking that it’s ok to be spoken to that way cause you allowed her to think that it is. Your son will grow up thinking that he can talk to women that way cause you never did anything.

Someone

Chose to be with someone who is your best friend,

Someone that makes you laugh,

Someone who knows where you come from,

Someone who strengthens your weaknesses and is in awe of your strengths.

Be with someone who makes you want to be a better person,

Someone who doesn’t only take but gives back in the way you want,

Someone who listens and wants the best for you,

Someone who is intelligent and can give you advice.

Be with some one that wants to see you be all that you can be,

Someone that respects you and your decisions,

Someone that can look past your scars,

Someone that can love you passionately and gently.

Someone who wants to be your partner until the end of time.

Choices, Choices!!

Life is all about the choices that you make, every choice that you make defines you.

Stop what you are doing.

Look around you.

Where you are at this moment….the thoughts in your head…. what you are currently feeling, even the fact that you are reading this post, are all because of a choice that you have made consciously or unconsciously. We go through each and every day making choices that impact our very being.

So where am I going with this? Read on..

Your life, at this very moment is because of your past choices. You don’t like what you are doing? You don’t want to feel the way you feel? Make a choice to change it. Only you have the power to change what you want in your life. How ever difficult it may seem, how ever complicated it may be, all it takes is for you to make a choice to do or to stop doing something in your life!

The universe throws us so many choices everyday. There is always another road, even if you think that you are at a dead end. Most life changing choices are never easy, but if you want to turn your life around, you must be prepared to walk down an unknown road, be prepared for sweet chaos.

The choice is yours and yours alone.

You have one life, make a choice to be happy and live with no regrets.

Love and Happiness

Let love bind you both but let happiness fuel each of you.

I was always of the opinion that love and happiness go hand in hand. Years ago, that was all I believed in. However…i have grown older… and wiser and have come to understand that this pair of love and happiness do go hand in hand and they don’t. They exist on their own and off course together they become a beautiful symphony.

I was reminded very recently from an Instagram post about this very thought and have decided to blog about it. So.. let’s talk about love…the love between two people. We have all fallen in love. Remember all those butterflies and you can’t think straight kind of love… or the he gives me peace love…the one you will spend the rest of your life with kind of love….. So many different variations of love. We have all seeked it. We all want it. We all want love.

So now let’s talk of happiness… where does that come from? Does it come from the love that you seek or/and receive? Yes it does and it doesn’t. Stay with me now…. if we seek happiness from others or in others, we are going to end up feeling empty one day. Why? Because, true happiness comes from with in, it comes from being all that you can be, it comes from being honest with yourself and with those around you, it comes from living with no regrets…it comes from a place deep within.

If you are in love, don’t lose your self in it.. as your love evolves remember that you also evolve. If you are seeking love… stop and focus on you. Love will come because when you are happy from within you are all the more attractive, your personality will stand out. Do what you love, do what you care about.. live life for u and together u will be strong, independent people bound by love and fueled with happiness from within.

To love another we must first love our selves. To be happy together,we must first be happy our selves.
